there's a spreading rumor between otakus here in kyoto prefecture, that JC staffs plans to shift 50% of its animators to work on little busters! so joshiraku, and the other anime sakurasou no pet na kanojo (or if there are others yet to be announced) might suffer through animation quality drop.

the fact that it will be directed by ikamusume's man, i expect comedy gold just like the ika musume anime

Well. I'm reading the manga, and it's really funny and amusing. Will watch.

I'm in despair! The studio not being SHAFT has left me in despair!

Sakura Ayane as Buratei Marii
Koiwai Kotori as Haroukitei Kigurumi
Yamamoto Nozomi as Bouhatei Tetora
Nanjou Yoshino as Kuurubiyuutei Gankyou
Gotou Saori as Anrakutei Kukuru

Oooh, Sakura Ayane voiced Merry. Her only major late night TV role really. Two of the others are very new, while Nanjou and Gotou have more under their belts, although none are especially huge names. As much as I love my big time seiyuu, it's also very nice when a fairly green cast gets a chance.

And god those are some strange character names (lol cool beauty). That's Kometa for you though I guess.

Ah, Masayoshi Tanaka...He's here. Good line of staffs, promising!

*and before this I wonder why Tanaka didn't take Little Busters...Sigh

It sounds kinda dull to be honest. Not one of the better manga to be animated.

reaches an unusual or humorous conclusion that's far from the initial discussion topic.
Sounds like every normal conversation ever.

Not much information on MAL about this, but I sense potential.

It doesn't really tell much about what it's like, but I'm somewhat interested... If it's funny, I'm all for it.

Kumeta Kouji? Yes, please, thank you!
