Oh! So it was from this where the kawaii girl guitar render came from!

Who could be the seiyuu for her?
Aya-chan? =D

It does have a very KyoAni look, but I think I'm going to guess Brains Base on this. Maybe it's because it looks a little like Kamichu!...

The character design reminds me of KyoAni. The art style resembles Horiguchi Yukiko's.

I may check it out as soon as more info comes in. But for now, I'll be safe and keep it off of my Plan-To-Watch list.

Hmmmmm I like the sound of this title, I'll be on the look out for it!

The overall concept of the anime is pretty good, four high school girls reviving the music club and starting a rock band featuring interesting songs. The sample character design looks okay. I wonder how the cast of seiyuu will be and whether it will actually feature songs rather than episodes of comedy and drama. Currently, I get the impression of it being a crossover between "NANA" and "The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya".

she kind of reminds me of haruhi suzumiya with a guitar or is it just me?
