I'm guessing we haven't met this "Akari" yet she's probally the girl at the end of ep 2, and somewhere in the middle of ep 1 with the dark eyes and dark hair.

errr... Akari has red eyes and red hair... Hikari has green eyes and orange hair (except in her "evil mode" where her eyes and hair seem to turn red...)

This is my first post on Miniku-Utsuku... I love the music! It is incredible! I'm a sucker for forceful OP themes

Everyone's talking about Akari and Hikari's "light separation"... but did anyone pickup the fact that before the two "Lights" parted, for a brief second, they formed a Double-Helix?

Ah... these subtle drops of tiny hints it's all going to blow up at the end-- 間違いない .

Also, despite the "spellings" (romaji) differences both "Hikari " and "Akari" imply "Light."

Same VA's, similar char design, similar humor. There are plenty of similarities on the outside. I wont comment about the plot since its only been two eps but its hard not to think of the similarities between shikijo sensei and Jennifer Portman.

I'm really glad I never watched Mahoromatic so I can evaluate this show on it's own merits

I just watched EP2 last night. I don't think I am too impressed by this episode. EP1 is very good.

I did not watch complete Mahoromatics series, maybe half episodes here and there. It never caught my attension. So, I cannot really compare Konomini with Mahoromatics. However, I think lots of people will compare them because of the similarities in character design and CVs. I don't have a set expectation out of this series but I really hope it has good storyline. The beginning of this series is really good. Seems to me there will be some kind of dramatic events happen soon. If the EP3 is still like the EP2, I am going drop it.

I'm counting on the potential of this series--Gainax and all. Strangely, I've never watched anything Mahoro~, and don't plan to, at least until after this series finishes.

suires, are you really from Taipei? It's rather amazing to see such proficiency--unless of course, if you are one of the White businessmen crowding the FuShin Nan Lu Starbucks--from you. I was born and raised in GaoShiong(I abhor the official spelling--it's... wrong). Been back there a few times for various reasons, hated the pollution, but the best thing was still the accesiblility to all things anime-manga-games

Melazoma, thank you for your comment!
I will hide the rest. You do not have to read this if you don't want to. It is not spoiler just off topic.

People mentioned that our Tsukihime font was a bit hard to read so we went with whats on the release for Konomini... a basic, easy to read font that leechers shouldn't complain about :P

I don't know if this this is common knowledge among the translation community, but extensive research into visual disabilities (more than 10-years old now) at Virginia (UVa), Berkeley and Purdue, all indicate that a plain non-italic, non-serif font is the easiest to read.

episode 3 is quite... strange... Akari and Ryou somehow appear very very creepy to me... I think there's something wrong about them...
Spoiler:
it makes me worry about Ryou's mental state...

Good one. I couldn't get through that series, and I'm cuttin' loose from this one after 2 episodes. If this show ever grows up maybe it will decide whether it wants to be an action series or a harem anime - well, I guess that's not necessarily grown up...

In the meantime the writing is just not there - the show plays like an outline for something that could have been developed if anyone had cared. I was skeptical after the first episode but now I am just through. The scenes just kind of come along one after the other and nothing is set up properly. The scene right near the end of #2 with Hikari didn't pay off because the rest of the show was a lot of half-assed nonsense.

babbito2k, you completely summed up what I felt. I'm very disappointed and I'm dropping it even just after 2 eps... if I hear that it gets better maybe I'll watch it again, but if it only gets good at like ep 8 or something that's sad.

I don't know why they decided to animate this manga even... I thought Gainax could look out for better stories. (Oversimplifying and generalizing here!)

they didn't animate the manga, both the anime and the manga are original works from GAINAX, they are releasing them in parallel I think.

The only reason I might continue watching this show is that I want to see something really terrible happen to the main characters. It'd be nice if they all died horribly tragic deaths.
