    Shaft's new series about a hikikomori who follows her brother through a "Brother Surveillance Tool" on her computer. Meanwhile, her brother is in the middle of a relationship with the three Yagami sisters.

    The first half was pretty much what I expected, then I feel the chocolate world in the second half trolled me. I also love how the brother's face was never shown.

    Shaft's done it again

    I have absolutely no idea what I just watched, but I liked it.

    "Choco and Choco and Chocolate, what happened to Love and Elections?" That KoiChoco reference made me lol.

    Did I just completely miss any, or did we go an entire episode of a Shaft show without a head tilt?

    Her brother constantly covering up his face is quite amusing also.

    I'm trying to keep my anime watching fairly low so I don't know if I want to pick this up.

    Is it only okay or is it SUPER GREAT NOT WORTH MISSING!

    I'd say somewhere in between, but it's really hard to see where in the hell this series is going to go, especially after the second half of the episode.

    I'd have to see another episode before I really make up my mind. I feel pretty neutral about it right now. Its style kind of reminds me of the first episodes of Arakawa Under the Bridge and FLCL, but kind of in between them in terms of madcap insanity (this is probably a useless comparison - I have no idea if you've watched any of either of these series).

    I've seen FLCL but not Arakawa.

    Either way, I went ahead and watched the first episode after reading about some of the crazy moments. Like the whole world turning to chocolate and boob missiles. I really like it so far. It's interesting to watch since it's about Sasami watching her brother. Almost like there's TWO main characters. Hopefully there's enough crazy to keep my interests up.

    Now that you've watched it, tell me, did I completely miss any or were there no head tilts?

    I wasn't necessarily looking for them but I didn't notice any.

    In that case, something is not right at all. Perhaps they were all head tilted out after Nekomonogatari? That series is probably the worst offender as far as head tilts go.

    Well that was completely amazing. I was honestly not expecting anything like the second half to happen. But it made me laugh so its all good.
    And her brother is doing a Wilson!

    Well, this sounds... uniquely deranged. Okay, not "uniquely," but deranged. I'll have to hear more about this series before I make a decision to keep up with it, though.

    Since the screencap was in that article, isnt this line a reference to something else, or am I just going crazy?

    Charizard Champion#06 Spiral Warrior

    I believe Jolteon91 mentioned this before.

    Still not sure what it is though.

    Oh, okay. I thought it was from a song, or something, for some reason -- or otherwise something I'd be more likely to see referenced than that. It sounded really familiar, and I haven't heard of this until now.

    I probably had the best first episode this season. First half was lols. Second half was WTF lols.

    The first scene in episode 2 straight up explains everything that's going on in the show and all the randomness that happened last week. On one hand that's great that everyone's on the same page but on the other it kinda ruins the fun of finding out all that symbolism stuff. Oh well.

    Much more interact between Sasami and the three sisters this week. Very funny stuff. When the episodes plot finally hit I realized something. The setup is a lot like Haruhi Suzumiya except it's Haruhi who has to stop Kyon from figuring out what's going on.

    Oh, and there was a cameo from that one voice actress that Shaft likes to use all the time. The one who does Yoshinoya-sensei's voice in Hidamari Sketch. She was the game's tutorial voice lady.
