Synopsis



First Impressions

Not bad for the first episode.

I was a little confused though but I can see that Arata is a kind person. The setting shifts between high school life and a more historical era. Uh, there was violence and blood being spilled so I expect more violence and conflict later on. Well, the episode was alright I guess; wasn't earth shattering or anything imo.

well i'm glad first and foremost it is not a gender bender and only used to set the story up

I am not glad that both worlds are still being portrayed. i have not read the manga, but i saw the preview and it did show communicado between the two. the biggest downfall is telling both stories for a 12 ep anime (i'm being honest this won't get past 13) i suggest thy stick with the tribal world and just complete that side.

Hehe, I'm glad I wasn't expecting a lot out of this. I love it when I just watch something on a whim, and it turns out to be really awesome. Much better than that Mushibugyo show that I'll choose to arbitrarily compare it to.

Pretty good adaptation so far. I see that they cut down quite a bit of (Japanese) Arata's introduction as well as some of the goofiness and jokes from the chapters that this episode covered, which I think works to this show's benefit.

For those that have read around 50 chapters into the source material:

I tried the first volume or so of the manga. I didn't quite get into the momentum of it though. But the basics of the plot looked interesting, and I think I'll be able to stick with the anime.

It seemed interesting, but it didn't amaze me. Maybe it might get better as more episodes air.

Please could you check out my first impressions of this anime. I tried quite hard to make this video, thanks! :)

Another effective and short review! Keep it up. My first impression is similar. (I comment here instead of on youtube because I don't have, and don't want, an account there).

This is from the author of Fushigi Yuugi and Absolute Boyfriend among many others. It was quite an interesting pilot episode. I'm just worried that this is slated for one cour. I haven't read the manga but I've heard it can cover more than a cour's worth. The problem with this is that it'll most likely get an anime-original ending, if not it'll stop mid-way into the story. I think there are facets in the story worth delving in more, it would be such a waste if they have to cram or skip out on those parts.

It does seem very Fushigi Yuugi now that you point that out. I sincerely hope it doesn't go full Fushigi on us. Otherwise the protagonist and his rival are going to get really face punch worthy soon >.>
