Nakamura Hikaru-sensei writes very wacky stories but in an intelligent, engaging manner. Her mangas are very entertaining to read, can't wait for the movie~

My favorite director of all time finally directs a movie by herself!

My Dream Come True!

I hope this will inspire her to do this more often. :D

I will read the manga (Or start to) for sake of reference when watching this, but for me, she could direct anything and I would watch it.

Fortunately the author of the manga has the sense not to involve the God of the other major world religion; otherwise all hell would break loose.
