mmm just saw episode 1.

This is my assessment
:

Animation is so colorful and bright, I always liked the character design but they took some shortcuts for other peeps and stuff . Anyway these characters are basically technical school studen
ts.

Very over the top . I mean very. .

They introduced this one already in the middle of the story since the club is already formed with characters involved and with a goal of making that glasses in mind . i wonder what they will do next... go backwards and introduce each characters and their glasses and fettish ?

Sometimes this style of story telling works and sometimes it doesnt .So to me, It felt awkward. It doesnt feel like a slice of life type either.


To tell the truth, I actually got bored...everything felt shallow ...It got some funny moments but I wasnt giggling, more like smirking .Lots of slap stick comedy .

Dont get me wrong, I love comedy like Gintama, Daily Lives of HS Boys and Ixion Saga DT,Hataraku Maou Sama , I just wasnt laughing at their humor, the comedic writing and timing is just not there. I skipped thru the episode about 5 times before ending it.


I guess you can say I am disappointed with the writting.


I believe this one is an original animation title ?

But I do hope it gets better.... in the next episode or so.

i will watch it again when I am not expecting much from it.

The best part of this episode was actualy the first few minutes until the Gundam Xray glasses exploded .

^It's an anime adaptation of an audio drama series, so I guess it qualifies as an 'original' animation title?

That was... ALOT better than what I was actually expecting. Wow.

The animation may not have been the greatest, but it was still pretty good. I love the characters so far, they're all so goofy and just a lot of fun. I really enjoyed the brothers as well. I love sibling relationships that are actually like siblings and not the creepy incest pandering I've seen in multiple things.

This episode had me laughing quite a bit, with Takuma and his sweets also Yukiya with his random stripping. I laughed at how the boys interacted with eachother as well, no one seems to love poor little Hayato. :(

Just as I thought too, I love the style. I can tell who directed this without a doubt. Thank the lord for Yamamato Soubi, seriously. The colors are very bright, and the backgrounds are interesting to see. When Akira was talking at certain parts I loved seeing the little glasses or circles go around behind him.

It's not the best thing I've seen, but I can see myself really enjoying this if it keeps it up.


Anyway, first episode was good to me.

The show is really colorful, and it is kind of random. Lol at the singing chord.

Too bad, the men's dream had been shattered.

BORING to me. The writing is terrible and the only some of the scenes/dialogues are appealing to me. The artwork is definitely the strong point of this series though but I am likely to drop this soon.

This is my favorite scene from episode 1:

Well.....I'm not quite sure what to make of this series after one episode. It was really over-the-top, that's for sure. I wasn't expecting that random stripping, haha. Anyways, I'm not expecting anything serious from this show, but it should be fun nonetheless.

Akira just might be insane, lol.

Episode 1| 4/5

It was a good episode. Soma is definitely my fave!
I am pretty much going to watch this show for him and and for him only.
The others can go.

Also, I did NOT expect the cutesy-wonderful animation.
I think it suits it though.

Episode 1 Impressions:

Man this episode was over the top lol ^^". Everything the boys did was crazy and exaggerated, which isn't necessarily a bad thing. I found all the characters enjoyable, though I only like a couple of the characters designs, the others didn't look good at all ^^"

The animation and style was definitely the highlight of the episode and it's pretty unusual and unique in its own way. The music, however, was very good and I like the OP and ED (especially the ED) very much. The OST was more funny than good X3.

I do admit that this show's writing isn't good at all, but I enjoyed it nonetheless. I feel like I will enjoy this one even though it is very strange and weird, but it's a good king of weird if you know what I mean :).

I also have to point out that the comedy is top notch....well at least to me. I didn't go even two minutes without laughing at something the characters did or said. I expect the comedy to keep continuing throughout each episode in this way.

Overall, I highly enjoyed this episode, but I wouldn't say this show is for everyone ^^"

Maybe because I like the idea of "x-ray glasses" and I was like "Hell yeah where do I sign up for this club", because I'm the little pervert I know I am. But when I finish watching it I was like ."what the hell was the point of this?". I give it one more episode to see If their any story behind it or if they going to goof around the whole serious. Also, they are pretty good looking dudes and they was building glasses to see girls naked,

Oh, I agree. I really enjoyed the visual style of the first episode, and the ED's pretty inventive, but, otherwise, there's a lot of really odd stuff in here. (Domino-headed purple silhouette people?) I thought this might be another Free!, but it's ... a completely different animal, heh. It's just weird.

As a glasses-wearer, I feel obliged to give it another shot, but, if Episode 2 doesn't really fire me up in some way, I'll probably drop this.

I LOVED the ending, especially the song!!! I could listen to that over and over again :D

The visuals were odd, but I feel that's just the appeal of the episode and that comedy!!! I dunno if it's just me, but the comedy had me laughing constantly without a break, especially with Yukiya Minabe (black-haired one) taking his shoes and shirt off so he can run faster X3

I know exactly what you mean about Free! I thought it was going to be like Free!, but with guys with glasses but I was surprised beyond words! I was caught off guard by what it was actually like ^^"

Quite a few people expected Free! and I'm not sure why. I mean, bishounen characters yeah, but one is a sports themed slice of life while this is just a complete slice of life. (So it seems.) This first episode reminded me of a Daily Lives of Highschool Boys type anime.

Anyway, the animation is a bit weird, but I have to say that's just how the director's work seems to be. I feel she has a love it or hate it type of style.

Some of her other stuff:

As you can see it's very bright and very unique as well. Really weird as you put it, but I really enjoy it for some reason.

Either way, I can see it's not really for everyone. Not everyone seems to enjoy the humor and slice of life is definitely not a thing for everyone either. I can assure you it will not be like Free! since that was a sports themed slice of life.

Different than I had expected.

Looks like it's mostly going to be "Guys doing Silly Stuff" usually ending with explosions.


Gonna be a light chuckle kind of show I think
