Overall, series was pretty good, especially once the action started picking up. However, Sunrise could have done a lot better job of establishing the context than the first three episodes, which were quite frankly crap. Thankfully, the rest of the series was good enough to be a saving grace.

Looking forward to the second season

Alright my main question here is.
Why do we have to wait for summer to watch 2nd season this is happening with more anime recently why not make 24 or 26 seasons like they used to?
It just doesn't make any sense to stop in the middle of the good parts.

About the episode.
It was great i really enjoyed it and some new figures appeared and i wonder what there powers and personality's are.
Things should get interesting.
The way the Pope's forces where defeated was also nice Horizon is pretty powerful and i wonder what she will do next season.

Masazumi looked nice in female clothes tho there could be a bigger difference to the male ones.

Production cost. It's not about they don't want to make it 24 episodes, it's more about they won't gamble on it. Most animation companies that makes 12-13 episodes is just playing it safe, because those airing rights and production cost is way more expensive than it used to be.

Basically, they're waiting for DVD/BD Sales so they won't have "budget problems" in the next season.

Same thing that's happening to Fate/Zero. You don't want to see a "low budget" animation right? So just be patient.

I thought the baseball enemies were kind of over the top and made the show a little silly. I still loved the series even though it didn't really pick up until like episode 7 or 8. 10/10 for the episode 8/10 for the season.

Okay, those last 4 minutes made me go wtf but over all I loved this episode and I can't wait until we find out about all the new characters introduced.



Aw man, we have to wait until Summer 2012? Oh well, this will give me time to read the novels.

I enjoyed this show a lot. The huge cast of characters all with their interesting characteristics and the very different setting won me over. Sure, it takes a lot of thinking and concentration to follow the story but that makes it more enjoyable in my mind.

Favorite anime of the season for me. 10/10

That was a great way to end, love the mood throughout the entire episode. Horizon was finally able to regain one of her emotion. Just seeing Horizon and Toori together like that is so heartwarming. Aww they were even holding hands while sleeping together.

Toori, wow what a guy. Still grabbing Horizon's ass in a situation like that. Then while they all under attack at the end, hes got no shirt on with that dumb look on his face. He wins everything.

The way they end it got me so excited again, this anime is really good at doing that every episode. Every single characters are all so effing awesome. Can't wait for next season, the war has only just began.

That's exactly the thing and as the economy is now, one can only assume drastic measures are being taken. There is a loss in consumerism of anime. Hence the explanation of why they do that.

You want a IMHO? It's because he tried to have intercourse with Horizon only to find out that it was impossible so in his mind if he can be with her naked at least then it's enough for him. You know to feel her. One proof of that is his ass touching. It had particular attention to say the least. That being said this is why I think he was naked. He wants to be as close to Horizon despite her not being totally human.

One aspect of that I can introduce is in the following,

no way a robot or anything remotely of it as machine may produce that. Whether she will have a human aspect in the future more than now is to see. I love Toori! He is my man! As in close to being blood brothers. I just hope Horizon does not get overworked on being jealous of his other ecchi antics. I hope.

The first season is average. They were able to spread over 13 eps what could have been done in just 4-5 eps.

Well that was an epic ending. The scene with the rush to get the cargo ship docked on Musashi was great and the explosion so detailed. I loved the emotional intensity of the scene of the Armanent of Deadly Sin from Horizon. I enjoyed it after the action packed previous four episodes. Definitely was a highlight anime of the last season and possibly year. I really liked the devotion to making the animation smooth and graphically impressive while delivering a great experience in sound for the scenes. Integrating the opening, Terminated, into the closing scenes of this episode worked wonders and brought about feelings of nostalgia. Plotwise, I think it set the stage for the next season greatly though I hope we can get a rematch of Muneshige v Honda, as well get every fighter involved against the invading baseball players and gym team. Overall the anime had an excellent balance of fight scenes and exposition to bring life to the world as well as deliver epically on battles. The music in the anime was amazing and made me wish the soundtrack was available. Often it felt like it would have made for an excellent RPG with the battle theme.

8 / 10

I must say, great ep to close the first season. Which brings me to ask, Where are we now in terms of the light novels? With no real full TL out (at least it's being worked on), I can't really say for certain so please correct me if I'm wrong. Did this season cover the entire first volume set? From what I've been reading from the LN synopses, it looks like the 2nd season will at least start the 2nd volume set.

9/10 for me

"I'm sorry... that I can't make you horny." -Toori

I didn't understand why he said that at first then I remembered that the deadly sin Innocentius had was Lust. Poor Toori.. he can't even make the girl he loves horny. LOL :D

Didn't have any high expectations when started watching this and I'm satisfied with what I got. After the few first episodes the oversized tits weren't as annoying to the eye as in the start so in the end it was an enjoyable watch. 7/10
Toori says some epic lines from time to time :D

I was emotionally moved again when Horizon with Toori used the Lype Thingamajig. I got goosebumps!

This is my favorite anime this season and I got to admit that KyoukaiSen is ten times better than
Fate/Zero in terms of adaptation. There wasn't a single disappointment in all episodes. Even the first three episodes got me really hooked.

Can't really wait for second season.

Not sure if Masazumi ever had any love interest in Toori in the first place.

Great episode, Toori and Horizon make such a cute couple even though hes serious he can still get away with rubbing her ass in a life and death situation.

9/10 - the baseball thing was silly but it was still fantastic end to the first season, cant wait for s2!

Some people speculate of 4 seasons needed to make the whole thing. Considering 2 Vol may be covered per season. Then yeah it makes sense.

So production costs are going up and consumption is going down are they trying to stop the Anime industry?
To me it seems like they are trying to decrease the number of Anime coming out and like they are trying to prevent that it attracts a large crowd.
Isihara's laws are a example of the last one.
And they seem to be effective.

Then there is also the declining economy which isn't any better for the industry.

Prior to airing, i came into this anime expecting very little but this anime quickly tore apart any pre conceived impressions i had beforehand. Horizon is probably the only anime of the fall season that i can say with confidence exceeded my expectations massively and i cant wait for S2.

Anyway a great way to close the season, Alot of stuff went down and alot of teasing for the second season. Truly is a mark of great show, from the beginning to the very end the developments never stop.

Very good last episode,awesome way to end a very good anime,the Deadly Sin scene was the best of the episode watching Horizon break like that made me sad....but Toori is the man graving her butt :D

The last 5m were awesome Tres Espanas invading Mushi,Beisball aces destroying the city toori naked with WTF face at end.....awesome!

As a whole this Anime was awesome at first it was hard since if you didnt investigate the background story but after episode 5 until the end the epicness begins,the OST is awesome,the Characters puff amazing,MC is a perv,the animation was nice and the best of all.....the story is pretty good,complex and original.
Without a doubt i give it a 9/10 and cant wait for next season!!

I wish the whole series was as good as its beginning and ending, I absolutely loved this episode and looking forward to the next season. What's with all the baseball stuff though? Horizon and Aoi had great moments. 5/5.

I gave the show a 6/10, and would have easily awarded it a seven if it wasn't for the middle part. I hope the next season will be an improvement.

YES SEASON 2 CONFIRMED SUMMER :DDD!!

Love how Horizon is getting her emotions back, as if shes like turning back to human (but shes still a robot o.O)! Loving how Toori is stickin up for his girl. @When there were sleeping in that house, holding hands, cute <3

Toori's knight (forgot her name) NICE BOOTY!
Um, Honda (boyish one) getting a makeover, haha. She's been looking pretty not bad, kind of cute in her own way.

Kind of a 'wtf' moment, BASEBALL? lol.. I guess..

Keep in mind that all of the "Harmonic Divine States" are represented by Academic Institutions which is also their "military".

In case of Tres Espana's "Alcalá de Henares", they are famous for their "Sports".

The last few episodes do make up a bit for the confusing start but still does not deserve any score above 6/10. I hope the pacing for season 2 will be much more reasonable.

Animation was stellar. Wow... the first 1/3 of this show was soooo bad... and the 2/3rds that remained we're spectacular. The action in this show and the warfare a political aspects were pure win.

7/10... only due to the terrible beginning portion and some of the superfluous characters. I will absolutely watch the second season.
