THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
----------------------------------------
It's out on Netflix Japan.

Pretty interesting premiere with the amount of character emotions in this so far. Not to mention, I like the way the characters debuted in particular Tuesday. What's also interesting is some of the journal entries in this show.

Carole and Tuesday are two characters that has a decent amount of character chemistry already just in this first episode. (nice brofist). That ED theme is catchy and charming. "Pick up to dance, pick up again"~

This show is basically the GOAT, the best opening i've ever heard and extremely nice animation with beautiful character chemistry and emotional like only itslef can be. This is Instant AOTY, Instant Classic.

Not really a fan of how unnatural it feels when the music starts playing cause on top of the obvious switch between voice actors and singers you can feel the sound's not coming from the character's environment but rather a studio and it just breaks the immersion for me.
Kinda disappointed on that front cause it seemed like they were taking that aspect of the sound design into account (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hzxqk2dVvf4) but I guess not? Hope that won't be much of recurring issue and the story and character writing can carry it moving forward.
Direction was mostly okay. Love some of the establishing shots showing the world's technology along with the character intros.

The girls featured in the anime trying their best to reaching their dreams, even Angela, which is interesting (thought she was just purely snobby, but she is trying to change from child actress to idol). The most interesting and unexpected character was HiroC's character (Tao), who was emotionless.

The main two somehow clicked on and finished a song. With them putting their photos online, I fear that Tuesday's family would see it and went to them and get her...

Miyu-Miyu's character still hasn't appeared yet.

Both OP (even though it didn't air in first ep., short PV is available) and ED have different style and I like both.

Wow, that was ok, I guess.

First, the animation is amazing. I love it.

I'm afraid that with the romance tag the show will become a stupid yuri. Please, stay as friends.

I'm really digging the art and music. Was the singing done by the same voice actors? They're very good :]

Edit: Nvm, English singers but very good nonetheless

eh, didn't expect it to be so dramatized. really not my kind of thing

rich girl running away cuz her family is overprotective and doesn't understand her and fugitive girl facing the hardships of customer service gather together to perform and be famous and shit. oh, and also romance, i assume? dunno how that works out in a professional environment, but ok...

sci-fi first tag really is unneeded, it's misleading

Funded by Netflix, produced by Bones.

Insane production quality of first episode, refreshing yet detailed world building, intriguing plot, and interesting + multidimensional characters.
All of this on top of profesional singers doing the music, with non generic plot.

Do you know how rare to see background not important passengers and background objects all get animated nowadays?

This could easily be the AOTS material. It's shocking how Mal overlooked this while most other Asian countries already hype this to death. Well I guess Mal only like Isekai and Shonen.

And here I thought both girls would meet on the train xD

Not saying that this will be as good as something like Nana, but we're off to a great start. Visuals, tone and music, they're all high quality. Carole's and Tuesday's chemistry is enjoyable too.

I think Gunjou no Magmel has been dethroned, best premiere this season and I'm so glad that it's 24 episodes.

@jsaturn raws are already out.

Ok, rewatched the episode and it was even more enjoyable, some minor flaws like the lack of faces during some scenes are bearable. And wtf guys, why are a noticeable amount of people here wary of yuri? XD It's like friendship between girls is a foreign concept for some. There's a romance tag, but that can mean anything.

Really? When they're just talking the sound design is fine but when the music comes on...
That sounds like someone actually singing on a street or people singing in a room to you?(much less without microphones) Interesting. How so?

Not a bad start, we will see how it continues. Visuals were pretty good, oh and that song they sang together was nice. It was something different using english va to sing, but it didn't sound off at least to me which is a plus, it flowed nicely.

Still don't hear anything off about it whatsoever. High music production is always a welcomed thing.

Are you sure its not your ears failing you (for the scene in the room), or you having unreasonable expectation (for the scene on the street)? The former sounds completely natural to me, and the latter is just as fine. Yes, the ambient noise from the street (which is present during the dialogue) is cut and the music track is focused, just like any insert song of an anime or film or TV drama. And it shouldn't sound like it's being recorded in an open area to replicate the environment, just as you would never expect characters' dialogue, say, out in the field or on the street, sounds like one in real life.

BONES SAVING ANIME YET AGAIN THIS SEASON...........................
What is it with them these days? Last season we got Mob Psycho 100 II which was amazing. And now we got Carole & Tuesday, Bones gone out of their way to hire professional english singers. I'm digging the artstyle and animation too, most likely will be my anime of the season by the end of it.

MORE PEOPLE NEED TO WATCH THIS
But i'm sure they're gonna talk about OPM and AOT all season.

First of all that ED is super catchy.

I find the world more intriguing than the characters. I love the details and architecture of the world. Music is good too. But I guess characters were too randomly introduced without giving much to them.

Overall a good start.

Wonderful, the first episode is beautiful 💕 the characters, the animation, the soundtrack, and the story are a perfection 💓
The characters emotion really pierce through my heart, this one is a big candidates for AOTS and the best ost in the year. This one have many potentials in the future.

The only part that could be somewhat better was how the girls met. I mean it's actually believable, but they could have shown that in the second episode at least. Putting that aside, everything else felt incredible. I really dig the sci-fi setting, the visuals are gorgeous, the soundtrack is amazing and the characters seem to have very strong chemistry. The story looks very promising as well.

While I personally didn't mind it, I hear what you're saying. I'm assuming they wanted to make every performance sound good rather than authentic, but it would have been nice to actually hear their performance actually start amateurish so we can appreciate them improve.

Now I'm positive this won't happen, but kinda wishing they'll have a cameo of the Bebop crew hidden in the crowd sometime down the road.

Other than the awkward animation depicting Tuesday running away from her house, the rest of the show is incredible in terms of art and music.

Their duet is amazing. Can't wait to see how awesome it would sound when they completed a full-fledged song.

Oh, too bad we have to wait a little longer for the OP. I had been breaking the replay button in Youtube already.

Yeah it’s getting ridiculous, it’s pissing me off when there’s always people saying it’s “Yuri” when there is nothing that makes it obvious that it will happen.

It's interesting. Carole and Tuesday have a cute relationship. That model, Angela I think her name is kind of snobby though. Not surprising since people in Alba City seem mean.

Another thing I didn't like was Tuesday's backstory with her family not seeming to like her wanting to pursue music, looks like they got a Miguel from Coco situation going on.

It seems pretty good so far but not great.

We went from "Trigger saving anime" to "Bones saving anime". Will the latter be the case for this show? I don't really know for sure, but this is an anime-original, so anything can happen.

P.S. The character designs remind me of Eureka Seven.

Amazing premiere episode. From such an interesting choice of setting, to some great visuals, to really quality singing.

And hell, the instagram page in the anime actually exists in real life too and that was sick.

You can tell a lot of love was put into this show from the premiere episode and I'm so happy this delivered. Hopefully the quality can be maintained, if not, improve even more. Great stuff.

First episode of Carole & Tuesday was really melancholy and bittersweet as we see Carol run from her home and rich lifestyle in search of something new and to find someone who wants to achieve the same purpose as her in life, which is singing. It was great getting insights into what kind of life and upbringing Carole and Tuesday had and it's amazing to see they are chasing their dreams, their duet at the end was bittersweet and really amazing to hear and as a duo they clicked really well! Alba City looks really futuristic and i'd love to live there haha, the art for Carole and Tuesday looks great and I hope there is more character development next episode. Also the part with Angela and that other dude was interesting, he spells trouble to me! Overall a solid episode, the music flowed really well. Also if you're interested feel free to check out the Carole and Tuesday subreddit https://www.reddit.com/r/CarolAndTuesday/ and it's discord server https://discord.gg/NJswvEy

I feel mixed so far. The animation and music are great, probably the best of the season, but the dialogue is just poorly written. It often has Tuesday saying very shoujo tropey vague expression of teeny sentimentalism that would simply be awkward in real life.

The setting is also pretty unimaginative. It looks like they just cram every skyscrapers in the world in one city. And the "old" part of the city just looks exactly like NYC. Why would you have so many 19C style old buildings in a Mars colony? Anyways, all these problems will be rendered unimportant if the story turns out to be good. Hopefully it will.

don't like that they switch to english singers when they sing but otherwise fine.

Cowboy Bebop (1998) - great
Samurai Champloo (2004) - great
Kids on the Slope (2012) - okay
Space Dandy (2014) - varied by the episode
Zankyou no Terror (2014) - mediocre

Shinichiro Watanabe's anime have been hit and miss for me post-Champloo so hope this'll be good.

Eh... Gives me Apollon flashbacks. Looks like an empty shell with whimsical setting that could have been different - so does not really seem to be part of narratively coherent project. Also characters seem very black and white and overdone, as if the childish emphasis of their traits was needed for viewer to get the point.
Not my cup of tea.

I like this. This was a pretty decent first episode with insane production values. I'm not to crazy about the character designs (what is it with that haircut?) but they're ok I suppose and the detail and animation was top, top notch for a series.
I get the feeling that MAL won't be too kind with it though. It's not a hype show based on a visual novel/manga or videogames, it's on Netflix which is a big no no in MAL and doesn't look like it will have a lot of humour either. Let's see.

That's actually pretty true for idols and prefab pop bands. In the distant future, only songwriters will be safe (and even they are at peril if AI keeps evolving).
