THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
----------------------------------------
Oh my, they're really hot.

Ahh, I'm already seeing the yaoi undertones. xD
This season is just directed towards the fujoshi, wow. Welp, I don't mind, cause the dudes are very attractive. ^-^;


Anyone else think of DBZ with these dudes?

Plot exposition was a little too vague/complicated, left me confused and somewhat uninterested.
That girl commentating the Rhyme match - or at least I think she was a girl - why was her voice a dude's? Lol.

We basically just met all the characters this episode, in one way or another. Hopefully the next episode has a more clear direction.
Hehe, the bunnies at the end are too adorable. :3

The sci-fi setting seems to make this interesting.
With the gangs and the robots, I actually want an information dump episode.
Aoba being known by so many previous gang leaders, so he used to be quite the strong one?
The Usui AI thing with the male commentator voice :O
The Rhyme game and those rabbits!

Aoba is quite a popular guy. Almost every main leads know him.

Koujaku and Mizuki run some sort of gang teams. They looks pretty cool though.

"Rhyme" is apparently a famous game. I don't see the downside of the game yet, as Mizuki implied.
"Spirited Away" on the other hand seems to be the primary issue. A bit mysterious indeed.

Aoba is suddenly dragged into the "Rhyme" arena with another of his fellow, Ren.
Oho. He's already a badass? Or, he played the game before?

Not a bad start. Will follow the show for now.

It wasn't bad.. But I assume people who haven't played the game will have some trouble following the plot.

I liked the first episode. It wasn't bad. And opening and ending was made by Goatbed, the same who made opening for game, it can be heard, but it's good. It gives feel of the game. I hope it won't be ruined

Well, not bad. But it wasn't "OMG OMG OMGGGGG" either. Just ok.

Glad that they keeped the "Bald" scene though. I already feel the gayness.

Nohomojaku, hah.

That's my point always. I don't know why some fans expect yaoi in the first episode when that's comes out in the very end of the game. First it's the common route, and I think this will be

I really liked character desings and anime feels like visual novel, hehe n_n
Opening and ending were relaxing... but somehow my mind says that it will turn out like one of these boring harem animes.

This was kind of disappointing, tbh. I expected more from the first episodes that feature the prologue of the game. I guess I was right to be sceptical about this adaptation.

P.S.: What the hell's with Koujaku not being surrounded by girls?

^^^^^there is a big difference between what can be shown on tv and what can happen in a game.


Anyway,i did play the game(s) so there is most likely nothing that can surprise me. It was nice seeing things i was used seeing in static in motion though. And i am liking so far how they are handling it,i guess.

This episode has made me so excited for the future episodes, It was a lot of information to process with the new world and 'rhyme' but I like the way they just throw you in. (I'm feeling some yaoi hints but lets not get my hopes up) but yh will definitely continue this.
watching anime was only meant to be hobby... I says whilst I neglect my studies and post on forums

Personally I doubt there will be anything big, the genres would have yaoi or shounen ai listed if it was the case.. At the most there'll probably be some undertones but that's that. Something like Togainu no Chi.

I would have loved it if they went with the original game BGMs.. And the opening looked kind of sloppy.

This is based on a game featuring explicit yaoi.

Why do people feel the need to comment on "teh gayness!!!!!"

It's like going into SAO's first episode and saying "Hm, I can already sense the action and video games theme".

Like... no fucking shit.

That aoba scene with him glancing to the side(viewer) was great, and his outfit never gets old to see, if only the yellow socks could be traded for something else, and his laugh is too good.

Rhyme was a good part with how it moved and felt like an actual game in there. How they jumped around, flew and dodged.

OST is also pretty strong with tons of great tracks. Great debut for its anime version of the bl game.

That was okay, though most of the show was introducing characters so i'll check out the next episode next week. I like the setting, but there was a bit too much... talking :/

Everyone is saying how beautiful the animation is but in my opinion it sucks big time. It's no wonder Koujaku is not that popular anymore, seeing how ugly he is. Even though I obviously didn't expect Honyarara's art, I never thought the animation would end up being so bad.

I don't think they should have changed what happens in the prologue. There's no BL there whatsoever, so I see no reason to include different scenes. It was unnecessary. Plus, for people who haven't played the game this episode must be really confusing because everything happens so fast.

In the end this will be a failure like Togainu no Chi.

I really think that this anime would only appeal to fans of the game. If I hadn't already played the VN and really love it, then I don't know what the appeal of this show would be. The opening was so gosh darn campy that I could have mistaken it for a fan made video. The animation near the beginning of the episode, when they panned around the city, was choppy (limited frame rate). However, the Rhyme battle was really great and showed off a lot more Rhyme than we got to see in the VN. I also loved that they chose to include the scene with Koujaku and Aoba as kids. Overall, it's not great, but as a huge fan of the VN I will definitely keep watching just so I can see my favorite boys every week.

I dont understand the assumption that people who didnt play the game would be lost or confused, give people more credit.

I think it was okay. It seems much better than TnC. I still cringe when I remember the first episode..

It shouldn't really abandon the yaoi part since it already started with *what a nice voice I have?*. Like really now.
Other than that I felt it was kinda short, probaby cause of the exposition, but it somehow had to introduce us sooner or later to all of the cast.

I also like that new scene where Koujaku tried to touch his hair but hesitates c;.

I have no words to describe how bad this was. Of course, I was expecting it to be a failure but not to this extent. First of all, the art is disgusting. How come everyone looks like a retard and Ren, whose tongue is out all the time for unknown reasons, takes part in the "first scene". He only good-looking one is Clear, simply because he is still wearing the gas mask. I'll skip on how they unnecessarily add new people (i.e the X-mas guys had 2 additions, one of which yellow.... they are not Christmas guys anymore). But please, why did you change Mink's scene?! I want to strangle those who came up with the idea of Aoba bumping into him. It was bad, guys, really bad.
But what was the worst was the voice acting here. I can't believe it. I just can't. The only people who somehow sounded like themselves were Mizuki, Dark Aoba and Yoshie. And that lame joke Aoba said to his grandmother. Oh, God, why?! Why add this? And yeah, Aoba takes off his jacket to eat supper and then puts it back on to just climb to the second floor? Like, wtf? Rhyme was also poorly made. Usui with the male voice, like, seriously? Wasn't that some kind of announcer, wasn't Usui just a judge? And Noiz.... that wasn't Noiz. Also Aoba flying there like he owns the place and Ren who doesn't even bother protecting him. Yeah, this works perfectly. Just... I'm speechless.
I just wonder whether to laugh at the poor excuse of anime, or to be terrified by what more they can ruin.

It wasn't too bad, in my opinion. I loved how they showed members of Dry Juice telling Mizuki they were leaving (for Rhyme), it gives you a better grip of the situation as they didn't really show people leaving in the game. It may be an unpopular opinion, but after having watched the first episode, I can now say that I don't think the not-twins look too bad, especially when you get a close-up.

All in all, I enjoyed it and I'm super excited for what's next. So glad GOATBED produced the music for the anime as well!

Large amount of rape?! L0Lwut, don't make me laugh. There is only one rape scene in the whole game.
Plus, this won't even touch the case of a BL. I don't know how can anyone have any hopes for seeing any "action"at all. Get real, people.

Still felt quite video gamey at parts just like Danganronpa and such as of late.
Best way to describe that feeling is a sense of emptiness/void as some scenes play out.

GOATBED openings are just NOPE.

The fucking ~twins~ though.
I'll keep watching for Noiz and Clear though because that's where it's at for me.
That last Rhyme bit was not enough.

FYI, this game has very few sex scenes (in comparison to other BL games that are flooded with such). For four out of five of the characters it happened only once throughout the whole route and it was at the very end. So I also think that this anime would just keep the undertones and would exclude all the "spicy" scenes.

It's actually never mentioned whether Usui has male or female, or any voice at all. But it would be more reasonable, since it has a female body to have a voice that matches, isn't it?
(Actually I thought Usui doesn't speak at all while I was playing the game)

There's some yaoi undertones in this show.

I like the OST especially during the "Rhyme" matches.

Wait, so Ren can be a badass online character from a speaking dog? Cool!

Why does Aoba have so much connections with these gang/team leaders and stuff?

Also, that young Aoba who looks like a girl -- XD
Really looks like a girl!

I only played half of the DRAMAtical Murder game, so far I think it's doing really well. I obviously didn't expect it to be exact but I was a little disappointed that they didn't show how much of a /stud/ Koujaku is. It's okay though. I have high hopes for this anime.

If you didn't play the game then obviously you'll find it a bit confusing about Rhyme and Rib but it'll most likely become clearer throughout the anime.

im not gonna expect any yaoi moment for now, dont wanna get my hopes up
im hoping for atleast some borderline shounen ai moments
(or at least something like free!)

pretty good first episode
wasnt excellent, but wasnt horrible
art is decent (cant expect it to be too good)
a bit different then the original story
ren looks smaller...and less fluffly...then i imagined him to be... :(
i was also expecting more fangirls for kojaku too =3=

can't wait for the next episode~

It's not even in the genres. Right now, it looks like there's gonna be zero BL in this show. People should just give things a chance before judging it automatically lol. Hey, even I tried Akuma no Riddle and it turned out to have no yuri.
