Ok I think I have found a pretty decent anime of the unknown animes this year. Seriously this anime is just.......well...interesting to be perfectly honest. I know some of you will watch just the first minute of it and go like "WTF!" cuz the dialogue is just so fast paced and its kinda hard to understand whats going on but....Im almost certain if you watch it till the end you will find it interesting. I dont know an anime I can compare it to to give yall an idea of what its similar to but its dialogue heavy like bakemonogatari but its nothing like it.

So anyway its about this unnamed main character who is trying to basically get this girl named Akashi-san to like him. He has a *best friend* named Ozu and I just got to say right now....I have never seen such a horrid face for an anime character in my life! Makes me think its like a mini Gecko Moria from one piece xD! So he takes some advice from a so called God as he is a matchmaker to help people find love. Anyway this anime in my opinion was pretty funny!

What are your thoughts on this anime? I think its DEFINITELY worth a watch! So crazy!

I think the crazy fast dialogue is distracting and can be annoying whenever the main character is having one of his many many internal monologues. so even though the first episode is not half bad, I didn't enjoy it that much. but I'll probably go on watching. I'm hoping in the next episode, the main character would quit talking non-stop to himself.

Yea, the whole fast-talking was irritating for me too. I have never had to pause the anime just to read the subtitles on so many occasions cept for SZS. But I think it has potential. Just need an open mind to enjoy this.....(Just like any other anime xD.)
But I dont think this anime will stop its fast paced dialogue nor stop the main character from talking to himself.
If this is any defense for him.....Kyon from Haruhi was very popular in no small part due to how he talked to himself. Everyone liked that (Of course there were a billion other things about him that were awesome). But yea this anime could get annoying real fast to some peeps

Your right it is an interesting anime, the only think I didn't like was the fact that I had to keep pausing it because they were talking fast. but other then that I would defiantly recommend it

Episode 1:

This sounds interesting. I liked the fast pace of Sayounara Zetsubou Sensei. I haven't seen Bakemonogatari but I think you said it was similar to Arakawa in another thread and that is probably my favorite new show this season. I'll check this one out after I finish Fate/Stay Night.

Edit: Ooo, didn't realize this was a new series too. Guess I'll just add it to my weekly watch list

Yea, Im pretty sure if you like Arakawa then you will like Bakemonogatari. But as far as yojouhan-shinwa-taikei goes...I consider it one of the best tier 2 animes. And what I mean by that is like..it cant be put up next to like K-ON!! or Angel Beats or Baka Test...or something like that. Now of course there has only been 1 episode out so Im not totally sure...but I think its gona be decent!
(I need to check out Fate/Stay night....heard that anime was just great)

Well episode 2 was confusing as anything. I can understand if people want to drop this series right now since all in all...its just not ur typical anime or anything real decent. Ill still be watching tho. However if any1 was confused by the plot...since it doesnt seem liek episode 2 follows right after episode 1, I think its because its just showing how the main character never took his *opportunity* with Akashi-san or something so he keeps repeating his school life until he does or something. Reasons I think this is because of the old lady who keep telling him this fortune and also do to the fact that everytime the episode ends...it rewinds and then goes to the credits. But yea I think this anime is only gona appeal to a very small audience. Like theres nothing that really stands out for thisanime (cept maybe Ozu's face xD). I'll still be watching but yea this is definitely a tier 2 type of anime

I actually like it even more after watching episode 2. It's funny and interesting. I don't mind pausing once or twice to look at the subtitles anymore. ^_^

and I really like the ending song. it sounds like something from the 90's.

really? I woulda thought you woulda stuck with your original impression and advance it. Well Im glad to see you like it! :D

I know I gave episode 2 a kind of a negative review....but when I typed that....I was trying to put myself in the shoes of the majority who watch this show....because if I just put only what my personal thoughts were...something tells me people would think Im always bias in a good way to anime whether it sucks or not. But yea I enjoy this anime very much really. I think what I enjoyed the most was Akashi sans flipping out when a moth lands on her xD

Episode 3 well....I think we can get the jist of it. Just another tale of what would happen if the main character chose a differentclub to join. Well all I can say is that I feel too dam sorry for him. No matter what he fucks up or gets shafted. Dont really know what else to say.....um.....what the hell was the purpose of that plane thingy anyway? Seems like Akashi-san is perfect at everything she does. I wonder how many clubs this guy is gona join xD

I have been watching it.. but I really do not know what to say about it.. I love close to the end wen all the phantom people stack up on him as if he was going to do something, then he freaks out and runs away.. the phantoms just fall over the place than get up and run after him.
