A-1 Pictures and Aniplex? An original anime?

So does that mean it's another Anime no Chikara project?

Oh my. Let's hope it will be a lot better than Senkou no Night Raid and Sora no Woto.
Occult Academy started of great, but it ended pretty badly.

Kind of looking forward to this, to be honest.

Let me guess, Aniplex have bought one of the noitaminA slots for their own purposes and will be airing whatever they feel like airing in it. Either that, or they bought a slot immediately after noitaminA hoping to get audiences.

I don't want or need a generic romance anime in my noitaminA slot, but that sounds like what we are going to get, judging by the title.

So potentially, noitaminA is going to have this alongside an anime aimed at pensioners, although I would think they would want a slot between 21:00-23:00 for the latter rather than the 00:45-01:45 of that noitaminA offers.

@Seishi-sama:

Yamamoto Yutaka has his own studio (Ordet) now, remember? If this is a solo A-1 project, he won't be working on it. Fractale is a collaboration between A-1 and Ordet, hence why Yukata is involved with that.

Ordet was already around by the time he was directing Kannagi for A-1. So I don't see why they can't ask him to direct another show for them.

But Yamakan haters. They all just stupid KyoAni hamsters.

Lol, that will never, ever happen. Yamakan said that Fractale will be his last work as an anime director if it fails. Thus, it is impossible for him to direct another.

Couldn't help put LOL at that one XD
Well, I'm in good hopes - the mixture of Toradora! team and NoitaminA timeslot could create a really interesting story. I really doubt this will end up being a generic story, there still has to be some reason to justify the timeslot. And simple characterdesigns or cheesy title do not equal bad anime, so I'm keeping an open mind ^_^

Therefore -> waiters gonna wait.

Could be a cool drama. I hope to see different story's for different couple's. Could be possible...

But something says to me it's about a childhood friend group who is gotten older and talk about their childhood while seeing them change in their puberty or something like that xD.

Well.. it gave me that vibe. Me no speak Japanese so ^^

Wait...what!? Where'd you hear this? Is this true? She does NOT sound like Kugimiya at all.

It was a joke that I made when I noted that all the staff came from Toradora.

I doubt they would put a generic tsundere on the noitaminA time slot, even if I do think they are trying to make it more accessible after the failure of some of the less mainstream stuff that aired on it (especially Saraiya Goyou).

Oh, this looks bad. Except for Mushishi and Shigofumi this guy worked only on some really bad/mediocre series. Now I'm not sure about watching it.
