you guys made me open the packaging for v3. I doubt the scantalations will be faster than the anime, but the exact chapter will be chapter 16.

v3's insert:

happy?

Mirai is 14 years old. And given her short petite nature, if she's not a loli, I don't know what you're going to call her.

I read that Taito uses too much his immortality... but he is human and aside that doesn't have any special feature (meaning Hinata's attack speed >>>> Taito time of thinking). Not like he depends too much on it, but he has no other choice, he didn't train like Gekkou or is a yokai like Mirai.

Hrm ... well, I gave this series a try.

Not bad, but not really my cup of tea.

Maybe later on when all the eps are finished I will watch it again.

You know you wanted to open it.

At this sorry excuse for art? Not in the slightest.

I guess, I would use the word "nymph" or "loli-ish"(as adj.) I hope you can respect my choice not to call her a loli just as I respect your choice to do so ^_-
I think, it's better not to discuss it further since it may be a bit off-topic in this thread.

Character design kinda sucks IMHO.

Both girls with multicolored hair and all three guys with their hair kind of covernig their eyes? Reminds me of floggers.

And that may very well be, the thing I dislike the most about this anime.

I can put up with crappy plots, but not floggers, no way.

So does everyone think the crossover will be completely based on fanservice since ItsuTen is so fanservice heavy it will affect DenYuuDen?

the other 2 stories in the OVA already seemed to be fan-service-based from their titles. I'm speculating that DYD cross is to advertise DYD to Itsuten readers and Itsuten to DYD readers, since originally it didn't make it into the popularity vote. so they may introduce some powers or themes or the charm of the characters of both series. the most logical thing will be that Gekkou opens a portal to the DYD world, and Itsuten characters go into DYD world. there are already some hypothetical match-ups between Taito and Ryner on the net. it will be interesting if they fight.

I didn't like the first episode all that much due to a combination of things, but it did leave me enough on the fence to give the show more episodes to sink in. Despite my gripes with the overall directing, the story did interest me some.

But the second episode ... ouch, I found it borderline painful to watch. The visual presentation is anywhere between silly and corny (which contrasts badly with the supposedly darker setting), the flashing lights in all the colors of a rainbow, coupled with sparkly bubbles overlaying the screen every now and then, makes it quite hard to take the whole deal seriously. The dialog is simply bad and character interactions hardly believable.

The pacing is disjointed and haphazard, flow of battle gets interrupted by somewhat lengthy dialogs made of pure cheese (with everyone else coming to a halt meanwhile to give the characters the time to embarrass themselves until they are done talking), the bad guy was presented so blandly he only lacked a mustache to be a caricature of evil, and a monocle ... oh wait.

Yeah ... while episode 1 left me on the fence, episode 2 thoroughly crushed my interest in it. I don't get the feeling the staff is even trying with this one, rather than simply stringing together events with no regards to flow nor scene transitions, with an added layer of sprinkling bubbleness and Mirai's pantsu for good measure.

More and more, ZEXCS is becoming the first studio I have ever felt the need to avoid based on the name alone. I am still sore over the butchering of Fortune Arterial, but this just might be the nail in the coffin. Seems like the days when they could produce something of Canvas 2 quality are long gone ..

But they clearly can still produce stuff that delivers as much impact (in a bad meaning) as Canvas 2's last episode.

It was still touched on in vol 1's end to be fair....so omitting that is a bit...

Guess I'll wait until ep3 to see how they deliver the backstory before I give out a better judgement.

However, as the first arc in the anime, it's a massive letdown.

Still leaves a pretty decent-sized plot hole for the moment though, ne? Though if I had to guess, ZEXCS probably omitted that as the real explanation will come later. ...Still, it's just another thing to confuse first-time viewers for the time being.

Even though there are quite a few parts that left me roll my eyes I like the show so far. Guess I'm attached the characters. Himea is such an awesome looking waifu and Mirai is cute as well. Action was entertaining in episode 2, but I would really like some explanations and taking it a bit easy at the moment would give few points up. Random and speedy things really hurt the overall enjoyment.

I mean it's a bit bewildering. That's the word...

This anime is so...................PRETTY!!

I thought it'd be generic but I like this a lot. XD The character designs are gorgeous (I want figures of all of them!) and the boy actually WANTS the mysterious girl this time!?
Shocker.....

Exactly what I was thinking. First impressions of the series is horrendous, the second episode caused my eyes to bleed. It would take quite a lot for them to come back from there.

I didn't know Fortune Arterial was done by them, that was another tragedy.
