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

Didn't expect much from this, so I wasn't disappointed at all
it was done by studio deen nuff said, and Sugita has become my only motivation to continue on

Yeah the art in the game is way better. Hakuouki was kinda shitty looking too.

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

I actually really enjoyed this episode. I like animes set in this kind of era and the character designs are beautiful. Will keep watching for sure.

I think i would watch it for the comedy between the Shugogo-Guys. The Episode itself was pretty boring, but the highlight was Kosuke Okano...that dude had to be hyperactive or something.

DEF.

I enjoyed this. I thought it was pretty good... a little rushed, but I never lost interest.

I look forward to episode 2.

I think the story has potential... it's just a shame that the art isn't very nice, and the animation is pretty terrible. When that guy did a backflip off the roof? I actually laughed out loud, the animation was so awful.

I don't like any of the characters so far, though I find the heroine somewhat more believable than the harem of boys. I'll keep watching for a bit. Hopefully the story will make up for the crappy animation in the end?

well, with characters I only have one thing to say. They better do justice to the character design of my darling Ryu. So far as in bishie material, he's the one I'm looking forward to the most.

But really, if Studio Deen makes a crappy adptation of this great game, I will haunt then after I die.

This is just bad. I'll give it one more episode max before I make a verdict.

Watch this get licensed by FUNi or someone in the next two weeks. Just watch.

i know right!? even though he's a supporting character he deserves to be in the opening. maybe if they have a different opening halfway through the series, he'll be in it. I'm really curious about ryu's design for the anime. ryu I will wait for you to show up, so for now I have yuuichi <3 <3 and O-chan of course!

Ryu was such a popular character. how can they be so stupid that they don't put such a popular character even though he was supporting in the OP?

Half the people watching this anime are only doin g it for Yuuchi and Ryu, mainly Ryu.
There had BETTER be a second opening where he comes along.

I had high hopes for this anime, cause the preview and all looked amazing. Now I watched the first episode and it was very boring IMO. But oh well, will see how this will turns out.

What's with all the hate? I thought the first episode was great and very promising. Sure the art and most of the voice acting isn't top notch, but the the potential is there plus the ED is fantastic.

yea cuz in harems where there are 5 girls and 1 guy the guy is some kinda superman. /sarcasm

But yeah, in reverse harems, the guys are cool, the girl is not.

in harems, the guy is weak, the girls are not.

its the same in both genres.

This was terrible, but in light of the Rock Lee spinoff, this is probably not the worst of the season

I thought it was okay. I like some of the characters but not all of them. The one thing i truely hated was the animation of those god things. To me those death gods or whatever looked like a pokemon mixed with one of the scooby doo villians things.

Meh this first ep wasn't that bad imo, it was just them introducing characters. I am sorta interested in where this will go.

That ED song is awesome.

I actually enjoyed the first episode as well..and I'm looking forward to more. : )

I feel like its getting too much negativity, when its only the first episode..but whatever, to each his own I guess.
I am a sucker for romance!!!!

Boring first episode. Before it airs, I was actually excited because the main idea seemed better than Hakuouki.

I think it was a pretty nice start, and though the characters are really stereotypical, I liked it :) If the story's development is interesting, I think this will become a nice anime.

I haven't played the game but it feels very standard 'game starting background story' so I don't really know what's the fuss about the pacing o.O Also seeing as there are so many sequels, dunno what to make of the story, so no high expectations but probably no great plot twist or whatever.

Not very interested in any of the guys, girl only mildly annoying - all good as long as she doesn't cry in a corner. Going to continue watching.

That OP is awesome, I have it on repeat, demanding FLAC and BD of the OP >:D

WHAT?! how was that bad?

I thought it was really good and funny!! Mahiro-kun has a really short temper, he kind of reminds me of edward elric.
I think my favourite out of the 5 from that first episode would be Takuma, i love his eyes and voice

Can't really say how I feel about it so far. I was a bit disappointed with the first episode though. The introduction of characters felt very rushed, and everything was just put straight out there. It's 13 episodes, right? Maybe if it were a longer anime it would have more excitement and take more time with the intros and all that. ...probably not. Anyway, I do like the characters' personalities, and the animations look beautiful, as well as the OP! I'll continue to watch and see where this goes. ^-^
