Gen'ei wo Kakeru Taiyou - First Impression - Psychologically Dark

The only reason I bothered downloading this was due to the character art reminding me of Disgaea. I didn't know what to expect but I was surprised with the amount of psychological thrills that came from Gen'ei wo Kakeru Taiyou.

Akari is a bright girl who uses tarot cards to do readings and whatnot for people as it was passed down by her mother. She lives with her aunt and uncle and works for a fortune telling group. Everything bright and cheery, until some really messed up things start happening. A distortion on the screen, images of blood flashing, monsters and even a dead body come out of nowhere. There was even a similar situation that reminded me of Another, where a car's e-brake is somehow lowered and causes the car to almost run over Akari.

There is even a moment of deja vu where the same event happens twice but with a drastic change. All of these mysterious events really grip your attention and lure you into the show. Near the end a bit of a magical girl fight occurs, and all of the sudden I am reminded of season one of Symphogear. Things are pretty interesting with Gen'ei, but I don't know how well they will be able to follow up on the thrills of this episode and whether or not this will become a silly magical girl fight similar to Symphogear season 1.

I am very interested to see where this show is going, and what exactly is happening because I am totally confused, but in a good way. The animation and visuals are incredibly colourful and still remind me of Disgaea. The events really grip your attention and is a great way to start off the show, now we will have to see whether or not the psychological events continue or whether this goes downhill with loli magic fights.
