Overall it's an interesting start. though i don't understand how they're going to get to white haired psycho witch in one cour. She's featured prominently as an antagonist in the OP. They may end up skipping a whole lot of material which would be a shame. Nanami and Mizuka are integral story arcs in the Manga.

I agree and hope they don't do that. I was really looking forward to this adaptation, having enjoyed very much the manga. Don't want them to rush things up. Anyway, the first episode was good, glad to hear Himeragi again

For some reason I felt as in this episode could've been executed better, but I just don't know how they could've. Either way a nice episode. Crash course of introductions are hard.

Is it me or do some of the animations seem weird.

I also don't like how they introduced Murakami, his personality seems like of confusing.

Things will get better as things go on (I hope).

I didn't hear Kuroha say anything about there being rain, did Murakami assume that there was going to be rain or what?

Oh god I can't wait for the OST!

I believe that unless you know for sure that you don't like a concept, you should keep exploring it. Whether it be characteristics of people or a genre of some sort, you never know if you don't like it until you've seen quality work corresponding to that genre. Keep exploring until you've found something you enjoy, or something of quality. Then you know what's bad, what's good, and what isn't for you.

Haha I think don't think you should quote me with that post.

I do agree with you though. I hope this won't end up like EL though, even if other people might want it to.
lol it wasn't toward you of course, I just quoted yours since it was a nice reference to further call out the nitpicking. And yeah but unfortunately I have a feeling it'll end up worse judging by what the OP shows, but that doesn't mean this episode was nearly as terrible as to incur that amount of 'heavy' critique lol

Wow great start.

I feel she is the same person. I wonder if the surgery/experiment erased her memory? It could also got rid of her mole too.

So this one took me by surprise, I thought it was gonna be a lot less dark and with far less action, but the OP sequence and this episode have very much surprised me. I don't really know what to expect now...

Haha. I had a problem finishing the rest of the episode because I had to replay the OP over and over again due to its sheer awesomeness. That aside though, this anime is really interesting so far and I didn't expect the death forecasting thing so I'm quite excited to what else this show has to offer in future episodes. :)

This anime is probably one of the tops this season for me. I can't fully explain why, but it has a sense of mystery, comedy, and a romance vibe, not to mention action-esque.

Definitely caught me by surprise.

I seriously am in love with that opening..

This episode looked like something right out of a Final Destination movie. I'm sure things are about to get way more intense though.

I honestly can't even come up with a guess as to who Kuroha really is. This anime seems like it's gonna be one hell of a ride! Can't wait for next week!

The OP is something. Different = good.

Probably is going to have an anime ending, just as Elfen Lied, because the manga isn't finished (55ch translated/95ch raw).

The animation was well done. Can't wait to see if they're going to ruin it like Elfen Lied or at least make a decent end.

Best girl, aka Kazumi, has yet to arrive. The show gets better after her introduction. Or at least, it should if it follows the manga properly.

Another promising anime to watch this season. It has a hint of everything - mystery, action, school life, comedy, romance, magic, drama!!
I have to rewatch the OP coz everyone is talking about it and I fast-forwarded it.

This anime is the most interesting of the Spring Season (of those I have seen).

I have a lot of theories and looking forward to next season.

So this is going to go anime original cause

Wonder why they skipped the opening scene of the manga too.

Either way like the art and looking forward to see everything else being animated.Guess,they'll go anime original ending just like Elfen Lied.


The white-haired girl shows up in the manga, it's just that the scanalting group has yet to show us that.

If they're planning on making an anime ending, they did a good job skipping the opening scene of the manga, because that scene is connected to the current events in the manga (raw). Having only 13 episodes, won't cover much of the manga.

Really enjoyed this, love the OP. I swear, the beginning of the OP has some magic in it.
Kuroha is pretty cute too and I like the main mc ryouta too so far.
Ending song is decent.
Very promising and one of my favourite 5 so far this season.

When I read the summary, it seemed kinda meh, but the show blew me away. The story has a little mysterious X-Files vibe, which I really liked. The OP was like a preview of all the awesome stuff that we're going to see.

I really like this show so far. I always thought Okamoto Lynn's writing is not the most professional one, can even be mistaken as amateurish but he's definitely has some unique capturing style that makes me get attached to his series and his characters. And there is finally a new show by him, after many long years Elfen Lied first aired.
I got a special place reserved for Elfen Lied, and this show has some stuff that were present in Elfen Lied, but overall, it's different, so it's no rehash of old stuff.

I read the first 10 chapters of the manga when it was just being first published in 2012, and I'm very pleased so far on how it was adapted.
I was waiting for this adaptation for a long time now, and now that it's here, I will definitely have something to look forward to in the next 12 weeks. I kinda wished it will be at least 24 episodes, but even if the anime will get an anime original ending which will probably will happen considering the direction the series takes, I won't condemn this choice as I'm used to.

I just hope the ending won't be like Elfen Lied, but more conclusive. I really look forward to watching the next episodes.

+OP is stupidly good. gives me shivers every time i watch it. (also reminds me of higurashi?)
-OP being full of girls worries me its a harem.
+story provides a good sense of mystery.
-MC is pretty fucking bland.
+good blend of comedy and darker themes.
-avalanche scene looked pretty lackluster.

OP is nice!
The humour was great as well, a little more than I thought there would be.
What if they weren't moles?????
Though I do have three moles in a shape of a triangle myself....

Theory: Kuroneko didn't die but was helped by the aliens that she was about to show him... and then they raised her as well.
Moles weren't moles but an alien thingy and that is why they are gone.
Kuroha Neko is Kuroneko

Have been anticipating this since they first announced the anime.

Boy this did not disappoint. The OP was absolutely stunning! I find myself going on and on about the music they use in the first episode of this season's anime, but thus far this OP really took the cake!

I like how they adapted this from the manga, but given the material they have available I'm quite disappointed that they aren't moving for a 2 cour. I really hope they stay true to the story, and won't do a goddamned Claymore (butchered it with some BS ending). First episode and already I'm hoping for a second (and maybe a third) season, would it be too much to ask?

This spring lineup is a feast for my manga-loving eyes. <3

Bring on next week already!

like a lot of you manga readers have already pointed out, i don't get how they can get into the white witch arc in just a short one cour, hopefully nothing important gets cuts off.

also, glorious OP. Been awhile since i last seen an OP like this, the art is great too, let's see how it turns out :)

I love it! The OP is wicked good! Sets the mood perfectly.

From reading the manga, this story has a nearly perfect balance of cute, funny, tense action, mystery, and flat-out creepiness. It is really well written and I can't wait to see how the anime adaptation turns out.

This seems to have potential not to sure about the main character tho but the girl is interesting.
I wonder what was wrong with that guy he is supposed to be smart but could not figure out that walking on a mountain road during rain is dangerous?
I mean if a city dweller like me who lives in a country without mountains knows that rain can cause mudslides and rocks to fall down on mountain roads then certainly people who live in or near mountains know this as well.
You don't need to be a genius for that still the theories this guy was making up where ridiculous.

Well i was really hyped for the series since i really enjoyed the manga, but then i saw the opening,
oh, the humanity! why does it need to have an anime original ending!? am so sad- so mad.

Well he was obviously aware of that, he was just testing if her prediction was correct, did you watch the raws? it was well explained.

An introduction quite simple and quiet. Having read the first chapter of the manga, Lynn had represented the begining of the story with very dark tones, while in the first episode of the anime, the director focused more on making it rather comical, in my opinion. I love the OP-theme, though.

I'm not quite sure what happened with the supposed "1st death"

did the main female lead intervened? (only saw her getting out of the pool as she knew what would happen)

or was the forecast wrong?

But she said something about not wanting to have to use her powers after splitting the boulder. I though she said the pump just gave out.
