OP's not bad.

Lucia has very good taste in fashion(& the screenshots during the break with the mirror).

Eye-patch girls FTW!!!

And Sumire(Berserk) =

Hmm... feeling a little underwhelmed by Ep01. There was a noticeable lack of tension in the fights, and I never really felt any sort of worry for the main characters' well-being.

I also get the feeling that they tried to cramp too much information into the first episode. Is this season slated for 13 episodes only? I would understand the information-dump if that was the case, but if VVV is a 2-cour anime series, then it seems counter-productive to squeeze in so many details that a lot of it will just fly over the audience's heads.

Not really feeling the urge to keep track of this series, but I will wait and see Ep02 before considering any further decisions.

Cheers.

Decent episode, although a little on the predictable side with the "hidden power" and stuff. I'm watching this because 1) it was advertised after Rozen Maiden: Ouverture, and 2) the past season we haven't seen a lot of fansubs lately... I'm also not a fan of the character designs - it's leaning in the way of Strawberry Panic (of which I only watched 3 episodes of XD), but otherwise tolerable.

This series will keep me from getting bored.

It's OK IMO. What will probably keep me watching it the evil Sumire aspect.
Spoiler for Episode 1:


Someone / some people mentioned it and yeah there's a sense of yuri. Sumire's school uniform there seems to resemble uniforms I see a lot in yuri anime from my perspective, too (I think).

I just watched episode 1, and I rather enjoyed it.

I don't know if someone already mentioned this, but in the first scene Sumire looks exactly like Adell from Disgaea 2, except for the green tie. lol

I'm happy with the first episode, it does the job. Nanase Hikaru as yet again made another epic musical score - back when i first heard that the series would be adapted into a anime, i knew for a fact they'd go with using her for the music.

From just looking at this series, i get lil' feelings from different stories/shows in the past. The main one for me had to be the whole shop idea - not 100% like xxxHolic, though even only a select few people being able to see Virus' reminds me of Watanuki. This is not a bad thing - its just something that'll always be on my mind when watching this.

Sumire looks so scary when she's in berserk mode. Even Lucia feels uneasy around her (no doubt though). So she gets exhausted after using that golden eye of hers eh? The ED reminds me of Shakugan no Shana's because of the illustration. The OP reminds me of Rozen Maiden's. And what's with the blush line around Sumire's face?

I find this series to be really intriguing so far. I'm still not sure about the point of certain things, but then again we're only on episode 2. I did notice both Sumire and Lucia have tattoos on their upper arm. I'm not sure yet what purpose those serve, since I think it was Sumire's that changed during a sequence.

I liked the ED song, and I adore Lucia.
So I'll certainly keep watching, for a while at least.

And, to quote someone at Shoujoai forums: It's Hazumu-kun on crack.

I'm loving the ED music. <3 I find that mellow/dramatic/sad etc ending themes usually go better than something happy, especially if the anime ends in a sad way.

I haven't watched Death Note, but I watched the OP just now to see what you were talking about. (The OP music is nice btw) but the only resemblance I noticed was when that white cross appears on a black background with the anime title across it. I wasn't sure if that's what you meant.

i think the plot is more similiar to Busou Renkin, or so it seems from the plot summary provided by ANN.. Busou Renkin may be good for laffs but i find the slapstick comedy a little overdone.. on the other hand, VVV seems to have rather nice graphics~ ep2 was aired on 18th, should expect it to be subbed very soon! cant wait!!

*btw, i dl ep 1 but i cant seem to open the file despite trying various player programmes..! the title of the anime seems to curse the file huh, a virus?! had to watch ep1 on youtube.. dling ep1 all over again, hope it'll turn out rite.. anyone had the same experience as me with opening the file??
