Well, we already see that it's not like ef since the male protagonist is the one with the physical problem, not the other way around. I can't remember the last time a male protagonist of this type of show had such an outward physical ailment like that. Or did I ever watch any? Not sure.

Also, Kimikiss strikes me as the more quaint, more slice of life style show. H2O doesn't give off the slice of life vibe to me. It seems quite leaned towards melodrama already.

Oh we will be getting drama from this :3
On the surface it's like any other VN romance titles with a cast full of mixed personalities but the thing with having a male lead that has problems is different and original. I can't think of any other series that has the male lead incapitated with a mentality problem, actually I take that back as shinji (EVA) had a real problem...but they are rare and few in between - usually it's the girls with the yandere and psycho-ness (I guess some male characters have it too, but they are just overlooked as being creepy...at least when most girls do it, they get pity XD).

First episdoe was not bad, quite interesting, the only part im not happy is Hayami bullied by 2 male, tat 2 boy can go get kill.

Takuma can heal so fast for his eye, but i think wont last long. BTW, who is Otaha, is she angel?god? or?

Hinata seem to a bit sad when she at home and talk about Takuma-sama?

looking forward for next episode....

Well, obviously, it's some kind of psychosomatic blindness, and we'll find out the reason for it later. Although at times I thought it was all some big con he was pulling so he could feel up girls and lift their skirts with impunity (I thought he used his white stick?).

All that promised one business seems pretty intriguing though, and what is Otoha-chan, a figment of his imagination or is she what she says she is?
Mind you, when Otoha led him into the sea and told him he was the promised one, my first thought was "Please tell me she's not Loli the Baptist!"

Well that was a interesting enough first episode. Little too early to pass judgment on the show especially considering M:Y managed to trick me really good with the false hope that'd it turn out to be a good show in the end.

I do hope his period of regained sight doesn't last too long... Him being blind was one of the few things that really grabbed me about the show.

First thing that crossed my mind upon finishing episode 1...

Otoha = The Lord!?

Jokes aside, that was a nice addition, that poem prior to the episode's start even if it purposely missed its most pivotal line in the end. Was it used in the game as well?

Nono, I think that is quite valid. Maybe not the lord, but she could be takuma's guardian angel ^^
She is the one who is walking beside him and "looking after" him so to speak so it is nice to think about how the poem connects with it that way.

Takuma makes me remember Kouhei from ONE... I guess imagination is your friend sometimes...

BTW, I liked the episode and will be following this. I may even start playing the VN, the wikipedia article says good things about it.

I find it odd that no one has referred to Takuma's "white stick/cane" as his pimp cane....

People shouldn't be so overcritical right now because it is only the first episode out of twelve in the series.

Average first episode (at least Hayami's stundereness is good ), but the shocking part was

Animation looks good enough, so I guess I will be following this one, but I'm not expecting anything great.

Well, there's a recent remake of the game called √After and Another that you can purchase pretty much wherever ero-games are sold (HimeyaShop for example - NSFW!). It's the same as the original visual novel, except it contains two additional routes (Yui and Setsuna).

The show airs Friday mornings at 1:30am (Japanese time), so if you live in Europe/the Americas/etc. that's the equivalent to sometime on Thursday. Fansubs are out whenever they're out...

This one can't possibly be worse than Myself; Yourself, can it?

Oh well, I'm about to find out. The story does seem promising...

The history is very promissing, but...

a very poor pencil art for characters is notable.

The fan service events was very forced, I only approve the first one

I will follow next episodes by curiosity.

The first episode showed potential. Although I'm worried that it may waste it. In any case I kind of like Otoha and Hayami could be interesting if developed right. However in terms of Yui. Let's just say I hope she reveals her true form soon. Yeah I hate her already. She definitely lacks well a heart.
