The special webpage for light novel Shichisei no Subaru (Seven Senses of the Re'Union) revealed that the series will be receiving a TV anime adaptation.

Synopsis
In the popular MMORPG world 'Union' there existed a legendary party named Subaru. This party, made up of a group of childhood friends and elementary schoolers, exceeded the limits of the game with their various senses. However, due to an incident which resulted in a death, 'Union' ended its service and the group of childhood friends went separate ways. Six years later, highschooler Haruto logged into the new 'Reunion' and reunited with a single girl. Asahi—one of old 'Subaru' party members, and his childhood friend who should have died six years ago. Is she a digital ghost, or...?

The series is written by Noritake Tao with illustrations by booota, and has been published since August 2015. The series currently has five volumes in print, with its sixth volume scheduled for release on September 20.

This other Anohana clone (https://myanimelist.net/manga/92094/Nagareboshi_ni_Negau_hodo_Bokura_wa_Sunao_ja_Nai) also has a similar premise and the ghost is actually Subaru, pretty funny.

At first glance, that outfit in the picture looked almost like the Kancolle outfits. Also the premise doesn't really intrigue me but I might give it a watch.

Sounds rather like AnoHana in a way but, this could be promising enough... however the girl got into the game after said incident or? Dunno, but it is interesting enough to where I wanna see how this goes.

Will look into this for more information when the staff and such are announced.

Haven't read the novels before but the main girl's character design reminds me of SAO's Asuna...

Hmm can't blame you on that.

Btw, the artwork seems totally familiar to me... But I think I might pin point it wrong, but didn't the illustrator did the artwork for this?

Okay Nevermind, he did. :T and did some artworks that I do legit like.

Apparently it's pretty much anohana 's story in SAO world (including the not well build/not believable mmorpg aspect unfortunately), with plenty of chuuni moments.

Didn't seem really appealing to me tbh, but I guess some peoples will like that.

He's chuuko demo koi ga shitai!'s author and boku to kanojo to kanojo to kanojo's author too?
Saw those before, and avoided them, sooo...

Hmm can I ask if you're aware how many volumes total this series has at the moment? Just wondering here. Though I dunno if there's any translations available or something so I'm just wondering here if I can go and take a peak somewhere or not.

6th volume is getting out in a few days, so 5 right now, but 6 in like 5 days.
I don't think there's any translation available, although I don't especially follow translations.

Oh I see then, and dang. That's unfortunate because well if there were some available I could be able to read it sometime, Oh well might just see how this anime turns out blinded I suppose xP

But thanks.

So... it's Anohana combined with Sword Art Online, essentially? See, I like both of those series, but I don't really think mixing the two together will work on any level for some reason. Of course, I'll be happy to be proved wrong, but I don't think I'll be watching this unless I am proven wrong and it turns out to actually be good.

Mainly AnoHana's problem was just the overall drama around it... it does become rather annoying for some people (even though I still liked AnoHana but I do admit the way that was done was... Eh?) In here it seems not like that though. At least even the Illustrations that are out there from what I'm seeing on google. :T

Sounds like updated version of .hack, so like shitty .hack. What a long way has anime come to make you cringe just by seeing the mix of words "MMORPG", "Subaru", "elementary/highschoolers" and "incident". Come on, tell me it's going to be made by A1 or P.A....

Okay, the synopsis is kinda fucking me up. Someone please clarify it to me, is the death of someone caused the game to be out of service or those two events are unrelated at each other?

As far as it says in the Synopsis, it's probably an death caused the game to be out of service, so it has to be an drastic event where the game would be cancelled out or something like that.

Uhh okay so some sort of MMO/tragedy hybrid? That's a bit weird

I guess Grimgar scratched the surface of that but didn't do a very good job at it. Might have potential though, but it might also be a trainwreck

SAO + AnoHana - okay. I like it when the Japanese combine the incompatible.
Level of my english is still too poor, so ask not particularly angry because of my terrible grammar.

I do not quite understand what you're arguing about, but to drop anime (which you are not even going to watch) after reading the synopsis is fun.

One question:

How can you consider something a dropped when you haven't even seen it yet? I just don't get it. :T

Everytime I see a female character wearing those exact things in their hair I hate them. It looks like a freaking napkin.
Are they saving them to wipe their ass later?

The same way when you look at a picture or read a synopsis and think

The same applies both ways. What's there not to get?

I dunno for me a drop is something that is already seen or you have seen at least a bit of the series. But that's how I see it.

6 years later, highschooler Haruto logged into the new 'Reunion' and reunited with a single girl. Asahi—one of old 'Subaru' party members, and his childhood friend who should have died 6 years ago. Is she a digital ghost, or...?


Yes, YES! and YESSSS!!!!! I am definitely watching this. This shit sounds interesting and the one I quoted sounds like it's going to be a good romance and drama for me >_<

I also would like to ask about this :). I am a living person and I also have a list of hated titles, but I think it's stupid to drop something just to "everyone saw that you dropped it."
