I haven't played the game, but I know that it has multiple endings and this being a 13 ep show, we're probably only going to get one. So there's that...

Ep 3 was pretty cool. I stupidly laughed at the word 'cracker' the first few times it was brought up. I hope Daichi gets a chance to shine with his Avatars soon... I'll give him mondo points for hijacking a track and crashing it into the creature in ep one, but he's been pretty lame ever since.
Spoiler :
I really wish that the ep count was longer though, since even without playing the game things feel a bit rushed. Killing off Keita just doean't leave as much of an impact when we just met him in that episode, and the boss fight could have been quite a bit more epic. I'm still enjoying it quite a bit, however.

Oh, also Sentai licensed this today, so thats cool.

You might want to play the game first. I'm assuming that they are going to go with the canonical ending, and you are going to basically get the gist of the power that fuels all of the potential endings.

Episode 5 gave it a great start I like where this is going.

Spoiler :
Now it's character introduction and the beginning of the actual plot.

I like how the made the characters look badass in this episode At first I was wondering where this was going, but now I can see.

I love it when animes starts of slow and confusing a little and then release the plot in a later episode :D

To me the characters in this series are too stereotypical and not really interesting. You have the stereotypical main character who wants to save everyone, you have his best friend who is useless for the most part and telling the MC to save himself. And then you got the girl who is not really doing a whole lot either except crying or worrying about someone. None of the side characters are interesting either.

I'll probably continue watching the episodes just as time-killers but I'm a little disappointed.

Yea, I gotta agree. I was really excited after the first episode, but it kinda went down.
It might get better with the resistance making their entrance, though, I don't really like JPs so far.

Im getting more frustrated with Daichi then I probably should. He has this big ol' speech about wanting to protect Hibiki, and then when the time comes, he just stands there? The kid set himself up to be awesome in the first ep, and he clearly knows how to buy demons... so... buy them, dude. Io is leaps and bounds ahead of you.

Kinda disappointed in the direction Hibiki's personality has gone... bland selfless hero. Say what you will about the P4 anime, they did wonders with making Yu an enjoyable character. Hoping Hibiki makes a change soon.

But! Ep 6 wasn't bad at all. I like this new comedy duo that was introduced last ep, and the fight was pretty exciting too. Nice twist at the end considering I had forgotten how the last ep ended, heh.

I thought the ending of episode 6 was very interesting and exciting
