It's Makoto Furukawa, not Shin Furukawa.
Typo as well, it should be Kazehaya.

So I checked who the director, Tetsuya Yanagihara, is and I think it's the wrong person. He hasn't done any directing at all.
I believe the director is this guy, Tetsuya Yanagisawa. Which would make more sense since it's TNK.
And lo, it's the director of DxD and the upcoming Kenzen Robo Daimidaler. This adaptation should be even more fun.

The character designs are...eh. Their faces all look the same to me lol. Except for their hair and eye color. Need a bit more info before I decide if I will try it out or not.

I've been waiting for this. I'm one volume behind in the Light Novels since I haven't read Volume 12 yet. The novels are pretty good though in my opinion, definitely worth the read, and Baka-Tsuki is caught up in translating all the volumes so far (for anyone who may want to read them).

Can't wait to watch this. Its from the same studio who did Highschool DxD (and School Days) huh? So they might change some small things for the adaptation, but if its as enjoyable as Highschool DxD I won't be disappointed.

2014 is getting better and better for me :)

Ohh god, Kamito is gonna be voiced by Makoto :(
Claire is gonna be voiced by Ibuki. Not familiar with her voice so I won't say anything just yet. Although, I believe it would've be better if Claire was voiced by Ayana Taketatsu who did Kotori from Date a Live.

I really hope they don't make Kamito's voice sound like Banri from Golden Time. His voice just irritates me and personally, I don't think it suits Kamito's personality at all.

Exactly what I was thinking. I don't know anything about the story so i can't say if it is something I would enjoy. But just from the PV and the character designs they just look generic and unexciting.

Although I did find the music to be fun. So maybe that will be a saving point for this?

Based on your list I'm sure you will like this.

The PV didn't really seem to tell me much, though maybe that's because I have a poor understanding of Japanese. I'll probably check this out. I'm not expecting an elaborate plot, but I hope the characters are at least interesting.

There isn't really anything to gather from the PV, except it's a Harem I guess? And the cast of course.

Was reading the Manga, guess I'll stop for now and wait for the animation this summer. Kinda looking forward to this, I enjoyed the manga.

The song in the PV reminded me of the ED of Machine-Doll (MAWARE!SETSUGEKKA), especially at the beginning.

Since the VA cast is relatively new I'm quite worry on how it will turn out. What I don't quite like from the cast is Kamito VA. I think everyone else is perfect especialy Rinslet and Est.

Well I'm still on the ropes about Claire's VA. She sounds too childish. It doesn't fit at all. As for Kamito, id much rather prefer if he was voiced by someone like Nakamura Yuuichi. Other than that, everyone else is perfect.

After watching the PV a few times I guess Kamito's VA is okay. The VA doesn't sound as irritating as he does when voicing Tada Banri. Maybe it will just take some time to get used to.

YES SUMMER. A lot of VA that aren't very known but excited to see Ellis, Claire. And god damn VA that did Tada Banri is gonna be Kamito's VA, jesus. CD is fairly similar I'm very happy. Was hoping that MadHouse or TNK since TNK showed a phenomenal job on Highschool DxD, glad it's one of them. Hope it's a two cour show since it's summer with proper ending. Est and Rinslet's voice is very good. Glad to see this news but somewhat disappointed.

EDIT: Actually doesn't sound so bad for most of them but after watching over n over again, Claire sounds a bit off, really wished Kugimiya Rie did her instead, still irritating to hear Kamito's voice, Hikasa Yoko would have been pretty good for Ellis as well in my opinion.

Yeah the problem here is only Kamito VA. And about KuguRie voicing Claire not that I don't like the idea of her doing it but I'm worried about the backlash. Still if this is JC 99% I'm sure that Claire will be voiced by KuguRie.

I agree, Claire's voice sounded really off to me as well. No fault of the actress of course, just that most of the tsunderes out there are essentially expected to be voiced by actresses who are experienced in those roles.

Was originally expecting Kugimiya Rie or as Ophis said, Ayana Taketatsu to voice her. Though I always welcome the opportunity to see the new folks in the industry. I was expecting Marina Inoue(Tohka(DAL), Yozora(Haganai)) to voice Ellis and Itou Shizuka for Fianna.

On another note, anyone knows anything about the actress who does Rinslet? She goes by the name of Yuuki Kana. Didn't find anything on her on MAL so looked her up on JP wiki and saw that she had a few minor roles in Karneval, Arpeggio and Genshiken but voiced some main characters for games.

I think that Rinslet VA will get more role as ojou from now on.

OMG I KNOW RIGHT AKENOS VOICE WOULD BE GOOD FOR FIANNA AS WELL. I did think about how Inoue would do right from the get go. Although I don't think it would be that good actually, Tohka's voice would be a bit childish with Ellis' appearance, Tsukiumi is too tsundere, Yozora ehhh noh.. I really think Hikasa would have been very good for her, look at Houki from IS Stratos. I also looked a bit about which male Seiiyu would've been okay for Kamito despite not being too known, I think Kimura Ryouhei (Kodaka from Haganai, Kise from KNB) would be fine.

Looking forward to this.

The LN was a fun read but I still need to catch up on the last two volumes. Haven't read it for a year now.

@R4vel: Oh yeah, Houki, forgot about her. Could not picture Youko's voice as anything else other than Rias. For Fianna, her VA did a good job with La Folia despite the few lines she had and Fianna is very similar to La Folia as a character so if she can maintain what she did with La Folia, then it should be pretty good.

Personally, I'm looking forward to Yuuki Kana's performance as a VA from here on cause her ojou voice is really, really well done. I can even go so far to say that I was quite mindblown.
