THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
----------------------------------------
Wrong airing date, lol.

The first episode was alright though a bit slow. The female character designs are pretty good, background art is really nice, and the animation quality was good. Looks promising! I'm definitely checking out the next episode =D

Not as bad as I thought it would be. Too many girls in this though. You know something bad is gonna happen when there are 3 girls and only 2 guys XD One of the girls is like, gonna die or get dumped or something. That is, if the hero actually manages to pick any of them.

Eh, I wasn't that impressed, I think there will be much bawwing at some point. I'll keep watching as I watch everything but I won't be expecting too much out from this.

It was okay. Its interesting. A light hearted series, but I think that there are plenty of more shows out there like ef~ and Clannad. Its just average for now.

It was pretty good... though I have to disagree with the Clannad review. It's better comparsoned to sola than Clannad, since they're both made by the same creator, and it doesn't have much of a harem attribute.

Can't really judge a romance by its first few episodes, I wasn't too disappointed. I agree with totoum though, Noe will pretty much make the show the most interesting for me. The typical mystery shy girl that seems to be the main female lead is a bit boring until she opens up.





Did you know there's a Phantasy Star Club?

I sorta like the main character, even the side kick, which is a first for me with a harem type anime, besides SZS. But I wish I could enjoy more of the show. It's just full of cliches everywhere; lens flare, plinky piano music, tsundere chicks, moe chicks, retarded chicks, fake watercoloring, walking in on bath, any and every anime cliche that's applicable is applied.

The storytelling overall is pretty nice, but there's just so many cliches that are getting in way of a good story.

I also don't like any of the girls and the main character's interaction with that retarded chick are really forced.

Pretty good animation and the bgm/sound flows well, not bad for a first episode. The pacing seems quite slow, hoping for it to pick up soon. The harem seems to have been assembled already, and a pretty bunch to pick from as well. The male lead seems more capable than other typical harem leads. Overall a decent episode, but I'm rating it a "6" for now until the show picks up, this type of anime isn't my cup of tea...

I seems pretty good, but you can never tell from the first episode. It starts off kinda slow, but most sereis start off slow. Unless its a short series that's six episodes or less.
It does seem a lil cliche though. I do wonder if/how this series will make itself stand out.

The first episode was enjoyable. The animation was nice and the character designs are well done. Although, other than Noe, none of the characters really hit me.

I enjoyed the main character and his interactions with Noe. Being a jerk to a cute girl seems like the schoolyard thing to do so he felt more real to me. I thought it was funny when he made the chicken box and the second time he tried to catch her, he said, "Bring it" and failed miserably again. I loved it when he pumped himself up for another go instantly.

I really like Aiko but it seem like Miyokichi and Aiko are bf/gf during the store scene. I hope they are not, I want Aiko to be single.

Great first ep. While it is a bit slow and won't draw people in if they don't want to watch the series, it gives a good intro to characters and a few backgrounds. I like the fact that there isn't a romantic link present yet between all of the girls, seems a bit refreshing. Definitely gonna keep watching.

Me too, I thought he'd put the tissues to.. some other use but he didn't, phew.
Haha, me as well... and then what is there but a chicken on his bed! Totally didn't see that coming.

Everyone's upset with cliches... but they call them cliches for a reason ;) If done right, they hit home 9 times out of 10. I don't think this show can be judged just yet.

Smooth, and I like the colors and the artistic lead male. I also like that the guys can make male jokes with each other without it being dirty. I had a question with the subs though (Moetaku) ... would "boy" be the best translation for bocchan? I thought it was more for a master's son. (Just curious, if anyone cares to shed light :)

Loved the animation, and it has lots of potential. I am initially disappointed that the true tears tv adaption is an adaption that has absolutely nothing to do with the game, but oh well...

This is alright too.

Interesting first episode. I'll continue watching this anime, I like how we have an artistic male lead. And how it can be quite funny too xD

No, Nao is something else. There isn't a word for it! She's a bit tsundere, childish, tomboyish, a bit dumb perhaps but also she's just plain weird (says she's into aliens, climbs trees). She reminds me of Suzumiya Haruhi.

moe = instant win, therefore we can conclude that Noe = instant win!

I liked the "Kyaa, ecchi" part, that he had to say it himself :') also, turning the tissue-box into a cicken was unexpected.

Episode 1 was awesome. What bothered me the most though is the panty shot between 17:24 - 17:26. XD (if anyone noticed..)

I liked this first episode. It picked up after Noe came in though. She will be my anchor for the show.

On a side note, I thought "mom" was "sister" at first. She must have had the guy young. lol Since that is mom I can see why she might not like Hitomi being there especially around her son.

If we got 80% or higher let me know! :)

Are you implying some sort of incest relation? that would sure give a nice and unexpected twist :P

Yeah, funny how it changes to an angel at the end.

See how this anime goes then, doesn't seem too bad.

I like tree girl.
