Some have thought of it but Black Rock Shooter came first before Sucker Punch. But the movie sucked.

Argghhhhhhhh.... fuck it. I know for a fact that this is going to suck - big time at that - but fuck it. I can't keep myself away any longer. Gonna watch it now. Hopefully it won't make me kill myself. Fingers crossed.

Pretty disappointing, especially the animation. I'll keep watching anyway; have nothing to lose.

Needs some avatars, though.

^ Indeed, I was waiting at least something close to steins;gate-level art and character designs (also by Huke) and despite having to keep up a high standard for twice and more episodes did a very good job, but this is so substandard... I hope it gets better, but that's very unlikely

Plot also worries me with the NoitaminA stupidity of 11 episodes!

11 episodes? I thought this was 8.

8 Why? WTF?!?!?

eDIT: My bad, it is indeed only 8 episodes... at least they could make an OVA or movie, in total this will last 150-160 minutes, so character development... let's forget it; plot... considering the episode's pace, does not look good. Anyway, I hope I am proved wrong, maybe the crappy art and that accursed zone got me in the misery mood

I thought this was confirmed to be 8 episodes. That's why Thermae Romae filled the same timeslot earlier this season.

Personally I would actually prefer more Thermae Romae than what we're getting out of BRS right now.

lol. I frankly don't get it either. Sure, the animation/character design is not very impressive but everything else is pretty brilliant. You've got the yuri, the melodrama, the bizarre and frightening/poetic otherworld and fuckawesome Black Rock Shooter action. I will be overjoyed to get 8 straight episodes of this, too bad for anyone who isn't able to enjoy it.

Um..what the fuck? I actually liked it? :0

Um..what the fuck again? I actually teared up at the end of the episode with Mato asking Yomi to go to the festival? Man, something's wrong with me today.

Btw, I LOVE Kohata. She reminds me of mah Hibiki from iDOLM@STER. :3

Heh. I agree, a full length properly animated Thermae Romae would be the business!

As far as BRS is concerned, a lot of it is going to come from how they tie together the two worlds. I'm sticking to my "it's all in her head" theory until shown otherwise!

Well, to be honest Thermae Romae was the funniest series of the season for me, so for me it is kind of unfair to say a black and white statement about BRS after only one ep.

All that aside ... after ep 1 I really don't know what to say. As one who has not seen the OVA much of what was presented in ep 1 did not really give me a clear "image" of what the series is going to be about. I suppose that is not especially good, but neither is it especially bad, I think? Anyhoo, I will give it another ep or two and see if a clearer image comes across....

Not really, but it is soon to judge... I for one expected a lot more, that does not mean that this is bad in any way, just that it did not mean the hype fanboys generated.

Unfortunately the anime character design will always have to compare with Huke's original art, and there is no way to fund such level of animation even for 3 minutes in each of the 8 episodes.

DxD is also enjoyable, that does not make it good

lol, actually, all I've seen has been negative hype, both in general and in this thread. I've yet to run into any fanboys who were actually approaching this with high expectations. I myself, didn't have particularly high expectations for this anime, but the first episode delivered in an unexpected way that at least some of us found completely satisfying.

Quote:

You don't need to deny this, you know...from the background of the OVA, to even the manga, and the maintained middle school setting, it is pretty clear that one of the principle appeals of this series is gonna be some awesome "soft" yuri pandering.

Quote:

The point of melodrama is to be overblown. I personally find it delicious in combination with yuri.

Quote:

They key word for me is "poetic", not "surreal". Madoka Magica's witch barriers did great in creating a foreign ambiance supporting the intellectual/thriller side of that series, but Black Rock Shooter's backgrounds are pretty much mindblowingly/metaphorically gorgeous in supporting the drama and cinematics of this one.

Quote:

If they keep up the level of what they had in the first episode I will be more than satisfied.

Quote:

Black Rock Shooter looks to be satisfying to me on an emotional level, which is more than I can say of most any other pure fanservice series. I'm hardly claiming it's gonna be any sort of masterpiece but I think it's clearly delivering to its target audience.

About the hype, it's just the impression I got from blogs, IRC, RL-friends talking about the coming TV... but never really gotten interested enough to pay close attention.

Also "soft" yuri IS NOT yuri, hardly shoujo ai, Marimite is a good dividing line where 99% it's friendship, but there were exception when things progressed beyond that.

Anyway, basically Sol, we are obviously looking for different things in this one

Haha, I watched (read) through all (of what's currently available) of Marimite for Noriko x Shimako, and that was good enough for me (of course, the quality of the rest of the series doesn't hurt). Subtext works just as well as explicit sexuality for me 'cause what I'm really after in yuri is the romanticism. The poetic aspects alone in this series make Mato and Yomi's relationship clearly romantic, if not sexual. There's really no doubt at all that what this series (just like the OVA before it) is aiming for is the yuri fans.
