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!"

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...

Yes -- 12 episodes.
Thats disappointing ,Lets hope they don't rush the ending or ruin a promising looking anime.

That's the way to go. I at least give a few episode a try before completely abandoning it ^^ *cough* Shugo Chara *chouh*

Some who agrees with me on the amount of fan service the anime has. While I can agree with someone how feels fan services like those panty shot, it brings out more of the characters traits and disabilities more, like when Takuma *I think that was his name ^^* though that girl for another and accidentally groped her and other situations too.

- The remake of the game is nothing too serious anyway.

That's the thing though I'm not completely abandoning it. I'm simply waiting until its done (all episodes subbed) before giving it another chance. So in thirteen weeks I might post again and say I love it. ;p

I have a feeling it's not going to turn out like School Days.

This might have been mentioned already earlier, but in any case, I think it's of some importance for those who might want to try predicting what happens in the near future.

Spoiler for *Footprints in the Sand*poem:


I actually have a copy of that poem so, I was quite surprised when they used it for the anime. For some reason, the name's relevance didn't come to me before I watched the beginning of Episode 1... Lol

This series doesn't have any high amounts of fanservice. We had two scenes staring Hinata, and thats about it. Two scenes is not an awfully lot, and i doubt we are going to have much of those anyway, especially as long as he has regained his eyesight as both scenes were connected to his blindness issue. Somehow i doubt they are going to make a running gag out of this.

In the beginning, the premise of a blind dude as a male lead in a romance series is quite interesting. But right before the end of ep1
Spoiler for ep 1:
. This then give the vibe of another romance-which-might-turn-into-harem anime of the year.
Other than the blind male lead premise, I can't really find many things that aren't cliche. Otoha will probably be just another form of supernatural power, be that she's fairy, god, alien, angel, whatever. I hope she's not Jesus. For the bullying, Kohinata will either attempt suicide
Spoiler for Myself ; Yourself heavy spoiler:
or fight back like Kenichi in HSD. I hope she won't just suddenly become friends with Yui and her two lackeys. At least there's gotta be some killing to spice it up. The plot that I'll be interested in is why would Hinata and her grandpa call him Hirose-sama and why Otoha call him the promised one? I hope this series has nothing to do with a random teen saving the world kind of plot.

Yeah, actually, I think the fanservice scenes were just tied to the "the things blind people can get away with..." gag that began at the start of the show. And actually, it told us something about Takuma's character (he acts clueless, and he didn't do any of those things on purpose, but... His under-his-breath comment in the infirmary was pretty funny. ) The scenes themselves were a bit over-the-top, but I didn't think it was excessive or anything. Just kept things from getting too serious, most of all.

That's why I only chose the word "amount of" instead of other some significant value , it had some but just enough for expressing him.

After reading my own post, I guess I did sorta expressed it like the anime had more than what was shown >.<

I hope so too, Skyfall ^_^

I had been anticipating H2O for a good while now. The premise appealed to me since the main character Takuma is blind. What i find interesting is the reason behind his blindness which of course will be reveled as the story progresses. AS lighthearted as H2O seemed we learn that thats not at all true as one of the first scenes we see is Hayami getting the crap beat out of her so our Nanaka look alike has some issues, but the soft side that we see come out every now and then is what has drawn me to her as a character. Those 2 guys must feel like big men beating up a middle school girl i look forward to their painful death and the meaning behind the name Roach Women.

Otoha who i thought was a real girl at first proved me the hell wrong she is actually a spirit i didnt expect that. But obviously she waiting for Takuma as he is suppose to serve a purpose the exchange is his sight back but only for a limited amount of time. I actually like this since this gift has a time limit.

What really stood for me was the BGM which im in love with already. The beach scene with Takuma and Otoha had a beautiful Flute, violin, and piano concerto playing and set the mood of the beach and Takuma getting his sight back perfectly. I will be picking the OST as soon as its available

Damn, that's just wrong to beat someone up like that who won't even fight back. Poor girl. I'm not quite sure what it is, but this series seems somewhat interesting....looking forward to next episode to see how everyone will react to him getting his vision back.

It's only a matter of time until Kohinata snaps I'd say. Though she already seems to be a bit out of it already and acts it out.

BTW, I wish they did not have two Hinata's in the show. Sort of confusing

I kinda like the fact that Takuma's father is buff... makes me feel more assured about his expectant "treatment" by the others in school for his innocence of being a general good guy. Seriously though, Hayami's part of the show really bugs me. I hope this anime goes in a good direction, although I believe that I will enjoy this nonetheless.

Well if anything, at least the opening and ending theme songs are good

I'll withhold character judgement for now, though there's a good chance I'll follow this through to the end... Erm, better not jinx it

On first impression it is a suitable replacement for the now over "Myself;Yourself" ...

FINALLY! A show with enough drama to keep me interested, but mellow enough to create a down-to-earth feel. Can't wait to see how this one plays out.
