Re: Episode 1
Let's go self-plagiarized stream of consciousness for first impressions.
No!!! Don't throw out all your toys!
That was a rather... unique first encounter. Loved the sakura (I like cliches)
OP is trippy. Song starts at neutral--can I have the amazing promo PV op instead?
There are a lot of cute shots of Rikka and not-Rikkas in the OP--but the style is just so off putting
Rikka casts "open!" Rewinds. Rewinds again. This is so awesome! If I still took the metro, It'd totally try this (not really).
Rikka's smirk is so awesome/cute! Mou ikkai!
Annoying friend is already starting to annoy me... Grr. Don't understand the whole go to school check out girls thing.
Someone get Rikka an online roleplay account!
Yuuta is kind of childish in his desire to act like an adult.
ED will have to grow on me. I infinitely prefer the PV
Overall, Rikka was adorable and the show was funny/cute.I have mixed feelings about Yuuta. He was cute at times and while I liked him helping Rikka move, I thought he could be a bit more nice/understanding. Hopefully, he grows to embrace that being different is OK and not Rikka growing to become normal.
I enjoyed the first episode. The second time Yuuta hit Rikka kind of bothered me (even though it was clearly over-exaggerated, painless cartoon violence). I'm not necessarily concerned with having mixed feelings about Yuuta since many male leads start that way in KyoAni adaptions (but,as they change, I eventually grow to like them).
But wow, the PV OP/ED were god-tier and these are OK at best. This may be the first time I'll be buying a aniCD for the b-side...
Clannad is Life, Da Capo is Pure Love, Higurashi is Ethics, & Tori no Uta is the National Anthem.
The ones who will have the last laugh are the earnest and the honest.
