ok, i'm out. maybe right some people just too fast give judgement to this show.
but who the hell that give 10 on the review/rate ?
sheesh I'm goes to retard mode too and rate this one 1 (don't worry i change them if i drop this one) because faggots like them
Agreed, anyone who would rate 10/10 after one episode and post up a goddamn review is an idiot. (No offense).

Still, rating it 1/10 just because of that is kinda childish... I daresay it might be sinking to their level?
HOLY SHIT, people!

This is madness! However I am liking the rage for this show, but everyone is making a really big deal out this although it can be compared to it in quite a bit of aspects. Maybe it will calm down after a while like how Sora no Woto was.

Do it. It was a quite honestly, entertaining troll subs.

Maximatum, let's be honest, did that ever really calm down? -_-

noteDhero said:
I will give them credit for having a lot of guys in the cast, though. That's a sharp difference from Key's past casts, and my pants enjoy that decision.

Well, ignoring the pants part, I agree with this. I was sure this would have way more girls in it because of the promo's and pictures and stuff but having an even ratio is much better.

Well... after a while it felt like a vague shadow of their super moe previous life shells and everyone got tired of comparing it to K-on! I have hopes for the internet to make various parodies and funny images on Angel Beats and with K-on!! on the horizon, shit is going to get even more entertaining.

Yuri reminds me a whole lot of haruhi o_o just not as in control,but I thought the first episode was very good,though i'd like to see them get deeper into the point of the show. XD I have good expectations for Angel beats though,and the insert concert song is very addicting for me. xD

Ah right, I forgot to mention that.

This x 100.
I don't give a shit how bad or good the show gets, I'm watching it for T.K.
FUCKING T.K., MAN.

Anyway, as far as the episode, it was so-so. Nothing too special, nothing horrible. I'll admit it has some potential, but it could go horribly wrong. I won't judge the first episode too harshly.
But goddamn, man.
T.K.

Opinions of whether you like this episode or not, I don't understand the one or two people saying the animation is bad. Are we watching the same episode?
Because this episode's animation and production values were amazing...

Might as well repost some speculation I posted on /a/ that no one cared about

"T.K. has a pair of handcuffs hanging around his neck, the token loli has a broken pair of handcuffs on her wrists.





Connection?"

Great animation and absolutely amazing art.
Character designs are kinda...dull?
Also don't like Yuri. She's too much like overrated Haruhi.

Was hoping to see the OP in this episode...

I didn't like how they had comedy in it. Would have been better as a serious anime.

lol at people complaining about the review giving this a 10. If you don't like the review, then DON'T READ THE DAMN THING. Bloody hell, it's not like the world is going to end if somebody wrote a goddamn review for the show.

The endless debate between fans and haters. At one point, after spending a lot of time on MAL, you just realize it's totally pointless.

I didn't notice this on my first few watches, but when I captured this screenshot I noticed something quite interesting.



Of course, this is pure speculation, as I've not checked out the VN yet.

There is no VN, this is an anime original work.

And, yes, there has been speculation that this is just one big MMOJRPG. Guilds, NPCs etc.

Nothing happened for the entire episode. Setting was meh. Character design was meh. BG was meh. Story was meh. Casts were meh. Everything was basically not over my standard of 'meh'.

Design of general character really bugged me hell a lot. Very inconsistent. BG was not that bad though; all those usage of CG was a bit off, but generally good. However, I can't deny I disappointed a bit on PA Works, which is trying to become Kyo-ani generation two, basically.

The critical problem I had with this episode was how mood flows through. First, we had Otonashi with our overworking seiyuu Kamiya Hiroshi. Suddenly, Haruhi alike girl appears and says 'ima in sss brigade!!'. Then, random blue haired guy came, but after the blink of second, Otonashi went right next to emotionless alienic angel. he said some random thing, then got stabbed. Soon, he got 100 comboed and died for a few sec, went to the principle office and died again. At night, suddenly some random girl groups are doing some band and Otonashi is shooting that angel. I was like... 'wtf with this whornadotical plot swift goin on here?'

I mean... all the things are a bit off. Comedy scenes are awkwardly placed and characters are just too random. We didn't even get the glimpse of clue what will be going on with this anime. I know this is a first episode, but... it wasn't good as it should've been.

As far as I know, this is the original story Whitewolf. No game/manga of this exists that I know of. There will be a manga based off the anime though, if I remember right reading that on ANN.


Well, I meant that I didn't play the VN, so I don't know the story xD

I loved the approach. The story line looks enticing, and the animation is gorgeous. The sound is as well incredible. Everything about this series reeks something wonderful in the mix. And since it's by Key, it's probably going to be sad, but they'll make it work really well. Excited to watch next weeks episode.

Of course they don't have any similarities. I mean, look at their hair band!! Their costume!! Hair style!! Voice!! Personality!! There are absolutely no common thing at all!! They are the most different set of character I've ever seen!

....wtf am I doing?...

I enjoyed it, but the animation detail on the characters was poor IMO. It felt like Ookami Kakushi (nice animated spaces and effects, poor animated characters.)

Just finished watching it & I thought it was fairly good.

This show definitely has potential but I'm scared that it'll play too much with the tropes & end up being nothing but a big blob of mocking cliches. As if that's any more original nowadays...

Also I was surprised that the cast consisted mostly of guys O__o
Not that I'm complaining ♥

It's a nice change from having KEY's cutesy girls running all over the damn place lol.

Oh hey, I remember that thread. I was the anon saying that T.K. was a kinky motherfucker.

But in all seriousness, there could be a connection I suppose. I mean, they don't know anything about T.K.'s past, maybe there's some sort of connection nobody knows about?

So far, the concept behind the series is interesting....how it was carried out was, as some people have mentioned - a bit cheap.
conceptually, the show has potential to be a good mindfuck. however, judging by this episode - they'll probably just waste that potential. it coulld be just another hairbrained anime series....

at least, i hope the jokes get better --- because in this ep, they were plain awkward....

Seriously if people don't stfu and come off this zomgYuiIsHaruhilolol I'm gonna shoot myself. The caracter design is nothing a like. All assertive and borderline abrasive female leads =/= Haruhi. And to me Haruhi's character was Yui x10 going past the description i mentioned to just annoying and fucking obnoxious.

That being said i thought the first ep was pretty freaking awesome and intense (and i've been maintaining the stance can spell Key without Kyoani... and an e. ao that's saying a lot)

the battle scene was awesome. music was good, the animation and art through out the ep was superb. Good blend of comedy offset by a darker plot and just hint (but not too much to make the elitist or atheist rage quit) of serious maybe philosophical undertones...

Good start. Wasn't expecting anything much so i was pleasantly surprised.
