Looks can be deceiving when yandere is involved. Expect murder, maiming, obsession, possession, and other sorts of deranged things in a cute shell.

Considering the art and its info on MangaUpdates, it'll most likely be shoujo-ai with overtones rather than full-on yuri.

Anyone else noticed that Kusakawa had been directing some titles as of recent? He worked on Fuuka, Cheer Fruits and soon to come Ahiru no Sora. The studio in charge is founded by some staff members from Diomedea too.

Only I noticed that seyu of Shio and Momo are the younger sister and older sister in the March Lion? It's a little funny.

Well, although it looks like a lesbian pedo-bait, I'm glad that the proposed shoujo ai is becoming diverse, not an endless fanservice like recently.
Level of my english is still too poor, so ask not particularly angry because of my terrible grammar.

Diomedea isn't even one of the worst anime studios around. In my opinion a lot of "bad" series are merely mediocre at best.

Well, after reading about this manga on TV Tropes, I even began to doubt that this is shoujo ai in general. Rather, a somewhat surreal thriller about mentally unstable characters. But, it only further awakened my interest in adaptation.

Been reading this series.

I'm surprised it got an anime tbh but hoping for the best. They really need to capture the mood of the manga.

Is this really psychotic romance? Half of the resources write that this is shoujo ai, and the other simply describes this manga as a horror or thriller.

I just PTR'd it today. What a coincidence.

Anyways, I need my fill for Yandere babes; a pedo-lesbo combo is just an icing.

Trashy yandere stuff? Sure, why not. Like many already said, we've been lacking yandere in anime lately.

I'm big into yuri so I already went full at it when I heard about this. But the thing that really gets my attention is HanaKana voicing a yandere lesbian. Who could say no to that?

Probably. Because the two are pretty much from Diomedea along with few members taking place.

Didn't expect an anime too, is a very odd and original manga and i like the obsession love of the MC, also i like age gap stories and full yandere characters. Hopefully they do a good and faithful adaption.

Okay that's more believable. Would have been hillarious if she was four.

This is more or less because despite reading the source material the teenager doesn't actually do any harm to the actual child. She does go over-protective about her tho but it doesn't go to anything lewd extenses to where it can be irked off.
