Has a nice cinematic feel to it, although my main interest is the back story with what happened to the previous civilisation. The demon they were talking about is probably some old bioweapon judging from the remains.

Didn't the nazi do the same? Also I'm pretty sure "they are older then they look" device is applied here. Not that it matters much, the age and concept of when you are not a kid anymore has changed over the ages (and different cultures have differences too).

So the moeblob genre continues....

Pretty dissapointed with this show, seems to be just K-ON in a different setting. I also hate when these shallow anime try to be deep with their whole demon this and that.

You thought that part was deep?

Actually the better question here is, who are these other anime that you speak of? Don't remember any demons in K-On! =P

Actually, 13 episodes have been confirmed. Senkou no Night Raid is taking over the Anime no Chikara timeslot this spring.

I find it funny how people easily dismiss a show they really don't know anything about, heck no one knows anything about it since it's an original animation. I for one didn't have a lot of hopes for it when I started, but I didn't dismiss it outright.

Hmm, episode one is a very colorful episode...
Surpass my initial expectation...


And quite surprisong... Aya Endou is back on her glass type chara...
Phylicia is a mix of Mugi, Sawako-sensei and Miyuki...

As for the new seiyuu, she do a very good job for her first role...

Same here, I'm hoping the show won't let all that go to waste by focusing too attention on mundane stuff.

Character designs does not a good show comparison make. This prob isn't anything like K-On! as its a post war title.

I didn't think the myth was shallow either guys. Seeing those girls in the picture of that myth caused me to pause a bit and think that tragedy may be down the road here. Maybe these are the reincarnation of the girls that died long ago.

It's about 30 seconds in from the start of the show.

Yeah...the animation in that scene was actually the ugliest part to me. That's K-On style? Really? o_O (never watched it).

Anyway, the music and scenery porn was pretty damn atmospheric here, not to mention that underwater scene. I really did get a sort of cinematic/epic adventure vibe from this, which is great, except the main character has 'arrived' now so I don't know if that's the last we'll see of that. Regardless though, it seems pretty clear that at least the soundtrack and animation (aside from examples like that sequence above) are going to be decent.

Regarding the content, I kinda really like the myth about the fire girls. The idea of embracing a fire-spewing head in turns in order to stop the flames is kind of fascinating (heroically and gruesomely so) in a mythical way. The idea of pretty young maidens having their bodies scarred and ravaged by flame in a more immediate context (i.e. in reality, i.e. in the present) would be kinda distressing to me instead. (In a perverted sense, if that's not clear.)

Speaking of perversion, thank you Kaioshin for reminding me of that 'dumping water on Konata' scene because to be honest it made me think dirty things. The assertion that that was fanservice is interesting cause if I think about it, yeah holy shit that was fanservice of a dark and demeaning kind that seems wholly antithetical to the rest of the show (y'know, 'heartwarming', the cheesy 'feelings/sounds reverberate' stuff, etc. lol).

Anyway, I watched the first episode kinda randomly on a whim but it's turned out to be actually rather decent (actually more accurately, I guess I mean to say it's got more than a few rather well done parts) so I guess I'll be following this from now on.

Right now focus seems to be on the bell necklace. Its shown as being worn by the blond trumpet girl in the opening scene.

You talking about the manga art? And its more like Kannagi art then K-on! (since I think its the same studio, and did it first as it were, lol). Also, isn't there a K-on! season 2 scheduled? =P

I think I get what you're talking about now. You mean these and the differences between them:



I did a little more searching since wasn't sure why you were even expecting this. And really, you should have seen it coming, he's not in charage of animation! Though he does seem to play a larger role in the manga; where the artstyle is more similar, if you could say that. But then its anime, it looks different even when they copy/paste manga strips.

If you see a water throwing festival as ecchi, dark and demeaning, I recommend you avoid any number of Italian festivals--the tomato one would really freak you out. I'm sorry, but unless you want to dig into some sort of deep Freudian unconscious interpretation , this was just a scene of people--including Konata once she understood what was happening--acting out and having fun.

I'm really getting much less of a K-on feel, art aside, than I am of Aria. Just from eps 1, I'm seeing something on the order of Akari meets Miyafuji. Combine that with the beautiful art and great music, this is in the running for my favorite of the season

oh well if i'm don't know anything about this, maybe i can enjoy this show which have good OP, background, etc. I admit its
