Worst anime to ever rip off a scene from Utena. Even the excessive fanservice was boring.

Ugh. For some reason, I intensely dislike this series... even though I've only seen one ep. That doesn't usually happen to me, but whatever. Everything... the characters, situations, general atmosphere... seem too overused, too "perfect".
"Oh, they found a girl who just happens to look like his 'perfect girl'. Oh, they're suddenly attacked for no discernable reason by a monster. Oh, he pledges to protect her, isn't that sweet. Oh, he transforms to some sort of super form! How unexepected and original."
Urgh. It all makes me want to vomit. I really don't like the main character either, which makes it worse... As a matter of fact, I don't like ANY of the characters, except maybe Ryou. It almost reminds me of a bad mary-sue fic.

I don't know... I know it's probably too early to judge, but that's just the impression I got. I might follow it, but it's not too likely. It just seems way too contrived.

I just saw the first episode and ... I was far from impressed. The characters seemd a little weird to me. The story was not too interesting and the animation was lacking imo. Guy sees light, finds naked chick, get attacked by worm , vows to protect her, transforms into superman and after a lame battle happy end..... how unoriginal can you get? I expected more from a gainax title ...

Well any anime deserves a couple of episodes before being dumped so I'll try a few more episodes but it better get interesting really fast ...

I think you have to give it some credit that the setup is *purposely* contrived in that manner - she's obviously some sort of alien or something who has targeted him (as he's got that special power but doesn't know it) and in order to manipulate him appears as his "dream girl" on purpose.

Clearly, it's going to change it's focus and turn it's cliche setup on it's end, as Gainax seems to like to do a lot.

However, that doesn't mean it will necessarily turn into a good series, if you will recall Mahoromatic. In fact, the general fanservicey tone of things seems to recall Mahoro more than any other series, and that's not a good thing.

I liked the first episode, but just listening to the dialogue I thought it was kinda lame. The dialogue, that is. I'm still undecided as to how it'll turn out, it could be good or bad, but I feel like it's still slightly leaning on bad.

seems there's a bit of a cliche build-up in the first episode, but I can find some common ground with the characters in the empathy department...or at least suspend disbelief. I hope this doesn't boil down to a monster-of-the-week special as I've always been one for character intricacies/ interactions, but maybe I'm jumping the gun here.

and the whole cousin thing- I have this feeling that no good can come of him catching her throwin down (the clothes) before the bath. One thing really left a bad taste in my mouth though: He ruined the stupid bike. I know, I know, its nothing at all, but that bugged me and I was distracted with it after it got rammed into the creature.

is that silly?

and yeah, a transformation that wasn't completely ridiculous...I did appreciate that, along with the intimation that this mystery girl may not be all that she seems.

Hehehe, and did you catch Mahoro's maid outfit?

Anyways, in terms of content the 2nd episode was meh. I think the first few episodes is mostly "character interactions". It may be too early, but I hope they get the plot moving.

I just don't understand the current trend with "chracter X backstory episode"...is the slow pace simply because they have more than 13 episodes to work with? Is it simply local audience tastes/ expectations?

<opinion here!> I noticed gunslinger girls had 13 eps and managed to really push the envelope with some of the characters- and they adhered to this new character every episode formula to some degree.
I could stand to see the frenetic pacing up front and a slow-down for fleshing out in the middle just to catch my breath... but listen to us, a bunch of snobs on the subject right <no insult intended>

this must be like arguing over the vanilla hints in a wine, or what influence the barrel's wood had on the flavour.

The points to get out of first two eps are this IMHO (which many seem to be overlooking):

Spoiler:


Hmm might be a few other points I'm missing atm, but those are some major ones to think about before saying its just crap.
