I have to say, this series is pretty good I can say that I haven't seen a series like this before. So, I'm looking forward to the coming weeks ahead.

On a side note, I really love Kirihime Natsuno's CV: Marina Inoue. To me, she was prefect for the role in my opinion.

I admire the protagonist, too, but apparently that word doesn't mean what you think it means...At least she doesn't think so.

I don't really get it, so I guess I'll watch a few more episodes before I decide. Plus, since it comes out on Monday, and I don't have anything else to watch, I'll end up watching the whole thing.

Very curious about the direction of this and what exactly the story will be.

Episode 1:

Right now I'm getting Dusk Maiden of Amnesia, Kore Wa Zombie Desu Ka, Senjougahara's personality from Bakemonogatari, and The Severing Crime Edge vibes all from the first episode (and probably a few other shows)

Holy cow, this could end up fantastic.

It's a good start. Our book loving hero is clearly in the Angel of Redemption role here to save the girl.

She clearly doesn't want to let on but she feels some guilt over his death. I have to wonder if she snapped out of her Writer's Trance when the gun went off or if it kept going until a police officer came by and tapped her on the shoulder.

You didn't even notice someone died saving your life not 2 feet away from you. What does that say about you as a person?

So Fate steps in, Boy saved her life, now he has to save her soul.

This is going to be interesting I think
at least I hope it will be, gonna suck if all that potential gets buried under cliches

This is the only qualm I had with the first episode, as well. Otherwise, I absolutely loved it! I am an English major so I share similar interests, which means I sympathize with main character REALLY well. I also admire Shinobu because I admire authors. The doggy expressions were great and had me laughing the whole episode. I REALLY cant wait for more. This could be a top 10 anime for me.

Is this some type of twist on the romance genre?

animation is pretty good, the "scissor kill" thing and flat boobs jokes got kind of boring after a while.
I really enjoy how he loves books so much since I can really relate, hmmm but honestly the first episode was a bit boring.

Pretty big meh for me; I'll check the thread again next week to see what people have to say about the next episode though. I should've checked the studio; I was expecting Shaft; Gonzo elicits much lower expectations on my part.

I'm going to join in on the resounding "meh"...unfortunately but I'll give it a few episodes.

I didn't even come close to laughing. I'll give it another go but I'm pretty sure I'll be dropping this.
