I don't know, he's better than Takumi from Chaos;Head.

At least Takumi had the excuse of being obviously insane. Keita can't even make that claim. It seems like he's a regular guy who just sucks harder than most.

At the end of the day, was he really insane? No, he was made to believe that because he lacked real memories. He suffered from dumbness.

Heh, well, I suppose I should say that Takumi's universe was more poorly constructed than Keita's. If I was in Takumi's position and had to deal with "Ir2" and shit, I'd break down from the realization that the universe was created by a B-grade sci-fi writer.

Meanwhile, Keita's universe isn't quite so inane (yet). The "Doppeliner" thing is weird, but not devastating. Since he has it easier than Takumi, I expect more from him.

You have a point there, but by episode 3 we didn't think it was that ridiculous in C;H. This could have just as much sci-fi cheesiness, and I'm starting to smell gouda.

I think it's going to get worse too, but it's not likely that it will get as ridiculous as Chaos;Head. I mean... nothing (except maybe Scientology) is as ridiculous as Chaos;Head.

This show i s really becoming hard to swallow, I hope it gets better but it isn't looking too good. (I liked chaos;head, though, minus the last episode and a half.)
The animation is good, but at the same time it just doesn't seem to connect. Seems like it's having the same problem as kannazuki (but less pronounced).

Why is this show getting compared to Chaos;Head? They're both totally different shows with totally different story's. There was a point/reason to Takumi being bat shit crazy in C;H, however theres not a point for this main character to suck hard and be stupid as a brick wall. He literately stands there with his hand in the air yelling out FIGHT HIM! You cant even really compare him to Yuji from Shakugan no Shanna either since Yuji actually did useful stuff.

Now I wont go as far as to say that this show is horrible, but I will say that it's not as interesting as other shows out right now. I don't think it can get any worse at this point though. If anything it will stay the same all the way through and just leave people with a bad taste in their mouths.

It's not, really. It's more of a debate whether Takumi or Keita sucks harder.

No protagonist sucks more than Takumi... I still remember the time he saw the new girl drop on the stairs and didn't even bat an eyelid and just walked on (-_-)...

This show is going downhill. First ep was pretty cool. Second was ok. This was like...really bad directing or something. It was a bit of a mess. Like for example...when the teacher is on top of Kuro, beating her in the face, and Keita is...standing at the doorway all like "no sensei! why are you doing this? im a fag!"
Another thing that stood out was when those same three were running through the school building or something...and there was no background music. It just made it feel incomplete.

Anyway, I don't see this getting better unfortunately. Especially with all the cliche's so far, Kuro being waaay too happy and food-obsessed for my liking, Keita being unbelievable typical and retarded, and also the fact that it reminds me too much of Shakugan no Shana, which was also gay.

I despise Sunrise to new levels, wtf are they thinking? If there are more school episodes then the director should meet the business end of a gun. The first episode was bearable despite the changes due to the action sequences, mood, and music. This had none of that along with a HORRIBLE synchro sequence. I just don't know what to think as I like Kuro and the manga enough to stick with it to see how badly they butcher it.

I kind of feel like they're cramming the whole story down our throats in just 3 episodes. Doppleliners, roots, tera, exceed, contracts, synchro idk. i feel like its just rushing through what everything is and it's meaning is. The fight scenes are well choreographed but plain and are basically street fights with sparks on the ends of their punches; it reminds of DBZ with with people flying everywhere from a punch and "movements so fast they're blurs". And not to mention the whole "Have the will to defeat your opponent and then we'll kick this guys ass" is really dull. I'm giving it one more episode and then I'm probably dropping it.

I'm disapointed with the show, really, I follow the manga and I like that, they are making things too diferent in the anime, for ppl who doesn't know, Keita is a little different in the manga, also, he has gotten better in the manga, so probably in the anime he will too

i totally lol'd over the synchro scene.
no kurokami fight scenes beat the kallen vs suzaku one though, sunrise, you are amazing.
i agree with whoever says that keita is a terrible main character.... the dog had to help him out to figure out what to do.... just because he lost his mother when he was young doesn't mean he needs to be stupid.
so kuro technically showed keita her boobs..... no, she did show him her boobs.... i guess she lacks common sense. she is still fucking awesome though.
kuro's outfits = fucking great.
the synchro scene also reminded me of sailor moon for some reason... the red characters + green background make it look kinda shitty.

oh well, time to go back to the manga.... now i know this won't be as awesome as the manga is claimed to be.... *sigh* i had hopes... crushed by sunrise it seems....

My reaction to this episode..

23mins episode felt like an eternal torture.

Guess this is going to be the most disappointed series of this season... I think Keita is the sole reason of why this show is giving a bad taste. Bad move from sunrise to change his personality. But I'll continue watching it and hoping it will improve later on...

I have to agree with naikou on that one. Who stands there watching a teacher continuously beat the living shit out of a girl lol? That made Takumi look far more better as a person then Keita lol.

if someone is getting beaten up in front of you, no matter who it is, do you just stand there? that was a bit annoying. why is he blaming her anyways, its his own fault he got involved.

finally, whoever the caretakers of this system are, they must have been sleeping on a job, if regular people know about it. i guess those who seek power will always find a way to find it.

Yeah, I have to agree with you guys.. I was going "wtf!? Why are you just standing there!?" Totally awkward, and rather a stupid scene.

The first two episodes were pretty good, but this one definitely brought Kurokami's rep down a bit. But the manga was pretty good, so I'm still going to watch it. Hopefully it gets better.

LOOOOOL

This is a joke :)
Im so sad cause the first episode was so fucking great. It was the first 10/10 that i scored almost 3 years now at MAL(10/10 for first ep i mean).In addition it was the only anime i had hopes for this season. But it turns out its goona epic suck... Well at least other animes that i had no hope for turns out to be good.

Wasn't a good episode, but not super bad either. Quite average for me. Keita's "lol let's just look at her getting the shit beat out of her for two minutes doing nothing" pissed me off.

This episode wasn't as good as the 2 previous ones, but it was OK. Keita is indeed quite similar to Takumi, but at a certain point even more retarded. Well, we'll just what happens, i'm not dropping this...

Looks like Keita's somewhat like an asshole. He's just watching Kuro getting her ass kicked. I thought he's going to bash the teacher's head with the fire extinguisher but.. what the hell are you doing?

Anyway, a so-so episode but I'll watch this till the end because I'm interested with the plot and Kuro.

I know that manga is different to the anime even though, I haven’t read the manga yet. After I watched the third episode, Good episode but the quality was dropped a bit to me, at least. However, it didn’t bother me at all. Keita was little annoying to me after I watched the teacher beats up to Kuro. I'm interested in this series because of plot and Kuro.

Even the school is filled with members of the evil Tribal End..



Battles aside, Kuro was eatting raw ramen? I wouldn't eat something like that unless there is nother better to eat. Raw ramen actually tastes awful..

this is turning out to be one of my favorite new anime shows of the season! (much better than Akikan. Seriously? A Melon Soda Magical girl? I guess some people have truely run out of ideas! Or really, REALLY likes melon soda!)

I like Kuro cause she's really cute, innocent, naive, funny, but gets the crap beat out of her on a daily basis! And her dog is just so cute!

And uncooked ramen... mmm.... thats some goooooood stuff! (kidding!)

That was what spoiled this episode for me. Other than that, it was fun to watch.
I had no expectations for these series from the beginning and I didn't read the manga, that's why I can just watch it. Or not watch it =)

I rarely drop any anime series I start, but this episode is really pushing me in that direction. Lame Keita, animation drop, lame synchro sequence, dull fight scenes. I don't think I need to say anymore.

I'll probably give it another episode or two to redeem itself.

I didn't really like the episode, but it's kinda cute how the story is developing, with Kuro getting used to living normal ^^

But I have to say, I didn't like the fighting scene at all, it looked like not much effort was put in to it and also had no feeling(?) hope it gets better though...

There's nothing to say that hasn't been said already, I didn't like this episode. I found Kuro somewhat annoying and Keita stupid for standing there and not doing anything. You'd think the baddies would go after him for once to threaten Kuro with.

That was a weaker episode, I didn't like the magic transformation scene and hope he'll actually do something in later episodes rather an just be her battery.

Keita's an annoying little boy, isn't he? ._.

I figured it was common sense that if they shared power, he would... get some too.
If I was Keita, I'd friggin' LAUNCH myself at that teacher and punch him in the face instead of telling Kuro to do it.
...Kuro's kind of like his Pokemon, isn't she? :D ♥

Plus, lol, if I saw a fire extinguisher, I'd.. probably hit the guy with it, not.. spray him. ._.
I half expected Kuro's flame punches to be ineffective because of his crappy fire extinguisher bit.

Akane looks like she's.. way older than Keita, so I definitely didn't expect jealousy.
Although maybe since she's so close.. y'know. But if she likes him ROMANTICALLY, then.. she was probably a shotacon when she met him. :'D
At least, I would be. Little!Keita was adorable in the pictures.

Also, I had a creepy boyfriend who ate ramen raw, so that scene caused awful memories. ._.

Yeah, animation quality went down, and I'm glad I'm not the only one who noticed. Especially that pole scene.
On a related note, I actually thought the music-less fight scene was great, since it made her seem more powerless and totally contrasted with the fight scene when Kuro and Keita were synchro'd. :D

Also, wait, Kuro wears shorts?
I thought that was always a cleverly-placed Shadow.
Maybe they just bought her some in this episode. ¦D;

Kuro is becoming more and more interesting, it is if she been starving the whole time to think EVERYTHING is delicious. Sucks that Kuro is weak right now due to the contact she formed and can only be strong when Keita wants to fight. The syncro scene last to short. T_T
