THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
----------------------------------------
The dubs are shit IMO compared to B:The Beginning. They leave "Kun" and "San" in the dub voices and then omit them from the subs... Ide.

Pretty boring episode tbh. I can't say I was hooked into it by the first episode. At first, shit was going down but then it turned into a SOL for the entire episode.

There's just something that irks me about hearing things like -san said in the dubs. Especially when they aren't even doing it if you switch to the subs. Overall the dubs were a pretty big letdown so I'll be continuing this one subbed.

The episode itself was fine, it wasn't stellar but it was enough to keep me interested in what will happen next hopefully it picks up from here.

I have watched the first two episodes and it's a lot better than B: The Beginning. First Bones anime that I like in a very long time.

Neat first episode.

The Female lead was more of the main focus here while the Male lead was more aimed as a mystery man, intresting.
The animation is very solid and the sound doesn't fall apart as well, I like Aiko voice actress.

That roof place they were talking on, I pretty sure it was influenced by a place in Osaka, reminded me some good memories.

4/5 I expect enjoyment out of it.
Idk why are you reading this or why tf am I writing this but I already did so whatever.

Think that I’ll watch this in Japanese since unlike B the Beginning the Japanese version of this is actually bearable, also the dub for this sucks.

Looks like I’ll be sticking with the sub for this one. The actors sound so bored in the dub. Kind of interesting show so far. The beginning was exciting with the red matter chasing down people (on roller skates?), but after that it was fairly tame.

A lot of info was thrown at us, but with only half an explanation. Unlike B: The Beginning, it’s very clear where this one’s going. Which is fine, I hope the pace picks up and it becomes more engaging.

They're some interesting ideas here. The matter in particular and how it's formed it pretty interesting. I wonder how it's gonna connect back to the mysterious male MC and the Female MC. Animation is bones quality. Character animations are especially good. I usually like to watch dubs whenever it's avaliable but, Jesus this dub is awful. Poor acting and they leave kun and San in it which isn't even present in the SUBS. Overall, pretty good episode 4/5

The first episode was quite a teaser, so many questions. We're lucky we get the whole series in one go. Perhaps that advantage was used by the producers instead of rushing with too much exposition in the beginning.

Surprised at the level of difference between B's dub which was amazing and far better than it's sub version to this dub which sounds like absolute garbage.

The episode was okay, could’ve been better. This might just be second anime which I couldn’t tolerate the dub.

Has promise but, the dub is horrendous, some of the worst voice acting I've heard in years. I'm hoping there is a miracle of sorts and a small improvement in quality as the series progresses. Kinda of like how when I played Arc Rise Fantasia years back and that dub went from hot garbage to just garbage by the end. If not, sub it is.

i'm quite the opposite, i liked the Tachibana scenes and didnt really like the "matter" scenes much lol i mean wth is even that matter thing

also, we know her body recovers and stuff, but randomly cutting her face like that is a bit too much :v

i kinda like the ending song, very calm and cute

A car chase without engine roar is wrong on so may levels, it sounds almost like a crime against every engine that was destroyed in any car chase in history of anime/cinematography.

Yeah, it's so weird that they used them when even the subs didn't. Really sucks that they didn't get one of the premiere dub studios for this, like the other Netflix licensed shows have gotten, since I'm quite partial to Bones shows.

Pretty decent start to the show.

Oh, wow, the English dub was awful. As expected actually, since it's a new recording studio & the VAs are all amateurs.

Yeah we are not off to a good start, the episode itself while not particularly bad was just chock full of cliches and red flags, the biggest being the protaognist's who's personality feels both like it prime for manipulative drama to pander to the viewer but the more problematic thing of her reactions to everything in the episode felt like there was a disconnect in how she should be reacting. I highly suspect she will die at the end of this in some grandiose sad scene and I just won't care.

another big red flag though for me was that opening scene, ironically the part people liked from what ive seen, cause the characters were annoying as shit in just that small bit which doesn't bode well for the overall show's character interactions.

To the shows credit, i must give praise for the character designs having a relatively high level of shading in them aty least by anime standards, theres alot of detail in their hair and shadows that hit them which does look good, i dont like the designs themselves though they look souless. The movement on the matter though was phenomenal, both in detail but in fluidity so i hope the show has more of that.


I'm still on the side of expecting this to be awful, i pray im wrong but i doubt this will get more than a 4 from me.

LOL THE DUBS FOR THIS ARE SO BAD. I WAS LAUGHING.

But then it got old kinda fast haha...

Even so, I don't think good voice acting would save this series xD It's kind of all over the place and cliche. Also, gotta love shooting large guns while on roller skates (?). Imagine the kickback!

I have no hope for this series.

this was some of the worst english voice acting ive ever heard.
thankfully thats not a problem with the original audio so its not a big deal.

still tho its hard to believe this is a bones production. the backrounds are ok but the animation and character designs are more akin to a studio like lidenfilms, by which i mean bottom of the barrel. the direction is standart uninspired shlock and the dialoge is pure garbage.
Objectivity in art doesnt exist.

Had to switch to the Japanese half way through. Normally I have a high tolerance for bad Dubs(80s and 90s) there is no excuse for a dub to be this bad in 2018.

I really don't like hating on dubs, but what the fuck was that.

*The anime itself is good though.
Help the industry and buy Blu-rays and DVD's.
Noragami is the best anime ever.

Wow! This show looks promising!
and just take a look at the visuals especially the character animation, definitely NOT CG but the movements are perfect!
so the plot is still messed-up can't say anything for now...
btw i'm marathoning the whole 12 eps.
5/5.

The beginning gave me heavy Akira vibes with that raging organic matter.

A delivery to a house, that is untenanted. Totally unsuspicious.

I like the character design, art and Aiko's character.

Overall, a good start. Better than this clusterfuck B: The Beginning. As for the Dub, I'm watching it in German and it's better than the awkward Dub of B.

Pretty good animation during action parts & dressing. Cool googey monster reminds of the 80's OVAs.
MC kinda reminds of Sagara of FMP. Hair designs nice but the rest just usual.
A fair amount of HS cliches but bearable so far.

Not too shabby for the first episode, looks beautiful again and the difference between the past and the now is quite impressive, especially with those ending shots! Looking forwards to see what this anime has to offer!

- Oh no, another sci fi with teenagers saving the humanity...
- Why are they shooting at the 'matter' even though it's not doing anything?
- Oh no, another transfer student...
- Oh no, more fanservice...
- CGI car chase
- So now she's able to walk? Well... that was some fast recovery.
- The girl is probably 'the chosen one'...

Does Netflix know how to produce a show that isn't crap?

EDIT: Now I remembered they produced Devilman which at least wasn't shit.
