for the first episode, this were rather disappointing. If i wanted to i could re-edit the episode so it would be way better.

And for those that don't know, this story was originated as a J.Novel. Many manga publisher took notice it and created their own version of the story.

Then into anime like most anime have done.

Political, environmental, war, murder, greed, religion, economics, ethics, ignorance and hatred. This anime references just about every real life issue of the 21st century. All in one episode! I never thought I'd see the day.

second the 'addiction' motion. Best start I've seen to an anime in a long while. I see the spice and wolf comparisons but it's also fresh. No way near a spice and wolf reprise.

and then i took a one -two punch to the funny bone...

"Just pretend you never saw that"... "I... I'll try."

Poip! "Those come OFF!!??"



Hey! Where did you find my notes on what I was going to say! :)

This is going to be a fun show to watch.

Reading way to much into it. It's relavant but not that specific. (also Bush has been out of power for over four years. and you don't have to be a gay hippie to dislike the war in Iraq)

You can say similar things about the period between WW1 & WW2. The economic forces described apply to all sorts of nations, not just the US.

And if anyone wants to watch another funny take on the same theme, watch the movie "Canadian Bacon".

It was a good begin of the serie. I'll definitely watch it until the end.

I definitely loved this first episode, mainly because I enjoyed the explanation of the economics and shady deals behind the war. It's nice to see it is not a cookie cutter, clean cut, good vs. evil war. My only problem is that I am so exhausted with characters like Hero who are overly embarrassed / shocked / shy...when they are met with a "mildly" sexually suggestive situation.

Compared to the manga they put a little less effort into the economic reasoning, but the scene change and overall composition in the first anime episode was imho better than in the manga. The artwork was undeniable more generic than in the manga. In the manga Maou has a more sexy touch (in the straight sense) whereas the anime heads over to moe (I won't complain, just a statement).

A good start. I hope this will continue / improve.

Agreed, most guys would be more than willing to help check her for more birthmarks...
