Will start the R-15 article later(after work). Anyone willing to help? Or did no one watched the show, thinking is another pointless, fan-servicy, ero-anime? It's actually quite good: academy of geniuses = Superpower Lottery. It's actually To Aru Majutsu no Index in a smaller scale without the super powers.

Oh and we got a case of Ho Yay: The protagonist and his mathematician friend.

If you're going to make a show where the main character says that society is too uptight about ecchi, don't censor everything. If you're going to be so prudish as to censor bra shots, you've made the whole point of your show nonsensical.

Might be true... If the whole point is about his ero-works... Sadly not. evil grin

Because he actually writes DIFFERENTLY, when he sees that clarinet girl. First, he wrote about her in a very non-ero romantic yet surreal way. Then after that, a Mahou Shojo! XD

Plus please be reminded of Governor Ishihara's Anime and Manga ban in Tokyo. The censors are, I think, in compliance with the ban.

^^Nah, just badly, badly planned. Still, it looks like the most censored show of the season. I'll probably wait until the uncensored release, but honestly I can probably replicate this show by finding any other anime about a high school boy that gets into wacky scenarios because everyone thinks he's a pervert, and randomly switching between watching it and watching actual hentai.

^You might have a point about the ban if I hadn't just watched two naked girls wrestle in a bath together, with the only censoring being their hands and arms covering their nipples.

^Oh, Iroha. You tell us not to ship HanaMi, and then you go and do something like that.

...Now that I think about it, Softenni was very heavily censored, too.

Well that's because Softenni is border hentai. And I cannot see a proper plot on it, for five episodes. So I guess it's just cash bait when the Blu-Rays are out.

But LO! Expected Spiritual Successor to Softenni, Ro-Kyu-Bu, has drama, enough to make me shed a few tears.

So let's all hope that this anime is not just a fan-service anime.

Well, that was...ok...ish. I guess. The censorship was pretty annoying though.

Voice cast is almost entirely new, so nothing to really say. Main guy is whatever, the girls have nice designs, but can't say much about them yet. Speaking of designs though.

These character designs looked really familiar, so lets see, Fujita Mariko, did the character designs for Kampfer, Campanella and Strain (among others), which explains a good deal about it. But there is something else about them that really seems familiar. The original designs are by Fujima Takuya, who did the art for the Negima Neo manga and, the...AH HA! He did the art for Nanoha Vivid! Which explains why Einhart is in this show.

It really is like a Superpower Lottery. Only it's Genius replacing Superpower.

hmmm...the censorship is a bit annoying...and most characters don't look too remarkable.

On the other hand, the camera girl(Raika?) and that guy who's good at math do look interesting. I'll...mostly be watching this series just for those two.

I still maintain that R-15 is this season's Astarottes Toy. I've only seen one episode, and the way he acts around his love interest makes me d'awwww.

[up]Haters gotta hate. And critics gotta..... criticize?

No matter. Like most 'critics' out there, what started out as a reviewing quickly turned into an attitude-biased criticism fest, which falls a notch lower from the threshold worthy of being called rant and or bash

It's only just ep-1 and that reviewer SERIOUSLY drew too much from every minute of the scenes. Lack of patience much? Even if I was pissed from from PM Madoka it took me till about ep 7 for me to drop it. If the reviewer wanted to drop the show he/she shouldn't have made a mile out of an inch, a mountain out of a molehill to blatantly ask for others not to watch R-15

Really, despicable reviewing. Another 'critic' born into the abhorrent indexes of Internet

Those who doesn't like anti-gravity tits will forever be a DFC lover. Likewise those who think the show's worthless due to the title will forever be immature. LOLZ. Don't judge a book by it's cover, I almost missed To Aru Majutsu No Index if not for that rule.

critics gotta..... criticize

Well, yeah, it's kind of in the job description.

I've found s1e1 to be a fairly reliable reviewer—it's best when a critic wears their heart on their sleeve so you can check their biases against yours. And given that the main objective of the site is specifically to watch the first episode of every new anime that has a sub of some kind, yes, she is going to base her opinion on said first episode. With a lot of the borderline ones, or if she gets informed of a Nonindicative First Episode, she'll go back and try the second one for comparison purposes.

Which is why I linked to multiple reviews so you'd get a better feel for s1e1 in action.

That said, I have thoroughly enjoyed series s1e1 has panned (Bakuman; the strong supporting cast and insider look at manga creation trump the sexism for me) and been much less impressed by series she thumbs-upped (Michiko And Hatchin, I grew to strongly dislike both female leads.)
