wow.... man, you could really tell that there were so many things missing from this particular episode.

First, the OP song and the animation did not match at all. They had this really somber, slow song but the actions of the characters in the animation seemed to be more fit for an upbeat, bubble gum style of OP song.

Then there are all of those action scenes which basically lacked even basic sound effects for some of the actions being taken. Like it was confusing to see that character use "crazy" Youkai powers but have no actual sound effect associated with their use.

Of course this is all not really even touching on the plot which seemed completely incomprehensible.

I make it a point to watch every anime show that comes out each season. At least I was able to make up my mind about this one fairly quickly.

The original Chinese version is better. Honestly it just felt odd and the pacing just felt off. Even through the original first few episodes were a little bit of a miss, the Japanese version is a lot worse. Everything easily gets alot better after the first 40 mins or 1-4 of the chinese version. Also i think the Chinese voice acting is better.

It felt like the story was improvised in the recording booth by the voice actors then they challenged someone to animate it in a week. >.>

Well I tried to watch the entire episode but couldn't make it passed minute 13. This doesn't deserve to be on CR's catalog or any other.

It just made no sense, lacked story, was missing audio during fight scenes, incoherent and full of key stone cops cake in the face blunders.

Removed from queue and my mind...

Episode 1

Finally got around to watching and it's watchable at least for me. Yeah they did try with the jokes as some of them didn't work out and I found it weird how one of the characters would only do stuff if he got candy outta of it. So far the only thing I like is Susu as she's really cute and I like her voice. Other than that it's pretty much whatever... I'll continue to watch see if it gets better.

So let me see if I got this right.
It's a Chinese cartoon dubbed in Japanese and subbed in English
I can't possibly see what could go wrong

Almost.

It's a Chinese web cartoon whose length is 10 mins to 18 mins per episode, spliced together to make it a 23 minute anime episode, dubbed in Japanese and subbed in English.

The main characters are also just ridiculous idiots who are there to make jokes and basically fail at everything. What makes the show endearing is the surrounding actors who basically toy around with the main characters.

First question I had: Why does one of the main characters wrap his braid around his neck like a noose?

The answer I got: He watched the anime he was in.

Despite the fact I hold little love for the character design, this was actually one of the shows I was most looking forward to this season. I don't pay much attention to production company (Something I am finding lately I should probably do.) or who is cast to voice act, so I generally just go by premise alone when picking what I am going to watch. I more often than not at least get shows that I think are passable, this was not one of those. It sort of reminds me of my feelings for 'If Her Flag Breaks.' Pure disappointment.

The first episode was an absolute mess and I was pretty sure the characters didn't even know who or where they were. Not to mention the main male character came off as extremely unlikable, not even the candy thing, which I think was there to make him more appealing, could redeem him.


And then all the clan politics and feuds that were thrown in and barely touched upon. There were just so many things about this first episode that made it more frustrating to watch rather than relaxing or fun. I will probably give episode two a watch just to see if this show even has a chance of gaining some sort of direction, but unless something major happens this will probably remain my biggest disappointments of the season.

The comedy bits halfway through lost me. It's just really dumb, and the story-boarding can't transition through shots to save it's life. The animation didn't seem that bad, but it feels like there's some major failures at the writing, directing, and editing levels.

This show is kind of a hot mess after one episode, but I can't make any judgements til I see the next one or two. Feels like it's going in multiple directions and it needs to settle on one or two.

I get a "A Certain Magical Index" vibe from it but that could be totally wrong by the next episode.
