Episode count should be more than 11.
Looking most forward to seeing the mekakushidan. Team Kano, Hibiya, Shin.
I wonder how will be this series, the anime will be based on the songs, right? I never watched something like that.

Has anyone else listened to the songs yet? Headphone Actor is my favorite, Ene is my favorite character. I can't wait for episode one!

Screen caps from episode one:
Can I just say Kano looked incredibly cute there, and Shintaro so hot legs and feet, why does he have to be in those stuffy pants, and his great room.
On a different note. After many months of waiting and following all the promo material, and the week to week CMs and voice actor reveals, and a pv last week its finally here and it exceeded all expectations I had for it . Easily second best start to the season for an anime. The opening discussion to pull us in, internal Shintaro dialogue with the visible genjutsus present all throughout his room to make us envious of it, and even Ene's witty commentary always, just really surprisingly entertaining.
Second half with the colouring employed for the key scenes, Kano's voice actor having a mighty fun time and even Kano the character himself just being all around lovable and hilarious with his comments and looks, with Seto chiming in too, kind of got to me to rewatch it a second time.
Good start with emotional ED. Also want the soundtrack as well.
Well, this is seriously going to be my favourite, not only for the fantastic art (SHAFT never disappoints), but also for the plot, which seems to be pretty interesting and also a bit dark.
Having said this, the first episode was really good and Ene is really an adorableand funny cyber girl; glad that she's one of the main cast.
As for the rest the MC was really unlucky to be taken hostage in the only day that he got out from his room. LOL
But I guess it was inevitable....
Was to understand something? WTF
I'm so shocked that I have to watch one more episode to understand what's the deal of this anime. XD
I want that Ene program too! Must be because of the camera but I had the impression to be her master .
So, the MC decided to go out to replace his keyboard and he encountered criminals, the last minutes were kinda confusing.
Liked it mostly because of Ene interactions with her master. Good episode.
Ene is cute, but annoying and as a computer program is a bit defective since she disrupts the user often. Too much inteligence is not necessary when it disturb the main function of the program. As an assistance I'd like someone more calm and wise, who doesn't get in the way so often.
Ah, it seems Nisekoi is the only Shaft anime on your list. Mekaku has more in common with Monogatari Series and Madoka Magica. Enjoy it for the dialog and visuals, let the story unfold across the course of the series.
I doubt this will be as good, Madoka and Monogatari are two of the greatest. I fanboy the songs, so my opinion isn't exactly the most reliable.
zOMG Asumi Kana was epic as Ene I can't wait for Kisaragi and Marry's intro.
I could've sworn that they just copied the city backgrounds from Monogatari...
Typical shaft animation. Although I have to say it was a bit... Boring. Too much stuff going on behind the scenes. Ene alone made this episode great though. Where can I such an awesome and cute AI?
Makes we wonder what is begind he program. I guess those other two guys have something like Ene too.

That idol is the biggest idiot ever... Kisaragi ate the textbook... Ahahaha.
I really like that art style in the flashback. Replacing other people with objects. Every "human" was leaving her. Shows how alone Momo really is. It also nailed the "center of attention" thing.
The insert song was also really nice. Momo...
So how is this all connected?
