Hm... nothing really special. Just the usual stuff found in visual novel based anime, except with more comedy involved.

I'll continue this series; ep 01 gets a 4/5 from me.

Yeah, I was like "what the heck??" the whole way through that. And then the randomness at the beginning...

Yeah...

I don't know what I'm thinking. The main character seemed interesting at first: acts all cool but wishes he'd talked to her; rumors about him being "Genokiller" made up by his teasing friends... But I'm not into really fanservice-y shows. I don't mind a harem if it's done with style... and with minimal thigh, boob and pantie shots. (Some of the shots had the boobs drawn completely outrageous. What do guys see in that?)

I'll give it another episode, and if it doesn't hit home, I'll drop it. Too many other good series this season.

The manga seems to take things in another direction. Yuuhi's tsundere side is already out in full force, well at least she looked like a tsundere from what I saw. Any visual novel adaptation is always a good watch given that there is always a story for them to work with. I for one am rooting for Nanoha ^_^

The story is far from being original, the art isn't outstanding, but it's like the Ocean's Eleven of seyuu!

I'll be watching this for the voices, and it's surely going to be awesome in that aspect at least.


I feel like you literally climbed in and out of my head cuz that was exactly was i was thinking including the ocean's 11 seiyuu cast. creepy...

yea it was pretty meh to me...

I understand what you mean about a visual novel, but I thought this was based off of an H-game :S Is the summary wrong, or was there a visual novel before the H-game?

Oh it has been a long time since I watched any light-hearted romantic school life harem anime (definitely not counting To Love-Ru).. The first episode was rather nice, but it was a bit sloooooooooooooooooooooooooow. The art looks great, but hands down, the girls in this show have the weirdest hairstyles ever. What's up with that?
Another thing that a tiny bit of fan service wouldn't hurt anyone. Like on an early Shuffle level. It's a visual novel adaptation after all. Okay-okay, flame me to hell.

It was good to hear the same familiar voice without shouting baka or urusai for a change. Though I still love shana/nagi/louise but not in every freakin' anime.

I miss Da Capo..

Hope next episode is more interesting for me. x__x

Anyway, crazy hairstyles o.o;

Yeah an H-Game (eroge) Visual Novel. I think people consider Visual Novels as games now for some reason...well whatever.

If we could only get some more translators...the manga looks interesting ='(

Lol, moe show. Oh well, I'll watch it anyways.

I'll probably end up giving this a 7 when it's done. Enjoyable, but not amazing.

Picked the first episode up just because of the seiyuu cast, like so many here. Wasn't very impressed with the show itself tho. Character designs fail for me - I'm more of a Hyakko kinda character style fan. So this show I'll likely drop, unless maybe ep2 delivers some good comedy (and maybe Yuuhi gets a new haircut : p)

Kugimiya with boobs and a girly voice? Who would have imagined that?

So far I'm not that impressed but I'm sticking with it for the cast, that part is and was simply amazing!

First episode didn't impress me a great deal, as I'm more than sick of Rie tsundere, but the premise still holds a little promise, so I'll give it a few episodes.

I wasn't sure if I would watch this one, but decided to give it a try anyway. It's actually decent, and it exceeded what I expected out of this. Of course the plot isn't all that original, but yeah it does feature the Ocean's 11 of seiyuu.

I'm interested to see how this will turn out.

As with most of you guys, I watched this entirely because of the VA.
As for the episode, it was average tbh, I'll give this a few episodes.

I really enjoyed this episode. Not quite sure of what's going with the storyline, but I'm it'll clear up after a few episodes.

I've never really cared much about voice acting. Most of it sounds the same to me, with a few exceptions for amazing voices. I watched because I thought the character designs looked nice and I was right. I don't see what everyone dislikes about the animation. The whole time I was watching I was thinking about how nice everything looked.

Character designs were flawless as well. I'm so sick of seeing new anime looking like it was drawn back in the 80s with round faces and just.. Yeah don't like that.

What kind of school has pink uniforms!?

Either way, rather enjoyable first episode. I think we'll have our typical harem cast and I really hope their isn't some weird brother complex from his sister. But the story itself seems different. Either way, will continue to watch.

Ahh this was a good start. Thank god Kugimiya Rie is actually doing tsundere that's not ridiculously and painfully over the top. It's good to hear Hirano Aya's voice isn't as ear grating as it is in other shows.

Fantastic start for a show in a genre that gets bland after a few series. The animation was decent, the character designs were really cute, and I liked the color palette as well.
It was rather predicable but still fun.

As expected, the entire voice cast had my ears exploding throughout the episode. I basically spent the whole time listening for them xD

Minato is reminding me of Nanoha too much though D:
Switch Hirano Aya with Tamura Yukari and...lol

Stated before, strong cast, enjoyable and in my opinion admirable characters! Rie's tsundere character is a bit different from all the other tsuns' shes played. True, not thaaat original yet, but very entertaining.

I agree, unless she's not really his sister perhaps? c: Opening wasn't that original either, but it was nice. I liked the ending though, <3~

Seems like a good show, I'll start following this one.

I found the kick in the balls absolutely hilarious, mainly due to the painful "tscCSHHARARGIAKA" he blurted out.

Yes, it really throws you for a loop. Even during the "tsundere kick to groin" scene she restrained from going over the top. I think she's trying to distance her roles this season from her most famous previous roles, which is a good thing.

Seemed like a pretty generic first episode, hopefully it does something to separate itself at some point.

+ Kugimiya Rie in a female role that's not highly reminiscent of Shana or Louise
+ Hirano Aya's voice isn't as annoying
+ Nagase's wacky imagination is pretty hilarious
+ ISHIDA AKIRA <333

- It does feel like another Myself ; Yourself but I'll withhold judgment or biases until I actually see more. In terms of enjoyment, I did enjoy this first episode better than I enjoyed M ; Y's
- I generally don't like slice of life/comedy/romance stuff anyway so yeah.

Never heard of this before.. now I got interested because Eclipse was subbing it^^, and after one episode it seems lika an all-win for me.
Awesome staff (Shana/Nagi/Louise, Haruhi/Konata, Kagami, Kana, Yuuto, Kyou, Maria/Suigintou all in main characters orz)
Yuuhi is too cute! I want to marry her right now! ~.~
