It won't load for me on any setting other than SD right now. Don't know if I'm the only one having this problem or not, but it's pretty annoying.

It's not just you, I also get no playback. The dl.vrv.co server which hosts the data returns 502 - Bad Gateway for the m3u playlist which controls the playback.

Episode 1

Here comes the Red Queen as Sana is a lab rat who escaped, and she got some help in her escape. So the next day, Zouroku meets Sana in a conveni and the twins Asahi and Yonaga have come out to capture Sana and causing quite a lot of destruction. The kids are turned into the police, but they escape and wipe out all the evidence. So Sana decides to make Zouroku her servant in her quest to crush the research facility and Zouroku takes her in for awhile to work as an assistant florist. It's off to a pretty good start here as that car chase was pretty thrilling, all while those scientists are up to no good. Not to mention, the relationship between Sana and Zouroku that's building after the old man got caught up in all this.

Episode 1

Hmm, I think the first episode was interesting. The CGI car stuff was distracting but besides that, I think the show built itself with its world setting in a way that I found pretty curious.

Surprisingly good soundtrack so far.

From the character cast, they introduced Sana, Zouroku, Hinagiri twins, etc. There's a feel of mystery in the air as well especially with Sana. I'm curious to know about her more. Between Zouroku and Sana, I like their character chemistry so far. In general, I think the first episode (44+ minutes) set up the story well. I'm interested to see more.

Definitely a good premiere with Sana escaping the laboratory and stumbling into Zouroku. The relationship between the two is going to be interesting as Sana tries to end the mad schemes of the scientists. That car chase was thrilling and loved how the Hinagiri Twins caused mayhem. Overall a nice set up episode for the foundation of the story

I thought it was interesting mainly becuase of the old guy . A very nice set-up for the story in this episode and introduced a lot of characters just in one episode.
This made me curious how the story will develop. Will follow.

but all the CG background people and CG car chase was distracting.

Really liked the opening episode, pity about the CGI but I guess that can make the difference between a show getting made or not.

I got the feeling from the fight between Sana and the twins that things won't get too dark with this show which I'm happy about.

I wonder when the "other side" will come back into play, after helping Sana's escape they didn't feature at all (or did I miss something)

Liked it. If they keep the focus on the relationship between Sana and Zoroku and not overplay the psychic abilities stuff, it should be a really good story.

Hopefully they don't turn this one into yet another magical girl-type shows, but we'll see.

Excellent first episode, and it will be interesting to see exactly how they play it going forward. They could go more odd couple pairing or more thriller action and I could see either working pretty well.

Outside of the poor CGI, which others have already mentioned, I'll also say I'm just not a fan of the art style in general. The backgrounds and animation are nice but the characters are, quite frankly, ugly.

Definitely eager to see more of this one.
