THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
Omg, Louise is adorable! But you gotta feel sorry for Saito, randomly being summoned to some random place then randomly becoming some random person's random slave @___@
Wow! I wasn't expecting much from this anime, but after watching a few more 'serious' anime recently, this is just what I needed. The dynamic between the two main characters looks like it'll be a blast to watch. Still, as long as I get to see more of Kirche, I'll be very happy indeed... Hm? Did I say that out loud?

Not my type of anime, but the fact that I was able to finish it, is because Louise summon a human being which is really out of the league and quite funny. And I was not hoping for Harry potter resemblance (hate the movie)
I just started this anime (obviously), and I was pleasantly surprised! Many people told me not to get my hopes up ("Louise is an evil, obnoxious tsundere..." "Typical harem show..." "Harry Potter rip-off...").
I was very charmed. Poor Louise, being such a zero! I think the side characters are amusing (i.e. Guiche the playboy, Kirche the snobby oppai-queen... Hope I spelled those right). I even like the Harry Potter-ish world of spells and student mages.
"If you were to turn into a snake tomorrow and begin devouring humans, and from the same mouth you started devouring humans, you cried out to me 'I love you,' would I still be able to say 'I love you' the same way I do today?"
An alright first episode - it's pretty derivative but entertaining.
As others have mentioned, it is hard not to feel bad for Saito but I thought it was amusing that one of his guesses as to what had happened to him was that he had been abducted by a bunch of fantasy geeks. We all know what a dangerous bunch they can be.
Interesting and fun first episode, Louise's mishaps are funny and cute, talk about sealing the deal with that contract though. Admittedly I'm watching because of all the negative reception on her character, so far she's aight.
