Wow, that surprised me.

I had moderately decent expectations for this show, but the first episode turned out better than I was anticipating. Going by what I just watched alone, I would say this has the potential to be a slightly above average show for me. The characters seem like they will be likable and the whole quiz show premise seems interesting to me.

True, I can't say a lot happened in this episode, yet it felt well-balanced and didn't try to stretch itself to be something it wasn't. (Looking at you Fox Spirit Matchmaker.) It was just enjoyable, just enough to keep me engaged without praying for it to just be over and end my misery. I will be continuing this as I am curious to see if they can keep the quiz parts entertaining.

I will say that Fukami's voice seems like it was recorded with a muffled microphone and then not synced properly with the character. It just seems really off. Actually, this is probably the thing I had the most problems with this episode, however I might get used to it over time. I won't say it was awful, just awkward I guess.

Meh, I love quiz shows but I don't know about this. I can see them trying to make it dramatic and interesting but that's going to be an uphill battle. Surprised I knew so many of the quiz questions, thought they'd be more Japanese oriented. And yeah, the girl's voice is not your typical seiyu's voice. Actually I just didn't really care for the character, I realize a show like this needs a cute girl but, I don't know... she's too normal or something.

I wasn't going to watch this, but with the rain and everything I decided to check it out.

I was pleasantly surprised. I'll give it at least the 3 episode try.

I like the character designs overall. I liked how the typically unassuming boy seems to be garnering a little bit of confidence and self-worth.

I actually liked Fumika and her voice. She's a cute girl.

I'm going to give this one a chance. Especially if I can learn any random knowledge from it myself.

The main girl reminds me of Chihaya from Chihayafuru for some reason...



It was okay I guess but the humor felt really cheesy and doesn't escape cliche pitfalls. (I mean, accidentally seeing a girl's panties..)
The quiz stuff got me interested into the show though as viewers can play along with the episodes.

Well I really like it...Only got 1 question right so far

As for Fukami's voice, I just found it rather plain. Nothing good about it, yet nothing bad about it either, hopefully Kawashima Umika can get more experienced in the show though!

To anyone in the UK, University Challenge is quiz bowl. I'm pretty good at UC if I say so myself

I liked the premise and seemed well executed for the first episode, I will be placing this in my queue and yes Mari's VA was stiff, and wooden, especially playing off the other two very charismatic male counterparts (MC and Senpai-quiz-kun). But she is a newbie and I have high hopes that it will improve as the show goes on.

A quiz is the theme for this? Nice to see something different. Somehow, i knew that was Osamu Dazai's quotes.

Fukami: "Then... How about a question like this?" *points at thigh*
Me: *slams down on space bar* "ZETTAI RYOUIKI!"

I liked how Fukami's ZR would cast blinding light at those in "certain circles." Those poor nerds!
The little rules and tidbits the characters would mention are pretty interesting. Like how the one guy would buzz in early to guess the "classics" since there were no penalties, or the girl who buzzed a question just to stop Shiki from answering it. I'm curious to see what other strategies they show off.

Great episode launching right into quiz bowl with other schools- we have all girls school with old middle school best friend and some new cocky dudes with buzzer experience. The time goes fast during episode but also I like learning the break down of the contest and tendencies

Meeting a bunch of new characters and maybe a rival that gets BTFO'd next episode. Anyways I do like that we're jumped straight into a quiz bowl. Let's see where the team ends up next episode.

I like Fukami voice. Its kind of nice not hearing high pitch kawaii voices. Her voice sounds like a few tom boyish girls. Case in point, when she points at her thighs to make an otaku question, there was little to no embrassement. That reaction in the end is not like im embrassed, its more like i cant believe that loser was able to make it out on a question that i asked him this morning.

Kind of telegraphed the ending, there. I can forgive them since the answer was ZETTAI RYOUIKI!

She's also a bit stilted, which is perfectly in character.

Getting interesting. Though one thing I'm hoping is he doesn't make it far since it is his first time. Close maybe, win no.

So weird hearing a real voice and not someone trying to sound cute. Anyway this show reminds me why I like Jeopardy's rule of not being allowed to buzz in until the entire "answer" is read. Focusing on these little tricks to make this show exciting just isn't working for me, this show needed some other plot with just the quizbowl as a background theme. Focusing on the quizbowl part, well even on the show the club only got 4 members because two liked the cute girl on the team.
