Still, though, it is pretty much exactly true that what kind of character Aoi Toori will be is the principle point keeping me interested in this anime. I can't tell right now whether I should just jump straight onto the bandwagon, or be worried about his sure to be exaggerated popularity.
I really don't think he's "that" similar to Kumagawa, not close enough to dull an effect Kumagawa would have when unleashed... which would happen to be never more than likely.. Aikawa Jun and Kumagawa Misogi... the hidden animated secret weapons of Nisio

As for Toori just jump on board!

My only problem is, they should not try to introduce those characters/concepts into the dialogue, as it does not sounds nature at all. Should just have a full minute at the start of each episode doing that, then let the class briefly mention only

Nothing standout yet, but i should honorably mention the chibi shrine Gods (that looks like from Miyabi's design), the daigo-like slime, the yuri angel pair, the robot. Ah yeah, we have Miyuki Sawashiro, one of my most favourite seiyuu as well. If anyone has already read the novel; has her character completely transgendered yet, or just removed her chest? Would she enter a romance relationship, and with a boy or a girl? (remember to use the spoiler tag through or send me an PM)
only her chest, and before they had a chance to attach the 'lower part', she and her family was expelled from Mikawa

I think it was clearly mentioned in eps 2 so it isn't a spoiler at all

Wow, the summary for this episode was one of the LONGEST synopses I've ever typed. @_@

Well, the good thing with this episode is that we now know how the Harmonic Divine States crashed and burned with the Divine States: someone messed with the devices that support the Harmonic States, and the only people they know who are capable of doing such a thing are the surface-people.

Say guys who are familiar with the novel thus far. Anyone seen anything about the Mughal Empire (famous for Shah Jahan and Taj Mahal) in there?

This is important, because I have... plans.

Think there's an India faction, but don't think Mughal's directly involved ... yet. Go to light novel thread and ask Allen.

I really wish the entire school has more variation than just a human. . . .
I'd always thought that's just the anime being lazy, besides I actually thought it's hilarious when they showed the other class being completely normal.

Oh yeah, can someone who already read the LN for at least 2 or 3 chapter so far PM me for the spoiler? I`m little bit curious about their plot and I need it for my satisfaction I think

I guess in this era that's almost high praise.

This is kind of the key reason I'm always telling people not to immediately listen to the internet when it comes to Sunrise's weird/crazy ambitious projects. Usually they're just so far off base as to not even be in the same stadium. The complaint I see the most is that there's too many characters and too much intertwining plot line and backstory to keep track of. I'll just say this to anyone who is listening. If the number of characters featured in the chart above is too many characters (only 3 of them are actually major ones so far), than Horizon In The Middle of Nowhere isn't meant for you.

I mean all I had to do was ask some people to clear up a couple things and that's all it took for me to understand everything that's been presented so far. I should hope that's not too much of an effort to ask of any viewer in order to enjoy a show. Also, always read the supplementary material like the character charts that Sunrise presents for their large cast shows. It's there for a reason.

Could it be ppl on the net tend to loose his otherwise keen sense and believe anything others say just because its written there? I remember Geass having a cast as big as this one and nobody complaining about it. Well, you just dont question CLAMP, right?

I'm pretty sure Geass didn't slam all of them into you at once, then ramp up to 27533 by the end of the first season. Ie just the way I like it.

I don't think the huge amount of cast is the issue. The initial main beef is big boobs = fanservice in most people's mind, and Toori's rather stupid nature and "derpy" character design. The entire initial presentation just comes off as gimmicky and pretentious especially with a "ridiculous" plot.

This is why we shouldn't fault any of the people who have bad initial impression. Most people really just watched it and don't really do any research. I convinced quite a number of people to watch the series since I basically tell them I would enjoy this series even if everyone hates it and is definitely not fanservice based (I'm 100% honest about this). Most of them would come back and tell me Episode 1 is "watchable", and they would stick around for a couple more and see if the series go anywhere (which is my goal anyway, just have them give this a chance and not to dismiss this immediately as just trashy fanservice). After Episode 2 air they all just went this is pretty decent, which is great because I get more people to discuss the series with .
