Bakuman, Honey and clover, Nodame Cantabile... and others that I haven't watched.

Can't wait to see if it's worth following after the first few episodes :D

Is it? With how feminine guys typically look in this BL stuff I couldn't tell. It looks like typical BL art so thats why I figured it was a guy.

I'm already in love with the PV. But what is this about? Neither the anime or the manga are registered on MAL database, what the heck.

Why is neither the manga nor the anime in the DB? The staff looks awesome, but I kinda want to know a bit more about the plot and setting.

Kanade from Chihayafuru would probably love it though *gg*.
Having high hopes myself with that staff and a theme that has potential.

Could be nice, though the words "unique interpretation" worry me. And I don't even know the source material.

if the beautiful art on the preview is any indication, i'll be checking this out - truly stunning colors/line-work...not sure where the whole BL thing is coming from in the above comments - looked like a man and woman in the pv on youtube, and even if that's the slant, so what?

I'm glad it isn't BL, looks great! I miss historical japanese anime (no no, sengoku parody stuff doesn't count)!

But I wonder if the art will be the same as the pv 2 :S

Hyakunin Isshu

me: CHIHAYAFURU!!! jkjk. There's probably no relation to that series except for the hundred poems. :(

The website picture looks likes two guys, BUT if you watch the PV then you realize one's a girl (I think).

I will watch because I fell in love with the PV music on the first note. XD

I find it ironic that this comes after Chihayafuru o.o Karuta and all o.o

Anyway. Historical + josei = will watch. Although I was extremely disappointed with Genji Monogatari Sennenki... we'll see.

Perhaps people confused it with Koi Uta, which is a yaoi by a different mangaka.
