Just watched the first episode and I'm so following this. The main girl is totally cute and wacky but truly works out for me. This series will, no, it's definitely going to be awesome!

about the episode itself, I often feel embarassed for the character so this episode was hard as hell to watch , but it still feel enjoyable.
The OP is going to have a negative effect on the worldwide supply of aspirin, judging by how many I myself had to take after seeing it.

KyoAni has been leaning SHAFT in more ways than OP/ED for some time, now. *mini angel Chitanda zerg rush*

Nichijou did a massive SHAFT styling for their OPs (originally the claim was they out SHAFTed SHAFT).

Hahah, that's a funny comparison, and first I've heard of it. Let's see...

Obsession with aliens, espers and time travelers, i.e. superpowers and the occult? check.

Goes around blurting out stuff about said things? Well if I heard that introduction on the first day of school, I'd certainly think that girl was ill, so check.

Hmm it's all starting to make sense why they'd choose to animate something they labeled as a "runner" up two years later now. So that's why Kyoani was interested in animating this...


My thoughts after watching the first eps: I've been fading Kyoani ever since Clannad finished and they've acted like they were too "busy" to associate with Key anymore. I thought this homegrown adapation of one of their "runner ups" for their Kyoani award was going to be pretty iffy, I mean they didn't have any confidence in it in the first place to give it a grand prize, they basically slapped everyone who entered in the face in their first contest by saying no entries were good enough to be worth giving the grand prize to I.E. all the entries sucked. Also all the talk from the English-speaking side about superpowers and how cool it was, had me laughing at all the gaijin chuunis who had no idea what they were actually getting into! "What the hell is this moe crap??? Why are they making fun of me"

Despite my expectations and my desire to troll this show, Ishihara-sama showed why he's so awesome. He manages to turn something with a rather run-of-the-mill premise into something interesting and fresh. That seizure inducing OP pretty much told me this show was going to be worth watching. The main heroine was a lot cuter than I expected, so much more so than she was in the "unaired character introduction". I never thought chuunibyou could be so moe.

For the chuunis I hope you have some self deprecating humor within you, you guys are going to need it if you're going to persist with this one, especially with how anti-chuuni the main character seems to be.

Looks like we're in for a moe-fest, buckle your seatbelts, we're in for a ride!

My comments on the recently watched Ep 1:

* IMO Great OP (Schpro...whatever it was called.)
* Great BGM
* Oh God, I can relate to chu2byo for some reason.
* I love these scenes... like Nichijou, they keep on exaggerating the simple mundane scenarios...
* I'm already sold at the first episode... just like K-ON! ... is this... a sign?!
* Ah... so many .gif-able goodies... I shall make one for another forum, I guess. XD
* Also, Another senses tinging....and Lucky Star.... gah...
* The use of galakta as junk reminds me of cosMo-P's series, where galakta sounds cool because it sounds "galactic".
* I already said that ZAQ would sell as a band right? IMO great ED. (like Milky Holmes.)

This could end up a blend of K-On! and Nichijou. I wonder why that might happen...

What we also need is to wait for an existence of a club room with wacky members or so and a weird name then we'll have the complete set.

ZAQ is the single female singer of the OP and promotional OP/ED songs. She also composed/arranged/wrote lyrics for all four OP/ED songs. If you're referring to the ED vocalists, it's the four seiyuu.

I got to admit, I was pretty amused when Rikka used her wheeled shoes to pretend to fly back from recoil.

Great animation from KyoAni as always.

I thought it was great, too. Active, fun, and completely goes with the beat of the song. I rewatched it a few times trying to pick out everything that was going on in the background.

Do you mean Rikka or Yuuta? For me, it's a little of both, though it's all fun.

I left most of that kind of behaviour behind years ago, though I'm not too prooud to admit that I still make gestures at automatic doors.
