This looks like a historical anime, that genre is rather small but I hope this does well.

Kanako Itou! And it's interesting to see the anime industry taking more and more material from outside. The expansion of anime in international audiences, perhaps?

This looks so gay. But, then again all Chinese anime look gay anyways.
