Ah, such a sad childhood for Kotoura!
Really like the ED song - so calm and beautiful.
Looks like Mifune and Muroto are introduced next time.

Any man with a girlfriend/wife who can read his mind is pretty bad. I wonder how the romance will develop with Haruka.

First half was amazingly cruel and dark, then second half seemed light hearted and funny, very interesting.

It sad that even in the high school already she still doesn't realise that it's not the mind reading that she can't control. It's her mouth.

Called everyone on their lies and she's the one who's treated like a monster :(

That transition from dark to light and fluffy was well-done.

Couldn't have started a what seemed like a generic rom-com any better. I'm all for the traumatic moments keep em comin

If only the series was actually kept most of the dark aspects in tho, still 5/5 really good start.

I was shocked at how dark the start was, then when it did a complete 180 and became a comedy near the end. It was like Up or something, freaked me out. Still, seems like a great show, will definitely keep watching for the time being.

Dear god talk about a sad/tragic backstory... I got no sympathy for her Dad and later for her Mother... and just when she finds a little refuge (the cat) is also taken away... damn!

Glad MC gave her have a little hope at the half of this episode...

My respect to Grandpa.

The douche-bag-ery of the characters felt way too contrived and exaggerated, like they are being assholes just for the sake of being assholes or they absolutely enjoy being assholes or something. Take that truck driver, he was LITERALLY TRYING to run them over. I was surprised he didn't turn back around and try to finish the job. However, since this show isn't exactly trying to be an amazing drama or anything, I can overlook it.

Also, for someone who claims to want to be left alone, she goes out of her way to try to cause trouble with all her unprovoked snide remarks. And how dumb are you to have the ability to read minds and not be able to take huge advantage of that.

Holy sh*t, the first half of this episode was so depressing...

It's looking up for the MC though. Seems like this could be a good anime.

Couldn't have started the first episode any better. Reminded me about how "Chihayafuru" and "Kokoro ga Sakebitagatterunda" started when the start of each show reveals a saddening past of the main character. Really well executed and saddening, definitely going to love this anime.

Ps. Really irritated at how her parents treated her, leaving out the fact of her mind reading; how could you change that much from lovey dovey parents to becoming imbeciles. Yeah were humans we change but it's so fucking crazy saying those kinds of things to your only child. LOVE HER YOU SHITS! YEAH YOU TRIED HELPING BUT AT LEAST BE FUCKING SUPPORTIVE INSTEAD OF FUCKING ABANDONING HER! I'm just saying gibberish at this point sorry.

I started tearing up only 6 minutes into the episode.... I'm glad it got a bit happier though. I originally thought this would just be a comedy because of some clips I've seen but damn.

I wouldn't have watched this show had it not been for a "trailer" that spoiled most of the first half of the episode. Supernatural+slice of life is already my cup of tea but now dammmn :D

Dayum, the backstory was dark and dramatic. Tho it looks like it will be a comedy focused show from now on.

Going from that depressing backstory to Manabe breaking the glass and bringing out the comedy. I loved it! The main pair is going to be so much fun to watch.

Forced victimization for the sake of drama... That's just a lame way of writing. I'll move on to something else then.

Same. The funniest part for me was the old woman who showed up just to tell Haruka she took the cat to a shelter and then left.
