I'm not sure if I liked it or not... The anime has style, I cannot deny it, the fights were crazy, but entertaining. Crazy is the word that describes this anime... Everything happened one thing after another without much explanation and in a quick succession. I don't like when I don't understand what is happening and why, so it is a point against it, but the style added some points. I'm going to continue watching, probably it will explain things better later.
Some VAs are in Gintama too, and they even remind me of the characters they are voicing in the series, it's been a while since I had heard Sakaguchi in a anime.
Episode was crazy indeed, everything was too sudden.
I enjoyed it a lot actually! Reminded me of Cowboy Beebop in some ways.
AH! I see why!Quote:
Viva la crazy!

After episode 2, I'm watching this to the end! This is really good!
I am a little confused over what Watch did... did he project images (of the monkey) into the eyes of the kidnappers?

Watched episode 1 last night. I'll watch the second episode tonight but my hopes for this series fell pretty far.
Right now, it's seeming like another of those BONES anime that shows off the studio's amazing animation talent but fall short in direction and story. The episode looked awesome but it explained things that didn't need explaining and didn't explain a lot of things which did.
It seems like for every Fulletal Alchemist:Brotherhood, Eureka Seven, and Soul Eater BONES creates 10 RahXephons.
The second episode was much better than the first, I understood everything that was happenning and it was awesome.
They gave some important explanations and I'm fine with them so far, I will continue watching because the fights are good and somewhat innovative and the characters are pretty likeable, including the protagonist, which is the most likeable ordinary person I've seen in animes, probably. It was funny when he ended up totally injured because Libra guys cannot restrain themselves. XD
I was thinking of dropping it, but I changed my mind after this episode. It is safe for now.

And another Gintama VA joins the cast.
Better than the first one, his eyes are not limited to the past and future, nice ED.
I'm late, but it is better than nothing. XD
This episode was vague like the first one, but more interesting because of the match of chess (or whatever it may be), the conversations and all were interesting. I still don't know why, but I like this anime and I don't intend to drop it.
The beginning of the episode 3 was a bit boring but the prosfair's game was entertaining & good. They keep throwing so many things and just lets our imagination fill in the gaps. The introduction of the White was useless in the episode 2 and we don't know much about her in the episode 3 since it was all about Klaus Von Reinherz and what kind of man he is. One thing is sure, White isn't a ghost (she does appear in the pic) but she is maybe a "ghost of the past". The preview of the Ep 4 look good
the Ending is good too:
This is probably one of the top 5 anime of this season. It has style , soundtrack, characters and story. It also feels really unique. I hope it continue on this path.
Well, the story continues confusing, but I'm ignoring this part since episode 2...
Episode 4 and 5 were crazy as always, things happen out of nowhere and Leo ends up in trouble.
I liked the fight with the vampires, but episode 5 was gold comedy with that girl... Her voice was annoying, but funny and the way that Leo pleaded to be saved from that crazy girl was priceless, but her advices served for something... The last scene was sweet...
The episode 5 was fun and CRAZY ,
I really like that crazy Loli Aligula, the contrast between her personality and how she feels she's just doing the right thing (Pure love) was good. She basically redefines the definition of Yandere in this episode with her ways of thinking (The Ketchup scene was creepy...). One of my favorite scenes with: http://a.pomf.se/xcqqkl.webm I hope she appears more lately!
I didn't expect Feels from a burger scene with the episode 6...
The OST was really beautiful and the ending pretty good. I think nej' remembered him at end

i almost forgot:
Gave this series a shot. I was pretty surprised. There's a whole lot of random craziness that keeps things interesting. Behind that there's a plot somewhere, even if its rather confusing at times. And it definitely also has its moments. The characters are entertaining. It also has a great soundtrack.
Caught up. It became much better, I found it too random at first but it's now one of my favorite of this season. The tracks are great, I was surprised to see that the composer was a newcomer.

Nice flashbacks, Mary had no reason to believe Blank, and she died... Maybe that was her wish all along. Did she die after talking to Sonic or he killed her after she gave him Leo? I a confused.
For a second, I though that the entire episode was going to be a flashback. So...she betrayed Leo, and the Collapse has begun anew. I'm also a bit confused about the sequence of events, was she just shot or was she murdered long ago. When you're jumping between the past and present things often get confused.
