THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.

this was something.
Loved it, it was just.... EPIC!!
The OP by Yuki is crazy, and the ED is great too
The visuals were good, but the music was just on a whole different level!!!
Loved how this ended, bit interested into santaro's life (seems like a orphan...)
Can't wait for the next episode!!! xD

Thanks for helping.

It did kind of develop really quick, but I loved it. About the only good first epsiode of this season, along with Sankarea.
There is still hope that there will be more than one decent anime this season!

I am loving the music, definitely going to be one of my favorites since I just started BECK and was looking for a music based anime as well

Rushed? Nope, this pacing was just fit imho. It being slower might've made it drag too much and be boring, but this is just right.
I like music focuses on jazz, with those new Lupin III bgms and some j-jazz i found lately, i might get into this genre now even more.

Reminds me of Nodame, partially due to the music and the main character.

This is probably the one I was anticipating the most this season.
I love it already.

Hmm some details were a little bit rushed, but my enjoyment level will be high regardless.

I had no idea what I was going to watch, turned out it was great. Jazz is awesome and they did an amazing job to get the drum playing right.

OP and ED are beyond beautiful.

Overall, I'm confident that this series will be one of the best anime of the season if not the year if the first episode is any indication.
So, this will revolve around Jazz? You certainly don't see that every day. Anyway, the animation at the drum scene was incredible as the movements synchronized with the music perfectly.

Yuki OP is awesome, as expected.

This was - this was brilliant. By far the best episode of the spring anime that I've seen so far. As soon as the episode ended I googled Art Blakey and The Jazz Messengers. Downloading 'Moanin' right now.

Whenever you want to introduce a character as a classical pianist, there's a 50% chance that the first song they'll play is Moonlight Sonata and a 50% chance that it'll be Clair de Lune...

Sentaro definitely has chops. And that sequence was animated perfectly.

The weirdest thing for me is that Sentarou gives combination of Jotaro Josuke and Josuke Higashikata feeling... it's like he was taken from JoJo.

Animes about music are quite rare and its about jazz. This is a must watch for me.

So old fashioned school life in Japan. This reminds me of "Harris no kaze" which was aired about 46 years ago. It is so natural because this story started in 1966.
The delinquent like Sentaro is seldom found in recent Japan.

If you were/are in the US Navy, you know Yokosuka and Sasebo. Both cities have the US Navy bases. So two Navy soldiers were in the record shop. And the military service radio is aired there. The inhabitant could/can listen to American music faster in comparison with the other areas in Japan.

Ricchan's VA is Yuuka Nanri. She also is a singer. She sung the theme song of Sacred Seven. I hope she would sing in this Anime some day.

I am looking forward to the next episode. Sentaro's drum playing was great, especially his grip; regular grip.

Nice one, indeed a good show
well writen characters with good acting

A perfect opportunity to make a jazzy opening song, but no. Kinda odd choice if you ask me.

The episode was great. I'm expecting a lot from this show.

Theme song. I laaiiike.

The music is beautiful.
The animation was done well.
Good number of great scenes. Loving every minutes of it.
I've already been exposed to the manga so I know what happened. I can't wait for the next episodes.

It might have felt a little rushed but the episode was pretty much exactly the same as the first three chapters of the manga, just in somewhat different order. I'm happy about how it turned out, I liked the episode.

Amazing first episode.
I am in love with the art direction and the character dynamic.
The atmosphere is great and the music is superb.

Probably going to be anime of the season.

Aside from the slight Ho Yay vibe making me a little uncomfortable, it was a good beginning. The story and pace are fine. The characters are quite likeable, especially Sentarou who is hilarious. I also enjoy jazz so that's a nice plus for me. I'm looking forward to seeing how this evolves.

EDIT: I wish they had used something at least a little jazzy for the OP/ED...

one of the best parts about the first ep (besides the OP and ED, and the rest of the music) was the scene where sentarou fights the dudes on the rooftop. i hope he gets into lots of fights, because the choreography was perfect.

This is going to be sweeeet~ I've been looking forward to this so much! And I Loved the first episode o0o Sentarou's drum solo gave me ever more goose dumps in the actual episode then it did in the trailer *v* And piano is wonderful no matter what genre it's played in~

Can't wait for the next episode!

There's not enough good music centered anime out there, so I'm pretty excited about this one. look good so far.
Like the backgrounds and chara designs, characters seem ok too. I will totally enjoy if Nishima starts to chill out more, but I can see it happening in near future.
overall I have high hopes for this one.

OHH GOSH.... LOVE THIS SHOW ALREADY!!

I feel the quality of the art and hands are similar to Kimi to Todoke..

Am I crazy?

I feel both shows and artists really pay extra detail to the hands..

GOSH, I love the relaxed feeling...

IDK WHO TO SHIP!! >W< <3 <3 <3 <3

I love the comfortableness, closeness and trust between Sentarou and Ritsuko, but Kaoru and Ritsuko is cute too xD
And I know the yaoi fangirls were get up on all that...
