"Oz Bezarius, heir to one of the duke houses, has just turned fifteen. His life is rich and carefree, darkened only by the constant absence of his father. At his coming-of-age ceremony, however, everything changes. For no reason that he can discern, he's cast into the prison known as the "Abyss", only to be saved by a "chain" known as Alice, the bloodstained black rabbit. Why was he cast into Abyss, how does Alice factor into it all, and what does the organization known as "Pandora" want with him..." -ANN (manga description)

The plot doesn't look too complicated at this point, or at least this first episode didn't give such an impression after reading the description beforehand. Who knows how it might have been otherwise. Nothing of utmost importance yet happened, mainly partial character introductions. Despite Masa's prediction in the Spring 2009 thread, I think this might be worth watching, provided the next episodes will move on to more concrete plot matters (as they should).
Plus since I'm an Ayako Kawasumi fan and honestly Queen's Blade is so pitiful, I'll rather invest my hopes in this one.
