Great first episode, animation was very good (I know a lot of people don't like the CG, but it honestly looks good), music was great (can't wait for that sick Konomi Suzuki OP next week). Much like her other songs, this one has some unique shape to it and I really enjoyed it.

So usually id be completely off put by the 3d and just say NOPE! And to a certain degree I was. Over all it seemed like your stereotypical "I am the chosen one and here are our random monsters and powers that will probably never be explained oh and don't for get the rag tag group of misfits who would stick out like a sore thumb at a halloween party" anime, but... there was something about the tone of it that really got to me that made me unable to stop watching. Also it was very fast paced. It sucked me into it world and didn't give me time to relax. Also I really liked the back ground music. And while I'm still not a fan of the cg there were some parts that were very well animated, or I guess I should say choreographed

I'll give it a couple more episodes.

I generally liked the concept behind the show, but the imagery of the show was just a little too...off for me. It just left me feeling uncomfortable.

I don't know. I don't usually have this problem with CG animated series, but something about this just really bothered me. It's kind of a shame, because I think I'd like the show otherwise, but I don't think I can handle watching something like that.

Episode 1

Man, i'm so late! I moved into my new apartment for my college university, so it's been one hell of a day!

The series and episode looks interesting; definitely a lot of potential there. The CG and Sci-fi elements are what caught me the most and the characters even seem interesting; they give off a...I believe a Kill la Kill type of vibe with how cool they look.

This is an original series, so i'm looking forward to more!

Bubuki Buranki EP 1 / "Witch's Son"

The OP is nice with the "mother " protecting a planet where Azuma Kazuki / Kogane Asabuki. This is confusing because they have diifferent last names ! Kogane tries to start a mech bt resukts in an invasion of Buranki and the mother is wek from fighting them . She send the duo and father to Japan where 10 Years he is pursuede by the police whon blame his mother for the Buranki problem because that how they returned to earth. But Kogane finds him and helpshim escape. Now the begiinning segment reminded me of Ronja because Kogane is quite similiar.
Then withe hand weapon it reminded me of FLCL in a way. This is as good as Erased ? Divine Gate

I enjoyed this a lot.

Main problem is that I'm stuck waiting with dread for the almost certain 'guilt lead me to a totally incomprehensible to those in the west betrayal' plot with the sister.

Maybe they'll surprise me ><

Initial Impressions!

I really, really enjoyed this episode. First, I was drawn into the initial setting on the floating island-like construct. In just that short segment I was already extremely curious about the Buranki and the nature of their mother's power and the creatures themselves. Then it transitioned to more of a dystopian post-apocalyptic setting, and I loved how they handled that as well. Of particular note to me are the character designs: the bizarre eye-wear and gas masks, the contrast between the colorful and stylistic clothing of the bubuki-users and the drab, monotone colors of the ordinary civilians and military, and even just the cool-looking nature of the powers themselves. Plus that ending scene and the interesting Buranki implications it brought up! It was all so cool.

Plus it was wrapped in a CGI art style that actually does it for me for once.

I do have some nitpicks with it though. Parts of the second half feel kind of rushed with character relationships kind of unexplained and forming spontaneously. And there were a few times where things just seemed to work out a little too conveniently.

But these are minor nitpicks. Overall, I adored this episode. Of the limited number of shows i've seen so far, this is the one i'm most looking forward to continuing next week.

The source of your confusion comes from thinking Kaoruko and Kagame are the same character. There completely characters with different personalities, Kaoruko is Azuma’s younger twin sister and Kagame is the hand Bubuki user.

I loved the 3D and the overall beautifully rendered backgrounds... not many shows captivated me with visuals like this one did.
It was definitely jarring and a lot of the backgrounds were so overdetailed they made the characters look flat and out of place, but I enjoyed that aspect, much more than the nonsensical story. I stopped counting the twists after they fell down the black hole for the last time and then ended up tumbling towards earth... by the end it looked like it was trying to be a teenage superhero anime vs mean grownups with way too many clichés. If that's what it's going to be then I'm not interested in that at all, but I'm watching several more episodes just to make sure

Episode 2

Everybody is backed into a corner, but just in time the buranki belonging to Azuma's mother awakens. And in comes Reoko, who is out to take out her anger for Azuma's mother on him, and her buranki Entei is in a different league. As it turns out, Azuma's mother has kept burankis from falling onto Earth, and that's why Reoko despises her so much. While the buranki is powerful, it requires five people to be united. So with that, they have pushed away the threat at the very least. The action here is pretty good, but at the same time, the story just has been lacking. I'll stay with this show for awhile seeing that Reoko is actually 40 years old, but she's in the body of a 16-year-old.

Episode 2

Uh-Oh, things are picking up!

The action was nice and other characters are getting involved. Still, the story progression should pick up soon.

Ready for more.

Episode 2

This series has a pretty fast pacing imo. In just two episodes, we got tons of action, Azuma being targeted because of his relations with his mother, etc. Roeko has a psychotic personality imo with the way she fought those kids. Also, it looks like Azuma has some hidden potentials (might of been inherited from his parents?)

I don't expect strong characterization for this show if the action keeps up like this. But so far, it definitely has my attention.

Episode 2

Higher quality CGI in the OP sure made the lesser quality CGI in the episode more noticeable imo.

Hiiragi this episode: ORE GA...ORE GA...ORE GA

Reoko's laugh=cringe.

Guessing this'll likely be 2 cour cause they have alot things to explain,sure this is only the second episode but still with Reoko and her posse,Azuma's mom,Azuma's sister,the Bubuki it seems like too much for 13 episodes without it either being rushed or things being left unanswered.
