Okay, so I am still not sure if I got every detail about what is going on (I was kind of setting up my PS4 while watching the first part of the episode), which may or may not be intentional since this throws A LOT at you from the very start, but that was still by far the best first episode I have seen out of this season so far.
OST and art are great, world looks creative and interesting, story has got some decent potential and while the characters didn't stand out all that much so far, with our main character seeming kind of generic, I am willing to give it the benefit of the doubt as this episode did set up some potential conflict and I am actually interested in seeing these characters develop.

This gets a big thumbs up. Disappointing start to the season so far, but this is looking great, I expect a lot out of this title.

Just a regular day in NYC.

This looks like it's going to be Hamatora with less disappointments.

Has Funimation explained why they haven't uploaded it yet?

That was awesome. So many different weird fantasy creatures mixed in with humans. Nice fight scenes. Catchy music. Sufficient chaos.
Definitely lived up to my expectations so far.

Ep 1

Disclaimer*: This post is very fanboy, please ignore, it doesn't mean it is the second coming (of Christ, lol on Easter), but it just might be for me.




, HYPE | HYPE | HYPE; So Hyped \ Such Start \ Much Wow.





Could this be the next entry to enter my Top 10 of all time? Looks very likely (Hopefully), and I am sure as hell excited to find out. I don't want count my chickens before they hatch but, this, for me personally, with my weird tastes, could break out of the 5 star region (out of 5) that I haven't had for quite some time. So, I am sorry Kekkai Sensen, but be ready to feel the Wrath of my insanely high Expectations, I will either over praise it at the end unconditionally or bash it to smithereens for letting me down; It only means I really want to be attached to this show and give it all of my love. With this (or even this alone) along with Seraph, my Monster Based series(Vamps, Lycans, alien like humanoids? and everything mythical!) void quota is going to be filled for this year (and maybe the next, lol I kind of feel bad for the potential I am dumping into this show now. Come on top 5 / top10)

The animation is practically spotless, flawless and phenomenal, love love the designs, from the characters to the city landscape, very seinen styled and just my type, and nicely styled angles. That OST, that glorious swinging Jazzy ost! Flipping sizzling sweet, and I thought only Hibike would give me that fix this season. Its here and meshes to well with the action and overall Urban vibe. lol I was waiting for a Flapper dressed character to come in randomly at some point, its so good. Even when it is not jazzy it is still very rhythmic and wonderful. Speaking of Urban, I am really happy to see this placed in a city (New York site no less), it couldn't suit it any better. Its lively, robust, energetic and boy is it abnormally fantastic, MIB style, its all out in the open for your pleasure and entertainment =]. Also lets not forget the fight sequences, spectacular, doesn't even seem to do it justice. They were so clean, crisp, stylish, and just imaginative enough, not to enter the line of ridiculous and tacky, in a word, Perfect, for now. Delivered and received with style.





Then the cast, boy am I interested in them, and Leo couldn't be any more perfect as the Viewer's shadow MC, he seems simple, a coward, with a distraught past he feels at fault for (generic, I know) but you know there is just so much more to him, and he gets you excited to find out what it is, I know I am antsy to see what he is capable of later. Leo's normality, somewhat useful yet trivial (for now) sight ability and just general chill&weak demeanor fits well with the rest while complimenting them, Zap the over excited(& a little dim witted :p) within this spectrum, Chain the by the books and charming heroine (Yes! a female member taken seriously, and nice Suit), and Klaus the calm but strong beast (I am happy to see he is "German" =D). Libra just might be the real deal. Although I hope the show doesn't go full episodic before "achieving Leo's goal", as it could be much more than that, it could be very dynamic.

I hope that was the ED song, very noice.



In short: This was awesome , re-watched it 3 times before this post. I am going to look forward to Saturdays and Sundays this season...as usual...but with higher incentives this time. :p

2 things:
1.) Where in the hell is this on Funimation's site or are they being EXTREMELY lazy right now and decided to take their sweet ole time translating this?

2.) Why does Funimation have a queue for subscribers if said queue button doesn't work? I can see why people prefer CR, it's been over a year and a half since I last used Funimation and now i remember why I stopped...

WHY THE FUCK ISN'T THIS ON FUNI'S SITE YET!?!?!?!?!!??!

I refuse to watch it until Funimation puts it on. I'd only give them a pass if they were preparing a dub to be posted with the first episode, that's the only excuse I'll allow. If not, then this delay is bullshit.

Pffff you're such a debbie downer! The start to Spring has been fantastic, I haven't seen a season with so many good opening episodes in a long time.

Stop with your negativity!!!!
