Did Yuki remind anyone else of a younger version Ponyo's dad from Ponyo on a Cliff by the Sea? It's just those odd facial expressions he makes along with his hair color and the whole thing he seems to have with fish...

Though yeah, I liked this episode a lot. The characters are weird as anything but in a quirky, endearing way, and the art looked really pretty, especially those shots of Yuki's new garden. I'm not sure if I liked this or the first episode of Apollon better, but this really impressed me.

I'm not sure why I liked this, but I did. To say the least, I like the vibrant colors. Though Haru's voice is incredibly grating to my ears.

It's bright! I'm so amazed at how many shows I find enjoyable this season. ^^

This one definitely reminded me of Arakawa Under the Bridge as well as Ponyo, but it's unique in itself. The seiyuu cast is a bit new to me as well so it's quite nice to be listening to them.

The music and art complement the show so well!

I am now officially a fan of A-1 Pictures. Can't believe it took me six shows to realize. xD

This Haru faggot annoys me. Enough to seriously make me consider dropping this right now.

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 agree on the Kimi to Boku vibes. I immediately picked out Yuuki and Chizuru's voices. <3

I thought so too when I first heard his character speak, but when I realized he also voiced Chizuru in Kimi to Boku, another very hyper character, everything made more sense to me and I didn't have a problem accepting the way the voicing is done.

OMG IT'S THE SONG FROM HAKUSEN NAGASHI (ed), SO OLD O_O What an awesome surprise.
I'm so glad I'm not the only one that recognized the ED! I started singing along with it as it started and I'm like, "Wait, how can I know the lyrics to a 'brand new' song?" XD
I didn't know it was used in a drama, though. I've just been a fan of Spitz's music ever since I watched Honey and Clover.

Spitz's (original) version of the ED used, for anyone interested:

That was a great and really cool episode. Yuki is epic and Haru is fun, Natsuki too.

I LOVED THIS. It was so quirky and fun. I can tell I'm going to enjoy this anime. Yuki is great. I can really relate to him, even though I've never transferred schools before. Everyone seems to hate Haru, but I loved him~ He was so weird, but I thought he was adorable. Of course, I also might be biased because I've had a thing for blonde guys recently, but whatever. xD

What "Adolescence" do you have?
Do you remember "Childhood"?
The irreplaceable one existed there.

To those who find this weird, you guys should definitely watch Mononoke and Kuchuu Buranko. First minutes felt like Mononoke.

As expected from Kenji Nakamura. His experimental type of animation style parred with vibrant colors is definitely refreshing to the eyes.

And the cast is also interesting and enjoyable. I LOL'd with the Indian guy with a duck. (Sugita as VA sounds fun). XD

So far, this season's noitaminA block have great pilot episodes.

I was iffy about whether I'd pick up this show or not (particularly since there are so many interesting ones this season that I'm already worried about how to find the time to watch them all), then I saw the first episode...I'm hooked.
Please don't feed the trolls!
In my next life I want to collide at the corner with the cute transfer student

That was fantastic :D really quirky and fun to watch.

I was gonna give it a try at first just b/c of Uki Atsuya's art, but really pleasent suprise. Animation was really colourful as well.

Who knew you could make an anime about fishing interesting? lol.

You can always count on series directed by Nakamura to be at least this weird haha

I thoroughly enjoyed the first episode, it was very lively and funny. The animation style is pretty refreshing.
I'm looking forward to the next episode.

Heh. I can sympathize with Yuki. Social anxiety does sometimes feel like you're drowning.


Only one episode, and already better than the entirety of [C].

Welcome back, Kenji Nakamura.

Me too~ Chizuru´s VA and Yuuta´s VA;)

Gotta praise the work of the new VA voicing the red haired boy, Yuki! Great voice!

Oh god Haru's type of character is one of my most hated character types. Loud, forces his way into other people's lives, strange and obnoxious.

Though Gintoki with a duck more than makes up for that.

And is it weird that when Haru was yelling SKY... I was expecting him to say rim?

Tonight... we are young... so let's set the world on fire, we can burn brighter, than the sun...

I loved the opening and and the ending was nice too.

The awesome weirdness of this show reeled me in with its first episode.
The visuals, the OP and of course the seiyuu (particularly Uchiyama Kouki~) were nice bait.

The series I was anticipating the most this season.
After all, aliens, fishing and saving the world's a pretty unorthodox combo - and it didn't disappoint.

Haru's otherworldly eccentricity didn't bother me, on the contrary, it's quite refreshing from all that Tsunami spilling out of MCs pockets.

Looking forward to see where it will go from here.

Oh my... After the failure of noitaminA to produce great animes last season (Guilty Crown and BRS ftw), I am so glad that it returns with two potential hits this season. I thought Sakamichi no Apollon was already awesome but this anime is even more so. Just the type of anime for me. Weird characters, weird setting, weird legend, weird artstyle, weird voices... weird everything! And because it's so weird, that's what make it unique! Look forward to more weirdness from the show, it certainly shapes up to be one of the weirdest (and awesome) anime of the season.

I thought it was really good. The art was especially great, all those beautiful colors..

This season is going to kill me. Between Fate/Zero, that basketball anime, Space Brothers, Zetman, Sakamichi no Apollon and now this, it's probably going to be the best season in a while.

Looks good but still can't shake off impression that all except characters (and more detailed objects like threes) is CGI.

Kinda strange, but the animation's really nice and the characters are quite interesting.
Hope they introduce that Indian guy with the duck in the next episode.
