I'm beginning to wonder if Funimation hasn't made an investment in FujiTV to produce Noitamina shows. With the current spring crop of shows, we've seen FujiTV expand Noitamina to an hour and begin simulcasted episodes via Funi. Late last year Funi announced it would invest directly in the production of anime shows, though at the time the list appeared limited to childrens' shows. Still after having licensed Eden of the East, and this simulcasting deal, it looks to me like Funimation has decided to throw some bucks in Fuji's direction.

Allright first post (on opinon of show)

I generally liked it, I watched it twice actually. Not like I liked it THAT much but to get used to it.

The graphics are excellent and characters interesting (Akashi-san is really charming IMHO). Only problem I have is why Yuuasa (or whomever) decided to have (Watashi) reading the narration faster than he if he was an auction MCee.

BTW funi already subbed it and is up on its website so it should be in Current Series now.

Kaiba, Kemonozume, and Mind Game (which is my favorite of the three).

I've only seen Mind Game once, yet still remember it. Great movie.

After watching it a second time, I got used to the pacing. If I met a girl like Akashi-san in college, i'd be really into her.

I just saw subs floating around but I'm not familiar with the group. Anyone know what other groups are subbing?

Funi official subs, meaning talk about other subs aren't allowed in this thread.

Posting this here too, yesterday's ratings from 2ch:

*1.6%
24:45-25:45 CX* noitaminA - Yojouhan Shinwa Taikei - Saraiya Goyou
*2.2% 25:25-25:55 TBS Ookiku Furikabutte ~Natsu no Taikai-hen~ (I'm not sure the fanbases overlap, but let's assume.)

Ouch, noitaminA. Weirder series aren't working out too good for you (Kuuchuu Buranko did badly too).

Eh. I thought it was a Crunchy license. Whatever the case it's aired so I guess it can move to the Currents now.

Holy shit I'm surprised my brain didn't fucking explode after the first three and a half minutes. I can't even speak my native language that fast...

And... Madhouse? First thing that came to mind for me was a trippy mixture of Studio 4C's Eternal Family and one of those episodes from Sweat Punch rather than a Madhouse animation. I guess Masaaki Yuasa got his way though, which is to be expected the director of Kaiba and animation producer of Cat Soup.

If anyone is confused about something feel free to ask me to explain...

There's a lot of things that might be hard to catch even on repeated viewings.

Bloody hell, fast dialogues are fast. I feel like there were more lines in this episode than everything I've watched throughout the week. I'm impressed by the main character's seiyuu.

Very good first episode. I'm enjoying the visual art style that's a little more conventional than usual for Yuasa, though still very original compared to most anime. The characters were also enjoyable, and the story is shaping up to be interesting. I'm not sure what to make of the end of the episode, with the time rewind. I think we're going to see his past in the next episodes but... He didn't die, did he?

He fell into a flash flood. The river has been widened carefully to ensure it doesn't enter the city, but when it rains all those mountains around Kyoto feed into it, and it turns into ten feet of raging water that could sweep you miles downstream even if you know how to swim. People do die in it regularly.

I'm guessing the show's going to follow a Groundhog Day deal, with each episode resetting to the club selection, and seeing how things turn out differently.

Spoiler for episode 1:

Great episode indeed with these specific visuals and creative things as expected from Yuasa.
And as Maaya Sakamoto fan, I'm completely satisfied this spring with this role and Nino's voice from Arakawa under the Bridge

Oh, totally loved it (though I was torn between the frantic attempt to keep up with the dialogue and wanting to watch what Yuasa was doing!).

Akashi's design struck me for a moment, and I was trying to figure out why. Then I did -- Rei Ayanami... only wacky...

Heh. This one'll be fun.

That does seem a plausible theory, based upon clues in the first episode, and also taking Mind Game into account, although I'm guessing things don't turn out that different, because he seems to be ignoring his own participation in everything that happened.

BTW, the ED was awesome.

Kuuchuu Buranko didn't bode well with me either, but only because I didn't like real shots of human that particular anime.

Episode 1 was really funny. I love the character interactions and the small things (like the God went and called someone after he asked him to go through with the decision). There isn't much to comment on the actual story right now, but like the other noitaminA show this season, the characters are very fun to watch.

I wasn't going to watch this because of the character design (can't help it, human nature just goes against weird looking things), but I always give it shot anyway and I fell in love with it just like all the other ones that I thought they looked weird (ex: One Piece). Really the plot didn't really progress much beyond laying the basic groundwork, but the face pace talking gave me an insane feeling of pacing that I found very enjoyable and even a bit intense like I was watching an action show.

Shame that this has such a low rating, the directing is wonderful and captivating. Thought immersion is wonderful storytelling if done correctly.
