Since this is going to air in 2 days time, I shall post it here in advance.
I saw the trailer and seems very promising, produced by Gonzo, I will take the time to watch it, even though my internet is crap.

It's like a post apocalypse anime. I don't know anything else besides that!

The premise of the series is interesting, so I'll give it a shot.

First ep was so so. A few things sort of bug me even the first opening scene. Probably will watch another ep or two before dropping.

The first ep was defiantly interesting. It looks like it could turn into something good.

I don't so much mind the opening scene, so much as the whole deal with lolis running the world. The bit where they had the loli on the PC chewing out the old guy from the third world country was moronic. I understand where they're going with the premise, but it's like the theme was created by a writer heavily under the influence of drug induced paranoia.

I can almost imagine the writer just sitting at a table with his editors passing a joint around going crazy about carbon emissions -_-"

At the very least the fights will be interesting, and gonzo is at least giving it a good budget. Otherwise...the premise just irks me.

I am not at all happy with this infusion of annoying/bland female leads in the last few seasons (kurokami, rideback, K-ON, Valkyria, and now this). I'm hoping she develops into an interesting lead, but right now... I'm not sure.

I actually like the premise, environmental/government control themes I'm seeing are ok so far. I just wish it would take itself more seriously (that little girl, the "man-eater").

I'm pretty stoked about this.
ep 1 was a nice set up with a seemingly interesting premise.
this could be really good.

From the looks of 2 episodes it looks like really interesting world setting that is not followed by interesting story. I mean theoretically "something" was going on this past 2 eps, but to me it sounded just like a bunch of "oh we have so many secrets" talks with a bit of fighting animation to wake viewer up. Still... the idea of carbon regulations and jungle in Tokyo is amusing enough to see whether it will pick the pace of story up, and turn into something worth the time.

I still find this very bland and boring. Sticking with it for only 1 more episode.
