Well, I liked the first episode. But I have a question. You're takling about the panty joke. I know it from the manga but I didn't see it in the anime? Did I watch a cut version of the anime? When Utao fell Aki only looked and I heard an "ah" and nothing else. Did I miss something?

Another question. How old are the characters? I guess that Kyohei, Hibino and Aki are above 20? If I remember correctly you're allowed to drink alcohol in Japan if you reached your 20th birthday? Not sure about that.

Yeah, Hibinos breasts are really huge, but they were also huge in the manga, or not? I need to reread the manga.

For some reason, the first thing I thought when I watched this was it reminds me just a bit of Shadow Star...

I think Kuramitsuha's mono eye looks like a Hygogg.

From what I know, this is just the way the anime decided to present it. In other words, even if the manga had a pantyshot, the anime decided to not deliver one.

Either that, or there were some really well-done censoring that I couldn't tell. Nowadays, censors are just fog or light or black holes though/

I don't know, this series kind of struck me as too serious for that, and I thought Brain Base was above pandering of such kind. Clearly, I was mistaken.

Like with Pokemon and Inazuma Eleven.
Then again, this isn't as popular, so there probably won't be much of that, hopefully.

Anyways, vote for Utao. Vote for Utao...
What are the other choices of this poll? I want to know what to expect

Aki's joke from the manga was cut out, but we still saw Utao trying to hide her panties from him in the anime. She looked pretty cute when she did that, so that's why we're talking about it.

my first series of the season, not bad overall

Kyohei is too generic, Hibino is nice but her chest ruin her design... Utao looks like the typical imouto but she is likable, Aki is more interesting and reminds me of Accelerator from Index, now we only have to guess in which eps will Kyohei open the bathroom door of Hibino

both kakashi design is not attractive enough, the OP and ED are good tho

Honestly the biggest problem I had with the first is that I found the main three character generically boring. Hopefully the characters will be made more interesting the up coming episodes.

Also I really like the opening.

I have to say that when I first saw this on chart's for the summer season, I must have been either intoxicated or something else of that notion.

I expected something more on par with a slice of life from the title and the cutesy art.

Holy crap, was I horribly mistaken and am now extremely interested. Although, honestly, the episode was not exactly the greatest thing.

I completely agree with the above comments on Hibino's large melons. They keep distracting me from the plot of the episode, and it's not like they're even trying to be fan service! What the hell!?

(Although they also do look slightly disproportionate or just... awkwardly drawn or something. Then again, this is what I get for starting to over-analyze their size and proportions by staring at them so much... and I'm a DFC kind of person. )

Edit: the odd shape of her breasts make me wonder if she has some kind of special power involving them, maybe shooting a laser beam (H-H-Hibino Beamu!), that makes them jiggle just a little bit for that added '...and suddenly fanservice!'.

First episode is average on all counts. I do like that the protagonist is out of high school though.

I had that feel too. We're going to be light-hearted and then get real serious. The question is how well will it flow.

Those breasts are pretty bad. When she got up in the restaurant I was like "Whaaaaaaat!?" and just face palmed.

Now that was a pretty uninspiring first episode.

First we get a very weird intro.
Next comes a crappy, awkward OP. Bleh.
Then the story telling is rather haphazardly, with many abrupt changes and no explanations offered.

The cast ist pretty lame:
- a random loli
- a random oba-san with huge, oddly shaped melon tits
- a random student who escaped from his tiny village to the big town
- a random psychopath who is all talk and doesn't do anything before he allows the loli to simply blast him away, just to easily escape again later. What what the point of that, anyway?

In short, I find myself not in the least interested in any of those, much less feeling sympathy or liking for any of them, they're just too bland.

ED wasn't half-bad. The muppet preview at the end though really did freak me out

I wonder if I should still bother with the second episode.

Were you expecting the show to reveal the entire story and character motivations on the first bloody episode? Also the op is cool and its not a school setting, that is always a plus.

I actually liked the OP... heck, it's probably the only thing I liked, considering I generally like the artist's songs. But apart from that, not sold on the show, as it lacks 'the hook' in the first episode (kinda like Blood-C).

2 things that currently turn me off:
1. kyonyuu
2. bgm during Utao's summoning

the gore looks good though. not that I'm a gore-fan or anything, just that it looks like some serious stuff is cooking.

Am I the only one who went "wow, those are some big boobs and then more or less ignored them for the rest of the episode?

No, I don't know why people are so fixated on them lol. It wasn't like they were playing them hugely for fanservice like HOTD or anything.

Can't believe so many people are hung up on the girl's breasts. Compared to what we've all seen in other anime, they're still relatively minor.

I'm pretty sure if this was some ecchi show, there'd be far less hang-up about the boobs. Granted, it may very well actually be an ecchi show that just hasn't delved into it head-first so to speak, but I think the reason why so many people have issues with the huge boobs is because it doesn't seem like it's a pandering ecchi show, so one has to wonder why they decided to put such huge knockers on that poor girl.

That said, I won't be surprised if it does turn into an ecchi/harem show. We're already setting ourselves up here with living with the girl with the huge knockers and a little chibi girl, but I'm holding out hope that that won't be the case, and the huge boobs are simply a case of the director (mistakenly in my eyes, though I have no idea just how fixated the Japanese anime market is on big boobs) thinking he needs to throw in huge boobs as a concession to maintain enough viewers to keep the advertisers interested.

Pretty much. The reason for that is that they are so out of place. I mean she's the only women in the show with that size. Had this been HOTD or something, no one would say anything since it par for the course.

I mean, if they had other women in the show with the same cup size, she wouldn't have looked so out of place. Or like she has a vendetta with bras or something

Otherwise, it was an okay episode. Just with some really strange things to include in it.

Another problem is that her waist is way too small compared to her bust. Makes her melons stand out even more.
