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.

FREAKING FINALLY. Took you long enough, Otomate. Now, because you took this long, you better not butcher this one and make it just 12 episodes. This anime needs 24 episodes for the whole story.

Now much longer for the PV or even a key visual? I know they were shown in Otomate Party. Come on!

P.S Still waiting for more info on the Tsukiuta anime...

Ayahi is finally in something potentially not shitty, praise all the lords.

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.
