Overall it was OK. The first part of the episode was quite boring, but the last part was cool. For so far I've heard it, the voices really fit the characters. *loves Akira* >.<

The lolitas who liked Mina and dont read the manga will be disapointed when they see her true form.

Disappointing. Didn't feel like a Shinbou production at all. I will however give it a couple of episodes to prove itself, hopefully in HD.

Don't worry, those guys able to reach to stage of lolicon are perverted to the point that they're fine with anything as long as they can stick it in ;)

I liked that episode. Mina rulz.

The idea of that stupid TV show which seemed to be like a spoof was interesting.

i personally enjoyed it. I didn't get to read the manga but based on just strictly the tv show it was good. I agree the introduction was a bit long but towards the end it made up for it. I didn't understand the title "prom night" lol but i am def looking forward to the next episode. I like how it is a bit dark and eerie and yet there is anticipation of action. :D

It was OK. As a series it seems pretty sick but the episode was boring because of the first half.. Glad it got interesting from the second half.

Nude =/= "Ecchi".

And I mean, if showing nudity is "ecchi", then Sailor Moon is certainly ecchi given those Sailor Transformations.

I liked it. I did not like much of the transformation vampire/chameleon but the rest really liked. I think the story will be exciting xD

wow... just wow...

I've always shit on the manga vs. anime idiots and I've always shit on the complainers and flamers (nothing good to say? then say nothing)...

I've always said that it's perfectly ok for an anime to differ from the manga...

I like the Bund manga a lot, however I'm no nut case fan-boy, yet this initial anime episode actually made my jaw drop.

even if understoood to be a "divergence from canon" plot this is just... bad...

the first episode has NO redeeming qualities what so ever.

as appreciation and out of a modicum of respect for the manga, I will give this only one more episode and hope for the best...

I just wonder if the mangaka is turning in his proverbial grave or not? he certainly couldn't be involved...

Amazing the power of assumption...Did I say it was supposed to be funny or cute? Nope,the truth is always hard to swallow and yup, those kinda guys exist, are watching this and are fapping over Mina both in her loli as well as adult form as I speak. The purpose of my post merely serves as a reminder of the pervertness of a minority ( or majority?) and that's it. People have different hobbies and fetishes, you can say it's bad all you want but that's not gonna change a damn thing LOL

Oh, and another thing, putting the freedom of expression excuse aside, why should I feel bad if I just talk about the truth in a blunt ( or rather sarcastic?) way? Or do I need to sugar coated my words for fantasy loving people? Oh well, Imma keep that in mind for you next time, Sir ;)

Interesting first episode, I hadn't read the manga nor had I checked the summary so I wasnt sure what it was about but I really enjoyed it. I was a bit boring at the start but I ended up getting hooked to it!

Eh, wasn't too bad just yet. Though that actor vampire was so plot-conveniently contrived, stupid, and well-placed it hurts.

It's more a problem about going from 'person with lolicon' to 'person who'd like to fuck anything', which is simply odd, illogical, and unargued for.

Well it was a 'Meh' episode for me. The whole game show type thing was a bit boring for me, it didn't get interesting until Mina started talking and pretty boy went all gecko-ie.

I found it pretty bad.. We had to listen to some guys blabbering about vampires for half an episode... Also the vampire's true form was like a character from Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.
The manga had a dynamic first chapter the introduction of the characters was cool and overall it was an awesome start.
The anime however disappointed me with that beggining.. unless something else is planned to happen in the near future that'll make me change my mind.

Some peaople who haven't read the manga, might find the episode good, however for us who have read it the comparison between the two comes almost instantly and unconsciously.

If you liked the episode or even didn't skip half of it like I did, and you haven't read the manga yet, you should definitely start reading...

And those kinda guys who possess both qualities doesn't exist IRL, only in myths? That's what I've said in my first post: The existence of people who will be lolicon and will f**k anything, nothing more and nothing less, it's an informative fact, period. Then the 2nd post said that I should feel bad because he/she wants sugar coated words to help him/her live in his/her world of fantasy. And the 3rd post, which is yours, is out of context by imposing your own interpretation. Are you, by chance, able to influence what I typed, Sir?.... *Sigh* and here I thought mods will be able to perfectly get what the posts mean before deleting them...

Oh well, at least with this, I think that most people won't get my post no matter how hard I try to explain it so I guess I don't need to bother with this anymore... Move on...

^ Here you make no distinction, you outright say that if you are a lolicon, you find anything attractive.

That isn't a fact. It's false. :I If that's not what you meant, okay, but we couldn't have known that, eh?

Also, I didn't delete a post? I cannot delete them if I only disagree with them, that'd be silly. I generally delete posts only if they are '+1' or 'this', you know, posts which serve no purpose.

That sure was an...interesting way to start a series o_o; I can't say it was really...entertaining to watch the first half of this episode. I respect their different way of starting a series, but it just wasn't as entertaining as it could have been. They really saved themselves with that flashy ending...I will continue watching just to see more of the characters xD
Bleed for me.

LOL so just by denying what he isn't, that's a big spoiler? Funny since if you click his character in the character list you get a LOT more spoilers than my mere denial of ONE possibility.

A spoiler would be if I confirmed who or what he is. Something I did not do

No, a spoiler is giving future information that cannot reasonably be assumed, plain and simple. Saying what he is would be worse, and I appreciate the warning not to look at the profiles, but giving future plot details or even hints toward future plot details is not something you should be doing in the discussion thread without the convenient spoiler button.

I have to say, that first episode was really unexpected. Knowing the gist of things, you'd normally want the first episode to grab attention. I had a bit more of a "huh" factor than a "wow" factor, though I'm hoping that they get to the start of the story next time xD

Man, the beginning is cool, the game show I mean. It's funny, I'd watch an anime like that, just about a game show like that. What's up with the raw SFW used for this ep, it looks like the aspect ratio's been change, like it's strected out. And, it's hella blurry! But, that was awesome!!! It got really intense when the camera was going in and out. This show feels very real. But, lol at lizard vamp!!! This show seems like it's gonna be great. The art is nice, would like to see a better raw though to get a better look. Looking forward to more, will probably watch this to the end...Urahara Out!!

Interesting first episode. Mina may have just easily won my heart. Didn't really like how the whole episode was mainly in game show style. Was expecting a little more. Though the ending made up for it. Very interesting can't wait for more (actually may pick up reading this )

Nude =/= "Ecchi".
Also, if that is what said person calls "shitty", well, this person sucks.
Making a big negative deal out of the naked human body is stupid.

And I mean, if showing nudity is "ecchi", then Sailor Moon is certainly ecchi given those Sailor Transformations.
Well don't get me wrong but other than pantie shots and nude...I cannot see anything else out of this anime as ecchi. Sailor Moon cannot be ecchi (saw the transformations) because they don't show any details about them maybe Japanese version.

In spoiler my anime list for now.

Overall the 1st episode was quite well done but I dont quite get the vampire bund thing at the end. Another thing that troubled me was the bouncing boobs when the "queen of vampires" stood up from her chair. I find it absolutely tastless.

Ok, I'd looked through the first chapter before, and this is nothing like it o.O I don't read the manga so you won't hear me say 'Omg it's different, you SHAFT bastards' though xP
Anyway, it wasn't as good as I'd expected.
But I heard Nakamura Yuuichi (yay), so it's good. I'm gonna keep watching, if only for him xP
Also, a bit disappointed that there was no OP.

Not having read the manga, I gotta say it was a solid first episode. Not what I was expecting with the variety show setup, I thought that was really a different and clever approach to our introduction to the world of vampires- that seems just like what a Japanese variety talk show about vampires would be like!

Also the little girl kicked a whole ton of ass.

Hm. Not the best start. The tv show was poorly executed, boobs do not bounce like that, and giant fucking lizards...

Seeing as this is SHAFT and it's a short series, I'll probably finish it. And since it's just the first episode, I'm not gonna judge it too much, it's still got potential.
Maybe I should check out the manga, though. The story itself seems okay, and I like the occasional badass vampire.

I watched the episode, and I kind of like what SHAFT did, presenting the episode like an actual TV show. When I first heard 'filler', I thought that it'd be something silly and slice-of-lifeish, but it wasn't at all bad. I haven't seen any Japanese variety shows, but I know enough about them from watching various anime. I guess this episode would be more amusing to people who live in Japan, being almost like a parody, but I can certainly appreciate the set-up. I hope the next episode will be the proper starting of the series, as this was more like a prologue.

Going with 2/5.

I don’t read the manga, but I am little disappointed with this first episode because I am expected there’s awesome action scenes in it. According to some people who read the manga, the first episode failed to follow to manga faithfully, so it was indeed an odd start. Despite these ones, it looks very promising, and I hope SHAFT throws interesting happens in the next episode.

And boobs do not bounce like that.....lol.

The execution wasnt bad at all, tho.
