All right. I'm there. *pulls up a chair* Dude did the basis of what is now my favorite romance-drama anime, I'll be more than happy to give him another shot.

As expected, Aniplex has it, and ironically, Saekano is announced shortly after Sentai announced Saikano. It's going to be hard to keep those two shows straight if I keep on referring to this show as Saekano.

Episode 0

And so, it all begins with an episode 0, and already it's fanservice time in the hot springs to start things off. And here, the process that goes into making a dating sim is played out with Megumi being the MC, Tomoya the creator, his cousin Michiru providing the music, Eriri doing the artwork, and Utaha doing the storywriting. They take a trip to a hot springs resort to take in the autumn scenery for some ideas. That was a pretty interesting start to this.

Is it just me or are a lot more shows going for the 10-11 episode route rather than the 12-13 episode route?

There are probably more shows in general compared to a few years ago. So there are bound to be more of one type. Believe me when I say, I am pulling this out of my ass.


Companies don't want to take the risk, and viewers have shorter attention span. Looking around the forums, a lot of people have been saying 13 eps is about the perfect amount. At one point I thought I was crazy suggesting only 26 eps for most series and 52 for those that really needed more time.

I will say that this was the funniest episode so far for Winter 2015.

Episode 0 (prequel)

Yeah, this is definitely the prequel/episode 0. I don't remember the manga having this much fan service in the beginning.


Treat the episode more as an example of a promotion for the main series that begins next week. They'll properly introduce the characters soon but damn, Utaha is hot.

Yes and there are also manga adaptations.

Btw, this is like an OVA. The main series will have less fan service.

I can't be too sure if I am really into this or being setup for a let down... Love the satire so I want that to stay, the start was an instant draw in, poking fun at fan service and the fans who promote it, the reason for the decline of anime quality, while showing that exact same format as their opening story, Nice!, and then takes a Jab and the over pretentious critics, Nice! But this is episode 0....so what does that mean? is ep 1 going to start at some different point? and I won't get anymore of this? I am ready to be invested if I can get this story in this direction, Harem style or not, it could work well.

Something slightly upsetting, the integrated CG.....when typing....why?

I noticed that too, looked really awkward.

Why doesn't every Anime start out with a hot springs scene, it would make everything much better

Oh heck yes, that was great, haven't seen such a funny self-aware Harem in quite a while. Really looking forward to this, the top runner for this seasons best Harem, for sure.

Ep 0 (oh, guess this wasn't the actual first episode)

Went in with no expectations. Left thinking this may be my fave show this season.

Gotcha! I don't mind the fan service, it just felt like a prologue, something I would read in a light novel. Thanks for the input, brotha'!
