All I'll say about the OP animation is... LOTS OF STAPLERS AND STAPLES. Song is alright.

*goes back to watching ep 2*

Basically Negima OAD's OP but with stapler instead of billiard balls. It's for one-episode use, though.

I didn't like ep 2 at all. Massively disappointed. It's my own fault for reading the novel, I guess.

Loved ep2. Loved the house set-up. Loooved Saitou Chiwa. The Shinbou rhythms suck some drama out of things, but substitute a pleasantly weird feeling of their own.

OP animation is good, especially the photographs, but not as good as those for other recent Shinbou shows. I did like the song, however, sung by Saitou Chiwa (!)

She wrote the lyrics.

I'd marry Chiwa, but she can't sing.

As the lyricist, if I recall correctly from pre-airing staff info posted here. EDIT: D'oh, ninja'd.

Still waiting patiently to watch ep2... I have uTorrent scheduled so as not to raise the suspicions of my dad, who insists the bandwidth usage affects our phone service. :P Can't wait to see it, though.

Ah so Meg Rock will be writing the lyrics and the VA for each arcs Heroine will be singing than I guess. When it gets to Nadeko Snake I hope Kana Hanazawa can sing better than she did in Kannagi as Zange lol.

Pacing at the end is a bit off, but judging from what the Assistant Producer Oshima Miku said on the official blog, it's more of an editing problem than direction miss (not enough broadcast time) so I guess it'll be fixed in the BD/DVD release.
Sounds like an excuse...

Just looked at the episode from Tenka Seiha blog.

... Why do I feel that Hitagi seems similar, but different in her own way to a certain character in a certain manga... yes, I know both are written by Nisio Isin (the manga is drawn by someone else) but... yeah.

Pointing out her physical appearance + ... uh, showing herself off in undergarments habit to the main male lead...

Spoiler for OP:


Anyway, an interesting episode! Although I really have to wait for subs because I can't say I understood more than a smattering of lines and familiar keywords.

Spoiler for What I gathered:


Anyway! In high anticipation of subtitles (or at least the next summary that rolls along the blogosphere) and next week's episode.

Don't know, but this happens in the second episode of Maria Holic, too (same editor). The biggest problem is they used five animation directors by the second episode, which means they won't be able to keep the quality so long.

I thought she couldn't sing until I heard this OP. Probably the result of some technical magic keeping her in tune, but it sounded good to me.

I've been using various seiyuus as my avatar for 2-3 years now. I think Chiwa was the first. In fact, I think she was the first seiyuu whose name I knew, from being captivated by her when she played Hazuki in Tsukuyomi Moon Phase.

Not having been a fan of ARIA, she dropped from my view for a while. But here she is, doing an excellent, very professional job -- although unfortunately not sounding like her old self, but the new mature and homogenized version.
