THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
----------------------------------------
Very interesting for a first episode, Yuu has the same laugh than Kira (death note). I expected something like that, a good introductions of the main characters and their powers.
Is the power of his sister is to invoke someone ? We don't know yet.

I am looking forward to watch the next episode.

(I have seen it on Wakanim (http://www.wakanim.tv/), French license).

Well that was quite interesting. It starts off with some narration and possibly..metaphors coming from Yuu.

He seems to have the power to briefly possesses someone for a short period of time. Cheating on tests isn't the only thing he does apparently since he used it on some guys while walking back to school. What a troll lol. Seems like he's kinda popular as well for the ladies.

I think the show has a decent pace so far. Not only did it introduce Yuu and his powers but also his personality. However, I find it that he is a guy that takes HUGE risks. I mean, trying to make himself a hero (initiated by himself thanks to his ability) and to impress another girl...yeah.

Meanwhile, there's Nao with her camera. I find it funny that she just pops up into the story and observed almost all of his actions with that camera. These eyes though...



Nao also has an interesting ability. I don't think it's entirely invisibility but she can become non-visible to a target. Good start overall. It introduced at least 3 of the main characters as well their abilities.The visual quality is also amazing.

I am definitely loving these characters. The powers they have are unique and the story should play out rather nice.

Why I always remember Kanye instead of Yuu.
..and the first episode is literally what happen if Kanye got a special ability and misuse it.

Anyway, that KEY cafe.
overall 8 / 10 episode.
MAL Users hate him!

His discoveries in dredging mountains of lists inside a site revealed a huge shock of understanding the history of Japanese Motion Picture in just few lists. Read his huge yet simple lists and discover how you can also increase your knowledge in japanese timelines by looking at branches he listed in!

Absolutely worth it!
see it for yourself.

Fuck this guy. You know why.

Besides that there's nothing really impressive, the presentation definitely saved the script, which is better than that of AB, and it's not saying much.

I'm starting to think it's not because Jun Maeda failed to adapt to the TV anime format, it's because he is not a decent writer in the first place.

really liking the MC...OST is really good,animation is quite amazing...female mc's power is just like on the railgun's female stalker

currently watching animax version, having full speakers while watching was a great experience, but why do they keep subbing the female Mc as Yuri?

4/5 since there is no op or ed

That's pretty nice first episode, and is better opening episode than Angel Beats.

Let's see is Medea really learn his lesson from AB, for now it's looking good.

Presentation wise it was good but beside from that nothing really impressed me tbh.Not sure how I feel about the characters yet,I'm gonna need some more episodes to see where it goes.Decent start,nothing more and nothing less.
Hope I won't have as much problems with it as I,personally, had with Angel Beats.

It wasn't bad. I like the concept but the story and characters don't have anything on me yet. Like what everyone here said, the presentation was great! The animation was as expected and I loved the atmosphere.

If it wasn't P.A., I would've slept halfway through it.

I like that main character. He is reminds me of Lelouch from how he acts like control of other people but instead of controling them he takes over their bodys. I can tell it's going have feels.
I see the key logo one scene xD "Key coffee

Reminds me of Kanie from ABP but the MC is great so far. He thinks like most of us and takes advantage of his powers. Too bad its only one cour ;_;

Yu is one smug asshole, but not the type you'd continue to dislike since he got busted by Tomori before too long. Not to mention dumped by the girl he was pursuing, which was somewhat surprising. Much deserving consequences though.

Decent start so far. The visuals are particularly outstanding. Hopefully, it'll live up to the hype.

The MC is so cool, even if he is mean and shit, I will get used to him.

Anyways this was a pretty cool first episode, the animation looked so cool when the guy teleported to catch him near the water... This was probably my favourite first episode so far!

So I watched the raw... It was a pretty great first episode tbh, as expected, it looks really good. I was laughing at some scenes, tho I dont understand what they are really saying. Characters are likeable, for me atleast and mc is just awesome, kinda like/hate him. I hope this series goes well. And i need subs asap.

Gotta say, the MC is amazing lol. Like a mini version of Lelouch or something with the evil smirks and glances, and he even has his own Geass :>

A pretty interesting first episode. We got to see some of the main characters' powers and some foreshadowing about that person in the dream. This looks like it'll be an enjoyable show

Otosaka definitely reminded me of Kanie from ABP....then I realized they have the same VA

Characters and their incomplete abilities:

And that's a fantastic episode for a head-start!!! The character design and animation was really good! (Oh it's because P.A. Works)
Wait where the hell is the OP and ED songs? Well anyway it's an entertaining episode overall. Can't to see/watch more next episode next week!

Kanye? Is that you? He was running through my mind the entire time because the MC looks exactly like him and has the same voice actor.
I don't really know what to expect from this show yet.

Don't know how on the mark I am, but I feel pretty confident that Nao is connected to the two siblings somehow, far more than just being part of the group that verified his powers and brought him in. She seems way too interested in his sister, among other things.

Kind of amazed that Yumi girl dumped him in such a spectacularly cold way. His vague non-explanations didn't help, but from the little time I knew her, it still felt out of character. Everyone has things they can't talk about, and he clearly seemed remorseful for the situation, so I don't think she had to go totally ice queen on him. I don't really feel completely bad for him though (though I do feel a bit of pity) -- he almost killed her in order to "save" her. Having won her affections that way is no good.

I thought this would be awesome for the obvious reasons and it is. There's a bunch of stuff about it that I like, for example, the girls that are really pretty, the awesome superpowers, and the story is interesting so far.

I like Tomori so far she's pretty and her superpower to go invisible is pretty cool, but she can only go invisible to one person. Maybe the powers will develop more later. Maybe not though because she said the powers go away at some point. Haro-Haro was on TV it looks like she's the other girl from this anime's main characters so she'll probably be around soon. She's also really pretty I'm not sure if I'll like her or Tomori more yet. I'm excited for her introduction.

Joujirou's power of teleportation is also pretty cool. So far there's the power to switch bodies with someone in sight for about 5 seconds, invisibility to one target person, and teleportation to an imprecise location. If they figure out how to keep their powers and develop them so that they're able to use them more effectively that would be cool.

So yeah this show is extremely awesome and I'd be really surprised if I don't give it a 10/10.

The only reason I started watching this show because it is airing on TV and I am not really impressed. It just feels like I've seen all the characters already in Key's titles.
Pretty average, 5/10 episode.

Maeda Jun signature all over it. A whack of a starting episode with randomness and then ending with something completely out of place that will eventually set the tone for the anime.

Fantastic animation quality as well. I love KyoAni's animation more but P.A. Works has been so consistent for years now that you can simply assume the animation will be nice. Never fails to deliver.

Already like all the characters. Especially Takajou i.e. Usain Bolt X20.

IT'S FINALLY HERE! Visuals stunning as always. Can't expect anything more from P.A. Works. Liked the first episode, can't wait to see more. Thought it was a good way to start off this anime. Characters definitely seem interesting, though Yu doesn't make a good first impression, lol. Really looking forward to the next episode!

Much better than I expected. Looking forward to see where this will go.

Yu's such an asshole XD The ways he used his powers were just too much lol...esp making the truck almost hit Yumi just to save her. DAMN! I can't hate him for some reason tho :P

How can such an asshole have such a sweet imouto ^^;

Tomori seems fun. Liking her already. Her power is quite cool too. And That was probably the first time I ever see a teleportation ability that u can't control the stopping point lol

I wonder what kind of feelz Key will give us this time?

I didn't really know what this anime was supposed to be about when I started watching and so I got stupidly excited after seeing what MC does. I thought it would be something of the Death Note x Code Geass caliber, a loose idea of AOTY flashed across my mind, but alas nope. Suzaku-type characters enter and everything goes to hell.
