DRAMAtical Murder Episode 1 (or DMMd)
My most anticipated anime this season because I love the VN and am curious to see how they'll execute the anime adaptation.
As I have already played and absorbed the full story in the VN, this first episode for me comes with no surprises but I was extremely pleased that it followed the VN rather well with some little changes here and there. For a first episode, DMMd is a hundred times better than Nitro+Chiral last effort which was the atrocious, badly adapted Togainu no Chi.
Seeing DMMd dynamically and moving brought a smile to my face it just feels more alive than looking at a static image. Though it does suffer some framerate issues during panning sequences.
The character design retains the absolutely impeccable and beautiful style of honeyalala but it's really not as beautiful and as clean as the VN.
The Rhyme sequence was also a very well animated.
Now I'm just wondering what route will they choose.
For those who haven't played the VN, the first episode might be confusing because it doesn't explain very much.
Also to note. There's no hint of Yaoi in this first episode. There's a bit of shonen-ai and good looking men but if you're allergic to that well I can't help you.
Chibi Aoba is sooo cute!
I will continue to watch it just to see how much they'll make it more awesome or how much they'll destroy it.
I just hope it's not the latter.
Woah~ Never knew you were a fan of BL games.
I run away at the sight of BL/Yuri tags :p
