Off to an interesting start, doubt that frantic pace will keep up I'll stick around to see where this goes and if that girl's back cab last the whole season.

I hated ever minute of the first episode. I do fine with subtitles, but I know some people get disoriented or real slow. Despite that, it was the pace of speaking that annoyed the heck out of me. Like a machine gun of b***hing in Japanese. Gets old.

Unsure if the genre topic is of any interest, as well. They start with occult, but go into voodoo and poltergeists. Yawn. Was hoping for something greater. Occult is such a vast topic...

Male MC voice sounded familiar.

CrunchyRoll has a fairly shoddy record of picking shows to champion before they even air and this one isn't helping that any.


I agree. CR could use notes out of American prime time, by first priming viewers what their season will be like, and persuading them to taste test. Especially in writing format. It is not like we all don't have email they could send a season primer to, considering we signed up to here to watch...

CR Twitter is mostly non-readable to typical folks. Not a good way to reach out and connect, unless that person is already infatuated. At that point, they'd buy dog poop, so what's the point?

All shows have trailers or PV's before they air. They can be found on youtube or other video sites. Just by typing in Occultic;nine trailer in a search engine it'll show what kind of content the show has

Edit: I'm not replying to anyone in particular but just posting it here to help people out

Didn't watch with subs, Kaji need to slow. down. That's a looooot of lines man. Also waaaaay too much net slangs thrown in, but I'm liking that. So far liking the setup, may pickup the novel if it stays interesting.

I wasn't too hyped before I watched the first episode but I thought it could surprise me. I like Steins;Gate because the story is really entertaining but the scientific part of it is just stupid so I thought a series from the same author but without bs-science could be better. Sadly the first episode was a mess and some of the characters are pretty annoying (and I guess I don't have to write down what I think about lipstick man ).
I didn't finish the first episode because I couldn't enjoy it at all but after reading that the first episode covered the first volume I might give it another try (could be better without such an insane pacing) .

I have to ask: Have you attempted any of the Monogatari shows yet? Because, if this pace of speaking bugs you, I'm interested in how you handled those.

It was an alright episode, definitely might of missed any important conversations due to the face pace in speaking.


But friendship!

I had to look it up. Sorry, I have not seen it. Wikipedia says, "The Monogatari series revolves around Koyomi Araragi, a third-year high school student who is almost human again after briefly becoming a vampire.," which may be why I never considered it. I have seen too many vampires, zombies, etc. stuff in my life, lol.

I almost skipped watching The Outsider, because of the first episode. But I hung on and liked it. The zombie crap was just 2 episodes of it, and the undead was not the focus.

Ep. 1

Got Bakemonogatari vibes with a bit of Durarara on the art style, but story-wise I dunno (its certainly not to Steins;Gate level). And *sigh* I'm really disappointed in whatever they tried to accomplish with Ryoka's design. I can't even really think of it as fan-service since its so awkward and out of place; I literally kept expecting some reveal to happen where something was hiding in her shirt because her chest looks so ridiculous. I don't really know whether to blame A-1 for that design choice or Chiyomaru Shikura, depending on if she's always been that absurd or was altered for the anime. I'll give it a few more episodes but not really too pulling for me.

Turns out Ryoka's design used to be even dumber
