Great first episode. I was hooked from the first minute. 'twas very Code Geass-esque, except it's a more SOL setting with a genki imouto. I like it. And it's P.A. Works. Even better.

Pretty great first episode, and lots of funny bits. It's unfortunate that Yuu's imouto Ayumi is not as kawaii personality-wise, as she looks, but she's still fairly likable. Too bad it doesn't look like we'll be seeing any more of Yui.

Mixed feelings about this. It has the potential to be really good if it doesen't go for the moe SoL route.
First half was great, really enjoyed it.

I can't believe people are already judging this anime base off ONE episode rating it low or very high. Never change MAL! I doubt this anime overall is going to disappoint. The main character is already leaps ahead of any MC key has done in the past. That being mostly boring and generic

Well... the MC is really honest with the uses of his power. All those evil grins and ulterior motives :o I did sort of enjoy seeing his plans falling into ruins, but it was rather interesting regarding his study methods and general use of power. If I can get away with it, I think I would be down to do some of the things he is doing, that classical laugh in the classroom, though.

Him expecting a long distance relationship, that really is quite the selfish thought. Looking forward to other powers, loved how the story started with lewd things first. lol

It was better than expected, I didn't like the protagonist way then it got crushed in front of him, that was so satisfying. The pace was good and the animation too. I'm looking forward for this serie.

It's pretty obvious too that the idol has an ability.

My thoughts exactly

Love the MC. wish i could have seen him completely fail using his abilities and then learn a life lesson but NO, STUPID Nao Tomori had to Butt in and stop him from learning life lessons.

But Seriously though looking forward to this show, obviously deaths are gonna happen.

Well yeah. Angel Beats, Clannad, Little Busters, Rewrite etcetera are all hilariously stupid comedies early on. Kanon perhaps a bit less admittedly but in general that's the way it goes. Cheer you up first then come crashing down hard with #feels later on

Anyways

Great episode! Can't wait for more :3
He's easily the best male lead of the season so far imo

This was much more interesting than I expected it to be, Yu is quite a fresh breath as a main-character. I'm really curious to how the powers work in this universe, and how this powers will play out in the story.

MC is a bit of an jerk ...but a lovable jerk - I cant dislike him

Even for a first episode I think it was pretty well done, lots of potential and was very entertaining

Thought it felt familiar somehow then finding out Jun Maeda is one of the creators :) I hope this series goes well

Looking at the titles of the episodes, of course as it was created by Maeda - he's going to throw the feels at us.

The MC is a huge jerk but I love it especially the smirk and when he started laughing in class. He got what he deserved though, that's for sure.

Imouto's voice is irritating af.

I'll definitely keep coming back for this one.

First impression...good.
Right off the bat, I already hate the MC...the way he use his power for those stuff does not look good for a MC.
Oh well, now he got house arrest and got dump by a person that have not date him.
I still a bit piss at MC, but still like him as well.
That person in his sister and his dream might be his older brother? Interesting.
As a first episode, this is already interesting...looking for to it.

Pretty interesting, I guess. I usually watch anime in bulk, so I don't really have a good feel for the show yet. I wonder how much action it will have, or if it'll be more slice of life with super powers.

i was mumbling "wow he's an asshole" the whole time, but he got what he deserved at the end. hopefully he'll become a better person but retain some of that arrogance - Key animes are filled with straight-up nice or bad-to-good guys.

the eyes on the two girls from the other school bothered me a bit, especially the redhead with the giant emeralds for irises. still, PA delivers and is consistently the #2 studio regarding animation quality.

this will be good. no doubt about it.

The only male MC that I didnt like from a Key anime is the male MC of Little Busters, mainly because he looks like a moe chick and is voiced by a chick.

But I liked the male MC of Air, Kanon 2006, and Clannad.

The male MC of Angel Beats was alright. Nothing to brag about.

MC pissed me off but I still like him. Reminds me of Lelouch. Although not sure how he was able to get perfect scores by cheating off others...

Overall strong start.

I don't expect this show to keep the energy up in the long run; but for what it's worth, I'll give compliments to the first episode and say that yes, it was funny to see the MC act like a jerk with his powers, only for it to bite him in the ass. And the hook is fine too, but since I don't know where they're going with it, I can't really judge it for certain.

They admitted in the previews that there wasn't going to be any superhero action in this show so I'd say the latter somewhat.

I'm watching because i hope to see Yuu become a less narrow minded, selfish idiot. The idea with having incomplete abilities sounds interesting too.. lets see where this goes.
I'm not a manga reader, so when i watch an anime, i only consider the "quality" of the series from it's story and visual, effects etc... i don't care if people think a certain series is bad compared to it's manga when i haven't read that.

No one has made a best chick thread / who do you ship the male MC with thead. So far so good. Lets see if we can make it till the end of the anime before someone makes that thread.

I like Yu, he's a dick, but you can at least tell he's not all bad. Cares for his sister and caused fights between guys that were not that great. I like Nao so far, she seems to have this dry, playful side to her, with a dash of manipulation.
I was also pleased by the fact that though Yu probably isn't a genius, he's clever. Cleverness is a trait that always seems to be lacking in highschool characters.
-Objectivity in regards to anime does not exist.
-You can only ever argue why you liked/enjoyed something.
-Claiming otherwise is laughable.

The MC reminds me of Kanie from Amaburi a lot. It also looks like everyone in that school they're going to has special powers and i'm guessing their powers must all have limitations as well. Since the 3 powers we've seen are all useful, but have a drawback to them. So far that was a great 1st episode and will definitely be watching this one this season.

Damn what he did to the truck driver was a dick move just to get a date.

Pretty weird how he got a perfect score with copying and he was the only one with a perfect score.

Decent start.

Good first episode. Main dudes an asshole, though I like him because of that, but I'm sure he'll change as the series progresses, and rest the cast intrigues me as well. Love how he got hilariously dumped (well not technically cause they weren't dating but you know) at the end there, like she had this real cold attitude to him, but to be fair the dude kinda had it coming. I also like the idea that they all have powers, but each of them have certain drawbacks which make them kind of suck, it at least gives the super power thing which we've seen so many time a little bit of a twist.

I sense some foreshadowing. Ayu had the feeling that there was another sibling, Yuu had the dream, and that girl Yuu was after had a change in tone at the end of the episode. Possibly a character that manipulates minds?

My only complaint is the annoying little sister. After that, loved it, especially the MC. He reminds me a little of Amagi Brilliant Park MC (coincidence they share the same seiyuu?).

Good episode. 4/5
i did not like Nao though she behaves like a little b*cth. she did not have to beat him up, he just wanted her to stop filming and reached out to get it. also why did he not just use his power on them 2?

Great first episode, does this anime not have an OST or ED yet btw?
I like how the MC is such a selfish guy, quite different from what I usually watch. I dislike that girl with the invisibility powers though, I hate it when people try to force others into something like this. But oh well, I'm expecting great things from this anime! I like the art and characters for one, not to mention his loli sister is uber kawai.

How are people so impressed by the lead? He's just the typical jaded bored-of-the-world high schooler. I guess you have to stick with what works. The cast is also standard. Cute little sister, glasses sidekick, and the chick reeks of being a Rei clone. Could be good if they add better characters later on.

This girl



can. go. die.

All the fun: Destroyed.
All the tyranny: Eliminated.
MC: Suddenly forced into an annoying contract.

This ep legit started as a 10 out of 5. Dropped to a 2. :I

The 'using powers for good' is so over done. It's ruined this ep.
Straying away from the negetives~
Highlights:

-The two girls at the start
-The dumping scene(roflmao)
-Yu's voice + personality + dat smirk
-The first half.

Predictons:
-Yusarin and Yu's lil sis most likely have powers of their own.
-Yu x Nao

That hope...gone. I'm crying.

And here I thought Nao was gonna be waifu material. She has a great personality, too. Author whyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy????////////slashslashslash

Definitely not satisfied with this episode.... doesn't go up to expectations.

The only thing 'KEY' about this episode is the cafe's name. Other than that, I've only seen standard typical anime logic.

Let's hope this changes by time.....
