I still think they should have followed the first version of the manga...

The Manga is the manga, this is an anime. Their job is not to make the manga. -_-

I didn't say they should make a manga lol The anime is based on the manga so they should find a way to follow it more closely. If a manga gets animated it means it's good enough for that (I mean, it was chosen over a million of other good mangas), so why change the whole story? I mean, they didn't even explain why the teacher killed the girl(s). And who the hell sits on a roof and starts talking about life while the building is on fire? It's fine to change a few things from the manga of course, but at least they should make it good.

The first version of the manga was way better, so they should have chosen that one instead of the recent version. I didn't say I hated it, it's fine for a first episode and all, but I was expecting more being this manga one of my favorites.

Being completely unfamiliar with any other form of this series, I was underwhelmed. I thought the characters were rather bland, and what little they hinted at of the plot didn't catch my interest at all. Unless "supernatural detective show" sounds really appealing to you, I'm not gonna be recommending this one.

So far, my best anime for this season. Amazing OST, a great atmosphere and main character is interesting enough.

There were some rather strange choices made for the anime. What was with that leisurly chat on top of a burning building?
I know! In the manga, after the girl said 'they are beautiful', Yakumo was supposed to look startled and say 'this is the 1st time someone has said something like this'. Basically giving a little development between the two. But if you think about it, showing a a lovey-dovey scene in the 1st episode would definitely be weird.
Would have liked it more if Yakumo would have passed on the sister's msg through words.

I've been waiting for a long time for this to come out, and I must say, it was worth the wait. It wasn't a perfect first episode, by any means, but I've seen much worse. I haven't read either the novels or the manga adaptations, so it was all new to me.

Overall, I like the feel of it. I thought that the music was good (the OP and ED, especially), but some of it was a I can't wait for next week's episode!

The episode was pretty great, but it kinda felt rushed for me compared to the manga.
Oh well I guess that's just how I feel.
It's definitely gonna be a great series, though the ED wasn't really good, I loved the opening though. :)

I got dibs on Yakumo! He is so fine...laid back, smooth talking...and what was it that Gotou-san called him? The Magic Cat...yeah, he looks like a cat, long, lean, and so sleek...smooth, too. I enjoyed the first episode and look forward to more. ^^

Not too surprisingly the episode was even better with dialogue. I really liked Yakumo's character, he's not a complete white knight even though he seems to be a good guy. Enjoyed the cast and the dialogue, I thought it was well written. The mystery about who the killer was and the confrontation with him was a little weak but all in all a good debut.

And whatever sense of disbelief is required suspended I thought the moment on the rooftop was touching and visually interesting with the blazing inferno around them.

And is it just me or does Yakumo run like a girl? :P

It lacks so much of the humor the manga had, and really dumbs down how the case was solved. With only 20 mins and 13 episodes to work with i guess i just got to let a few things sidle.

Well that was rather thrilling. I think I'll stick with this.

Hmmm, a bishounen who acts like a stuck up faggot, now I understand why this is a shoujo.
