Well, that picture on the website screams BL to me.

..but its a man and a woman. You can even see part of the woman's breast in the picture.


Nothing screams BL like women's breasts.


ROFL.

Josei you say? Probably will give it a whirl ;x.

As a reader of The tale of Genji I am looking forward to this. Also, josei tag.

What am I lookin' at?

I don't even know what I'm lookin' at.

Director of Major? I predict a Solkiskeygasm.

After watching Chihayafuru I became very interested in the 100 poets, so this to me looks like paradise.

The PV looks gorgeous.

Perhaps people confused it with Koi Uta, which is a yaoi by a different mangaka.

I find it ironic that this comes after Chihayafuru o.o Karuta and all o.o

Anyway. Historical + josei = will watch. Although I was extremely disappointed with Genji Monogatari Sennenki... we'll see.

Sugita Kei create Harukanaru Toki no naka de 3, 4 and Sengoku Basara's videos in niconico douga (ニコニコ動画).
"キスをしながら唾を吐け【遙か3】", "25才【遙か3】", "幸せについて八葉が本気出して考えてみた【遙か4】", "【グループ魂】パンチラオブジョイトイ【戦国BASARA】", "【モンゴル800】DON'T WORRY BE HAPPY【戦国BASARA】", "戦国バッテリー【BASARA】"...
I love these works! I never thought Sugita Kei become mangaka. I look forward to this series!

Hmm. Staff seems cool enough.

So excited! I love Josei. And apparently fans of Chihayafuru will like this, or so I've heard.

The illustration looks good, at least.

Hyakunin Isshu

me: CHIHAYAFURU!!! jkjk. There's probably no relation to that series except for the hundred poems. :(

The website picture looks likes two guys, BUT if you watch the PV then you realize one's a girl (I think).

I will watch because I fell in love with the PV music on the first note. XD

I'm glad it isn't BL, looks great! I miss historical japanese anime (no no, sengoku parody stuff doesn't count)!

But I wonder if the art will be the same as the pv 2 :S
