3. Do not zoom / maximize your player (no scaling by the renderer)
4. Turn on the deblocking filters if your player has any. (this step should actually net you the most obvious improvement in block reduction unless your player's deblocking filters suck). If you are using VLC, go to video->post-processing. Can't remember right now, but I think I used level 4, since there was a much more noticeable drop in sharpness when I used level 6.

Yeah, it might sound kind of dumb to do all these stuff just to slightly improve the quality, but well......
lol thanks for reminding me. I just realized, it's an APU! Jacking up the video optimizations makes it more viewable than without

Well... those spoilers I mentioned are on page 07, I wish I hadn't seen them, but if they're true, sure clears up the picture if just a bit.

I believe it's like all other pre-air's I've seen so far, in that they will air episode 01 according to its broadcast schedule, not what the pre-air set before it. So this week should be ep 01 in better quality.

Don't worry, if it's ep 01 this week, we're all in the same boat

A strike from a extremely powerful and sharp sword......RIP.

Impressions of the First Episode:

1-10 Minutes: .... This got to be a parody right? It's almost as if the author took out a checklist of Harem LN features, and checked them off one by one. If the author is really being serious here, as opposed to being over the top, that's an ominous sign

10-20 Minutes: It got better, and funnier. I almost thought we would have a cliche storm of Mecha tropes though.


Edit: After thinking through further about some of the scenes in the later half of the first episode, I suspect that "Everyday fill the harem trope checklist" life of the first ten minutes is deliberate. My theory is that Kotori is a fake sister, the MC is an artificial human, and the first ten minutes is the "happy ending" where the MC had his mind wiped, and allowed to live an ordinary, everyday life. Oh, and Kotori is not 14.

There's a reason why the Parents are missing. They don't exist. And this show is about to get darker very, very fast. The opening sequences after the 150 million murdering Spacequake is not typical of the rest of the show, but serves as a contrast to the much, much darker material down the line.

The very first few seconds of the episode already answers your question.

I'm not sure what to make of the first episode... Series like this aren't usually my thing, but I just adore Tohka's design and I both love and hate (in a good way) Kotori's character. I suppose I'll keep tabs on it for now.

But I don't like such a massive change in character, large enough to make it seem like the little sister he's known is a fantasy she created to deal with him.
I kind of think that's exactly what she did. She's been playing up to siscon fantasies as a disguise for her real personality.

EDIT: One thing the anime hasn't made clear yet, and I'm not sure if it should have or not: what exactly IS the organization that Kotori works for? What sort of official authority (if any) do they have? Are we supposed to know yet? If not, just tell me we aren't supposed to know rather than spoiling, please. It just kind of feels like we should know a bit more about them than we do at present.

lol, when it turned out the school genius was part of the whole thing, no big surprise.

Then it turns out the little sister is the commander of it all? I was like "oh come on..."

Wouldn't be surprised now if everyone with a name is part of it all.

Or maybe the MC actually died or is in a coma from a spacequake, so now he's dreaming about his imouto commander, and he just spoke with his friend about the dating sim, hence the dating sim theme.

^ Comrade! But I'm a sucker for the deadly combo of pencil skirt+pantyhose, so eyeing Reine is almost a natural for me.

Please don't tell this to Anego-sama while I'm unprepared. D:

I took a look at a couple pages of the LN, and while I didn't read enough to give any spoilers, I'll say it answered some of my questions about whether Kotori's acting, while raising a number of questions. There's definitely something big behind her character, and while I still don't have the faintest clue what it is I'm dying to find out. Hopefully things will get to the point where I can find out just what's going on.
Also, hopefully there's more to Itsuka's role here than simply seducing the girls in order to convince them to stop coming around.

Nice opening.
Those siblings were pretty fun to watch ^^
All the security measures reminded me of Evangelion anime.
It was actually pretty cool seeing something like that again.
This looks like fun so far.
I will give a few more episodes even if it does look like harem.

Kaminomi meets deadly beautiful aliens from another dimension. Kinda meh in the premise, but Kotori was a riot to watch. Her tsundere is not dependent on what Shidou does, but where she is currently. Such a shame she is the sister... woulda been real interesting if she was osananajimi. XD

Hmm?
All I can see is that if we take the 1st picture out you included, I see that all the eyes have the same shape.

The little sister was very entertaining... until she revealed herself to be Kirino in disguise. Damnit, it was already hard enough to put up with one Kirino, I'll have to deal with two of them this season!? I don't know if I can take it... Hopefully, she's not actually as bad as she seems.

So, this show is pretty much Kaminomi in a sci-fi setting, huh? Not sure what to think of it yet.
