Premise and character introductions seem pretty generic so far. Not sure how much flash or action the series will have at this point.

From the last few minutes, looks like a bunch of gang wars for resources with people recruiting people with powers to play for them.

True. True. Don't worry I noticed them too. It's just that the first thing I looked at was the MC. The female characters were diverse and interesting. The bunny girl plays the straight man, the ojou-sama is arrogant, and the, well, the other one is very quiet. The action scenes are well done and fast-paces. The opening and background music were very good. I wonder how good the ending is. The only bad thing is that there are only twelve episode titles. In other words, only 12 episodes in the series. I hope there's more or maybe a second season.

Bleh. The boy needs limits. He's too strong for the beginning. He annoys me. Probably wouldn't be as much of a problem if the people he was being a delinquent against were more deserving, but the lady blue, pink, Black Rabbit seems like nice enough people that I cannot approve of him picking on her.

Besides, still too strong. Hax! One kid can do mind control, one kid can talk to animals, and one kid can pretty much walk through anything and beat every challenge because he's freaking superman. He's obviously going to dominate the physical challenges. Anything that can be won with strength, speed, reflexes, and/or memory, including with unexpected applications like that card game. I'm afraid the girls are going to seem unnecessary with him around, and that would irritate me greatly, because I like them far better.

But enough about him. I'm curious... the place that You-chan (adding the honorific to her name to avoid confusion) came from looked somewhat otherworldly to me. I wonder if she's actually from Earth?

So I'm guessing not a lot of people are fond of the male version of Kurokami Medaka(in terms of strength at least.)

I'm sure the author will introduce limits soon enough. It'd be no fun otherwise.

Medaka at least had her superhuman skills balanced by a superhuman social awkwardness. Like I said, I don't have too much of a problem with him yet, and the second episode may very well address the issue.

True delinquents aren't suppose to pick and choose who to be nice to

He's got a sharp tongue but never once was he being a prick- He's a smartass but not a total asshole

It can't be helped when he was easily the most flashy character in this episode.

Izayoi's benefactor is clearly Dante All we need is the enemies to constantly ask after they got their asses kicked-

"Y-You! You're not human are you?!"

I'm just speaking up against more of a general trend... and maybe a little prematurely, I'll admit. I know I have a problem with that. But I do stand by my statement that the series set up enough concepts in its first episode that discussion can go in any direction.

You can bring a horse to water, but you can't force it to drink.

With how hectic and kind of bland the first episode is set up it's premise, I won't be surprise if most people wouldn't think much about it until it becomes more relevant; it's really not the most engaging part of the episode.

Well I like him, although it seems too powerful and I have no doubt he is. At first glance and by seeing his little flashback during the first episode, he seems like someone a little weak in the emotional side by something in his past. It seems there are a lot of other Gods and demons who could have another kind of troublesome abilitys. Which could balance their power.

It seems the three of them have control over their gifts, and are confident and know what can they do. I look forward to the next episodes.

That was a decently fun episode. I rather like the characters introduced so far. Considering this is apparently 10 episodes, I'm not going to ask for much from this as long as it doesn't try to bite off more than it can chew. Maybe some more Black Rabbit bullying by the trio. That was amusing.

I shall give this another episode or two to see if it sounds more interesting when we find out more about the setting, but I was amused when the cat started chatting up the waitress.

What makes you say that? I don't see the connection between his gift and Dante.

Teen Gilgamesh, Gender-bent Lelouch, and Nagato Yuki get summoned by a bunny girl to a magical world, where they proceed to bully the bunny girl and troll everyone else.

I think it's the personalities that make this anime interesting. If we had your typical male lead with tsundere/shy females it'd be really boring. However we get 3 troll-tastic personality types so I'm hoping to see more hilarious antics from them.

Looks like our MC's gift is called Code: Unknown.

An article by ANN tells us about the characters. It's here if you can't find it.

Sorry, I posted that before I read his ability

I was basing it on his cocky and joker personality.

Wait. That post is even more confusing. What Dante were you talking about? The only one I know is the one from Dante's Inferno.
