So, so far the first two episodes are out.
Been quite confusing since the second episode didn't follow the events of the first.
And as we see in the openings some of the characters look much older then in the first.

So i would like to know ur own opinion of this new anime

they explained in the puppet thing at the end of episode 2 that episode 1 actually takes place later in the series and they'll get back to it later on.

so far so good as long as you ignore the first episode i guess lol.

Definitely this anime is one of those strange kinds of shows where it makes no sense in the beginning but later on the show will/should get better. But the characters were pretty cute to see

epi 1 didn't make any sense at all

I like it, it became one of my favs.! But still, I also find it confusing, on account of the first episode is different than the 2nd one But overall I'll still give it (100/100)

I will agree that Crunchyroll probably should have broadcast the 00 episode, since that one sets the regular setting (present time) and the main character (Koyomi).

Still, the opening credits are so full of Koyomi--and an older, full-figured Yumiko to help set the time-- that I have a little trouble understanding why there's so much confusion.

The way I see it, episode by episode:

1. Koyomi--who gives every indication she knows she's in the past--is back 6 years from present, trying to find Misa at the same time Yumiko is taking her first steps into wizardry, and being targeted for it. Yumiko meets Koyomi for the first time. Despite her confusion at Koyomi's friendliness, Yumiko is impressed by Koyomi, who can actually do magic.

What makes this episode most confusing I suppose, is that it jumps around in terms of hours on December 24th 6 years ago: from the two girls fighting together against Jean-Jaques Gibaltes, to a point 6 hours earlier where Yumiko was on the run by herself--who uses a flashback to a point a couple hours earlier to explain where she was ultimately heading (and why she's doing it commando-style) before it became a hunter/hunted scenario.

By the end, the story hadn't come back to where it was at the beginning of the episode (i.e. where both younger Yumiko and Koyomi together fight Gibaltes and things weren't looking good), so I figure the Chrismas Eve Past story will be revisited...eventually.

2. Koyomi takes her first steps into wizardry, by seeking out Misa (thanks to an old handbill). Although it should have been easy, Koyomi fails the 'entrance exam', but a fateful visit to Akihabra (provided by Koyomi's class rep Kaho) provides her an opportunity to see Misa's magic at work and gives her a second chance to prove she has what it takes to use magic code.

3. Koyomi meets Yumiko for the first time. Koyomi is impressed by Yumiko from the get go, because she does magic so effortlessly [see Ep. 1 for the irony here]--Yumiko's exotic maturity(?) is also not lost on Koyomi.

4. Misa determines that the panty-raiding daemons were caused by a virus-rewrite of one of her own codes and meets with a fellow Modern mage at a water park to find out whodunnit. She drags everyone with her; Koyomi attracts the attention of an innocent, but still dangerous warped-code jini.

In addition, a couple of things to remember: in Episode 3 Yumiko first encounters a laptop full of Modern code and is given the cryptic message "Deus in Machina" (literally God IN Machine). In Episode 4, Misa's infromation broker figured out who the worm writer was (Jinzai Tsukumo)...and that he's already dead.

A brilliant Modern Mage trying to use Code and computers to be immortal and omnipotent?
Time will tell, but it could certainly be shaping up that way.

Hope this helps the easily confused...

as far as i can it isn't. its a new series, people just seem to be confused about the time frame due to the first episode but after a couple of episodes you start to understand what was going on in that first episode.

Not bad so far watching third episode know. Need something new since everything coming out is starting to sick. It also seems that the main character is going to go back in time some how aka first episode
