Shino's character design is adorable. Now I want to reread the manga thus far.

How bishounen-reverse-harem-and-or-Shounen-Ai-ish is the source material? Can anyone tell me?

Next to zero. Pretty character designs, including men, but it's pretty art in general. A male side character likes Shino, but he could go either way and has zero chance with Shino. It's mainly a fantasy/mystery/adventure/action story.

I do NOT want to start watching another Hakuouki or 7-Ghost by accident, but if I ignore my prejudices and previous experiences, this really sounds like I would love it (fantasy + shoujo <3). The director has commited Hakuoki, but he also did Terra e so I'll keep my hopes up and my expectations high.

Synopsis and artwork of the manga look good. Will try the anime when it airs.

You people are so ANNOYING.

I love this manga and THIS IS NOT SHOUJO. More - this is SHOUNEN-AI. If you know Miyuki Abe-sensei, youalso know that she's famous with her yayois and shounen-ais (Super Lovers, Komatta Toki ni wa Hoshi ni Kike, Kimi wa Boku wo Suki ni Naru). I've read raws of Hakkenden and i really CAN'T SEE any romance O_O
But I understand that in anime they can do something different from manga, but I hope they won't, 'couse this is too good :D

lol. You say there's no romance but try to say it's shounen ai. It's shoujo, get over it. It's originally from the shoujo magazine, Ichiraci, which has been distancing itself from the BL in its former incarnation for years. A bit slashy, but nothing like her actual BL titles. So unless she's going to go in a completely new direction in the new mag, nope. I've raad the raws too and you're fishing way too hard~
