THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
----------------------------------------
Idk how I feel about this yet. There's more comedy than I had thought especially with Tenka. And what's with that hair? lol

Botan is a sweetheart although I think she has other motives. Heh, it's more like a setup episode. Hope it gets better soon. There's some action so the show does take itself seriously. The fight was fast though.

Introducing of 3 brothers. KajiKaji's character (2nd) is so serious. The bright one is Yonaga-san's character instead. lol @ the pretend. The oldest is so overprotective in both brothers, so cute.

Looks like KajiKaji's character is the main because he learned that he's not strong as his older brother to get the runaway criminal in captive.

The female teacher looks suspicious, is she going to be the enemy?

ED was nice. I'm liking it so much so far.

Ummm... I don't think you're allowed to post links directing to watch the eps. on the forums.

Is the show tagged Shougo for a good reason? How heavy are the influences?

For some reason, I really really enjoyed the comedy. I can kind of understand soramaru's feeling... Anyway, great first episode. Not disappointing at all.

Ok, i've read the manga and i wont say spoilers, but with the speed episode 1 went im scared for the rest, but as for my thoughts it was ok honestly speaking. It wasnt bad, it was just paced to fast for the first episode.

For a moment I thought it was a yaoi anime, but it is only shojo.

Didnt really call my attention, but I guess I am going to watch it for now. Shojo is not my thing.

I've seen the first episode and it was great! Eventhough I can't really quite understand some of things, because they talked too fast lol.
I like how the oldest brother act and how loved he is by the third brother.

hope it'll get subbed soon

Not a manga reader myself, but so far it looks promising. I enjoyed the atmosphere.

I hope it will make up for an interesting watch.

Gokumonjo looks like a very creepy place.

Though it feels strongly shoujo influenced...which is hardly surprising.

> "Shirasu, can I punch you?"
> "I'll punch you back on reflex though. Is that okay?" XD

I like how the local people didn't react differently seeing Tenka disguised as a woman carrying Sora in the back. XD

Botan is such a nice person; covering for Chutaro's failure in studies. I wonder why'd she refer to Tenka as "(Tenka)-sama."
Perhaps, since he's the 14th head of the Kumoh Shrine? O.o

Chutaro's obedience is pretty funny; literally doing what Tenka said to. XD
His speed was impressive though! Won't be surprised if he ends up surpassing his elder brothers someday.

Sora is pretty good at fighting too; but he's still not an adept as he should be.
One quick glimpse of that strange memory..What was that? O.o

Kaji Yuki's crying voice reminded me of the time Kou was crying in AHR. Poor guys..

Good start. That ending was very intriguing. What did the officer mean by "something" the prisoners entering Gokumonjo should bring? Megane bastard seemed to understood what he was saying though. O.o

That was a pretty good episode.
Those brothers.
Those fights.
That prison.

Interesting
Gonna keep watching.

Wow, I did not like Chuutarou's voice...other than that (and slight nitpick that Karakara's artstyle can't be completed transferred into anime), I liked it. They did rush through the manga so far, but with the episode numbering, that much was obvious. I think they did a good job though not making it feel unnaturally rushed. Hopefully it stays that way. Love seeing the Kumo brothers animated!

Nakamura-san! <3
Kaji-kun! Sakurai-san! *.*

Won't miss that, mostly because of the three brothers. It could be wonderful it is indeed a shoujo x shounen mix, but it's entertaining as it is. The brothers chara designs remind me a bit of Shichika.

I haven't been able to see all of what I want to watch for the fall season, but so far this is the best one so far.

It was a good intro episode, and I'm excited to see the next episode.

Btw I love how the brothers interact, the gags were funny as well.

As someone mentioned before, it's not surprising that the anime is going fast.... but it just feels wrong ;v; I really liked the manga when I first started reading it a long while back, and I feel like the way the mood of the episode constantly jumps around ruins the adaptation.....

And it doesn't help that some of the OSTs don't match the scenes well. The only time I actually thought a track was fitting was when Soramaru was being carried up the stairs.

...Ok I don't mean to be nitpicky but the brothers' voices are just not the way I thought they sounded LOL. Shirasu's seiyuu was chosen well though.

Don't mind Nakamura's or Yuki's character but can't stand Tsubasa's character,everytime he talks I think of Nagisa from Free!.

Will give this 2 more episodes before dropping.

As for the memory Soramaru recalled,I'm guessing

This was really good, like I was expecting it to be. It was surprisingly hilarious and the atmosphere was really cool. The three brothers interactions are amusing as well.

I have a feeling that guy in the prison in the last scene has something to do with that flashback Soramaru saw..

Probably one of my favorite first episodes of the season so far.

I have the feeling that I'm going to enjoy this series! I haven't read the manga, so I don't know what to expect like some of you, but there was more comedy than I anticipated. That's not a bad thing at all. The art and character designs are quite good, and the story seems to have a lot going for it. Definitely looking forward to it!

That was certainly fast paced. I guess the way some scenes were re-arranged made it seem faster than usual. I just really love the character designs though. Tenka's hair hnnnnnng.

I don't like it either but that's mostly because i'm not a fan of that voice actor in general.
One of the reasons why Nagisa is my least fav Free! but hey that's a completely different topic.

Could have been better, but still -- great start. The relationship between the brothers really got to me, especially how you can look up to and dearly love your siblings while still thinking them really freaking stupid. Gosh. <3

Not bad at all. I enjoyed it. I hope we can learn more about that brothers recollection of seeing someone getting murdered. Also it seems the oldest brother sees that teacher lady as a suspicious person.

I thought the first episode was okay but it felt so meh. The pacing was pretty rushed and the way they didn't go in chronological order and skip some scenes in the manga just to make the show seem more "funnier." I don't know maybe I'm just nitpicking but I couldn't enjoy it. Here is hoping that the second episode is better.

This was one that I was going to try out before committing to watching--it is officially added to my list for the season. I liked this episode--there is obviously a lot more going on behind the scenes.

Yes and yes. Although I actually didn't even think of anything when he voiced one character in Hakkenden. But idk, Yonaga's voice just really doesn't fit Chuutarou imo and not because I don't like his voice. At least everyone else sounded great.

I guess it looks promising so far?

I've read the manga but it has been a while but things are different then a remember.. skipped over some stuff and mixed some chapters up? also more comedy then I remember..

also they did a pretty good job adapting the art style into anime.. I would imagine it would be a hard style to cell shade and animate but its okay.

ahh it feels a little rushed from this ep.. I hope that doesn't ruin it too much.. I wish they gave it more eps so it could be better adapted
