Ishihara knew some people would get the wrong impression and tried to prevent that. He also knew no matter what he did, people would still try to think of it as an action show.

(laughs) But to make sure the audience didn't get confused that it's a type of alternate world battle show, we made sure to show the characters over-acting and included a lot of gag scenes too. The anime itself is an entertaining and enjoyable romantic comedy. I think after seeing the first episode, people will say "What the?! This is just an ordinary romantic comedy!" (laughs)

To anyone, especially a casual, taking the first pv in the face value, it would be easy to mistake it for urban fantasy show. But to anyone familiar with the codes of the genre, it is not hard to realize that something is off, especially the contrast between the action scenes and the more mundaneones. To me, it took that small bit at the train station to realize it, and remembering where I have seen the Chu2 term before, that was a frequent accusation thrown at Kinoko Nasu. And then I compared it to recent example in anime, like steins gate and haganai, and that gag in Nichibros. Because it's only recently that I found out the term.

"Like K-ON!", to me, implies a lot of things, and not just the superficial ones. And yet the term is thrown around a lot. There are plenty of other series to use as a baseline.

I suppose I should clarify myself then. When I said "like K-ON", the art style is very similar to that show in terms how 'moefied' the characters are, particular the females. Of course, this is soley my own opinion so take it FWIW.

Just look how theatrical the characters are at some points where they're doing poses and the like. It's either a fantasy or the cheesiest action show ever . Furthermore there's a distinct comedic feel to it throughout the PV.

The PV brought me memories of Suzumiya ep 00. Where something about the whole "Battle waitress from the future fight over an esper against an alien" setup felt so much like a clusterfuck that it could only be a parody, or else.

I'll surely check this one out.
The novel is superb, then I'm sure the anime is gonna be good.

Event is over. Not only did they show the first TWO episodes, but Fukuyama (Yuuta) and Ishihara (Supervisor) also came on as surprise guests. A lot of people felt the first episode was introductory, but the second episode was very entertaining. A couple of people have mentioned it's K-On! level of entertaining, which bodes well for its reception amongst Japanese fans. (This does not say that the shows are similar, but that the reception of how entertaining it is will be similar) A radio show will start in October and it will be streamed on JP Nico.

In brief, here's the main points from today:
As usual KyoAni image quality
Color palette is reminiscent of Clannad - provides a nice feeling
Battle scenes are abrupt, but very cool
Very authentic to Otsu's actual locations
The gags are entertaining
Everyone's so cute
Anime-original characters start appearing in episode 2
Episode 2 differs a lot from the novel.

Last random fact: No one can comment on the OP/ED we'll be seeing as KyoAni made another set for the event screenings. Hopefully they'll be included on the BDs. (Edit: the OP was the "Promotional OP" posted earlier in the thread)

Edit: Fukuyama, the Dark Flame Master:

Gags are entertaining - Do I take this as what a stereotypical japanese person finds entertaining (i.e. something a westerner doesn't find entertaining) or as more 'globalized humor'-tier entertaining?

Battles are abrupt but cool - This is so ambiguous it hurts. I hope they're at least unique enough, can't say fights are Kyoani's strong point, but maybe they've improved a bit. I didn't really like Ishidate's fight in Clannad, but TSR fights by him and Kigami were pretty good, and some action cuts of Nichijou were rather interesting. Whatever, I'll just have to wait.

First episode is introductory - I'm bracing for "boring", "Kyoani has fallen", "they refused LB for this" and other forms of generic bashing.

Guess I'll post again.

The apparent staff for the two episodes goes like this:

Episode 1: Tatsuya Ishihara and Kazumi Ikeda
Episode 2: Ishihara, Yoshiji Kigami and Chiyoko Ueno

Kigami was sakkan for 2, or did he just do Key animation?

Kigami was Enshuu, so he played a pretty big role in that episode. Not surprising Ishihara would just do storyboards for this one.

Oh okay. I was already getting excited to see Kigami doing animation direction again, that's sad.

Anyway, 2 will probably be a nice sakuga ep, I'm looking forward to it.

Thanks for the detail overview. So we will be getting a different OP when Chu2Koi starts airing on TV?

Yes. They have made that very clear. We will get the song that is in the background of the CM. They likely wanted to keep the real OP a surprise and made the other one just for these events.
