I'm surprised. I liked The Music of Marie but I don't think I'll watch this.

first aku no hana and then this - great to see some more edgy manga being made into anime, as there seems to be a real lack of risk taking in the industry these days..........we need more good horror anime in general - bravo!

Uhm..

I saw Yaoi, then this;
"Litchi Hikari Club is filled with BL romance, guro, rape, and murder."


Not for me.

I really can't see how they'll adapt it without censoring too much. The yaoi scene can be easily left out, the gore on the other hand...

I could watch another horror series, but yaoi? Too bad, I'll pass on this one.

By the name, I almost thought it was another magical girl anime.

After seeing the genre, I have to think again.

The manga managed to make me feel uncomfortable and gross me out, which is an impressive accomplishment. I have high expectations. Hopefully it doesn't end up censored like hell.

One is enough of a turn-off for me. Especially the whole rape deal, too.

Haha, this will either be the best thing ever or the biggest insult to the manga. I don't see much middle ground. It matters on what manages to not get cut or censored into shadowy oblivion.

Doesn't sound too appealing to me, and it can easily end up being nothing more than yaoi bait. However, I may try it anyway, if I'm in the mood, but my expectations will be as low as possible.

This. One of Litchi's charms is how flamboyantly over the top it is, especially with how it handles the guro and some of the death scenes (hello, toilet!). I can't really see anything being cut out without it having an effect on something else.

Well judging from the by the synopsis and the comments above this is a gore, horror, manga with a mix of BL.

I find all those genres enjoyable, but when it comes to stories about horror, gore, psychological, etc usually it's already full or jam packed of stoyline that adding more will probably just make the manga/anime full of events squeezed together into one. To put it shortly it'll likely give a rushed feeling. Especially genres like yaoi in my opinion, since it can be one of those main or really deep genres.

Well when it comes down to me watching/reading this will depend on the first trailer or episode really. Sorry but I'm too lazy at the moment to read the first volume or chapters.

These.

On a side note, people judging it already: the yaoi is an important plot point, but completely ungraphic. As opposed to the extremely graphic rest of it. So don't be so close-minded if you like the sound of the rest of it OTL

And for the yaoi fangirls: Please don't call it a BL show OTL;;;;; It's not a BL show. It's a horror manga with some yaoi elements from certain characters. There's a huge difference. ^^;; BL's a distinct genre containing dramatic fluffiness, generally speaking, aimed at pleasing mostly-girls. This is incredibly not-fluffiness, aimed at pleasing... er, who knows? XD

(I'd like to add that while I'm probably hanging round the fringes of the category of 'yaoi fangirl', I don't actually like most yaoi. Since a large proportion of it is pretty terrible ^^;;)

LHC's very interesting either way, so I hope people will either try it, or, if they don't want to for whatever reason, just quietly not try it. :3

tl;dr idealism on the internet lolwut

I'm guess that this thing may have that same thing as "Another," but since Yaoi is a deal-breaker for me, it is gonna be a big "NO" for me.

Yaoi is not my cup of tea so I think I'll pass. No I definitely will pass on it.

I guess I may as well throw my opinion in this thread since I am one of the few who have actually read the manga.

When I saw this announced, I was shocked, this is the last thing I expected to get an anime, maybe an OVA but this could actually be a TV series.

Like other members have said, this will be hard to adapt, I am expecting a lot of censorship around the beginning at least. I will at least check this out, the only studio I could see doing this is Deen but we will soon find out.

So yeah - Neo-Nazism, horror, Yaoi, gore. If you don't like any of these, Staaaaaaay away from this.

The manga is really messed up though....

However, I consider it satire in the way they portrayed everything. It's very comical.
bla bla bla
The endless debate between fans and haters. At one point, after spending a lot of time on MAL, you just realize it's totally pointless.

Being gay, I'm disappointed to say most BL titles tend to be the same awful crap over and over again. I can only hope this will turn out nicely with the horror genre thrown in. Or is this more horror with BL thrown in? o.o

Correct. This was published in a mature, adult magazine (Manga Erotics F) and not a BL magazine. So it's more like it happens to contain some homosexual relationships which are mostly drowned out by the glorious blood and guts flying everywhere.

I guess reading reviews on the play would give an idea how this could be adapted to TV-okay levels, but that's a lot of effort..

I'm betting most likely they'll leave the "yaoi" out which honestly doesn't have too much to do with the manga and is very brief anyway. It was just a way to show one of the boy's obsession with the other.
Its really good and creepy and I'm excited!
