This was fantastic and I loved every second of it, which is rare for a show like this.

Bun bun seriously needs to check this show out . I'm sure LKK would agree with me.

Great first episode, i must say. There was just a load of fun air about it which made it such an enjoyable watch, so as long as that carries on, together with the solid character interaction, then this show should be quite the gem of the series.

Pretty awesome how it's basically a mix between Ouran High School Host Club and Sakura Taisen. It's just needing the steampunk mechs, that's all. :3

Also this show is totally worth watch for Nakahara Mai alone. Zakuro is easily my favorite here, though the twins are very close behind.

Looking forward to more. Especially when the plot kicks in.

At first, wasn't really into it when I watched it, but after rewatching it a bit. I think its a title that could grow on me.

Mainly because I get a Sakura Wars vibe from it, and that little show/chanting thing they do when fighting the monster is rather pretty and hypnotizing.

A guy comes into contact with a standoffish girl and, for reasons that are part of who he is but will later work to overcome, has a hard time looking at her. Nonetheless, he tries to appear cool. The girl calls him "useless". In the first encounter with something dangerous, the girl is shown to be the more capable fighter.

Now, riddle me this.

Why is it that impressions of Kei seem to be overall more positive than they were for Ryoshi within the first few days of their respective series?

First episode was less shoujo then I expected.

By the way, did anyone catch the interview/presentation with the VAs after squid-girl (airs back-to-back with Zakuro) at TV Tokyo? I only saw the last minute or so ... Did they give any hint about character development, especially for the secondary characters, which I find more interesting

Really? I never heard about that policy change...
Hmm...?
Anyways, it has been moved now, so I guess the moderators just didn't get to it.

To be honest, I don't really know the rules and stuff involving it, since I don't bother with that site at all)

Totally different characters. This guy is presented as basically a capable military guy, with this one problem. That guy was presented as a shivering freak with one ability. Lots of little hints to lead us to respect this guy more: character design, voice, roses... (lol) Moreover, we are introduced to this guy directly right away, he doesn't sort of sidle into the scene later, so he is set up as a main character from the start. And this guy didn't just sneak a shot at the monster, he raced up and rescued the little pumpkins, putting himself in immediate danger. And this girl is not just human, she is literally a monster. Even though that girl was more of a monster, but that's another story.

Your question is a great way of showing how different two things can be that can also be described in such similar terms.

How do you define the "less shoujo" anyway? As in the character design? Or the typical lovey-dovey pairing like in other romance shoujo?

I don't know if i can tell an anime is shoujo or not, unless if i know the source they took it from.

Seen the first ep, and I simply loved it.

Also, I looked a bit into the cast and saw that Kei is Guiche (from Zero no Tsukaima) only older.

I read the manga prior to watching this so I already knew that I'd like it right away, a fun way to spend your afternoon watching, relaxing while also having enough intrigue to keep it interesting, all around a solid series that takes the classic shoujo approach but is clever enough to add a little more spice into the mix to keep things interesting.

Okay, a certain sly Bun sneaked a "I found a new bishie!" attack on me and, of course, I fell for the whole package - hook, line and sinker. But I'm glad I did - watched the first episode and had Ouran deja vu with Agemaki. So love the guy - his reactions made me fell out of my chair laughing. I really enjoyed the first episode, mostly because of Agemaki and his scaredy-cat antics - don't think I would have liked this show if it wasn't for him - looking forward to more.

I also kind of like that little chant/song they sing before Zakuro's attack.

I love that incantation. Does anyone know who's singing? I can't find anything in the on-screen credits.
