THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
----------------------------------------
Ok, I enjoyed the first episode. It was fresh, funny and the plot goes quite quicky...

I'm a little bit dissapointed with the animation, especially Usui's blunt eyes, he's like staring somewhere... (he's much more hot in the manga)
And did you noticed the unusual background 'scratches-like-thing' and the bg music?

I need to check it once again when the subs came out. ;)

If you are interested there are some very LQ pictures and notes:

Excuse my English ;)

[since i couldn't wait for the subs, i watch the raw episode xD ]

I can say I'm pretty much satisfied with the animation, at first I thought it would be dissapointing but it's quite good :D I've waited for this anime for so long and it finally came out - I'm very happy :D :D
Misaki is very pretty ^_^ Usui is much hotter in the manga, but -oh well- I can survive it ^_^
and I'm satisfied with the voice actor and actress of Usui and Misaki :D I think it suits them ^^

and...

Misaki's sister and mom appeared already on the first episode unlike in the manga.

Usui was sooo cool in the ending song (>w<)/
Can't wait for the next episode :]

I wasn't planning to watch new series, but I decided to watch ep.1. Not considering the character designs, I loved the story because the anime follows manga well.

In the beginning of ED made me lol.

Same for me :)

I thought they did do well following the manga. Animation . . . backgrounds looked like all they did was photo shopped them in. . . sigh. Characters need some work as well. But even with the animation it still was an AWESOME ep! The story makes it great

Random but, I didn't expect Sakura to be a brunette (expected blonde). I quite enjoyed the ED . . . Looking forward to the sub version ^^

Agreeing on Vampire-Alice's comment.
Bad production quality is bad. Seriously, I think all JC Staff's budget was put on Uraboku but oh well.

Also, the only thing that wasn't based on the manga is what Rinri said, the early appearance of her family. But OMG her sister is kinda moe.

Well this is the shoujo feed for this season, Yay~ I am so gonna follow it. Hopefully a good team picks it up. I wish it was Production I.G though, J.C staff lacks details in shoujo anime :/

Misaki is soooo kawaiiiiii~

awesome!! better than what I have expected, it was funny and lovely

true Usui was not that sexy as we've seen in the manga , but in the ED he made me drool >////<

I caught a glimpse of Shintani in the OP I was not sure he would appear in the anime

btw is it me or things were moving too fast?
anyway I hope the series would make it to 25 episodes

Brilliant! Just the OP delighted me and the ED of Takumi made me tear up.....the voice of who sings it was emotional to me. Series starts at 8/10 not only because of the atmosphere of Kimi ni Todoke a little but also there was no ecchi.....I find that much harder and rcognize it mroe if a anime does not have that but when it does then I just deal with it.....glad I don't have to in this series. I find the introduced Suzuna a little too fast=>
but she looks nice and energetic but also a teazer to Misaki.....she is also a incredible girl. Shizuko and Sakura are well done but I find Sakura reminding me a lot of Shirai a little=>


Second part was a win in a nice opposition of Misaki towards Takumi over his offer (nicely done to me=>

......and especially my favorite was when he saved her at the end.......from the looks of those guys they got rather scared really fast of Takumi=>

Did Takumi carry her all the way to her place? If he did he a true gentleman even if not just saving her was incredible he looks way better than Kazehaya was. Takumi is #1 in studies? So apart from being scarier a super genius?=>
Pretty impressed of Misaki's mother hard work....shows how her family is...strong=>
Mainly like Misaki for her outbursts of anger, her sudden hyper reactions and the sudden fear impact she can have on others=>
My 2 favorite parts with Misaki=>
Avatars I made=>
Original size of the avatars=>
A funny moment=>
Overall it was something I never expected and it rather does well to replace my Kimi ni Todoke I miss.

I know the girls will drool till dry of that ED....girl fan service galore for a ED I find.

Yeah I find they are moving too fast also....hoping for it to be 25 but might be 13.

Am I the only one who doesn't find this appealing(the anime I mean). Look at Usui. He's..dull-looking. He doesn't appeal to me unlike in the manga. So is Misaki.
I'm finding it hard to appreciate this adaptation. Help me, LOL.

The first time I read KWMS, Usui gave me a "WOW!I WANNA READ MORE OF THIS!USUI IS LOVE~~" feeling. While here, the appearance of Usui has no effect on me. (jiii~) Except for the ED of course, dammit. He's too hot there. I dunno the exact differences. *tries harder to love Usui in anime-form*

well i only read one chapter from the manga long time ago, the story wasnt my type, but i remember clearly that i was so impressed by Usui. he´s absolutely outstanding in the manga, while in the anime, he seems to me like a kid. the art is so much better in the manga. so, yes, i understand you.
oh, and btw, the opening sucks...so...childish?! i would prefer to see the ending in opening, its much better.

Nia, you are not alone.
No matter how I look at it, it really seems like a low budget anime >_>
I mean just look at how the previous shoujo anime (Kobato and KnT) was animated. Animation and Production was so poor =_=

WOW, I am glad that I wasn't the only who was irritated at the OP song~ (it's only the song that I don't like) and yeah ED >>>>>>> OP

I'm not too impressed with the first episode but it definitely has something that will keep me watching this for now. Since I havn't read the manga I don't see any problems with Usui. He sure looks handsome there. Can't imagine how far better he would look in the manga.

Misaki reminds me of Hikari from Special A in basic aspects, however I can sympathize with her. Her character design is simple but attractive. The humor on the whole did not make me flinch but the "maid" part with the guys made me laugh.

When he came in to save her at the end, that scene wasn't as intense as it was meant to be but it was slightly softened with her appealing expression.

Ok episode.

Haha, I thought so, I was like " WTH another Kuroko again?" (not that I didn't like her or anything)...it was funny XD

It was a great ep for a begining, I don't wanna say that the manga is much more better, I think they did a really good job with the characterdesign or the op and ed so I'm quite satisfied with the outcome. Just keep it up!

8/10 for this :D

I enjoyed it. Seems to me like the only criticisms are about the artwork, which frankly is a LOT better than the first promo image. As for the animation itself... it was a LOT higher quality than i was expecting, especially considering it's a shoujo series.

I think they adjusted the art to make it more appealing to guys (making Misaki more moe, and Usui less bishie)

Lastly... for manga readers:

The first episode was really good, but I didn't get the same intensity of misaki when she's angry like in the manga. She seemed more of a demon in the manga.

The OP was a bit irritating though

Seems good so far :D

Fun start! Misaki in particular with her reactions, the 'maid' attack was hilarious XD

Wasn't sure when announced, but the VAs really fit!!!! Liking the background music too and the OP is likeable enough. Actually was surprised at some characters appearing in the OP, hopefully means it'll be a long running series. As for the ED... lol'd! :P

I think Usui could have been drawn better in the anime, but I thought Misaki was fine.

However, I do think that they kind of rushed the story a little in the anime, and didn't do a good job of explaining why exactly she is angry with all boys

OP & ED are ok, though the ED song is much better.

Art is ok, too. Story reminds me of Special A very much.

Seems like a decent pick for this episode. It doesn't seem to be a 2nd KnT unfortunately, but it looks good so far.
