THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
----------------------------------------
Is the animation/CGI for this show really so bad? I don't mind it.

More information on the District. Things are continuing to interest me.

Ah, Masakaki. He's gotta be one of my favorite characters this whole season. "My, my, my, my, my..." Mikuni and Yoga seem pretty similar in looks to me. I wonder if there's anything behind that? Their assets also look a lot alike, too.

Looking forward to the next episode!

Another great episode! Although the fights are kind of weird it still was interesting.

Does anyone know how many episodes this will have?

If midas money continues to pop out of nowhere, wouldn't that bork up the economy?

The animation quality is really bad, I agree. But the story seems pretty good. Its just too bad they couldn't get a bigger budget

i think this is only 11 episodes, since the noitaminA timeslot is only one hour, and they have Usagi Drop and No.6 planned for next season.

i haven't watched this episode though >.<
Simplistic beauty can't be appreciated by someone who looks for something grand in everything he watch.

I think that the currencies from both worlds are used. Since he could not see them before, but I'm sure that they were always there, the more the money is used it benefits that "country" in this case the Financial District. If money just stays in a single place it gains no value, which is why I imagine that they have allowed Midas currency to circulate in the human world. It all has to do with economics, I'm sure there is a better explanation but I don't remember since it has been a while since I took economics.

Am I the only one who thought Mikuni was voiced by Koyasu Takehito.

He and Hosomi Daisuke (seiyuu for Mikuni) have almost identical voices.

The fight was interesting, definitely looking forward to the next episode. o u o

I was hoping that this would be around the ~24 episodes ballpark though, 11 just seems to be a little less for something like this.

I like the music in this series. The CGI looks weird, but I don't mind it.

I wonder what role the lollipop girl will play.

It's likely the Midas Bank and/or Financial District users buy up "real" money in addition to circulating and using their own. There should be flow both into and out of the Financial District. If there wasn't and money was just being minted there, you're definitely right that that would cause inflation and bork up the economy.

Very good episode like how they have to invest money in each attack they make if it hits they gain misses they lose looks like it will be a good show

Amazing, I was so so about the show but now that I've seen his asset, that cute of an asset at that; I'm in love.

Not bad at all, though the animation's a bit weird.

Hm. I was a little shaky at first, but this seems solid enough. I'm quite pleased to say it was entertaining, actually. The english actually doesn't sound too bad, barring the robots in the Financial District.

Yeah, I thought so too. He could definitely be Takehito's voice double, if he is ever sick or anything lol

I agree. Though, I think it's less that the CGI is bad, and more that the contrast between the two is noticeable. Older CGI is very obviously CGI, but this gets incredibly close to being well done. It falls a little outside that, just barely in an uncanny valley that looks like regular animation, but you can tell that something is off. For instance, when Kimimaro and Masakaki are talking after the battle, it's easy to tell that Masakaki is computer-animated while Kimimaro is more standard animation by the way that they move. It's a nice design decision, but the contrast is evident enough that it can be a bit distracting at times. I'm fine with it for the most part, though.

11???? WHY!?
This deserves a lot more than just a measly 11.
Oh well, guess we'll just have to make do.

Fighting style is well thought, hope we see a lot of well plan moves and not a overpower spamathon.

lmao i wont even deny it - the animation/cgi during the fight scene sucked. Plus, Msyo got messed up too many times I can't believe one move beat the other dude.

To me, I thought Q would have been a better Asset.

Really interesting with the midas money thing...wonder what the effects of it are (although that guy did say nothing will happen...)

The OP and ED is pretty nice. I like the songs a lot. Really sorta suits the animation.

Don't have problems with the fight scene. More Q and Mashu is just appealing. :D

More facts from the Financial District and about this Midas Money circulating in the real world is interesting.

Well I don't mind CGI too in this anime, really like the storyline and music in it.

Yeah Midas Money I wonder if something around this world with happend, haha if such a world exists you will become rich in no time.

Normal? I would glad to be part of Deal and make some more money, that's make the life a lot easier.

Overall: 8/10

I dunno how to feel about that CGI. I like the fact that they're trying to use it more, but I'm just so... not used to it. And it could definitely be better.

I had no hope for this show when I first started it. I hadn't even planned on watching it. But I'm glad I am. It's entertaining me a lot so far. And dat Masakaki. Creepy dude popping up out of nowhere.

Wow, the horrible cgi renditions. They look absolutely fucking horrible.
At first I was like "woah, this guy got the hang of this pretty quickly", but no, he didn't, he was pretty helpless.
Well anyway, at least the OP/ED are good. And I hope they'll actually get somewhere with this.
Protip: I don't really check the forums anymore, so if you want something, take it on my profile.
Is it time for my long-awaited return to the forums? щ(゚Д゚щ) Nope™, probably not.

Mashu's personality kinda surprised me. For some reason I thought she would be more timid.

The battle sequence was a little weird to me, but it was an enjoyable episode :3

Mashu seems like she'll be a lot of fun. Thank goodness for very little Hanabi this ep. I wonder if Yoga's dad was an Entrepreneur too or if Mikuni just knows about it because of the report he read.

Mmhmm, they probably take away people's money when they lose the game and go bankrupt and inject money when people win a deal.

Showing some fantastic financial deals in some other world stock market as yugi-oh fights doesn't seem like a nice thing to me. But hoping there is some other kind of plot except all that.

Btw i want my bank card to come with a sexy girl inside it too. Now that's priceless.

Interesting. No idea where they're gonna go from here so that's pretty cool.

I like the fact that the battles aren't the important part of the show.

Extremely low budget animation and everything lol. Not that I mind so long as the show remains being as awesome as it has been so far.

Sorry but isn't that exactly the opposite? Inflation is unstoppable now because all the money we have are issued by a central bank and every dollar or euro or whatever, is being given as a dept with interest to the government. So the government basically borrows money to create money and to pay the debt back since all money are controlled by one institution it has to borrow even more by the same guy it wants to pay(stupid i know) and then even more and the endless circle goes on with inflation rising and rising.
The inflation happens not because more money are pumped to the market but because those money are debt with interest.
So if some anonymous party put money in the market that are not loan to the government and people, then the market will grow free of it's necessity to borrow even more to pay back the debt because now not all money in existence are in the hands of the one big creditor so there are money to give him that he actually doesn't control and don't have to be borrowed money again.

This show is seriously exceeding what I expected....

Comments on ep 2 of [Insert phrase here]



Overall: It was a rather interesting episode, with some info on the Fiancial District revealed along with the fact that the Midas money is actually being used normally in the Real World.
Overall Score: 5/5

Judging by what Masakaki said....I've a slight feeling we'll have 1 battle for every episode . _ .

I thought the fight was a bit weak. One of those stereotypical "hero gets crap beaten until one randomly introduced supermove is enough to takes out the stronger opponent" fights. Hopefully that improves down the line because I really love the thematics of the show.
