uhhh.. Looking at the comments about the show, I don't think this is going to beat the first season... lol People were just so attached to the first, and I'm one of them.

I don't know, but I think the first season was adapted and followed the manga, while this one is a complete alternate retelling. Guess no one beats the original. lol But still, you'll never know. =P

I didn't like the fanservice at all, but the rest of the episode was no so bad. I think I'll watch it even if I'm not expecting anything special :D

Also, I didn't like both the opening and the ending :(

I'm afraid I was very disappointed in the first episode.

The art, the characters, the comedy, it all seemed... off compared to the first season. The first season was charminly funny, this episode was just... flat. Unless things change for the better quickly, I'm not sure if I will even continue watching this season. Sigh.

I miss season 1. The comic timing isn't as good this time around and the new art kinda bothers me. Not bad overall, but not EPIC LULZ. Of course, I will still keep watching it and hope it picks up a bit. The first season wasn't so hot the first few eps either.

Yeah, it took 3 episodes for me to really get into Season 1. And this first episode of Okawari was really iffy all over the place with little inconsistencies that bothered me. I really don't have the time to be watching a lot of Winter Season Anime (this is my 3rd one, Shigofumi will be the 4th and final one once I find time to start it) so if this doesn't improve by Episode 4, I'll most likely be dropping this.

I liked it a lot! I doubt it will be better than the first series. I liked the character designs better before but it's interesting seeing them like this, too...

I can see how so many people dislike it but the first episode was just as good/bad as the first episode of the first season. If this series was aired first (Ignoring how the characters are introduced) then a lot more people would have liked it. The animation quality may be lower but there are many worse anime out there.

Overall I enjoyed this episode quite a lot. 7/10 using the Zarin scale, 9/10 if you don't understand the Zarin scale.

While the humor is still somewhat the same, I didn’t like all the fanservice. Its not what this series is about. I don’t know I could be just a stickler and need to adapt abit.

That was pretty good but it lost allot of what the series originally had.

I'll keep an open mind though.

Wow, I am an idiot. I clicked on Okawari 01 instead of just Minami-ke 01. Ah well, doesn't seem spoilerish at all. Going to go watch Minami-ke. ^_^

EDIT: Okay, that's gross. I think I'll put ~Okawari~ on hold for a couple of months.

There was much more fanservice than the first series and the laughs were not as good. I still have to watch more to to make a determination.

It seems to be starting out just as good as the first season, though I am not sure why they deemed it necessary to tweak the art and color scheme of the series. But oh well, so long as it remains as entertaining.

Noo, Why did they change the colour of Chiaki's (And everyone else's, but Chiaki@@) hair?

It was perfect, and now she doesn't have the same lazy look on hair face, the eyes don't drag down as they would have in first Season.

I don't mind fan service, it doesn't really ruin the mood or anything, just bits of the skin lol.
I did notice how the comedy was a bit boring though, but so were some of Season 1's episode jokes.

Hopefully it gets better, I loved the Hot Springs scene with Mako-Chan lol.

I actually thought it was more funny than the last few episodes of the first season. Makoto and Touma trying to figure out how to get into the sauna and Fugioka walking in on a very naked Kana were priceless. I also think the animation is improved, even though it was wierd at first. Otherwise, it still feels very much like Minami-ke. If the reason why this shows score is so low is because of the different animation, then i'm calling bullshit.

Well, I'm glad that the story contines and I kind of like this season's animation, much better than the last one.

I though that Fujioka would be happy to see Kana. But I guess not.

Great first episode for me. The ending was just hilarious. Fujioka opens the door and Kana is standing there, then he just casually closes it. Lol, so great.

Awesome start, altough I was surprised it starts with onsen. However it was good, and sometimes scared the hell out of me (old-man-glasses suddenly appear). And also funny as hell.

What happened to my Minami-ke!? I did not like the OP or ED. My biggest complaint is the animation; the colors are all wrong! The fanservice was also unexpected. I didn't mind it too much, but I just hope they don't use it too often like they did in this episode.

I will continue with the series only because the most important thing was still there, Minami-ke's humor. The confusion at the onsen was funny; however, the rest of the episode lacked in the humor. I'm hoping this may just have been a bad start.

I didn't even know they switched studios until I read the thread. I knew there was something wrong with chiaki's hair. There was something off with all the chracters in general (except for maybe Mako-chan).

They added a kitchen? I thought the kitchen was tiny...

I loved the new OP and ED. Highlight of the episode was when Kana and Fujioka stumbled upon each other in the baths... couldn't stop laughing there! xD

The new art is really weird for me. :/
I liked the simple art style of the first series. Lets just hope the comedy portion picks up in latter episodes.

What the hell happened to Minami-Ke???
It isn't cute anymore - it's just normal.
And I didn't find any comedy in the first ep :(

I enjoyed the first episode but the different animation I didn't think was a cute but it was still an pretty good episode. I have to say the first opening was better than this one, but this episode was pretty funny.

Both the OP and ED were awesome! However it didn't felt as funny as the first one, oh well probably it'll get funnier in the later episodes.

I really enjoyed this actually. After hearing how bad the other seasons were, I purposely waited a few months so that I wouldn't constantly be comparing this and the first season.

It wasn't OMGLOL funny, but I got a few chuckles here and there and it was entertaining to watch. I can't say I ever thought the first season was laugh out loud funny either, so maybe it's just me.

No to just wait until Hosaka shows up. Then it will be a party.

I actually liked the animation of the first Minami-ke series better than this one, it seems like the facial expressions in this one are a lot less detailed.
Anyways this episode wasn't as funny as I was hoping but the scene where Fujioka gets mixed up with the baths was pretty funny.

This was exactly what I was gonna say. I never noticed the hair style that Chiaki had in the first series, but I don't like the one in this series (how it's blonde then purple-ish at the ends)

I like the OP and ED just as well as the old ones, they're both amazing imo. This just looks way cooler, but the other OP fitted in better imo. The new art style is a lot more modern, but the faces just look off now, perhaps it's something that I'll get used to in a while.
I almost never read discussions after I made my post, if you want to reply PM me or post on my profile page.

It was okay. A couple of good jokes here and there. That cross-dressing thing has really caused all kinds of problems for Mako and Touma.

And what's with everyone mentioning "fanservice"? I didn't notice any.

Oh, you mean characters were naked in multiple scenes? Well, if I get to see characters being naked, but without seeing any actual nudity, to me it's not fanservice; it's teasing and it pisses me off big time.

I respect your opinion as long as you respect mine.

Whoa what the hell happend to their Hair colour. It's kinda wierd now.
This Episode wasn't that bad, i mean that confusion caused by Touma and Makoto was funny.
Mako-Chan is cute and funny as usual.

What a depressing new year xD

Mako and Touma, they can be a successful duo manzai if they want xD
So Kana can get embarassed too huh

Poor Uchida
Why you left her alone, Kana? :(
Also, she's way too good.. Everyone must thought "she won't come" and she did

I agree! Don't imitate everything you see!
Bakayarooo~ xD
