:/

Hopefully it's gonna be good slice-of-slice free of moe.

Since the director is known for Aria, I have my hopes up :P

And so the girl with a strange love for her motorcycle dreams of living in the city, and a lot of people who live at Haruno's parents' pension are really bored and encourage her dream.

Hopefully this is a 3-5 minute anime short done right. Collaboration with Honda makes me worried, but if they leave Sato Junichi to his own devices, this can be great even as a normal length anime.

Won't get my hopes up, though.

Sounds more like a commercial than an actual anime. But the fact that Sato Junichi is directing excites me nonetheless.

What, and you don't think Aria is a very moe-inducing show for many people? It sure is for me (in the real meaning of the word). SatoJun is a master of this stuff. But I'm not expecting too much from this. It's hard for me to get excited about short OVAs like this, even from a great director like SatoJun.


What I like in Aria is not moe, it's the peacefulness.

She reminds me of Alpha, actually a lot of Alpha mixed with the good traits of Fu with the look of a middle school aged loli.

This is moe but those expecting fanservice should look elsewhere, this is Tamayura with scooters.

Aria is moe without trying, or rather without the focus being on the moe. It's a nice pleasing side dish of moe which is nice to me.

Hopefully this OVA is something similar (though it obviously will be no Aria... not it's fault though, nothing will be quite like Aria).

OVAs have the potential to be impactful and pleasing. Here's hoping.


If this turns into anything like that Goddamned Suburu the Animu though....

>people complaining about moe in a SatoJun SoL show
No, people really couldnt be this stupid right?

Anyways outside of the whole HONDA blatant advertizing, I have yet to be disappointed by any SoL where SatoJun is involved. I will definitely be watching this.

She can even get a spot on TLC. There was a guy on there who has sexual relations with his car.

Ok™

Is it just me, or it looks like the character model is actually an overfiltered 3DCG?

Looking forward to this. Relaxing slice-of-life are a good way to take out the everyday stress from RL activities.

Maybe Sato should try another slice-of-life anime in an outer space, sci-fi setting.

The two aren't contradictory in any way.
How can one group 2 different things together and call it the same?

Sounds good, some hopefully serious-ish slice-of-life with motorcycles. Definitely gonna check this out.

I'm not sure if you're agreeing or disagreeing with me. But I never said they were the same thing.


Ok, let's put it this way:

Sato Jun'ichi can do moe right.

What is attractive in Aria for me is not moe. Otherwise I would have had the characters as my favourites. It's the "healing" aspect of it. They are two concepts that are not contradictory, but I said one is the selling point for me. Not the other.

Eew. She loves her motorcycle? Does that mean she's butch?
I don't find it attractive (my sexist mind does not find it attractive, I should say) when females ride motorcycles.
Still, hopefully it's more entertaining than the Tamayura TV series...

Well, I'm not even sure I'm going to watch this one, so I really don't care.

If he can do it with gondolas... I'm pretty sure he can do it with motorcycles.

Frankly, I was expecting that moped to talk, but I guess Hermes doesn't have a sister after all...

Nice fanservice, though. Still not that interested.

Rather interested in this, the trailer doesn't really flaunt itself though, does it?

Hopefully there will be more trailers soon.
