The plot sounds pretty vague but I will still watch this because it's from Bones.

Adult war veteran seeks new meaning in life now that his previous occupation is (currently) obsolete and a young girl helps him find his way.

Interest piqued.

Decided to watch this one as the silly person I am to see if my initial impression of what little I remembered from the material's changed and it really hasn't. In fact how this was adapted was incredibly poor and made everything significantly worse from the already lacklustre source.

Episode 1:

Episode 1:

I know I'm making a big deal out of nothing, but there was not a single spoiler in that spoiler tag. I mention this because I brought it up in another thread. If someone like myself is checking out a thread to see if a show is worth watching, it can be difficult. I never know what is actually a spoiler or not.

I thought this wasn't supposed to start until tomorrow? Maybe I just got the dates mixed up along the way.

Regardless, I wasn't expecting much and I knew next to nothing about this show going in, but I was fairly impressed with the first episode. They don't explain much about what's actually going on, but the action seemed pretty good and the characters are mostly likable.

Overall, I was happy with the first episode and I'm looking forward to getting more Chaika.

^exactly! i mean... that unicorn

as for explanations of what is going on... well honestly it's only episode one, i see a lot keep saying that and it's hardly a rule that the first episode needs to explain it all, it's more common to do that as they go on. Granted it probably wont ever explain but as i always say, got to give it a chance ^__^

Anyway, overall it wasn't too bad for me.

I wasn't even really planning to take this up, and yet here I'm...

Episode 1
I didn't really had a great impression from the PV, but it was actually not bad at all.
Maybe I gonna give this one a chance.
