It's just a speculation. They announced last month that there will be an important news in the March issue. They didn't say it's about anime.

I quite like this series; I adore the main character! I mainly started reading it over hearing that a girl like Sadako was ostracized in her class just based on that, that she was like her. Hearing that it was a shoujo sealed the deal! Majorly happy that this is getting animated. :D

Gosh the manga is amazing haha I hope they do the animation similar to Lovely Complex because that made the appeal more fun and lively. Bokura ga Ita's colors for its anime fit well with the story, but I think this one is on the more lively side so yeah I hope they don't use the bright coloring too much.

I'm watching both the anime and drama when it comes out. xP

Why do people complain about VA's when they haven't even read the manga and know what the character is like? Oh wait I mean, you're so cool for hating on Aya Hirano, all the cool kids do it can I have your autograph and be your friend please!!!! I beg you!!!

I tried reading a few chapters with noto mamiko's voice in my head for Sawako.. and considering she only has one voice... I really don't think it's a good fit. Everyone else casted is great fits imo, Noto could be the weaklink and considering she's the main...

Finally, but I hope it doesn't get to ahead of itself and actually pass up the manga.

Now we need more mangas like these to become animated. Yay, can't waiiit!

I agree with a few posts above... ugh, this character would be another Haruhi... -_-

i wonder whats gonna happen because the manga isn't even to a point i think they can make the whole anime series.

***********SPOILER************
***********SPOILER************
***********SPOILER************

cuz in the manga they haven't even gotten to a love relationship yet its all just like innocent looking at each other and embarassing situations. Since it is a romance anime i expect it to have romance and not just the SOL parts its mostly had so far.

***********SPOILER END************
***********SPOILER END************
***********SPOILER END************

so i wonder if the mangaka is going to go really fast in the manga or go ahead of the manga in the anime guessing that its only going to be around 25 episodes like most anime are.
