Ouma Shuu is a 17 year old boy, who has a psychic power in his right hand. He can use the power Ability of King to extract tools or weapons from his friends. He has been avoiding making troubles for others but his life has changed when he met a girl Yuzuriha Inori, one of the members of a resistance guerrilla Undertaker.

Um, well, that was definitely an episode.

It was waaay too faced paced, it was kinda hard to care for any of the characters when it jumps around that fast. Shu's personality also seemed a little...inconsistent. Hopefully it slows down a bit next ep.

On the flip side, the animation was pretty freaking awesome, it got very smooth towards the end <3

Not gonna lie...I think Im the only person in the world who thinks Inori is weird looking >>

ah k, I can see basic similarities with Code Geass :/ Anyway I would have dropped it after seeing this first episode if it weren't for 2 things:
1. Production I.G ZOMGANIMATION. Typical nice motion usage as expected from this studio during the action scenes.
2. Exciting insert songs and music.

I see this as one of the most promising shows of the season. :)

Hmmm.... not too sure what to think here.

I mean, I LIKE IT BECAUSE ITS PRETTY TO LOOK AT. But I don't know what the hell is going on. Is Inori magical? Or is it science-gone-haywire? I'll give it three more eps to see if it gets me hooked. But so far, I think it's good.

Also, "Ouma Shu"? As is the city from "Avatar: the Last Airbender" Anybody else catch that?

2 episodes in and I'm sold.
Spoiler :
Now that he's back in school, maybe the pace of the show will slow down just a bit. Things were actually starting to get too intense.

Eh...Im pretty disappointed in this. Still feels rushed, still dont really like the designs and characters, and on tope of that we have some randomly placed fanservice. The only thing I enjoyed about ep 2 was, again, the animation a the end. Ill give it a couple more eps, but I'm pretty sure this will be the first show I drop in a while. :/

Am I the only one who thinks the pacing is ok in this? :uhoh: I actually like it being fast and intense since it leaves a better impact. Though it's nice to see him back at school and

his reaction to Inori being the transfer student. XD

Watching: EPISODE 2

AHA! Inori reminds me of Kururu from Air Gear (manga) because of the messy pink hair. Oh how i wish i saw her in real life.....................I mean, anime.
Anyways, i'm starting to like it. Although The "Kings Power" could've been explained a little better.

I like how it didn't have that cliche of
Spoiler :
Gai: JOIN US!
Shu: OKAY I'LL JOIN YOU!
Gai: AND HEEEEEEEEEEEERE WE GO!

Now its gonna be like
Spoiler :
Gai: JOIN US!
Shu: No
Gai: Okay, we'll send Inori to lure you into our group then...
*insert sequences of relationship-building and bonding*
Shu: OKAY, FINE!

I wonder when the 3rd EP comes out on Funimation.com :book:

No, you're not alone, I like it, too. I'm so tired of the typical slow-paced, cicada-soundtrack'd, waiting-for-something-to-happen anime that get punctuated with a few spots of activity. I'm enjoying this.

Those tend to work well for the mind when you can't sleep. :ying:
