dont worry you'll see more action at around episode 20+, stick with it.
personally i stalled for a couple weeks because i thought it was kind of slow but once it got to the action and fighting it surprised me

hoping it focuses on the humor and not the action myself, anime like this always fail utterly once they start focusing solely on the action.

Um... I've watched more than the first one, but why does he have to lose his clothes EVERY time he gets the dying will bullet? First time? Ok, funny, but thats enough.

Hah, I don't know. And I keep wondering why he has so many school uniforms, he must have torn up about 30 of them already.

But what troubles me more is the fact that neither Yamamoto nor Gokudera, or anyone else, find it strange that at random times, Tsuna just runs around in his underwear. And it's happened so many times as well e___e

I know I'd be pretty disturbed if any of my friends suddenly ripped off their clothes, ran around in underwear, and then returned to normal, still only in underwear.

It's hilarious. It may seem plotless at first but later on it develops a storyline.

I've heard good things about this series and it's about the only long-running shonen currently airing that I haven't seen. This first episode shows some promise even if it's not great so I'll keep watching.

What a weird first episode, I don't even know what to make of it! xD

I'll stick with it and see where this goes.

WTF is this?!?!?!? This is NOT at ALL what I expected from an anime with the word 'Hitman" in the title. We've got an annoying baby and a kid that loses his clothes when he gets the "dying will." I don't know what to think of this.

I guess I'll have to watch a few more eps before I can honestly decide whether or not it's worth my time.

That was almost badass, but ripping his hair was a little... weird

Started watching and that was quite weird. :D So first 20 episodes are comedy and then it starts being serious? Tsu has quite messy room. Just like me. xD

WTF is this? seriously the voices for the 2 main characters are crappy as hell. i only wanted to watch this som ppl recommended this to me, and its one of the most fave shonen anime's. it was also in ultimate jump stars, and they chose awesome animes for that game, but this......
also this whole ripping clothes should have only happened once, making it happen 100+ times will just be stupid.
and just look at his hair, WTF is it sopossed to be?!
o god im on such a rant becuz of this 1st episode.

First time jumping on this band wagon. ive watched bleach, naruto, one piece, enjoy them all to some extent, with the acception of bleach probably being the worst out of the 3. Now im checking out hitman reborn. I hear that if you can muster the first season, then the rest of the series is pretty good so im willing to casually try and enjoy it. It takes alot for me to really drop a show.

So far i have to say nothing special about episode 1. This entire concept of the "dying will bullet" is kind of awkward and strange to me and tsuna having his shirt ripped off makes no sense. So the main character reborn t urns out to be a chibi character lol. Though i can tell he is much more wise and intelligent. Looks can be deceiving. But will see how it goes from here.

I do like the level of comedy, i just hope it doesn't focus on all comedy, i do like well developed characters, dramatic events, emotional conflicts and the action when im watching shonen series.

yeah lol can't say i really enjoy it. This has to be the worst 1st season of any shonen series ive watched. I found alot more enjoyment in watching the naruto fillers from the original series. I am currently actually on episode 14 but its taking me literally a month to watch that many, im watching it along with other shows though to maintain the enjoyment of watching anime, cause marothoning this would just drive me crazy.

Damn, looks like I finally started watching Reborn today. A friend of mine liked it awhile ago so I decided to give it a shot.

Hitman reborn! *bullseye*. OP song is decent I guess. Kinda funny how his 'tutor' turns out to be a little midget Reborn. Oh I can see where this going now. Weird/5.

Best confession ever

A few people have said that it gets better around episode 20, but does that mean I have to put up with 19 more episodes of THIS?! Sigh...

Re-watching it for the 3rd time. I probably shouldn't do that from the start 'cause it just introduces the characters (and Tsuna ridicules himself like no one else), but it's still one of the best anime I've watched. ^__^

I decided to watch the anime after reading the manga, and I have two problems. WHY ARE GOKUDERA'S AND RYOHEI'S HAIR SILVER?! DAFAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHH?! Gokudera should have red hair and Ryohei should be blond!

That was really funny. I'm looking forward to a time when I can marathon all 200+ episodes, but I'll put it on-hold for now.

Very boring first episode with an incredible slow pacing... I really do hope that gets better, but one thing is sure that this anime already sucks from the start...

Kinda boring lol. Characters are pretty cute though. Now I understand when Gintama jokes constantly about an anime beginning with a late-to-school MC.
