At least say why~

I mean, you quote my whole paragraph. Idk what you mean by annoying
-Nao Tomori(the character)?
-The fact that I don't like a character because they ruined an anime and brought in cliches?
-The big pic?

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.

I dont normally like these kinds of anime but this was pretty entertaining well the first half anyway, dont know if i'll really like this but if it ends up being too overly feelsy and dramatic like i'll probably just drop it just like angel beats, seeing the studio behind this then thats a strong possiblity

If Ayumi keeps talking in third person, Wintermute swears he'll drop this series, he absolutely hates that.

Setting seems fairly interesting.

I hope this gonna be as good as Angel Beats! :)

I like Tomori. I need more video clips of her. Not enough from this episode.

I keep imagining this will become something like Death Note where Yuu will be in full control of everything in his school if Tomori's student council had never intervened. Nonetheless, I'd like to see where this is going. First episode had a really good start,

And Yuu has such an adorably sweet imouto. <3

Hmm, so far the series looks interesting. The pacing, as well as the ost and the animation, was pretty decent. 8.5/10. I got Takamatsu vibes from Joujirou, which I found rather amusing because many of KEY productions consist of some variables which are similar to its other series.

It was quite alright in my book. The main character felt relatable and somewhat realistic. I know I'd done the same if I was in his shoes (except the truck thing). What I disliked was especially the comedic timing, it felt really off and I can't stand the female character designs, oh, the loli imouto was annoying too. Besides that, it's fine. 3/5 - I'm definitely going to follow this.

A lot of weird MCs this season.....

We got a trap, a reverse trap and a WTF version of Lelouch/Kira.

I thought it will be a serious anime...... Now it's comedy.....

Hehe, using his powers for perverted stuff and cheating on tests... quite the scumbag to be honest and it seems he's an all round scumbag lol...

LOL, nice assist Mitchon XD

At the moment Yuu is running for "Scumbag of the year" award and is winning by miles XD, although it's rather refreshing seeing a MC being something else than a nice guy.

Awww, damn, his lil' sis is such a cutie :3

Ah, so he has somewhat of a reason for being such a scumbag eh...

Nice first episode, I really like the idea of their powers have their upsides and flaws. Main character is also a charming asshole.

Of course this won't be anything like Clannad or Little Busters but I'm glad we're getting something a little different from Key. Hopefully this doesn't disappoint.

Ah this was great!!! It was hilarious, especially the first half with the main's introduction. Like some others have mentioned I actually like the mc cause he has a personality and isn't like the typical pure innocent savior of the world leads that we've seen so much (too much) of.

I like what I've seen of the of the other characters so far as well, except the imouto. She's too loli/moe in a bad way. I can forsee her really grating on my nerves down the road if she gets too much screen time.

I remember reading after the first half of the series the tone is suppose to change but I don't remember where I read that at.

Blew me away on every level. Seems very interesting, creative, and promising. I look forward to this immensely.
If I have recommended manga to you, or you want manga recommendations, feel free to PM me your thoughts.

Will officially shit my pants if Horimiya gets an anime adaptation (not the OVA).

Horimiya, Gekkan Shoujo Nozaki-kun, and Oregairu will be published in the States. Praise Yen Press. Also, good job to Viz Media for picking up Oyasumi Punpun.

I watched it as a first time viewer without knowledge of the source materials or the synopsis. My reaction was based only on what I saw

Is the MC a retard? He could have potentially killed everyone in the vicinity of the truck's area.


It's obvious the white haired girl was watching him for some time (SMall scene where you see her with a camera when they announced test scores) Wouldn't surprise me she seen what happened with the whole truck thing, hence why she beat the shit out of him, for being a idiot and abusing his power.

Damn this MC a straight G level savage, how you gonna almost murder the girl just to get attention from her.

And when he was running from the school, grabbed her, she fell, and he just continued running almost got me crying from laughing lmao.

My candidate for the MC of the season right here, I just hope he doesn't change later on in the series, and hope he gets some kind of revenge on that blue eyed girl for ruining all his shit.

Better than the MC straight up killing someone. He deserved to be punched for what he did. That's exactly what he got. He could've killed a number of people, just to get with a girl who he hasn't met. Come on, If you were watching him abusing his power and almost getting people killed you would've done the same thing. Just like if you had his power at his age with raging hormones you would've done the same thing he did. Why don't you wait and watch a few more eps rather than jumping the gun?

Man, that was totally fun. I mean, this is the kind of superhero fiction that i really like, that can portray the protagonist as close to reality as possible. I mean, if i were to have a superpower, i'd definitely not using it to save or conquer the world, but to do some petty tricks by gaining advantage over others. I like his personality already. And the scene when the invisible girl and teleporter dude ganging up on him was hilarious i can't stop my tears.

Not bad. I liked this episode. The main character reminded me so much of Lelouch, though. And he's such a jerk. He could have gotten someone killed with that stunt he pulled to get that girl to like him. And him getting "dumped" at the end made me so happy cause he totally deserved it. Looking forward to the next episode.

One of the seasonal anime so far that I fell in love with after the first episode!

The MC is like a lesser intelligent Light and Lelouch.

The pacing was good, I liked the humor it had, the characters were properly introduced, and the animation was great as expected from P.A. Works.

The action in the first episode was probably a lean towards a possibility that the series will have fight scenes in some episodes.

Fight scenes or not, This is an anime I will enjoy for the next 12 episodes.

The girls are cute, as expected of Key.

I like the MC so far, although he's kind of an ass xD

Interested to see how the special powers affect the story.

Overall I was very pleased with the presentation the first episode provided. I went into this series with no knowledge at all other than that Key worked on it. I'm hoping for another great supernatural anime like angel beats with all the emotion and feels. At first I even doubted that Charlotte was even in the supernatural genre, but all of those doubts were gone after the first episode. I really enjoyed the MC even though he is a complete jerk. (I kind of see some Lelouch in him... maybe its just his power has something to do with his eyes...or maybe his hair... or maybe his smirks... or maybe his fabulous evil laugh... nah I don't see it anymore XD) I believe that Charlotte might just have what it takes to go beyond a favorite of the summer 2015 anime season.

Ayumi (the little sister) and especially Tomori made this episode considerably less enjoyable than it should have been. The former was too loud, and the latter was incredibly annoying. It is usually pretty hard to annoy me with a character (unless they're just poorly written), but Tomori did that reallllly well. All the interesting opening of a show plot arc... destroyed.

I don't enjoy when shows start with a good story and setting and abruptly end it. Why not enjoy when something is good for a while instead of just abruptly ending it immediately? If the first half of the episode be a mini-arc across a couple episodes with more buildup, events, and shenanigans, I'm sure what we saw in the second arc would have more impact.

This show will probably be similar to Angel Beats in that it will have a lot of content crunched into too little time, although I doubt it will be anywhere near as bad as Angel Beats in that department (which had well over a dozen characters, almost all of whom were merely "there"). Hopefully KEY learned from past mistakes and instead focuses on a select group of 8 or so characters. Even though I disliked the sudden change of direction, it at least still remains interesting, and the main character is still really interesting.

There's still 12 episodes to go, so hopefully this "lost" potential is merely a ruse, and this show brings back a lot of the elements that made the first half of this first episode amazing.

Edit: I gave this episode a 4/5. I'm still kinda mad they didn't expand upon what was done in the first half, because that was amazing and thoroughly entertaining.

Guys prepare your tissue boxes !

hype T_T/

Ayumi has same quirk Fuko, dozing/daydreaming to stars/starfish

Should I consider to wait for this to finish and marathon it? Can't wait for next episodes :|

Why do I have a bad feeling all those superpowers have side effects, like for tomori, a certain one, can't see her anymore :O

This first episode of Charlotte was very enjoyable. Yuu is such a douchebag though, wow. Ironically, the voice actor of Kanie from Amagi Brilliant Park voices Yuu and Kanie and Yuu are very similar too. Yuu also reminds me of Lelouch and Light. xD Yuu's ability seems very useful but he constantly abuses it. I'm already really liking Nao though. Ayane Sakura's voice fits her character perfectly. Her ability is really unique too; to make her invisible to only 1 particular target. Yuu's little sister, Ayumi, is so cute! She probably is the negative for majority of viewers but I thought she was really cute and fun. :P

I really like where this is going, really good start. We got a tease of Yusa on the TV screen. I'm expecting her to appear next episode or maybe a bit later. Also looking forward to hearing the OP and ED next week. Lia please. <3
5/5
