GAINAX and Mizushima produce a kindergarten anime... sounds like using a sledgehammer to crack a nut.

Designs remind me Potemayo.

But its a bit strange Gainax are doing this, maybe they want something simple to do after all the hard work they've been doing lately?

Unless some of those kids turn into mecha, there's no point in watching it.

Mizushima Seiji is a horrible director especially after what he did with Gundam 00. maybe this show is something of his caliber considering he can't make a coherent plot.

I'm hoping that it's animated FLCL style.

While I thought that Mizushima did good on Slayers Next, his last two major directorial works (FMA and Gundam 00) suffered horrible second halves. even if this will be by GAINAX, with Mizushima on the helm, not sure if I WANT.........

Just a matter of time... just a matter of time.

Did anyone doubt that creature will appear?

Read 3 chapters of the manga, reminds me a lot of Kodomo no Jikan except without ecchi. I think this'll be a good timewaster.

Wow. If this has no ecchi and no usual Gainax stuff that i dislike so much, then i think i will end up loving it.

Let's be honest GundamUC... you're absolutely right, Mizushima is not a good director (even if I find the first season of Gundam 00 to be far worse than the second).

In every age, in every place, the deeds of men remain the same.

Why is everybody so surprised about this? GAINAX does do things other than mecha :D

Personally, I was reminded of the recent Petite Eva series and GAINAX's new policy of doing "generic money makers" in between their "actual" works. Think "He Is My Master" or "Maharomatic". Not that there's anything wrong with that, but the team of mostly non-GAINAX employees seem to solidly place this in the former category.

All that said, I'm still going to watch it, because I am a fan-girl and I watch anything GAINAX touches.
