There are NINE volumes for the BD/DVD. It seems that the series is a 2-cour series.

I sincerely hope it's not going to be another cheesy, over the top melodrama like the ones in AnoHana.
Many people seem to love the over the top melodrama in AnoHana though. Anyway, even other works from PA Works like Iroha and Tari Tari have some melodrama - I just think it goes with their original works...

Buriki is not really the person who handles the character design position. Character design is by Ishii Yurko. Buriko is credited with Original Character Concept, which is more like he made a number of basic sketches and then some other people develop on it so the end results could vary from the original design, particularly since it is an original work, unlike Haganai where Buriki's illustrations form a clear reference and viewers can compare and see the difference.

PA works is delivering nice scenery and visuals which is quite common for them. I'm liking the flying fish thing they got going on.

Another PV:


Wow, I hope this is as good as Tari Tari or HanaIro. The "image" song by Ray is so good though here. HanaKana being one of the main seiyuu also helps, lol.

A lot of people already commented about the staffs, I do agree with most. I look forward to this series. Though, if I'm bothered with something it'll have to be the "characters".

Besides the 2 main: Mukaido Manaka and Sakishima Hikari

The other six listed are characters from the light novel "Mahouka Koukou no Rettousei" and those VAs are the ones who voiced them on the LN's drama CD. I'm confused... @.@

Buriki - Fuck yeah!

PA Works - Fuck yeah!

Buriki + PA works = fuck no!

Burikis character designs don't belong to PA works... they give everything is weird gradient.

Best looking Buriki is still denpa onna and that was made by shaft (akiyuki shinbo). I doubt PA does a good job here with these character designs.
Their backgrounds always look amazing but character designs are kinda too slick and glossy

Hey people, if you like this chara-designer, just check the manga Tokage No Ou, it's fricking amazing ;D

Buriki = Awesome char designs
P.A. Works = Awesome visuals

Those reasons are enough for watching this. Thou sometimes P.A. Works' plot isn't that special, but their visual never fails to make me eyegasm, so why not watch this? :D
