I went into this show not having a clue what it was going to be about. So I guess it's a harem?

I enjoyed this episode more than the first one, especially the creativity with the kanji.

Eww, what's up with using real images? I'm still enjoying the art style, though. I might have to watch more from Shaft.

I hope the fanservice doesn't get much worse. >_>

I'm getting to where I can read most of the flashtext. win.

Araragi is a very decent character.

amazing episode. beautiful design, art direction, animation. i loved the idea of the crab god and the relation between weight and feelings, and the light bulb that lit when i realized that explained her lack of emotions. digging the main character a lot (<3333) and i like her too, though i wonder how different she will be from now on.

Okay, if it keeps getting better like it just did, then I understand why this is such a popular series. That was really good, albeit still kinda confusing.

Well this was rather interesting, a nice take on how they used real life photo's for flash backs and what not!

Nice episode ending was great but what's up did he got the weight from her now?

Finally getting around to watching this show, and now I don't know why I didn't watch it sooner!!
The first arc is spectacular! Hitagi just became one of my new favorite characters.

Will definitely be pre-ordering the LE set from Aniplex USA!

Urahara Out!!

Just now getting around to watching this. Good stuff, not anything that I was expecting. The art style is fresh, with the random "black scene" "red scene" flashes? It makes me pause a lot to read it though, but I'm ok with it.
One question- What is that piano piece playing at the 4:20-5:00 mark? I swear I've heard it before somewhere else, but I can't place it.

That's it, and then the top comment on it pointed me to the jazz song. I knew I had heard it. Thanks!

I couldn't get what is so amazing about this to write 11 pages of "omg how cool" replies. Interesting, I hope i won't be disappointed by this series. I still couldn't get why do they particularly suggesting to see this show with every single sign translated, cause I couldn't see any important thing.

Good episode.
Hitgai tap her own ass was so damn good. that is awesome. Thought it will be the glasses girl.
Hitagi's past was tragic and weird. due to the quick images of asian people .0.oI knew that is some trap to her.
Next episode seems to be a delvopement to Hitagai and that one boy.
5/5

I still don't find this anything more than "interesting".
The close-up shots are still annoying and creepy as hell.

adding real life scenes into anime is one of the worst things you can do imo. and the weird animation/art style of the flashbacks wasn't my thing either. and there were two scenes where i found the music so freaking annoying - the first scene right after the intro and the scene where they go to the altar.
so far i have to agree with that:

the only scene i really liked was the beginning when senjougahara was walking around (nearly) naked and when she was teasing araragi.

I'm going to have to agree. They haven't told us anything about how these characters met or why they are helping each other. I'm sure they'll get to it but right now I'm obviously confused.

Senjougahara's past is pretty intense. Next episode looks like normal slice of life stuff.

Better than the first in terms of focus but the text being tossed around faster than you can read is getting annoying and those real images totally took me out of it. I'll give it another episode or two but since it's a short series I rather not drop it.

Strangely, Crunchyroll only has 12 episodes compared to the 15 episodes listed here. Anyone know what that's about?

Yes. Finally, her bitch cells are eradicated (for now.) The fanservice wasn't annoying as I thought it would be, since it's beautifully done. Goddamn, this animation style is pretty good. I'm taking quite a liking to it. Excellent... everything, really. Animation, plot, character design, music.. you name it. 5/5 episode.

*starts the ep*
> Dat ass slap.

The art is amazing, as expected. Feels as if Senjougahara's character completely changed near the end. I wasn't expecting that after seeing her attitude towards Araragi up until now, but I suppose she must have been very thankful. I wonder if she'll remain like this or return to her usual tsundere self...

I love this art. The story so far has been pretty slow but I wouldn't say it's bad. There's just nothing to be impressed about yet. The characters seem good enough, I can't wait to learn more about them.

This anime is weeeeird :o The art style is really putting me off but otherwise it's interesting enough for me to keep going. However, so far the characters haven't been too interesting in my opinion. Although it seems like that might change in the next episode.

Duuuude, this show is effin' weeeiird.

I like the main guy, though. His sisters look cute too. I wanna see more of that one girl in the corner.

The way some of the scenes and dialogue go by really fast is kinda cool. I bet it'd be better if I could understand Japanese.

The live action scene gave me chills even though I hated it the first time around. The slowed down OP is beautiful. And personally, I'd take a clothed Gahara in a ponytail over just-showered Gahara any day.

Hmmm, seems there are two camps: the 'omg this is awesome' and the 'this is interesting but it hasn't grabbed me and not sure if it will'. At the moment I fall in the later.
Such junk...

The beginning was sexy.

So the reason she was so cold was because the crab stole her emotion too...

It was a good episode, weird again. I love Shaft style.

I liked the backstory and it was presented in an interesting way.
Though the whole crab steeling her emotions was kinda weird and I can't quite figure out the settings here, I mean vampires? Gods? some weird magic powers? I will assume the settings in this anime are not supposed to be taken seriously since it seems like a bunch of random stuff.

I liked how hmmm what's his name, the guy who was helping the girl and the one that use to be a vampire. Ah I don't remember his name but he's the one with the piercing in his ear, yeah anyways, I like how he just grabs the crab gods leg and pins him to the ground. Talk about a bad ass ha.

After just watching the first 2 episodes this show has all the makings to top my list. I love the animation, love the Shinto-ishness and fantasy of the gods/spirits/vampires/etc, love the direction the story is heading, love the characters (they have a lot of depth even though I've only been minimally exposed). I'm really looking forward to seeing a relationship develop between Araragi and Senjougahara.
