Bones always does an excellent job with the comedic timing, and the animation in the fight at the end of the episode was great. It also had the best opening song I´ve heard so far in this season. Overall, very good first episode, not as good as JoJo, but still a great way to start off the series. Actually now that I think about it, the last part of the episode when Osamu tells Atsushi that he will be one of them reminded me of the first episode of Blood Blockade Battlefront with Leo joining Libra, I guess it makes sense since that anime was also made by Bones.

I´ll gladly watch every episode from now on, it looks like this will be one of the best anime this season.

Hmmm... well, it's got some real pretty backgrounds but overall it just left me sort of cold so far. It just screams style over substance, and it comes across as thinking it's way cooler, edgier and funnier than it actually is. It's like the anime version of a Quintin Tarrantino movie (and I'm sure a lot of people will love it, just like they do Tarrantino). I'll give it a little more time but I'm far from sold after the first episode.

Great first episode. Seems like a combination of Baccano! and Lovely Muuuuuuuco!

Oh man if I was forced against my will to say that this anime is a combination of 2 other shows, it would probably be A Certain Scientific Railgun mixed with Medabots.

Sorry guys but its clearly a refined mixed between I would say Samurai Champloo with Spice and Wolf, and just a bit of Hetalia Axis Powers sprinkled in.

You guys are all way off. It's definite Detective Conan meets X-men. :/ Oh plus Utapri you know, for the ladies.

Actually that sounds pretty cool.

Episode 1

Atsushi got kicked out of the orphanage and saved a man who was determined to drown himself in the river. As it turns out, they are both of the supernatural as Dazai has the power to nullify supernatural powers, and Atsushi can turn into a tiger, which was why he was kicked out as he laid waste to that place. But with Dazai's power, he can be tamed, and they join other literary geniuses as part of his family. That was a great way to begin this show seeing that while it was all about the mystery, they managed to crack some nice jokes along the way.

Between lunch, the champions league and a few phone calls, it took me almost 4 hours to finish this episode. And what a first episode!

At first I wasn't sure if I wanted to watch this show, having only one spot left in my seasonal quota for anime, but I couldn't resist the Bones x popular original work combination. Definitely did not disappoint. Can't wait to learn more about the other characters. I saw that Taiga coming a mile away though...




Looks like the people who voted on this poll a while back we're on to something:
Japanese Readers Name Manga or Light Novel Most Deserving of Anime Adaptation


P.S: Obviously a combination of Hamatora and Ghost Stories.

Oh wow, this isn't a shaft production like i thought. They had me fooled there with that aesthetic, guess it goes to show how good bones can be when they want to.

Pretty excited to see how this series plays out. I really like the visual aesthetic, character designs, etc. for the most part. In my opinion, this season looks really interesting as a whole with quite a few potentially promising series.

Eh wasn't a fan of that, seems like it's going to be super pretentious. It certainly has style but in terms of substance I thought there was very little and their attempt to establish the setting was quite frankly terrible. Will give it a few more episodes but being that it's Bones I can't see it changing.

Bowls of tea on rice

Are they gonna go the fast food chain restaurant whose mascot looks similar to the antagonist from the 90's movie It and order a beef patty, tomatoes, onions, lettece, ketchup, and mustard all placed inside a sesame bun sandwich.
