    Re: Glasslip

    Episode 1:

    That transfer student sure is a weird one... Then again Touko is not any different.
    Pretty much everyone there is in love with another person at the table. And somehow chickens are important...

    The fireworks were gorgeous... Gotta love this high level of animation quality.

    Well this might be interesting so it is a keeper for now.

    Best character in the cast and lively but kind of kicked to the side to focus on boring characters. Sadly its just overall boring with some dull antics like chicken raising and throwing romances left and right. Ill stay for him.

    OP and ED are also not very good visually or song wise.

    And on the visuals, why did so many scenes have the white glow on the sides of the screen, it was good the first time but for many minutes the effect just became really distracting.

    Re: Glasslip

    Time for my weekly dose of scenery porn. \o/

    First episode was nice--more focus on the characters than actual glass work than I would have imagined, and I had no idea chickens were such serious business.

    I don't know what to make of the new transfer student. When he met everyone else, it was like he stabbed someone to death and they all resented him for it. I like most of the characters so far, though I do feel like things are going to get pretty complicated on the romantic front very soon, especially of the episode preview is any indication.

    So far, it seems like Yana likes Yuki who likes Touko, who seems to have a thing for David. And then there's Hiro who may or may not have a thing for Sachi who didn't really speak much this episode. I wonder if Sachi has a condition or overbearing parents and that's why she's not hanging out with everyone as much.

    Either way, definitely looking forward to the next episode.

    Re: Glasslip

    I'm already in love with this anime and the fact that PA Works (which also made Nagi no Asakura) is taking care of this project it's fantastic, because I simply love their sceneries.
    As the first episode itself, we just have seen already who is in love with whom, and I must say that I'm already liking some of the supposed couples.
    Kakeru is a bit strange though. XD

    Re: Glasslip

    The random hostility towards Okikura looked a bit strange, but interesting character relations so far, which look to have progressed quite a bit in the first episode. I don't know what to feel overall yet, but there is a very strong VA cast to back up the rather nice art and romance promise. Enough to get some hopes, I think.

    Re: Glasslip

    The hostility towards David (I can't remember his actual name) seemed odd to me too, if not very random. I feel like Sachi knows him from somewhere, and Yukinari has a thing for Touko, so naturally he'd be defensive over another guy who she seems smitten about interacting with them. But I'm really interested in the link between him and Sachi.

    Haha, these stares, we can already visualize a love chart. I had sometimes the impression that the characters were actors, too much coincidences. Really, how did that firework led David to watch the main girl?

    OK episode, nothing special. I am almost sure the siblings are not blood related.

    Does that mean Sachi also has a thing for Yukinari or it's just sympathy she's showing?

    Was it confirmed that they are siblings?
    I thought they just live in the same house for some reason.
    I mean the girl is completely into the guy.

    Good question. Apart from her standing up, nothing has happened. So one could think she has a thing for Yuki as well.

    No. I just assumed they were, I don't even know their names, I only memorized David and Touko.

    Re: Glasslip

    Episode 2:

    Is it me or is their group rather awkward? I don't get the feeling that they are awesome friends. More like everyone is so tense... Glasses girl for exmaple who acts like Toukos mother... David who hasn't said one normal line so far. He is completely ambiguous.

    The we got that weird confession scene which was rather cute. Especially the answer. I feel a bit sad for the girl who has a crush on him...
    This all feels so forced and awkward... Dunno how to describe it with other words. Especially thanks to the weird voices from the future stuff.

    Re: Glasslip

    It has never been said they are awesome friends or anything. Hiro is referring to Yanagi as "-san", that's the proof. They are not close or anything. Well, maybe there are couple of people who are somewhat closer to each other within the group, but that's about it. If they were super awesome friends, Touko would have listened to lots of stories from Yanagi about her crush, not learn it on a spur of moment. Don't know what Sachi's deal is, and actually, I'm surprised that they had a "No dating" rule or something. I mean, what group of friends enforce such a stupid rule, unless they know they all have unrequited crushes on each other, which is oddly enough the case in this story, lol.

    So yeah, no point in looking at them as a group.

    Re: Glasslip

    Well, this show is full of....should I say surprises? XD
    It's just the second episode and we already had a confession, which was cute indeed, but I felt sorry for Yukinari, considering that probably he has been friend-zoned. LOL
    As for the rest, it seems like there's a supernatural element in this, that being the voice from the future, which in my opinion it's just going to make things even more difficult.
    In any case things are just getting interesting and I can't wait to see what will happen from now on between the members of this group.

    Re: Glasslip

    Supernatural eh? And it works better when they are together... why is Sachi so hostile to David and reminding her of that rule, I can't help but envisage Yuri now. I like how Yukinari made the presentations with David and still call him David .

    Hopefully there will be at least one canon pairing at the end of this one.

    It's kinda weird for a group of teenagers who have not solid teenagers to have rules like "No dating"(LOL) and two girls to have a discussion about love like that, considering to even leave the group if she is rejected IMO.

    Nothing happened really. The "Kya pervert" moment was funny but that's all. All we learned is that their feelings for each other are completely one sided, I am starting to like Hiro . The Yuri vibe is getting stronger.
