The anime's production committee lists it as an OVA (Original Video Animation), which declares it won't be broadcast on TV, but rather in theaters.

Hmm, I just do not understand why they not make a TV series or movie. I do not know how in Japan, but Okazu very much praised the original manga.

Judging from its title, the OVA might only cover the manga's first volume, which is not enough material to produce a TV series. However, depending on this anime's reception, it might or might not get more adaptations.

You mean that afterwards they can convert the OVA into a series when they have enough material?

They "can," but it's a matter of "will they." And us fans won't know the answer until confirmed since not all sources with enough material receive multiple medium adaptations.

Well, in any case, it's better than works like Konohana Kitan (imho), so I'd be glad if similar yuri got more attention.

Any quarter-assed yuri series would be able to fix what Citrus has done, haha.

The yuri market is growing. I hope this will get a good enough boost to get a whole 12 episodes to cover a good chunk of the series because it's damn cute.

Honestly super excited for this one. It will be some nice eye bleach for me after trying to make it through Citrus.

Side note, I definitely think that after the OVA is released, that there is strong potential for this story getting a film adaption. I don't think the story line allows room for decent breaks in order to make concise and relevant episode separations. I'm sure it will be at least decently popular enough to get a series, but more likely a movie in my opinion, due to the amount of content and the context of the plot.

Really looking forward to it ^-^
