THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
----------------------------------------
I have been reading the manga so I was curious to see how it will go. Not bad for a start I suppose.

Hello flowers~
Had to facepalm myself a few times during the Opening Ceremony. Oh snap:

Typical start I guess. I hope Banri can get used to his new school life though. Doesn't seem easy so far.

One of my personal anticipated shows going into the season. Really enjoy the manga and it's J.C Staff doing a RomCom which I typically end up liking(AnoNatsu, Sakurasou, etc).

Not too much of a red alarm considering it's the only the first episode but a lot of Banri's charm was missing from the anime. Hopefully J.C Staff didn't remove it completely but he's more snarky/witty and goofy in the LN/manga which contributes to the comedy and why Kogo and Banri is my favorite character dynamic. It also makes it more believable why Kogo falls for Banri in the first place

If they're going for a more serious/grounded take then I guess that change is consistent with the tone. Won't know until I see more though

I haven't read the manga for this but I like the way its set out at the mo. A college based rom-com by none other then J.C Staff.

Banri seams to have had a typical Freshman first day by being lost, late, confused and befriended by a couple of unique chars.

I can't help but think that Kouko is a mix between Taiga and the meme "Overly attached girlfriend" .. that image is not going to disappear any time soon...

Edit: How could I forget about the OP and the ED?!? They are brilliant and ones that I wont be skipping every episode

This has a very Sakurasou'y vibe to it which all in all is a very good thing for me assuming I consider it to be my favourite "generic" slice of life anime, very good first episode and has now turned into one of my favourite first eps this season so far.

this looks good I didn't think I'd like it that much but now I think I will

I don't know how they could've not noticed her sitting behind them haha I was like that girl looks just like her but it must not be if they didn't notice her when they sat down or when she sat down

also that person at the end sucks at driving motorcycles, even if he/she was trying to hit him they should've turned the bike before hitting him so they don't fly off the bike on impact

Feels like I'm going to enjoy this series. Well the first episode was pretty epic anyways.

I wonder if this series is going to have 2 couples instead of a love triangle.

Mitsuo's impersonation of Kouko was more exaggerated than I remember when reading the manga, the sound effects had me laughing. Ishikawa Kaito <333 so many roles this season, I didn't even realize. Also, Linda-senpai, I love her, she's so nice. So far everything's just like the manga, but I think even better because I think the comedy fits well animated.

edit: forgot to mention, I love the OP and ED, the songs are cute ^^

I was expecting this Anime. Not a bad start at all. I honestly thought Kouko was going to be a little annoying but she seems good so far. The art is okay, nothing too fantastic. I have a feeling I'm going to enjoy this one.

Mitsuo, blah blah blah blah blaaaah!
There were some pretty funny parts this episode. Lol at the latin music club girls ganging up on Banri.
I'm liking the characters in this series. Kouko and Chinami are cute.
Really like the OP and ED. Good start to the show. That cliffhanger.

Great first episode, I unexpectedly enjoyed that quite a lot. Characters, OST and animation are all great so far.

Looks like this will be a fun series to watch

Go Linda, enchant Banri with your looks and win his heart.

On a side note, Banri is a pimp, got 2 blown kisses by Linda and Kouko. Kouko seems like she can be a Yandere and if she doesn't get what she wants well things can go ugly. As for Linda, I really hope she gets in a relationship with Banri she seems to like Banri already. A blown kiss usually means something good.

YES!! I love the fact that this will be 24 eps :D...I'm expecting more of this than I was expecting from Sakurasou.

And I like the start more for now ^^

Banri isn't a bad MC. And Koko is sooooo beautiful <3

I really can't wait to see how she'll leave Mitsuo and fall for Banri? The development should be totally awesome.

I really have high hopes for this as a romance series.

But what was Dat ending??? O_O

Loved Both OP and ED...Op has so many cute romantic scenes.
And ED has so much HOTNESS!! KOKO is <3<3

24 episodes, feels bit like Sakurasou (or Toradora but it seems it has same author) and none of characters felt irritating or out of place.
Good start I can say.

Most certainly will be watching this, it does have potential.

PS. I was fun to hear Ibuki Kido as Chinami.

Interesting start. So, they're going to do it slowly... if this sets the pace for the rest of the episodes, then I can declare myself happy.

Quite fine start, with a few rough edges - can't really say I expected more or less. The Toradora-ish vibe is so deeply felt :>

Yes, I noticed it as well. I don't think they're going to remove it, of course, since it's a big part of the story. I expected it to be a little more subsided though, because of the time constraints. I guess we'll just have to see how this evolves.

Some big spoiler maybe? Though I guess it's more of a combination between obvious and expectance...


And since everyone missed to put some words about the OP and ED, I tried not to, haha. Very good, Toradora-ish - not too shabby, while not groundbreaking either. I must say I like them, though they're not something I'm going to listen all day long to too.

Wow, stalker level = Homura.

At least she is pretty, charismatic and cheerful, though obviously not a good observer.

Anyway, seems like fun, hopefully it's not too cliche. (It does start on a good side being on college instead of highschool.)

Romance anime tend to not sit well with me. Too many greenhorn high-school kids/melodrama for my tastes.
Law school is a bit of a nice change and these characters aren't too bad.

The Toradora comparisons make me cringe because I hate that show, and Sakurasou I liked, but then the 2nd cour-happened...
Hopefully this well set itself apart from that those.

It feels like Toradora but in collage. The characters seem ok but hopefully its not going to be to predictable.

I like it more than light novel. Maybe because it looks more dynamic animated. They foreshadowed one general thing but showed us a bit of it. Too bad best girl for me(*** ** *******) won't win this time (((.


Yeah, seriously how long have you been posting on Animelist to know not to drop spoilers that aren't in the episode your discussing?? drop those hints in spoiler tags.



As for the show, It's got a good vibe to it. I do hope there's an outcome at the end of the 24 episodes.

When Banri was smiling at Kouko/Golden girl i kept saying "RUN AWAY, DON'T DO IT! you have too much to live for"

Anime has been way too over-saturated with high school students in the past few years so it was a nice change of pace having the story taking place in a college setting (similar to Gin no Saji from last season), so while the visuals weren't particularly impressive the college parts still managed to make me smile.

I found out a couple episodes in Gin no Saji took place in highschool. It threw me off.

Anyways, great first episode. Nice to see a 24 episode anime that I like. It has potential to be as good as Sakurasou and maybe just maybe as good as Toradora.

Oh god, I don't like how this series is all about Koko, both the OP and ED is about her...

I like Linda! It's a shame that she won't end up will the main.
And would this become a harem? I hope it won't be a generic one....

Looks promising, gonna stick around. Although was it just me, or did the background music and sound effects drown out the dialogue from time to time for everyone? Not helping with my listening practice.

This was a good first episode, it was pretty funny and better than what I expected, but the ending of this episode gave me some chills down my spine, although, I'm interested so far to see how this will go.

Interesting first episode, it looks like it has some promise, but it all depends on how they execute it. It seems like there will be some complicated love triangle arising and I'm fond with very very few love triangles.

HAHA yeah, that girl seems dangerous.

Anyway, it was refreshing watching this first ep, I liked it, mostly after watching that boring 1st ep of IS.
Being as impatient as I am, I have to ask, is the manga being translated? and if it is, is it up to date? 'cause I would like to read it, thanks.

It was a decent first episode. It didn't blow me away, nor did I think it was hilarious, but it had some nice bits and it showed off at how great a guy the lead (Banri) is.

Not sure what to think of Koko yet. I don't really like the rich girl personalities but hers seems somewhat funny considering how obsessive she is over Mitsuo.

Why? seriously, why?, I'm not reading the manga, nor the LN so why would you spoil that? It might be obvious (or not) for you but come on.


Did you watch the OP? Otherwise I wouldn't have said it

I didn't pay much attention to it, just listened to the music, so I watched it again and I stand corrected, it was implied in the opening she'll fall for him so I deleted my complaint, sorry for that.

I doubt J.C Staff will remove a character trait that represents Banri as who he is.
The opening also shows a bit of there silly faces.

I'm guessing Koko has good reasons why she's acting this way and it's not just her being delusional.

I was really surprised. It started off really slow and the main character kind of seems annoying, but the last 5 minutes really makes up for it. I'm excited for next weeks episode and to find out Tada's back story.
