It seems cool, even though it's Yuri, and I'm straight lol. Well, it doesn't really matter, since I'm a guy watching 2 girls hooking up, but ANYWAYS, the show seems really good. I can imagine some intense(as in action, dramatic, meaningful) moments in here.

What are your guys' thoughts?

If it manages to have that same art style as the picture I'll deftly love it.

Just hoping it won't turn into Mirai Nikki with lesbians, that would be horrible. The premise sounds dumb enough, only the yuri can save this show if it's well made. Also, art looks good.

Yuri.....

I am going to love watching this fail hard and rank lowest in sales. Wonder if it will even make it halfway to the manabi line....

Well either way, it will be fun seeing 4chan tear this show apart.

Yeah, like when they "teared" Yuru Yuri apart and keep "tearing" it apart with its daily threads.

Personally, I don't think this show will be all that bad.

I don't know anything about this anime

But judging from this picture, I would say this anime has the potential to be a masterpiece

I'm watching for the lesbians. I was excited for Sakura Trick for that reason, but then I saw the PV, and was pretty turned off by it. So, I'll just watch this instead.

The original creator is Kouga Yun, says enough for me since i love loveless.
I'll see, maybe it will be ruined for me because it's yuri

What's wrong with yuri?

Oh wait, you're from /b/. Nevermind, please go back there.

This looks like Sakura Trick with a plot and potentially better art design.

Sakura Trick was the first "Central-element Yuri" anime series since late
2009, so your comment is a useful starting point for a discussion even if
Sakura Trick is a bit different.

- Sakura Trick is set in a public two-sex school whereas
- Akuma no Riddle is set in a private girls' school

Japanese Wikipedia classifies . . .
. . . Sakura trick as "Yonkoma"+"School"+"Yuri"
. . . Akuma no Riddle as "Action"+School"+"Yuri"

"Yonkoma" (or "four-panel") by definition has no plot and is mostly gags.

In Sakura Trick (although the series isn't over yet), no character kills any
other character.

My guess is that Akuma no Riddle is going to be like "Maria-sama ga Miteru"
( 2004 / マリア様がみてる ) except with sharp, blood-stained knives. So . . .
a very interesting story but where the Yuri is more subtext than explicit.

The "Manabi Line" is equal to 2899 copies per volume, which includes both
Blu-rays and DVDs. "Gakuen Utopia Manabi Straight!" ( 2007 / がくえんゆー
とぴあ まなびストレート! ) is "School"+"Cute Girls Doing Cute Things". It was a
bit before its time since the current boom in CGDCT started roughly in 2009
with "K-On!". Given that "Sakura Trick" was the first "Central-element Yuri"
anime series since the end of 2009, I think that the several Yuri series that
are being produced this year are a bit of an experiment. So, indeed, mixing
in Yuri may not really be a selling point in combination with Action. For one
thing, in some parts of the world there are legal and societal reasons for
which purchasing a Yuri-themed Blu-ray or DVD could be a problem. But
leaving Yuri aside, uniformed high school girls running around killing each
other is something that the whole world can enjoy.

In defense of "Manabi", it is a fantastic series if you are into CGDCT.

I don't care about the yuri or whether it's all girls. I only care for the assassination plot and that's the reason why I'm watching it in the first place. The setting and characters isn't bad at all. I'd rather say it's good.

I'm still waiting on a decent fansub group to pick it up.

Also this thread is meaningless when there are only 2 episodes and there are discussion threads.

That it has the potential to be a great show or a total disaster.

I hope it will be edgy and I hope for blood, a lot of blood.

Manga is disappointing in that regard. Hope they'll edge the events up.

Whether it will end well or not, it's better to see how everything's going to play out.
The one thing that I'd love to see is a lesbian yandere.

Just caught up. Loving this series like crazy: The episodic structure, the pacing, music, animation. Even the characters, even though their development has to be toned down due to the length of the series. If I had to nitpick it would be the way they flashback to every plot point, if they didn't do that it would have increased it's rewatchability exponentially.
Have you worshiped our Empress today?

Too stupid to take seriously, and too boring to turn my brain off and enjoy the action.

It's just sloppy. It's like a boring Mirai Nikki.

Fortunately not as bad as Mirai Nikki and actually fun(ny) enough to not be considered boring.
