wow what an interesting first episode to a series. Totally mindblowing in the end and quite dark. Ive read a few reviews of this of people saying how the first episodes of the series were great but the latter werent as good and ending pretty much downgraded their ratings. For me i just hope its not too bad of a last impression in the end.

Just finished watching it and I'm quite impressed! It's very cool in terms of sound, video and cinematic techniques.

That was an amzing first episode and so not what I was expecting. I thought the letter would be the usual please look after my daughter crap but holy sh*t I was not expecting the my daughter killed me so turn her in thing. And at the end my jaw hit the floor when she killed him. I'm so glad I started watching this I hope the next 11 episodes are this good.

I didn't expect that. It still doesn't mean that he isn't a main character. On to the next episode.

That was pretty nice, though I laughed when I heared the guy was called 'Shouta'. xD

Oh ho! So it wasn't just me! >D XDDD

Wow, this show pulls a nice boat on the first episode? Pretty awesome.

I LOL'd hard.

And regarding the episode, I'm not really like, "OMG WHAT A TWIST AWESOME" at this, though I like the idea and I kind of expected her to go nuts and for him to get stabbed at that moment. However I was not expecting her to be the one who killed her father - her character seemed so untarnished with me having no suspicion for her at all, so I guess that's the one good thing. And also that I was going, "No. They're really not gonna end it right there, are they? No... They are... They did. Well, shit."

I like Kanaka. Talking staffs > talking plushie-like mascots.

O_o Woah! Poor guy got stabbed because he was blinded by his love of the girl, I won't get to see his "Nice Rocket " fly anymore? LOL Looks very interesting for a first episode.

Very good, I love the idea. Plan to marathon this today~

Really surprised me when I first watched this, one of the best series I've watched last year.

Started off looking pretty weak and not very interesting. Then the ending woke me up.

Well, alright, let's see where this show goes.

Just about shat some bricks in that episode. Never expected the girl to be a psycho killer. Is the guy gone for good now, or what? Very promising series so far.

What a plot twist with asuna. She seems like shouldn't hurt a fly. Look r deceiving.

I believe Ayase was being abuse by her father, that's why she killed him and since Shouta found out she killed him too =/
Very cool for a start.

That was a great start, Loved it. I kinda guessed that Ayase killed her father for abusing her i assume, but i never thought she would kill Shouta. damn.

I like this.

I assume the knife scene was when they were packing boxes? When I first saw that, I had thought she would need to be put on suicide watch rather then suspect her of murder O_o

Yeah same, I thought she was planning on cutting herself...but nope.

Seriously, that ending really made my jaw drop, like holy shit. Haven't been surprised in such a long time. Whatever Fumika "saw," it did make it seem like Ayase might've been abused or something, but I didn't expect her to kill Shouta when they came out. When Shouta stood up and talked to Fumika though, I definitely saw it coming then, but it was still shocking because that's just not what I expected when I went into this anime.

Aside from that twist, when the episode began, I couldn't help but thinking it was nice and relaxing. Loving the lighting, high contrast, and pale color palette, the combination usually gives off the mundane atmosphere. Probably why that ending hit me so hard. I did also see that the rating was 17+, but didn't think much about it...but yeah, cinematography is great.

Whoa! I never expected that kind of plot twist from the very first episode. The Episode was really Good and the background music during the episode was just Great. It did a pretty good job building up the atmosphere.

This anime has a pretty interesting and unique concept. The first episode was very intriguing.

I wonder why Ayase was doing this things.
