Also, people saying that this is an anime for kids, I would disagree. Brave Beats is a children's anime running this season and so far it's been far more entertaining than this, despite being more absurd in the eyes of older audiences. I bet kids would have a better time watching BB than Comet Lucifer.
Well if this show is designed for teens and a young adults then it fails on nearly every level of story telling so far.
Well there seems to some people who enjoy it (aside from people commenting, the score is still above 6, meaning a majority of people are rating it above 6). What I meant though was that it if fails as a show for many teens/young adults, it also fails as a show for kids. I don't think kids want to see another kid that can barely talk (Felia), at all. I also don't think that it's safe for kids to see that "rape" face from last episode :P

For me the real draw of the show is how they invest in Felia. After years of seeing light novel adaptations sexualizing little girls under or look under 13 then seeing Felia being cute and innocent without being sexualized is such a breath of fresh air. Yeah, her licking in the second episode was pushing it but the was simply innocent.
The show is innocent! [...]
And when things get serious the tone shifts pretty smoothly. This show is about innocent family bonding and protecting that family. I just wish this show can get more respect.
I think watching a what looks like a 10 year old acting like a toddler is not far under sexualizing little girls. They are both annoying, and the latter being distubing. If Felia was like Naru from Barakamon, I would have zero complaints about her. The thing is the creators are pushing to make Felia really cute (like Noel from Sora no Method, although Noel feels more genuine). Let's say that it makes sense that Felia doesn't know anything since she just came out of a crystal, but she has a faster learning curve than a human baby. She should be acting like a toddler then, but this is not how toddlers act, and I would know since I've worked at a daycare center for infants and toddlers. She acts more like a pet, but one that can speak words occasionally and get a little angry. If you like Felia, then that's great, but people who don't like her or find her interesting will need another reason to like this series.
This show is not innocent...what kind of innocent series has a character going looney like this:
Yes I realized that you mean innocent by the family relationship, but if that was truly what this series was, it wouldn't need such terrible antagonists (the guy going on a killing spree in jail in episode 2 and the repulsive pedo in episode 3). If the show is not getting respect, it's most likely because of that purple hair glasses villain.

Yeah! I see your point. The direction is a bit off. Though most anime characters never act their ages at times I can agree that Felia is acting too immature. Maybe she will mature in due time.
Yeah, the pedo makes this not innocent but the family bonding is. And I laughed when you showed that picture. "Is this innocent?" And then show that picture. That made my day.
As long as Felia doesn't get super sexualized I will keep watching this show smoothly.
Glad it made you laugh :) I'm sure Felia will stay innocent for the rest of the show, so have fun watching it til the end.

Sougo really got the wrong timing there!
on no...but yeah right, Felia was easily kidnapped! no resistance whatsoever but that stone whatever that name is really useless! didn't even guard Felia...well as if it could protect felina in that stone form...
that was a lot of CG flying veggies! lot of wasted time!

I also did not expect dancing vegetables.
No one expects dancing vegetables.
I mentioned this before I think but I think this show would work better as a happy slice-of-life series. Trying to add in bad guys and suspense and some kind of plot is coming off as messy. The character design and world design is great, I would have liked if they made an Aria kind of series that just observes what life is like in that world.

Surprised some folks don't like Disney...don't need mal to tell me this show, Gargantia, Plastic Memories, etc all have prominent SOL.
Anyways great SOL moments, bird suit, loved the silly dancing veggies, Felia faces, her emotions affecting the bbq fire, and many coming-of-age moments where she needs to grow up, especially "mom & pop" leaving her, self restraint, and noticed she hasn't learned the word "sorry" yet. Roman's quite funny, poor design taste & kabedon. It also provides a stronger contrast to the kidnap, even though that was expected since ep1 so no surprise.
Glimpse of Sogo's mom. Astronomy council's prophecy, still lots of mystery.
So Chamot can restrain Felia and split into pieces!?
