I'm not generally a big fan of shoujo, but I really liked this first episode. I never really realized how much of a signature style this studio had until I saw the first piece of promo art and thought of Natsume, Baccano!, and Durarara!! immediately. Overall, they do a very nice job with the visuals, as usual. There's not much that requires spectacular animation, and there are some shoujo visual gag tropes that oversimplify the visuals that I don't exactly care for, but they never really bothered me, either. Looks like this will be the first series of the season that I'll be following.
