Yeah, the piece there (and from the trailer) is very Kenji Kawai. I'm glad Taku is doing something new here, because it's about time. He has plenty of talent, and i want to hear more of it.

Kuroshitsuji's score is probably my second fav' Taku work, so it's a must listen. Do so soon!

Speaking of bats. Aren't all people in Maniwa Army designed after certain beasts?
Ugh... I don't know anything until the subs come out. So, Koumori wasn't acting as a free agent? I've seen fanart of him with the other dudes, but I didn't know how they were related to eachother. I'm guessing that the first episode is the only and last time Koumori appears, so maybe it's a different army dude each episode/novel?

Zaregoto needs to be animated. Please announce soon Nisio, it will be 2018 before the novel series is fully released in English at this rate/
For the life of me I can't remember much action in the first two episodes of Bakemonogatari, but that one had a lot stronger fanservice and definitely a lot more movements between different places and scenes (also Hitagi's sharp tongue ... I swear most of the anime male fans are M), which .. Zaregoto will have when animated regarding the latter part. The part Katanagatari is pigeoned hole into is the setting for the first half of the first novel. I think Zaregoto's anime will be depended upon the sales of Katanagatari because they have the same artist. As long as the Elevens like it, I guess it'll be fine even if the rest of the world fine it boring =X, but 2ch doesn't seem to like it me thinks.

Heh heh. I can see a lot of people doing that. Good thing the character designs and artwork are so original, otherwise I wouldn't have even bothered with it in the first place.

Is it too terribly disturbing that i think Koumori's smexy?

Ok, I seriously think that this series should get its own separate forum here. I mean look, the next episode airs in 1 and a half week and we clearly need separate threads for different episodes. Also, a light novel spoiler discussion thread would be nice too.

The next episode airs in a month.

& you can go create a novel thread in the manga and light novel section.

The first episode aired and we're still at the 12th page... Not really sure we need a forum (at least at the current pace of discussion in this thread).

Still no sub sadly. I do agree we probably don't need a forum yet.

How exactly did you come up with "storyless" to describe this? Talking, definitely, nice visuals sure, but considering most of the talking was a story and far more than many other things I've watched, I just don't get how you came to that conclusion. I feel like you watched a different show.

Don't worry, there's more stuff with her.

BTW, I think the episode has been subbed now. I'm watching a streamed version.

Also ,is there a seperate novel thread yet? I want to ask a question to anyone who has read the original novels.

I rather like it myself. I was surprised that it was 40+ minutes long and expected more action than what was actually shown, but this is just an introduction episode so I can forgive the fact that it was pretty much all chat. I'm hoping for more kick ass action next episode though. The character designs are what stood out for me and I have to say that I really like the minimalistic yet artistic style of the characters. They also have great personalities and even without saying it, I've fallen for Togame being such an air head trying to be sly, Yukari was a perfect choice for her voice

Although I am surprised that Onee-san got left behind on that island...booo -.-
So far I'm sold

Man I need to look at Mazui's page more often. This would have slipped under my radar since I didn't know it airs today. Impressions tomorrow.
