Excuse me but can you please stop with the McCarthy style of paranoid biased perception of others? As far as people remember, guys were breaking their desk in frustration because you appeared unwilling to listen and accept any valid point they had made. It's no wonder, those have given up.

But really have you read anything/ played anything he wrote? That was really the main argument since we are complaining about writing. As for his involvement I wouldn't put his name first since he didn't have directing control over the entire outcome. Not to say the story will not have any faults, I would rather just judge the show when it is all out.

Even then, this is drastically different, so far, from what he's written.

I think his point is if you stamp your name all over something and it fucks up, then it's you that fucked up. There is a reason some authors/writers demand their name taken off a derivative once they attend the prepublication viewing. Mind you I'm in the camp that thinks ep1 was great.

That is true but I believe the director is the one who makes the ultimate choices in what we see. It is obvious Maeda was involved with the process. To say the faults of the final product are all on him doesn't really seem all that fair. I understand seeing that he is like the campaign for the show so he is receiving a lot of the back lash.

When people say that Yuri is similar to Haruhi, it doesn't mean that her characterization is a carbon copy. What Yuri's problem is is that her mannerisms are practically a copy of Haruhi's, from the way she stands, to the way she gestures, even the way she expresses annoyance.

To be honest, that was incredibly distracting the entire first episode. The way she "moved" felt Haruhi, even if she wasn't exactly the same in personality or goals.

I really do hope you're not referring to this thread because so far, I haven't seen anyone trying to convince you to "bow down to Key's storytelling." I agree that there is extremism on both sides but realize that you're a part of one of those sides considering your initial reaction to the first episode, it was far from "measured and thoughtful" if you ask me. You were pretty sarcastic and way too critical considering that we've only seen one episode. I would hope that you don't judge a book off it's first chapter, I've seen plenty of stories get off to a staggering start only to impress me by the end. So let's give this series a chance to find it's own way before getting too worked up about it.

Mind you, I don't necessarily disagree with your reaction to the first episode but let's tone down the rhetoric a little.

At the end of the day, everyone just has to accept that each person has their reasons for being in this thread. Not everyone's here because they actually enjoy the show, or even want to try to enjoy the show. Some are only watching the show because of its hype/pedigree, and some are here with the express purpose of causing forum drama. Some people are just looking for faults, and will jump on any opportunity to poke at any weakness because they know it riles people up. There is no point in indulging these sort of people or their comments. Take whatever nuggets of truth you can find, and discard the rest. If it gets into serious trolling territory, just report it.

Some of the 3D CG camera effects are more effective than others, but I like the camera work in general -- some really nice cinematography and use of colour/composition. I assume the scenes in the middle (the "briefing" section) will change with each episode. Love the wings at the end!

Yusa MINE. And Sekine is <3

As for the episode itself, uh I'm not sure what kind of show I'm watching. Comedy? Action? Concert? It switched from a weird first half to a more serious tone after the break, even though I don't really understand why exactly they need to pull off a concert instead of just stealing a few coupons through whatever means. The concert itself was quite nice though.

Also lol Key Coffee.

The OP is awesome (scenes match the song too); more impressive than the actual show so far.

Still some awkward animations, but some close up scenes looked really gorgeous.
