Why should we care if madhouse produces it or not? Its an anime. I honestly don't care who makes it, if I watch it and find it's good, it's good. And so far, it's not half bad.

If it has an Amagami style ending then I'll try and watch this.

Because every season needs at least a handful of generic harem crap.
Well said. I am not a fan of dating sim adaptations. With a couple of exceptions, they never work out too well.

Now this is going to be a hit or miss depending on how they do it..

Sounds like a fanservice anime. I need to see the first two episodes before I make a judgement call!!


It should be about as fanservice oriented as Amagami, given that its an All Ages game from the same developer.

Oh , Harem but no Romance? i think i will Try it Because it's Ecchi (it's Not like I'm Pervert or something like that-Tsundare_Style-) it's just i want to check if the Story is Worth it or not (939)

Harem? Ecchi? You will be in for disappointment (for details read this earlier post in this thread here: http://myanimelist.net/forum/?topicid=523479&show=20#msg18616103 )

At most it is a photo model level of "ecchi", and for "harem" it is more like Amagami than ToLoveRu or Infinite Stratos, namely you are going after 1 girl at a time - how much that counts as harem I'd leave it for now.

And all those professed surprise that Madhouse doing animation for PhotoKano is baffling... Madhouse is just another studio that animates for a range of genres. It just happens to have a couple of arthouse work that seems to have gained quite some fame among anime fans, particularly in the west.

Anyway, fans in Japan wonder more when the vastly more popular LovePlus will ever get animation after PhotoKano...


I know, Love Plus was a good game compared to this and it needs an anime badly preferably with a lead that isn't a wimp or allergic to love someone like Io from Acchi Kocchi.

I really like the manga. Surprised to see an Anime adaptation announced already though and Madhouse is animating it. Very interested to see how things turn out. :D Kanae Itou voicing Nimi?! Heck yeah!

This sounds incredibly stupid, but I'll probably give it a shot because of Madhouse and the quality director.

-_ -_. Manga adaptations of LNs/VNs/games always are just a loose adaptation with lots of fanservice. It never stop to amuse me how people judge of the main thing by manga adaptations despite the fact that they are horrible comparing to it in 90% of cases


you can't blame them though, not a lot of anime fans play VN's, and the manga was the 1st thing they saw (and assumed its the "original")

Read a few of the chapters of "Sweep Snap" and "Your Eyes Only" manga. I found them alright, so I shall watch this too.

I only saw a single page of one of the mangas, where a girl was trying to convince the boy that she was no longer a frail child by asking him to touch her boobs... wasn't interested anymore after that.

LOL
Wasn't interested but will check it out, as a fellow fans of romcom genre :)

This show has a really good cast so I'll check it out.

Urgh, really? Taking photos of girls on dates? Why the hell would this get an anime? Madhouse... what are you doing. You're way better than this.
