THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
----------------------------------------
Pretty average introductory episode.

I liked the part where the filter came on and the cute girl gave a ominous grin. You know, every second scene.

They'll get to the plot soon. A little fan service spotted but whatever. The manga is moving a little slow right now as well so I expect the show will show its true colors soon.

Laughed lots, it'll be too edgy for me to take it seriously. I'm in for more comedy disguised as something deep.

Correct. It airs on MBS in Tokyo on Thursday at 2:19 am.

What you just saw was only 20:30 long and there was no OP or ED. On Thursday
they are going to broadcast the entire episode with the OP and ED included. They
announced this just two hours ago on their official Twitter account. There was no
explanation.

Is it possible that they still haven't finished preparing the OP and the ED?

A little too fast-paced for the 1st episode, but I liked it a lot. :)

I saw this coming out yesterday and thought it was a troll, lel

Well the first episode or episode "0" if you prefer had a lot of Drama involved in it, and what`s up with this girl Haruna? Why is she so important?

Tokaku`s name has a pretty cool significance, "Impossible"... just adds to its overly badass character

Well, I`ll resume my quest to catch all Pokemons :3

If I don't get to see this (because of lack of subs), I'd be really disappointed. :/

First impression: veeery good
Voice Actors: perfect for each character (Fumiko Uchimura!)
OP: Couldn't be better
ED: OMG
OP+ED: both very original, perfect for this anime

I pretty much liked everything in this first ep, especially that scene in room nr. 2... And of course the many cute scenes with Azuma+Haru.

Agreed. This is much better than what I expected from watching the previews.
I am getting into the characters and the story. Who would have thought that
kawai cellphone straps and Pocky sticks could be so terrifying? In terms of the
Yuri aspect, I find the relationships much more plausible than in Sakura Trick.
I also think that they are doing a very good job of adapting the manga into an
anime. If I was asked to describe this to a friend, I would say, "It is just like
Azumanga Daioh except that all of the girls are trying to kill each other."

How strange it sounds, I agree with this comparison.

That opening theme and animation was incredible, I enjoyed it *-* same with the ending, it's different with amazing art.

I agree, its disapointing that this hasnt got a sub group athough its been adapted for a while now. But all we can really do is be patient.

I ended up re-watched with spanished sub (Even though I can't speak spanish I took enough classes to be able to read it properly. )

Honestly... why, just why does this have to exist?

Out of my personal opinion I really dislike these all-female cast animes, even more if they are set in the action genre. Not because I dislike female characters (that would be pretty stupid) but because I much prefer a balanced cast, which these days seems to be impossible to accomplish for animes, either you have a all-female cast of school girls or the typical shounen cast.

Also it's just freakin' annoying to me when these school girls take on groups of special forces or elite mercenaries (this is just a guess, I don't know everything that series after all) without breaking a sweet, because they are just ultra assassins for no apparent reason and magically don't get hit by bullets. (And don't get me wrong here, too, I hate this just as much with male characters... that one guy in Valvrave taking on half of an army and outsmarting, outhacking and outfighting them at the same time without any sort of preperation time was soo annoying to me I wanted to drop the entire series right there but keept watching because of the mech fights).

The last time I saw actually good female action characters was in Jormungand (there was some other anime too but I just can't remember right now).

Take this as a little rant please, I don't intend to insult anyone who likes this anime, this all only my opinion.

(I just saw Black & Soul... it's just like that, too. Aside from the typical bad guys there seems to be only one male character who is worthy enough to even be in the opening and he ist just also some guy aswell, which is really strange to me since I can't wait for the release of the actual MMO in the EU and there are alot of male characters in there, too. And they didn't even include the best female character into the anime (Po Hwa Ran) but instead we have this typical, top assassin and ultra serious main character girl - It's just so intense and engaging to watch a main character that barely even says anything or shows emotions in the first episode.)

I am glad that somebody here already mentioned that it has been subbed in
Spanish and is now posted on some streaming websites. To find it, you just
need to Google this phrase:

Did this officially air yet or was it a preview of some sort?
I know MAL likes to list per-screenigs and mark things airing before they even actually start.

Interesting though, you'd think this would be flooded with subs by now.

Smelling...symbolism?
I notice there is a Yuri tag, but taking into account of what I've heard so far about the manga considering "Yuri" development, I don't think it's going to bother me that much or ruin my overall enjoyment of the show; since in my perspective as of now, it looks like it has potential to be up there in my favs of Spring season.

2. Characters are interesting, especially banba shinya, the one who bathes with many toy ducks

3. Already like tokaku x haru. This is gonna be some ride

It was a pretty good start for a first episode. An anime about assassins and also a yuri series too, that's sound good.
