This looks like it can go either way.......characters from the PV seem to almost mirror those of Grisia no Kajitsu..........For now, I'll pick this one up.

Still have like 3 or 4 things to catch up from the last season so just this and the 3 obligatory sequels........

It doesn't look very good but since it is NoitaminA I'll probably end up watching it.

The first episode was a lot better than I thought it would be. It kind of bounced back and forth between being clever and being shameless. I did get some laughs though, And I really liked Chiruchiru --er I mean Eriri. Interested to see what way this ends up going, but not a bad start.

episode 1.... wow this is very meta. i like where this is going.

.......... and then i didn't and it got epically cliche.

oh, they're gonna solve this beating around the bush harem thing right away, interesting.

............ and then they didn't showing that they are just gonna string us along as normal, fantastic.

only because i have faith in noitaminA will i give this series 3 episodes.

Yeah, episode 0 or whatever started off like it was going to be full of metahumor and fourth wall breaks kind of like a less subtle version of Fruit of Grisiasa's early episodes, but then after about five minutes that all went flying out the window and it became a standard harem episode.

I didn't find the metahumor especially clever when it was present. I mean having a character speak in blatant exposition and then pointing that fact out isn't all that funny, especially when it is done several times in a row. However, even the weak attempts at metahumor were preferable to the rest of the episode which was exactly the generic stuff the first part of the episode was trying to poke fun at. I'm not sure why it gave up on the humor so fast, but it's kind of sad that the end of the episode does the exact kind of exposition that the start of the episode was mocking and was apparently serious about it.

Not a good first impression. The art was pretty enough I guess, but other than that this episode was bland.

This show has an unfortunate abbreviated title. You can't look for it without mostly finding stuff about a certain ultimate weapon girl instead.

^ When I googled it, I got nothing but this show come up and "did you mean Saikano" which I also looked at and seemed to be some kind of romance manga?

Unless of course there's some other abbreviation...
