Just finished watching this.

I gotta say, it was awesome. The fan service was somewhat out of place but time time paradox part was interesting. Dem time machines?! Hell and S;G movie BDs just came out recently.

Artwork reminds me of Eden of the East somewhat though.

Yeah it reminds me of Eden of the East too. So did the design of the things around the cell phone or whatever.

I liked it though, there has to be a sequel sometime. Also surprised at how much I was able to understand without subs. So getting info from the future is different and won't cause a paradox unlike if he went himself. The change will just be considered as normal in the future depending on how he uses the information he gained.

Agree with the Higashi no Eden similarities in the art and theme. Interesting premise, could have been a full series ...

Pretty interesting premise. Agreed with the Higashi no Eden and Steins;Gate similarities. Sucks for the guy though that he finds out he's dead in the future

Pretty good and love the calling to the future theme. Will look forward to it.
"Children of Japan. And those who were once children. Listen! This is not a dream. This is not fiction. In reality, your superheroes were always fighting. To teach viewers courage and the meaning of justice! No matter how many enemies there are. No matter how strong evil is. Just remember. Does any another country have so many heroes? Has any another country been protected by multiple superheroes? Stand with me, friends! Remember when you used to watch your superheroes!
Once you may have given up this dream. But today, you can be a hero!"

Just finished watching Eden of the East which almost made me frustrated for the simple fact that they had squares on their noses, then picked up this and felt like crying.

This was good. You would think that Kido would be more careful after finding out what happens to him.

Glad I'm not the only one who thinks the two characters look exactly like Akira Takizawa and Saki Morimi of Eden of the East. Not sure if we should be surprised, it is the same director.

It was... ehh... it kinda picked up at the end, but it was a bit dull for me. Hopefully the next episode won't bore me, though I think that digital girl or whoever it is bothers me the most if only because I don't know what her role is.

Funny how everyone noticed that the characters look like the couple from Eden of the East.

The same kind of premise as Steins;Gate accept instead of sending texts to the past they talk to people in the future :P

Well that was alright, not bad for 7 mins and that AI girl is kind of funny.

Just like everyone said, I also thought that the character designs are just like Higashi no Eden. It probably is Umino Chika's work.

Anyways, interesting first episode. It must of feel a little eerie to have your first call to the future and your friend telling you that you're supposed to be dead D: Poor Kido. But seriously, running out of the building isn't enough, you should be running as far away from the building as you can. Looking forward to the next episode!

Not to sure about this anime it sounds interesting with the possibility of future knowledge but so far it was lacking a bit but it's only the first episode so i guess it's to early to judge.
The characters need some more introduction as well.

Not bad. They wasted a good amount of time in the beginning with the conversation between the upper people. That sort of stuff should be put in longer anime, not shorts like these. Nevertheless, I liked the art and fluid animation that was just like EotE. :) Looking forward to the next.

Not much of a plot formed yet but it seems interesting, though I wonder how it'll do as a three episode series.

The animation is very similar to the one used in Higashi no Eden and the main characters have almost the same design.

The plot looks decent.

too little, too rushed.
It seems that this series will have only 3 episodes, i dont see how they could make an interesting plot whit just 2 episodes left.
Anyway, im gonna see what happens.

And, why was that chick wearing a bikini? fan service? lol

Looking at Yuu in her bikini and lab coat on,
I could have sworn it was a special of "Eden of the East"
like most did

Making contact with a person in the future with a cell phone sounds like "Steins;Gate"

super steins;gate higashi no eden feel.
as if the female was the same character
"Urushibara Ruka. The mannerisms and voice of a woman... No... More feminine than any woman. But he's a guy. Taller than Mayuri, but so very thin... But he's a guy. Looks great in a miko outfit...
