Wonderful action, background music, settings, and animation. I loved the atmosphere they created, but there are already a few aspects holding this series back. Definite potential though.

Great first episode. Even though I struggled to understand what was going on through the first half, this series does look like it's going to be a good one.

That was indeed quite an intense episode from beginning to end. The animation, and music were great, and I thought the OP theme was hot after hearing it in its entirety. I just wish there was some more Alphard in this episode. Im looking forward to seeing Maaya Sakamoto playing a major villian for once.

The synesthesia(spelling) thing is really interesting too. Im pretty sure thats why Canaan's eyes appear to turn red. I guess it has something to do with her past...maybe. Can't wait till the next episode

Im impressed, this was a pretty good episode. Visuals and animation seem like the best this season imo. Plot seems alittle complicated though. Well im looking forward to the next episode.

I know its only been one episode but do you guys think it this is the kind of show that'd probably be best watched after its finished airing or is it a show you could watch weekly?

Sweet, good EP1. Loved the action.

But the towns people are bothering me lol, they blind or something?

Edit : Ohh, so they were intentionally ignoring it.

Well, since it's TYPE-MOON, yeah it looks like another variation. Kinda reminded me of matrix lol


I'd like to point out that Project CANAAN doesn't belong to TYPE-MOON. It's just that Nasu wrote the script and Takeuchi did the character designs. 428, the original work, isn't a TM project. Nasu helped wrote a part of the script that's all.

People seem to get the impression that TM produces anime....

I actually really liked this pilot episode It pretty much showed all of the main plot characters. Gave us the general sense of where the main point of the story is headed with out giving it away, then left leaving you wanting more.

Good start. Good characters. Good art.

Can't wait for the next episode.

Very nice first episode... it was definitely entertaining. The animation was top notch imo, and everything felt very clean so hopefully that will stay through the entire series. The characters also seem to be very interesting as well as the story. The only downside was that nothing made any sense but that is to be expected from the pilot episode.


The synesthesis seems like another cleverly disguised name for special super human character but even so it still appears to be very interesting. Anyway I'm definitely looking forward to the rest of this series now.

Hey, first episode, I survived. Enough said. Actually, I enjoyed it alot. The only problem was Canaan was a little flat.

This episode was awesome. I honestly have no idea what was happening in it, but that doesn't even matter. The animation was amazing, the littlest things were so detailed, and the characters are pretty interesting. Before I saw this episode, I thought this anime would be pretty generic with gun fights and whatnot, but wow, just on the first episode it's already surpassed by expectations. I just that doesn't change as it progresses, but I really don't see that happening.

I know that TM doesn't produce anime, but I played several of their Visual Novels [Fate/Stay Night, Tsukihime]

Pretty intriguing first episode. Even though they didn't do much in the way of plot or characters, they really amped it up in style and grabbing my attention. Along with a lot of the craziness that was going on and the stuff with synesthesia(sp?), I'm hooked.

Gorgeous. The art style was enough to get me interested in this.

I don't really have the best idea of what's going on, but I'm sure it'll all be explained soon. Can't wait for more.

Loving this. Multiple factions involved with their motivations and intentions slowly revealed throughout the season. The art is great and the action scenes are vibrantly fluid. It reminds me of Darker than Black.

This was a wonderful first episode. Production values appear to be pretty high with some amazing animation. Characters seem alright, doesn't look like anyone of them are supremely annoying at the first episode, always a good sign. The action sequences were simply awesome. I can't wait until the next episode. I have fairly high expectations for this show now.

Nothing yet... maybe I was just in a foul mood while watching this first ep... either way, I'll probably like it, just not LOVE it.

Gotta say, i was expecting alot and i was not disappointed. I haven't gotten into a fast paced action anime an a while so I know this will be fun to follow. And having Nasu's name on the script (even though 428 isn't originally his) just gives me unlimited confidence in CANAAN.

Synesthesis - a person that can use all independent five senses at the same time. For example, they see colors from letters and sound take different shape for them. It differs from person to person.

quoted from anime. Looks like Canaan is one of those, I guess that explains the eyes. ThoughI wouldn't mind having another badass Mystic Eyes.


Where did you get the quot from btw? Anyways great start with this one its a keeper.

the quote was from the anime itself if your weren't paying attention.

[EDIT2]
I'm expecting a lot from this anime i just hope it doesn't disappoint.

[EDIT1]
hell of a way to end the episode, makes you want to continue watching to find out whats going to happen next.

What we can say after one episode is that the direction,a animation and music are especially excellent, maybe even better than Sword of the Stranger. Also the themes are pretty similar for now, we can immediately see that Masahiro Ando is the director. Oh and we can feel TYPEMOON's contribution everywhere too thanks to the art and script.

On the other hand, as a lot of people have already mentionned, I don't understand what's happening on screen, so I can only hope it will improve in terms of script clarity and character development. For now, it's all good though.

In every age, in every place, the deeds of men remain the same.

Looking good so far~ The beginning was weird.. Those guys in animal hats flipping out and dying and crap when they were exposed. And then those other guys made one of them jump off the bridge and they jumped in after him o__o Wtf.

Hope u will be able to appreciate it soon. Well, I think we're in the same boat as up 'til now, I only was able to LIKE it & 50% of my love is due to Liang's awsomeness but guess I'll wait for nxt ep to place my final judgement



If he's not with us, he's AGAINST us!!!
