THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
----------------------------------------

Pretty good first episode TBH. As the title involves it was about bread. One thing bread can do is save cute things. Animals of supernatural value such as the little furball in the following spoiler
those creatures a like as long it ain’t shit stink BS Kyuubey kind. That being said I have high expectation from this series:
http://myanimelist.net/anime/445/Tales_of_Eternia
To be integrated into this one.
If they put fan service I WILL NOT LIKE! I have like over 5 shows that do that so please NO. Other than that in terms of the girls I get to own and add to my own Realm:

About Airy Ardet, yeah I choose her first in the following,

Plains and simple blond hair and blue eyes.

About Amil Manaflare, she would be my second choice. Based on her different appearances in the spoiler
it’;s due to her dress, hair/style and in general her appearance along with her character.

About the Elf with the white head wings, her in the following,

Along with in the spoiler
is my #2 after is Airy at #3. I totally digging her dress and style. Mainly her bodies appearance.

Loved the girls sleeping in the spoiler
that was some nice show.

That being said the episode was more intro than anything. That’s normal. However it better pic up shit in the next episode. Being familiar with the game, it with time got better. However unless you start a plot with action and villains this series will not go anywhere. And so I hope for something more next episode.

Art and style are TOP NOTCH! Very well done IMO. I could start to drool on the art but will hold myself out. It really is gorgeous though. Might edit later.

BTW End Image in the spoiler
is a nice group one.

I've played the game Yume, no Kyubey characters in it. You won't like Rouna, her outfit is practically fanservice.

I'll take Amil since I chose her in the game.

This anime makes me yearn to go back to work at a bakery like I did near the end of undergrad school.

Rick's harem just drags him out of bed lol

I hope there's a little action in this too.

Oh that's yummy but full blown details like in Manyuu or stuff like that, is what I meant more. There were some in the series I refer but it was all cool. HECK! Even Tales of the Abyss had some in outfits.

I doubt there will be any borderline H content, the game itself is B rated (12+).

This should also be classified as a harem, there are more girls that flirt with the main.

Oh OK, I was not aware except that some games from this franchise were mature. I could be wrong, well then this should be fun. Grabbing some girls from this series for myself. Muahhaha, I fear not! For I know the MOE Force is strong with us Hoppy of the Anime Council, right? In fact I think it outboasts any ecchi TBH. I was just worried of the future outcomes from this series. Thanks for info.

This will be a diabetes inducing series end of story, This anime will ruin some viewers diet for sure due to all that bread. According to dietians, bread is bad for you, according to this anime, bread makes you happy and saves lives and in the game.................

Gawd that was dull... That was like a dull opening for a dull game... And yes, I know it is based upon a game, but give me a break - couldn't they come up with anything beyond derivative fluff?

What this needed was a nasty sense of humor - like having the Kyube thing turn into a tentacle monster after eating the bread.

Life's too short - dropped.

The best anime about bread this season (like there is any other). If bread makes anyone happy, then let me tell you this straight,
THIS ANIME IS FOR YOU!

Let me be honest here jokes aside. The only thing that is good about this anime is probably the smiling faces. And the second thing is despite being generic to probably down to their underwear, which I am confident about having Pans instead of Usagi-chan or Kuma-san printed on them (at least I am glad they are not going the ecchi route), the girls are lovely.

The fact that the male protagonist Rick Elwood is voiced by Kamiya Hiroshi doesn't help or change the fact that this has been the worst first episode of this season, at least of the shows I have followed.

Did HiroC voice two characters? I feel like both Rick and that Elf brother (Alvie) sounds the same. (Edit: thought so, the credit has two names for him)

I wasn't planning on watching this, but ep.1 looks nice. It might be good if you're depressed.

How... underwhelming.
There was nothing in this episode that interested me in the slightest, neither characters nor setting. The art looks pretty generic just like the character design. The dialogue is uninspired and the character interactions rather dull. So far it seems like a standard fantasy anime aside the little twist concerning bread baking.

Is this really an action show like it's tagged as on the MAL page? There was 0 action in the entire episode; it just looks like a boring SoL about boring people baking and selling bread.

It was like the first episode, let it build up....

The first episode doesn't always have to be actionpacked, super good whatever aslong the shows stays enjoyable and keeps good pacing.

Man, people are as always quick to judge and rate the show solely on the first episode. There will be action, wait for it.

I pretty much liked it. They slowly showed the setting and the characters, with main being a pretty neat guy with a FREAKING bake skills. How cool is that.

It's refreshing to see a show like this. I personally had enough of high-school ecchi harem shows. Some decent anime with fantasy setting is awesome to see.

The show might not had action but it was at least entertaining.

Is this series or world anyhow related to Shining Tears X Wind?

Will they have any action in this series? So far i like the world.

LOL at the quick judgements... Personally I don't see what's so wrong to make people flee so fast, but whatever... In fact I think it was nice, though with a bit of a slow start. Still, it's too soon to judge if you ask me.

Just wait til Kaguya comes then the action and plot will begin, I believe it will be either 2nd or the 3rd ep when she appears.

Liked the character designs, but the characters themselves were pretty bland. Overall, a fairly dull episode, though I've heard the game gets more exciting, so I'll give this series another chance.

No, they are two different people. Though they do look crazy similar. I believe Shining Hearts takes place way after the events of Shining TearsxWind.

How is it possible for a bread shop to be so successful man. The dude was a swordsman first, not a baker. He's gotta be putting some drugs in them, how else would he improve so quickly. o.o

Kind of boring. Decent episode, atleast it has some plot occurrence.

Yeah I had this same feeling, it was kind of Shukufu no Campanella, ant kind of boring.
But still this first eps was a little better than that show, so I give it a shot.

It was kind of like Shukufuku no Campanella but 60% less cute(mostly due to T2's art which just remind you of h stuff no matter what) and it doesn't seem like it'll continue like it. I mean something is happening already and besides it's an adaptation of an rpg, so yeah.
Wasn't too bad, i can manage until peace picks up.

There's just way too much sugar in that bread! Unless they spice it up a bit by the third episode (following the Madoka rule--never assume you know what a show is about until after the
in episode three), I will concentrate on the raft of better shows this season.

I don't like the openings and endings, and it seemed a bit to carefree and cheerful for me. However the art is fantastic and if it's builds up a story and action then I hope to enjoy it.

I doubt it is action though after this episode, action shows don't generally have no action in the first episode. They usually have some of the best fights in the series in the first episode to get people to watch.

I'll watch regardless.
