Important Pages

When editing the wiki (particularly episode and volume pages) it's helpful to use this section as a reference guide.

Locations
When adding locations, don't forget to add parent locations. For example, when adding Japan to an episode or volume, Earth should also be added. Locations appearing in flashback sequences generally don't count.

Recurring Pages: Earth,

Objects
Objects should be specific rather than general, like Natsu's Scarf instead of just Scarf or Purgatory Armor instead of Plate Armor. General objects are being removed from the wiki.

Recurring Objects: None

Concepts

Common: Humans, Flashback, Hikikomori, Simulcast, Japanese Honorifics, Manga Iconography,

Specific: None

I just saw the first episode of the series and it is pretty weird. The first part introduces the relationship between the brother and the main character, which by the way is a bit intense (but not unexpected given the premise). The second part is an epic battle between mounds of chocolate and 3 sisters. I guess I'll find out what that chocolate plot line is in the next episode if I ever see it. The show is definitely similar to Haruhi and the animators probably knew it too. They even included a reference to that show by making one of the characters do the Haruhi dance.

The animation was good and I could see why people respect SHAFT, the studio behind this anime.

When I first watch the episode, I was so lost. 2nd episode clears things up a bit by explaining that Sasami has this god like power that can bend reality of some sorts. Sasami's older brother has the same voice as Jiraiya from the Naruto series.

Only watched two episodes so far. Apparently the plot is that Sasami somehow got the power of the Japanese deity Amaterasu, some things happened that we don't know of yet, and she got rid of her god-power, but they just ended up in her brother's body by mistake (that Tsukuyomi surname probably has some significance) and now he's changing the world without realizing it. The three Yagami sisters are magical girls who are sent to clean up the messes that the gods unleash on the world (Japan?) because of Sasami or her brother. That's all I got so far.
