Oh man. I got chills on this episode when when the MC transforms into gridman. It gaved me old school ultraman vibe.

But it feels like its not trigger who did this. Like someone hijacked the studio. Still awesome first episode. Rikka & Akane are waifu material.

I don't know about anyone else, but this felt more like Evangelion than anything. Looks like Ultraman though. This was very fun to watch.

The animation and character design are good but this is to be expected from a Trigger anime (I meant this in a good way I swear)

Even though I can feel Trigger in this work it still don't feel good enough if that makes sense, compared to kill la kill this doesn't give the feeling of Trigger enough for some reason but I'm sure it's gonna get better soon

I dissapointed with this anime because the fight scene it just feel boring and the rythm is slow as hell and the characters is bland as fuck. I absolutely dropping this anime.

The most unfinished product I have seen come out of Studio Trigger. And that is saying something.

How was it unfinished?
Don't bother if you don't know how special effects were done without computers.

45 second long still shot, series of still shots, series of animation cuts that look like they are stock footage, off model characters in the first episode- character turns to side at one particularly bad moment and their face was almost completely flat like a pug. stuttering walking/running sequences.

More animation avoidance than Evangelion. XD

The mecha design and the monster battle were good, but, really, there was pretty much nothing else in this first episode. It was a pretty tough sit until then. It can be good when they put it out on blu-ray and animate more sequences but yeah, it was pretty hard to ignore for me. The character designs also felt like they needed more polish, if only with better coloring.

Already like this more than Darling in the FranXX. Probably because I didn't really like the aspect of Klaxosaurs, what I want is monsters like the Kaiju we saw in this first episode. This is right up my alley.

Welp, this and Goblin Slayer are the only two shows from this season I currently plan to watch. Goblin Slayer's first episode pleased me with greater raw, visceral enjoyment, but there's more intrigue here. Not the most engaging first episode, but I want to know where this is going.

Despite having numerous Trigger anime on my PTW for literally years, this is actually, I think, my first experience with a Trigger anime, too, so... FINGERS CROSSED

It's great to hear Greg Ayres again, too; haven't heard his voice in an anime in quite some time.

P.S. Rikka is just an ordinary anime girl; why she is so waifu for everyone else eludes me.

damn she got told.

but honestly this was a horrible first episode. the voice acting was annoying as their tones didn't fit the atmosphere very well or align with the shot. the banter was very awkward and unnecessary and ruined the details being given to the plot. it had a big problem of building things up. it would jump right into scenes with dialogue that feels off with bland characters. the shot angles were fucking awful. it was either too far away and when you thought, they needed to be closer to view during the conversation, it jumped right into their faces and didn't look well at all. use the medium where it shows the body and surrounding environment way more because that's usually the best way of presenting animation. but to sum it all up, it went WEIRD, UNPOLISHED, and CONFUSINGLY BAD. it quickly dived right into things and when it came time to build the scene, the talking and visuals didn't help at all.

Last time I trusted Trigger I had got an DitF treatment. One would certainly think that I got my lesson learned but well, here I am again.

This was quite okay. I am not a big fan of sentai works. Nonetheless I really liked Godzilla so I can appreciate a good kaiju once in a while.

Pretty good episode. I liked slow, non-eventful beginining. Not everything needs to go fast as lightning. We surely gonna get a dose of insanity in the next episodes.

I had forgotten Gridman was using the virtual/electronic world's idea.

Well, well, well... the characters will probably be uninteresting but this will certainly be fun to watch, being made by people who grew up eating tokusatsu. Too bad they used 3DCGI figures as stuntmen on a scene you can't stop comparing to fully drawn older series.
Was this fight based on some Ultraman sequence ? (unless it was for Evangelion? it reminded me of the Sachiel fight in EVA plus we got a ceiling shot)

3/5 What a weird eyes design.


@YizelTro Why would this be a joke? This is an animated "follow-up" to a TVshow who was mimicking Ultraman, so...

First Mecha-Related Anime that I watched since like 10 years. Plot is a direct reflection of every japanese fighting shows (Like the expected Ultraman), so it feels familiar to me, since all these shows have been part of my childhood. Looking forward to watching this over time.

i was literally surprised caause i didnt even expect it to be similar like ultraman. so at the first episode i couldn't really take things seriously. but in the later episode im starting to like this. it's pretty entertaining actually.

It was amazing how well it managed to thrust me into Yuta's perspective by opening to him with amnesia :0 They made the whole world feel so mundane with a hint of something wrong that I got really excited when the kaiju started wrecking shit, even though I knew that was coming xD

Well, this was an intriguing start!

Other than the odd animation/art from here and there and the CGI battle, it was a quality episode. Personally, I enjoyed the first half a lot more as the buildup and the mysterious vibe was on point. Occasional comedy and effects, such as the hang up in animation when the sausage fell off Shinjou’s hand, were a nice company to have. Rikka’s character design is appealing to say the least and a few shots from the episode were really cool. Yuuta’s character design seems a little unique too so that’s also nice.
Op for the show, that played at the end of the episode, was great! Action choreography was so-so but it was engaging enough to keep me interested. Sort of felt like it was a typical superhero show considering the way Rikka and Utsumi we’re helping him out and particularly how he managed to gain power as soon as he realised that. It’s sort of a nice touch for now, but I hope Studio Trigger doesn’t overdo it. Damn, that cliffhanger though. The main cast’s expressions just summed up the whole story, really. Lol, could they all have been hallucinating? Is the Girl that was shown for a second there before the fireball struck dead?

All in all, a very engaging and eventful first episode. I’ll watch the remaining five, as of now that are out, before Sunday and catch up. It’ll be nice to watch this weekly, I reckon.

Yeah, it really was a great buildup and some excellent direction!

Curious first episode. I think it was just ok. It was interesting but nothing else. Honestly, the first ep. of Darling in the Fraxx got me more entertained. Besides, since the moment Yuta "awakes" Gridman, the dialogs felt kind of lacking and awkward at some point as well.

So... in the end all the damage was reset or something like that... so I assume that all the dead people, because there must be some dead people, were... "reset" as well? Kind of curious about that too.

Overall, it was an ok episode as I said. Personally, I didn't mind about the CGI and since the show where this anime is based of, had real people "fighting" in costumes... I think the CGI adds some special charm to it.

P.S.: I don't know what happened during that talk between Rikka and Yuta I mean, they literally were using poorly drawn key-frames. I remember something like that happening in Kill la Kill but it was made with humorous porpuses so I don't really know what the idea was here.

P.S. 2:Rikka, that skirt is hella short! I really like Rikka's eyes, by the way.

I don't know what it is but I love trigger first episodes, they always feel so energetic, full of life, and gets you ready to explore a cool new world.

Also I kinda got Valvrave vibes somewhat.

i'm not really into toku, but i watch few of it.

I can say this has potential, i enjoyed it so far. The OP and ED are good, so the BGM on battle it really suits the animation.

well, most of all is the nostalgic feeling of toku itself is good nice job trigger.

Show looks good, and man for some reason the eyes on these characters look really nice imo, the design for them is pretty good

While I never seen the original Gridman myself, I am pretty sure that this episode gave a lot of people a whole lot of nostalgia to the original! At start it does seem to be a nice mix between the slice of life and the actual tokusatsu part which Gridman is known for.

SO I really do wonder what kind of story this will have to offer, but I sure like it already! Might even catch the original tokusatsu series up after this!

That was one horrifying mess of CGI, I really like the feel of the 2D animation, it speaks a lot about its potential as a drama slice of life, and it also got some FLCL vibes to it. Count me in, coach.
I can already see a waifu war in here, at least between these two girls, although, I still don't see anything pointing at the T H I C S everybody was talking about.
