This episode was so damn boring (IMO). -_-

and the characters are not very likeable.

Hmmm...

Rikka is behaving too... delusional for my liking. I know that it's her character, but I'm having a hard time accepting her.

Maybe she'll grow on me in a few more episodes.


OP give me a headache...
Seriously... Whoever responsible for the OP needs to get the axe.

Can't say I enjoy this episode too much. Still learning/getting used to the characters.


EDIT: My current impression...

I'm ganna be heartbroken if this show sale more than Hyouka.


Indeed. Her eccentricities might have been meant to be charming, but it's just plain... disturbing. Can totally imagine her shame when she snapped out of the illness. If she ever does.

=/ and I would be astounded too. Hyouka is better IMO.


I think there isn't anything wrong with the anime but the problem is with your head!You decided to hate this anime even before the start!
You are not suited for this genre! hyouka and this is a completely different!
You are a moron for comparing these two! and her character is the main attraction of this comedy anime!i think your comments are more annoying!


First of all... nothing is wrong with our head, your's however, may need some adjustments.

1. Did we, in any way shows that we decided to hate the show before it start?
FYI, This is my most anticipated show. In the past several years, I've only ever missed out on 1 KyoAni release, which is Nichijo.

2. I'm not suited for this genre? Go look through my anime list!

3. Yes we are comparing, but we're comparing "our preference" of "KyoAni product". Saying that we compare Hyouka to Chuuni is very unfair, because we did not say anything like
"Omg, Rikka is not as cute as Chitanda, I hate Rikka"
or
"Hyouka is so much funnier, Chuuni is bad"
THAT WOULD BE COMPARING!
What we did however, is not. Learn the difference.

4. You find those comments annoying? Well, you shouldn't in the first place, because none of us did the thing you were accusing us of. It's your misinterpretation and assumptions that is giving you grieves.

And guess what, you barging in screaming at us with your false accusation however, do annoy us. Because we're aren't guilty of the things you claim we did. Fuck... I hate people who just scream murder at the smallest things... Especially those that don't even understand what's going on.

Muder Huh!!!!you think at a little scale too!
Not murder i meant complete annihilation!
First of all why are even mentioning hyouka in every step!
if that doesn't cure your stupidity then go through you speech again!
you even mentioned you will be heart broken if hyouka sells less than this anime!(something like that)
If this doesn't mean you aren't at least comparing this with hyouka then i will be a saint and go on a journey!If i don't understand whats going on its alright at least i know myself unlike you who doesn't even know what yourself are saying!@Airstyles!
And @weiqifan i didn't mean you so please refrain from dragging everything upon yourself!

Surely looks more interesting than Hyouka. The ending, and especially the animation(effects) reminded me of K-ON's "NO,Thank You".

Also "Don't be lazy" (from the beginning there's apples, which displays like neon lights), which I like because I like both songs.
And the second Haruhi opening "Tomare" also uses these effects, and Hyouka's openings of course. But K-ON was the first one where KyoAni used these I think.

The pacing is really good in this one so far, that was something that bothers me over the last seasons often. Looking forward to more! Just 13 episodes doesn't seem sufficient so far.

I also like that with my interest in Japanese railways I can determine where this anime should be taking place, in this case it's around the Keihan Electric Railway's Ishiyama Sakamoto Line in the Shiga prefecture. That's the train Yuuta, Rikka and Shinka took to school in this episode.

It is Ishiyama Sakamoto Line, Anou and Ishiyama stations.

The shooting places can be verified in this video. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=srEHNrxZ2HU
I love how some Japanese people go to train stations to capture the locations of anime. There's even so much more than just that in Japan with both anime and trains. Sometimes they even go as far as having voice actors call out stations in trains.
If I would live in Japan I already know what I would be wasting my life on.

By the way, can't figure out this story. Maybe about eight-grade syndrome or maybe those fictional things are really true.

Not bad at all. Good animation. Decent character designs. And my favorite voice actor. Dark Flame Master!

That said I am intrigued if there's actually any powers. It could be good either way it turns out, but I'm expecting a twist.

Less boring than a lot of the shows lately so I'll keep watching for now.

Pretty much similar to K-ON char design, main char that looked like Houtarou Oreki from Hyouka, eyepatch girl that resembles the girl from Another but acts kinda like Kuroneko/Kobato. lol this show's pretty much fun! i want moar!

If you really want to fit in, just put Legend of the Galactic Heroes in your top 5 and have it be the only 10-rated anime in your list.

It reminds of haruhi for some reason. Supernatural Nut in middle school trying to be normal in highschool. Im gonna continue simply because i can relate to the main character(Like Kyon), i had some issues in junior high.

Now that's quite a blasphemy.
Okay, not really, it looks nice and the girl's weirdness is very enjoyable. This is how Haruhi should've been. The whole thing about Haruhi series is about how much of a weirdo she is, when she is not weird in the slightest, just energetic and selfish. THIS girl is weird. Again, enjoyably so.

But the opening and the ending worry me for a certain reason - GIRLS. Many, many girls to come. For Keima's sake, you have this funny and cute female lead, PLEASE don't make it into a f*cking harem. I'm not complaining, just worrying. Hopefully the girls will be good characters and NOT in love with the protagonist.

Also, the first time I saw this guy, I almost yelled about how they simply copied Houtarou from their previous show like they didn't even care. It's after a while I noticed he's just similar. Very similar. But they're totally different character-wise, which helps.

Strange OP. I'm very very pleasantly surprised by the episode. The subject matter is adorably immature and irresistibly squirm-inducing.

Really interested in how they are going to take it from here. Both the main character and lead heroine are wonderful. Highly anticipating the next episode.

Very good & hilarious debut episode, i enjoyed that more than i thought i would. The two mains seem to have good chemistry together and even if it seemed a little fast paced in terms of development, i enjoyed their interactions with each other. Seems like this series will have an interesting take on social status and peer pressure amongst other themes.

Whatever the case something tells me we haven't even scratched the surface of the powers the tyrants eye of truth holds. Can't wait to see more and only hope that she is in complete control of her powers.

How do you respond to this? lol


Being one of the cutest ways of encountering the female MC with simplicity?^^

Liked it a lot. Very lighthearted but perfect after a long day of work and seems to be a very cute-oriented anime, no judgement from my side, though.
And Yuuta looks sooo much like Oreki from Hyouka, so I'm kinda bound to like it as my picture implies, ha.
Made me smirk when he stood in front of the mirror and was touching his hair like Oreki does at least it seemed so at first..
Definitely one of my biggest hopes for being the favourite this season.

I doubt it, Oreki is a little more subtle in the way he acts than Yuuta and Chitanda was incredibly repetitive, I really can't see much of a resemblance.

Woah, I really didn't expect such a light-hearted first episode. I was glued to the screen throughout.

I find Rikka to be such an interesting character. Her enthusiasm makes me hang on every word she says. Wearing roller shoes and uses the konami code?! I certainly like her a lot from this first impression.

Good comedy, good animation. Lots of exaggeration. Not convinced by the OP but I love the ED. I hope it adds a little more fantasy later, I do hope all that imaginative fiction Rikka spills out turns out to be true afterall. It's really great.

Definitely prefer the lite OP over this one :/

3/5 is my vote. Sure the animation is nice, but the show is really boring and pointless, in my opinion. I feel like there is no goal in this show.
The side characters are meh at the moment but I don't know why I ship student rep and main guy, instead of main guy and main girl. :s

Gonna give it two or three more episodes.

This episode was, in a word, adorable. Rikka's delusions and Yuuta's kindhearted innocence...I have a good feeling about this one.

What a simple yet adorable anime. Based on the first episode, it looks promising. I'll be following this one this season.

This anime, was different from what I expected. From the summary, I guess a dark romance, but this turned out to be a romance, comedy. Not that it is bad or anything, it is really cute! I love the main heroine so far, she is so cute, when scaring Yuuta(I think that was the male lead's name) making him give rape faces! I like it so far, its humorous, cute, and so far seems to be going good.

The opening reminded me of Haruhi for some reason (probably the cheerleader outfit).

It's ended up being better than expected. Has potential to become the best KyoAni show. The only thing I dislike so far is eyepatch girl. She's retarded. KyoAni sure loves retarded heroines. WooHoo.

If you hate the female lead, then how can it become the best kyoani show(in your opinion)?
