It's only the first episode, so I can't tell if it's like Summer Wars (loved that show btw), but there was a very slight Summer Wars vibe in it, now that I think about it.

As for the ears, I was like... I like their shape. xD But then again, I think girls with ears that stick out like that are cute.

Episode 1:

Has a really good ED song. Not sure about the show itself but I like the music in the show.

I like the vibe of the show so far and I dig the animation, but hmmm none of the characters interest me that much yet. But I shall keep on watching!

Interesting. Reminds me of Pom Poko from Studio Ghibli. Slightly disappointed on the animation style P.A Works went with.

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.


Well, it is a single book...and its been several years, so that's probably it. Its written by the same author of The Tatami Galaxy. Though you are right, there is no guarantee. Still, odds are pretty good, I would think.

I hope you're right! Red Data Girl's 6th novel came out in the fall I think so I thought it was out early enough for them to animate it but perhaps not or perhaps they were planning on a movie like Hanasaku Iroha and wanted to leave more material? I don't know. With just one book like Shinsekai Yori you would expect they will finish it within one season.

Solid episode. I'm quite curious how Benten turned out that way.

When I first heard about it, I've mistaken the anime for t Lucky Star spin off.

Then when I first see te picture, I thought the main character is a woman in her 20's.

Then I've warched it and found out that the main character is a guy.

Benten. A bad girl with a good heart. But what else do you expect from the goddess of arts and wisdom? :)

I enjoyed the first episode. We got some interesting characters and world building. The downside is we weren't given much of an idea where this is going.

I guess it will be... interesting?

I like it! Hard to not get a little distracted by the ears though. Agree about first episode kisses being a good thing. Especially when it's a kiss bestowed casually. None of that confession crap.

So.. for someone who has no background on this and not sure if I should watch it or not. Slice of life? Comedic? I mean is it like Polar Bear Cafe? Or Pompoko weird?

This is categorized as Comedy, Fantasy, which seems about right. The MC is a shape-shifting tanuki that likes to cross-dress. And he is stuck in the middle of some family drama.

I hope that helps.
