Aki Sora, Yosuga no Sora - I have two questions. They seriously want to turn Citrus into an incest-title? And ... Ookami to Koushinryou and Yosuga no Sora were directed by the same person?
Level of my english is still too poor, so ask not particularly angry because of my terrible grammar.

Well, before, I never took this series as incest. But in any case, I hope that they will not turn it into erotic drama like Yosuga.

@Shunaria I also hope not. But I remember how last year, Dagashi Kashi from food porn comedy turned into romance.

I can't wait to watch this, it's yuri portrayed as it should be unlike Netsuzou Trap.

I can see why people aren't fans of the designs, but I personally don't mind that much. Yes the manga is so much more detailed, but I'm just glad that we're getting a Yuri anime that actually looks pretty good.
Help the industry and buy Blu-rays and DVD's.
Noragami is the best anime ever.

Designs look just like they do in the manga, and the animation is fluid enough. I really don't see what there is to complain about.

Decent staff members that could work into the series. I haven't read the manga but considering their last work because somewhat "lewd"... Honesty, I think if it goes that same direction when it comes to that, it actually would work.

Despite me not liking Yosuga no Sora, I say it will probably go well. The thing about that show is that it was awful in most aspects, and I highly doubt it will go the same way.

Nice to see yuri gets some love.

Character designs looks a bit "uninspired" but not that bad. Didn't like the Mei's design at all tho.

VA for Yuzu seems a good choice for me. I think Rokka no Yuusha is good so I dont have a problem with studio.

Hmm, maybe its just I was having higher expectation from this anime when I saw the news(well the trailer reminding me of Netsuzou TRap). Well I won't forget to read the manga before this airs..

Well Studio Passione isn't really that big of a studio honestly, and most of their stuff didn't really went well sales wise.

I am so excited for this anime since Citrus is my favorite manga that I am currently reading at the moment. I'm a bit nervous for the studio since HInako Note wasn't that good. But on the other hand if they just follow the manga and the voice actors does a good job I have a hard time seeing this show fail honestly. But i'm gonna say now if this end up being a 5 or 10 min i'll cry myself to sleep for the next year !!

Sigh sigh.
I read a lot of Citrus and found it got old really fast. So I'm not exactly excited for this, but I'll be checking it out anyway.
I looks fine production-wise so far. I guess people just have high standards. I'd rather have something nicer for a better series anyway.

Whoops, forgot to add my hype to the official news thread... CITRUS YES FINALLY!! <3

I don't know what to say about the art complaints. The PV looks at least as good as Hajimete no Gal this season. I mean... yah, that's all I've got, I don't get the complaints lol, maybe because Citrus is held to a higher standard? I think it looks good! Also this is the first PV, so... close to the finished product, I would think, but grain of salt.

I seriously can't wait for this, I want it now...

Except the fact, that art quality (especially character design) was much better in 2008.

Because of the artwork.

Honestly, the studio isn't really old, and they haven't produced much either so. Not only that, expecting to stay the same artstyle as the manga (keeping more detailed look) will most likely limit everything else in terms of movements, making everything static.

Finally the most important information revealed and a first PV!

Not sure what to think of it, though. I didn't expect Passione. It could go either way, but I'd say it's decent enough. It can't get any worse than Netsuzou TRap's adaptation.

PV looks good in my opinion, but the designs feel a little bit different to me, but I'll probably get used to it in no time.

Really looking forward to it! I'd be lying if I say I'm not hyped or anything. Winter can't come soon enough!

I REALLY liked Rokka no Yuusha, and this is from the same studio... but they have also made a few duds.

I'm gonna roll the dice and say this will be good. I will at least keep an eye on it.
