THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
----------------------------------------
I think I missed first 10 mins or something? or did it air late? No, it was aired 15 mins. late.

Anyway I like it since few secs after OP. It's like *BOOM, BOOM BOOM!!*

Oh, and ED WAS SOOOOOOOOOO CUTE! Makoto is so cute, unlike him in the poster.

Hmm.. I expected more from SHAFT with the OP and ED theme animations, especially with the Denpa-style OP song... I guess they're kinda on a low-budget this season.

Anyway, the actual episode was pretty much consistent with the light novel, so I was quite happy with it. :)

Meme is pure cuteness and I'm glad Erio is out of the futon, she's beautiful. That OP man, it searches for weaknesses in your mind and stays there. I was going to give the episode a 4 if the futon didn't go but since it was removed by Makoto 5/5.

So anyway, who the hell came up with the idea to make an OP like that? Fire that person, right away. Right now. Or more like, who came up with that song? ( ̄Д ̄)
And I could technically summarize this episode into a single word, "wat".
And it feels kinda SHAFT-ish, which is... good, I guess.
Oh and, I laughed so hard when she ate the pizza.
And ET reference out of nowhere. Everything's got ET references nowadays. >_>

And I dislike both Erio and Meme's voices. Though Erio is kind of okay, anyway.
But it seems like it might be a fun ride anyway.

Why? The song is perfectly fine and the opening itself is just what you'd expect from shaft.

I love the OP.
Since subs aren't out yet, I watched the raw and I have no clue what the hell is going on, but I must say I love this show already.
I laughed when Erio was thrown into the door and was stuck in it. XD
My only question is how the heck did she balance on the bike?
Overall, I'm excited to see how it will turn out. :D

The summary of what I've seen in this episode was...
*above spoiler contains no spoiler but hnng.

Denpa OP, Denpa ED, Denpa Story, Denpa Characters. Enough said. I loved it.

I loved how Meme is just totally trolling Makoto the whole episode. It was just lolz. And the way she swung Erio into the door lolwtf. So far, so good. Lol at the end when he's totaling up the points for his puberty.

The OP was really good. Annoying at the beginning but grows on you really fast.

I already fell in love with Meme.
Her eyes captivated me and dragged me into an abyss of loveliness.

I have to give it up to SHAFT and their lovely use of lighting; I adore Erio's room.

That was fantastic. It won't top Iroha, but this might be one of the top shows this season from such a great first episode.
Considering the author also wrote Lying Mii-kun and Broken Maa-chan, I've got pretty high expectations for an awesome plot coming our way.
The animation was smooth and detailed, the characters were done well, the lighting was nice, the OP and ED were both adorable-- love that ED song! * A*
And Erio? SHE'S SO CUTE ;; ESPECIALLY IN THE FUTON WHEN SHE MUMBLED OUT SUCH RANDOM THINGS WOBBLING AROUND WITH PIZZA ON HER HEAD.

Really looking forward to the next episode.

Moe, weird and fun about sums up the first episode for me and probably in that order. Also reminded me of Arakawa Under the Bridge a bit by the time the ED started rolling. Looking forward to more.

That was a really weird, but really fun first episode. The art is pleasing and the animation was pretty good too. Can't wait for more!

Meme gets so much moe points from me. LOL she friggen went yandere on Erio so fast when she fucked up the food with that chair.

How can she even see the TV with the futton in the way? Lmao well I guess there's nothing much to watch anyways since its white noise.

That star shining lamp thingy is cool. I want one now.

She's really pretty. Screw her being a self-proclaimed alien. Shes like a Goddess lol.

This show has its fair shares of wittiness, WTFs, and falls-out-of-my-chair hilarity. And the moe tops it.
OP is very *screechy? however.

lol what's with the ending

I liked it a lot but I'm a little wary since it seems like it could head down incest territory.

also lol'd at the panty shot, i can smell how much that boosted sales already

I just love the OP. Been listening to the full version that got ripped a few weeks ago, it's such an annoying sounding song, yet so good at the same time. The animation for it is so fun! Gotta love SHAFT.

Here's the full OP song for those interested, it's bad quality though until the single comes out: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aJm0Y-qu-GA

When he was on the train, I noticed he has the exact same ipod as me. xD Although the screen broke on mine. Meme really looks like Ami from Toradora...and she has an awesome name.

The room with all the lights on the wall looks so cool, I'd love to have something like that in my room. I really love the song that plays in the background when he's talking to her when the tv is all static. Looking forward to the OST.

The ED is great, I love Etsuko Yakushimaru.

Even with the generic harem setting, this is definitely going to be an entertaining show for me this season. SHAFT does a great job of taking something like this and making it interesting for me.

I wouldn't be surprised if Meme lied about Erio being her daughter (at least biological). That way, it won't really be incest if they end up in a romantic relationship.

If she really is her daughter, I'm pretty sure SHAFT can make this a good show without the romance.

I thought maybe that was something to do with the way the Kanji was rather than her age actually being 39. Ya never know.

Haha, yeah, that was cool.

I love the way they wrote the dialogue for this. Great entertainment - it seems a lot better thought-out than other shows. Overall, a good start. I didn't think this would be as entertaining as it is. I like the art style, too. Especially the eyes. Kirei~

I was going to ask how she didn't tip the bike over when she was in that basket all by herself, but screw that question, how was she balancing on top of the bike? She's clearly light as a feather and has an amazing sense of balance. :P

Beautiful anime character. Seriously. I love sparkles. :o

Oh, and that ending song is seriously one of my favorites this season. [C], Denpa Onna, and Hanasaku Iroha are the best this season (so far).

Well that was a rather strange way to start off the show. Meme looks a lot like a grown-up version of Ami from Toradora.

Best part of the episode was Meme throwing Erio and Erio getting stuck in the door.

Looking forward to seeing more. Most Shaft shows are pretty interesting. Since this is listed as a Seinen maybe I can expect some serious stuff to happen later on....maybe.

Yeah I thought that too cause when I first saw the pic, I thought she was around his age or a little older, but 39? Sheesh, did she make a deal with aliens for those looks?

As for the show, looks promising but what to expect? All we got was a few laughs from a futon wrapped alien loli. xD

"Ladies and gentlemen! I present you tonight, at this special place... Kawashima, Ami - MILF version. Unchanged in appearance, but who cares! 39 year old women look like 18!" - I mean it struck me like that once I saw her.

As for Eriko.... To quote some of the people here... "MoeMoeMoeMoeMoeOVERLOAD!"

It was bizarre, it had some laughs, Makoto's reactions were right on the spot. I am looking forward to more!
