With Akira going against Konata!
Wrong. It's Nekoneko Tenshi Yuuna (notice the wings) against Minamo Narukaze. Not to mention the fact that Hiro's ringtune is Nekoneko Tenshi Yuuna's theme.

That being said, there were a number of issues with Nuke's fansub. Guess I should do it myself... -_-;

Spoiler for some thoughts on Chihiro's story line:
Or if, Memento style, she edits her own memories. Very troubling stuff if this guesswork proves true. I have to admit that she did indeed seem like someone who had heard about what happened the previous day, rather than someone who actually lived through it.

I would say yes in my books (though i may not be the most experienced viewer to say that XD).
This is a unique story which focuses on more than one (real) male lead - which is rather rare these days where harems usually only revolve around one guy (who has a bunch of stupid male friends ).

Thanks for the link on Memento as I haven't seen it. If she does have anterograde amnesia (I never knew the details or name of this), it would be a terrible thing to suffer from. At least she can still learn new skills. But thinking about a person suffering from this situation, she would have to edit the length of what she reads the next day or she wouldn't have enough time before she forgets what she has already read...

I do find it worrying that a page blew away in epi 1.

Okay, going to try and articulate my thoughts on this episode now...I have no idea where SHAFT is going with this, but it's not really to my taste. From what I've seen of Shinkai Makoto's game trailer, it feels as if the visual styles of Shinkai and SHAFT just don't complement each other. Furthermore, the way SHAFT handled the storyline, at least from the first episode, felt similar to the way Toei handled AIR the Movie; it's almost as if SHAFT was telling its own story, rather than doing an adaptation. Moreover, if KyoAni put nitrous oxide into the storyline for CLANNAD (TV) Ep 01, SHAFT swapped in a rocket engine for ef ~a tale of memories~ Ep 01's storyline. I have no idea on the original storyline of the VN, so I can't say for certain, but it simply wasn't what I expected. What exactly it's supposed to be....I have no idea.

This is just a first impression, though. Once I've gone through it a few more times, I'll do that blog post on it. In the meantime, anyone care to enlighten me on what more I should expect from SHAFT's style?

As expected, Tenmon's music was very enjoyable to hear. It seems as if there's three different storylines taking place here...

Why is it that the girl with the eyepatch resembles Hiro's sister?

Ok, my only complaint at this point is Yuuki Tai not using his sexy Naru voice for Kyosuke!! Dang and I was looking foward to that.

But I liked the animation and the story so Ill overlook that one aspect for now

Because they're sisters -- she calls her "Kei-onee-chan" at the end of her segment. Actually, I thought that was one of the neatest things about the show -- all the stories seem intricately related to each other.

Chihiro and Kei? They're sisters. (Shindou)

EDIT: Ahaha~ Got beat.

The story seems interesting . . . can't wait to find out more about the different characters. The music's pretty sweet and complement the scenes pretty well so far, not bad for a first ep

Loving the series and only the first episode is out.

Quick question, anybody know the name of the song on the official site? "ELISA" is that the person or the title?

ELISA is the singer's name. Song's title is "euphoric field".

It will be the opening song, most likely starting from the next episode.

Wow, that first episode was... surreal. I'm really not sure what to think about it. It's almost as if three different directors are all wrestling for control of the show. Still, the music is pretty, and it definitely has that 'wtf am I watching?' thing going for it, so I guess I'll hang around for a bit.

And here I was hoping for a quiet romance while I wait for 5cm. Little did I know that Shinbo was on board.

Before, I haven't complained about pacing or transitions. But with this series? It's absolutely fast with the former, and it seems they have no regard for the latter. I felt like I was jolted all over the place throughout the entire episode, switching back and forth between 4 groups (the three main guys and the short haired heroine with cell phone). A disturbing experience to say the least.

Only saving grace is the 'mystery' of eye-patch girl, which one can easily deduce. And there's something about those two people waiting in the church as well...

Hmm... let's see... if I had to rate it, it would be a 3/10. Easily the worst first impression of the new season, IMO.
