THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
----------------------------------------
Wow, this Anime is pretty weird.
Normally I don't like CG Anime.
But here it's different. The cute art is win.

Well, I have watched it right now.

After half of it I was ready to drop it, but than it became amazing.

Though overall it's not my thing.

But since it's only 3 eps, I might as well watch and wait.

Impressive Cel CG style, like .Hack, this one also contains many unusual and cool effects.
Many elements design are very interesting too. Can't wait for episode 2.

It looks a little loli and on top of that there is Polish name insertion, which is rare. The CG is good yeah, story interesting enough for me and pretty interesting powers.
Oops! I appear to be incapable of following Rules 16 and 17, so I had to have a mod change my sig for me.

It sure was weird, not half bad though. Refreshing, and CG was quite nice most of the time. Also, Maria Skłodowska-Curie voiced by Noto Mamiko = pure win.

"Women rely on their beauty".
LAME.

This anime episode would have been so much better without that lame little quote.
I think it was that older chick. And she fails in my mind for doing so.
I hate that peacocking gender role. And I hate when women partake in it so blatantly especially.
THANK YOU YOU DUMB BITCH I HATE YOU NOW.

Other than that though this episode was perfect.
Lolis. Cute lolis. Mysterious lolis. LOLIS IN SPACE.

And that ending was surprisingly epic.
It was like "Yessss! I will reflect! WHO THE HELL DO YOU THINK I AM?!?"

Very majestic. Very cute. Superior use of CG. Fun story.
I do believe I like this show.

Old avatar and sig retired for now.

This was strange...yet at the same time not nearly as horrible as it looked like it would be starting out. If it was an entire series I probably wouldn't be able to stand it, but a few OVAs should keep me from reaching my limit of disgustingly cute and allow me to enjoy this.

I am not very fond of CG, but I think I can stand that since it's so cute >^<

It think it's worth watching, I just wished they didn't throw in the unecessary kissing scenes. I am completely fine withouth shoujo-ai fanservice.

I guess the word "dull" has been created for this anime. Really, really average first episode, I didn't like the characters nor the direction, so I won't watch the next etwo episodes...

In every age, in every place, the deeds of men remain the same.

Don't really class these CG wire-frame modeling "Animations" as Anime. This one was alright even though. A little too busy.

That was like watching a never-ending video game cut-scene. The kind that doesn't let you skip it and by the end of which has you begging to the gods to finally let take control already. Undeniably cute characters, though.

Well, already watched a third of it, might as well finish.

Hahaha, that's what I was thinking.
This was my first CG anime.. I never really took interest in them because I could never get used to the artwork, but the cuteness kept me going. Not bad.

That was kinda 'meh'. Not really impressed.
It was cute nonetheless.
