  1. That was actually a pretty cool setup for the series. I'm eager to see where this goes and how it's handled.

  2. Solid first episode. Love the premise, love the animation/art style, music is fucking awesome. I look forward to watching more in the future.

  3. Decent, but I'm not sure it did enough to set up the structure of the show?  I mean, we obviously know now that they're going on a quest to find mcguffins related to fandoms, but…how will they go about said quest?  What will the typical episode look like?  And why these two?  Finding a coin in the couch…eh, not really compelling?  Maybe funny, but not really compelling?

  4. Congratulations, Coins of McGuffin, you've ruined pizza! First Inside Out, and now YOU!

  5. The premise is really interesting. I can't wait to see where this goes. the Hype!
    (please have a Diva cameo. Please have a visit to Musical Hell. There's a Music coin for here's sake!)

  6. Well, this was reasonably funny, the premise seems intriguing and the theme song kicks ass. I'll definitely give this a shot.

  7. Now when you say EVERY fandom will be mentioned . . . if this show gets a big following you know SOMEBODY'S going to complain because "Oh, you didn't mention this semi-obscure anime that has a decent following and occasionally cosplayers"

  8. I have one minor piece of criticism for you guys. I will say I enjoyed this, and will keep watching to see where it goes, but I hope in the future you stop the head squishing/wiggling thing with every mouth movement. It just feels annoying and overkill, otherwise the animation is great. 🙂
