THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
----------------------------------------
Immediately after the anime was started, I feel that the graphic looks like the one in Kuuchuu Buranko!! Then it became different as that salary man entered a different world...

It looks interesting so far.

OP is rocky and ED is nice.

The theme gives me the eden of the east feel which I dig.

It gots that perfect amount of weird in it to keep you interested but not scare you off. Can't wait to get some more.

What is your PIN code?
Confirmed.
Do you wish to make a deal?
"Yes."
Would you like to choose an opponent?
"Yes."


666 - What a terrible number to have! XD

Interesting concept, which is why I was looking forward to this show. The characters are pretty cool so far, and I love the voice acting. Masakaki and Kimimaro are awesome! Also, Masakaki reminds me a lot of Xerxes Break from Pandora Hearts with the way he talks.

Looking forward to episode 2.

That was so good, the story is very interesting, let's hope it stays that way on all the episodes.
Best anime i've seen this season together with Hanasaku Iroha.

Man I've been waiting all day for this, and it didn't disappoint. Maybe it's just because I was really hyped for this show, but I loved every second of it. Masakaki is awesomesauce. Waiting for next week is going to be painful.

i knew since the beginning that that man was going to suicide after seeing all those rejected cards. shows pretty good so far i guess.
If your going to complain that Yu-Gi-Oh! Mangas are on the top NY times manga best sellers, you must not realize how popular Card games are(as well as the fact that you get a free card).

I was expecting something like Eden of the East, but this is turning out more like Yu-Gi-Oh or something. I'm not sure if I like the battling aspect of this anime.

I don't find the animation all that great either, and don't like the character designs. But some of the effects they use are cool looking.

That clown looking guy is creepy.

The ending is almost exactly like Eden of the East's, even the same band. xD

First ep was alright, not as good as I was hoping, but looking forward to more.

No kid. school food punishment.
Just the instrumentals playing at the beginning, I already thought her voice will come out and start singing. And she did.

This is exactly why I love the Noitamina block. ALWAYS UP TO SOMETHING GOOD. Hehe.
Concept's pretty awesome and I love the numbers "666."
Was totally drawn to Masakaki and Kimimaro's exchange...and I fell head over heels for Masakaki from then on. :'P

Can't wait for the next episode, and hoping Tatsunoko delivers another quality episode. ;']

Holy fucking shit. The beginning was like the 16th generation of Yu-Gi-Oh.

That card is so damn powerful too.

The pink haired looking dude is crazy lol damn...

A lot of things went on and its pretty interesting. Bad things happen when you want money....or does it? We'll have to wait for next episode.

Looking good so far.

Definitely one of the better anime this season.
The main character was very likable to me in the beginning with his normal aspirations, but I am looking forward how the world of money will corrupt him.

interesting story. good characters. good voice acting. seems like a win all around. I thought for sure that Minabi was interested in him.... then a boyfriend from a rich family. I'm sure we'll see more.

one of the best so far this season.

Huh not what I had expected. I was expecting something slightly more realistic like a secret organization behind the workings of the stock market or something. But this is still interesting at least. Let's see where this will go. Totally diggin the OP/ED too.

It has that weird Eden of the East, like just being chosen? Can't explain it, but I loved that feeling xD

The battling aspect isn't really what I expected, but it won't exactly drive me away, can't wait for some more C! Or it's longer name lol

after some serious complaining about this since i've seen those trailers, this turned out to be the "most amazing" i've seen this season so far, and they've redrawn the "sloppy scenes" shown in the trailers that's why it made it a lot better.

i'm loving Nakamura Kenji directing and artistic sense already and looks like i will be admiring him same w/ Shaft's Shinbo. ^^

first ep is 10/10 for me ^^

oh and enlightenment for the "battle system"

taken from http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/interview/2011-04-12/round-table/the-cast-of-c/the-money-of-soul-and-possibility-control

Question: Question for Mr. Uchiyama and Ms. Tomatsu: From the materials I got, I can't visualize the battle sequences. You mentioned that there will be action in the show but what will the battle scenes be like? Will they resemble Yu-Gi-Oh!?

MC: There aren't any action sequences in the first episode. They will have action scenes in the next episode, though. I assume that the cast members here have read the script and have an idea of what to expect. Please give us some comments based on what you will record today.

Uchiyama: Kimimaro, who I play, gives orders to Mashu, which Tomatsu-chan plays. Kimimaro has Mashu launch an attack and fight with an opponent's asset.

MC: In other words, in the Financial District, an “Entrepreneur” has the money, and an “Asset” like Mashu is an incarnation of an “Entrepreneur”. Then, the Entrepreneur spends the money and has the asset launch an attack. Whether you win or lose, you get damaged, and you lose money.

Uchiyama: If you lose, you go bankrupt.

MC: If you lose the game and all of your property, you will be evicted from the Financial District. That's the rule.

Tomatsu: You need money for food.

MC: Yes, you need it to survive.

MC: So you fight and save money, and you will be rich. This cycle repeats itself. Simply put, that is the system.

Mr. Nakamura does it again. I was completely glued throughout he whole episode. The CG was really jarring and stood out but I guess I"ll get used to it. Other than that, I loved everything about this episode. And Sakurai in another Nakamura series as an eccentric character is awesome. Definitely looking forward to the rest of the series. Hopefully the rest of it doesn't disappoint.

The premise is very interesting. Although the best thing I like about the episode was the ED. Just wow, the animation is so colorful and nice to look at. And the song was really good too! Good first episode, I shall be keeping my eye on this.

Its such a unique but real story.I mean fuck, we all need money right about now and selling your future (not your soul per-see) for unlimited cash is kind of crazy but doable lol. this feels like a potential classic in the making

My most anticipated anime of the season. Like one mentioned here, the trailer had kind of let my expectation down a bit, but thank god, they have improved it just in time.

First episode was really good. I really don't mind that Yugi-Oh card battling concept because probably this anime will execute it better. Plus, the concept of the series is really interesting and unique. Definitely, didn't disappoint.

Can't wait for episode 2.
At first I was like, (╬ ಠ益ಠ)

It's like they're trying to make a Pokemon-esque show DEEP. No thanks.

I shall watch to see what happens from here but I suspect it will be flashy CGI monster battles... What a disappointment.

Was everything I expected this to be, and it didn't really disappoint. I had relatively high expectations for it and while it didn't exceed those, it didn't fall below them either. Looking forward to the next episode. ;O
