Maji De Watashi Ni Koi Shinasai :

So, either this is the most Nonindicative First Episode ever or someone was drunk when they called this "Slice of Life".

Because right now it's more like a cross between Dog Days and Baka Test, except y'know... Crappy. (moreseo than the above at any rate)

That's pretty impressive in its own right.

Still not watching it due to all the 10-bit MKV hype. Still need to find a converter for 10-bit MK Vs

hmm

I like it, actually. Pretty fun and something you can turn your brain off too. I like it better than Baka Test or Dog Days.

It's like Sengoku Basara in a High School setting.

I took a look at the manga first, so I can say this. It is nothing like the manga. There were no weapons in the manga for 1 thing, It was a slice of life in the manga. Though some of the main cast were great fighters.(though they did not use weapons.)

Doesn't sound like a big deal to me.

Blurrggghh.
Well...a series can be slice of life even with weapons. Look at Angel Beats!, for example. Okay, that's probably the only example but still.

Not a big deal but its nothing like its source is the point I was making.

Also they really should have used the first chapter for the first episode would have made more sense. Plus Yukie (the sword user.) did not show off her smile.

Also Momoyo likes tetris

Also for what I do know there could be weapons but only 7 chapters are out now and I have not seen any.

So I guess this was a pilot episode to get you hooked on the action and the second will begin a gigantic flashback to how they met? And where they found/made a transforming robot with its own lightsaber and refrigeration unit? And how a girl can self-destruct her own body but only damage her opponent?

Having said that, this was not as bad as I was led to believe so far.

Actully of the 9 mains 7 of them are childhood friends called the Kazama family. Chris and Mayu are the only ones who are new to the group.
Self-Esteem Team!
So does that mean the robot was also a childhood friend? Or is it like Mechazawa, where no one believes he's a robot?

Actully I have no clue about the robot. I did not count him.

He was not part of the group when they were kids. But he came before Chris and Mayu.
The board seems to have eaten my post. In brief:

It's based off of a VN/eroge, not the manga.

Really should fall under Harem/Comedy, rather than Slice of Life.

First episode seems to have been the Bad Ending for Momoyo's route.

Just played the prologue for the VN.

Harem comedy is kinda the best way to describe it, but it doesn't really fit - Neither, really, does Slice of Life, though. It seems to mostly be a story about a bunch of friends who go to a rather crazy high school together. Four guys and three girls who've been best friends for years, plus the two new female transfer students who live in the same dorm as the protagonist. All of the girls are warriors, while the guys usually play second fiddle whenever a fight comes up. Weapons are used in the VN, and each of the girls is skilled with her own particular type.

The protagonist is the trickster intellectual type, and he's actually pretty good as far as eroge protagonists go. Going by the prologue, they guys almost get more attention than the girls do - I'm guessing that changes once you break out onto the actual routes, but they're much more than just Those Two Guys this time around.

I don't know how the story's actually going to unfold. The prologue hints that there's some more serious stuff that comes up at some point, and a poke around the translator's website suggests that there's a route for each of the girls, a 'True Route', and various side routes. It also seems like it's going to be fairly long - The prologue was about five hours, and the overall length figure is given as somewhere around 40-ish. I'd need to see what they do with episode two before calling this one way or another. This could be an adaption that's very easy to screw up, especially if they emphasize the wrong things or mess with the protagonist too much. I'm guessing that they did the start that they did because it's a nice way of showing how ridiculous the school setting is - Lots of Rule of Funny and whatnot, and it does a good job of showing each of the major characters at what they're best at.

  • I am now watching this series.*

Just to add, but this episode heavily reminds me Mx0's class battles arc. Which I really loved. Ah, a large scale battle is way more preferable vs Baka Test's classroom combat.

This show is actully pretty good. I think there is running gag were capt solves the problem off screen. Also the little Horse thing that Mayu has. Thats just vantriliqism.

Also holy hell its Guile Err Gale
