THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
----------------------------------------
A very random way to start this, but at the end, when they starting talking about the skys and such, now that's what I know that Air is known for.

Damnit! Don't die without my permission!

There doesn't seem to a whole lot to this, yet. I've heard that it's not as strong as Kanon and Clannad, so I'm not expecting much.

Actually I have to disagre about it not being stronger than Kanon or Clannad. Unlike those two, Air is a very multi-layered non-linear story unlike any of the other two Key adaptations.

You'll see soon enough. For now, piko piko ^^

I think the first episode of Air was very nice and funy.

Don't talk to me about character development if Kaizuka Inaho or Slaine Troyard are in your favorites.

Seemed alright, nothing special though. It was enough to make me want to see more since I need a short series to finish up before school gets out.

I had to watch this episode out of sync so I didn't get much...T-T

Well, it was pretty good! I'm going to keep watching it when I get time. I've heard it's really good. I know I really liked Clannad and I've heard it's a bit like that.

Nice and funny :)

First of all, I think that CLANNAD and Kanon are much more better than this. Because Kanon and CLANNAD are the latest ones and Air is old.

But, this is just too good and I think these are always on par. Way to go Kyoto Animation and KEY!

This anime has a very strong visual novelish - feeling to it. I know it's made out of one, but it stands out much more than in other adaptations in my opininon.

I laughed my ass off at the "Yukito-san is like a leaf!" part.

This looks much better than the movie.. The least to say, it appears that there are other female characters in it aside from Haruko and Misuzu. In the movie, the cast was very small. It was like Yukito babysitting Misuzu everyday for the sake of a free place to stay and free meals, not mentioning a drinking session every night.

I liked this anime. It has many fun scenes.
I already saw Clannad and Kanon, so i was looking for something like these.
Since they were all produced by KyoAni, i'm expecting this to be very enjoyable.

Also, I saw some resemblance with some characters from Clannad...
Yukito looks somewhat like Akio, and Kamio looks like Sanae.
What i mean is they have similar (not perfectly matching) hair styles and body type.
Anime ga daaaai suki!!! Computer Engineering. Japan is awesome!!!

dont remember how many times i rewatched this, but since a blue ray dvd vers is out i give it a try again :3 totally love it, and realy nostalgic. it was the first time where moe comes on my mind. also where anime wasnt a show for kids anymore, not only entertainment. never watched before something like air, emotions, story, sound, animation, everything is perfect. was my first kyoani so lets patiently wait for next epi :3

Yukito seems to be the least approachable out of the three protagonists of Kyoyo Animation's adaptations of Key's VNs.

I hate to be the bad guy here lol. But i honestly don't see why this series is rated so high. This episode was actually good though and it got me hooked, the next few were pretty decent enough but it quickly deteriorated in my opinion. I'm on episode 8 right now, the last 4 or 5 episodes weren't all that great. Hopefully it gets better. Things are looking a bit better, but to say this is on par with Kannon and Clannad is just crazy!

ok...i have nothing much to say about this mostly because i know 0 about this anime :)

nice way to start,i like the personality of that crazy girl :)

strange dude was fine i guess,and the crazy dog girl was also like-able :)

anyway,i'm looking forward to the next episodes for some Key magic =)

i don't expect this to be as good as Clannad anyway...i don't think i will ever see something as good as clannad lol

PS:i like the BGM and the graphics quality overall...

I've decided to rewatch Air, because I really feel like it and I want to see if I can give it a higher score. I think it's actually one of the first anime series that I saw.

I love the opening and I always will. The song is so wonderful, it's on the same level as the opening for ~After Story~, same singer too.
Characters are good so far, very mysterious and funny. Misuzu is so cute! gao~
Animation is fluid and I like the art but the eyes are huge, lol.. I never took a notice to it in Clannad, but they really stand out in this. I have no problem with it though, I kinda like it.

They seems to cram in quite a bit in this first episode. Heard alot of mixed feelings for this series, with some saying it's brilliant and others saying it's awful.

For the record, Marmite is disgusting...

I am a huge fan of Clannad, so I decided to pick Air up. I like it so far. Everything's still a little vague but I'll understand soon. xD

Also, Misuzu is such an AIRhead. Bwahah! Ahem... >.<

lol and I thought Yuuichi was a mean character.
Typical start for a key adaptation. Similar to Kanon and Clannad, this show also has great music (OP, ED, and OST).
I have high expectations for this show.

What the hell is Potato? My first reaction was "What is a new Pokémon doing in this show?", due to it repeating "Piko" over and over instead of barking. What a strange dog...

That aside, I think it started out pretty well. More than anything, I loved the atmosphere of the episode and I guess i really like Yukito too.

I decided to watch air, as so many fans of Clannad seem to recommend it. I really like the introduction, very bright, and warm. As far as first episodes go, it isn't a disaster, but it still feels the show isn't kicked off by it. I've been told that's not uncommon in anime's and that it can take a few shows to find its stride. I do get similar feelings to the beginning of Clannad though.

One question about the little girl Michiru

Which character? Yukito is in his early to mid 20s and Haruko is probably late 20s to early 30s.

Odds are she made him drink with her cause she is somewhat lonely.

I wouldn't have pegged him as that old, but for some reason it still struck me as odd, and you may be right, she may have been 'lonely'. Of course when i googled for Japans legal drinking age, it admittedly that a lot of people apparently don't abide by it, so maybe its a moot point in their culture. (although if he's that older, it kind of creeps me out a bit more on his interactions this episode. Well, thanks for the info, It still has potential.)
