THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
----------------------------------------
I think this was a neat episode with a lot of potential.

We got mostly Nanami and Yuu doing the storytelling with their characters. There's definitely some character bonding with the hands holding and talking. Yuu refers Nanami as a senpai so there's also a good amount of respect there.

The animation quality impresses me so far with the atmospheric setting and vibrant coloring. I think even the music works well so far for the show too. (even the ED theme song)

The art of the character is better than expected, was a bit worry while seeing the trailer...

...and so many view from first-person.


...a short scene after ED to create cliffhanger, will they maintain this structure in every episode?

This guy waited a WHOLE MONTH for a answer....i feel bad for the man, it seems like he took it like a champ though when he got rejected. I hope to meet this guy here, seems like a good lad.

Good start. A normal yuri for once without dumb drama.

So far everything seems good. Though I've only watched the raw version at this point, it was pleasing to look at all the vibrant colors mix together. The animation was well-done, the music was nice and fit the mood, and the character's voices fit their character nicely. Probably one of the things that stood out to me the most was the student council room, in which the wooden floor and furniture stood out quite well.

Nice first episode. Hope people don’t downrate it just because it’s yuri.

The episode was okay. But how can this senpai fall so fast in love and then immediatly confess? lol
I don't like it when characters fall in love after they've only seen each other maybe two times .____.

The first person camera movement was creepy. It felt like it belonged in a horror story.

The way the relationship was really cute and innocent.

The protagonist didn't feel anything for guys, even though she wanted to love. That made her think of herself as a strange person. Since I am gay, I can definitely relate to that feeling.

I love that this anime has a lot of guys too. Homosexuals aren't homosexuals because there aren't enough people of the opposite sex around them. We can love people of the opposite sex, but can't feel any attraction!

So far, I really like this. Please don't turn out like Citrus!!!

i'm so highly impressed with the animation. this is movie tier budget production. the 1st person view looks hella smooth and natural despite uncommonly used.

this is one of my fav shojo ai. its not your typical romance. it'll dive deep into complicated feelings. so i assure you guys it keeps getting better. btw, its more to SHOJO AI, not YURI and almost no fanservice. eventho its shojo ai, the plot is just so good. well, my opinion tho, after reading hella lots of shojo ai manga.

if it'll end at the part i think it will, i'll most probably cry. it will slowly buildup the tension for the finale. i dont think i've ever got heartbroken by a shojo ai series. yeah, the characters are solid!

dont even think of dropping midway, guys

I guess this was a good enough episode. Better than I expected for certain. Hopefully, TROYCA can manage to keep the anime consistently entertaining/engaging since the whole romance thing in the manga is quite a slow burn.

That was a decent start, with solid character introduction. Also, did I really liked certain directional choices, mostly concerning Yuu's inner monologues. - looks promising

Obviously, is their room for improvement, but I'm overall satisfied with the current outlook.

Oh boy, I think I'll love this one. For some reason I feel really attached to Koito, I think she might be the closest thing of how relatable a character is to me.

The animation felt great, and everything look smooth, I really hope it doesn't disappoint.

A pretty good first episode. Everything is on point. As a fan of the manga, I cannot be any happier.

I loved the direction of this episode. The first-person shots were a new experience for me, but I liked them. The music also worked perfectly.


Excited for more. 5/5

Why didn't the netsuzou trap manga (which is better than this and citrus) get this treatment :/

The episode was decent i guess but the "feelings" were pretty rushed
The girls aren't that good looking too
You like air,angels beats,clannad,little busters,charlotte..?then WATCH "KANON 2006" which is better

Decent first episode.

First person shots felt a bit odd. Interesting idea but character/camera movement was too unnatural so it was a bit distracting. Otherwise animation was good. I really liked the color palette and how they used it to create different atmospheres.

I must say that their uniforms are quite unique. Very interesting design. Both girl leads are cute. I think that's the most important thing in a yuri anime lol. Well, that and good romance/storytelling (I'm looking at you Citrus).

I hope this will remain as good next week.

This only looks beautiful. Everything else is too meh. Instead of showing how it looks with such a boring metaphor, I would prefer a distancing sound while slowly pulling away to show how distanced she feels from everyone. It feels like all that effort was placed in the wrong moments. 6/10 for now.

Really great first episode. The characters already have an interesting vibe and charm to them, especially Nanami, and the animation looked great.

Hopefully, we truly get a good yuri anime this time, since this has potential to be something special.

Finally!!
This first episode was very beautiful, the character design, the atmosphere, the music and the narrative, TROYCA, I take my hat off and I congratulate you for the incredible work you did in this adaptation.
Since they announced this adaptation I look forward to it and I'm not disappointed, Yuu and Touko look amazing, Yuu makes you want to hug her as how adorable she looks and Touko, WOW that scene with the introduction of her in front of the student council was beautiful, well she is beautiful, they also present Sayaka and I loved her design, especially her voice.
The art looks amazing, the color palette is spectacular as how everything flows naturally, I loved the narrative, I liked the narrations from the perspective of Yuu, it was quite solid the way in which her feelings were narrated.
Being honest, the Voice actress who worked on this anime have made the voices of several of my favorite female characters, so I will really enjoy this anime.
Anyway, 10/10 for this first episode and I'll keep thinking like that, because the original material is very good and TROYCA already showed that it has a very good team of porduccion and quality staff.

The first episode was quite enjoyable, tho I didn't quite get Yuu's character until mid episode.
The animation seemed nice, and the characters were rather interesting, I enjoyed how Nanami suddenly changed in that moment, I wasn't quite expecting it to happen so soon. This said, Yuu's reaction was amazing, I like that almost 3rd person insight in what is happening, really makes the show more enjoyable.

Just an FYI: This was the third most requested series to recieve an anime adaptation at AnimeJapan so lol...no pressure hehe

Only one complaint...which is a worry I've had since the trailers dropped...the backgrounds' lighting is horrible for most of it...way too bright...makes some scenes hard to look at. It also gets in the way of the animation (Hell... They even didn't use an obviously looking CG crowd wow...still using excessively bright light to allow yourself to get lazy with backgrounds is nothing praiseworthy)
Cool with everything else...hopefully the story and characters can "outshine" the problems with the lighting
Come on TROYCA can nail lighting..They did a spectacular job with re:creators (maybe it's budget issues? IDK)

Looks like I'm complaining excessively over one thing (it matters to me) but besides that I really enjoyed the episode...the characters in particular
Also the art looks way better in motion than I expected from the trailers
(yet to read the manga so idk if they nailed it...besides the lighting of course)

She started to fall in love really fast, but i guess that's standard fare with yuri. I really liked it though, it has a good feel to it. The animation is nice too, i love the colours.
Without love, it cannot be seen.

I am so very happy with this adaptation! The animation is beautiful and the music is great! Oh and the VAs. My god, they are perfect.

I can understand why some people might feel it's weird how nanami "falls in love" with yuu too quickly, but you should stick around because the feeling of the characters are explored quite in depth and make for some really cool story.

Great start, imo better than Citrus. Visually it looks really great and fits the anime well.

Poor guy waited a month for an answer, honestly that would kill me if that happened to me.

Going through my anime list, I think Bloom Into You is my first experience of watching a Yuri anime and my impressions from the first episode is very positive.

TROYCA has done a nice job with the art style and animation as a whole, although the first-person point of view shots, good as they may be, will take a bit og getting used to.

The characters so far have been interesting. The poor guy who confessed to Yuu must've the patience of a god to wait one month for her reply to him and although he got rejected, he took the answer really well, which was nice. =)

Nanami's a pretty confident character with her role on the student council, so I expect more dynamic and engaging scenes between her and Yuu as the show goes on. Good start. =D

I haven't watched the episode yet but can some one answer me this:

1: is this yuri one where we have the main ship growing slowly but whitout over melodramatic shit?
2: Or is kind of like citrus where you have love triangles, rectangles and all that bull crap?

Tell me is option 1 'cause citrus left me almost hating the yuri that i used to love, because of all of that cheap melodrama with new girls entering left and right destroying any advance for the main ship.

I would say totally first. I don't need to spoil anything but MC relationship is EXTREMELY well done, and I love it. Nothing is forced, there's no "cheap" drama or drama overall, and specially, NO love triangle or harem stuff.
Also this is not Yuri, this is Shoujo ai, they don't do lewd stuffs, unless you count as hand holding lewd.

It's pretty much the first. There are quite few number of characters that will get introduced later on for sure, but they aren't too relevant to the actual relationship aside from one person and even then the person doesn't play any big role.
