Yup, monir-san. Watch the game opening first.

After that, watch the anime trailer.

Then, you'll understand why I was all "I'm in despair!!!" just now.

I believe in your case, your "despair" was merely the result of watching the game opening first. Personally I believe you would of gotten a different impression of the anime trailer should you of watched that first rather then the game opening.

It's better not to compare the game animation to the anime adaptation, for starters like many people said, with a game opening movie, it's usually only a few minutes in length which means that they can put the time and the effort into making it fabulous. Animes on the other hand are 13 times or 26 times 23 min worth of animation, the difference in quality would be obviously noticeable.

When viewing the trailer for the anime, the animation personally felt spectacular, it's only when you are comparing it with the game opening does the brilliance of the game movie overshadow that of the anime. Honestly it's like saying that silver is worthless because you've tasted the lustre of gold...

This looks quite amazing. I know next to nothing about it, really, but the preview released a few days ago has excellent music, Nice character designs, and hints of that psychotic school girl theme that is popular now (And that I love.). This should prove to be an interesting show.

psychotic school girl theme ?

Now, just because the two girls were having a heated argument hardly makes them psychotic, no ? We might be in for a good catfight, but labeling this as psychotic is ... er...

You can't have a School Days-esque ending in the 1st story of 5 (or is it 4?).

At the least, you'd want to wait until the last one

By the way, the official website was updated with info on the DVDs (6 DVDs, first in early December) and a new background song and... wow, I love that song! Holy crap! If that's the OP song... wow! That's all I can say...

Oh... my God. SHAFT has done it again. I'm not sure if I should call this a truly disgusting joke or an experimental masterpiece.
Spoiler:
I'm thinking many might take this anime seriously enough due to the lack of experience of the original material, but I simply can't. SHAFT will never be able to grow out of its skin, it seems, despite what the prologue showed us. Even so, I like what they did with the funny in the episode, and overall I'm satisfied, not as a fan of the original story, but a fan of innovative animation direction in general.

EDIT: Oh yeah, the ED song was kind of lame. The art was cute, almost 'shoujo-like'. I expect something better next time for the OP though. I hope the song relentlessflame pointed out gets to be in it.

I'm just done with the first episode, and i have VERY MIXED feelings.

basically, i felt the episode horribly confusing, as it is shifting with the 3 male "leads" too abruptly.
The transitions between "normal" views, and "weird camera" and "alternative arts" are sometimes brilliant, but other times, dubious or invasive. (the absurd amount of changes in Miyako and Hiro scene is quite a deal for me)
Some of them were really too abrupt, and almost looking "oi, out of the blue", almost like Negima!? (some parts in Miyako scene, especially the blakc and white "multiplicated Miyako")

Even though the Church scene wasn't that important, I think it was kinda forced in the SHAFT version, as it almost completely looks useless, due the shortness, and the lack of impact/lines from either hiro or yuuko.
Renji and Chihiro were nicely introduced, though the non stop shift of camera almost annoyed me... is it done for dynamism or confusion, i wonder...
Yuu got completely shafted, though only shown with renji for a little while (guess both he and yuuko won't have much screentimes huh.)

The quality of this episode is very very neat, but the execution and squeezed content is a bit meh for me.
between 7-8 in my books.


EDIT: for those who are wondering what is this song on the official site, it is Euphoric Field, which will be released the 24th october.

That song is the OP. If you go to the "Broad Band" section, there's a 15-second commercial featured for it.

Which I can't play for some reason (like, the .asx never loads)... hmm... perhaps some sort of regional lock-out, or maybe something else going on.

Edit: Fixed already -- it seems to be some sort of IE7 issue, for some reason. If anyone else has this problem, try Firefox.

Well what can i say? I am actually glad that shaft took things with moderation (unlike negima?!) and whilst some scenes did feel funny - like the sudden ZOMG 10 black and white miyakos for nowhere!, we all know that they are capable of doing a lot more damage than this

Overall I am quite impressed with this start -

This was not what I expected for an anime adaptation of the game.
