Well, the first episode was actually pretty good!

I liked the whole 21:9 aspect ratio and how cinematographically were shot some scenes (slow mo hug attack was awesome). Though faces of characters (and some scenes in general) were drawn a little bit derpy at times. I guess they spend all of their budget animating Chiruchiru because good lord she's certainly moves a lot and gloriously (I wouldn't be surprised if Dogakobo helped out a little). And that is wonderful.

They cut a fair amount (or, as usual, decided to use some scenes in the next episodes), but it was mostly not really necessary and interesting scenes, so it's fine. Though I'm sad that they cut the cicada scene ("HEY! Where are yoo going!?" indeed ), but considering the amount of funny moments in the VN that's to be expected, you simply can't fit them all (speaking of funny moments: Yuuji's "I wouldn't say I'm very fond of jokes" was hilarious because just moments later he shows that he's very fond of jokes (or at least sarcastic remarks); Yuuji, stop bullshiting people ).

Very much liked that they kept the soundtrack from the VN. Because, firstly, it's pretty good, so no need to fix what ain't broken, and secondly, after 50+ hours of reading it's just ingrained in my brain now, so it wouldn't be the same without it . Also, the voice of Takahiro Sakurai fits Yuuji perfectly.

And oh boy, those last two minutes. Hell yeah I'm gonna hop on on this hype bus train. It would be really cool If 8bit indeed plans to adapt all 5 routes. All they have to do now is to finally announce that there's gonna be 2-cour and I'll be very happy (well, at least before they'll start screwing up the adaptation, which I of course hope doesn't happen).

What I didn't liked is the amount of teasing, especially
Spoiler for VN comparison:
Also, not a fan of pantyshots. They just seem out of place, especially considering that there's enough Amane and sexual jokes that you simply don't need to add pantyshots. There's enough fanservice as it is, basically.

P.S. Dat Juicy Yuuji's juicy butt.

If I remember correctly, there's only one pantyshot in the entire VN, and it's right at the start.

They didn't really add comedy or all-around harem hijinks though. If anything, they cut several funny scenes. Also, comedy and all-around harem hijinks are one of the best parts about the VN, so.

As Klashikari said, it's ultimately up to you to decide how exactly you want to experience Grisaia no Kajitsu. I'd say give both methods a bash (i.e. "read VN before watching an episode" and "read VN after watching an episode") and see what way works best for you.

Interesting first episode. I was intrigued. I liked all the character except the box-cutter wielding tragic-heroine wannabe. Get over yourself lassy. She can't be that tragic compared to our hero, can she? I mean, he's got scars all over his body.

The other objection I took was when Amane's boobs came into view and suddenly you've no more clear view. But a guy's firm ass doesn't concern Japanese censorship. Nice ass, by the way.

The way the episode came to hint at bunch of these back-stories were well done and added to the intrigue. Right now I want to know what happened in the bus to Amane and how Yuji is involved.

Looking forward to episode 2. Oh and Yuji's briefcase code is 9029.

Hmm...Grisaia no Kajitsu is the second VN anime adaption I see in this season after Ushinawareta Mirai wo Motomete. And wow, the difference in quality between these two shows is so much.

The first ep. really impress me. The MC is great for this type of show. The story is interesting. All characters are great. The visual is beautiful...Oh and those fanservice(s) ^^

Only bad thing in the first ep. is the censorship....At least they didn't censor panties.

I will follow this.

Given the opening intro and ending, is this the first 'tragic heroines' vn adaptation we had in a while?

Depends on your definition of tragic. The original game was not a nakige unlike the Key games or Minori's Ef that were adapted in animes

Another very good episode. I like what I see, but I am quite afraid as it looks it will be battle (I hope not literal) between Sakaki and Amane. Sakaki looks great and I will cheer for her, but already hate Amane guts (I don't have problem with sluty character in general btw).

If she will look like main heroine I might drop it despite strong atmosphere and appealing plot .

Apparently I was right. The two main animators on the show are Masayuki Nonaka and Enishi Oshima, both Dogakobo regulars. You can see their work all over Love Lab (that's pretty much why I thought about Dogakobo, Michiru's scenes reminded me of the those smoothly animated scenes from Love Lab).

good series....
Started playing the game weeks ago but lack of time because of work made me give up temporarily.
I played it like 6 hours, but this one episode of 20 minutes gave more spoilers than what i found out in the game so far.
gonna resume playing between the episodes so i can clear all the routes before the series ends.

Wow. That was pretty damn good. I'm impressed. I wasn't expecting anything that good. The main character feels a bit like Sosuke Sagara... but not dense... I'm already very intrigued. This looks like it will be good.

Loved the first episode. All the girls seem pretty quirky and fun to watch, and MC is fuckin slick.

I know nothing about the game or its story, but the feel I got from the first episode is that this will turn into a survival, last person standing, story. (Please don't confirm or deny my speculation!) I liked all the characters we've met (are going to meet??) to varying degrees with a special attraction to the boy. (Which shouldn't surprise anyone who knows me. )

I just want to remind the game players that there must be no hints or spoilers in this thread about what is to come. If you want to do any sort of comparison regarding what was already shown (nothing future), it must be entirely behind properly-labelled spoiler tags. No tips, no suggestions, no para-anime explanations, no correcting speculation, no game-only insight. This sort of deeper game comparison and speculation could go in the (until now under-used) game thread instead.

Very interesting episode. i'm definitely in. It reminded me a bit of Higurashi. I like the concept pretty much so far. Or at least what I could get so far. A normal school with normal girls that are not normal is already a good change of pace, since it has the possibility to play around with all the usual antics and turn them to the dark side or use them for a real reason instead of just because. First example, Amane half naked body used, I suppose, to confuse the MC. She was trying to check something about him. did she kill her sister? We will see. Sadly (for her, not for us) he is not that kind of guy.

For now I'm expecting that every girl is somehow connected to him and has her reason to kill(?) him, or be in contrast with him. Don't know if they will be related to each other or each of them has a personal story on her own not related to the other girls. Given the particular employment of the MC he may have done something bad to each of them. But that alone wouldn't explain why they are so normal

For now my favorite is Yumiko, despite they didn't do a great job animating her face She seems to be a bit ahead among the girls, but since I don't know anything about the story and since this will be not your typical anime I may be in the wrong. Surely I agree that she seems to be the least mysterious of the bunch.
I'm looking forward to the next episode, but I'm already sold.

The meaning of things lies not in the things themselves, but in our attitude towards them.

While I don't care too much about fan service, the repeatedly appearance of the pantsu made this show and the only main guy less serious, the last part was excellent though.
