From the 13 or so new shows so far, this one is by far my favourite, as far as debuts go.

i just had the best 20 24 minutes (because dammit the ED and preview were hilarious as well) of emotional whiplash i can recall in recent memory

there were laughs, gut punches, laughs, tears of sadness, laughs, tears of joy, oh and did i forget pain in your stomach, can't breathe laughs???

great start to a series

My favorite of the debut episodes so far. Could this be this season's Barakamon?

Kohina is great so far.

This anime is essentially an alternate universe version of Barakamon where Handa is a god and Naru is....well, she's still a complete troll. I can already tell this is going to be one of the best anime this season.

This genuinely surprised me. I was kind of "eh" after reading the description, but gave it a shot anyway.

And I'm so glad I did, it was hilarious.

Excellent. A lot of the shows I want to watch tends to be limited to USA (and Canada) only, so it's nice when this happens.

Gotta give props to a new property having the balls to have a Bad End on Ep. 1.

Best OVA in a while.

I rewatched the first ep and I think I know how I feel about this show. It's like Barakamon meets Hoozuki no Reitetsu. I absolutely loved both of those shows, so I'm really excited to continue this one.

Totally agree.

I enjoyed the first episode quite a lot. I liked the art with Kohina being a doll most of the time but also being a girl when required. I'm not sure how old she's supposed to be though, she seems to be quite young (I guess she could maybe be as old as 12ish but seems to be younger). It seems odd that she's living on her own (I guess an escaped bio-tech experiment wouldn't have parents), although it's hardly uncommon in anime.

A lot of the episode seemed quiet, it was interesting to have the comedy stand a little more on it's own without having as many musical cues as usual (although maybe I was just being imperceptive, there was definitely music some of the time). It did feel oddly paced at times as well, although it didn't take long to get used to and worked well enough for me.

I did like the way the emotional and comedy aspects worked together, although I'm not sure the emotion was as strong as it could have been if I had been given more reason to doubt (that's probably just a personal thing though).

I'm looking forward to seeing more, I think there's a good chance I'll enjoy the whole show (though I'll have to be careful when I watch it so that it doesn't catch me at a bad time with an emotional moment).

I love it!

Kohina and Kokkuri-san seem to have a really nice dynamic going on so early in the show, and from the looks of it we'll probably get introduced to a few other hilarious characters in the coming weeks. This will almost certainly be one of my favorites of the season.

I feel like this show is another addition to a streak of fantastic comedies we've been getting lately. I knew I would like this, but I didn't expect to laugh out loud as much as I did.

I wonder if this show is also going to have some more serious elements though. I mean, jeez, that one scene towards the end almost made me tear up. They could certainly go that route if they wanted to.

Anyway, i'm greatly looking forward to more of this!

Episode 2

Wow, and smiling takes a whole new level in this show...

That Inugami guy looks awfully familiar as well...but I wasn't expecting a gun like duel this episode. The fox was cute. It reminds me a bit of Inari, Konkon, Koi Iroha. And based on this episode, this little rivalry is going to be quite an amusing tale to tell.

Ep 2

This show...



So far one of my favorite shows of this season. Between all the laughs, there is just the slightest hint of a melancholic feel behind Kohina's "doll" exterior. She has her insecurities even though she denies it or goes off and acts all nonchalant. The whole deal with the smile and her not wanting Kokkuri to dislike her, right in the feels.

Inugami is a great add to the cast. And the fact that its basically two characters in one is even better. Can't wait for the third member to join in haunting her. What was it, a drunk tanooki?

This show is totally deranged, I love it. Definitely the Barakamon of the autumn season.

I can't wait to see how those two are going to react to the Bakeneko character we've been seeing in the opening. If they had a complete breakdown with a regular cat how do they handle one that can match them on their own terms.

Not as good as Ep. 1, but Yuri route FTW.
