Didn't know what to expect, but it seems pretty awesome. It's got what seem to be pretty cool characters, ghosties, crazy magic dudes, guns, and a giant robot thing. Looking forward to the next episodes!

I just finished the 1st episode of this and I must say.. It's very interesting. I can't really make an accurate assumption on this yet till I see a few more episodes because I'm still trying to figure out what's going on after watching it. All I got out of it was a 3 way war.

I must say that all I got out of this was: Whaaaaaaat??

Seriously, there should be a limit to how much stuff is allowed in one episode. I think there was ~10 character intros; minimum 3 factions of characters; magic, guns and sci-fi looking powers. (not including assassin/ninja looking powers, or in the future mecha style fights)

Even though there was so much going on though, I found most of it fairly typical on it's own anyway. Although, the robot design was unique.

I'm simple minded.. what can I say. I mean, I could grasp a lot of what was happening, but to me, the characters introduced in the first episode could end up dead and insignificant 5 episodes in. I don't necessarily take characters for granted unless they're in 3/4 of the series altogether if its a 13 episode season. The only exception to that is Kamina from TTGL.. and well, we know what happened to him .

Also, the magic, guns, explosions, etc aren't really what make a good series for me. Those are just additional components to the story. Character development along with an exceptional story is what gives me a good watch. My top 5 holds all of that true.

Just finished first Ep. It sort of reminded me of FMA with their costumes and the use of magic. I think it did a pretty good job of setting up overall.

I didn't really get the whole escalation of the situation and the cause of it. Hoping the next episode will enlighten me.

this could be awesome or totally fail. I'm thinking awesome and based on the first episode this is my favorite this season so far. detail-wise the high school uniforms in this show are by far the coolest I have ever seen in any anime.... not that it makes or breaks a show I'm just saying.

ARGH!!!!!

But it looks like I'm wrong. I have a weird fixation with death and ghosts, not necessarily for horror. I was hoping that Misao would be the incarnation of a sibling or childhood friend that died a long time ago. But I don't think that's going to happen.

Bleh. It looks like it's going to take a turn towards Sci fi. It's 1 episode in and there's a crapton of fantasy jargon about extracting, projecting, darkness, religion, argh.

I expected this to be the soft kind of anime. What an overkill is this then.
I did think it was awesome somehow. Though i couldnt remember any of the names.
The orange haired girl is cute though :D
