Quick Thoughts: it’s a bit upsetting how Karneval doesn’t have that IMPACT in each episode but still make me want more. The ‘mystery’ or suspense in the series doesn’t get any better but is still interesting enough to keep me on my seat and finish the entire episode enjoying its beautiful visuals and sexy character voices. With not much development on either Nai and Gareki or even on other characters, Karneval is still a series I’m looking forward to seeing a bit more improvements later on in the season.

Looks like Karneval will never fail to look as fancy and flashy as the first episode. Similar to how Karneval started, this second episode was able to successfully follow up its flashy shounen style.

Quick Impression: To my expectations, Karneval certainly didn’t let me down with its action pack first episode and the introduction of Nai (Shimono Hiro), Gareki (Kamiya Hiroshi), Tsukumo (Endou Aya) and Hirato (Ono Daisuke). I really like the opening scene of Nai and Karoku (Hoshi Souichirou). Their relationship will probably one of the key points in this series since Nai is in search for Karoku to begin with. Aside from the story, what also captured me in Karneval is its outstanding set of cast and really beautiful art and animation. That flawless fight scene at the train as well as Gareki and Nai’s escape from the mansion were both really great.
All in all, Karneval has really proven itself (to me) worth watching. Being the series I looked forward to the most this season, I’m glad that Karneval didn’t failed my expectations and brought a nicely paced opening episode with those fabulous looking characters in a shounen-like series. Now I really can’t wait for the next episode. Yogi will be introduced :3
