S.ifr first episode was actually good, just like the first episode of Zwei.
Btw, why THE FUCK didn't they do Otome and them OVAs the same way as HiME? I thought the battle royal in HiME was the awesome part of the series, not the shitty "OMG UGLY OLD MOSNTERS AND MEN INVADE SCHOOL MUST SAVE FRIENDS"-part, which was boring and generic.
But in Otome there was hardly any real conflict between the main girls.
Epic lesbians blowing the shit out of each other is where it's at.
