Maria definitely took the 'auuuuu' thing too far. Hanyuu was kind of pushing it, but I must admit I kind of cheered when Rosa punished her for it. Wasn't the best way to go about doing so, but back then I believe parents were still bringing out the belt, so it could've been worse.

I'd only played through about half of the first volume before hearing that an anime version was being done, and decided that I would hold off for a bit. I think I'm going to play it alongside the anime, so I'm not too terribly disappointed by any omisisons.

That's Kanon! Not Beato, look closely

Well Mint Kashiro...in the game it was stated that Kinzo once beat Jessica with a wooden sword, so

That was Kanon. It's amusing people kept mistaking him for Beato.

I was wondering... isn't calling Beatrice as Beato like a spoiler? I mean... well it isn't really important but it's sort of part of the story... sort of.

As long as the context and the details for this aren't disclosed, it is fine (I understand that shortening the name in such fashion isn't normal and that it would be something else, but that's really nitpicking too much.)

Hey...I've never heard of this series, haha. And this is my first time viewing anything related to it, so you can up the count a little bit. =P I kept on wondering why people had signatures and avatars of this show before it even came out. I assume that it's pretty popular.

Anyway, great episode, I'm curious as to why the old man wants to see Beatrice smile again, why the heck Battler always wants to play with breasts, and the creepy entrance of Beatrice.

And that opening is fabulous, that immediately drew me in.

I think it's an OK episode. I know that they've cut many parts but that's to be expected. Or else it would take too long to introduce all characters which may not good either. Some details about character background can be introduced later in next episode or may be next arc.

Well in the anime version it isn't explained, but for Battler's honor's sake I think it must be said that the "breast sommelier" thing is just Battler's way to joke and be friendly in his perverted way. What he's aiming for is to make the girls react.
When Shannon doesn't react at all he's somewhat shocked because that's not what he's expecting, and therefore he's actually happy that Jessica was there to stop him.

In both the manga and the visual novel there's this part:

Battler: Thank you Jessica.
Jessica: Why are you thanking me?!

On the bright side, at least they didn't include Battler's... downright creepy request to Maria. Because, you know, that's just WRONG.

Ahh, thanks for the explanation. I just kept on wondering if he was going to try to glomp every female character in the series. (Which would be awkward....haha.) To be honest, I don't see where at all this series is going, but I'm excited for it as questions keep on building up.

Oh that is clear now with my own LCD screen. I was at work laptop (10') with a very bad RAW, and was looking at scenes randomly when I stopped there. Almost forgotten that Kanon was actually searching for Maria too before you said it. xD O' well.

That's actually in Episode 2. The promise he makes on Episode 1 is the 'let me feel your breasts when you get older'.

That would have been funny to see in the anime.... ah well. I just hope they won't solely focus on the main plot, but also the little details that gave the games their funny/sad/whatevahr moments

The Ending is totally stuck in my head - yami wo kirisaku OH de~si~re - so I MP3'd both OP and ED, if anyone wants them:

OP: http://www.mediafire.com/?ojylix1dlkj
ED: http://www.mediafire.com/?mxnkjcxmnzi

Sorry if they were posted previously in the thread / if this isn't allowed!

Also, what's the names of both of these songs?
