That's a good example but I've yet to see any real harem-ish things going on in this series so its hard for me actually call harem on this series.

There are no words to describe Aoi Toori to me...well, maybe one. Legend.

Part of me wonders whether that'd be me if all inhibitions went out of the window and down the motorway. *ahem*.


Rewatched Episode 1 and seen Episode 2 now - really intrigued as to why P-01s is singing prior to the OP in both (not that I'm confused or anything - just curious). Either way, it's great that Minori Chihara sings both that and the OP - both great numbers in their own right (was a little worried when I heard Terminated at first, but now I love it!).

Heck, P-01s intrigues me regardless - can't remember a thing of her past and apparently resembles 'Horizon'. I'm honestly not sure whether she's a doll/robot that just resembles Horizon (she's as emotional as a brick, I'll give her that - I know Mazazumi says she is a doll, but I'm honestly not sure anymore) or that (never seen the source material, so wouldn't know) she is in fact Horizon (and her 'death' was faked).

In other news, Mitsotsudaira has the weirdest hair in history (wouldn't be surprised if there were rockets coming out of those curls of hers) - not that it's a bad thing though. It rocks . Plus points for her (like Makiko Oriotorai - sensei) giving Toori what for when he elected to 'practice' on her (and he gets what he deserves, haha ).

Also, genuinely felt gutted for Mazazumi Honda...that's a cruel way to have your life screwed with (being dismissed so suddenly to be replaced by robots - just after agreeing to become a boy) . Looks like the notion that 'girls are lesser to boys' holds true here - though I must admit, the look suits her. Honestly couldn't imagine her with large ones (and quite frankly, Toori has the right idea - she's just a girl with a flat chest )

By the way, anyone else reckon Suzu Mukai (the 'teacher' in Ep 2) resembles an early Nodoka Miyazaki of Negima?! fame? Purple hair over the eyes, knowledgeable and very shy.

Last but not least... "Tonight's fireworks will be fun"...eh? Either Motonobu is having an evil moment, or it's a troll moment of utter win. Either way, bring on Ep 3!

You don't know how long I've waited for someone to say that.

Why can't you just be straight for all the other girls instead?

Come on Toori! You're not a legend until that happens! For that matter, the real test is doing that to your sister! Come on! By the way robots don't count *cough*

Yeah I don't think it's possible to have a harem when you also have a mecha dude, a big muscled shirtless dude and a racist caricature in your posse.

It almost seems like a rule now that if you have a mysterious female lead in your sci-fi/fantasy series she has to be a singer eh? I wonder if there actually is anything more to it.

Writers were macross fans? Though I think some other old shows also pulled heavily this theme.

They're what you call the "Wing-Men Group".

You never know when you'll need a she-dragon to be charmed.

Because apparently no guy can sing without looking like a douchebag (Shoujo Anime) or a psycho (DMC).

I mean sure, the suggestion came from her, but it's as plain as day: he didn't think of it

As the quote goes "pictures or it didn't happen!"

But I do think it's not hard to guess or even say that Toori's fascination with boobs probably came about cause of his sister and childhood friend, so very much possible

I've just come to the realization that in the event Toori did fondle his sister.... we'll never see because it would be censored *cough* lol *cough*

Didn't you say you have midterms or something? I myself missed a number of pages since ep 02 aired, I like to read posts here since I'm not a novel reader and there's sure to be non-spoilerific info here. I even keep that character chart handy

If this is picked up by Crunchyroll, I guess that lowers my waiting time.

I'm a foreigner into this series and whether is based on a manga, series of light nivels, visual games, or PC games that's beyond my scope of knowledge that so far I possess about Kyoukai Senjou no Horizon.

I only know that main male protagonist by the name of Tori Aoi is voiced by FukuJun, and the story involves that Earth history has been imperially messed up with because the rebooting of the historical timelines went overwritten with each other, ending with the Far East states reliving a strange combination of history events between "Warring States" of Japan's Sengoku Jidai era and Europe's "Hundred Years War" era from the 15th century C.E.

I don't know how I am taking the first episode after watching it. The design for the characters, particularly the girls (most of them happen to be busty) reminds me of characters seen in Sora no Otoshimono. I shouldn't get carried by the first impressions with all that wild-goose chase the teacher forced everyone to undergo.

The only thing remarkably good that put that teacher in her place temporarily was Tori making his entrance and explaining his reasons for graduating from purchasing and playing limited collector's edition ero games much to the teacher's embarrasement and frustration, and Tori going on declaring openly in front of everyone that he's going to move on from Horizon's memory by declaring his love to the teacher?

BTW, Tori actually succeeded at landing a hit on the teacher, although it was mostly groping her treasures, and didn't ninja dude with the baseball cap ask that if they grope the teacher wouldn't have their points deducted?

O____O, how does that happen? Yes, you're correct about the ninja and the question, and the teacher basically said you're dead if you try any of those .

Yeah I did =(, but I went back to read most of the posts (at least I thought I did).

I am really unfamiliar with the how sim/latecasts work, I've heard CR can be really late with translations too. If anyone can confirm when CR's cast would be that would be awesome.

On a totally unrelated note, a Chinese gamer (虚空宇宙) modded Nobunaga's Ambition (the 12th one) with Horizon characters. I thought it's pretty funny (since he changed some of the dialogues too to match the novel) and well made.

Spoiler for Random laughs:

Crunchyroll picked it up? When do they air it? You have proof/announcement?

Also, I am really liking this series, if only for the characters, and just how entertaining /a/ is over this series. The plot I can understand, though I dislike how it's presented. I do want to tell others when they're looking at it not to get overblown by the plot, either.
