interesting concept for kodomo.
bla bla bla
The endless debate between fans and haters. At one point, after spending a lot of time on MAL, you just realize it's totally pointless.

Just wondering why isn't it added to the database? (Also wondering the same for フミコの告白)

Oh, wasn't this one of the concepts off of Genius Party? I just remember the onion head thing.

It usually takes a while for someone to add stuff, especially if it's kind of obscure like this one.

Fumiko no Kokuhaku is not in the DB because it has not been sold commercially, nor has it won an award. See here.

Hmm although SUNRISE and Otomo's cooperation very complicated on Steamboy and he even left the staff of FREEDOM halfway through the project, I'm very surprised he's providing his work for SUNRISE to make a scenario out of it. Well, it should be quite good nonetheless.

In every age, in every place, the deeds of men remain the same.

I really do think I read this manga when I was children.

and I will probably just ignore this anime. I'm sure that it will become something like hello kitty.

Wow, nice cast (Chihiro, Shimada, Ohara, Kobayashi).

Can't say I'm into vamps, but the little guy on the cover looks cute...we'll see what happens.

interesting..
"...our faces marked by toil, by deceptions, by success, by love; our weary eyes looking still, looking always, looking anxiously for something out of life, that while it is expected is already gone – has passed unseen, in a sigh, in a flash – together with the youth, with the strength, with the romance of illusions.” - Joseph Conrad ('Youth')

Judging by the cover, the art isn't really impressive, but it catches my attention, even if I'm no longer a kid (which is a very sad thing) I'm looking forward to watch it ^__^
