And since Zetsuen caused a large spike in manga sales, it wasn't a bomb.

I feel that this is going to be like Code:Breaker anime, terrible adaptation with really bad sales.
When the trailer showed Yataka who is supposed to make his first appearance in ch 88 I already had my suspicions that even with 2-cours it could end up being fail but 1-cour? They have no time for anything.

Yeah...fu*k this anime. That was the worst pacing I've seen since zetman. I don't normally drop shows especially this early but god fuc* this anime. I love the manga but...UGH!

I was honestly not that impressed with this première. The direction felt pretty bland and not very engaging.

I don't like the way they totally skipped Arata Hinohara's story but made him repeat "I don't trust anyone", "I was bullied" and "damn Kadowaki". How can I sympathize with him by that?

If I stick with this it'll be just to fill my curiosity on the way they handle all the stuff they've hinted with only one-cour if I have time but... huh.

The ED song was good despite the visuals... Akachi and Kannagi are some of my favorite characters but I'm not happy the BL vibes they gave them

I haven't read the manga but I sympathized with him a great deal.

Anyway, I watched this episode out of mild curiosity, but nope, it's not my cup of tea. The story would be OK in itself, and as I said above I sympathized with Hinohara a lot, so I might even be interested in seeing how his character develops... But the way the whole thing is presented, it's the kind of fantasy that leaves me absolutely, completely cold. :/ (Also, I'm sure there will be some explanation, but it's kind of weird how nobody seems to notice that the two Aratas look absolutely nothing alike...)

So they just swapped bodies right? Since everyone still sees him as the same Arata? Well i'm interested enough. Might as well check out the manga instead as everyone is saying this will probably be a bad adaption.

There was a lot to not like about that first episode, but not giving any context to his angst as you say was the biggest deal breaker for me...

Instead of caring about why he was so miserable it just made him come off as a whiny emo bitch to be completely honest. Still I can see how this could have been interesting so I'll take a gander at the Manga. The anime however? Bleh drop.

Interesting first episode. As far as manga talk is concerned, I'll probably never read it. Reading the manga tends to create a bias towards the anime, which seems to be a common trend nowadays. I'm watching an anime, and I would prefer to judge an anime off its own merits.

So far, what has surprised me is that they originally needed a princess, yet the main character is a guy. Originally, I was concerned that this is heading into heavy BL territory, but so far, I have not seen enough evidence of that. Maybe one or two of the 12 Shinso might exhibit it, but that is only a small portion of the cast.

Which now comes back to the princess part. It looks like the series will not have a main heroine, per se, or at least a new princess. I'm wondering how they will resolve this scenario? It leaves a lot of questions, which makes the series interesting so far.

I guess you missed the line where grandma tells Earth!Arata that he looks exactly like her grandson to her. My guess is that only the Aratas' souls switched, not their physical forms. The fact that it looks like their bodies switched as well is probably for the audience's sake not the story's sake.

In the first scene we are told that he used to be bullied, and he's just starting to recover from it. His sister (or mother?) mentions that he has a friend in his class and what a big deal that is. Later on we see him telling himself he's going to be fine now. We see him not joining the track club even though he's great at running, obviously because of painful memories. Even later on we see him getting bullied again, also betrayed by his only friend. I'm not sure how much more we need to understand his angst....

I didn't miss that, but if that's really supposed to be the case it's the stupidest idea I've seen lately. Just make them look like twins or something, it's not like that would make the setting more convulted than it already is...
