The story takes place a little in the future. Guided by one particular song, young elementary school student Suzuhara Sorata, from the Heisei Era, is warped through a time skip to an unfamiliar place that looks much like the towns from the Meiji or Taishou period from his textbooks. In this world, he meets three young ladies and nine young men and joins them on a journey aboard the mysterious Norn ship, a giant globe that floats in midair.
I remember seeing the previous related news...that was so long ago that I forgot about the anime adaptation. I almost thought this was going to be canceled. Not really familiar with the game, but I really love the OST. Hopefully the anime will have a good OST too. I also remember seeing people not liking Kaji Yuuki's character.
Finally it's up here! (* '∀'人) I actually expected this would get an entry when a PV was released back then... OTL
Anyway, they completely missed the timing for this... And it still says "in production" at this point... ε-(o´_｀o)ﾊｧ・・・
The art seems kind of CG-ish to me, which has me worried. Hopefully I'm just seeing things.
It's not everyday that i give Otome adaptations a chance, so i'll give it to this one since Sugita's in and plot sounds somehow decent.
Also Yanagi Nagi does the game OPs and EDs which makes me excited cause she might do some music for anime as well.

That seiyuu line up literally made me salivate! I mean Ono Daisuke and freaking Sugita Tomokazu?? These guys are the realest deal to ever deal! I am definitely watching this. Hope the plot will be amazing
