Knowledge of the original game. No spoilering, but the game has one of the most closely interwined character routes. (Other games you get different story branches for different characters, but this one is different) Not to mention that the storyline seems to leave little space for such things.

Game progress: 9/16 first day, haven't went into Red Night yet.

A pretty decent first episode overall, they moved a bit faster than i thought they would, but this was probably a good place where to end the episode now that i think about it - slower would have likely made it a wee bit too draggy. I rather like the artwork and soundtrack, and the OP is pretty nice as well, was expecting no less from Ayane. As for the episode itself ... well, not that much to say, as they are just setting things up for the moment. I felt the transition to the red night was stretched just a tad too long, but ah well. One thing this episode did remind me of though - just how close Yuka and Kakeru look, i guess that is about as close to being a couple without actually being one as one can get

On another note, Even though this was only the first episode, they already introduced a few changes compared to the game ... or rather, added some things that weren't there originally. A few changes i have hard time imagining where they would be going with, so time will tell i guess.

Spoiler for The few changes compared to the game within the frame of episode1, no spoilers regarding future events (remember, those are not allowed!):


And now, a week until the next episode. Chances are it is going to appeal more to those who craved some "action" compared to the first one, but remember that this show is mainly survival horror fantasy, which, while having its dose of action, isn't going to be the next Bleach either, so don't go expecting tons of action each and every episode, that is not what the show is about primarily

As I said, if they're not dating, they're obviously
very close. Again, don't underestimate the hizamakura in anime. (seriously, they don't do that without serious implication)

Oh, so you haven't actually finished the game yet?

Well, just watched the first episode. Interesting to say the least. Reminded me a lot of Chaos Head.

I'm not sure if I'll stick with this one, since I don't care for the protagonist's much... but we'll see. Hopefully it won't crap out at the end.

Exactly what I thought. But then, this series reminds people about a couple things.

That question cannot be answered at this time, but I think she was on Lucky Star once.

Wow, talk about a bad anime. I'll probably drop this by episode 2.

Nope... slowly playing my way through. But I know a bit about the endings since I do read certain sites.

Overall, the first episode was great, was really looking forward to this once I heard it was gonna be animated. Anyway, spotted a few things different from the game, lots of small details but I'm lazy to type em so I'm just gonna mention the parts which I think are important. Also, I won't mention things that Skyfall has already mentioned.

Spoiler for Differences. Don't open if you don't want any spoilers:

I'm thinking that this anime will be revolving between Yuka, Misuzu and Kakeru in the romance area since the OP and ED pratically hinted it.
Anyone else besides me find the girls cuter in the anime than in the game?

I have watched both the OP and ED half a dozen times by now, and i must say i don't see anything in there that would hint at any romance solutions. I don't really mind if they don't twiddle much with romance here (without tweaking it heavily at least), because the romance aspect was very very poorly handled in the game. That aside though, i also have an idea of whose ending this might be, and lets just say my view half differs from yours

Actually, it might be me overlooking things but, if you have noticed, around 0:33 to 0:35 of the OP, Yuka and Misuzu were shown together, with the other main female leads shown one at the time. And from 0:36 to 0:42 of the ED, Yuka and Misuzu were shown together, back to back. Normally from most of the romance anime I've watched, the two girls vying for one guy's attention are usually shown together in the OP and ED.

Also I just noticed after rerunning this episode in my head.

Well that was a bit too fast for my liking, but the premises are making me interested. The only thing I felt was a bit out of the place were those random pantyshots...

And it honestly puzzles me why they included a hungarian translation for the episode title. "Piros éjszaka" indeed means "Red night" in hungarian, but I can't even begin to imagine what might have been the reason to have it translated into such an unusual language like ours.

I looked at wikipedia, and why the heck was Shiori placed under side character? She's a gettable heroine in the game, isn't she?

I am quite surprised they did that, actually - but lets say the choice hasn't been completely random on their part, though it will likely take quite some time in to the story to find out why

I wondered the same thing... I thought Shiori was one of the main characters.

Shiori is not a main character in the game, according to this walkthrough:
http://g-seeker.net/game/a/11eyes.html

She might be in the 360 version, which expanded this and that, but the anime is based off the PC version.
