Episode 1
I just watched the first episode out of curiosity.
Well, it's okay I guess. But I don't really like the art though.

MC is kinda whiny and bland. Eh, I'll watch anyway.

Does anyone think this felt more shoujo instead of shounen?

^ From what I read on the net, the mangaka is well-known for its shouju drawning style.
However, this story is apparently shounen. It was published in Weekly Shonen Sunday.

Well, that's also the reason why I don't really like the character designs...
But the story seems somewhat interesting enough.

Hm. Never seen the manga, but I thought this was pretty good. Dunno the reason for the low rating though. And the fact that this aired 6 days ago... and there's only been 3 reps here xD

It only aired 2 days ago, or at least it was only subbed 2 days ago. I'm away to watch it now, though i'm not too confident that it will be any good.

The premise is kinda interesting, but there are many cliche moments towards the end of episode 1. I hope it doesnt turn into a 1-dimensional story.

Art seems fine to me. So far am not a big fan of the MC though
