THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
----------------------------------------
That was pretty cool. I'm not too fond of the animal characters but the humans are all pretty interesting. Including the ones in the OP. I liked the fights, too. Looked like they were animated better than the fights in your average RPG-game > anime port.

It is subbed. Not by a pro group and the subtitles are not stylized but I spotted only two little typos and it was good enough.

The first ep was pretty cool. I like the music so far, and the animation style is interesting. I'm definitely looking forward to more.

All I have to say is this anime sound more like crazy, crazy,crazy and nuts! Who would want to destroy the world???? In anime many but when I think about reality I get scary and possible. Good thing there are animals cause imagine if they made it realistic looking sorta of like that anime Blue Drop near the end. Weird artifact to destroy world...looks like monster?

I was a bit disappointed with the inconsistent animation (especially during the sacrifice part) and also that the show is quite a bit more kiddy than I thought even after seeing the little stuffed animal guy. At least it's only 13 episodes and it was still decently entertaining so I'll stick with it.

I liked it, nothing groundbreaking but it seems fun. Just a bit of a twist to the normal formula of quests, that makes it interesting enough for me.

An amusing episode one.
I'll keep this one up. The soundtrack is great. I loved the VAs and the character interactions. There was some good comedy in it and the fight scenes were well choreographed.
Only real minus was the animation quality consistency. The quality was great at times, but wierd at others.
I wonder if this'll get more serious later on.

I thought it was fun enough not to be bored. Art/animation is good too, and their quest seems like it's going to be fun too. A group of heroes trying to destroy the world instead of saving it? oO?

The destruction of the world has to do with that monster in the black ball. Just one thing you should ask yourself.....can they kill off that thing or black ball??? The world salvation committee does not look too strong to do anything the way I see it.

The first episode was good.Funny ,great Soundtracks and good action with good animated fight scenes.
I like the human characters but I don´t like the beast characters (except the Bear =P)
And the idea of destroying the world instead of saving the world is kind of cool ,too.

It was pretty good for a first episode. I like how the main character is a goofball who ends up on the antagonist's side. The voice acting was awesome (Maaya Sakamoto and Mamoru Miyano FTW!) and so was the soundtrack. I actually found the beastmen to be more interesting than the humans. Sure, the show may not be in depth and complex, but it looks like it's going to be one action-packed helluva time!

eventhough these animal`s forms were getting on the nerves, the main characters were nicely done. Just hope ep 2 keeps the same pace and I`ll be happy :)

i didnt like it much, the begining was nice, and when the fake beast-ear fell down on the ground, it was kinda entertaining, made me chuckle a bit ^^ but thats all, towards the end i was about to be defeated to my sleep xD, well i actually might have been dozing off right that moment, cant recall well ^^

Weird animation. All the human characters look cool, while the animal characters more have something like a Samurai Pizza Cat or One Piece animation. I like the seiyuu and it has some pretty good names in it. Still, it doesn't feel that serious as I expected. Yet.

I watched a HD sub by Osu!

Anyway, nice first episode. Nice animation and action scenes as expected from Production I.G.
I also didn't like the animal aliens theme, but I can bear with it.
This seems kind of unique and kind of deja vu.

Though it's pretty funny how more and more ppl are getting involved with the plan to destroy the world by chance.

The beginning was awesome. That was one of the best jumps into a cool OP this year.

I will keep watching this.

really, really like the OP song.. Trance-ish.
The animation was pretty good, I just want the story to pick up a little more..
I lol'd at the typo I saw. "Havn't" instead of "haven't" (still looks funny XD)
Morte looks like Nadi from El Cazador.

I am so fucking sick of hearing Miyano Mamoru's voice! He never changes it and he sounds the same for all of his parts. Ugh. CAST SOMEONE ELSE FOR THE MALE LEAD NEXT TIME. Ruins it for me every time.

That aside...
<osu!> Fucking furries!111!
lol my thoughts too.

Apart from the furries....it was entertaining and I liked the OP.
The episode felt like it was only 10 minutes long, which is always a good thing.
The two characters that show up next episode look a lot cooler than Morte and what's his face, so I'm excited about them.

I liked it, and it seems like I'll enjoy this series. I like the whole beastman theme, and the concept of destroying the world rather than saving it is pretty interesting.

Looking forward to more ^^.

AMURO!!!!! W000t THERES AMURO in the cast! (aka Kuma but AMUROOOOO)

So, it was surprisingly good :D

Kirie shall destroy the world, and then become the god of the new world. I can imagine him laughing at the deaths of ppls with the destruct code in his hand.

Oh, how the destruct code works: Write someone's name in it and they will die. Why? Check the credits :P

Sorry, Seiyuu joke >.>

Either that or he goes "I am a Gundam" and the Code turns into a Gundam and blows the world up (another Seiyuu joke lol)

So Kirie is impossibly adorable. A lot having to do with Mamo-chan, but especially with the cat ears<333 *o* Cat ears can easily wiggle a character into a fangirl's heart~ And his name. I simply love it.

Picture~


infinite_zero said:

Kirie seems a bit too innocent for both those theories XD
And the main chick is Juliet! How cute! ^o^ (Took me like half the episode to finally realize it XD) She seems like a really cool character. And Kuma's somewhat cute too, kuma.

I think I'll keep watching this anime. The plot seems interesting enough. The action scenes are great; I loved the song(s) they were playing during the action scenes, so I'm sure the OST will be wonderful. The whole animal thing is a bit bizarre all I could think was 'furries! o.o', but I think I might be able to get used to it.

But one last thing...

...man!Kallen? =O I can't be the only who saw that!

The art/animation are great and the music by Yoshihiro Ike is terrific. I liked the action scenes and the humour too but I'm still doubtful about the concept of the show. I'll watch the next few episodes to be sure but the plot seems strange to me at the moment.

I decided to give this series a try just from its name, and I must say I wasn't disappointed. It's not amazing, but it's a decent first episode with a great OP, and good animation, although the beastmen look weird. I also like that even if Kyrie is a wuss, it looks like he has the potential to destroy the world.

Looks like this is gonna be an interesting series.

The first episode was great, lots of action, some humour here and there and animation was okay. On the whole, this is only 13 episodes so I'll keep watching it. However, they should have chosen different name instead of Kirie, because after playing DMC 4 I don't want to be reminded of the god-awful scream of Nero.
