This has the potential to be really interesting.

Looks like Magica Madoka actually has a challenger for this season.

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)...
The Reaper who comes in Spring is part of the school's urban legends and the reason Kazuya get's labelled as such is because he's Asian, which is very rare in the school. Basically the students love urban legends so much they forced him into the role due to his unique features.

The two cour part was confirmed earlier in this thread I think.

Now, this is what I call a fantastic first episode. Characters and setting were introduced very nicely. I'm loving the visuals of the OP - the song not so much, but it might grow on me later. Good production values all around, although I thought the musical placement was lacking. The music was so overly present that it eventually faded into the background and I forgot about it.

The characters are very colorful (that pompadour, holy christ!) and fun. Grevil is fabulous, and Kazuya is a perfect sidekick so far. His interaction with Victorique are very enjoyable. I thought Victorique looked very cute, but I had no idea she was THIS adorable. The yawn, the rolling around on the floor, the way she behaved like a little kid going to Disneyland for the first time when Kazuya brought her to town... HNNNNNGGGGG. I'm very curious to find out why she's apparently locked up inside that library, which was incredibly humongous. Great architecture.

While I was completely enthralled by everything else, I have to admit I didn't find the mystery very engaging. It was pretty boring in fact, since it was very easy to figure who the culprit was. Hopefully, it will be more interesting to find out what her motivation was. We can't forget the heart, it's an integral part of the mystery.

PS: I hate how they pronounce Victorique "Victorika" instead of "Victorku". Ah well, I'll get used to it.

That being said, he isn't exactly that bright as he did end up almost going on a one day cruise with Grevil :P

I noticed this on my second watch. Yeah she's a lot more hyperactive comapred to what I imagined her (being definitive and final about her word, overall dreamy-head-in-the-clouds personality but at the same time no nonsense) can't say I dislike how they showed here though.

Very true! I think I might have forgave it a bit more had I not listened to the drama. Hopefully he improves from here on.

It's true, the show is set for 24 episode. duckroll even posted earlier in the thread about which material the anime was going to cover.

This somewhat annoyed me, especially since the name is traditionally a masculine one. I guess they didn't want to throw people off to much but still.

I suppose Victorique ''tapping in to the fountain of knowledge'' scene can be seen as somewhat supernatural, though I thought it was just cosmetics

Ah so it was announced, thanks a lot. I've been staying away from this thread in case of spoilers, so that's why i didn't see duckroll's original post.

Your welcome and you shouldn't worry about the spoilers here, there is nothing early on that revels anything important other than the characters names.

A somewhat disappointing first episode for me too. The mystery... was not much of a mystery at all. There was no suspense, and the transitions felt a little abrupt to me.

Haha, maybe not so bright, but he's definitely got a personality. That already sets him apart from other guys who really get pushed around without ever saying anything of note.

Hmm, when you put it that way it certainly sounds more appealing as a first episode, especially when drawing in new viewers is also necessary.

I'll also be with the anime watchers after the first few episodes since my source exposure is the same as yours (novel/drama cd) with the first vol of the manga. I won't spoil myself further anymore and will look forwards to the rest of the story (especially whatever overarching plot may be in store~).
Spoiler for Also, it amused me...:

Don't forget Sunako now. The character sucked, but Yuuki (Aoi, not Natsuno) didn't
