Another show I started scanning through in hopes of finding candidates for the top rotation. After two episodes, I haven't taken any.
But I am getting interested in the show. I originally skipped it because it was a mecha show, and you all know how I feel about those. But so far it's telling an interesting story, about a pretty admirable character. And despite the collection of cute girls (five so far, plus a couple of minor characters) it doesn't seem to be heading into harem territory.
Misao, Tomo's red haired companion, is the most interesting thing in the show so far IMHO because the story behind her looks to be key to what's going on. They're hinting at it already.
UPDATE: The first plot arc ends with ep 3, and unfortunately it looks like they're not going to sustain the parts I liked the most so far.
And I did get one nice cheesecake shot out of it:
UPDATE: OK, Ep 4 wasn't bad. I'm willing to keep going for a bit longer.
UPDATE: End of ep 5, and it feels like the show is in a rut. Like so many shows based on a series of light novels, it feels episodic. And I think I don't care any longer.

The bad guy's mech shows up in ep 2. The good guy's mech shows up in ep 3. And as to what makes them work? A mixture of phlebotinum and magic, with a touch of human sacrifice.
The chick whose picture I posted is the girl with the biggest breasts in the school. She's shy. She's very rich. She isn't actually human; it turns out she's an akuma but she doesn't seem to be evil. She's actually rather nice. She's the moe one.
But as of the end of ep 3 she just got given a key to Tomo's home. Plus the bad-girl sempai has one. And thus it is that we see the beginnings of a harem.
Oh, and the ghost is still around. That makes three.
