I'm excited for this! Anything by KEY will get my attention (inlove)
And of course, I shouldn't be too surprised. Key seems to have a thing about stories involving some fantasy/supernatural from what its TV Tropes page says. So I'm not going to be bothered knowing about that. That might make the story much more interesting for me. Who knows.
EDIT: So according to people who were at the preview screening (bloody Japan gets all the nice things) it was a good first episode.

The beginning had a nice start. Full of action, comedy and some heartwarming memories. I can kind of half-guess some stuff due to that spoiler earlier but I'm not sure.
There were a LOT of girls in the opening that we haven't seen yet so I'm looking forward to them. Rin's adorable so far.
The animation is nice, not nearly as good as the stuff KyoAni's pumping out today but it looks well enough to be something they made in '06. Which is fine. The comedy is at that same level too. I was expecting more nostalgia vibes from Clannad but I didn't get that many, unlike when watching Kanon.
That said, when Rin got that "achievement" I lost my shit. Best part of the episode.
That one girl, Sasami Sasasegawa Sassafras Sarsaparilla, looks a lot like Kagami but acts a lot like Naga the Serpent.
This thread is in need of gifs.
God, the first episode exceeded my expectations fast. It seems like every adaption of Key VN's get better with each anime
"For a moment, nothing happened. Then, after a second or so, nothing continued to happen."
Some of the girls in the OP won't get much screen time at all, that is of course your assuming to the bunch of girls shown who aren't part of the main six. Kanata and Sasami do get their own arcs in EX, but considering Saya has so far been a no show apart from a split second in the first PV I'm assuming the EX arcs won't be animated. Kanata and Sasami should still play fairly large roles in certain character's arcs though.There were a LOT of girls in the opening that we haven't seen yet so I'm looking forward to them.
Rins my favourite girl, although I love them all.Rin's adorable so far.

(Didn't look at your spoiler)
In that case I'm glad I missed the bigger spoiler then, if it has that much potential to ruin it. That kind of gets me excited to see more though.

I have to say that this is one of the strongest opening episodes I've ever seen for an anime. In around 20 short minutes I grew attached, at least to an extent (more so for Kyousuke*. Because he's amazing) and a good chunk of it was genuinely hilarious. A brilliant start.
*Spellcheck wants to turn Kyousuke into 'Housebroke'. Coincidence?
Those first few minutes set a WAY different tone then what I had imagined. Instead of what I thought would be like Clannad's first minutes on the hill, we got a VERY brief moment with Kyosuke and then WACKY FIGHTING HIJINKS! It's by no means bad, it just sets up an entirely different tone.
(Speaking of Clannad I'm so glad they have Yoshino's voice as Kyosuke. It's a perfect fit)
