What an amazing way to start a story. It's essentially two characters talking to each other for 18 minutes, but so much is revealed about their personality and basic backgrounds, in a smooth manner like adding pieces to a jigsaw puzzle.

Yeah, but I thought they'd pick a voice that fits her appearance.

A very strong debut episode, IMO. Quite possibly the best I've seen yet. Long ago, I picked up the 1st volume of the manga when it was released here, but I never bothered to actually read it. I came away from the show with a strong desire to pull out the manga and read more. I am that hooked.

Just a note. This is by the same person who did Zetsuen no Tempest.
In other words you'll be seeing a lot of talking and manipulation on logic and perspectives.

Best debut of the reason and possibly AOTS. Persistent main girl asks main guy out in direct, to the point and concise manner. I ship it.
Actually I was expecting them to animate a tango session of the pair at the end but... oh well.

A very nice start. Kotoko is a very likable character. I really appreciate her being pretty straight forward and direct. She's sat on her feelings for a couple years. Now that she's got some freedom to take her shot, she's going for it. No reason to be subtle here.

Also I'm liking the dynamic between the leads. Both having their own experience with the supernatural and both coming out of it changed people.

So this is manga adaptation right? I liked the first episode but...could any manga readers tell me if there's any hope in hell of this anime adapting this story all the way to the end?

No, because the manga is on going, so there is no end.
From the look of things. It is doing various short stories first, then save the first big story arc for the anime closure.
Which is the opposite order of the manga.

Ouch.

Okay here's a better question: would the end of that first big arc create a decent enough closure that one could even consider this season quite well as a standalone story?

Double ouch.

Well that does it for me then. As much as I liked the first episode, I'm not interested wasting my time on an inconclusive story. I'm better off just binge-ing it before its continuation (if it gets one)

[EDIT]

In case anyone is wondering, I've not gone crazy - I was responding to a post that has now been removed, presumably because it was too spoilery.

The manga is a novel adaptation.

Fun fact: apparently, novel readers call the MC "Iwanaga", but the manga readers call her "Kotoko-chan". I guess the manga brings her physical cuteness more to the front.

It started as a novel, but manga ended up with more progress.
So the position got reversed.

The answer is yes and no.

It's not inconclusive. Think of this as a (super natural) detective story. There are various cases (arcs) but they're mostly auto-conclusive. So the anime will presumingly adapt the main arc from the novel which is finished. You can watch it just fine.

Whelp looks like I'm picking up this manga. That was a deliciously strong start. I can tell that this is the sort of story that lives or dies on its writing and character dynamics, so here's hoping it keeps it up.

Heck the first episode reminded me of Seishun Buta Yarou, only with more blood and gore, and that's a good thing.

And with the relationship dynamic flipped where it's the female lead more enamored with and open about their feelings for the male lead .

First arc ends with the big reveal that sets the overall storyline
