KyoAni's visuals are gorgeous as usual, and I'm intrigued by the premise, so I've already added it to my "to watch" list

Artwise looks good, story-wise depends which way its taken/how its done, and I'm getting the impression its going to be a harem which not as excited about then again its KyoAni so maybe not. Red-haired girl kinda makes me think a bit of a short haired Makise Kurisu.

As typical with CR these days, no countdown timer for the first episode, but it's now up, and on time.

Episode 1


The opening theme song sure is great. Haruhiko sure makes a great artist. while Mai is quite the fighter there, Her personality is just like Sento's from another KyoAni show. Then there's Izumi who eats phantoms for lunch This world sure is full of illusions seeing that what is supposed to be a shrine is made to look like a graveyard and that limbo scene there is pretty funny. The artwork is gorgeous just like with a typical KyoAni show. So far, it's off to a solid start, but I will see how things go from hereon out.

Episode 1

Haven't read the LN before so I came into this completely fresh.

From what I got, the Phantoms are actually real (originally thought this was some chunnibyou type of show). And anyways, the comedy is pretty generic although funny in a way. The OP song is catchy and we see how Mai fights those Phantoms. I want to know more about that headphone girl though. She seems like the quite and cold type so yeah.

Courtesy of Kyoto Animation, the artwork is pretty good. I'll stick around for more.

Episode 1

Man, Rei can eat! Also, you gotta love limbo and jiggle physics! XD

I'm liking the premise of this so far. I mean, being a lover of the supernatural genre, how could I not like this? By the way, why does Mai look like Chitoge from Nisekoi? I got those vibes from her character design. The fan service was on a totally different level with those jiggle physics; holy-shit, lol. Oh, and the art is definitely sexy as well!

I'm liking what KyoAni is doing, so I am looking forward to more.

Wooo, first show of the season for me, and it looks decent, as expected.

I don't get why Kirby-chan can't just eat them all straight away - perhaps Nibutani's magical incantation scenes distracted me from why.
Speaking of her, that Limbo scene was hilarious . The fanservice in this show - when there's a will there's a way.

First impressions seem all right, and I do look forward to Maki-chan.

This is as close to a KyoAni fanservice show for males as we'll probably get. Let's treasure it

That exposition scene was pretty cringeworthy though. "Yeah, we both know about this already, but I just need to explain the plot really quick."

It's a good start. Good music, interesting world and I like our first three (three and half) main characters. Background info dump was a little clunky but it's an interesting premise.

Always did wonder what my cat is looking at when it stares at nothing.

My main question right now is

Is it Ichijo's Harem or Mai's

Episode 1

Mai fanservice as expected...meh whatever (atleast it give me something good to look at while watching this).

Reina good at sucking things up

Can't wait for doujins ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)

Dat limbo scene,dem bouncing tits ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)

Okayish episode,didn't have high expectations for this so wasn't disappointed.

Only annoying aspect this show has so far is Ruru.

Lots of fan-service in this one. Somewhat tasteful. I guess. Though that err.. Martial arts.. ahem Otherwise. An alright episode. Visuals are good obviously. But nothing that really stands out in terms of story or character really. So far anyways.

So got a bookworm with a bit of a scatterbrain, busty martial arts fighter and the cute black hole girl. All fighting to earn stuff. We'll see wher e this goes.

Episode 1: Age of Phantoms

You know I am a bit underwhelmed. But then again it's the first episode. It was an alright episode, things were still being introduced. The characters aren't that interesting besides their designs but more will come into fruition as the time goes on.

However, I will say that the visuals are gorgeous, but what can you expect from a KyoAni show? I expect some great fights (or some great sucking ) in the near future.

The premise seems cool, all they need to really do in introduce a conflict unless we are going a SoL route with phantom a week type of episodes, with the occasional fan service here and there.

I wasn't blown away as I thought I'd be but I am still going to check it out in hoping that it becomes something great. But so far, pretty average.


Oh Mai ♥

Ep. 1

Gotta say I actually enjoyed it and the upbeated-ness of it. Also seems all the females are capable and strong in their specialties while the male MC is of the intelligent but not physically strong type (which I like). Really like how its going into the idea of objects having/developing souls of a sort. I can't help but see a bit of Chidori (Full Metal Panic) in Ruru and Sento (Amagi Brilliant Park) in Mai, but since I love both those series its a good thing. And definitely think Koito is going to be my fav character, though fav of the episode goes to those adorable Limbo loving utility pole spirits xD

Only thing I could do with less of were the fanservice elements, especially the panning to Mai's chest.

From what I understand, although the way she does it is a bit fanservicy, Mai martial arts is legitimately based in elemental mysticism. Different internal organs favor different elements

If I remember it correctly

Yin side it's Water = Kidney, Metal = Lungs, Wood = Liver, Fire = Heart, Earth = Spleen.
Yang side it's Water = Bladder, Metal = Large Intestines, Wood = Gallbladder Fire = Small intestine Earth = Stomach

Illnesses were often regarded as elemental imbalances in their respective organs, either too much or too little.

So if she needs to draw Fire Chi she will massage her heart. Earth chi will come from her Spleen.

Curious if she has access to both Yin and Yang aspects. Traditionally I think women only get Yin and Men only get Yang.

Interesting though I would have to say that she massages her breasts instead of what is behind them (lungs), so definitely a more fanservice-y version of the martial art for sure. It'll be interesting to see if the other elements line up with this though
