Totally sold.

Amazing visuals, cast of fun and diverse characters (yeah, they hit certain tropes but all characters do nowadays), silly "science" description for why this happens and I'm totally cool with that, fun use of phantoms so far so they aren't just generic.

Also. Dat limbo scene.

Despite that, the fanservice wasn't really explicit. They had so many opportunities for upskirts but they avoided them. The tit thing was pretty damn obvious but when compared to the fanservice in something like Asterisk War, this was done somewhat modestly and also in a funny, clever way instead of Asterisk War's episode one going "Guy walks into room, girl is in panties, long panning shots and then he runs into another girl who sticks her tits in his face and then pulls up her shirt to show her thong straps to him".

It really reminds me of Amaburi. I can't be the only one right?





Also the limbo scene.

Crappy duo of a super strong girl and a complete wimp voiced by that guy who's in way too many shows recently routine. That's one poor start. And how to NOT write characters. I admit, I watched it past the 5 minute mark only because of the fairy. Ok, ok and bloomers...

Sadly, it seems like another series that could be half decent if it wasn't for an unbelievably shitty MC. And really? "It's a common knowledge but I'll explain anyway"? Scriptwriter should get his ass kicked for something like this. I'm not sure what to think about breasts dodging limbo though... HOTD comes to mind... Anyway, it's hard to run a show on fanservice alone so it will probably be a drop soon.

Who would have thought years back that KyoAni will become an epitome of almost everything that is wrong with anime industry now.

I thought it had a pretty good start for an anime. Mai seems very interesting and the opening and ending songs are very nice to hear. I especially like how they practically made it feel like if Chunnibyou actually became real.

Limbo scene and bouncy boobs are the highlights.

Does anyone know what are the two dots on Mai's face? Are they just moles?
But it's important to remember that a movie review is subjective;it only gives you one person's opinion.

It doesn't matter if you like LoGH,Monster etc.If you are a jobless or college/school dropout living in your mom basement, you are still an unintelligent loser. Taste in anime does not make you a better person.If elitist don't exist, casual pleb and shit taste also don't exist.

Seems like people like it, but as KyoAni fan and after great Euphonium really dissapointed or kinda hyped it up for nothing. I think i would be amazed if the story will have some extraordinary twist, about the fanservice just don't care. So here are just the standart KyoAni graphics. Don't know if i will try 2nd episode cause the 1st one for me was like an hour long =/

This was surprisingly interesting to watch.

The OP is really upbeat and catchy.

So the team actually formed rather quickly. They even found there last member all in one episode.

~Great first episode!!!

Plot seems interesting, not a huge fan of all the fan service. I don't mind a little but I hope this series doesn't rely on it. Spent more time looking at the boob physics then paying attention to the show ffs.

My expectations for this show weren't as high as, say, Sound Euphonium!, but I at least had more fun here than watching the first EP of Asterisk and Amagi Brilliant Park. Nice characters and animation so far, and I'm happy they avoided the classic "MC touches boobs of female character" with something less generic.

Dat boob physics, tho.

Maybe that's exactly why it's there for? After watching this I started thinking it would be better for KyoAni to make hentai. They have top notch animation and story or characters don't matter there...

Not bad for a first episode. At least we know what a phantom is. Though my favorite girl in the show is the one voiced by Saori Hayami. Also the OP theme is pretty catchy and I love it.

Hmm, not too bad a start, even with the excessive Mai fanservice (not as though I'm complaining too much). The Phantoms at this point aren't too easy to take seriously - after all, I just saw a limboing utility pole - but I'm sure that's something that will be improved upon in due course. The characters are decent so far, but not yet anything special. Animation is, as you'd expect, top notch though. The OP song's pretty good as well, though the ED is a tad too generic for my liking.

Also, what was up with the forward-facing pigtails on that one little kid? That is going to annoy me way more than it really should.

I absolutely loved it. The overblown fanservice and cliches aren't that bad when there's so much effort put into it. And the episode in general looked top notch.

It was okay-ish. A bit too much on the fanservice, even if the show is somewhat self-aware of how stupid it is, which was shown with the Stair-Scene. If they tone down the Boob-Fondling and focus more on the animation it could be quite entertaining. They fairy is annyoing af though.

Just because you are aware of it does not mean you have a pass for overloading it with fanservice...
I mean its cleaver how you did it and all but...
Whatever I'll still watch it because your art is beautiful as always and Reina is freaking cute.

Man I fucking love Kyoto Animation. This is probarly the most anticipated anime of this season for me and I was not disappointed! I basically peed my pants when I saw that the first episode was subbed and ready to watch.

A decent start for the series so far, weird but decent. Certainly not one of the best starting for a KyoAni show but it certainly isn't t the worst.

As always with a Kyoto Animation show the visuals look stunning, absolutely stunning, and that's probably what most people are here for, that and the fan service.

The opening and ending theme are pretty catchy, enjoyed them both, let's see where this show heads into it's second episode and whether or not it can keep my attention.

Not too bad. I'm always a sucker for KyoAni's humor and "animation" (aka oppai). I hope that there is a solid overall story to this one as well. Will continue to watch.

With a biiiiiig dose of indecisiveness, I'm adding this to a Watching list. Will give it a 3-ep rule, but meh, I'm suspecting it won't stay there, unless something really changes.
Reina is a cutie, but Mai grabbing at different parts of her body to get her special powers, oh my. 8/ Haruhiko doesn't really feel like an MC, which is not surprising, since boobs grab all the attention. And yep, Ruru is annoying.
On the brighter side, great graphics, as expected! (not Hibike level, but it's not really needed for such a generic chuuni story) I enjoyed the look of pixelized objects slowly getting their shape, looks like a computer game with simultaneously uploading textures xD

Horribly obvious fanservice, annoying af chibi phantom that serves no purpose to the story yet, overly cliche cliches. Yeah Ill probably drop this later.

I started watching knowing nothing about this anime (other than it's not on my to 'try out for sure' in this season list)

The setting isn't bad, and as always Kyotoani makes it nice looking and nice sounding.

Still as the episode progressed, I understood exactly why it wasn't on my to try out for sure list...

I will pass on another 'harem advertisement of LN', I lost all faith in this genre long ago.

Pretty disappointing start. I suppose KyoAni's top staff is too busy working on Euphonium. Will give a couple of more episodes though before making a decision.
