    Watched it and while overall the story seems like it could have potential, the first epi was only a 7/10 to me.

    The first episode seemed like the series would be completely off the mark from the manga. To much fan service and gags. Perhaps I'm just remembering the manga wrong, but I felt like it took itself a lot more serious while still providing a bit of fan service.

    I'll see how the second episode turns out and then decide if I want to continue watching, I guess.

    If it sticks to that genre, then it'll be alright. But yeah like what Apoca said it's a lil too much on the typical shounen anime stuff. I'm still watch it all though.

    the first real fight was the entrance fight ... you can see huge difference between manga and anime from that fight alone...
