Charlotte Episode 1 [WORK]
For five seconds, Yu Otosaka can take over another person\u2019s body as his goes limp. Figuring out how to make use of this power isn\u2019t easy, but Yu finds a way to make it interesting. He may not be the most intelligent, but this kid is clever and incredibly cocky, making this first episode all that much more fun to watch.
Charlotte Episode 1
Throughout the episode, Yu puts on an impressive show. This devious kid manages to climb to the top of his class and enter an elite high school by strategically cheating off the smartest kids in his tests. Cheating is bad, but it hardly makes Yu a villain. However, he eventually uses his power in a way that puts others in serious harm so that he can get the attention of the girl he\u2019s after. This moment demonstrated not only Yu\u2019s lengths of his selfishness, but that even though his ability isn\u2019t perfect, it can still be dangerous.
It was good to see that Yu gets his just desserts by the end of the episode. In addition to losing his reputation at school and being forced to transfer, there\u2019s a really great scene where the girl he\u2019s been chasing, Yumi, rejects Yu for unfairly demanding too much from her in a relationship that\u2019s hardly begun. From our brief interactions with her in the episode, Yumi seems to be sweet and caring. These characteristics are often attributed to passive female side characters in anime, so it was refreshing to see her stand up for herself.
One thing I could have lived without was Yu\u2019s little sister, Ayumi. She fills a very typical little sister role \u2014 she\u2019s cute and supportive of her brother \u2014 and was incredibly annoying. Ayumi is a middle school student, so it\u2019s not like she\u2019s that much younger than her brother who just entered high school. Yet, Ayumi speaks as though she\u2019s in kindergarten and refers to herself in third person. I hope in future episodes she\u2019s either toned down or acts a little more her age.
On her way to the Dissection Room, Charlotte can go visit Aiden. He will asks her to try on his White Spotted Jellyfish Dress, and tells her that he will give it to her when it is complete. She also encounters a mysterious box that says "OPEN ME" outside of Aiden's Room, which will result in the Sudden End: Destroyed the World in Less Than a Second. Talking to Huxley in the Dissection Room causes him to ask Charlotte to take care of his nephew, Felix. He notes that Felix has no sense of direction and a bad attitude, and tells Felix to go play with Charlotte so that he can continue his work. Charlotte and Felix can explore various areas of the House with their new task of killing time, and various User Logs give hints to Charlotte's past. Bennett can also be found in the TV Room, emotionally damaged after the latest episode of the drama he was watching. Eventually, Charlotte will go to her bed, resulting in Felix leaving.Upon waking up, Charlotte notices that Felix is gone and decides to look for him. The bottom-left room in the Corridor is now open, and is called the ??? Room. A giant TV is in the center of this room, which Charlotte enters, transporting her into the Bear Channel.In order to continue on, Charlotte must pull the rope in the right room, and outrun the teddy bear to the left room in order to pull the rope there. Being caught by the teddy bear will result in the Bad End: Little Teddy Wants to Play. Successfully completing this task allows Charlotte to go through the small hole in the right room that leads to a kitchen. A Back Door Key allows her to go into an area where Bunny Freya resides.The Bunny Pythia refuses to talk to Charlotte as she does not talk to strangers, and Charlotte finds a Rabbit Toy and gives it to Freya. The Pythia now talks to Charlotte, but is offended when Charlotte comments on the fact that she must be lonely. The door unlocks, and Charlotte can continue onwards.Charlotte encounters an area with four rooms, each one with its own "puzzle". The Cat Room contains two cats who tell Charlotte to drink from the left and right cups of tea, and the bookshelf tells her to go through the right fireplace. If she enters the left fireplace after drinking the cup of tea on the right, she is able to go through unharmed and obtain a Ring. Drinking from the wrong cup of tea or entering the wrong fireplace results in the Bad End: Burned to Death.In the Bear Room, Charlotte finds the 25th Edition of Sci-Fi Almanac and asks Seth to let her take it. Not taking the almanac, but taking the Bronze Key will result in the Bad End: Little Teddy Wants to Play. If Charlotte gets the book, she and Seth will high five in delight and throw the book at the bear when it attacks. Using the Ring allows Charlotte to enter the Goldilocks area, in which three rooms each with three types of porridge, chairs, and beds tempt Charlotte to the play the role of a Goldilocks character who recklessly tries things until what is "just right" is found. The bookshelves contain the story of the Three Bears, and also give a hint that Charlotte should escape through the window. In order to exit this area, Charlotte must find the Silver Key in the Chairs Room and enter all the rooms without using any of the bear's items, and then leave through the window. Using the bear's items will result in the Bad End: You've Been a Bad, Bad Girl.

Charlotte is a 2015 Japanese anime television series produced by P.A. Works and Aniplex and directed by Yoshiyuki Asai. The anime aired 13 episodes in Japan between July 5 and September 27, 2015. An original video animation episode was released in March 2016. Two manga series were serialized in ASCII Media Works' Dengeki G's Comic. The story takes place in an alternate reality where a small percentage of pubescent children manifest superhuman abilities upon reaching puberty. A focus is placed on Yuu Otosaka, a high school boy who awakens the ability to temporarily possess others, which brings him to the attention of Nao Tomori, the student council president of a school founded as a haven for children with such abilities.
When deciding on Charlotte's staff, Toba thought it would be better not to have exactly the same team that produced Angel Beats!. Having already decided to stick with Maeda, Na-Ga and P.A. Works, Toba aimed to bring together a staff that would add a new variety to the creative process, and in doing so would prevent being influenced by the work done on Angel Beats!. With that in mind, Toba wanted a director who had a good understanding of Angel Beats! and who would also be suitable as Charlotte's director, leading him to seek out Yoshiyuki Asai. Toba took into consideration the storyboarding Asai had done for two episodes of Angel Beats!, and he thought that Charlotte would be a good opportunity to have a first-time series director. Asai was also chosen as someone who could handle both comedic and serious moments. When Horikawa first looked at Charlotte's incomplete script, he told Maeda that it did not feel like it had the same kind of zeal that Angel Beats! had. However, once he saw the whole script, his concerns with it were dispelled, much to Maeda's relief.
Kanami Sekiguchi was chosen as the character designer after Horikawa took notice of her work as the animation director of episode nine of Angel Beats!, and Toba was eager to see how she would render Na-Ga's original designs. When it came time to choose an art director, Kazuki Higashiji was chosen for his zeal in the workplace and Horikawa's confidence in his artistic talent; Higashiji had also been the art director for Angel Beats!. Similarly, Satoki Iida was brought back to work on Charlotte again as the sound and music director, and he also helped with the proofreading of the script as he had done for Angel Beats!. Iida was largely chosen for his good communication with Maeda, and so that he could make the best use of his experience working on Angel Beats!. When writing the music for How-Low-Hello, Maeda reused some older songs he had composed as a student in the 1990s that he felt were selective of his best songs from that period. At the time, his concept when composing the songs was "early B'z", but Maeda notes that this is no longer the case with the completed songs.
