For people who haven't seen this show, I felt the main character was unusual for female Shoujo characters.

She reminds me a bit of Tsukushi Makino in her better moments, who was a really badass shoujo protagonist by the way in the manga boys over flowers.

She also has a somewhat shounenish feel to her and others things as well. This was definitely the best episodes one I've seen so far of any series this season and have heard the manga is amazing, so I will read it eventually.

I recommend this to everyone as this season's darkhorse.

Surprisingly enough it gave me a Magi/FT feel to it when I watched it, so I recommend it to fans of those franchises!!!

Yay, anime finally realized one cannot spell "waifu" by spelling it with "waif."

It's odd, but language is oft counter-intuitive like dat!

Nike is fave female protag of the season so far.

When I hear the name Nike, I can't help but think about Greek Mythology.

I hope those two thieves return as side characters, loved their banter. Nike is a fantastic character and I loved her design.


Stealing my thoughts?

Well... looks like I'm the only one who didn't fall in love with this immediately?

It could certainly get better, but that first episode was very bland and by-the-book. Felt like half infodump, half generic Disney-eque plot, with plain and stereotypical characters. I don't know what to think of the protagonist, because she was mostly tossed from place to place for the sake of plot and worldbuilding, and switches between comically naive and confidently intelligent whenever the situation or gag demands it.

I'll have to decide whether to continue this after the second episode. This seemed more like a preview than a pilot.

Well someone said this opening episode was mostly not in the manga, anime only. So maybe they choose the wrong way to open.

The second episode should, hopefully, follow the manga more and will be a truer view of the story,

I like the generic Disney-esque plot. I usually do. So seeing this happen in an anime was rather nice.

I think they did well to chose the beginning as it is.
.. Read the manga for more details. I really think it's good this way. Don't worry too much.

I was more telling the person to give it a chance, since they disliked the first episode. I was just wanting to give a reason on why that may be.

I liked the first episode myself

:) GOOD. It's too early for any decisions to be made. I think.

ANOTHER STUDIO PEIRROT ADAPTATION?

They spoiledxmewith Kingdom, and now this? Surely I did not deserve such!

Episode one was rife with 4th wall breaks and good fun character introductions. I'm looking forward to following this.

Ha, Nike is really cool. Will she be my spring front runner for top female like last season's Hiyori? Maybe, still too early to tell.
