This was unexpectedly brutal but surprisingly good. The insert songs weren't bad either. Episode 1 gave me high hopes for this anime.

Main character tries to save little girl
Main character leads little girl into the middle of a gang of noise and instead of retreating jumps into the river.
Main character carries girl on her back and then falls landing so the little girl takes the blunt of the fall.
Main character moves to a roof where they will be screwed and easily cornered.
Main character proceeds to throw little girl at hard concrete floor.

WORST SAVIOR EVER. I mean hell, if the noise don't kill that little girl the Main character will.
I feel you. Yeah. I facepalmed at that too.

Can't believe they killed Kanade in the first ep, thought she was going to be the lead, oh well, as along as they don't kill Tsubasa as well, Mizuki Nana is the reason I picked this up ~w~

Anyways, seems quite interesting, never expected I'd like it this much, can't wait for the next ep *w*

The first episode of this anime, in my opninon, was like a condensed version of the entire Puella Magi Madoka Magica series. Lol, even at one point I thought Kyubey would just show up or appear in the background . . .

It's beautiful and the music is spelendid! This is seriously worth watching seeing as though a new trend of darker magical girl is surfacing, I just hope its not going to be a redundant genre, though.

Nice sequence of events, it really takes things out of context and over-simplifies them to hell.
It was a blind corner so not being able to see if there's enemies there is to be expected, swimming across the river was a retreat.
The main character fell flat on her face. The girl on her back was saved from most of that impact.
There was no throwing of anyone to the ground. Both characters collapsed from exhaustion after climbing the ladder to the roof.


I wasn't planning on watching this show but I came across it. It is like a strange cross between Gurren Lagann and PreCure. I can stick with it and see what happens when the other shoe drops.

I was not expecting what I just saw. It reminded me of Madoka (but why would that be a bad thing?) but even MAL suggested it because I liked Madoka.

A tad confused to see the main character being "Dead", but then after the flashbacks they go to the "present" time and she's alive. I must have read something wrong. All it leaves me knowing is that she's going to die, which is alright by me. I have a niche spot in my heart for when main characters do the right thing and end up dying in the process (so sick of all the "Happy ending, everyone lives!" scenarios).

Magical Girl, gore, violence, beautiful environments.....I cannot wait for the next episode. Also, Mizuki Nana. :3

It's almost as if she wasn't a savior at all, but rather just another civilian who happened to pick up a child during her panicked flight from the murderous hordes.

Good songs, I thought of Ar Tonelico immediately, wasn't too interested at first, annoying lead, but the berserk smile at the end was awesome, thinking she'll go berserk, but then will nearly hurt the little girl, and be afraid of her power...

So... the best anime of this season? The first episode sure did look jolly good and promising - if the series keeps it up, it will certainly become one of the better things of the year.
That's what happens when Muv-Luv meets TWEWY and some mecha series. Let us just hope that it's not gonna be the same as it was with Guilty Crown. Starts with a huge bang, and then... right, we all know what happens then.

5/5 for this episode.

Surprisingly, I watched it and most of all, enjoyed it. That being said, I guess I'll continue watching, but, without any expectations. I can kind of already guess where this is going, so I won't expect too much out of this anime. Looking forward to the next!

Yeah, no, that was way too weird. The characters seemed too one dimensional for my taste.

I won't be sticking around with this one. Dropped and not even adding to my list.

lol I 'm worried about the "plot".

Nice musics, actions and visuals, but i hope they don't sweep the plot under the rug. Fingers crossed.

Oh, wow, that surprised me. This was so much better than I thought it'd be. They didn't explain anything at all, but I guess that'll come in time. And I don't like the fights, with all the singing and attack names. Otherwise, I don't think I had any problems with this.

Nice episode. I'm really looking forward to the next one. ^^

Plot? Even if they screw up the plot they can fall back to stunning visuals, action, and MUSIC.

I don't know either but I liked it lol

I watched this anime just because Mizuki Nana was in the staff but O.O I regret nothing.

If I hadn't already know that this was the first episode I wouldn't have noticed because t was kind of confusing but I'll continue watching it :D

Another nice surprise. This really does have a Madokaesque vibe to it--almost like the first three episodes wrapped up into one. Here's hoping they can keep it up all season.

It was surprisingly good. Hopefully it doesn't disappoint like Guilty Crown, which started well but then got worse.

The Noise, they just creep up out of the blue with little warning......

That's the part of the story I'm having a hard time wrapping my old-man brain around!
(Well, that and which flavored JELL-O pudding to have for desert tonight.)

Maybe they will explain more about "The Noise" before start I investing my time and
emotional effort into watching this only to find out........IT WAS ALL JUST A DREAM!!!
(......or some other TROLL-type crap like that!!)

If that happens I'm gonna hop on a flight to Japan
and go all SCORCHED EARTH ON SOMEBODY'S A$$!!!!
(I think I made that threat in another MAL forum....but this time I really mean it.....as soon as I get my name off that no-fly list.)

Err, do you know who Mizuki Nana is? I think she's the last person in Japan who needs any sort of "help" with her singing career.

LOL Damn right!

I really hate the idea "OMG we need Mizuki Nana to sing in our anime!"
I don't dislike her but when it became too many of them it turned into the same character in a little different show.

The only thing that could turn this show into something at least interesting is to keep Hibiki as the big boss.

And my good those solider are still using those kind of gun when their tech already reached that far? And even after the world about to reach the end they still haven't realized that bullet has no effect on Noise?

Not quite sure myself, but I think after the opening they show what happened before she died

I found this rather painful to watch and I found some of the dialogues embarrassingly bad. However, it sure was mind-blowing... in a way. But it was better than I expected it to be, considering the plot.

I was not impressed by the first episode. It felt rushed. I'm not familiar with any of the terminology and the show does not seem eager to share.
Plus for a show so reliant on music the singers are surprisingly mediocre.
I plan to keep watching, but I'm not eagerly awaiting episode 2.

I am also still a bit confused by the opening sequence.

The terminology seemed pretty self explanatory to me. Noise is the things that kill you, that one word seemed to be some kind of crystal and the other weird one was probably referring to whatever was happening to Hibiki at the moment. Don't know where all this confusion stems from.
