That was a funny episode, but a little confusing. I guess I need to get to know the characters a little better.

Wasn't that great of a first episode, but hopefully it gets better later on

I was expecting much more and something... different. But it was still an alright first episode. Of course, my expectations remain high, and I hope this lives up to all the hype.

I liked the first episode. It kept you guessing on what will happen to Sousuke.

Very interesting.

Because of how popular it is, I decided to start this series. The first episode was a bit different then I first envisioned this series would be like, but maybe it changes as it goes on.

Anyway, Sousuke already seems to be a very likable character, so I look forward to seeing what kinds of situations he gets into.

Don't really know what to think about this episode I liked it and it was funny but it was still a bit blah.

I liked it. Nothing really special about it. This means I have to watch more because the basic plot isn't original....

Weird, this episode was better than I remembered it. It went really fast.

Not really in my style, but okay. The Kamui cosplayer seems alright. Hopefully things will improve a lot from this episode. Blond guy is really annoying, though.

Sousuke's never used a condom for it's true purpose? Wow!

Not a bad start. I feared it was going to be a generic Gundam clone at the start but the school setting and humour looks like a good contrast to the serious parts.

Re watching this series for the third time, never ceases to amuse me. It's a pity they haven't done another sequel with one of the light novels.

Well we can just sit and hope.

Had it in mind to rewatch this for a while, and the first episode convinced me it was worth it.

The opening scene is ambiguous; was Souskue rescuing that woman or merely abducting her? Drugging someone is a good idea if you're taking them by force, but she seemed mentally unstable and it might have been a mercy.

I don't like how Kaname is clearly very interested in Sousuke from the get-go. It's an overstated and boring start to a romance story. A more sensible thing to do would be for her to apparently hate him then surprise Sousuke and the audience by declaring him interesting. So basically just the episode as it is without the scene where the braid-girl teases Kaname about being into him so much.

I don't remember it has such godly graphic. Nice comedic effect. All tones from past~

I rarely enjoy the first episode of any new anime but I can see there could be some potential here.

Will give it a few episodes to see.

A pretty good start, I didn't expect this to have a highschool setting.
Mainly watching this to get to the third season done by Kyoto.

I'm not sure which character I enjoy most in this. Souske with his social ineptitude, or Chidori with her paper fan of death.

Condom = Water Bottle

... There is something in me screaming that I'd rather dehydrate.

Sousuke's introduction was funny :D

Condom can be used as water bottle? Uh...
