Awesome visuals and animation. Love the camera techniques and sound track.
Sometimes i feel there are too much glowing, blinking and light flares going around, but it just increase the level of details of the scene.

I disagree, I think the way the CGI is used with the scenery is very well done, nothing but praises from me in this aspect. I suppose I can see why you would dislike it, you prefer something with a better base value than having it topped off with extras, which is understandable. I personally prefer this over just plain art, I think the way this series utilizes the CGI goes very nicely with the overall animation quality.

It makes me laugh that you can't compare this to DRRR. As you stated earlier, it's confusing and you can't tell anything from it. This is the kind of atmosphere that DRRR had as well. Something that had no clear idea on what to expect, the story behind many of the occurrences is left in mystery, and it even has it matched in terms of supernatural abilities as well as gang wars.

Good visual (DAT SKATEBOARDING SCENE!?), but it needs a plot.

Visual's stunning, the animation is so much win, and what words can I use to describe the quality of music? superb? No it's not enough.

Although the plots lack of substance but it's just only the first episode, whoever wishes to see a clear plot really need to be patient.

Oh well, music, animation are worth watching even if the plot could turn into crap.

I sort of already posted this in another thread, but I think it bear repeating

The art is beautiful, and I had high hopes, but so far I don't care for it. Like someone else said it seemed like nothing happened in the first episode. The art may be beautiful, but so far the story sucks, and there is little to no character development. All the characters are all super trendy and stuff. And if the skater character was trying to catch someone why was he doing a bunch of tricks? Wouldn't that be slower than not doing tricks. Does he get a speed boost with every trick like in a video game? That would be cool, but he doesn't so its stupid.

I especially had a hard time watching this after watching the first episode of Chuunibyou Demo Koi ga Shitai! the day before, which, by the way, was fantastic.

He is blushing as a man embraced him. Plus the main characters voice is kind of feminine. My guess is that the cat girl, is his inner woman trying to get out. I'm going to go watch To Love Ru Darkness. No more gay, I mean k, for me. Get it? Have a sense of humor please.

Yep, not convinced about this yet so far, it can either be good or disappointing but I think its not that crazy to say in terms of animation and production values it PUTS KYOANI TO SHAME :) :)

So, some general impression of, perhaps, one of the most anticipated anime in the fall season.

First, it is impossible to ignore its great visual effects (especially those with the skateboarding). Second, the music is definitely fabulous. Third, the number of my favorites seiyuus makes my heart beat faster. So far, pluses are over.

Unfortunately, in the first ep there was no character development (it is highly depressing, considering that the show has only 13 episodes). I... I would not like to see any ecchi or shounen-ai there as well. Please, I believe in you, dear producers.

I pin my hopes on K-Project, but I can not shake off the memory of Guilty Crown, where animation and music were at the highest level, but the story...

Anyway, keep up watching.

With Zetsuen another fangirl series with supernatural powers or magic. I was waiting for this season to be good, im dissapointed for the moment. The stories seems to be generic with bishonen all the way and for me that's boring. Moreover the opening was horrific, that was an outrageous opening. Waiting for psycho and robotics notes.

If you don't like the plot/story, just simply drop it or keep watching for the visuals/music.

That's what motivated me when I watched GC

Did this show have two openings? I felt confused but the second one was really nice. I hope there will be more plot from now on, but anyway I'll continue watching K, even if it is only for the visuals and the soundtrack.

Well I liked it even though nothing really happened in the first episode. It was just to show off the awesome animation which is definitely worth it and some of my favorite seiyuus. But...of course....the main protagonist HAD TO LOOK AND ACT LIKE A GAY ! -disappointed- So many cool characters and stuff,they just HAD to make the wimpiest of them all the ''main'' guy -disappointed- That's my only complaint for now.Rest was awesome xD.

the CGI is not very well done. it stands out. simple as that. it looks bad and just kills the overall look of the show. also its WAY too blinky and shiny.


no i cant compare a good anime like DRRR! with a halfassed anime with flashy, shiny and blinky animation with absolute no substance like K.
so just try to comprehend it. i will put my hand into fire if K has a decent plot ;)

Not fucking bad.

Visuals were okay, if they have to cut corners with CGI to give us more, I don't mind. The animation was clean, not as fluid as we'd like but still okay.

Not really sure the direction "K" is going.

When i see shiro blushing after the guy hugged him I was a bit turned off...

But still need a few more eps to see how this anime turns out.

Hopefully we don't get a shitload of Neko's fanservice

Indeed the best visuals for this season by far. Gohands really went all out for this. I don't really mind the bishi-ness and BL overtones that much. The setting seems to atleast be interesting set some time in the future and the music is great too. Overall the best first impression of this fall season.

The visuals are to die for, that's for sure.

We got quite a lot of information but it's way too early to figure the story out, the soundtrack reminds me a bit of Samurai Champloo and Neko is pretty damn hot.

First episode had very little plot. Oh well, it is the first episode, it can be overlooked.

From what I understand is, that those teams fight each other with supernatural powers. And Isana is wanted because he did something bad. (But judging by his facial experession, perhaps he has some sort of a split personality?)

The animation was great as it was expected. Music wasn't that bad either.

I'm not a fan of Durarara, so, I am not that glad that it did resembled it.

And lastly... I hope this is not another yaoibait.

Just to correct you that's not Reisi. It's Kurou. And he's super badass!!

And my impressions of the anime I've been waiting for so long to watch. BISHIES!! And super power and battles! That's what I've been wanting to see. Nice first episode and impatiently waiting for more.

I'm kind of expecting Psycho-Pass to fail hard like this did since it has pretty pictures also.

Though Fate/Zero's writer did make it, and Fate/Zero is one of the greatest things I have ever seen.

God I really hope it does not suck though.

The art and the effects are nice but that's as far as the good things go.
To be honest i don't know what to make of this show and wasn't bad but i cant call it good either so from that perspective i would call it neutral.
A dozy main character guys with superpowers a gang and some special police unit are also things that have been done before and so far i didn't see anything interesting yet.
The only thing that stood out was the ghost like cat girls who was flying true the corridors who appeared to be the cat that was with the main character all the time.
Other then that this anime failed to get my interest.

I think most of us did to, they guy with the yellow hair and smokes a boogie (forgot his name), thought Durarara first when i saw him. Great animation, have high hopes for this show.

Great, I wasn't disappointed! ^^
This anime is pure eye candy, amazing :D All of the characters seem pretty interesting but I'm quite confused by what happened in this episode xD But that will be fixed in the next episodes for sure, no problem there :) I'm specially curious about the little girl :P And Neko, ofc xD

This anime didn't have much info about it around so I really didn't know what to expect, but I'm glad to notice that this is a good candidate for top anime of the season ^^

At the end of the episode I realised nothing of substance actually really happened. Quite flashy though, but all show and no weight makes me a little wary of it.

Also, that stupid blush Yashiro had on his face. I was afraid it'll be gay and looks like it will be. I'm giving it 2 more episodes to prove itself before dumping it in the gutter.


(I am very, very severe when it comes to BL stories that I like only very few because they tend to waste precious story tiemz with "couple building".
Imagine if Reborn / Bleach / Naruto / Eyeshield / Durarara was actually a BL story. Yep.)

Watched 3 minutes and the first thing I have to mention is: Iliya de Blois aka Victorica von Einzbern anyone?
Watched 6 minutes and Code Geass Damocles flying over the town.
Watched 10 minutes and I see the dirt collecting robots from To aru majutsu no index.
Watched 20 minutes and Yagami Light, I mean Yatagami Kuro appears.
Watched 23 minutes and just noticed the uniforms remind me of Fullmetal Alchemist, which is undermined with the following showing of a prisoner in these wooden handcuffs which I could have sworn to be Kimblee till they showed his face.

This anime just reminds me of so much stuff I watched over the last few years. Was ok as an episode, with some potential to become really good, hope they don't turn Guilty Crown though.

You're so mysterious Isana, and I love Kuroh already ♥
This show reminded me of when I first watched episode 1 of DRRR. It confused me yet after several episodes I was hooked.
Neko is a naked, invicible cat-girl!
I expect more of Munakata. He's too plain as of now.
Hey, the white-haired old man has similar/same eye-color as Isana

I loved the feel of the episode, but only time will tell if this is the next big anime or not.

I love how everyone is "hoping it isn't the next" Guilty Crown. That title used to be saved for "Mars of Destruction".
