First Impressions

Well, the first preview episode is only roughly 11 minutes but so far has potential. It adopts similar artwork and character designs from the series K-On! for those familiar with it. It has supernatural elements as described by the synopsis but overall, it seems just so-so far.

Some pictures:


Lol'd.

The character design is so close to K-On, at first glance, I thought the girl with the short pigtails (or ponytail? Can't tell) was Azusa.

It was a little slow at first but it grabbed my attention around the end. This could be pretty decent if they do it right.

So, is it only 11 minutes long or am I missing something?

That was just a pre-air promo kind of thing... The real first episode airs next week.

Anyway, I know nothing about this series, but watching the promos made it interesting enough to keep my eye on. Looks cute and fun. And one of the charas is named Aoki -- I have been going by this username for years so I feel like I'm gonna like him

Hopefully, this gets a simulcast of some kind. I think it has some potential and I'd like to see where they take it.

I have a feeling I may want to keep my eye on this title. Maybe I'll get lucky and catch a simulcast.

It appears this is being handled by King Records/Starchild, which CR has a relationship with, so I would say odds are better than average.

Episode 1




This is the real episode one, the extended version beyond the preview episode.

Dat body switch.
Dat drama.
Dat questions

Well, tbh I liked this episode overall and the ED is performed well. Body switch is serious business, people.

Episode one was pretty interesting to say the least. Also another main character with orange hair. I'm starting to notice a trend...

*takes on a weird accent and strokes imaginary beard throughtfully* Hmm... Veeeeerry interesting... And the humor was cute. Looks like this is one of the few good animes this season.

I'm not sure what to think about this one. I wonder if I can be interested long enough to find out what switching bodies will do for the theme of a show. I'll watch one or two more to be sure this is worth the watch. This is very strange, I have watched every anime that I've seen the first episode except for Dog Days S1 and this could be the second show I strike down this season the first being "So, I can't play H".

I don't regularly drop anime, so what is about this season that I may drop two, or more?
