THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA OR LIGHT NOVEL BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
----------------------------------------
Meh, first half was boring with the school lessons but it did introduce Shizuku. And seriously, that kiss.



I guess given the context of this show, it shouldn't be a surprise that Stella would be half naked at one point or another every episode lol. Feels like Ikki and Stella got a bit closer though...

That bath scene. ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)

Was that "anime original slap" (yet again) really neccessary? Silver Link what is wrong with you? I know you can do better...

In other words, as a source reader: "I am disappoint".

So they butcher some scene in the LN? If that so I'll guess I will stick to the source material then. I personally never has any high expectation for this one because it a freaking ln adaptation my only reason for watching this is for the romance and I hope they don't fuck that up. There go down my hope for ln adaptation in general unless they offer actual romance not soft porn harem and stupid dense mc.

Slaps aside, I liked the suffle on the dialogue and I thought that the introduction of Alice and Shizuko was better than in the manga/LN.
Ed was pretty avarage tho.

it's not like that though...have you watch fate/kalied the 3rd season? it's like that they add, remove stuff but keep everything fluid, they didn't butcher the whole at least a few parts. cuz both of them have same directors

There really was no need for the "anime-original slaps" though... that just makes Stella look bad. Doing it once is one thing, but when it's done twice I don't know if this "anime original unneccessary addition" will be present in every episode or at least the first 3 ones...

The anime made it even more painfully obvious, Ikki has like zero pride in front of Stella. And kinda displeased with how they skipped some of the events.

Just watched it, Ikki's family background being explained was really important and because the explanation was long they had to cut out some parts from the novel and made some changes. It was fine they cut out the small fight scene since it was not important. The changes were mostly okay too. The only problem was they cut out the lead-in to the bath scene. It would have been a good scene to show viewers how much Ikki and Stella are interested in each other. That additional scene at the end was really unnecessary and bad move because it suggests Stella being more tsun than she's supposed to be.

Ep 1 was mostly well received which was good but I feel like people would find Ep 2 as so-so. Ep 3 at least needs to make viewers want to continue into watching Ep 4. Would be more helpful if everyone knows that the first arc ends at Ep 4 and the episode is something that even the cast said to look forward to. Ep 4 will be a crucial episode that if it's executed very nicely like in the novel, it will help gain more people following the series or not dropping it.

Not too thrilled about the anime original scene. I feel like some scenes have messed up continuity (maybe BD's will fill the gap), so that's a bit of a downside. Meh to this episode, looking forward to episode 4 still.

It was good but, at the same time, it felt rushed. The anime showed Stella going to the bath scene without proper characterization (the jealousy feelings that consumed her mind).

Wow, it's actually even worse than in the manga. I have no idea how they managed to make worse introduction of the sister and her roommate, both with serious psychological issues. I think the bathroom scene actually made some sense in the other adaptation...This series really goes downhill after the first episode. Oh well, at least it will make a better guilty pleasure than that garbage Asterisk or anti magic failures.

This anime reminds me a lot of Mahou Koukou but it seems way more random. I'm surprised Stella accepted Ikki so quickly, a little to quickly I would think. The ED song also was pretty random. Then again, maybe there's some symbolism I'm missing since I haven't read the source material. In any case, I'm hoping this anime takes itself more seriously in the coming episodes because this episode was a bit to weird.

Nagi x Shizuku

Of course it will be behind Ikki x Stella ship.

Even with change here and there like who is doing Kurogane family exposition and Shizuku meeting with Nagi who is not shown in LN it's still good.

Also the ED feel like Rozen Maiden.
Kickstarter for Rokujouma is fully funded. Good work everyone. Lets wait for the result of our hard work together.

I don't see what the big deal about that slap is considering that the scene still conveyed the message of Stella being in love with him/wanting the D....It was really cute because that scene and every other one showed that she's not really that tsundere at all which is great

The bickering between Stella and imouto was hilarious lol and that kiss was something else....She needs to chill lol but I get why she does these things

Ikki's past is really sad, and his family ate a bunch of asses for doing what they did to him. Still I really like that he was able to bond more with Stella using it and I must say that their dynamic together is great....I ship it so hard

Overall it was a great ep imo and I can't wait for the matches to start (Also I kinda want our main duo to like fuck lol)

Once again, I really thought that I have enough of such scenarios but nah, I can watch and enjoy clichéd like this twice a day and still not get tired of it.

The kiss with Imoto though, I don't like the development where true siblings do that. I can easily take the younger characters going Onii-chan that Onii-chan this but true siblings, no.

All in all, I could complain all days about this anime but I enjoyed the episode still, so who cares.

Okay, I can definitely see the romance between Stella and Ikki developing, but are people really SURE this isn't a harem? I only ask cos it's the only way his sister snogging him like that and that other girl with the glasses and big tits clinging to him like that more or less without warning can really be justified as far as I'm concerned. Of course, having not read the novels, maybe I'm missing something. It wouldn't be the first time.

Also, how the hell can someone lose a litre of blood every day and still be alive? Surely she has some kind of fatal disease if that's happening. Otherwise, it doesn't make sense, even if it's just a random character trait.

As I just stated they ruined a lot of the scenes by playing them straight. There is a lot of comedy in the LN and Manga that they butchered here, that's why some of the events and character traits seem rather off. Also I can confirm that this is indeed not a harem story, and not the not-harem that Absolute Duo was.

The anime seems really intent on ruining everything that made Stella endearing. Christ. They're turning her into yet another abusive bitchdere rather than the cute classic tsundere she is in the LN/manga.
It's not like she was an amazing character or anything to begin with, but now she's just annoying. Great job Oonuma.

I Just hope a mod does not delete this lmao, it took some time to make ._.
Now, I went blindly into this series and that fanservice is nice I guess, I was never a fan of ecchi anyway so with my no drop policy I'll just carry on watching this series.
The backstory of Ikki was so simple and plain that I could not care for him.
The tropes make it alive I guess :P
I don't know why people write that they are approachable persons,
if you were you wouldn't be on MAL.

What in the world.. some how this was worse than asterisk this week. It's like they are flip flopping to see which could be the most terrible show for the season. I think I need to stop looking at LN adaptations as a whole.

The introduction of Alice was kinda weird, how Shizuku just started talking about all the heavy things, to something she just met.

The progression for the two's relationship is going pretty fast.

His grandfather is a fine person to look out for him, and saved him when he most needed it.

I kinda want more comedy scenes, ones that would put a huge smile on my face. The ideas are definitely there.

I would think the battles are something to look forward to, though it makes me curious to how they will make the whole burst thing stay interesting.

Okay. Me likey :3

Stella is still best girl. She's adorable. Being all jelly and announcing she's Ikki's servant in public and then the bath scene. Kawaii and HOT. Perfect waifu.

Shizuku was awesome tho. Dat immediate kiss in public. And being VAed by Nao just makes me love her even more <3

Loved Shizuku and Stella's cat fight XD All Dat shit talking lol

I guess Ikki is way stronger than the first ep was showing him to be. I really like Ryouma. Hope we see more about him.

Just for the anime-only viewers: There was a scene in the LN and manga where Ikki was shown to be a lot more popular, with fangirls swarming him. Then a bunch of jealous guys try to attack him, only for Ikki to pwn them with his bare hands and an ERASER. That whole scene was removed completely. THAT is the extend to which this LN is being butchered.

That's another good story which anime adaptation is now endangered because the producer team listened to market demand. :(

Well, I know it's character introduction, but instead of showcasing "that" part more, why no showcase the drama more and let the ecchi be "just passing scene" or perhaps better: "smart jokes" (like the first episode) instead of "porn jokes"?
Look how much details you have to leave behind about Ikki's background.
Not to mention that Stella's background still left mostly empty.
Less ecchi, more drama & romance. Don't compete in market where you would clearly lose. Aim for "Sweet Romance" market where there's almost nothing like that this season, instead of "Ecchi" market where you have the likes of Shinmai Maou & Gakusen, all more superior in terms of visual art.
Ignore the market, the original content is good enough to earn you as much.

Heuh
Feels like a clear announcement: "Read the original version. Ignore this."

S**t, and this is my fav of the season :(
I'm sad :(
