If you've watched Hi Score Girl, the CGI is the same style.

the only reason i made an account on this godforbidden site was because i heard this was getting an anime . i was sad enough that they were using cg for such a simple series , but that pv is not convincing i have to say . the models atleast look like the manga , but the way they move is just jarring . like the fuck was that at 00:41 ?

atleast the sound part is good . it looks like caph's seiyuu is a new one . her voice fits perfectly for caph from the part we heard , hopefully she can pull of the stupid side of caph as well.

well there goes my hope of someone seriealizing this in english . i was hoping that the anime might get popular enough that some company might pick it up , but JC using cg has already averted away enough viewers.

The OP and ED sound very good. The CGI looks well done, and honestly I think it fits the style of this anime. Can't wait for it to air

I still can't figure out why a young VA with such an impressive cast of extremely hyped characters still appears more often in an additional cast. Rie Takahashi has far fewer awards and hype in the VA scene, but she has already voiced a whole bunch of main characters on a variety of shows.

It says it will air on July 4, but on the anime site, it says that it will air on July 3. Which one is true?
