「間違いだらけのプロローグ」 (Machigaidarake no purorōgu)

The 00 special was all good fun, but episode 01 is probably more true to form.

Yuri Kuma Arashi – 02

「このみが尽きても許さない」 (Kono Mi ga Tsukitemo Yurusanai)

Seiken Tsukai no World Break – 01

「転生せし者」 (Tensei Seshi Mono)
“The Reincarnator”

Of all the magical-fantasy-action-harem anime based on a light novels I’ve watched so far this season, this one may not be the worst, but it disappointed me the most. This first episode is an absolute mess.

Junketsu no Maria – 01

「完全なる乙女」 (Kanzen’naru Otome)

「百聞は一見に如かず」 (Hyakubun wa Ikken ni Shika Zu)
“A Picture Is Worth a Thousand Words”

It’s nothing to lose your head over, but if you’re in the mind for fun anime, then this first episode of Durarara!!x2 Shou is in the right neck of the woods.

Log Horizon 2 – 14

「カナミ、ゴー!イースト!」 (Kanami, Gou! Iisuto!)
“Kanami, Go East!”

There were interesting parts, but mostly it’s an episode full of Kanami-related infodumps that fails to flesh out any of the characters, save Kanami herself.

Yoru no Yatterman – 01

「世界は真っ暗闇」 (Sekai wa Makkura Yami)
“The World is in Total Darkness”

This is one that’s going under everyone’s radar, but seriously, you should all watch this right now. It’s ambitious, emotional, and funny just when it wants to be. I’d even go as far as to say this was the best first episode of the entire season.
