Surprising show. I'll need more episodes to know if it holds up or if ends up flopping, though. In my interest list for the time being.

I have never felt as bad for a character after just 10 minutes then I did with this show. Unfortunately I don't think the rest of the series will be anything like the opening and it will just become a comedy harem/slice of life show.

Was expecting nothing, but the first ep was actually kinda promising. Followed for now.

I'm not sure how that turned into a comedy ...judging from the first part of the first episode, I saw her going crazy and killing everyone. Then for some reason it got funny ... I think I'll follow.

Sure, fall in love with the FIRST guy who is nice to you. Ok.

Being as cute as you are, you could probably do a tad better.
Almost as hard as fighting a Holy Paladin.

No she can't, because every person she tries to get close to ends up hating her. :l That and being ridiculed her whole life and suddenly having a person that doesn't despise her, would it really be a crime for her to desire any form of affection from him?

You see, most girls do, in fact, fall in love with the first guy that's nice to them.

Guaranteed, of course, that for most girls this happens in kindergarten or in first few years of school.

Ok, just started and watched the first 2 eps, I gotta say this series is pretty deep, definitely has serious elements to it with short breaks of eroness from Manabe.

I gotta say, Manabe is probably the first example of a "dumb hero" that I actually like. Most male protagonists are either completely worthless or as so 2-demensional they're just boring, Manabe is awesome.

that aside, this is the first series to actually evoke genuine sympathy from me for a character, definitely following this to the end. seriously, I just want to hug her each time I see Kotoura crying

btw, anyone else think the box was a metal gear solid reference?

ep 3,

holy shit manabe really is a badass. I'm betting he has a bit of backstory which explains why he acts the way he does, he's not just some ero-character. although that is a big part of his character (lol at the hospital scene and the ruined potential confession part).

but seriously, Kotoura is one of the most moe characters I've seen in a while in anime, the animation + her reactions and lines are all really well done.
