That opening scene had me laughing. It's a boy! LMAO

I didn't really like this. The directing style isn't really my thing.

A surprisingly strong start for a 40 episode series. Oscar is impressive, Andre sympathetic and they seem to have the right amount of chemistry from the very first episode, which I feel is definitely going to be one of the features of this anime.

The tone is quite melodramatic at times, and in a good way. As long as it doesn't go overboard...

Wow, I think I'm hooked already. The setting is excellent, and Oscar seems like a badass MC. Plus I'm a huge sucker for those classic 70s OPs, dat bass!

don't know why but the opening reminded me of assassin's creed 2's opening.
good first episode, and i really like the background musics.

This looks pretty nice. Audio quality isn't bad; I expected a lot more compression and artifacts, due to its age. I wonder if the visual quality can keep up for 40 episodes, without recycled cuts. I'm not very into the hyper-emphasized drama (feels too old-school, and yet not absurdly over-the-top like JoJo). But I did like, for example, that scene where Oscar and her best friend were fighting in that secluded location.

Really awesome art and I'm also fond of the setting,this is most likely going to be great.
Kokoro did nothing wrong.

Really strong first episode.I for one wasn't a big fan of Utena which was inspired by this, but was definitely a fan of this first episode.

I wasn't expecting so much to happen in episode 1. Heck I wasn't expecting to be overwhelmed like I did but here I am. So excited for this.

I started watching this about 20 days ago. I just finished it today and saw that someone commented on episode 1. This show gets slow at time, but keep with it, it truly is incredible.

Ah, gender roles the anime.

I wonder why Oscar didn't hurt her face when her father pushed her down the stairs.

It broke me a little when she decided her path with putting the military uniform on herself thus throwing away her womanhood. She's still such a beautiful rose.
Shame on her father, really. If it wasn't for him, she wouldn't live a life of a boy.

It was a good first episode. I'm sold to watch further.

It's annoying to see people being greedy for a male child but this man went too far. I like Oscar, really interesting to see how this goes.

I'm not into girls beating up guys if it doesn't seem feasible, but I think they did a good job here. 14 year old Oscar looked pretty much equally built to the 15 year old servant.

I watched Anne of Green Gables just before this and it also started with parents wanting a boy and ending up with a girl.
