This one kind of took me by surprise, of all the first episodes I've watched in the winter season so far I think this is easily my favorite. Good sense of humor, solid action, good characters, and some pretty creative powers, I'm sold so far. Stylish show.

Minimum Holders are basically backwards Contractors from Darker than Black.

Ep 2

I have to wonder how long they're going to keep doing the whole "all cases are actually connected" schtick. It's fun after the first time or so but after a while, it loses it's significance.

Episode 2

Yeah, it feels like a cycle now...but at least the case is new.

Kitazawa is a suspect huh? The ending kinda caught my interest though. Also, I'm in love with that ED song.

And so, it's another case, and this one involves something going on at school where the guy tries to get revenge for having a photo of him leaked, and some mastermind who is manipulating perception. He can accelerate time, but it's not exactly best used to speed up time bombs when grenades will give an instant explosion. Sounds like there is something big about to go down, and some big wig is getting ready to build an army of Minimum holders himself to rule the city with an iron fist. Anyway, I was just bored by this episode, and I think I have had enough of this show for the time being.

It as kinda interesting, a little revelation of Nice past at that school.
This anime seems to go episodic with mini plots within the main plot and it is all about the minimum peeps and that serial killer which is tying all the characters together and that school?


As long as they develop the characters then this one will become interesting enough to keep me watching it.
But There are so many characters , so hopefully......they can pull it off. Durarara did it in 7 episodes.

This probably just got back on my watch list, mostly thanks to Hajime and the introduction of a multi-episode plotline.

I think I'm trying to keep up with too much this season, but oh well.

The first episode didn't inspire much interest for me; but now that it's introduced what might be a deranged major villain, it looks like it might go places.

Ep 2.

Decent story
Good twist
A pretty dark "feel good" ending
An actual subplot that has some stakes

I thought I'd be dropping this one. I was wrong.

Edit: I just hope the subplot doesn't become the main plot at the expense of the detective stories.

I'm still not sure if I'll keep this one. It entirely depends on how good the next episode is.

This show has a ton of potential I think but it's hard to say based on the first 2 episodes if it will deliver.

Despite the very colorful style of it, it does seem like this show is quickly going down a pretty dark path. The reveal of the serial killer and the scene at the end are very telling of what to expect going forward, I think. I do kind of like the juxtaposition of a very colorful and upbeat artstyle with a good bit of humor and the darker tones that are creeping in pretty quickly.

So yeah. I'll stick with it, this could turn out to be very good or it could absolutely bomb depending on how things are handled from here, but it certainly has a good enough set up.

Bit different from a lot of the other new shows this season, where I think it's pretty easy to tell immediately if you're going to enjoy them or not. This one isn't quite as upfront about what it's doing.

Falling after this episode for me.

I mean, yay brains (jk), but more bland to me than the last episode. The "happy" ending with Theo...didn't care much for that.

Moving towards dropping danger zone.

Me too. I keep falling asleep in this anime. It has good spots but... I dunno. Not really grabbing me.

Still get the durararararararara feeling watching this. I'm curious to know what the girl's ability that Nice sits next to when they are at headquarters. Surely more than just eating 24-7 right?

Episode 2
An okay episode.

Lol'd @ Birthday's horrible timing.

So the antagonist appears.Pretty creepy that you need a Minimum Holder's brain to become one.

Also really like the OP.
