THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
----------------------------------------
Pretty interesting start to this. Jonah and Koko make for an interesting duo. Liked the car chase scene and shootout. Pretty intense there.

Not bad Not bad.


I need more Valmet :3


damn... another week until next Tuesday...

- Why do you watch this anime?
Do you want a serious answer or a joke answer?

- The serious answer.
It's because we got two beautiful ladies here!!

Hopefully White Fox doesn't disappoint.

After watching, they really didn't. As with most White Fox shows, this one is driven by the characters. Whether it's the duo in Katanagatari to the groups in Tears to Tiara/Steins;Gate, the characters create the mood, and essentially, make the show. Enjoyed the watch. A bit surprised that Koko's a chick. OST's fairly interesting.

"Her name is Koko. She is loko!" Best song ever. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EWe6hQSm2oA

Fantastic adaptation so far. Kept to the dialogue in the manga exceptionally well. I just assumed Koko would sound a bit older. And Valmet's voice needs some getting used to (something I never thought I'd say).

Can't wait for next Tuesday! Myld's appearance will be awesome.

Badass girl with guns huh? ~Sign me up

HER NAME IS KOKO SHE IS LOCO I SAID OH NO. Made my day.

Anyways, loved the first episode and that eargasmic OST and the action. Great to see the series derive from the typical romance genre and more into girls with guns style.

Well, I'll be watching this for sure :>

Seems like someone notice that Sonya(from Kill me baby)'s VA is suitable for this sort of Anime.

It was an okay episode. The action is all animation quality but didn't have "wow factor" in it.

May be I will follow this anime. Never thought Shizuka-hime and Sayaka-san will be in these types of roles. So, being their fan, it's a brand new experience. :)

I never really got into the manga, but the first episode really caught my interest. Liked the art and characters, looks like this'll be one of my favorites this season.

Somehow, the voice doesn't fit for Koko... Though I will be used to it soon enough.

Now that was interesting!
Reminds me of Lupin the III. Been a long time since I had this action anime.

I am glad to pick it up, I wasn't really planning to watch this, now I am seriously into it.
Cant wait for more!

I like Koko but i dont think that voice suits her IMO. Wish we had a lot more action seinens.

So far this show got my interest.

Koko reminds me of somebody from another anime i just cant think of it right now.

Having checked the staff, I can say the director caught my attention in making this series perhaps amazing with 4 series:
http://myanimelist.net/anime/2476/School_Days
http://myanimelist.net/anime/10213/Maji_de_Watashi_ni_Koi_Shinasai!
http://myanimelist.net/anime/9587/Onii-chan_no_Koto_nanka_Zenzen_Suki_Janain_Dakara_ne!!
http://myanimelist.net/anime/6594/Katanagatari
that being said I am fully confident he will make things fucked up, ecchi when things are to be and can do great stuff from his experiences on Maji and Katanagatari.

Character design:
http://myanimelist.net/people/15229/Nakamura_Kazuhisa
has very strong points from series such as:
http://myanimelist.net/anime/6594/Katanagatari
http://myanimelist.net/anime/3594/Tears_to_Tiara
http://myanimelist.net/anime/9253/Steins;Gate
so this is all very nice to point out. As serious shit intermingles with serious art. I wish there was some staff from Black Lagoon I did not see it but I am informed enough to feel some vibes from that series in this series.

For now I will leave it at as that with a delicious fan service tone from:
http://myanimelist.net/anime/5682/Phantom:_Requiem_for_the_Phantom
as it makes me feel there are some tones of depth that Phantom had.

Good way to start the series,Koko is awesome i love her personality a lot and she is loco...O NO!!

The OP is awesome and the ending also good,the OST this episode was outstanding and the animation is good.

Johan is badass when he start shooting from nowere was epic and he has a good side by it looks like that smile and chuckle to the bunny was kinda cute also he sucks at cooking....great!!

The team has pretty much everything,crazy killers,a lesbian,a old man,a glasses guy and all of them been bunch of badasses what better team you can ask for!

The story seems will get better and there be guns guns and guns,cant wait for more!

Also "HER NAME IS KOKO, SHE IS LOCO, I SAID "OH NO!" THE BEST OF THE EPISODE SOOOO HILARIOUS!!

My second most anticipated show of the season! Nice first ep, followed the manga well and did a good job with Koko.

Yeah it kinda just throws you into the action like in the manga. The pacing should get better next ep.

Great production value, but nothing really amazed me. However, that's what I thought at the beginning of Whitefox's Steins;Gate adaptation, and that certainly delivered later on.

Same thing happened with Amnesia. I'm sure the pacing will get better as the show goes on.

That was one hell of an episode, from the dead-eyed child soldier all the way up to the shotacon leader. I suspect the body count will exceed Mirai Nikki by the time they are done. And I've added another must watch to my list....

strong black lagoon vibes.

this has potential to be a good mindless action series, i'm interested to see how things will go in the next episode. the only thing that bothers me is the character designs, koko's features are really masculine and jonah's "red eyes" are really outdated and cheesy, and every other extra character looks typical.

Dat baller OST.

I wasn't expecting much coming in but it seems like a mix of Requiem for the Phantom and Black Lagoon. Might be one of the better shows this season.

Such a fast-paced ep
About 2 chapters of the manga cramped into 1 solid episode
4/5

Jonah & Koko ftw
Jonah's red eyes and white hair remind me of the ishvalan hahaha
The preview for the next ep made me go loco
