I watched the RAW and since it doesn't look like anybody's gonna fansub the thing I'll just post what the story is here.

I think I will watch it too. It can turn to be something good or bad we can't know without watching it. so I think it is a good idea to give a try to something diferrent.

Having so much more and same premises-shonen anime what is the problem of this anime existing. If you don't like don't watch but don't say it is not for us.

the problem is, there will be any Fansub subbing this?

Cool, another example of anime that I can bring up if the 'they're all children's cartoons' thing comes up. :p

I probably won't watch, but it's nice to see anime expanding into different demographics.

From the title, I expected something like Only Yesterday, but the trailer makes it look like a soap opera. Very skeptical on this one.

Maybe I will give it a try.

i actually think his could be good ^^

The premise has potential (I laughed at all the idiots saying this was necessarily a "soap opera"... ever read "Madame Bovary", which has the same essential plot?) and I love the realistic animation style in the trailer, but the show's writer is a hack responsible for a lot of pandering crap.

So I'll keep an eye out for it.

Bratty and immature MAL audience couldn't possibly appreciate this deep piece of artwork.

Lol, and just how many MAL users do you think fall into the "middle-aged Japanese woman" demographic?
