(To catch up to the heights of angel beats catchy op and end plus animation won't do any good...a better voice cast and story are what this anime needed..)THE MC girl's voice acting is pissing me off and the plot is not that good either...as for the 2nd episode it was entertaining(2.5/5).

OT: Great episode. A very good balance between comedy and drama. Nao's seiyuu is GOAT.

The part where Jou used his powers to grab the sandwiches had me rolling. The opening is great(both song and visual) and i really like Nao now.

Amazing episode cant wait for the next.

Great mix between comedy and drama. Especially the ability of transportation made me laugh. Loving this anime so far.

Hate MC's little sister though.

Ugh, this is so Key.

So it turns out that Nao actually has some character in her, that's nice. Her brother's situation sure does suck. Watching the student council get a hold of the thoughtography guy was pretty fun.
Why do people have such bad taste? Anime isn't subjective anymore.

I'm liking Nao's character. Probably the least obnoxious character in the show.

Her brother's situation screams edge though.

Damn scientists man, that's how they ruin ppl in rl too. Now I really feel for Nao, but I hated her in ep1.

I'm starting to like the glasses guy more and more, pretty funny ability he got lol.

Even tho I like the MC's savage style, I'm glad he's starting to worry for his sister's safety. Respect that.

the sob story was okay, gives characterization to our female MC, possible foreshadowing of the MC's little sister of having powers, and shows the reality of the consequences of having powers.

not so sure how I feel about the constant shift between comedy and drama. Kinda takes away from the seriousness, but we'll see how it works out in the later episodes.

So Nao has had a tough past. I expected it somewhat, but sometimes having someone who is suffering and alive is worse than having them dead and free.


I have instantly fallen for this anime. So many amazing scenery just in one episode. The MC and Nao certainly have an interesting dynamic. I wonder how it will develop as the MC changes and Nao gets closer to him.

The opening (Maeda Jun composition never fails me!) and ending songs are very beautiful. This looks like well on course to be THE anime of the summer 2015 season.

I see P.A. Works well on course of making tons out of it like they did with Angel Beats! (their most successful anime). This anime has all the components that sell well after all!

it's settled: whatever Jun Maeda and Na-Ga and the rest of the Key staff touch turns to gold. the only way i see this not turning out great is if they condense too much information into very few episodes (that was the biggest overall complaint about Angel Beats, which i still love) or if the build up is too exciting and the conclusion ends up being frustrating in comparison (Little Busters).

some very typical Key stuff comes up: the charming, mature-sounding OP and ED, the tragic background story and the inedible food/sauce. hell, even the Angel Beats transition sound effect makes a return.

HorribleSubs cut out the preview so i don't know what might happen next - this might be a good thing, as i don't want to spend a week too anxious for the next episode.

First 2 episodes were enjoyable. I'm liking Nao more and more, as she shows her personality.

I'm glad that some people already judging the show based on their senseless preconceptions are dropping it, and I hope others that are similar follow suit.

Oh this is Key. I am guessing the Mc's brother/sister died in the past and the MC's little sister is going to be used as a plot device to further the story because she probably will have some uber power that the scientists would want. The question is which character will be killed off; The MC, sister, or the bossy president. If everybody lives in the end there probably will be glowing orbs that supernaturally saves everybody with a piano theme.

This turned into typical Key copy pasta.
The MC is devolving into goodie two shoes by exploring his FEEEELINGS and being AMAAAAAZED at all those NIIIICE people.
We already started KEY's trademark sobstory backstories but its way too hectic to "feel" anything.
We got some mystery stuff and scifi stuff but it all feels like an afterthought to otaku pandering.
We also got some out of place angel-beatsy "comedy"
The rest of episode filled with typical KEY dirty otaku bait

This really does feel like Angel Beats 2 and nope nope nope I am not sitting down for such a trainwreck again.

2/5 and bye.

Another great episode. Hopefully, they give more details as to who established the school and is protecting the ability users (which I think they will but still) and how come the scientists stay away from the school knowing that there are lots of ability users there. Also, I hope there is more to the scientists than "they are evil or whatever". I really liked the OP. Anyways, looking forward to more.

Didn't like this episode that much. I feel like the show's climax might be the little sister's ability being found out before her brother and the show doing a brother vs scientists thing. Regardless, I'll keep watching. Might find something I like.

I just can't stop laughing when megane-kun is using teleportation.Most stupid and best part of the show so far for me.
Seriously tho, this is really KEY-ish as others said, but i don't dislike that.I just have a hope, that major events won't be too similar to ones of their other works.That's all i want from this.

Sob story would be great and all if only I cared about the character. Oh well, can't be helped. Doing the slomo effect with Joujirou is amusing though.

I couldn't just skip the op nor the ed they were simply so good to hear *__* Loved this episode especially Nao's past, such an unfortunate event... I hope her brother will regain his health, his ability is quite the interesting one I'd love to see it.

Both like the OP and ED. Well, for this episode, it felt too fast-paced buuuuuuut I really like Nao's moments in this episode. Also, that slow-mo teleportation, typical Jun Maeda.

The pacing was a bit too fast for my taste but whatever. The OP and ED are great and learning about Nao's brother and why she's always alone was interesting.

Yuu is hilarious, really like him. Tbh Nao playing mental games is extremely entertaining to me.

4/5

Execelente episode. Without making comparisons , but it ends up being inevitable , I much prefer the comedy KyoAni in the works of Key than the PA Works , I think the PA works best with action and dialogue scenes with scenarios Ufotable style , as is the KyoAni good dose of comedy with drama. I thought the transition of the two in this episode was much of anything, it could have done five minutes of comedy and drama the rest , but the episode went flying, eisso is rare nowadays , want an episode anime last longer.

Too bad we will only have one cour : /

I knew that recognized the sound of the OP, It's the same chick who did Angel Beats' OP.

Looking into that made me find out the background of this anime as well. It's written by Jun Maeda. Shit. I'm starting to have doubts about watching this. I don't wanna end up crying.

Great episode. I really don't like Nao, she is one of those characters whose voice actor will make me dislike them.

Really liking the male lead so far. Surprising for me to say this, but I hope there is no romance here, at least not with Nao, that would suck imo.

4/5

Nao Tomori is fighting against Otosaka Yuu for best character this season. Lol when Udoh called her attractive and then she started to jump around in joy that someone acknowledges her cuteness. Too bad we didn't get to see the picture Udoh had to blackmail her. Bummer.

The humor is awesome here. The super fast dude is hilarious especially when he tries to save the day and then acts like nothing happened.

We get some info on Tomori and why she's so determined to not let these special children run amok. The little bits of emotional stuff are starting to surface now. It was done nicely I guess. This had me at the humor already and I think they might pull off the emotional part well too.

The first half was rather comical, but the second half was filled with feels. I wasn't expecting the emotional moments to start so soon, but it was a great episode.

Also really liked the OP and ED.

Super generic story telling. 2/5 I'll give it 1 more episode to impress me. Maybe this is just an anime that's good to AB fans, too bad I thought AB was overrated.

Well I pretty much agree with you guys but I won't be dropping the series. I don't think I've ever dropped a series cuz I usually pick things I know I will enjoy in the end, plus I hate not finishing what I started. Hmm well I like the story but the way the story is being told is what irritates me. It's Key alright but unlike the other Key series, this one does seem copy and paste.

I'm seeing the feels but I can't feel them...
Meaning all their issues are said too bluntly, like we are supposed to sympathize with them immediately.

For example:
Nao- "Are you doing this to finance your family?"
immediately response "they're sick! there's nothing else I can do!"
One point Nao's brother casually says to his sister "since we're poor...blah blah"
and towards his Mum "you do know our financial situation..blah blah".

Storytelling is generic and the pacing is a bit fast and the way everything is said just seems really forced. I mean, jeez, let me gradually feel sorry for the characters.
Honestly, the only time I felt the feels was the scene of Nao's Mum begging.

The OST screams Angel Beats!! which surprisingly makes me all weird inside (in a good way). Oh and the fact that her brother just so happens to play guitar and Nao wanted to be a doctor - yeah my instant thought was Angel Beats!! again.

Likes: OP, comedy and abilities (that whole ability use in the arrow scene - loved).

Episode 2 = 3/5 it was OK

Um there's a reason why some ppl are comparing it, there are a few similarities...

Key, Jun maeda, PA Works, School for some special people, sob backstories, and a genki little sister
