Overall I thought it was a solid first episode. The two leads had good chemistry and the show had some very funny moments. Not sure how it will develop, but hopefully the creators will manage to keep things fresh for 22 episodes.

Great first episode. I was thinking that it was incredibly silly...until i saw the end. The speech he gave was really genuine and pretty inspiring. Can't wait to see more.

I thought it was very funny and amusing.

Love to hear Sugita san in it and the other seiyuu Toshiki Masuda , who hasnt done a lot of roles in the past sounded very suprisingly similar to Sakurai .

I am glad CR will be streaming this.

Kick-Ass In Japan feels like the right way to describe this. I enjoyed the premiere, and the two leads do have good chemistry. (Sugita is one of the great VAs, so no surprise there.) But what did it for me is the very tongue-in-cheek joke that is Harakiri Sunshine. As soon as I saw that (and laughed my ass off), I knew I would be back for more.

OK first episode, was fun and funny but not a top pick of the season for me so far. Will keep watching I think.

I couldn't get into this at all. It seems like it's an anime version of Kick-Ass without being kick ass.
Dropped.

In Japan it becomes Ass-Kicked.

I'm not going so far as to drop it yet, the introduction of the other characters could actually brings tools to "hero"s disposal. But right now I'm not too confident about that.

Yeah, I know I'm being a bit over-critical, but right now I have too many shows to watch so I have to pare down my list somehow. I don't mean to say the show's bad, only that it really didn't catch my interest.

I'll give it 3 episodes to see what happens, but all I thought after the first one was: "MC is a total derp."

So, eh...I like the animation style, though. For some reason the whole thing reminds me of Cowboy Bebop.

Oh, and I liked this a lot:

Don't get me wrong I agree and I should whittle down my list too. I wasn't impressed at all by the 1st ep but I'm trying to give everything a chance. I'll probably come back to this show after 5 or 6 eps have been released. That way I can marathon a few and decide if I'll stick it out.

Isn't Samurai Flamenco really a subversion of what Kick-Ass was trying to do?

In Kick-Ass, the main character becomes the ultimate normal-guy hero, but he also becomes a very teenager-y hero, while fighting off evil forces of course. And Kick-Ass 2 only takes that further. But Samurai Flamenco is kind of saying, "Teenagers are a nuisance. They would be much better off being obedient, responsible, contributing members of society!" While trying to fight off evil forces...

That's pretty much the MC's ill-defined idea of "evil" that he's currently fighting against. I'm interested in where the show will go, and what the bad guys are going to represent later on. I don't think it will end up being like Kick-Ass at all in the end.

It is, but I think they could have presented that better. Instead, all I could think is the MC is too stupid to live.

This could be a show that gets much better as the other characters are introduced. It's certainly the same path Kick-Ass took: the MC inspires others to take up the hero mantle. And maybe he'll become a great leader. *shrug* Who knows? I'll probably monitor the thread to see if the show improves. If it does, I might pick it back up in the future.

I think the episode got better as it went along - I agree it deserves more than one episode before we can judge it. I am interested to see where this show is going, and will definitely watch the next few.
