Ok, now that some decent subs came out I finally got around to watch it. First, the good points:


-MC is very likable
-Lots of movement/variety during the fight scenes.
-Character variety is insane. We got slimes, angels, ninjas, incubus, dragon mechas. Everything is packed here.
-The OST is surprisingly good, I already like +3 bgm plus the angel girls fight theme.

Now the bad:

-Basic setting/storyline seems kinda convulted and this first episode didn't really explain a lot because most of the time was spent in the mock battle.
-Both main leads got quite low amount of screentime, especially P-01s.

Watched it twice cause I liked it that much. Tori did not disappoint at all. I knew I would like him the moment I saw DAT GRIN and his voice actor. Feels like a while since I've heard FukuJun voice a character like this and boy does it feel good. First episode did well to introduce the humungous cast and their quirks but unfortunately not their names . Those'll take a while to remember so it's good that their designs range from distinct to unforgettably unique. The battles were really entertaining to watch and well produced plus the awesome music makes them even better. Intoductions out of the way, I'm waiting for Tori to approach P-01s and get the story going.

Oh, and I absolutely love Chiwa Saito as Kimi-nee. Love her performance so much.

I think the production team is taking approach to the character, character traits and their fighting skills for episode one

it's like introduction to the main cast (musashi's students)

The iDOLM@STER episode 1 took similar approach and explain everything later

If you want a few hilarious translations, go to the official site: http://genesis-horizon.net/

Run the characters page through Google Translate.

Here are some examples that had me laughing:

* Oh Heidi Squatting Valor - The blonde girl who innocently asked if Tori's touching the Sensei's boobies counted as a successful attack.

* Unite internal cross-point - The ninja with his orange facemask and baseball cap.

* Black beast of algae - A black version of the red slime we saw in episode one.

Google Translate does get a few names right (at least, I assume so):

* Makiko Oriotorai - The awesome Sensei.

Haha. Mildly amusing opener like Maji de Watashi. Looks like it could be a worthy comedy, but I was thinking people were talking too much and some of those character designs ... (boobs)

However, jelly and bomberman-lookalike FTW!

eye candy is just soooo heavy here. Visual overload!

Torri's design is strange... a guy with long earrings, trailing shinny threads from his shoulders? (kind of girlish). Don't really like his face either.

the fights are pretty good though. Quite high tech for a world that is supposed to be in a devastated state!

what's Horizon? is that a place or the name a person?

and is this "ship" an exiled state as said? what does that mean? who the people living there, and why do they have to leave once they reach 18? confusing....

Horizon - Episode 1

Horizon is the most audacious show of the season, with awesome artwork, characters, plot, writing and direction. Without a doubt, it's been a long time since we've seen such a diverse cast, with subtle characterization that hints at incredible depth and intricate relationships and even sensitive interactions. The only character that drags the ensemble down a bit is the teacher, but her character design reminds me enough of the the rest of the cast that I think we're still in safe hands.

It's also really nice that the creators decided to throw in a large amount of exposition right at the beginning of the episode. This allowed them to easily integrate the characters and the action directly with the larger storyline. Speaking of the plot, it's very interesting that they decided to move a big chunk of exposition into the end credits. This is an unusual move, but it lets them put in extra information without interrupting the delicate flow of the episode. It also means that they have the utmost confidence in their ability to draw the audience into the huge world of Horizion.

All in all, this is an episode that we're going to rarely see. Most creators would shy away from this approach in fear of crashing and burning from the sheer weight of the work, but these guys are made of sterner stuff. This may well be the most amazing show of the season.

Normally, I wouldn't give a show that visually screams "Infinite Stratos" vibes so much as a glance, but Sensei and Aoi have me a believer in this show producing laughs. As long as it sticks to the humor and doesn't collapse under the weight of the apparently very complicated source material, I think it'll do just fine, gag-inducing boobs aside.

Also, lol @ "..stick your #$*# in the power socket and die!"
That sounds horrific to me. Better rewatch that ep1 over & over again.

Doesnt we all live in a world with games where slimes, demons, dragons and all sorts of magic are fictional commoplaces? Mecha-musume series have girls demi-naked with robotics parts attached... Megaman and Black Rock Shooters produce cannons from his arms... Magical Madoka girls go trough paralell dimension at the snap of their fingers, mad scientists travel trough time via sms... So why this show can be so confusing for so many people?
