Enjoyed this. Doesn't try to be too "deep" and bombard you with incomprehensible dialogue which is a failing of many sci-fi anime. It's nice and to the point. It's also refreshing to have an adult MC instead of the classic shounen hothead or self insert characters. Oh and he drives a 1967 Toyota 2000GT which is the most classic of all Japanese sports cars!

the dancing op was a win.
this show caught me by surprise and im enjoying it. The sci-fi-ness is nice, so was the action.
the android girl really intrigues me and kyouma is pretty ba so far.
looking forward to the next ep

The limitless energy concept and the huge reactor like thing in the background gave me a bit Vividred Operation feelings - without the docking of course.

Great visuals and pretty interesting first episode.

The animation in this episode was impressive. Since it is one cour it will probably an anticlimactic ending. So it can avoid having a meandering plot as well, I'm hoping it will go the episodic route with Mira and Kyouma as the unlikely duo solving retrieval cases.

I liked it, the MCs character design wasn't very memorable, but he has enough quirks to make him likeable, and he's a badass. The robot is an improbably hot female, and I guess it's not something to complain about, but it definitely breaks immersion. Doesn't seem terribly unique plot wise, but I'm interested in the illegal coils and how all that will develop. The dance i the intro is great, I hope any fight scenes also have choreography and animation quality. Good animation for the first ep, and that slap.

I love the MC. Mira a best grill.

Generic anime, but it has some potential.

This show instantly reminded me of darker than black and I'm sure everyone would agree. Looking forward to see the anime progress. Also is it me or does that main character's outfit remind you of star wars a little bit i know japan had robes first, but he freakin feels like some jedi knight. (maybe im just having to much star wars hype)

Visuals are nice, but the first episode just didn't do too much for me. Doesn't help that the MC is kind of a jerk.

Mabuchi Kyouma is the best looking male main character design I've seen in a LOOOONG time. He's like a mishmash of Spike Spiegel because of his slender face and the beard reminds me Jet Black from Cowboy Bebop.

He had awesome dance moves in the OP but I'm still testing the waters with the OP, not sure how to feel about it yet.

The story is only somewhat interesting so far, I haven't read the manga so I don't know what to expect. I've been picking up a few new manga to read with Winter 2016's Anime lineup.

Mira is uber cute and has a hot, tight little body. I'm not feeling her green hair though. Sorry.

The idea of illegal and legal coils and different dimensions is really cool. I'm looking forward to sick rides and lots of unintentional-sorrynotsorry fanservice.

Well, I just jumped into it unknowingly and I have to say that I can see a bit of familiarity with some series and mostly it's like taking the best of the genre, which seem to be light-hearted enough, like not taking itself too seriously (just look at the character design - that Kouma is hilariously antiquated). In other words, the experience feels balanced this far and I'm kind of certain it will be such between the episodes too. I don't expect something stellar, but it's fine as long as it's quality.

I like how Kouma is not your Normal Japanese Schoolboy. You can't imagine how I'm tired of those. Wait, I bet you can!
Anyway, the girl, while she's totaly cliche (or should I say classic?) - it's a good cliche, she is very cute. Reminds me of another tailed cutie from recent Utawarerumono. But this one here throwing a mean slap at that.

I bet I'll be rewatching this when it was over.

I don't know if this anime will be for me.
It seems interesting and generic at the same time, but my biggest problem with it is having to stomache the fan service robot. Even if her actions and personally so far didn't annoy me, there's nothing that takes you out of a world more than blatant attempts to sell merchandise which at this point seems to be the entirety of her character, and that doesn't say much about a series that'll revolve around her.
I'll give it a couple more episodes.

Liked that semi-bboy dance during the OP there; the OP and ED are both amazing.

Yeah, Kyouma is a beast!

This series has piqued my interest, next episode please.

Also, the robot girl is cute~

Looks promising...gonna keep an eye on this!
OP is OK, ED is cool!
So...an MC who is from the old ERA and against Coils and uses steel strings with a piercing needle...OK
and main girl is an AI robot that is also like a human and very conscious about being embarrassed.
I think that is not just a nano-black hole from the 4th plane w-axis...but a micro black hole!
5/5!

This anime is looking like it is off to a good start. Certainly not lacking in action or background plot.

Elements of the story paralleled Asimov's "The Gods Themselves" which I read back in '78, and a few bits of Giant Robo.

Certainly looking forward to future instalments.

Excuse the mancrush, but I am overjoyed that I am not the only person here who read that novel, makes me feel younger than my years. And the lovely thing is that I am absolutely certain the writer of this series has also read that novel (or at least I hope, I think the suppression of illegal coils has far more meaning than the company simply enforcing its monopoly, though I think we will find the ending to be the opposite of Asimov's theme).

But always love an old time SF reader. I have recently started purchasing new collections of all my favorites.

Interesting first episode. I liked this futuristic world, with a badass main character still attached to the past. The cyborg girl seems ok, very cute btw. I hope she'll be useful in the next episodes instead of being a burden.
The art was nice, so it was the animation. A little bit of fanservice in certain moments but still pasable. Didn't payed much attention to the ost, I liked the ending though.

This anime looks promising. If it manages to keep its quality I'm sure it won't disappoint.

Great OP. That dance DOE.
Great animation.
Great main characters.
Great robot girl. DAT BOOTY CLOSE UP.
The first episode had great pacing. Can't wait to watch more!

The only warning is beware sexy robots/cyborg (heard it from somewhere, or is it from inside of my head?)

I don't yet start reading the manga, just saw in store and i really love the graph. It's have a very good critiques on french manga communities so i was sure to start it one day... And i'm not disapointed! Even it's the first ep, we can apreciate personality of each character, we have a very good animation with sound. The story baseline is clearly defined etc... Exactly all thing i need to apreciate an anime! The only one thing i regret is to don't be able to compare with the original support. This morning, before starting yhe anime, i went to my manga store and hesitate to buy DW :3

haha damn - the slap. The sounds his neck made didn't sound healthy xD And the second time neither lol

All in all it looked pretty amazing. But what did that professor do? I thought he'd start some kind of chain reaction to destroy the coil system but considering they were working outside of the range of his device that can't be it. And what did he tell his daughter to do? Why would she collect illegal coils now after his death?

The manga isn't as shitty as gangsta's, in my opinion, so I hope not.

I have hope this can be above average, but who knows.

I really don't know if it will be great. But it was definitely entertaining.

Definitely like that the dialogue and narration was very straight forward, no too much pseudo sci-fi philosophical bullshit.

And just the dancing in the OP.

The whole episode I told myself that this anime looks like "Darker than Black". Kyouma is like Hei and he fights like him. The story seems "similar" so far, I hope it will be as thrilling as "Darker than Black".
Great first episode.

Well, that was rather interesting. I didn't get half of what the fuck was going on, but the action was good. Martial art fighting is best fighting.

I still don't understand what the coils are and what's with that ''W'' dimension. It is basically Z', no...? I mean, it's obviously not that, but I'd like to have a bit more explanation.

The episode had a good first impression on me, I wasn't expecting the big deal but it has potential. There are certain details i liked, others made me laugh, others not much, but in general it's a good anime and it's worth watching to see how it goes.

The OP was a good call, really, it's awesome xD The MC is awesome too, looking forward to him and more bichslaps.

The thing I don't quite understand is why the "robot" girl (or reploid, kind of looks and functions like one) has a... tail? Oh Me! Me! Me! I Know!: FANSERVICE! jajaja. Anyway, it's ok. I'm looking forward to next episode.
