it wasn't that bad. I guess the game is better. i'm not sure what to say at this point, so i'll have to wait until the april broadcast. I'm a huge fan of the game. the art quality seems a little inconsistent at some points of the episode

That was... disappointing. I can see it as pretty good as a game, but the transitions in the anime between scenes was horrible... the animation was MEH, and the introduction of characters... was lame.

I liked when Mahiro was like "TAKUMA" and tried to beat him up every time he felt insulted because he didn't hit girls. That was funny. I can see comedy coming from Yuichi's sleeping habit as well... but I don't really like any of the guys. :(

The girl... is annoying... really annoying...

And it seemed rushed... and when she was attacked in the beginning, it was lame and wasn't exciting. :/

I want to hear the opening and ending. The hosts said the OP lyrics were based on the anime, so I'm excited to hear it.

I will watch a few more episodes, but I think it'll probably get dropped.

it wasn't too bad. yeah some scenes were a little rushed. The game is so much better than this! what did Deen do to my yuuichi? his design looked a little inconsistent compared to the other guys.

i prefer tamaki over chizuru though tamaki was bitchy in the game.

o-chan was so adorable

wanted to punch mitsuru in the face (if you played the game then you will know what i'm talking about)

I actually liked it and the OP song is great. Kasuga is cute and I rofl every time Mashiro is insulted and is compelled to hit Takuma cause he doesn't hit girls.

I think it's an ok start. At least the story seems interesting.

Namikawa-san's character is so cute!!

The final guardian hasn't appeared yet, right? I'm looking forward to see him.

Edit (w. official airing one): wow at preview... I actually got shocked at that guy's monologue).

Edit: It also occurred to me later on that the main female character LOOKS JUST LIKE San Seto from "Seto no Hanayome"

I think it was the translator's fault that O-chan became a girl.

And aren't there six guardians, not five?

Deen, I hate to say this but I'm counting on you! Please, oh PLEASE let the DVDs/blurays sell well....pretty please.

Well, my intake?

Um...first of....I hate Takuma's voice. :/ sorry takuma fans. I can't stand it. he sounds like some ossan to me.

Second, TOO RUSHED! :/

Much too rushed. I hope it won't be this rushed for the whole anime.

Tamaki: I like her. I like her spunky attitude. :D

Takuma: Ossan. Nuff said. sorry

Mahiro: he's gonna be one of my fave for comedy.

Suguru: Mmm....gotta see more to tell.

Yuuchi: I think I'm only gonna like this guy and Ryu.

Overall. not bad but not good either for a start. But...I'm praying Deen, praying you don't mess this up. PLEASE!

Hopefully a decent fansub group will choose to sub this. I have high expectations regardless whatever you all think. Judging a series from 1st episode, I obviously can't trust your judgment based on that!

Annoying that you can't address the characters properly only by their voice actors names. It's a good memory practice to learn the characters names and write the names down in your comments. Are you lazy?

If this heroine becomes half as annoying as Miaka, I wont stand it.

I really think the best reverse harem anime we will get this year is Arcana famiglia, at least it has a strong heroine.

... Yes, I'm too lazy to pause and check the list while watching the anime. I start typing for comments while I watch, and most of things I watch is live-stream, which I cannot pause it.

so can someone clear something up for me?
Was this first episode a standalone episode just like a preview? That the real anime starts in April? Or is this the real first episode and the second one will be released in April? I would really appreciate the confirmation.

This is the actual first episode of the series. The second episode is aired in April. So yeah one more month of waiting for more bishies galore :P.

The heroine seems alright so far. Hope she takes the initiative instead of waiting for the guys to rescue her all the time *ahem Isanami from Brave 10 ahem* and remains sassy in dangerous situations :).

Oh was I the only one who burst out laughing at the hot pot scene and thought "Gintama!" since Onizuka is voiced by a certain Gintama seiyuu? XD

Should I say I'm impressed? This tells you are using the hard approach so you can post 1st in every damn show episode of every season. Also this tells you have a bad memory as you can't write after finishing watching an episode. You write when an episode is being streamed and never bother to learn characters names! Never thought of changing that approach so you get an easier life? I don't know about others, I finish an episode maybe the same day or any other day after I feel like writing about it or not!

Its was alright then again first episodes are usually not as good as future episodes, but if it turns out to be bad at least I got some hot guys and a cute little fox to look at.

4/5 I liked it. My favorite is the guy who falls asleep easily anyplace and anywhere even while standing up if I wasn't so clumsy I could fall asleep standing up too. xD

I really don't get what you tried to imply there. This anime seemed 'okay' for a reverse harem. Reverse harem are usually pretty bad. The only reverse harem I ever came to love was and probably will remain the only one: Ouran Koukou Host Club.

Sorry if I am being a bit too harsh here, I am a big fan of shoujo anime but reverse harem shows are just ewww~ And most of the male roles in there are plain retards.

I still watch them for lolz :D

Your ossan is one of the most popular seiyuu ever. I don't give a cent what you think of Takuma or his fans, but unfortunately, Ossan is ranked 8th in MAL and duly too.

lolz yea I know he's popular. he's voiced a lot of people. But I never liked his voice in any of his roles. D: Sniff. Dunno why.

I'm not a big fan of harems either. Be it reverse harem or harem most of em are yuck....but, what can I do? Do they animate good shoujo like dengeki daisy, kanojo wa uso ai shigeteru? Noooo! Idiots......but that's the world. :/

I never expect much from reverse harem anime and watch them only to drool over hot bishies. In that department it was ok, if they make animation a bit smoother it may be better to look at although it's not bad to begin with. I agree with others that it seems rushed and are some flawed things here and there, hopefully they will perfect it before April.
Surprisingly as for now main heroin isn't too annoying although she accepts everything without much questioning, but well, it's for bishies not plunge-into-character-emotional-and-mental-depths-to-explore-it-thoroughly kind of thing.

Not sure what to expect from this anime, at least I have no expectations since I haven't read the manga or played the game :l

The girl seems cute and the story line seems interesting enough.
Will continue watching.. until I find a reason not to x.x

That was...okay.

To be honest, Sugita was pretty weak as Takuma. I expected something Gintoki-esque or deep like Raven within his character.

And it's nice to see Ringo from Penguindrum as the lead again.

LOL irony.

Made especially hilarious in that you target me instead of the one actually bashing her for her posts, and all I did was state a fact that anyone with eyes could easily observe.

Yes you could say that I'm bashing. She might get hurt, but a lot of people like her should start realizing being obsessive cannot help to lead better life in the future. Getting hurt because of others words is the best experience to think more about life. If you ever be able to translate the negativity people giving you into positivity, you have a good soul.

If you're talking to me, my post was directed entirely at octal9. I don't have a problem with what you said.

But if your post was directed at him, too, then you're totally wasting your time.

I don't mind when something is cliche if it is done well, so far there is nothing to look forward to in this series and no indication that it will be any better than more established titles. Will watch a couple more and drop if it does not get better...
