Apparently this is only getting 3 episodes. Oh well.


Its going to fill in the last three weeks left after Black Rock Shooter since it is only 8 episodes. If anyone is wondering why a low episode count for a TV series.



A little correction actually it's the 3 weeks before BRS, the premiere is next week on the 12th


Oh I see well I was half right. xD

meh, is this ecchi?
I wish it was Historie =/

It would be quite a surprise if noitaminA would air an anime that is ecchi. That said, I'm quite sure that this would be about history.

YES !
It's great ^^

The whole flash-animation stuff sure doesn't sound promising after all. But I'll still give it a try.

Actually..sounds interesting.

I think DLE is fitting enough, since all of their shorts seem to be comedy based. I enjoyed Double-J and Hyaoru! Nyaruani, to be honest, even though they were weird, but the comedy definitely doesn't appeal to everyone's tastes.

I think I'm going to like this but I'm afraid of the animation studio DLE.
They only produce anime-shorts and I don't like those shorts to be honest.

Dec 10, 2011 8:40 AM by HuNtErLeOrIo

Wow, never expected them to turn this into an anime.
I love the manga so I'm in.

Dec 10, 2011 8:08 AM by alluvium

Sure I'm in. Don't really know what to expect though.

Dec 10, 2011 7:58 AM by Llama765

sounds funny :)

hopefully they will not focus to more on the ecchi stuff

Don't worry, they'll put just as much focus and effort into ecchi material as you did in being informed about the source material.
