I'm in love with the OP, not the song (actually, I can't remember what it even was ) but all the art nouveau imagery, so pretty. *_*

Spoiler for episode 1:

So, something felt off to me in the story but I'm, certainly interested enough to come back next week.

The 1920s, I think 1924 specifically, so we're three or four decades after Holmes actually, Victorique's old-fashioned clothing isn't helping there.

It's set in the spring of 1924 (it identified that right at the beginning of Kazuya's part of the episode, following the OP).

Damn, that was great...I loved the two LNs that were published by Tokyopop, and the idea of getting to see further into the story is wonderful. Good music, pretty art, and I love Victorique's voice.

Edit: I will note that while I'm not familiar with the series past the first two novels, it appears more of a case that belief in the supernatural is real, while the reality of the supernatural is left...as a maybe.

I have a feeling Kazuya will have amazing calves by the end of the season.
This is so very true, but the mystery isn't completely solved yet as the motive is not cleared.

I loved the animation. The teacher was A LOT cuter/hyperer than I remembered. Kazuya wasn't annoying (that's a hugeee +), and gotta love the attention treatment to Victorique's iris. Simply brilliant. I didn't listen to the Drama CD, but Yuuki Aoi's voice was appropriate (seemed to me that she tried to go for a deeper tone to get a more "old woman“ voice, which while didn't work particularly well, but was enough to match the cuteness).

Pacing was great. Keep it up BONES!

Finally I could see Victorique in anime, the loliest detective girl ever. How I've waited.
Yuuki Aoi did a great job with her.

Characters and setting are good, now everything depend on how interesting mysteries will be. Hoping they won't lose too much in LN --> anime conversion.
I'm disappointed with animation, it's fitting for that setting, but that's not the Bones I know, way below their usual quality.
Also, Yuuki Aoi was born to be Victorique's seiyuu, fantastic voice.

Looks pretty good thus far!

Also thought Yuuki Aoi was a great choice - I loved her work as Mina Tepes and Korone....

Ah yeah, I didn't saw it the first time, thanks for reminding me that. Hmm, so it's a bit newer than I thought...yeah, it fits, so it's around Agatha Christie's Hercule Poirot time period.

Oh, and like your assumption there, it fits in nicely that the belief in the supernatural/cult to be a motive, but it's not necessarily genuine...that works for me.

What's the point with this stupid decision? >__>

I mean, this is looking like the best show this season, and they decide to stream it in nearly the worst possibly resolution available -.-

Okay... I've been waiting for this anime since it got a green lit and my first impression is..... AWESOME ;D The animation was nothing really eye catching but the background art was amazing. Character design was good, but i still think they should have made Victorique a little bit cuter. I think the best thing in this episode was how fast paced it was ( THANK YOU Bones for not making the first episode boring ;D ). I really liked how cute the relationship between Kazuya and Victorique was shown, just like in the novels and in the manga. Talking about the opening and ending, I liked the ending song and animation (hmmm there wasn't really much animation in it, but what the heck ;P) better it just fits the atmosphere of Gosick the opening song was too happy i guess (i know that probably sounds weird ;D). Finally the voice acting was not what i expected at all, IT WAS BETTER than i expected ;D Kazuyas voice wasn't annoying ~YAY~ So the first episode was a BIG win for me and I can't wait for the next one ;D

Madoka might have had the most stylish first episode thus far this season, but Gosick had the most solid one.
Spoiler for Gosick Episode 1: Rozen Maiden:
Thanks for saving me the trouble of writing most of my thoughts lol. I love what they've done with Victorique. Her rolling around and pangs of boredom are so... adorable <3. Her 'piecing the fragments of chaos' moment was also represented very well visually.

I didn't find Kazuya's VA too bad, but as it stands Miyu Irino's drama cd performance >>> him.

I didn't know anything about this but for the fact Bones was behind it.
Even though the first 'mystery' was a bit simple I liked the pacing and I love that Inspector's hair.
When the lightning flashed at the end and the name of the boat was visible I thought it was cool that it was already introduced briefly very early into the episode.
I'm also liking that after solving this first case all the events, whilst introducing the characters, led up to them boarding this ship. Like I said I think the pacing is good.

I really enjoyed the this episode. The setting, music and characters are wonderful. Bones did a lovely job. Really like the opening and ending (especially the art on opening). I like Victorique's voice so much, and Kazuya wasn't so bad either. Victorique's getting bored is pretty funny to watch. This is my show of the season so far.

Now, I really want to order the novels and start reading them.

1. I'm glad to hear Kano Yui as the teacher. I thought she really made something of the character. I'm not sure why she hasn't had more roles since she won a seiyuu award for Sumomo mo Momo mo, but I'm glad she's here.

2. I liked the animation, but the one scene that I really liked was the way they drew and animated the teacher's arms and hands as she walked at around 4:20-4:25.

3. I also liked Kiuchi Hidenobu as Greville. I'm used to him in more serious roles like Hei and Ren. I guess this is somewhat close to Izumida in Ryouko's Case File.

4. Of course I like Yuuki Aoi. She's using her Mina Tepes voice, but for a quite different character. I look forward to hearing the character evolve. Nice combination of innocent and wise.

I'm confused... Is the "Springtime reaper/Black reaper" supposed to be a urban legend? Then why was the MC getting called "Black reaper" too? And is the "Queen Berry" also supposed to be some sort of haunted ship urban legend? Kind of weird that it turned out to be the ship where the party was and noone seemed to notice (the main characters or any other guests)...

Sort of a meh first episode. I don't like how it was done differently from the novel, so I'm kinda pissed about that, but it's acceptable. I love Victorique's design. She's so lovely and cute. <3 And Yuuki Aoi is kickass as usual.

OP sounds weird for a series like this, but it's okay. ED is decent, but nothing special. The OP is a more memberable song imo, but they're both kinda lackluster overall.
