Anidb states it as novel space travel, but theres not much more info. So is it worth the time or is it another "girl meets girls" for girls show.
Maybe if you didn't "jump through scenes" of the episode and actually sat down and payed attention to the WHOLE thing uninterrupted, you'd see that there's a coherent plot and not a "moeblob-esque thing". Like totoum said, moeblob often gets tossed around nowadays that anything that's relatively even a tiny bit cute, so it is often used in the wrong ways/situations -- your usage of it included.

The themes of the show are growing up, friendship, and adventure. There is NOTHING about the first episode (and I'm pretty sure there won't be about the series as a whole) that's even remotely reminiscent of how CLAMP handled Blood-C, so I have no idea how you could even begin to make that connection.

I'm not making a connection to clamp blood just saying that it gives similar feeling.
And I'm generalizing moeblob as of girls doing stuff and no story whatsoever.
That's why I ask those who have *novel* knowledge, is there something behind the girls flying around in space, something like a story worth following.

I wonder if the casting director saw how much she actually looked like Chiaki and hired her then and there.

Or perhaps they changed Chiaki's character design to look more like her. (Not least with the glasses.)

Well the glasses look very similar and the haircut helps too

She doesn't really look like chiaki in this picture for exemple

I'd say it's hanakana that tried to look like her character,wouldn't be a first.
Here's her at a ore no imouto event looking like Kuroneko

That's already been answered in the first episode.

Anime version is best, though 3D isn't bad either. The one from the novel looks like she wandered in from Toradora.

Vandread was so awesome.

Obviously early but I'd guess Marika if she keeps up this pace with her well-paced growth and rounded personality. Madoka may still be good though.

I get it Xaturas thinks Pink Hair = MoeBlob (Usually True).
Well in this case, no, There is some comedy, and some adventure. Protagonist is clueless because she was kept in the dark.

Naaaah as I said before I generalized or just threw down moeblob for the sake of throwing it.
I asked about it before, because no matter how I looked at it, it looked like some kind of slice of life show. Where girls would fly around in space and story would be episodic, like some other shows with their *enemy of the week* trope.
I didn't watch it yet but will do so, just asked if it had any story whatsoever, because I already picked quite a lot shows this season and wondered if this one is worth following to.
My main point was if this show will have a story which will unfold until the end of the show, or just some kind of "fluffy puffy we are girls we fly around in space".
Anyway enough from me ... if I post again here then I watch it if don't post then I don't watch it anymore.

That's kind of a silly question because it OBVIOUSLY has a story that will unfold (this is apparent the first episode that you claim is so "storyless"). It's not a comedy like Nichijou or a straight-up ecchi like <insert anything you want here>, so it WILL have a plot. Duh.

Wouldn't it be easier to just give a brief description of the plot rather than banter back and forth?

^Doing that will just incur the wrath of infractions (I got one for Moshidora novel spoilers ) . So the better options are either read the preview of the novels at the official website, or wikipedia, or review of the books at amazon, rakuten etc.. Though it won't be much of a help when the anime will not follow the novels after vol 3. Not PMing anything because, well, if he has the time to post comments like that, might as well use the same amount of time to read :P

Spoiler for Episode 1 - 5 title:

The end of episode 1 is already on page 127 (of 303) of book 1, but the above titles sound like they're finishing book 1 at episode 5.

I don't watch much anime nowadays. So what makes my opinion matter?
Spoiler for But I'll just answer anyway:


This is from Satou's twitter btw. He changed it from white to red and back to white, but the image names are almost the same, "two_maru" . Though Marika is the younger one, she's definitely the nee-chan, for me at least

No.

Watching one episode should not be considered too much to do when deciding if you want to watch a show or not.

A crossover where Marika and Madoka join forces?

This needs to happen
