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


Well, not bad, not bad at all imo. The OP is pretty catchy with the signature Lelouch-like pose at the end there.

I have to say that KyotoAnimation sure can make some good visuals. Rikka is pretty moe while Yuuta is more of the typical boy. Her other eye reminds me of Laura Bodewig from Infinite Stratos a bit in the form of the color gold. Not much happened though but there was definitely some comedy with a big ass sword held by a little girl. I also think Yuuta might have a crush on Shinka. I wonder how that will play out later on in the future.

Overall, it was an an amusing episode :p

ED was really catchy as well and so cool!

Generally the ep. is like how the description was written. Not sure if I should follow weekly or marathon it when it finishes airing.

So much color saturation blinding my eyes.

It was entertaining but only scratching the surface of its potential.

Well, I actually think Dark Flame Master was cool.
我が名はダークフレイムマスター、闇の炎に抱かれて死ね!
You know, with that tone of FukuJun.

Anyway, yes, this show is great. Get me grinning all the way through. As expected of KyoAni.

On a side note:
- The ED is pretty cool like K-ON!'s usual EDs, but the OP hurt my eyes.
- Yuuta's imoutos are cute.
- Rikka is loveable, but those supporting girls are too.
- I find the characters' names hilarious. Tsuyuri, Isshiki, teacher, also Touka and Rikka. That's a lot of numbers. Not to mention forehead.
- Dr.Pepper is Mr.Peter in this show.

7/10 for starter.

Looks like fun, the plot sounds cool but I am waiting to see how Yuuta will interact with the other people in his classroom and school, the animation looks top notch, nothing memorable from the soundtrack BGM yet but it's okay.

What I really want to know who have been making the endings for KyoAni, this one is also fantastic, the OP was okay, kinda different but okay.

Good episode,the OP is pretty good but the animation in it may hurt many people head as how it change flames all the time.But got some interesting ones from cheers,cute dances and butty dancing! :P


The ED was awesome really like it,not only the song its great also the animation was pretty good i really liked dancing Rikka!


As the episode itself really K-On feeling,the characters are enjoyable so far really like Rikka "innocence" doing her posses.

Yuuta seems will be a nice MC and voiced by Fukuyama Jun always adds something specially his "epic" Dark Flame Master!!


Well first episode and was not bad,will look for more specially when they start to interact with the others.

BTW Rikka its cute!!

Okay, that was incredibly enjoyable. I think this has the potential to be the best show of the season, and the interaction between the two is really cute and endearing as well. Love the vibrant art style and the lighthearted nature of the show, made me laugh a few times.

Haters gonna hate.

Well, I sure am gonna hate it - not because of the show itself, however autistic it appears to be (it's KyoAni after all), but because of the annoying fan base that's bound to gather around it.
Proof? Just look at the comment above you.

Eh, that was weird. Kinda interesting, but not THAT great. Art is awesome, but animation is pretty weak for a KyoAni show. Can't blame them, after animatin Hyouka...

Usual pretty KyoAni animation.

As for the story, I'm not really sure. It's an interesting premise, but, with me being who I am, I find comedy and romance to be a very poor combination when done badly. We'll see how it goes.

Characters. I like Yuuta, he has a good attitude (and I rather like Fukuyama's voice). I don't like Rikka. She's annoying and gets in Yuuta's way. Let Yuuta do stuff, you fool. I may also like that Makoto guy.

In any case, this can go either way. Like Hyouka.

Hating a show because of its fanbase is incredibly silly. All moderately popular anime will have overzealous and/or annoying individuals so it's to be expected.

That's KyoAni that I like - making either moeblobs or absurd comedies.
And this was really nice one and adorable.

Rikka is love in her delusional way of life (I sense here some potential for drama but if handed well who knows).

Oh, so you're gonna hate show, because KyoAni have ''fanboys'' like me? what the hell.I won't deny here, i love KyoAni because most of shows i watched from them were IMO awesome, and now when i see they made another title that looks amazing in my eyes by so far im just happy like hell.I don't think you should hate the show because of fanbase though ._.

I think you're confusing animation with art here. Chuuni has a simpler aesthetic compared to Hyouka, but in terms of animation, showing movement, Chuuni's first episode is marvelous. Many well-animated cuts, I'd say it might be the best-animated debut episode of the season.

No, the art is pretty bright, and it's great. But a few scenes had somewhat sloppy animation, mostly in the backgrounds. It's nothing major tho.

Ok I think complaining about the opening is really dumb, I mean seriously like any kyoto animation opening hate it all you want it is never leaving your head no matter how hard you try.
I was very confused, not by the episode but that I found a 5 minute short before the show started with a different opening, animation and such and it really sucked, in fact whatever it was almost turned me off to the series completely, so now I can gladly say after the actual episode I enjoyed it, I actually seeing the premise of a girl in highschool who thinks she has superpowers and is awesome but doesn't incredibly familiar but I can't put my finger on what it is.
I am definitly watching at least the first 4 or so episodes before I judge this show but overall in my opinion a pretty solid start.

Got a good laugh from this show so yeah enjoyed it :)
Combination of hyouka and another for characters and probably a bit of k-on well two of the three are kyoani.
I can empathise with Yuuta... with my days in year 8.

That was awesome. As expected.

Such amazing art/animation quality as usual by KyoAni. Rikka is so moe, as is Yuuta's little sisters. Rikka is shaping up to my one of my favorite characters.

Also, Lelouch! Freaking Lelouch!

<3'd it, can't wait for ep 2! I look forward to seeing the characters grow and seeing some epic chuunibyou battles.

As expected from KyoAni, we have a strongly produced first episode. I kinda liked it and am curious about how it will continue.

Great start of an awesome anime. I honestly think this might be better than SAO. Just hope it doesn't start rushing episodes like they did with SAO. Love the opening and ending. Rikka was acting pretty cute during the last few minutes. I don't like the 8th grade syndrome talk but it's cute if it's her. She's so cute when she acts all shy. ^_^
Oh and I thought Shinka sort of looked like Asuna from SAO. She just has the same chestnut colored hair but in a less braided style. Also, love the K-on style like animation.

Yumeha is fucking adorable.

Great episode~! As expected of KyoAni :D

This is my cup of tea :D
Moe+Comedy+Good plot~

I'm loving the ending too!

Why do I have this feeling that the class representative has an eight-grader syndrome before too just like Yuuta... but she is hot and cute :D

Not telling you what value to put in MAL ratings; but you shouldn't just look at half the ratings like that; only 201 people voted on that 7.58; its safe to assume that it will go much higher

The opening reminded me of Haruhi,
while the ending reminded me of K-on.
Overall this show looks interesting,
not just because it was moe.
That's a added bonus. :P
I used to believe the brain was the most important organ in the body.
Then I realized - - Look what's telling me that.
