and Ririchiyo is 16 years old...Seriously?? looks like a 9 years old girl with boobs, which is disgusting..
Impossible, 9 year olds don't have breasts like that even. They are truly flat. Rare exception occurred. 9 year old are not tall like that too at all. Not sure how you think she is except for appearance only but still her height is not = to a 9 year old.
Kids develop pretty fast these days and there are some that are already in there puberty at that age.
For some reason the age where children go into puberty starts at a earlier age then they did 100 years ago there was a article about it in a famous science magazine a few years ago.
Which mentioned that 100 years ago the age when puberty started was around 14 or 15 years of age on average while nowadays it's 11 or 12 on average.
And there are off course exceptions of 9 years olds some ever at a earlier age.
I even saw a news article in the summer about a girl of 10 giving birth.


So you're saying that at if Ririchiyo was 9 that she would be even more odd because most girls don't develop breasts at that age. A girl beginning her menstrual cycle and a girl developing breasts both are part of puberty but are two separate events, try to no over associate them.

Was cute at first, but my mind was 'confuse O_-' at the unexpected magical/wolf/thing part.

The animation was pretty good. That girl really likes to act bold if she's blowing off a bishie, hah. Anyway, let's see how this series turn out.

Damn, the Kuroshitsuji vibes from this is impossible to ignore. I found myself laughing uncontrollably at several parts in the show, it was really enjoyable. I like how in several scenes they turn the characters into chibis, so cute!

The op was better than I expected, since I didn't like it in the trailer. Can't wait for the next ep.

I’m just trying to be okay. Some days it’s harder than others. I hide away the most real parts of myself from everyone else. The emotions that I try to escape from. The constant pain I feel. The nightmares that keep me awake at night.

It hurts sometimes... knowing that the world is continuing happily all around me while I continue to drown in alcohol and slowly die inside myself.

I think you got something wrong here.
The part of the 10 year old giving birth was a example of how young some children reach puberty.
I didn't specifically mention the start of the menstrual cycle nor the development of breasts i mentioned puberty which could be both but could also be one of them or all the other things that come with puberty.
I also mentioned the word kids and did't point out a specific gender except for the example in my last sentence.

I said the average age not specific age so a child can go into puberty at the age of 9 but they can also go into puberty at the age of 15.
I didn't mention anything about Ririchiyo.
What i do have to say about her is that she doesn't look particularly young to me she looks her age it's just that she has a small stature.
And what if her breasts aren't big most women don't have big breasts just look around you when your in a train station or other public building.
I think people are just being deluded her after watching to much Anime.

I was waiting for this and I have to say that my expectations became real...:)
Very good animetion, soundrack, voices and of course Ririchiyo's tsundere personality
I couldn't but lol every time Soushi's face start to sparkle and the ears and a tail of a dog would appear!!!
It's a 8/10 for me...

fanservice.

THe girl reminds me of Taiga. Still, I wanted to know what kind of ayakashi she is.
Good episode, but I don't really see what will happen in the following episodes :O
Since I have no expectation, I hope it'll be good :D


I agree, my first thoughts were of Taiga, but I like how the show looks.

I had no idea about the powers, that was kind of a surprise, but it looks like a decent show.

Really? People like Soushi? He's CREEPY!

Ok, Good Stuff: The main character is great, she's only existed for one episode and she's already got a fairly complex personality, she's cold hearted, but its because she doesnt want to get close to anyone, she doesn't want to hurt people, so she keeps them at a distance and hurts them as little as possible early on. She's a pretty good protagonist. The animation here is also very nice, although a little simplistic, it switches fairly well from the chibified look to the more long limbed, traditional Shoujo look and its very sleek and smoth.

Now the Bad, My two main (and only significant) problems with this episode are as follows: First and foremost, Soushi comes off to me as incredibly creepy, I'm sure itll be explained later, but thats a disturbingly obsessed dude, ick. Second, I dont like the added element at the end, it came totally out of nowhere (Yes I know what Ayakashi means, still I expected it to mean metaphorically) and I dont know why they felt to add it in? Why couldnt it have just been about this girl and this bodyguard? Whats the point of the added element?

Overall though, this was OK, I like it more than another show I'm continuing with, so I'll carry on with this too

Added element? it's a main theme of the anime, it's like saying that mechas are an added element to Evangelion... geez.

Though I do agree about Soushi's obsession being on disturbing levels... I mean, it would be a good thing if he was just teasing about dying if he couldn't serve her, but I think he was literally dead serious.

Soushi is a zealous fanatic and that's... well, very bad.

Obviously has not seen Guilty Crown.

EDIT: Wait, you have? LOL.


Oh and Guilty Crown is relevant to this thread because?

Back to Inu X Boku SS. I am pleasantly surprised. The art was beautiful as was the animation. The bodyguards eyes are cool :3

Will continue checking this out. Not expecting anything groundbreaking though.

Being that its only the Pilot episode i thought the show did a good job at introducing the characters a bit, im not going to make a final judgement on the show until it ends but im pretty excited for whats to come.

Hmm, I would disagree in the same way that I'd disagree that the main theme of Eva is mecha. A theme is a topic the work wants to talk about. Mechas and, fuck it, the whole demon thing, are elements. And I don't think that this should have been an action show, this would have worked much better if it was just a drama about the main characters learning to live with eachother and getting to know themselves and the other characters. Of course that's all opinion, and I still liked the show, I just think the actiony elements were dumb.

Wasn't sure what to expect about this anime, but wow it turned out great. The art is wonderful and the animation was well done. The characters are all so freaking awesome as well. Great start.

So they are all youkais, hmm cool. Lol holy shit that cute Karuta turns into a huge skeleton, wow. I love her pink hair and weird personality. :d Good seiyuu too, Kana. That Renshou guy is a scroll?

Ririchiyo is sooo cute lol I like her tsunshun personality. Good job in introducing her in this episode. Soushi is awesome, haha love it when he goes all sparkle and acts like a dog. Damn these two makes it hilarious at times. Looking forward to moreee.

Fine, theme was not the correct word. Still, my point is that it's not added but clearly part of the original concept. Whether the concept itself is wrong or not is a different matter.

Anyway, I wouldn't worry much about the action, I don't think there will be much since it's classified as a mystery.

This was pretty decent, but I just hope it goes somewhere with the story. I really don't care for the butler character yet, but more-so I really can't stand that stereotypical "I'm obsessed with girls" type females that always want to molest/own the female characters for comedy or fanservice, it's just so annoying.

I have a feeling I will like this series very much! c:
When I started watching it, I didn't really look into what it was about; I just knew it was about a girl and her servant. When all the cool magic stuff happened, that was just the icing on the cake. It was so unexpected for me & that aspect makes it super interesting and fun to watch!
I love Kuroshitsuji and, until I read some of the posts that compared this to that show, I didn't even see the connection at all. But now that I do I have a feeling a will love it so much!

Why on earth did they add ecchi to this? When I heard that they were animating the manga, I really hoped to see a good romantic shoujo on screen. But they turned it into another dumb ecchi comedy, good grief!

I really don't know if they wanted to attract male audience to shoujo by inserting ecchi... But they certainly lost me as their female audience.

Ok....so who was saying this anime is not worth of time...

Great animation.Actually I think anime ver. makes everything more clearer than the manga one,not that I don't like that.Soushi's eye could use a bit of alternation,he looks more boyish in manga while in anime he looks more like a man in early 30s due to this..

This probably won't happen but I'm hoping for some real character development from the characters and that they will Change slowly over the progress of the story as it has hinted.

Something tells me I'll be very disappointed...

GORGEOUS animation. Will watch! :D

Anyone got Kuroshitsuji vibes? Except I prefer this 'butler' over Sebastian, because to me Sebastian was a statue (Apologize to all people who like him ^^; I don't hate him, I just thought he was rather emotionless...)

Anyway, WILL DEFINITELY stick to this :D

So I'm not the only one who got that feeling :) Well, Sebby was sure emotionless, and that was one of the reasons I liked him.

wow that little bitch had the cutest outfits. i think i will merely enjoy this show but i don't think it will be on the top of my watch list. i was really bored up until the end of the episode and then i kind of started fangirling. >.< i couldn't help it - i lovelovelove men with ears!!! they're so fantastic. however i usually like unique features like 2 different colored eyes but on this dog i fidn't appreciate his eyes at all. they were awkward. however i felt the same about black butler in the beginning as well (bored as fuck) but i did end up loving that beauty. damn - i miss little sebastion. i should really get around to watching season two because of how much i miss him.

this show felt so shoujo like inuyasha, not that it's a bad thing but just that I'm a little misinformed. I guess time to stop watching. It's looks pretty good though, if you're into that sort of thing, even though the girl was sort of emo.

7/10.

Tell me how many show with Youkai theme and their masters always ended up protected by their servants
not to mention their master is absolutely pussy

now how many show with Youkai theme and their master can actually do something?
not to mention that you won't see loli oni everyday :3

PS: any1 know the day of this anime aired?

Eh. It's nice and well-animated but the story seems shallow to me. The 'dog' annoys me. He's like Sebas-chan lawlz. Never really liked these kinds of shows much but I still want to watch it.

This was boring the whole way. The bit where they just suddenly threw in all this supernatural stuff out of the blue was terrible. I can see the appeal for 12 year old girls, though.

I can already see what the next 5+ episodes are going to be like. All with the same recycled content of the guy being submissive and the girl being tsun about it. The same lame chibi humour thrown in.

The opening however, was awesome. I'll remember this anime as one with a cool opening.

Dropped.

Ririchiyo is actually very likable so far.
She's a little too flat-chested, but Okazaki Tomoya as a dog would be great.

Though it's still pretty fun, wtf was that "Leg scene"? XD

Hoo.... I'm not even sure if I can be bothered watching another episode. For whatever reason, I found this first one TERRIBLE. It technically should've ticked all the boxes, but instead I find it cliche and boring.
Guess coming here straight after watching an episode of Duradura!! wasn't a great plan.
I'll try watching another episode to see if it gets better

- EDIT-

Ok I finished the series. My score moved from a 2 up to a 4 or 5 around the half way point. The last 2 episodes moved it up to a 7. I'd probably recommend watching it just the last part.

Why is he acting like a butler especially in the morning when he's supposed to be security only...unless he's jack of all trades, of course. XD
