Hmm.. not sure how well her elaborate drawing style will translate into animation and the story is only so far along... but I'll still watch it. :)

so from the description:

Sakurai Yuki is a mysterious boy with a mysterious ability. He was mysteriously found
in the mysterious bushes as a mysterious baby and mysteriously adopted by his
current mysterious family. Because of this, Yuki mysteriously strives for mysterious
independence. The last mysterious thing he mysteriously wants is to be a mysterious
burden to anybody. Furthermore, when he mysteriously touches mysterious others,
he can mysteriously feel their mysterious emotions. Unable to mysteriously control his
mysterious ability, he mysteriously often made mysteriously insensitive mysterious
blunders in the mysterious past. With mysterious death threats and his mysterious
abilities mysteriously increasing, what will mysteriously happen when a mysterious
man mysteriously claiming to be his mysterious older brother mysteriously appears?


It mysteriously sounds as mysteriously shitty mysterious yaoi.

Pass on this.

*deletes the memory of ever seeing this thread*

Being honest, the premise doesn't sound all too interesting. I'll give the first episode or so a shot though.

Is it like, 07-Crap lite? Or, since the former was only hinting at shounen ai, is it the other way around?

Oh God, Hotaru Odagiri's work is going to be animated and people still complain. XD

Don't like BL, don't watch it.
I'm very happy and really can't wait to see it.

Heeey, yessss *_*.

Actually, thinking more about it, the style might be really difficult to adequately tranlate to anime form, but I'm really happy anyway^^.

I like how every time we have a thread saying that a random eroge that no one here has played is getting animated no one complains but when a BL manga or something gets it, it's all torches and pitchforks. I'm not saying you have to like it or anything, but at least be fair and someone equal oppertunity.

I am not a big yaoi/shounen-ai fan, but that doesn't mean I really hate it to passion as long as the storyline is good.

This one seems interesting, so I'll take a look at the first episode before I judge it ^^'

Nice! It's not like it was Only the Ring Finger Knows, but UraBoku is a nice manga too :)

Seconded. I've never read the manga, but its art is beautiful and I love BL.

I linked to the page and and saw the pic and went "Ooo, a sword."

Then I scrolled down to the categories and went "Oooh. THAT kind of sword."

Pass.

I just read about this on ANN, and so I looked up the manga. I'm not really sure what to think about it. The summary isn't enough to really capture my interest. It's just that I've read "Only the Ring finger knows" and liked that, so perhaps I'll give the anime a try.

Meanwhile, I was thinking about reading some of the manga now that I've come across it. It's shounen-ai , so I'm just wondering how mature it gets in this series? kissing? making out? or not even that.. just hints? someone want to say something to convince me that I should at least give this manga a try?

;)

Great news, I'm looking forward to it.

Btw...
Some people still amuse me (especially ecchi fanboys and yaoi-antifans in 1) - Uragiri is a light shounen-ai, but still there're posts like "OMG! Yaoi, noooo!". Yup, it'll definitely kill you or you'll have nightmares about huge yaoi coming to your room and saying "wanna join?". You're funny, guys.

That's a bit backwards. Odagiri Hotaru's had that art style since the mid 90's. Although I think Matsuri Hino's style is different, she's still the one that came later.

I'm currently reading the manga and I find it really good. So far, I've liked all of Odagiri Hotaru's works so far. What concerns me is the art style..the art in the manga is great, but I wonder how it'll turn out animated. Anyways, I'm looking forward to it. And to the anti-yaoi/shonen-ai ppl..just don't watch it, as easy as that.

The cast looks great. How many BL roles has Sakurai Takahiro played already? :D:D
The only "obligatory" BL seiyuu that's missing is Ito Kentaro, but he'll be in the new Ai no Kusabi anime. Oh, and Inoue Kazuhiko, but he's already in Maiden Rose.
BL=awesome cast. :D

I think the Vampire Knight comparisons have to do with the lead character kind of looking like Kaname and holding a hot flaming torch for a character named Yuki. The character just happens to be male in this life, lol!

Interesting this mangaka came first. I was thinking they might be the same person but her wrist would probably have broken in two by now.

I have resolved to go post on all the threads for upcoming ecchi about how much I hate ecchi if certain comments continue. Jeeze is every anime coming out lately about bouncing boobs or what?

To those shitty people who are judging this anime/manga ...
PLEASE !!!! READ OR WATCH IT BEFORE SAYING SHITTY THINGS ABOUT IT!!!

BTW... I have read wonderful mangas with crappy summaries but they turned out to be great. Please keep an open mind about various things..

And also this is the first manga of Odagiri-sensei that will be animated because her other mangas are too short that it will not be possible for it to be a one episode anime or OVA. However, she has been in the industry since the 90's.

___________________________________
Truth is Odagiri-sensei categorized this as SHOJO however there are hints of shounen-ai. But there are no kisses, or anything like that. There are only hugs, and something like that..

Hmm, the synopsis didn't make it sound terribly interesting so I was planning to pass on this one (especially since it's only shounen-ai, not because I don't like BL but because I would be irritated by lack of butt-secks, pardon my french), but any anime with this cast of champions is on my list to watch. I mean seriously:

Sakurai Takahiro (mmmmmmmm....)
Miyano Mamoru (this voice alone can get me to watch an anime)
Inoue Marina (Skip Beat! 2 please!!)
Ono Daisuke (Itsuki, you sexy man beast)
Fukuyama Jun (good most of the time, but awesome in Nyan Koi!, desu nee~)

Strong chance of getting animated, very popular graphics that otaku girls likes.
Strong chance of getting a lot of yaoi scenes!!!
With no more than 7 volumes of the manga out this Anime will surely be a 12-13 episodes with on sequel.
