THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
----------------------------------------
First episode preaired today.

It's a pretty neat start considering the way they introduced the world fiction content and some character building already. We meet Naofumi whose life changes drastically after being summoned as a hero. Might have to get used to his voice but it definitely suits him as a protagonist. The part about the shield plays a major part to his character gimmick. Some of the other heroes gets some cameos but we'll find out more about them soon.

So he gets asked to save the world so no doubt this story will also focus a lot on that. Really has a lot of potential tbh. Animation quality also looks solid on most parts so I hope they can keep that level of consistency.

There're someone uploaded episode 1 on youtube, but he also speak Russian (I guess?) in the video too. So it's kinda annoy to watch but still manage to.

I must say that I'm impressed with the quality in this episode and hope that it will be this good till the end though.

I just watched the pre-air that was just on AbemaTV (apparently ep 1 - approx 45 mins) though I wasn't able to catch the first 5 mins or so since I started late.

I quite liked it - so far very good quality as mentioned before, and I really like the fact that the music in that 2nd PV was also used in the actual show as well (although used slightly differently).

Voice acting seemed pretty good - at least I can't think of anything negative, everything seemed on point.

That 45min period got up to the part where he first sees Raphitalia, so so far the show has been fairly slow-paced(?), its definitely not rushing/skipping anything but then again this is the intro/opening episode, so we'll have to see whether it keeps the same pace.

Looking forward to the official start (which should be 2hours?), but that's basically 2 weeks away so cannot wait!

What do you mean by this? If you're talking about the official starting ep 1 in the next 2 weeks, it's a double-length ep, so basically the same pre-air ep 1 that you just watched.

EDIT: If you're talking about it taking up 2-hour timeslot, I'm guessing the rest of it will be a special with the cast or something else.

Ah, you're right - the two hour special only seems to apply to AT-X, which will most likely mean that its an extra hour of additional stuff like cast related stuff. Damn, that means effectively a three week wait!

Pre-air is out already. I already expected great things from Kinema Citrus but I was still blown away nonetheless. Pacing felt great. Soundtrack, animation and direction were solid. Orange balloon memes looked badass. They spent a bit more time on this part of the story than I expected, which is a good thing. Fingers crossed for consistency.

Myne that bitch



The others were scummy as well.

Pretty promising start. I'm afraid that I'm hoping for too much, but this seems at least decent compared to other isekais.
Kokoro did nothing wrong.

Pretty good first episode and adaptation , Ishikawa Kaito Is doing a very good work as Naofumi. Animation was good and OST was phenomenal. Looking forward to see the next episode in 2019.

This is one of the few anime that's able to make me hate most of its characters (not because of bad quality, but personality) on first episode. So far so good and i hope it'll maintain it till the end. Might read the manga.

Well yeah, that woman is totally a bitch I want to see dead, well more like almost everyone. I really like how Naofumi is like a bad guy or anti-hero in the this series, something fresh for an Isekai IMO. BTW, who is the person that was watching the 'hearing' in the shadows? Could it be an ally or an enemy? The wait for the continuation it's gonna kill me, but I'll be patient.

Just watched it, and having read the LN, it surprised me how it is an almost word for word adaptation, pretty neat. I really liked the animation, seiyuus and ost so far, and they have 24 eps for this plus the first one was great so I wont worry that they'll rush things for now, pacing was perfect.
I wasnt convinced with Ishikawa Kaito in the role of Naofumi, always imagined him with a more raspy/low or monotonous voice (like Takuya Eguchi with 8man) but he's pretty good and I see myself getting used to it in a couple eps.
Really promising so far, worth the wait since that PV back in 2017

I'm surprised that Kinema Circus is taking their sweet time on the pacing, which isn't a bad thing at all. In fact, I welcome it and appreciate how the episode isn't just skimming over stuff. The animation is well done. The variety of color schemes and music complement each other to establish a convincing atmosphere.

With the pacing the first episode took, I'm guessing that Raphy's little arc will take 2 episodes.

That was a good adaptation for the first episode, im impresed, but I didn't expected to see Raphtalia this episode.

The best part is the OST.

Finally, this is one of the best anime of the season already for me if they dont fill it with too much fanservice cuz its another isekai. Manga and novel didnt have that so i hope the studio isnt gonna ruin it.

Just finished 1st ep RAW courtesy of Japan's VIP screening on the streaming platforms like Niconico, Hikari TV, dTV.

And it's good, really. Above average.

Whether it'll be a big thing or not I think it'll easily get minimum of 8.0/10 here on MAL. Sure, it has a solid source material, but still, not every adaptations of even the greatest materials were good & successful. And this one is def. not disappointing, from the pilot at least.

That's hardly an excuse when there are more than enough chapters in the manga adaptation to do some background research and make a more informed judgment.

I usually hate substanceless "another fantasy world"s, but here we do get the substance, and while it is not all that profound, it exists. So I at least don't trigger myself. AND then there is that plot about shield being useless (as seen by the bonjins) and the Hero starting from zero, ostracized by society. And quite cute fox raccoon girls or something. And there is also a female waiting for a big smack. Quite something to look forward.
Oh and please stop letting (or at least uploading) subtitles from NOT literate enough primates. It... pains me deeply.

Well that was rage enducing. But I gotta say I'm happy about the personality flip it made our protagonist go through, at first I wasn't really into any of the characters, but now I feel like at least the shield hero has my interest. I feel like the series has a potential (plus with all that hype behind it) to be better than average isekai. Hope we'll also get a good you played yourself moment for the girl, and the spear hero too at least.

I'm guessing this is following the LN because a lot of the events of this episode happened a bit differently in the manga (Which isn't a bad thing imo), like that scene where they were comparing Japans....Did not know that the heroes were all from alternate universes

But yeah, the anime did a good job making me remember why and how much I despise that bitch, the other heroes and this entire kingdom (Save for the armory store guy). I wanted them all to die then and I still do now.

The way Shield Bro handled everything post being accused is interesting since he didn't exactly react as angrily as he did in the manga, but I like it nonetheless. Plus his attitude afterwards is pretty much the same as I remembered, so its all good

Not sure how I feel about the colour scheme they went with yet but animation and art wise it's pretty decent and the music is very nice too (Looking forward to seeing and hearing both the OP and ED when the anime officially starts airing)

All in all, they managed to pack a lot of information in this first episode, so based off of what I remember of the manga, adaptation wise this was pretty solid, so I can't wait to see more of Shield Bro and Raph's adventures

P.S. I'm definitely watching this episode again, because the subs were kinda bad lol....Pretty sure Shield Bro and Lance-cunt are 20 and 21 respectively

Well, I enjoyed this first episode more than I expected. I think Ishikawa did a pretty good job as Naofumi. I lol'd at the SAO reference from Matusoka's character. Anyway, we got to see Naofumi getting betrayed by the bitch and was falsely charged for rape something that isolated him from the rest of society. At least we got best girl's debut at the end. Kinda hilarious that both seiyuus were also the leads in Seishun Buta Yarou wa Bunny Girl Senpai no Yume wo Minai from last season.

Only temporary. He will just rub himself off that fur and warm up to everyone even thought hey call him a certain bill. It always happens this way.

Yea, I know, he'll eventually warm up like any other initially hardened character in most shows I've watched in the past.
I just thought the setup for his character was obvious but pretty well-done.
