THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
----------------------------------------
This was adorable. Even the opening song has a charming tune to it.

The main female cast consists of girls with some fox features (ears, tails, etc). Yuzu is cute although really shy. The setting has a nice feel to with the Spring flowers and blooming weather. The other characters are fun to watch too with Natsume, Kiri, and Satsuki. Seems all these girls have some distinctive personality.

I like Satsuki the best so far. Good start. There's some slight fan service with the onsen but nothing really distracting. I'm also kinda impressed by their usage of music that makes the series flow smoothly.

This was exactly what i expected it would be a nice and calming anime.
Seems like an interesting bunch of girls even tho they didn't get that much introduction but we will be seeing more of them so that doesn't matter right now.
It seems Yuzu got to go with the most strict girl for now tho she also got a chance with the girl who seemed most easygoing, both of them had their good parts.
Satsuki needs to learn to take things a little bit more easy tho.

Well that was quite lovely

Basically Hanasaku Iroha except with moe fox girls instead, and supposedly lesbian ones at that (?)

Pretty nice

That was beautiful.

Exactly how i envisioned the show, atmospheric, cute and melancholy is also in the mix.

The girls obviously are cute, have their own quirks and are charming.

My AOTS so far.

That was absolutely beautiful and adorable.

Love the girls, they're all really cute and I love their designs. The overall atmosphere is really relaxing and sweet.

Some really charming scenes and moments. My favorites were the star knocking down, the farewell to that traveler and of course the sakura blossom scene,

Looks like we're gonna get our fair share of bath scenes. XDD

Not sure how the Shoujo-ai tag is gonna play into this, but I'm looking forward to it.
I love the moments when Chizu and Satsuki blush. <3
Looking forward to more.

Was half worried going into this cos the certain Winter season show that looks extremely similar to this(at first sight) was boring, felt a bit livelier than that I'd say

Didn't like Satsuki, I never like those kinds of characters, she may ruin the show for me. Shite acting too

Doesn't look as classy as the best SOLs but could last me a season, let's see.

This was great and super adorable. The characters aren't revolutionary, but Yuzu is super cute and I really enjoyed everything. The setting is nice and I'm looking forward to watching this every week.
I was a little worried about the fanservice, but it wasn't really annoying or over the top, it's okay and I really don't mind it so far.
Other than that it's just really calming so I definitely want more. :)

This is what stood out the most to me, honestly. The show was extremely adorable and I like most the cast. It's fairly predictable what's going to happen, but not in a bad way. But most of all, the soundtrack just fit every scene so damn perfectly! Hajime Kikuchi and everyone else involved did a great job at that. It's winning my "best music" award for Fall 2018 thus far. Opening (also form Hajime Kikuchi in the form of eufonius) and ending themes were also great.

Well that was a pleasant surprise. My only complaint is that it felt like it went through so many ideas very quickly. I could see entire episodes dedicated to Yuzu spending time with Sakura or being around that first guest. Instead it did all these things in one episode. Going forward I hope the pace slows down to match the mood the show gives off.

it kind of reminded me of past season's centaur worries, atleast pacing-wise. like it had some ideas but they all flowed really fast.

i'll be following to see how it develops, hoping it gets more interesting than just cute girls doing cute things.

This is giving off Spirited Away and Natsume Yuujinchou vibes (and one of the characters' name is Natsume) since it's like they're working at a bath house and it's heartwarming. Hihi.

My shoujo-ai senses are tingling already. Omg. Satsuki x Yuzu. <3

Omfg. Sakura is the cutest. I can't even. I literally screamed when she appeared. Waaaaaaah!

Already loved this anime and that animation, maaan. :)

Yes! I thought I was the only one who thought at first look it's like Centaur no Nayami.

Sakura is more expected cute though, Kuzu is kinda too, but her personality was a little less expected

While it feels like it pulls elements I have seen in other shows, I like the way they pull them all together.

Well, that was calming.

To be honest, before this started airing, I didn't know what to expect because I thought that instead of being a calming slice of Life, it was going to be filled with fan service featuring neko-lolis... I am glad that that isn't the case, kinda sorta. There is a bit of fanservice but the overall vibe of the anime is pretty great.

The OP calmed me down pretty quickly and the characters are very cute. I think I'll enjoy this.

eufonius op, what a nostalgia bomb...
brings me back to when i first watched Clannad and Kashimashi.

Very calm and absolutely adorable . . . to think that this is going to be yuri, what a dream come true!

This is largely as i'd expected and hoped it might be, and that's great. Nothing beats the feelgoods.
This season is going to be so great QQ

Lol, i figured people would dive on the saber look-alike.

Nope. There was some scandal with its main composer/keybordist so people though the group will disband (in result he left the group for 2012-2013 but returned later). The things calmed down now.

From PV, I did not know how sweet and fun this anime series was, which surprise was this first episode. I'm already in love with it.
The protagonist Yuzu is too nice, but the rest of the cast is interesting.
The backgrounds are fabulous, I can not wait for the second episode to arrive. :D

Sweet lord this is going to be amazing. This is one of those anime that I enjoy watching it so damn much I get giddy and excited for the entirety of the episode. The sheer level of kawaii is through the roof!

Sakura's voice is ultra adorable and Yuzu's voice is cute, too, and from a fresh seiyuu who did Jun from Tenshi no 3P last season!

This one surprised me. I wasn't expecting it to be as good as it was. The setting is a big draw for me right now. The town and bath house feel lived in. The city was bustling with people (and not CG people which is awesome), and there were some cool details like the worker mice who run through people's legs while carrying stuff (also a fun comedic moment).

The quickest way to endear me to a character is to give them a series of doofy facial expressions, and this episode had those in spades between Yuno and Sakura. All of the characters were charming and adorable. Yuno and Satsuki look to have a solid amount to work with in giving the show some substance thanks to the bits of information we get about each (Yuno's alluded backstory and Kiri seems to be purposefully pairing Satsuki with Yuna for some reason).

Finally, the atmosphere is great. It's relaxing without being unfittingly sappy, with very pretty visuals and a good soundtrack. The bath scenes thankfully don't feel pandering, with no detailed shots, or pervy angles. Just the characters blushing a bit, which feels reasonable. There is an undercurrent of Shoujo-Ai, and that is listed as a genre, but so far it doesn't feel distracting or unnatural. This one will probably fill the spot that Restaurant to Another World had last season as my comfy show.

Overall, this is great. It's definitely a bit too fast paced in my opinion, but its setting, characters, and comfy atmosphere all drew me in and kept me charmed. I'm looking forward to more.

4/5

THIS WAS SO CUTE.

I found it very charming, and I loved the calm atmosphere. All of the characters are adorable. Could Yuzu and Sakura be anymore kawaii?

Looking forward to the next ep. Probs my fave thing I've started watching so far :')

waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa this was just too cute >.<

Exactly what i was expecting, i was waiting for this anime since it looked so cute and cozy.

Calm and comforting.




in terms of "story telling", even thou having into account that it's a SOL anime, i kinda felt it was a little bit too much out of place: in the sense that it all kinda happened too fast, like how she got there and how she met the other characters and they're already sleeping together hahaha.
I wished it was a little bit more consistent and 'linear'

Still, 4/5 for me.

That was incredibly cute and highly enjoyable, oh my god! I couldn't have enough of it! Probably my favorite of the season so far.

OST is pretty damn great too. Lovely OP and ED next to that. eufonius sure brings back nostalgia.

Gonna look forward to this every week for sure!
