It's pretty nicely paced and the comedy was good, so I'm probably probably going to continue to watch it. Yui is definitely my favorite so far, but Akari's pretty funny too.

Invisible boob-missile Akkarin was the best though.

from the first episode it seems like a fun comedy... gonna continue with watching. Kyouko made my day. she is my favourite so far... she has more yuri intentions one can ever imagine at this age(ok i may have overestimated her, but... i'm a fan of her okay?:P)

I've translated a diagram from the official site showing the various characters, what years they are in, and some basics of their relationships:

Thanks for the translation I stumbled upon a similar relationship chart today...were there two of them?

They're both part of the website, just on different tabs.

Watched the first episode of this, and the jury is still out for me. I haven't decided wether I'll follow it or wait until it goes completed.

Akari was pretty funny, and I like Kyouko's otaku tendancies. The "Movie" that made fun of anime cliches had me chuckling. It seems like an enjoyable show.

I was pretty scared for a while here when I saw the ultra cliché beginning of the episode, with the klutz of protagonist late running late for school, toast in mouth and everything. Thankfully, I quickly realized it was a parody. The parody of the parody we got later on was even better.

Overall, a highly enjoyable episode. I have a question though: will this just be an anime about cute girls doing cute things, with yuri being used as a comedic device or is there going to be some actual yuri? I just want to know what to expect. Yuri would be definite plus, but I don't mind if there isn't any as long as the show remains fun.

I like how they immediately addressed and made fun of Akari's lack of presence, which I was already starting to feel in this episode. She's a little bland compared to the other characters, especially the hyper energetic Kyouko. Favorite character so far is Kyouko, although Yui is a close second. Akari's sister has the potential to become my favorite character... if we ever see her, that is. Her room was awesome

The OP is very catchy and uplifting. The ED is okay...

I look forward to pretending that I don't watch this show.

I think it's pretty clear who will be stealing most of the scenes.

Is it just me, or do the Mirakurun Transformation Set looks like purple version of Akemi Homura's magical girl costume?

Mirakurun was one of the things that drew my attention immediately. We have a magical girl show-within-a-show that has its own theme song (I have an entire playlist for show-within-a-show songs. There's enough of them for it.) that's voiced by Ayana Taketatsu. And she solves her problems without burning them.

not really sure if I will follow this show.

I might re-watch episode 1 later to see if I can form a second opinion.

None of the cast really leaves any strong impression on me.

It's K-on with an edge. I approve. But the yuri siscon might be a bit much. OK, maybe not.

Ironically, in the manga...

Spoiler for manga spoiler:


Cute show, thus far. I might have left the start of the running gag about Akari's weakness as the main character for episode 2, but they kind of needed to maintain continuity with the main four characters before dragging in the rest of the cast. Not a lot of loud guffaws, but some snickers. Yui's mule-kick when Kyouko tried to look up her skirt was an especially good bit, as was "Invisible Boob-Missile Akarin"!

Okay, I did my research. Apparently the change in gender happened in the original manga too. Akari originally had an older brother, but in Volume 6 of the manga, it was revealed that she actually has an older sister. So the anime's actually bringing itself in line with the source.

Love the small details, such as chibi-Kyouko waving at the ferris wheel, and Chinatsu's expression when she gets Akari to open the door.
The ED sounds like the full length version might be fun.

Looking very much forward to the two tsundere's being tsundere to each other, especially since Emiri Katou is involved

Now I've done a characters/seiyuus page. More because the four stars are pretty new, than because they're particularly good. Still deciding. But I like having faces and backgrounds for them. A group of more experienced seiyuus just arrived at the end there, as the student council (includes Toyosaki Aki and Katou Emiri).

Thanks for posting that other chart, tezu. It looks self-explanatory, to me, since most of the info consists of different sizes of hearts, lol. It was on another tab on the same page of the official site, as Midonin says.

Not sure if anyone has mentioned it here, but the end credits show that Kotobuki Minako played a boy (for the first time, apparently): Takenaka Natsuhi, the boy basketball star.

Invisible boob-missile Akarin made my day. This goes into the IN pile for this season... The OUT pile is rather large though...

Second time. She was Chutaro Nezumi in Ookami-san.
