I will try and set my expectations low though I do hope this turns out to be a success so we can see more CLAMP adaptations.
Signature.

The art is different from the original, much softer and smaller, but it's quite pretty.

Why does this manga need a female protagonist if it's yaoi? Some kind of original game with self-insert? Also, Nana Mizuki is participating in the gay title again, but this time male and not female. Is that how the wedding and pregnansy affected her, lol?

Seishirou's voice feels off. And I really don't like Subaru's voice at all. I like his voice actor, but not for this role!

When a manga is adapted into an anime, I know the art will change, and I accept that. But, if the mangaka has some unique qualities in their art, you should try to copy them, I think, because they are what makes the art feel special. However, this PV makes it look like they completely removed all of the pretty effects, and replaced them with CGI.

I am worried about this anime. I hope this somehow ends up being good.

How come it looks so good and so bad at the same time?

i'm disappointed with the voice cast. umehara might actually pull this off, but i totally can't stand both aoi shouta and mizuki nana. will still watch it since i have such a massive soft spot for clamp.

I haven't read the manga, but I know that the girl is the twin sister of one of the other characters.

She's the sister of one of the gay MCs.

Yaoi can go hand-to-hand with brocon-siscon, in a weird polyamorous triangle to pander to moar fetishes. Is CLAMP, after all.

I did some research and it turned out that she is also bisexual. Oh, CLAMP is really CLAMP, lol.
