Well I guess I will have to see how this plays out, sorry to say it, but this first episode really did not impress me in anyway, and as Stark700 said, the Yukina characteristics ( and same VA :/, and the argh the blushing, goes from dark to ditzy, really?) from STB are somewhat hurting this for me even more. Is it safe to ask, will this series get darker? I felt like I was watching a comedy with a lackluster dark tone for giggles, but then again just a first episode so I shouldn't judge.
That same VA was also Saki Watanabe in Shinsekai Yori, Yukari in Yuyushiki. She is actually quite versatile in my opinion so I wouldn't use Yukina against her though... I happen to like Yukina and STB so I may be biased LOL

But otherwise, I'm not sure yet either. It is mystery fantasy romance genre, that is for sure and they got all three in the first episode alright but I am not really sure what to think about it, where it might be going. She is magical but with metal thingies in her neck -- is that the one from the x-ray in the OP? Or is there one in her back/belly too? Magician or alien or ??? Same girl, different girl... lots of mysteries so if I end up caring about the characters at all then I'll have to watch all 13 episodes though that sounds rather rushed now.

Kuroha does act like that in the manga though so saying that she is suffering from Yukina characteristics is kind of wrong, it was a good match up in terms of seiyuu used though

But yes it gets darker. And there will still be humor dispersed throughout among all the grimness.


No, I didnt mean they copied Yukina towards her, Just I have the same vibes from it, So if I had seen this before STB I would have made the same comparison, FROM this first episode, obviously you have read the manga so you are seeing what I haven't seen yet, and hopefully when I do my opinion changes.

Well hope it fills my full on dark series void for this season.

Haha dammit Pulley, dont Try and make me like her now :P...Oh I thought he somewhat debunked the magical part towards the ending? and she was just a science experiment, and am assuming creating ESP powers? i.e powerful prediction skills, telekinesis and so forth....Oh my it will be 13 episodes as well? hopefully it is adapted well and doesn't create some pacing issues, I do like the premise that is a given.

Ah this was so good! I really wish they would translate the manga more. Seems like forever since I've read the manga. Good thing we have the anime to fall back on now! So gooood!

This is definitely going to be my favorite show. I just hope they don't go all original anime. I pray they won't, cause this has so much potential.

Episode 1
So this is going to go anime original cause
Wonder why they skipped the opening scene of the manga too.

Either way like the art and looking forward to see everything else being animated.Wonder if they'll go anime original ending too.

not quite anime original, white haired girl is in the manga.. just translations haven't gotten there yet. I think they are just cutting out a few of the girls to get to that point in the story.

Lets hope that they don't cut too much out...it would be very disappointing

~senpai!!!



At this point, I don't even know what they're going to show and what they're going to cut.

There is only one arc I want to see but from the OP, I think they might have cut it. I'm not 100% sure, I will probably have to go back and watch it again.

But if they do cut

I thought first episode was pretty good. I'm really interested to see where this one goes. And the opening is awesome! I'm glad they used some EDM for a change.

I would say she's artificially enhanced with telekinesis powers or something like that (maybe it's alien technology?). Also something tells me that she is indeed the same girl, but has lost her memories. Judging from the opening, something tells me all the "witches" died at some point and were brought back to life with the help of that unknown device on the back of their necks.

I looked it up and the manga seems to be chapter 55 so I don't know why they're cutting this one short. Probably because of budget. We may get a season 2 depending on how well this does though.

Ahh Alright, yes that would make alot more sense, Good now I even have higher hopes, amplifying magic with science is Always a plus!
Wow with that much material to work with surprised it isn't longer, was it not a top seller or something.

Guess we'll feel the Elfen Lied vibe in the next episode, loved the first episode though. Btw the opening was a nice change

hmm not gonna spoil but pretty close on your guesses.. and the untranslated chapters are up to chapter 96 atm so yeah there will be a lot of content cut if they are only going to make 13 episodes with no second season.

I couldn't tell ya, I tried looking up information on it but I couldn't find anything.

I bet the studio just has a low budget and can only afford 13 episodes for now. Also, while I was looking up the manga I saw that it had a "Tragedy" tag..... So I'm guessing things are going to get really crazy (also it's not everyday that you see something with a romance and tragedy tag haha).
