I didn't know what to expect since I didn't really search info about it and this episode was pleasant.
Characters move well and are pretty enjoyable.
And as many said here Zakuro's lovely

I can't resist to these eyes, lips and this smile

Here's a good review I just found, making note of something most seemed to have overlooked, which was how much of a transition it was for Japanese Society during the Meiji Era and the inevitable culture clashes. It helped add a surprising amount of depth to the series for me, and I'm looking forward to any type of follow-up on how they'll manage this tension between the new and old worlds. Here's the link for any of those curious enough to read it.

Thanks for posting that link, KrimzonStriker. Now that you mention it, I do seem to recall Zakuro making some comments that pointed out the difference in culture. I'm glad it was expanded on. I will definitely keep my eye on this too.

hum i dont have really much to say about the series. I was unfamiliar with it in the first place but i loved the art style from what i saw so i checked it out. Looks like a fun romance/comedy. I was neither disappointed nor impressed but its very watchable. I believe what i loved most was how the characters flowed with the backround scenery and Zakuro eyes were gorgeous.

Finally checked out the first episode and it's rather cute so I think I'll be continuing it. Not as fluffy as I expected (I really had no hopes for the series) but still some nice light fare to balance out all the more serious stuff I'm watching.

Enjoyed second episode. And I really liked the conclusion of the hotel problem. Wasn't predicting that

enjoyable 2nd episode.
more culture clashes with the milk again, and Agemaki not sure about what Zakuro eats.
I wonder what Zakuro drank at the end in that bottle..

i like how they showed that zakuro has a dark past or maybe not from the dream sequence?, didn't really know what to make of that, agemaki just keeps screwing up, i found it funny that zakuro likes hanadate

The twins' flirting is really amusing. Oh, and kudos to Ganryuu for a job well done of distinguishing which one is which. I mean, it was obvious to us that even if they were look alike, they sounded different. Still, their relationship is improving in a high speed. Hm, if Ganryuu ended marrying, I wonder if he will get both of them? Could be huh?

--> I sense a rival for Zakuro's heart

Still bewitched am I. Not sure why. I typically hate "monster of the week." But the characters are all interesting, from the fox lady to the big soldier, and especially Zakuro. I even loved her little joke at the blonde guy's expense at the end. You just get a feeling that she's nice and fresh and real beneath it all. Magical show.

And I could listen to their incantation forever. I guess it is the seiyuus doing it, but I still haven't seen a real credit.

The chibi vers of the shadow was so cute :3 Oh Hanadate~~~ Your eyes are just....mmmm. Agemaki was once again adorable, I thought it was hilarious that the monster would scare him, he'd scream scaring the monster and then repeat XD

I like how this series touches on discrimination. How the yokai are looked down upon even though theyre helping humans in most cases, theyre different and therefore scary or below humans. Zakuro's speech about westernization was great but sadly looked over by the onlooker humans since she's "one of them". Thankfully Hanadate saves the day.

Nice second episode, the whole theme of westernization/modernization vs tradition was played quite well and is fairly interesting given how xenophobic societies are becoming now-a-days.

I also wonder if that deus ex machina lieutenant will be the (or an) antagonist, both for Zakuro's affection and in general.

It'll be on the soundtrack, i'm sure.

I'd hardly say this show uses the monster of the week formula. It's just your typical anime episodic build up, with character development.

Do you mean this "live presentation" (nico link) with Nakahara Mai and Okamoto Nobuhiko?
edit: Or not...this seems to have been filmed/broadcast a week before the show started...

And being a week behind most people is kinda tough...(but...ganbarimasu!)
