Rather interested in this, the trailer doesn't really flaunt itself though, does it?

Hopefully there will be more trailers soon.

Frankly, I was expecting that moped to talk, but I guess Hermes doesn't have a sister after all...

Nice fanservice, though. Still not that interested.

This seems extremely boring.. it doesn't help that she starts drinking tea on her bike in the trailer =/

If he can do it with gondolas... I'm pretty sure he can do it with motorcycles.

i don't feel this anime at all so will pass

Eew. She loves her motorcycle? Does that mean she's butch?
I don't find it attractive (my sexist mind does not find it attractive, I should say) when females ride motorcycles.
Still, hopefully it's more entertaining than the Tamayura TV series...

Well, I'm not even sure I'm going to watch this one, so I really don't care.

I'm not sure if you're agreeing or disagreeing with me. But I never said they were the same thing.

Ok, let's put it this way:

Sato Jun'ichi can do moe right.

What is attractive in Aria for me is not moe. Otherwise I would have had the characters as my favourites. It's the "healing" aspect of it. They are two concepts that are not contradictory, but I said one is the selling point for me. Not the other.

Sounds good, some hopefully serious-ish slice-of-life with motorcycles. Definitely gonna check this out.

The two aren't contradictory in any way.

Looking forward to this. Relaxing slice-of-life are a good way to take out the everyday stress from RL activities.

Maybe Sato should try another slice-of-life anime in an outer space, sci-fi setting.

If it would be at least like Tsmayura — I don't mind.

Mar 16, 2012 3:52 AM by Nachtwandler_21

I was like meh, then i saw Sato Junichi and i'm all in now.

Is it just me, or it looks like the character model is actually an overfiltered 3DCG?

Mar 16, 2012 2:01 AM by seishi-sama

so it's seems to be motorization porn like in Ah! My Goddess minus goddess part and with some weird cat (he just need to add one there)

whatever - SoL made by SatoJun = amazing ride
bring it on and take my money :)

It sounds alright except for the dream part.
