Is there a worse anime that goes to shit immediately after the first episode than this?
It was fine. Not great, but fine. And red was best girl.
First episode wasn't the best thing in the world, but every other episode is much worse.
The first episode drew you into the story and made you feel for Kotoura. Then they dropped all that and turned it into slice of life comedy. If you want to make a slice of life comedy, then make one, but by starting it with a huge tearjerking drama episode you turn away the comedy lovers only to piss off the drama fans when you promptly switch genres part-way into your series.
They should have made this the uniform of her final school. Much better than the generic Sailor Fuku she ends up wearing.
First might me a stretch. But the second most certainly.
