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.
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

Not a bad first episode, but that fanservice. I take that, KyoAni fanservice. I didn't expect them bouncing boobs, lmao. Visuals are great as always. I think this one's going to be fun.

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.

Musaigen no Phantom World EP1 - Great start to the season! Really enjoyed the first episode of this one.

High Points: Amazing Visuals, Interesting Characters(Loving Reina so far), Interesting setting and story, and the OP/ED are very catchy and likeable!

Low Points: Bouncey, Bouncey in the first episode!
So glad that I'm not a huge manga reader, because the manga readers WHINE WAY TOO MUCH and have to RUIN every adapted anime for the ANIME ONLY WATCHERS!

Quite a bit of fanservice >< Like seriously Mai touching herself when using her power is super weird...
I might drop this one

KyoAni, You did it again. Great Job!! :D
I like these anime. as expected from KyoAni, smooth animation like always. the fight was great, and the story looked interesting imo but no plot yet though.....
That dance in the second half XD, i didn't expect that Mai is a funny person. Seriously, i laught so hard after her boobs jiggling past the rope. GG! i think this will be a funny and enjoyable show with great action. i still think that Mai was touching her breast so that she have powers was really weird but it was okay for me.

Can't wait to see the next episode.

Mai = Best girl of the season.

This is pre-pubescent nonsense that even the me half my age would have found dumb. If you're going to have sexy things then either go all the way with actual sex or don't bother at all. 'Boob physics' just feels like something some 10-year-old kid who looked at his first porno mag would find exciting.

The OP was pretty awful but the animation is God Tier. Solid start for this series, don't mind the fan service personally. The character designs look great as well Mai is already a contender for best girl of the season.

Gorgeous animation and I personally like the Idea behind it.
Especially the whole human brain thing, which is a nice twist to the whole Phantom world thing that is going on.
Hope this series gets somewhere.

Good animation. Decent start, but if you analyze it in a detailed way, for now at least, it's pretty generic, 3 episodes rule for me.

That was a really nice start. I enjoyed the visuals, the pace was nice and quick, and the setting is actually pretty good. Like the idea of the perceptions of humanity getting suddenly changed and now the world is just having to adjust to these things becoming part of their reality.

I will say it's kind of fun that they play around with the fanservice a bit. I mean can't say I've seen many limbo fanservice scenes or really any where that kind of tactic was used to win XD.

Like the MC, a very knowledgeable person who reads a lot, Mai is pretty awesome and the main fighter, and Reina has quite the appetite XD.

Just as dumb, cliche and generic as I expected it to be. Though of course, just because it's KyoAni and they have pretty colors, people eat it up.
I'd guarantee if this was made by any other studio the score would be so much lower. 8.04, really? Pathetic.

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 second that.

The episode felt kinda rushed. KyoAni's strength is making the right atmosphere and delivering astounding panoramic backgrounds, while here there's apparently no place for either of them.
Ruru strongly reminded me of Muru Muru form Mirai Nikki.
About the fanservice... Not sure if the originality was ridiculously bad or ridiculously good. Juat like the whole idea of dancing utility poles.

no not pathetic since anime = animated

ppl who cry about stories should go read a book, there are far more interesting stories in western lit than in anime.

Excellent first episode. I like the set up so far, there could be some great adventures in store. Of course, the visuals are incredible, per the norm for KyoAni.

The characters seem fun and interesting. It's only been one episode, so we'll see how they develop.

Ruru is super cute, she reminds me of Shantae.

Can't wait to see more. Just one episode in and it's already miles better than Shit Euphonium.

Also, I absolutely love all the salt in this thread.
