Agreed.

Anyway, dat old Gainax feel.

I'm not the only one who felt like it ended too soon right?

Don't bother if you don't know how special effects were done without computers.

That.... was great. Holy shit. I got more than I expected. This is... just fuck yes.

Interesting concept, potential story-lines (the mystery, town, characters will all need exploring), intense and non-stop action with practical style of sketch animation, proper anime directing and fast-blooded pace. Hell the OST is better than AoT and GC by miles already. Granted some of the stuff contained here aren't new, but they're presented fresh with great tension and accessibility.

I'm no fan of hype, but when Trigger knows exactly what they're aiming for here, it's the first time I'm smiling while riding on the hype train. Great start.

Interesting....I guess this isn't my type of anime because I don't like the style of directing, though I love the action scenes. Not a huge fan of the typesetting either. I'll still keep watching since I'm a huge fan of Sawano Hiroyuki :) I might get used to the directing anyways and it could grow on me. Kind of agree with the person below me that it's really fast paced for the first episode.

Well,I guess I have to be that guy.

It was not as amazing as I expected.......please don't kill me.The show can get to the level of awesomeness I'm expecting from it,but I'm just not feeling it for the first episode.Why?The pacing was too fast for an introduction.In fact,everything felt fast.

I guess they didn't want to waste their time or something,I don't know.And I know I'm probably going to get hated for not instantly 10/10-ing this anime.Now,that we're passed the 1st episode,the pacing should be less of a noticeable issue.

Everything else is good.8.5/10
My Devianart

Oh & Space Brothers is still the best anime ever,in my opinion.Even when competing with Attack on Titan.

SUCH AWESOMENESS! Finally the first proper tv show by the figurative phoenix that has risen from the ashes once known as Gainax is upon us!

But seriously, I can't contain my exitement about what the coming episodes are going to offer especially with this being two-cours, the excessive animation and over-the-top action scenes had me screaming at the top of my lungs. With Kyousogiga, Yozakura Quartet and Kyoukai no Kanata this season really should prove itself as one of the most sakuga-heavy seasons in recent years.

Why? Everyone is entitled to their opinion. Shows like this tend to get loved and praised instantly though, so we'll be in the minority for a while.

OT: Oh how I missed Koshimizu Ami. That was a pretty good start I guess. Fast paced and lots of actions. Hopefully they keep the fanservice to a minimum though.

Guess it's just not my genre. But I'll wait a few episodes, can't judge an anime by its first episode, imo.

+1. Excessive hype can ruin shows to some people and I hope that this board doesn't get filled with useless unfunny topics like SnK ( shipping, yaoi crap, levi hair, misaka lips, etc)

Same here, I can't think of another series this season that I could like more than this one, if Trigger mantains this quality of course.
Currently watching everything that comes out to avoid missing something good...

Lol the episode was full of laughs and I loved every second of it.

Amazing start of the season. Animation and characters and fast pace talking of it was enjoyable. For Triggers first animation production, it was promising. I can't wait to see more of this.

That was pure insanity ... I fucking loved it!
My eyes orgasmed from the animation and the sick action.
Everything was so over the top and she was just pure badass deep fried in awesomeness.
I was like a fat diabetic kid in a candy store.
I I I I I still can't get over how awesome that was.
I hope they can keep this up.

OH and that outfit was so sexy.
I still have so many animes on my list, but everything else seems lackluster compared to this lol.

Wow. Over the top as expected and it didn't disappoint. I can't wait for the rest of the series now. Hope it maintains quality. Definitely liking the protagonist, badass females are my favorite. Don't know how I feel about the skimpy outfit though. Her dad is pretty creepy for keeping that around.

Nah I can see where you are coming from, although I'd say this was more an attention getter episode and everything will be explained (hopefully..)

I didn't watch Tengen Toppa, but I really liked this first episode. The action scenes are funny and also the rivalry between the main female characters might turn out to be very interesting in the future. Btw why do some people say Anime is saved? XD

Puts you right into the action, looks like they were intending for a strong start. At first, I was drawn in.. but then comes the fanservice. It's not that I "hate" fanservice, it's just that it makes things slightly less serious for me. Thus, I can't take the anime as serious as I was hoping to.

Will watch the next few episodes though just to see where it's going.

Not necessary but it helps.

Won't be dropping it so far as it was fun and might be decent series.

But with 26 episodes I'm not sure if they will have enough money/ideas to make it interesting.
