First Impressions

Just finished watching and was a good episode.


Anyways, I'm a fan of PA Works and I enjoy their stuff so this was a delight for me. The animation fits I think and OP/ED songs were nice. The setting is Kyoto so it gives off a sort of natural way of Japan's setting. Anyways, I'll look forward to more but decent first episode!

This was wonderful!! I always loved the theme of supernatural beings living along side normal people. <3 Benten was hot, and I could listen to her VA all day.

I thought she sounded familiar! It's Mamiko Noto... I remembered her voice from the Hell Girl songs, and for being Enma Ai.

I was a bit worried after Red Data Girl but the story is already interesting and so are the characters here.

The character designs are unique and, I'll admit, a bit weird. Not sure this is something I could buy at this point but the are not enough to put me off from watching it.

Backgrounds are beautiful.

Seems interesting. Not what I was expecting but I will keep watching for sure.

I thought it was a solid first episode; actually, one of the best first episodes I've seen this season. It didn't over-explain or be deliberately obtuse, something which I've noticed a lot of this season. The main character is likable, but still has that tanuki quality of mischief to him. And I definitely am interested in how Benten fits into all this.

I actually hadn't read anything about this show prior to watching, so I expected a family sit-com type of show, though, considering it is a P.A. Works show, I should have known better. Liked the OP, mostly because I like milktub, and their pop-punk sound seems to work well for the show.

After reading a bit more, I also discovered it was based on a novel, which means it should have an actual ending, something I find encouraging. Overall, I liked it a lot more than I expected.

You can't bet on that! Was it just one novel? Red Data Girl anime only did 5/6 novels... leaving us hanging a bit hoping for a movie or some OVAs. I have all the books but for most people that doesn't really help.

Looking forward to this, although I still have no idea how to gauge the potential for this one. We'll see, I suppose.

Is there a legal stream for this hanging around somewhere I'm being completely oblivious to?

I'm not sure how I missed that.

I had to drop this. It might be because I'm currently sleep deprived, but I didn't get a good sense. I'll try to pick up the series again when the Summer 2013 Simulcast ends. To everyone that's enjoyed the episode, happy watching!

Awesome first episode. The characters are interesting. Noto Mamiko's soothing voice is always refreshing among the screeching female voices in most anime. I noticed all of the characters including the humans have weird looking ears lol (not that it matters though). OP and ED songs are great. That synopsis sounds intriguing, looking forward to seeing more.

Eeh... not sure what I think about this. None of the hooks were baited for me. I'll give it another episode though.
