OP is real great, like the songs.
The characters were pretty shocking- at one moment, i thought Mayaya was a guy.

My comment- enjoyable. Added in my list. I don't really have many choices this season.

Detailed first ep thoughts here:

I hadn't realized Takahiro Omori directed so many superlative shows. Baccano!, Gakuen Alice, Natsume Yuujinchou... Not only is he establishing himself as one of the very best in the business, but also a director of amazing versatility.

A couple of notes on translation.

After Tsukimi first realizes he is a guy, and he calls himself "normal," the implication is that he is saying he is not gay.

Spoiler for Translation stuff, spoilered for length:
Also, one other thing.

Of all of the fall shows, Kuragehime is the one that I had the highest hopes for. The first episode certainly is the funnest opening episode this season.

Here's what I've got so far for the film references in the OP:
  1. Star Wars
  2. Singing in the Rain
  3. Mary Poppins
  4. - Dunno - It looks like a Buster Keaton film, probably the General
  5. God of Gamblers
  6. James Bond in general
  7. Game of Death
  8. The Graduate
  9. Close Encounters of the Third Kind

Well, I gave Funi a few more days but dammit, I need my josei, legal streams or no. And I'm so happy I went ahead and checked this out, I'd been a little hesitant after I saw all the previews but, like a few other people said, it had more substance so I was really pleased with it. Knew about the twist but oh well, can't wait for the next episode!

Solid introduction episode, the OP and ED are amazing as well. It's interesting how this seasons features two shows with otaku heroines on both sides of the social extreme (Kirino the school idol, and Tsukimi the timid outcast)

Random seiyuu note:

This has got to be the oldest female cast i've ever seen,apart from Hanazawa Kana everyone else is in their 30s and some in their 40s.

It's refreshing to have ugly ladies as a main cast LOL. And I never thought I'd like how jellyfish look like...

Thanks for the extra trans notices, Sparrow1770. The dialouge makes more sense now.

ちゃう after a verb stem is very common short for てしまう (completely or unfortunately). >>

Edit: Sparrow1770 beat me. ^^;

Indeed it is - in fact that's what attracted me to this show at first, heh. Not too fond of loli fest or giant boobs here.

First episode was pretty enjoyable, and i can't wait to see more of Tsukimi and Kuranosuke, although my first impression of the other girls wasn't on the same level. I was surprised to learn that Mayaya is voiced by "Nami".

Also the OP is catchy and cute as hell.

This show is surprisingly interesting. Will be keeping an eye out for this.

Btw what is the obsession of the girl that was gifted the poster? I can't quite figure it out.

It's sad that despite the most brilliant first episode in quite a long while, this show isn't getting the traffic it deserves -_-

That's hardly surprising, considering the art would instantly turn most people off, but hell Kuranosuke is freaking sexy .

I actually completely forgot the plot, so I was totally surprised when that happened. Was an entertaining watch so I'll definitely follow.

This will be this season's "House of Five Leaves" - probably the best new show airing, by a great director, and a Noitamina property - but lousy ratings and DVD sales.

It's more likely to end up like Tatami Galaxy - under appreciated.
