Agreed, she looks like something a nerd would fap to instead of a actual nerd.


That's a bad thing... how?

I have long ago given up on judging an anime according to its concept. We'll see how it turns out...

instead of this kind of anime they should produce anime with some "real-story" ..

anime is a serious matter you know

Indeed.

A mascot for a blog gets an anime? What about this little character I have on my water bottle? Will it get an anime too?

her feets are HUGE also why zippers on her sleeves

so it will be anime about blog - looks solid: other characters would be HTML-kun (yandere), CSS-chan (tsundere) and XML-oniisan
in other words: first ecchi anime about coding the website, dealing with database bugs and slow data transfer all done by our loli characters

I can imagine Nerd-chan's personality would be some kind of a loud all-knowing otaku and speaks very fast xDD

This + loli design, I want to watch it already :D

Akiba and Nerd doesn't match, or do they? (At first I thought "nerd" in another meaning)

I think anime will be just an advertisement of Akiba. OVA I guess?
