Interesting first episode. Watched it without knowing anything about it.

OP is kind of bad. I like the standard character pose and stills with intro names on the side style of OP better.

Main girl is fun to watch, main guy's reactions is also reasonable. I do love all the comedic violence with all the head smacking about. Laughed at all those scenes. Also like the designs of the school uniforms. I'm not blown away by the first episode, but its enjoyable enough atm to keep watching for me.

Huh. I expected more actual supernatural stuff from the promo videos. I was sadly mistaken.

The OP Screamed Harem.

But after watching the first episode, I must admit that I find this a rather entertaining and amusing anime.

Of course, you could argue that Yuuta's behavior is quite rude, but I think it's somewhat understandable.

Still, the first Five Minutes screamed Harem, until Yuuta reached the classroom.

Lol Rikka is so funny. Hope Yuuta regresses back into Dark Flame Mater for even more hijinks.

I glad it doesn't seem to have any.

Didn't like how in Denpa Onna, it was all regular, then at the end, there's like a "okay, maaayyyybbbeee there's something going on" and it just seems so out of place.

Thinking back on it now I had "eight-grader syndrome."
-super vision
-unmatched strength
-The mind thinking 10x faster then others
-Pride incarnate in human form
-My overly exaggerated ancestors accomplishments and how it boiled down to who I was

I still retain some of the qualities but they're not as open as they were before, honestly my past was that embarrassing. I like to know how this anime unfolds, got some hilarious laughs out of it.

Aha, makes sense I suppose, doesn't stop it from being any less annoying though.

Apart from that it was a fun and enjoyable start with the usual visual polish I've come to expect from Kyoani.

Strangely... the ED kinda reminded me of Muteki Kanban Musume's OP, with the voice-dragging and certain chords. Sort of appropriate too, since that OP is about self-imagined delusions too.

Hmm...

NOOOO MY FUTURE AVATARRRRR!!! XDD

Anyway, nice OP, even if it's seizure-ish, and ED reminds me of Milky Holmes. Just doing the band album.... it would sell!

Unfortunately, I can't give a review of ep 1 just yet.

Gonna try make sure to watch each new episode in the weekend. That way it gives me a more nostalgic feel of Nichijou's TV run.

The four seiyuu really enjoy the show. They're planning on making their own PV for the ED song, so I imagine they wouldn't mind working on an another single or album.

ronelm2000 wanted this, so I guess this is his. I guess I gotta hand it to KyoAni, that fit perfectly into the avatar size, maybe they were thinking about us, like "those guys at Animesuki like to make avatars, let's make it a perfect square x2"

For now I can't either, but I was drawn to this series this morning after reading a comment that this series is "about a delusional loli and the guy that feels bad for her". Since I'm delusional I mean since I'm into delusional loli's, am I in the right place?

Ooh this looks like it'll be a entertaining show to watch. I love it when Jun Fukiyama is the lead male he's such a talented seiyu.

The first episode was rather charming and funny. The artwork was spot on and I hope it continues. Hearing Rikka spout all her imagination nonsense reminds of Kuroneko.

Heh, chu2byos are interesting "creatures", so to say. You can say that "delusions" are a way to keep them anchored to life, because else, you'd end up with a Haruhi who is essentially bored at life in general.

On an unrelated note, Haruhi can't be a chu2byo, can't she?

Haruhi seems to be more in the meglomania catagory. If anyone in that show is chu2byo, it would be Kyon...since we see everything from his point of view (more or less).

am I the only one here have no problem with the OP? I actually think it cute and rewatched it several time.

and is KyoAni learning Shaft on making OP/ED?

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.
