Am I the only one who is only looking forward to this anime because of the opening song?

That was...okay.

To be honest, Sugita was pretty weak as Takuma. I expected something Gintoki-esque or deep like Raven within his character.

And it's nice to see Ringo from Penguindrum as the lead again.

Annoying that you can't address the characters properly only by their voice actors names. It's a good memory practice to learn the characters names and write the names down in your comments. Are you lazy?
Well, if you've been around a little, you notice that about half of her posts are just one word, like "Yay~" or whatever, so...
nice to see people leading useless lives can be given purpose through needless negativity...
> Has seen much more anime + manga than me.
> Accuses me of leading a useless life.

LOL irony.

Made especially hilarious in that you target me instead of the one actually bashing her for her posts, and all I did was state a fact that anyone with eyes could easily observe.

umad?

I thought it was pretty ok. There were some inconsistencies with the animation and scene to scene but backgrounds were nice I mean, come on. And that OP. I can't wait for April 18th to get it.



Don't troll the thing just cause you don't like reverse harems or the first episode.

Yes you could say that I'm bashing. She might get hurt, but a lot of people like her should start realizing being obsessive cannot help to lead better life in the future. Getting hurt because of others words is the best experience to think more about life. If you ever be able to translate the negativity people giving you into positivity, you have a good soul.

If you're talking to me, my post was directed entirely at octal9. I don't have a problem with what you said.

But if your post was directed at him, too, then you're totally wasting your time.

Errr. I thought it was quite boring, especially for a first episode. Will watch more episodes before really judging though. I happen to like reverse harem anime.

I don't mind when something is cliche if it is done well, so far there is nothing to look forward to in this series and no indication that it will be any better than more established titles. Will watch a couple more and drop if it does not get better...

Oh my, what a boring 1st episode.
I was hoping for some action, to show what she's suppose to do as a princess.

Somewhat reminds me of the pace of Blood C.

I like the art and character designs, though i didn't play the game before.
The voicing seems abit incompatible, but maybe i need to get used to it.

I don't like the girl character though, still annoying.

Hope there's some reverse harem bishounen parody anime.

As always I hate this kind of heroine.
Love Mahiro and Yuuichi haha, I don't think the jokes are funny though..

I don't expect much from Deen, but I guess I'll give it a try

Isn't this series is an established title? Since the game itself has 3 "sequels".

I'm not sure how I rate the pacing in this episode, some people said it is slow and boring while some people who mostly play the game said the pacing is too fast.

I wonder if the studio will sticks to their original plan about this anime being 2 cours?

if anime/manga is a waste of life, what are we doing here? personally i find them to have given me much entertainment as well as a much wider view of the world in general.....is being well read and knowledgeable a bad thing? i often find in japanese culture and manga/anime in particular a much deeper view of life/experience than in most other forms of media - some is just pure entertainment, but there is definitely some profound feelings/thoughts in some of the things i've enjoyed over my lifetime - not trying to beef with anyone personally, just wondering why all the insults are necessary - there is enough darkness in the world already so why pile on the bad karma?

This. I liked that first episode, I'm interested despite the Deen QUALITY. And I don't know why people find the heroine annoying, I think she acts rather normally, at least for the moment.

@DraconisMarch I mostly talk here about the one you said that I've been bashing her posts. I usually talk in general and wasn't talking to you directly only that I said yes to you that I was bashing. No hard feelings from my side to you, no worries.

@octal9 I totally agree with what you said in this page. I enjoy anime/manga mostly during my free time. I learn a lot and found new things about Japan which sometimes makes me make more research. Also I use anime/manga as a way for my memory practice. I only think there are people wasting too much of their precious time by watching too many shows through the days & weeks. Also no insults or offending so far from my side. I was only stating the obvious so maybe adults will mature and understand more.

no offense taken by me - just expressing my opinions...just feel bad for people who get attacked on here for silly reasons - after all aren't we talking about what seems like it will probably be just another mediocre anime (although hard to say after just one episode)?

Hiiro no kakera just reminded me why I disliked Otome games/animes. Not enough substance and interesting characters to my tastes.

I've not been discussing that unfortunately as I've not got to watch the 1st episode yet. Eventually someone will have to say something to people like that, you know. If you considered the reasons here to be silly, that's how you understood it. It's no problem and even if my messages of advice weren't delivered, I careless. This discussion may be worthless, but because I had it I did say it at last - generally of course.

PROTECT ME SUGITA~~~

Other than this episode feeling very rushed, I didn't really have any problems with it. Reverse harems are usually like this. I expected Namikawa to use more of a rough tone for his character, since he seemed like that type, but I was very wrong. He's actually kind of cute. Too bad there was no OP :<

@arguers - Stop with the rudeness (especially you Shadow-Chan) and major off-topic discussion.

Eh..it was really rushed, and the beginning made me go "WTF IS HAPPENING.." But uh..not gonna judge just yet.

The protagonist isn't the MOST annoying. I still say the cake for that goes to Haruka from Uta Pri. She's the most annoying thing I've ever seen in a long time.

I'll watch the rest of this but w/e.

The first episode was okay, but it was rushed; it seemed that the directors wanted to fit everything in one episode?
And about a few seconds into the episode (prior to the appearance of the name of the show), I had a weird sensation that I had seen that part of the animation somewhere before from a different anime or may it was just my imagination that was playing a trick in my mind.

The characters so far were so-so. I wish the directors could have chosen better voice actors for Takuma Onizaki and Mahiro Atori. I don't know, but the voices for the characters were a bit off and did not seem to fit their characters.

The animation (itself) and the music were okay as well.

I will have to give this anime a couple of more episodes and see if I want to really continue watching this anime when it fully airs in April.

Really the graphics of the scenery is very pretty but the characters' design is more beautiful in the game

I liked the op music, the voice of fujita maiko is pretty, I became fan her!!

my favorite character is yuuichi ♥, the tamaki and mahiro are funny, the fox litlle is cute!!!

And now just missing to appear the shinji and ryou!

I'm still kinda meh on this series. The first episode was a bit dull and definitely seemed like a reverse harem. Not just that, there was one character that wasn't even introduced.

I will say that the art and style is pretty good so if they execute an interesting storyline, I will continue to watch in April. Does this remind anyone of the manga Black Bird btw...?

THIS!
Aw, exactly the scenery shots where so beautiful *.*...I would like to live in place like this... I wouldn't mind even clean it xD...

Ehm, my first impression is quite good, the heroine is not so annyoing so far (like Haruka from UtaPri for example), Yuuichi is really sweet I love narcoleptic characters :D, not mention his powers... I love Sugita's voice but somehow it doesn't get together with Takuma's look...Well maybe I get used to it :D...
Mahiro will be agreat comedy character, and Suguru is quite cool ^^

Strangest front flip I've ever seen. lulz.

I don't know what to think about this anime... didn't leave a big impact on me and wasn't all too interesting or exciting. Seemed to have the basic cliché plotlines of "PROTECT ZE PRINcESS!", animation and transitions choppy... all the critiques have already beend stated. Why am I even bothering ... haha

Yes. Meh. I might give it 2 more episode chances...

As expected from DEEN's quality. Although I admit the animation on the scenery was the only thing I liked in this episode. Everything else was terrible but I think it might be better later on.

Not that I have much hope from it -.-

Eh. It's okay. Horrible pacing. Cute guys (they're protectors too! How much more cliche can we get D;). One main girl. The usual shoujo. (Probably adapted from a simulation game -- but that's just a guess) Oh wellz. I'll still watch it because of Gintoki <3 I won't have him for a while so his voice will do for a year :D And that Grandma was a flashback from the okami of Kissuiso :)

I don't want to rate it yet, but depending on how it goes the show will get somewhere between a 6 and 7 for me.

The one thing I do enjoy though is the inclusion of gods and youkai. It gives the show a nice feel to it. With Natsume Yuujinchou Shi ending (and that I just watched Hotarubi no Mori e), I'd love some more youkai <3

Oh, and if I played simulation games, I'd SO go after the guy with the silver hair. <3 xDD

It is kinda funny though at parts, maybe I'll get more into it later on. :D

3/5 - Really bad pacing. But kinda funny and cute. I like the feel of the show too.
Oh, and although it's overused, the 'fate' and only one purpose in life plot sounds interesting.
And pretty sure the OTP is with Gintoki.

I don't know why everyone is saying they didn't like it. I loved Hakuouki, which DEEN had worked on previously, so I have the feeling I'll like this one too. And the girl isn't annoying to me. She's okay, nothing really special, but she isn't super annoying.

I liked this episode :3 And I have the feeling that Yuuichi will be my favorite guy <3

I don't think it was too bad. It seems pretty well done for a show that was based off an otome game. The plot seemed rush, there was a few flaws with the animation, but the art was nice. I also didn't mind the girl. After watching Hakuouki, it's impossible for me to be annoyed at anything anymore.


hakuouki's ending is infuriating
