A fairly promising start.

Mikado Ryūgamine is a bit overly milquetoast for my taste, but the rest of the cast (so far) comes across very well.

The premise of this anime is pretty unusual, and when combined with the alluring scenery and visuals, this anime gives off a definitive "cool" vibe.

The ED animation is pretty sweet.

The use of text messages to push the plot along was kind of neat at first... but it seemed a bit overused by the end of the episode.


Overall, a pretty tight first episode, and I'm definitely looking forward to more.

That guy's the director of those Brains Base masterpieces and also Gakuen Alice (Hadn't seen much of Haibane Renmei)? Sweet~

Sapphire-pyro posted the joined together ED last week, though thanks for posting it again, because i love seeing it. Funny how i start humming the ED to myself the second i clicked on that link.

The official blog for the series has posted the cover art for the first two DVD volumes.



Oh how i just love this, especially the color format. Can't wait for the rest, including future high res versions.

Lol, nice idea, should be bigger though, can barely see anything.

I keep getting this feeling that I'm watching modern Baccano!, the whole Motorcyclist idea reminds me of Rail Traicer, plus kidnapping, crazy guys and stuff like that.

I really disliked Baccano! on a screen in the middle of an episode though, WHY JACUZZI SPLOT?!

Second volume is absolute love, it's the sort of cover I might impluse buy (if the price wasn't too high). The pink and black constrat looks great.

The proportions looks slightly off in the first volume, hopefully they'll fix it for the proper release.

Hmmm... To me, it felt EXACTLY like Baccano along with a lot of borderline unnecessary banter. Also, could they have gotten any lazier with the OP? It's the SAME style as Baccano's.

Not too bad, but just like with Baccano, it somewhat tests the patience to hear all that banter when they could just pass it along with action instead. Which is what it somewhat boils down to. Oh well. At least its quality is a lot better than Baccanos. No more wiggly-noodles-animation.

I am totally in love with the second DVD cover~ Izaya + pink is a wonderful combination xD Hahahaha!

About the OP being the same style as Baccano's . . . though I find it cool, I still prefer that they used a different style. To show on how much more unique ideas this brilliant staff could come up with xD Hehe.

But hhhmmm . . . maybe by doing that they're advertising Baccano in a way. It lacks recognition so much . . .

I don't mind the OP being exactly the same as Baccano ! Not only does it still looks cool, it also helps a lot in learning the names of the tons of characters. I guess they could have tried to make it a little different but oh well.

The DVD covers look pretty nice. I can't wait until Anri and Izaya are introduced.

About the DVD cover, it is just me, or the first DVD cover looks off proportion? Namely, Kida's legs.
