Wait a minute monir, what are you doing here? Meine gott, this be history in the making, we've got 3 old legends in one thread since more than 3 years ago (Xellos-_^, monir and mangatron), looks like this thread will have one helluva zany, loli-free discussion (here's glaring at you Xellos )

Pretty good episode, though the dumb redhead is already starting to annoy me.

hahahaha...lolitron.. It's been a while. I stand corrected.

Not to alienate everyone else with our exclusive reminiscing, ( ) I also couldn't take the red-hair so seriously with her declaration, "kono hito wa atashi no taisetsu na hito"... considering she also said, "are you my prince" and followed with "these days its fashionable the girls save the prince." She also declared later on how will she atone the sin of killing a person with her ultimate crater creating light beam.

Whether the show remains fun or not in the remaining episode, I've a feeling the conversation by the fans of this show will be entertaining.

Haha, you know me. Since when did I ever view anime normally?(read: never)

You know there's going to be something weird that I'm going to be the reason for discussing (look, them 2 girls are the topic now because of me)

three legends on the same thread on a new show.

Well my first impression of the manga is great but the anime beat it up! The first episode leaves a tons of impression and this one will be my most favorite of the season

Well to me the more noticible background character is the purple hair meganekko. She may not be a looker but she stands out.

the background sound is also good specially when junko is starting to attack akuto and kena. Good grahics too. I'm not disappointed a bit.though the fundoshi again and again from the start.... kinda annoy me.

the material that I have read for this is just 6 + 1 extra chapter manga but I didn't get the impression of it being that it had high class technology. This one really surprised me when the city is like an advance academy city. Plus in the op song with him riding a dragon and shooting down a flight carrier is awesome. I expect a lot from this one hopefully it live up to it.

Hi there Tsunade! Yeah, what impresses me the most about the world and the setting is the mix of magic and technology, like for example the elevator and the train. Also, the crow prophesied to a girl that she's going to be a magical engineer, so I'm hoping for further explanation in the future of how exactly that would play out.

Out of the new anime premiering this spring that I have watched, this is the one that exceeded my expectations the most. However, there have been a lot of cases when the first episode is awesome, but the latter episodes never got to live up to such quality again, which I'm hoping wont be the case here. All we can do now is wait patiently for new episodes (ep 2 coming tomorrow, right?) and hope for the best...

What i expected from this show when going in was entertaining silliness, and that's pretty much what i got, so overall i am quite satisfied with the episode Watching everything the poor guy does turn around to bite him was amusing, as were his attempts to fix things just digging him in to a deeper hole. The nurse was nice in a playfully scary manner, and the classmate who has already subscribed himself as the demon lord's underling was worth a few good laughs. The red haired girl at the end is either a true airhead, or is playing that up and has other plans for the guy ... given his luck, it is probably the later

One thing i didn't really like about the show though was Hatori - which comes as little surprise for myself, seeing i usually have a bone to pick with the brash, prone-to-violence-outbursts characters, but meh, will just have to grit my teeth and bear through with her. I wasn't initially all that favorable towards Akuto either, with his goodie-two-shoes nature, but that quickly became a non-issue with the amusing ways things work out for him, which was the whole intent i suppose. Will just have to see how it goes from here, but looks like this will be another show to add to this season's pretty good comedy lineup. Looking towards for more of our unwilling demon lord.

On a side note - the idea of the "prophecy penguin(?) is so borrowed from Harry Potter

Crow actually.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Three-legged_bird#Japan
Quote:
In Japanese mythology, this flying creature is a raven or a Jungle Crow called Yatagarasu (八咫烏?, "eight-span crow");[14] and the appearance of the great bird is construed as evidence of the will of Heaven or divine intervention in human affairs.[15]

Although Yatagarasu is mentioned in a number of places in the Shintō canon, there is very little explanation, and much of the material is contradictory. This great crow was sent from heaven as a guide for Emperor Jimmu on his initial journey from the region which would become Kumano to what would become Yamato. It is generally accepted that Yatagarasu is an incarnation of Taketsunimi no mikoto, but none of the early surviving documentary records are quite so specific.[16]

On many occasions, it appears in art as a three-legged bird, although there is no description stating that the Yatagarasu was three-legged in the Kojiki.

Both the Japan Football Association and subsequently its administered teams such as the Japan national football team use the symbol of Yatagarasu in their emblems and badges respectively. [17] The winner of the Emperor's Cup is also given the honor of wearing the Yatagarsu emblem the following season.

Say, I just remembered there's a Yatagarasu in that newest Ace Attorney series, Miles Edgeworth Investigations, though not exactly the noble type.

Say, Skyfall, looking at my friends list you're the 4th old friend to join in this series. Man, am I a magnet for hilarity? makes me wonder who else is going to run into here
