The quick cuts along with the animation certainly reminded me of SZS but the story is completely different. Senjougahara is certainly a character I can like and the anime itself can only get better from here.

Oh yeah that OP was freaky as hell.

When i looked at the summer lineup I was pretty disappointed, the only one i was excited for was Spice & Wolf II, but I decided to take a chance on a few others. I just finished Bakemonogatari, and I was very very pleasantly surprised. It's strange, it's quirky, but it works and I like it.
I like the animation style, and it felt like it was a real camera lens you were looking through, very interesting.
The music was awesome too, I'm interested in what the opening will be, unless that was the opening. If it was, it was sort of strange.
I'm looking forward to watching more of this show :D

I was waiting for this
I love Nisioisin
The quality was great, loved the opening and animation. I laughed at all her writing utensils. I really like this so far. Can't wait for the next one.
Also liked the characters and music.

Again, SHAFT done it again with it fantastic animation. The Zetsubou-sensei-like animation type surely interest me a lot. This is certainly one of the best this season

Three minutes in and I am amazed by the animation quality so far. It looks better than some recent anime movies. That's saying a lot.

My god this was awesome, I hope it stays awesome the whole season. SHAFT-fanboyisms aside, the story looks pretty promising, and I can't wait to see office supplies conflicts.

It was freaking awesome! This series' animation is like a mix of ef- A Tale of Memories/Melodies and Sayonara Zetsubou Sensei, which produce pure awesomeness, thank you SHAFT. The first episode was intriguing but at the same time sort of vague, though the series looks to be promising nonetheless.

Very interesting. I particularly love the visuals and the BGM.
The ED sounds great too :).

My love is a stapler. <-- was what I thought. *starts to ship the main characters*

It was a summary of one of the series' prequel novels called Kizumonogatari, it deals with the blonde haired little girl who was once an adult vampiress. I believe it also details how the MC became a vampire and the events that surround it.

In that case, I hope they make an anime of the prequel series after this one is finished. It looked pretty awesome.

Meh. It's Shaft, so of course I'm in love with the direction. I found the art design to be a little empty, thought I liked the coloring and the character design. But like a few other people, I wavered between bored and intrigued. I have no clue what to expect, so I'll just leave it there and enjoy the ride.

Oh Shinbou, you sexy beast, you.

Stapler girl is awesome - I have a fetish for extremely unconventional weapons. Apathetic ex-vampire is fine, too. It's certainly off to a good start, but this series needs to stay unpredictable. I'm going to be bored if episode 2 is more of the same from episode 1.

Although I suppose it will be watchable for the eye candy, if nothing else.

Seconded. Easily better than anything I have seen this season. Art is amazing, animation is top notch, it actually kept me INTERESTED and made me want to watch more. Little kid in the corner seems interesting and will hopefully play a bigger part than what she did.

Also, best first 10 seconds to an anime, EVER.

The story seems interesting and the charcters look weird but promising.Hitagi reminded me of a Zetsubou Sensei character with her unemotional voice.The artwork is gorgeous and I hope this show will be good.

I had a feeling that this was going to be one of the series that I was going to pick up this summer. I wasn't too sure about why Tatsuya Oishi is the series director. From experience, It looks to me that Akiyuki Shinbo is the chief director. Anyways, Looks and sounds great. Probably because Toshiharu Iijima of (Natsu no Sora) is the art director and I thought that Satoru Kousaki did a great job with the music in Kannagi. So the talent is here, and the first episode reflected that. I haven't seen all to the SzS series yet, so that's probably why Hiroshi Kamiya's voice isn't bugging too much yet.

Looking forward to see what they will come up with next.

Actually, she have 5 kg without anything wearing. I guess one of reasons she brings all those things with her to compensate for her weight... another reason is because she looks badass that way. :D

Interesting first ep, but I'm not totally sure whether I like it or not. I'll stick around for a few more eps, it certainly looks nice.

+2 for it being SHAFT's work.
+1 for having an awesome first 10 seconds.
+2 for stunning artwork and music.
+1 for creepy, yet intriuging OP.
+1 for epic stairs scene.
+1 for staples in mouth. (LOL)
+1 for stuffing twenty pounds of school supplies in shirt. (extra LOL)
+1 for awesome ED.

= 10/10! I love the first episode. This looks quite promising.

Man this series is the spotlight of the season along with ZZS and Umineko....(two by SHAFT....)

The endless debate between fans and haters. At one point, after spending a lot of time on MAL, you just realize it's totally pointless.
