You said it crimsoncoder! Regardless of his tendency to reuse plot devices, rely on standard tropes, and have characters that are similar across series, Seo-sensei is a master at eliciting emotion with his stories and with his art. His characters feelings are well known to the reader long before they ever voice them aloud and sometimes before he allows them to acknowledge them in their own thoughts. Facial expression; posture; the tilt of the neck; the slant of the eye; clasped hands; a fist tightening its grip; a tear forming that never falls; all of these weapons and more he brings to make the characters emotions come to life visually. So far, the anime is doing an OK job.


I hope they continue doing a good job with the story and that it gets enough episodes to do it justice.

OK...i have finally seen episode 1 for this anime. Before this anime was close to airing, i was looking forward to seeing this since it looked interesting and later on i realized it is actually a popular manga. I have also noticed these past few days that the manga was highly debated on with many mixed reviews. I have absolutely no idea how this anime will turn out but it seems to be something big so we shall see. Well anyway episode 1 was pretty decent and i like the main character's personality (for now) also am looking forward to the following episodes. Half the time i was watching i kept thinking that this looks like Casshern Sins lmao

He is pretty stupid, lol. Even in the manga, he still seems like an idiot to me.

I kind of like the way the director is taking this. Start with the relatively incomprehensible "Haruto moves to Tokyo to chase after the girl that dumped him" story, then go back and show how Yuzuki's personality, and her tendency to put other people's feelings ahead of her own, made him feel that he needed to do it. I expect the flashback scenes will concentrate on Yuzuki denying her own feelings for the sake of others. In this episode, it is clear that she has feelings for Haruto. She even mentioned having been to the town when she was younger, which is a major plot point later, but she is still trying to get Haruto together with the girl he's been crushing on all through middle school.

The character animation was a bit better in spots, but still sloppy in others. (The scene where Nanami finds Yuzuki passed out in the bath was strange and jerky...) I really liked the watercolor like backgrounds. It added to the feeling of this being memory...

Wait wait wait... JUST WATCHED EP 1....Didn't they, like, skip 85780572805720520547205202952752709 manga chapters?????? Or Am I supposed to have seen the OVAs? I know the EXTREME DRAMA is where they started since I'm up to date with the manga... but BEFORE there is A LOT of material to be covered... I've only seen EP 1 and the preview oif ep 2 goes back to the past but... do they plan to do a Berserk and work their way back to ep 1??? Hope they DO animate what happens before he goes to Tokyo... I mean... that's like the whole story.
I think the adaptation is outstanding, btw, I just feel they cannot skip the first part like that.

That's an understatement. He needs to learn to let people know he isn't single...he gives women false hope and drags them along...

alright he herp derped the chapter as always... he needs to wear a badge and say, "taken" or wear a ring.

I don't want to use the word forced but the manga could have ended at least 3 times already.
