I just finished the first episode and...I really like it! Love it, even! My only real gripe was when Yuuri pointed her gun at Chito over the food...which makes no sense considering they found a whole box full of rations and they're clearly seen putting it in their tank. Why fight over something they have a whole bunch of? I thought it seemed a bit unnecessary and didn't add much. But other than that, I thought it was great! Finally, an anime in recent years that hasn't made me cringe!...well, hopefully. Here's hoping it DOESN'T have panty shots or boob groping. If it does, I'm dropping it like a hot potato.

I might follow this 'till the end.

I don't like the desings of the characters, yeah, they are cute but
does not fit here. The soundrack is great and the animation of outside i love it. Sadly, the comedy is forced and ruin that moment of tension.

for the gun/ration scene, maybe the girls are traumatized by some tragic event in the past so pointing a gun would not really have scared them at all. maybe it was more like an edgy joke between the two.

I really like where this is going... "Cute girls giving thoughtful lines while doing cute things" (Or CGGTLWDCT)

The second half alone could have been an interesting short, I hope they continue to deliver scenes like that one

Pretty interesting show in summary, totally worth the try.

Wow, I'm glad I tried out this anime. It's a good one.

They are both so kawaii, I can't handle AJDHDXHD.

At first I was really shocked when that girl pointed the gun at another girl just because of a chocolate, I thought something was gonna happen, luckily it was just a joke haha.

Really like the animation as well, it's a beautiful ep.

5/5

YES! Loved it right from the get-go. It's so cute and the girls' chemistry is already feeling like I've been watching this for a while. The art is so simple (which is a pro) and it's able to distinguish itself because of it. I also really like the contrast between how easygoing and melancholic it is. The atmosphere is just like the snow; light and fluffy at first, but becomes heavier as it builds up.

If there's 11 more of these, then count this as my AOTS.

That was surprisingly great. Very atmospheric and well paced. Loved the world and the characters. Music was very fitting as well, this is going to be a great watch.


I somehow found the atmosphere to be very Christmassy =)

So this is how Metro 2033 looks like with anime girls as protagonists xD

Once Hanayo always Hanayo, I mean glutton xD
Also Kubo Yurika sounds a bit like Konata from Lucky Star

In a bleak, empty world where everyone is dead, two moe girls with wide eyes dab their way to a sense of happiness.

Chito appears to be the leader of sorts. Yuuri isn't too concerned about anything as long as she can have a nap. Though she's certainly struggling in terms of being hungry, trying to eat her own hand as she fantasizes about soup in her dreams.

The little flashbacks/dreams we saw suggest that everyone else didn't die/disappear until very recently.

"So good!" Is it? Because that soup looked kinda like motor oil. Maybe I'm spoiled from how anime food usually looks. I guess that when it's all you've got, you'll have to convince yourself motor oil soup is "so good".

I'm a little disappointed Yuuri didn't actually try eating the tank. Chito was over there like "Do it. No balls."

"War means killing one another, right? Why'd they do that?" Because humans are bad. Except for you two. You two seem too wholesome and good for this world. Unfortunately, you're not going to be able to repopulate it together, so everything's kinda screwed after you two die.

"No idea what chocolate is, though..." Okay, now I'm not entirely sure how long the world's been screwed up for. Chito and Yuuri have apparently never been alive during a time in which chocolate was a common treat.

"Don't move." Shit, Yuuri, it's not funny in this kind of situation to joke about shooting a bitch over chocolate. Chito seemed legitimately freaked out for a minute.

Nothing wrong with eating snow...as long as it's not yellow. Hey, where do these two go to the bathroom?

That's quite the moeblob fest if you ask me! Pretty interesting setting, really would love to see some backstory about these characters and this world! The pacing was surprisingly great, so really looking forwards to see what's next!

-What's the deal with the WWII aesthetic? Does anime/manga have to pander so much to the Wehrmacht otaku these days?
I'd prefer an original vehicle design instead of meticulous reproduction of nazi vehicles.

Even if she was joking, pointing a gun at her friend was pretty fucked up.

Really impressive premier episode. The atmosphere really felt like of a world that is coming to an end. The view from the tank or whatever they were riding was extremely well done. It almost felt like Girls und Panzer but the atmosphere is pretty dope.

This is how anime should be done. The first episode got me hooked.

Firstly. INORI MINASE IS ONE OF THE TWO MAIN CHARACTERS OH YES!!!

Secondly, I really love post-apocalyptic dystopia as a theme so this show should definitely be fun for me. The comedy is fun and cute despite the dreary surroundings, which give me a feeling that all that calm can evaporate in a second, like how we saw Yuu take the last ration at gunpoint.

I'm liking what I see. Amazing atmosphere and setting, and so far two pleasant characters that play off each other well.

Surprised how many people misinterpreted the gunpoint seen. It wasn't really a joke so much as a lesson.

The long, dark corridor feels so ominous, but man, I appreciate the amount of work put into the background. The rust on the pipes look so natural and damp. The sound effects made me feel immersive.
Idk about anyone else here, but the use of black, white and grey is REALLY interesting to me. Most anime are very colorful in order to give life to a scene, but in this, even if almost everything makes up of mostly grey shades, it has a colorful personality.

Seems like the girls' uniforms are WWI inspired outfits. I had to look it up myself. They look amazing and adorable!


The way they handle flashbacks is very interesting. The vehicle the drive in, how they cook and eat their food, I'm thoroughly convinced the art theme is inspired by WWI.

If I have to summarize what I just witnessed on the first episode thus far, it's like putting Lucky Star characters in post-apocalyptic Japan.

So Yuuri, the blonde haired girl, essentially robbed Chito, the black haired girl, over the last of the rations, in the guise of a soft-hearted albeit greedy half-joke. Yuuri could have split the last bar between the two, but instead opted to being selfish, which shows her true nature, not even considering that _both_ girls could split the last bar.
