"The individual has always had to struggle to keep from being overwhelmed by the tribe. If you try it, you will be lonely often, and sometimes frightened. But no price is too high to pay for the privilege of owning yourself."
Like most people here, I was extremely surprised by the sudden turn of more "mature" comedy. I was really thinking this would just be a purely cute anime about a girl and a bear. The "Sexual harassment!" engrish comment made me laugh out loud (for real), as did the "don't touch me!". Then when the kid was imagining Machi and Natsu XD, and of course the final comment from Natsu. Great introduction episode. Hioka Natsumi is doing a great job in her first major role.
I knew going in that this wasn't going to be a kids show, but the bestially still caught me by surprise. But I got over it quickly. Overall I liked the episode. My favorite parts were when they centered around the little kids, they were gold. Especially the little girl. SEXUAL HARASSMENT! DON'T TOUCH ME!
Decided to watch this on a whim and what a pleasant surprise this was! The bestiality jokes were surprisingly funny. Hopefully they won't get run into the ground before the end of the show. And the ED was adorable holy shit
I was sooooo looking forward to this one when I saw shrine and bear God in the summary. Thought it would be kinda slice of life anime which makes you feel peaceful at heart *Think Natsume Yuujinchou, Gingitsune, Inari Kon Kon*. TOTAL REVERSAL!!! Great start though. Can't wait for next episode XD
The portrayal of the kids are surprisingly... realistic (IMO at least). I mean, real-life kids these days have at least understand the concept of sex, unlike kids in most other anime tend to be the purest, most innocent creature possible.
This was a really good episode. I'm glad I decided this would be one of the 10 full length series I'll be watching initially this season. The "Sexual Harassment" really caught me off guard and it was brilliant. Also, love the ED and anyone else think the style used for the ED would make for a beautiful game?
