I think it's plenty. There really isn't a *storyline*, it's just kinda a day-by-day thing. Plus they could always make a second season

Enjoyed the first or second episode.
I kind of see how the subs could have affected the viewing a bit, but not really, still, I'll probably rewatch the episode with DATS' subs because for some reason, I have the feeling that I'll really like this.

Eh, it's just the first episode, so it might turn out to be something different.

REC was a short slice-of-life romance, wasn't it?

And about Sakuya's boobs, they really weren't so small in the first ONA (though they weren't quite so large), it's just that she had so few appearances and it was difficult to see her chest that people didn't notice so easily.

The only thing I have against this series right now is animation. It's not smooth and is robotic and times, but they're probably short on budget. Oh well, as long as I'm enjoying it, right? I tend to be picky and look at things more closely.

I know what you mean. If you look at the scene at the end when they're standing in the rain, and they zoom out, it looks like Kana's on drugs lol But come on, it's a YouTube-like (Nico) presentation/raw. Kind of hard to put much detail into such a small resolution show :P

I pray they stay away from the drama if they do.

And Sakuya's boobs were rather huge for her size and age......I noticed after rewatching it, BIG!

Before people put too much hate on the animation quality, wait for the DVD versions. The animation on the ONA was touched up for DVD, amirite?

It's currently being made for online streaming... can't blame them for doing a rather poor job. Be another thing if it was being made for HD TV. D:

This unfortunately loses so much in the stream format. I'm almost contemplating waiting for the DVD release of future episodes, since there's such a big gap between the quality of the streams and the quality of the DVDs.

Ep 1

Damn this show is fun. And I guess I was wrong about this being better as a film. Having seen this ep, and the general flavour of this series, it'd be too episodic to work as a movie. Nonetheless, if it were a movie, we wouldn't have this animation quality gap to worry about, between the internet and DVD releases.

Disappointed by the ED theme in this episode. No where near as catchy as the one in ep 00.

Kanade is awesome!

Hey everyone, I've made some User Icons from the new episode, so they're behind the spoiler cut if anyone wants to use them.

I'd appreciate credit of some form if you can, but I realize that this is the internet, so yeah.

Spoiler for Icons:

Froth-bite release theirs, and it's really much better. I even got a somewhat better understanding of the conversation between Kanade and Sakuya.

This is yuri level!

Now, if you're talking about kisses and whatnot. No, I don't think it'll get there. Why? Because lately japanese yuri fans are quite obsessed with this idea of "pure love", which would be something like romance but lacking some of the physical (sexual?) aspects of it. It's a fantasy (obviously) and sells really good ^^.

But I'm not complaining; I love this little piece of yuri for what it is.

Yeah, I'd rather have a slice-of-life fanservice harem with no storyline at all too.

As I said before, Sakuya's boobs did seem to grow a bit in this episode, but they were quite large in the first OVA/ONA, though she had relatively few appearances.

Eh, I thought the animation quality was better than a lot of other stuff this season, and just the video quality was low.

I saw both the DATS and Shin-GX's, and DATS let me understand the conversations more, but I'll still try out Froth-Bite's because I've seen some of their other work and I have a good opinion of their translations.

Well, Candy Boy has little to no fanservice: no pantyshots or boob groping, etc; just fluff. And that's what the series is supposed to be, so I don't think it counts as fanservice. Also, this isn't Harem at all, as the only relationship going on is that between the sisters (as established by the original ONA) and Sakuya is there mostly for comic relief (and she's great for that role ^^)

I agree about the drama though. I'm just fine with the slice-of-life fluff.

Meh guess you could lump me in with them...I've seen enough overt service lately this season to kinda makes me desensitized to it...Right now hand holding and cute slightly suggestive little bits of scene are more service to me then "ZOMG BOOBS".

So you believe it's either something like this or "ZOMG BOOBS" fanservice galore? That's no what I mean. There is non-fanservice yuri depicting actual romance (not subtext) out there, but those are mostly manga only stories (for example Strawberry Shake Sweet or Aoi Hana). But since it's actual romance it can be seen as lesbianism, and that's what anime producers always try to avoid. Since Japanse yuri fans tend to think the same way, stories like Candy Boy, which are really close to the line but don't actually cross it, are the perfect anime product.

Well, this is still a lot better than "ZOMG BOOBS" lol.

I think it's all building up for the episode which will be involving Christmas (most like the last episode), since they've been hinting about Christmas for the past 2 episode. Something sweet and super fluffy will most likely happen then, wonder what it will be..... maybe just a kiss.... Oh, well doesn't matter, I really enjoy this short little sweet series, looking forward to ep 2.

The characters are pretty enough that just their appearance in a scene is fanservice in itself, though.

That was actually a bit of sarcasm.

Honestly, I kind of want this to turn out somewhat like REC, starting out slice-of-life, but having a similar ending without going overboard.

Yeah, it's actually pretty difficult for me to start an episode of Kanokon after pushing myself through Rosario + Vampire last season.

Yeah, just like Strawberry Panic.
Ah, I'm kidding.

But I agree. It's a cute relationship, nothing extreme, but there's something still there.

Or something will happen and it will turn out like a Hollywoof romantic comedy.

I hope it doesn't mess up at all, since I'm genuinely interested in Candy Boy, having seen all three fansubs released so far for the first episode.
In my opinion, FrothBite > DATS > Shin-GX in comprehension, though they're all relatively good.

All three give a different translation of Kanade's lines at her locker, her conversation with Sakuya, and Sakuya's gift envelope, but since I don't really understand much Japanese, I can't really judge them based on the translation, but moreso how easy it is to understand whatever is going on.
