An official website has opened and announced that the manga adaptation of Kyokou Suiri (In/Spectre) novel will get TV anime. The staff members were also revealed.

Synopsis
At the young age of 11, Kotoko Iwanaga was abducted by youkai for two weeks and asked to become their "God of Wisdom," a mediator between the spirit and human worlds, to which the girl quickly agreed but at the cost of her right eye and left leg. Now, six years later, whenever youkai wish for their problems to be solved, they make their way to Kotoko for consultation.

Meanwhile, Kurou Sakuragawa, a 22-year-old university student, has just broken up with his girlfriend after he fled alone when the two encountered a kappa. Seeing this as her chance to become closer with him, Kotoko immediately makes her move, hoping to get married to Kurou one day. However, she quickly realizes there is something more to Kurou. With this knowledge, she asks for his help in solving the various issues presented by the supernatural, all the while wishing her newfound partner will eventually reciprocate her feelings.

Modern Brains Base? Rest in pieces. The director is awful as well. A shame, since this manga is fun.

It's been awhile since I've read the manga but glad to see it get an anime adaptation. Hope Brain's Base can deliver. (I was expecting initially expecting Bones to be the studio)

Not into the genre all that much however I'll give it a watch. This looks like one of those that builds up the characters' relationship while having the main focus progress.

Where is the love triangle even implied here? I mean love triangles aren't even that bad, and it doesn't even look like it is based on the description.

It's just the main character breaking up with his original girlfriend and then encountering someone else... which in turn they will develop into a different relationship.

Romance between an 11yo god girl and a 22yo student. Not my taste.

There's not really a love triangle afaik. Or at least it's not shoujo esc love triangle status
'On-Hold' is another way for a completionist to say 'Dropped'

Now I look so dumb and I'm not even drunk or tired, I'll give this a shot, if the trailer is good, future PTW.

There is no love triangle in the story at present where it takes place. Kotoko is already 17. However,

Mirai Nikki is TRASH
Angel Beats is horrible.
Charlotte is a dumpster fire.
Shinsekai Yori has no characters.
Oreimo's S2 specials don't actually exist.
