It's easy to see that this series can easily be summed up with just one word...."guns".

Anyway, gave the first episode a watch and...I really don't know what to say about it. High school kids using firearms and stereotypical female archetypes. How many series have we had like this so far?

Ah well, it's not bad though, did a good job at introducing the characters, their relationships and abilities, what the Butei are, and that there's a antagonistic force that's hunting them.~

I do like the main character, especially how awesome he is in his "Hysteria Mode". Seems kind of odd that lust would bring out such a chivalrous personality though, but I'll take it.

I have been waiting for weeks for this to air.
I was expecting to see a certain fanservice scene this episode but it seems like I will have to wait a week.

Is it confirmed how many episodes Hidan no Aria will have?

First episode was very faithful to the LN, so I quite enjoyed it.

I like the OP more than I thought. The ED didn't particularly impress me, but the visuals are nice. I think I'll give the show 2-3 more episodes.

Oh, and Shirayuki pisses me off. I don't know why. Her type of character annoys me. I kept rolling my eyes whenever she said ANYTHING. However, I LOVE her bra, lmao. It reminds me a lot of my most favorite bra that I left at home, unfortunately. >< Black lace bras really are the best. <3

A Zwei and Ein pair up again.

Loved the first ep. Aria's acrobatic , gun and katana skills and Kinji in Hysteria Mode.

So does this mean we'll see an Aria-tan in an Index-tan short?

The set up certainly is there. But for a 1 cour series I don't think they would.

I know people are more interested in the guns, but I was more impress at Kinji's choice of knife A Balisong is just oozing with badassery...

Haha that's kinda how I feel. I actually liked it, but I don't want to say so for some reason. I'll tune in next week and see how it goes.

In any case, the moment she said "heres your belt" I started laughing. There's no way that couldn't have ended in mass misunderstanding.

edit: I didn't like shirayuki either, probably because she seems incredibly out of place for the setting. Maybe that would change though.

I didn't like her either. I thought she was too manipulative.

and its concealable too. for a standard civilian, carrying that is probably against the law in some countries and states since its a deadly weapon. its that or he'll carry a military standard combat knife (i dunno why, but letting Kinji use a military knife just cramps his style)

LULZ MODE ON
im also amazed at Kinji's double tapping with his 92F against those UZIs.

some of the gun lovers here (*ehem* like yours truly) who have cash will probably have a replica of Aria's twin M1911's (i get the feeling that the author copied Dante's Ebony and Ivory) made by a gunsmith.

@Orion: you will probably find out soon... just how jaw dropping she can be... praying if they reach that far.

Shirayuki's a YANDERE? Srsly?

She hides it well....in the anime at least. I actually found it kinda cute the way she cries easily. We'll see if that changes...

Rofl, I've got one too...even though I'm much closer to Aria-chan's size. LOLIS MAKE ME FEEL BETTER ABOUT MYSELF XD

Watched the sub. Still like a lot. Kinji's SO talkative; his narration and epic face palms remind me a certain snarky someone from a certain anime that has a certain yellow-ribboned, self-centered goddess....

You don't know many yanderes then, a very common trait for yanderes is that they are excellent homemakers. She really doesn't hide it that well, she was obsessing over Kinji's every action.

First episode is so ugly and boring I stopped watching partway through... I couldn't even skim the rest... it just screams "bland" and "stupid." And the little chase scene before the OP? Possibly the worst "hook" segment I have ever witnessed.

I wouldn't say it's obvious she is one, but if you've seen yandere characters before when they're not acting psycho, they're usually incredibly sweet with, obsessive towards, and desire to do anything and everything for the guy they like.

That's exactly how Shirayuki's acting, so I personally predicted that if she wasn't a yandere then she'd at least be incredibly possessive of him.

I "picked" this up because of the discussions of this series on this thread and in 4chan (but actually, it's more of a "I wanna judge this series based on the OP theme") and well, things aren't going well for me.

The plot is predictable, especially since I have encountered both Shakugan no Shana (girl protag helps male protag in an unusual way) and Toaru Majutsu no Index (male protag is chased by someone who is after his life).

The fact that the titles and how Aria H. looks like doesn't help me in distinguishing the two.
灼眼のシャナ
被弾のアリア
Call me a nitpicker, but this is one of the first things I have noticed in the series: a title composed of two kanji, one hiragana character and three katakana characters... same as Shakugan no Shana. Also, the title of both series is stylized similarly.

Anyway, since I have watched the first episode, let's see how Hidan no Aria plays with its one-cour schedule.

So let me get this straight. If Kinji gets aroused enough, he will enter hysteria mode?

Looks like we can expect a lot of fanservice in key situations when he is required.
