Academics sit around sounding cool and talking about how stupid everybody else is.
As an academic myself, I can confirm that this is not a very accurate portrayal… (Somehow Classroom Crisis of all things was much more accurate)
But anyway, great first episode. Maybe a bit over the top with the philosophizing but enjoyable nonetheless. I especially like how for once the characters are actually quite good at reading each other emotionally. Normally anime characters are so obtuse they can’t even notice when somebody is head over heels in love with them…
Also, it has a Lisp program and cellular automata in the ED. That by itself is enough to make it one of the best anime of the season.
