Ah, I remember a hint dropping a few months ago about this. (not the actual series but just that Kunihiko Ikuhara was working on something)

Should be very interesting to see how this will turn out.

New Ikuhara originals are always welcomed, looking forward to it even though Yuri Kuma was disappointing in the end.
Stone Ocean adaption when?

Oh boy. I was wondering when Ikuhara was going to work on his next project. I can't exactly say I'm excited for this considering how Yurikuma turned out but I'll watch it anyway.

Hmm pretty interested in what Ikuhara has to bring this time around. Granted Yuri Kuma was his weakest work from what I've seen from him (which isn't too much), but it was still good on its own right due to the message getting acrossed rather well.

Trailer is very SHAFTy but that's pretty much it. Neither studio nor director make want to check it out in the slightest. Penguindrum is still rotting on my PTW and I know that Utena is supposed to be a thing but I would rather try to bite my balls off than watch another shoujo. Especially ai. Moving on.

needs more PV but looks interesting since the story concept is like technology like the internet makes people more connected than ever before but they still feel alone because our biology did not evolve yet to get rid of physical contact requirement of communicating

Another anime conundrum from Ikuhara to bust my skull over.

But I still want to see this for the awesome visuals and music and voice acting.

The idea behind this is nice, I'm just worried that the final production is going to end up regurgitating the AI idea while trying to cover it up with a semi-interesting plot and story line. It's Ikuhara, so I'm obviously excited, but originality for new shows has been few and far between lately.

The trailer is vague, but I most definitely have high hopes and expectations :)

@Shadow-Chan I heard Suwabe-san, too, but wasn't sure (not officially announced yet, so I cannot officially put it on the news post).

Stole the words of my mouth.

Lesbobear was a cringefest.

Eh, Lesbobear was pretty interesting and novel though. I'd rather see stuff in that kind of vein than rehashing Gay Anime Penguindrum or Gay Anime Utena. Why rehash two masterpieces when you can explore an interesting direction?

If spinoff is BL I wonder if original is the same. Please be BL.

Reminder, lesbobear manga plot barely had any to do with the anime plot...maybe that will be the case?

Doesn't change the fact it was a GL manga nonetheless.

Ikuhara did some BL in Utena, with the black rose arc, or all the fan-service of the third arc.
So even if we're more used to some GL content, this anime being BL would not be surprising.

BTW, Utena's manga, even if there is common elements, is also quite different from the series. I haven't read the Mawaru spin-off, but I'm under the impression that each time the manga and the anime are made to be different, yet sharing a common ground. The thematic doesn't change, but the actual story and/or its evolution is different.
