THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
----------------------------------------
Not a bad episode, Yuri pretty much acting the way I expected her to act, and she is pretty cute when she can. Angel...is seriously like Nagato sometimes more than I thought lol but she is pretty damn awesome as well. Not a bad start this looks enjoyable already.

But you can totally tell the entire budget went into the concert scene, although not at God Knows levels, it was still pretty damn awesome and had really cool effects.

Totally worth checking it out

After the mass of previews and building up a hype I was expecting quite a lot, in terms of animation and effects it was good. I hope that won't drop with ongoing episodes.
Story-wise it did not reveal too much, the 'real' background is not clear yet.. need some more episodes to know if I'll like it. Maybe that's why everyone talked only about picture quality ^^
At least Yuri does not only look like Haruhi, she often acted like her ("Baka janai no?") :D

Since I only watched the raw so far, I'll say that the sound was really good, and the art was pretty. I LOVED IT - now I only need subs to get anything out of it.

Amazing production quality
Amazing insert song and ending song

Now for the subs to make sure I got most of what was said!

So far very good first episode

Watched raw only because I want to watch it early.Good introduction episode but not much background been exposed.Animation & sound is amazing, so does the voice acting.So far Otonashi/Angel yet to impress me but other cast such Yuri,Noda&Hinata I starting to like them :)
The concert scene is also nice ( I wonder if the ticket sales money is used to buy weapon)
But there is something that bugging me in this episode.At the scene when other SSS members busy attacking Angel,Otonashi in the back watching several tickets flying down...what the hell he's thinking?

Need more Yusa please :\

意味不明なアニメ。 I still don't understand the anime from this ep. I think I'm not used to this kind of anime.

I agree that so far it looks good, I really don't understand it at all. Yui-chan's role (Yusa) is a character who doesn't fight (background member).

(Oh, and I'm just watching first ep.s of new anime for now.)

It's too early to say whether or not it's meeting expectations, but it certainly has the makings for a good plot. The hook is just... too grabbing; rather the whole premise is interesting. Though at the moment it seems like pointless gore-hacks; rather, I'd like to find out why they're doing what they do, because it seems pointless overall, but they did say that if they try to blend in they'll disappear. Animation is fabulous, except for that concert/insert song scene. The ED is nice.

The effects are pretty awesome, but considering I only picked up enough words to understand the topic of the conversation, and not what they were actually saying.. I need the subs, still understood more than I expected to though.

It was a pretty decent episode, though I think I'm slightly getting tired of seeing high school setting basically everywhere... Hope that Maeda Jun prepared a plot to justify it...

Other than that, I would have chosen a different singing voice for Iwasawa cos that voice wasn't husky enough, yet she is normally voiced by Sawashiro Miyuki. Would have been better with Anna Tsuchiya singing.

But it was funny, the gun fights were nice, and I liked the song to, so 4/5 I would say.

This is so different from Key's previous works. I really like it. It's a nice change. The animation was great the music was also pretty sweet. Especially the ending song. The humor is alright guess I am just kinda getting use to their jokes though after clannad. That and I don't know why it seems a bit. . .dark in the situation. Don't really know if I like Yuri she is kinda annoying to me for some reason. Reminds me a lot of Haruhi too. . . I like the girl that stands kinda in the shadows though she seems like she might be my favorite.

The story is very interesting, there feels like a lot of mystery already at the start which is good. I look forward to seeing more already.

COALGUY SUBS WERE AMAZING!!!
definitely going with them for the rest of the season :D

Mazuii subs were trolls, just download the coalguys one, they are the best and most consistent with high quality videos

Oh hi there awesome Maeda music. It's great to hear your BGM's again.

A very interesting premise. There's a lot of stuff that needs to be answered but I am definitely intrigued by episode 1. I don't think the humor was that different from Key works. I mean, for example, the 100 hit combo was totally Tomoyo reference (I think).

"Ippen shindemiru?"
HAH! That actually works as a joke now.

This show will probably be one of the higher rated ones out there. It was AMAZING, from the animation to the charaters, to the music,to the comedy, to the action to the Haruhi/Clannad characters. This was EPIC!!!

It's okay so far. Angel is already my favorite character since it's so sad seeing her get shot at and whatnot when it's obvious they are trying to kill Edward Elric.

I think I'm gonna like this. For a first episode it had its fair share of both comedy and action.

Different from other Key shows for sure, but definitely up to Key quality. I'm intrigued to say the least. I don't entirely get it to be honest, but that's what's so intriguing. I want to get it, and I'll definitely be sticking with it to learn more. This was at the top of my list for the spring season, and so far it's lived up to it's position (although the competition thus far has been lacking). OST was also awesome. Hope it's released soon.

Not much of a strong series. I expected that the show would go according to the theme of Guns & Fights. First half went in all conversation with Otonashi's experience. 2nd Half was a little better but it seems it has been somehow linked to "Haruhi Suzumiya". Many similarities are there. On the whole, the first episode should be more action-filled. I am not saying that there shouldn't be a slot for comedy but the theme is lose. I didn't like it much. Series rating: 5/10

"Does God exist?" No... How do you define "God"? That is the question. One creates their definition from projecting their understanding so it varies. I'm saying shit. Or am I?

This episode was satisfactory from certainly a twist in concepts and very nice animation.

Edit: Wait a minute. I just watched Coalguys subs and it is super accurate compared to Mazui. It's worth the watch a second time!

Very good production values, horrid music though. I still think this is Haruhi vs Yuki in an alternate universe.

Just finished watching mazui's version I think it was pretty good. The characters were kinda meh.... cept maybe angel (cause mysterious characters are always intriguing amirite?)the male lead seems kinda of a joke and the female lead seemed kinda lacking...but the animation and music were nice. They gave a feel of the plot which is a interesting concept and I hope they build it up more in the next eps and not talk more about the organization (BTW I would go with where is the real haruhi-sama battlefront? :P bad joke I know)which I assume the title of the next eps suggests. Also TK > engrish

FUCK YES! It's Goddamn funny when you first watch Mazui's subs, then Coalguys version; assuming it is REALLY Coalguys. Never laughed that hard in a while.

The most anticipated spring animu certainly delivered. It has such a strange premise but I guess it's what makes me coming back to the next episode. PA Works definitely delivered with the first episode. It has some pretty witty dialogue in it to boot. The engrish guy was totally lolz too. We need to see more of him.
