Trickster First Impressions (1): Uhh...maybe?

I'm not sure about this one. I'm attracted to the mystery genre, but so far, the first episode hasn't offered all too much. I think I'm going to stick with it to see where it goes, but I'm a bit doubtful so far. I have to say, though, the most noticeable aspect of this first episode was the music...I really enjoyed it. So at the very least, I'm getting a good soundtrack for this season, right?

As for the episode itself, the main thing that bugged me was the shield. If it's just constantly protecting Kobayashi, why does it cut stuff that tries to pass through? Is it forming on-the-spot and slicing the objects as it moves up towards the top? And while we're on the topic of Kobayashi, I get the feeling I'm going to get tired of his voice...

Also, it's common for me to not like a song, but be okay with its intro, but I'm going to do the opposite for the opening song of this series. I thought the intro to the song was shaky, but song itself ended up being okay. Ending song was less impressive.

There's symbolism going on here somehow, and I'm pretending I understand it.

This guy looks like he wants to be dead.

I wasn't expecting mecha in this have my attention.

Well, at least they do a cheap "zoom and enhance" trick with this scene. Aaaaand that's totally the reason I have this screenshot...nothing else at all.

Are Japanese conservatives considered to be on the "right" side of the political spectrum? Or is the translator purposely localizing this line? Wait...are conservatives on the right side of the political spectrum in other English-speaking countries too or is it just America? I don't know these things...

That's...totally Windows 10. Aww crap, are you telling me we'll have same desktop UI for next few years?

Whoa...did they just murder a random dog in the first episode? What's PETA going to say?

I'm not a huge fan of this sequence...but the music is excellent.

So, every object this guy has seen has been cut for getting close to the mystery boy, but he walks up to hand him the cider without fear of the same thing happening to him? How does that make sense?

This is going to get annoying, isn't it?

Well, that was a dumb promise.

I can't tell...did this guy just lose his leg?
