Just in case anyone is confused. Episode 1 begins next week and episode 0 airs today (the prequel).

Is episode 0 essential to 'understanding' the story or can I just skip it?

Episode 0 can be skipped. Nothing really happens other than fanservice and jokes.

Don't watch it, it's just a spoiler of some characters and nothing important~.. All this fanservice just gives you a bad idea about the whole series. ^^

Sad it´s look like a total Harem show with no good ending romance.

I got fooled to think that the blonde girl would be the Main girl for some reason...to bad..

Just watched it and I saw a similarity in the eye design, kinda like Grisaia no Kajitsu's ones. Anyone else or only me?

Hopefully this episode 0 is just for fanservice. Hopefully the main series isn't another harem.

Am I the only one watching just because of Fumiaki Maruto?

A-1 Pictures and LN adaptation, I'm afraid it's going to be one of those "wasted potential" that overpopulated modern anime, but at least this time the author himself has more control on the story than any other adaptations, and he is not half bad base on his previous anime work White Album 2. Yet watching the episode there is still a clear separation of Fumiaki Maruto's signature humor and character exposition scene, and fan service scene, not sure if it is his intention or just checking items off the check list given by the studio. A fairly weak episode.

Probably. Because I am watching this because of the director, Kanta Kamei. He previously directed Bunny Drop(a masterpiece I must say).

Let's hope it will be better than White Album 2.

Looks like rather than saving the onsen fan service episode for an OVA, or an episode 13, they decided to lead with it. Since this episode seemed to take place six months after the beginning of the anime, it really might be a total spoiler. On the plus side, the girls are fairly attractive, but I already feel like I've seen their character types used in a number of other shows. On the negative side, the male mc seems to be the sort of bland self-insert character you'd expect in a generic series...

The scene where she flips him into the water, I couldn't resist. I managed to weave all the layers together to get this image. Anyone good at photoshop want to try and complete it?

Images aren't working apparently, so I'm sharing the link instead.

I can tell you for sure that the main series isn't ecchi. This episode 0 was an anime original.

So far it just gave me a bad first impression, even if it's anime original and the main series isn't Ecchi.

It's like they planned to turn away potential viewers. Parody+Breaking the 4th wall+Needless Ecchi+a lot of Shigatsu uneeded color palette+Some weird CGI and an awkward pause 3/4 into the episode that was so out of place, but all in all, it wasn't as bad for me as OreShura which is done by a combination of A-1+ the same director. But this episode alone did remind me of OreShura+Ecchi...

Well it's only episode 0 so we don't know how the MC is. I get a different impression from him though and that he simply does not care about getting into any relations and more about making the game. I don't see any indecisive stuff going on.

Still, don't judge the show so quickly. Let see what Maruto is trying to do.

I enjoyed it, I though it was cute. Looking forward to the Episode 1! The only thing is the Male MC (despite his awesome Voice Actor) just seems really bland and uninteresting. But all the girls especially the blonde & the girl with the long black hair I can tell I'll really like.

This anime reminds me of 3 more anime like, real fun like Ginshigin, girls and animation like Bakamongatari x Grisaia no Kajitsu and Aki voice like Kirito SAO.

This so much fun they are an Ero-game maker club what he wants to do with girls
but girls doing it for him, he is so lucky I love the way these girls making a shy face
by doing perverted things I think Katou x Aki prefect match great I like red eyelashes
the most why dose every girl have it like in Grisaia no Kajitsu girl's eyelashes, I will
watch this fully go next.

Utaha x Eriri reminds me of Yumiko x Michiru from Grisaia no Kajitsu and
Katou x Michiru reminds me of Kanbaru x Nadeko well, that's why I will love
these girls like this Tsundere Eriri x sweet Utah, lovely Katou, cheerful Michiru,

It's mostly character introduction and, as the title of the episode states, some fanservice. No panty shots or anything as severe as Highschool DxD, incase people are wondering.
It seems only the first 5~10ish minutes as well as the last scene add anything to the plot so you could just skip the stuff in the middle :P

It was pretty decent.... fanservice was very enjoyable, the characters are a bit on the unique side (as far as anime goes at least)

Will watch.

It's not a prequel, but more of a parody. The events aren't canon.

NOT a prequel. The events take place in the middle of episode 12 of the main series.
