Ep 1

Every thing reminds me of Attack on Titan way too much.

The chorus lines in the OP.
Giant creatures out to destroy humanity.
Erecting giant pillars to use as barriers to keep them out.
The fate of the world depends on people who are infected with Gastrea (aka the enemy).
Ren is voiced by Eren Yeager.

...and I'm not complaining because I like this even more than AoT so far.

Enju alone makes it great in my eyes.



By the way, why is Hanekawa voicing Nadeko? lol


I'm totally feeling an Attack on Titan vibe from this as well, which in my book, is a great thing.

This was a good first episode and I'm really looking forward to more. The voice actors alone have me excited:

- Enju is played by Rina Hidaka (Silica from SAO, Nagisa from Strike the Blood)
- Rentaro is played by Yuki Kaji (Eren from AoT, Alibaba from Magi, Shu from Guilty Crown)
- Kisara is played by Yui Horie (Koko from Golden Time. Minori from Toradora)
- And I think the Masked Man is played by Rikiya Koyama (Kiritsugu from Fate/Zero, Yamato from Naruto)

Also Enju is awesome!


Going in for the sneak kiss!! I like it! XD

I really enjoyed the first episode. It had great animation, the Gastrea look mighty good and the fight scenes were superb. :)

The only thing that was bothering me a bit was the pacing, since I read the manga before watching the anime. While it took the manga four chapters to cover this much of the LN, it only took one episode for the anime. I don't see that as a bad or good thing, but it's just that with the pacing we're given explaining things to the viewers seems a little difficult.

The voice actors were great! No issues from this end. I really hope this is a 2-cour anime. Thanks for getting it, Crunchy!

What in kamenamae did they eat in the lab? The remains of the monster that was brought in like the do in /ghost-slayers-ayashi ?





They didn't seem nearly as enthusiastic about it, though..

doesn't remind me much of AoT at all, aside from the premise. reminded me more of Unbreakable Machine Doll, especially the characters.

great first episode, really looking forward to more of this. and Enju is adorable awesome.

It was a good episode. The first half had some good action scenes and showed that the plot could be something amazing if done right. The 2nd half was a bit slow for me, but I still liked it. The characters are okay, but they need to grow on me since I wasn't too impressed with them. Animation was spot on. Loved how they did the textures and action with that style. I hope it can keep up and keep me watching:)

Those are my exact thoughts.

Another thing about the OP that gives me AoT vibes is the font used for the credits, that off-white with blood stains on it is another thing that gives me AoT vibes. OH! And we can't forget that the giant man killing monsters can only be destroyed by either: a) like you mentioned, someone with the same biology as them(the Cursed Children have the Gastrea virus in them vs. the Titanshifters from AoT), or b) a very specific weapon(the swords in AoT vs. the bullets made from the same material as the pillars that keep them at bay).

Add onto the fact that it is also a Spring series like AoT, and well....it is kinda obvious this is trying to be this year's AoT. Only time will tell if it does grow into that. I do fully expect us to have yet another mega popular franchise to pop up this year, it happens every year. Wouldn't mind if this was that one.

Episode 1
Gastrea=Hideous CG Monsters.

OP sounds like Shingeki abit.The premise is pretty similar too.

Yuki Kaji's voice for the MC is kinda annoying.

Perverted loli fiancee (that won't amount to anything).She's rather annoying too but cute/sexy<3.

Cursed Children=Lolis are humanity's last hope.

Glad I wasn't expecting much from this.

That was a pretty nice first episode. It's already pretty popular here on CR from the looks of it. The pacing was a bit fast for my liking at first, but I liked the episode enough to want to re-watch it soon.
