A Sister's All You Need (4-minute drop):  Four minutes was too much, and now I can't unwatch it.  Eww.

Hah, I did try to warn people about this.  But seriously, the rest of the episode is nothing like the beginning bit...sounds you quit right as it started to get interesting.

I got to the point where the girl says she wants to bone the MC every 10 second and then they kept doing it over and over till the end of the episode.
Noped right at episode 1.

So I just watched Dies Irae episode 0. I am so torn on this. So on one hand, this was a horrible spot for them to start from. Having an episode dedicated to this plot is not a bad idea...but it should have been in the middle of the series rather than at the beginning. Too many characters introduced at once, and too many spoilers given due to the fact that this story was not meant to come first. But at the same time, I'm actually impressed with how well they managed to condense the side story down to get all the important beats. There were a lot of details changed, but nothing too important (although not including Ruskalla's freakout was disappointing). I am more optimistic for the rest of the series being able to condense the important parts well. Less optimistic about the fights though.

Objectively look at this episode from a view point of a person who knew nothing about Dies Irae, and tell me how they can't think it was anything other then confusing garbage.  They cliff noted the episode in a way that  almost  all of the context was lost.  The episode left a very bad impression and is not well received anywhere.

And I think a lot of that problem could have been fixed by putting it mid way into the season rather than right at the start as a lot of the stuff should get explained in later episodes. Maybe once we get to episode 1, it will turn out I am completely wrong and the abridging they have to do will make it completely impossible to parse. *shrug*

So Dies Irae episode 1...I like it better than episode 0. They hit everything that I think they should have hit from the section they covered. I'm really not sure how parsable it will be for someone who doesn't know the series though. I think it should be, but I'm not really able to separate myself from my knowledge of the VN enough to say for sure.

I suppose I'll just have to wait to see what Kevadu thought.
