This. Other than my nitpick on her voice acting role, this show has two directions.

Direction 1: Become a mediocre harem show (which I don't mind much)

or

Direction 2: Become awesome with guns and stawf.

The first episode shows nothing much but the protagonist running from the "Butei Killer" and meeting up with the title character. A flashback occurs explaining the main character's situation, and his daily life. Nothing interesting here, but it got better towards the end. When the action kicks in, things got more fun and enjoyable. At least till the tsundere-brat talks.


Well, a harem might actually work, but i feel this show is trying to be more serious than comical, but then again a plot revolving around the characters being armed to the teeth is going to make the harem awkward. Even more so with Tsun Rie.

Don't get me wrong i love Rie Kugimiya as a VA, she's played some characters i'll always remember but she's just coming across with the watered down feeling as usual, or atleast in this show.
I sense this show trying to be serious, and having a rocky road trying to get there


i see where your going with this index/railgun seems to be their biggest as of now due to the fact that it's so mainstream and popular and well hmm your right i hated okamisan as well, "i don't hate you ending bs blah blah blah" JC staff can pull it off they have done it from the light novels like rialgun and index as well as toradora it's not impossible so i am going to stay a bit optimistic to it, not much but some.

I was taken aback by how similar the story was to Toradora! I gotta say so far I'm loving it, it feels like Toradora with action; I might be one of the few that wants this story to go heavier on the romance than on the action x) Btw, was I the only one surprised that the main guy has balls? xD

Definitely a worth while watch for me personally. I just like this anime style and its an action one that is decent. All the anime is season is harems or slice of life.

First Impression - O.K.

So far we have only seen the first episode. I would be willing to see more to know the direction it is going. We'll just have to wait and see if it will get more interesting. Knowing me, I'll probably be seeing the whole thing anyway.

An okay episode. Lest action than the first. A bit disappointed, but the next ep probably won't be. >.<

Is the protagonist (forgot his name) attracted to the info girl? He was blushing...

...okay my mind has changed after 2 episodes this has one place go and that's the road to " i have seen this for 6 years now from jc staff". Really I mean really?? is anyone not even trying anymore? I get the fact that's based on a light novel but what the fu** why do such cheap pandering. Okay with that out the way, it's meh, I have a thing for guns so i can still give it a go but come on j.c.staff I know your capable of doing good animation, "index/railgun, zero no tuskima and shana" but this looks so damn bland... if not for the loli tsundere I would just drop it but well i have my own thing. Perhaps the story wil pick up and make up for the other faults that have been presented so far.

I can see why you might find it bland as it doesn't have any really great characters or a good setting. The plot has been a bit dry so far but it did start to pick up and the end of episode 3. At least a good part in the story is coming up in the next episode or 2.

Minor spoilers for episode 3.

well right now.... i would say that this anime is worth watching..... donno about the future.... (i personally don't like to watch Harem..... but im not sure if it's like that or not....)

pretty like the action on it.... and the plot is a bit compicated.... but somehow i understand it ..... hope that as this anime goes on it won't let me down....

don't really like Shirayuki... got a feeling that she would get on my nerves.....

just noticed that the main roles that Rie Kugimiya voiced always calls a name that end with 'ji'....
Todadora - Ryuuji
Shana - Yuji
now Aria - Kinji.....

sorry just thought that it's quite interressting....

Hated this episode.

What's with the boring drama at the end? And man the protagonist is so (I don't wanna say it, but) LAME. I'm sure he has reasons for not fighting but COME ON. Also, Aria's NONSTOP whining is getting on my nerves. I had high hopes for this anime and it's starting to get a little disappointing.

I hope it's just episode 2 & 3 that sucked.

Please get better.

tl note: baka mean idiot

In other news, this episode was a bit better than 2. I can't say much about this ep since I thought it was ok. I already spoiled it by reading the ln because jc staff might screw it up.
