Main character has a fear for people to the extend that his face changes. And Haru's miracles with fishes!!

OP is cool.

Very nice place near the sea (island near Yokohama). Haru's been traveling alone and he came suddenly to the main character and his mother's house (Haru's not so annoying as the PV was shown).

lol~ Haru's fishing that main guy!! And he wants to be his friend! Megane prince, and good at fishing, too? and helping out with the main character's mother's shop??

Haru has a magical water gun that controls people?

Main character's grandmother is Fumi Hirano (Rum)? Such a young an nice grandmother.

Saving the world thing?

ED is nice~

(lol @ the "preview" part at Sakamichi no Apollon using a scene from ep.1)

Yuki has communication problems, feelining like he drowns when talking to other peolpe. I like it, because I thought he was going to be an antisocial emo character - not disappointed at all. His faces are funny.

Haru doesn't know how to talk very well (Boku! Haru! Uchuujin!) he's funny especially when close to Yuki. And he LOVES fishing.

She's not his mom, she's his grandmother.

This was really fun to watch, I really want episode 2 right now. Uki's desings are pretty cool.

OP is cool. I liked the ED.

Now I want to eat some fish...

It looks gorgeous, Yuki has serious social issues, Haru is definitely an alien but it's unreal that he is going to live with Yuki just like that and I hope the girl is part of the main cast.

I love the distinctive artstyle and especially the design of the buildings.
There is an addicting quirkiness to this anime, partly because of the aforementioned aspects but also the BGM and the vibrant colours but mainly because of the characters.

What a coincidence that both Noitamina shows this season start off with a student transferring to another city, in both cases individuals who have difficulties to fit in a new environment and dealing with their peers.

Out of the recent shows this feels like a cross between Kimi to Boku and Danshi Koukousei. Probably because it's the same voices.
I like the bright animation.

Sugita with a duck named Tapioca. Instant win.

Weird one
really bizarre - both on visual and plot levels
but I really like the animation and backgrounds, they have certain climate

characters - they are fine, ok a bit irritating Yuki but he may get better
and of course grandma, with certain weird ideas but she is likable :)

This was one of my most awaited series this season.

Enjoying it very much so far, so vibrant and colorful. Haru seems to be a fun character and oh man Yuki. Looks so weird when... he gets nervous? or something.

Fun episode will be keeping up.

Well, this is the most unique looking anime I've seen in a while. It's also pretty freaking unhinged, and a lot of fun. Looking forward to more.

Interaction between Haru and Yuki were pretty cute but I swear Haru's water gun has some magic in it LOL the Grandma's really nice to let Haru stay with them and she's quite retro too lulz
Ouji is too pro lolz Looks like Yuki's found a friend and something he's gonna be interested in

Loved the many different colors used. The main character, Yuki, is interesting. I love how they portray his fear.
Unrealistic how Haru was able to live with the two... did the water gun play a role in that?
And Sugita Tomokazu~ Too bad all I could hear was Gintoki ;)

yeah, like it so far.
Not sure about Haru though, I don't like overly enthusiastic characters (they tend to annoy me) but the series is interesting.

Love the characters and story. Hope it stays this good and don't go downhill

easily 5/5.

Loved how they portrayed Yuki's fear of communicating.

I think Haru really is an Alien with a high tech water gun.
Think about it, it's a sci-fi show, Haru calls himself a alien because he doesn't know people would find it weird, he doesn't have a home, he was making the fish move in a group at the start of the show. Plus he's talking about saving the world.

It was so weird I don't grasp how I feel about it.
Use of colors was interesting, music was kinda good too.
Kind of reminds me of Mawaru Penguin Drum but hopefully will be better as it don't seem to include annoying bitchy girl characters,

Different from what I expected, especially that animation.

Natsuki: "Call me Prince at school and I'll kill you." <3

Looks like a fun anime. Why only 11 episodes?

The water gun... :D

I like Haru's power over fishies.

Opening and ending are cute! Animation not so much, but the songs are great.


I knew I was going to like this anime! :3

Very interesting to say the least. I'm strongly hoping for both the girl he also met on the train and the guy with the duck become main cast characters instead of just supporting. Loved the social difficulty metaphors. The backgrounds were the one big thing that failed to convince me. Maybe those will grow on me, but as far as i can tell, they look like landscape photos simplified to have lesser photographic detail, and then a photoshop layer of "Plastic Wrap" filter added on top of the simplified surfaces to simulate artistic detail.

This is, along with Sakamichi no Apollon, the most pleasant surprise so far. I love the vibrant colors and the fact that Yuki LITERALLY drowns. Also the duck is pretty random and I love it. The characters are alright, the setting is great and the style is really creative and different, so that's also a plus.

Loved the first episode. The characters and the animation are great + I like the style. I also loved the fish and especially the duck. Hilarious.

Btw, here it says that the anime started April 7th but it actually started 12th April?? Confused.

Well, that was weird...
Not exactly my style.
Neither story nor characters were able to hook me (even though Sugita-sama is part of the cast).
I think I'll still watch at least the next episode, since I love Enoshima and its surroundings.
The scenery is great and I recognized many places in the anime.
The funny thing: While passing the train station I always wondered whether there was a school nearby. Now I found the answer... In an anime. xD

It is so annoying they always take the pre-airing-date on MAL.
It's called pre-airing because it's not the real airing date.
What if they did a preview for an anime half a year before it airs? It MAL then going to state airing of a 12-episode anime took 9 months?
Mentioning the pre-airing in the more-section would be more than enough...

Really colorful and strange, expected nothing less from this director. Really enjoyable first episode. Was expecting perhaps a slightly whinier MC, so that was a pleasant surprise. Haru is wonderfully weird.

5/5 - Loved both the Noitamina shows this season. Really makes up for the fail that was Guilty Crown.

Phenomenal episode, I want to be in Enoshima so bad right now. Nakamura really is one of the best directors of Japanese animation, his experimental stuff is so great, and coupled with slice-of-life à la Arakawa Under The Bridge... Splendid.

In every age, in every place, the deeds of men remain the same.

This is so weird... the quirkiness of these characters is on par with those from Arakawa under the bridge... That could lead to a hit or miss anime... for now I can say this first episode was entertaining.

On a personal highlight, Natsuki calling Yuki "hannya" because of his faces had me cracking up for a while.

This is the second anime this season with ... well, seasons inspired main characters... but at least this seems more interesting that the other one...

Totally agreed with the Kimi to Boku part! I was totally thinking about it while I was watching Tsuritama! (+ we've got a Yuki in Tsuritama too! LOL)

Anyway, nice character design <3 and I love the setting :D
