Looking forward to this!

Not the strongest Staff or Cast lineup to be brutally honest but it seems fairly good nevertheless and here's to hoping they'll deliver!

If I read it somewhere right the mc is based on Artemisia Gentileschi. . The series is also written by a female which isn't a surprise given the setting and the treatment towards women in that time period (The Renaissance)

It would be rather odd if it wasn't , would like to see THAT crowd try and complain about this

If she really is, the story may get... uncomfortable... at one point (I haven't read the manga so just talking from her real biography facts).

Hoping this has a focus on the historical drama side of things, which it seems to.

Oh hey! I was just thinking about this manga! I've read very little of it but really like it!
I'm really glad they're making an anime of it. Making that'll make me kick my reading in gear, ha hah!

Enjoy your anime!
