Yeah, hopefully it's all a silly joke to get yurifags mad. I've done some research about TBS as well and I read somewhere that they aired To love ru, which I assume it's just mindless fanservice.

She sounds nothing like the usual tsundeRies (well, she isn't tsundere after all). Koto is the best Rie, closely followed by Alan Naismith.

Well, that I can agree with you. Koto is good, Chika was also bearable.

I saw 18th first and got scared it might be just 10 episodes or something. Thankfully first day is 9th so it will be standard 12. Gaah, can't wait!

Well, anyway.

There are rumors going on that they'll cut plenty of the kisses because of the station where this will air (TBS if I'm not wrong), do you think this will actually happen?

I agree with imbs that kisses are the main appeal of the manga and it is omnipresent in the manga too. It is also what most people know and remember the manga for. And it is also what people talk about after the anime is announced. As much as I think the comedy is great I would say if the kisses are gone in the anime, the backlash from fans and feelings of unfilled expectation from others may get too much for the anime to have a chance to succeed.

I would be surprised if they really cut kisses from this series. If you've read the manga, then you'll know that the kisses are quite literally the central plot point of Sakura Trick. There is no show without them, and they shouldn't have picked it up in the first place if they don't want to show girl x girl kisses on their station.

It's not like there's absolutely no chance of there being no kissing mind you. They might just have chosen sakura trick for the character designs to come up with their own typical sol, but that would be a frankly awful business decision no matter how much I do like the designs. I fully expect there to be kissing in this show.


i don't think so,, IMO the comedy is hilarious in this one and i love it so much,, so even if they cut the kissing scene i don't think it'll make it worse,, although, yes, there will be a lot of mad yuri fag..
and in the first place, i don't think they'll cut the kissing scene, judging from the visuals they showed..

In three different forums by now, but like I said, I don't even know if they're true. I can't read Japanese either, but I hope they'll adapt it closely to its content.
If those are Japanese forums, mind giving me the links so that I can have a look?

I just said I don't understand Japanese, therefore I don't know what the nips expect of Sakura Trick nor do I go to their forums, but I appreciate your offer regardless
OK, I thought when you said "in three different forums" I thought you meant to say they were the sources and you were not sure if they are true or not because you could not read Japanese, which is why I offered to translate the information there.

I just said I don't understand Japanese, therefore I don't know what the nips expect of Sakura Trick nor do I go to their forums, but I appreciate your offer regardless. One of the forums was portuguese, the other two were anonymous boards, whose credibility is very dubious most times, so I prefered not to believe their assumptions, even though I do admit I was kind of fearful that TBS wouldn't air certain scenes because of their explicitness.

Wonder where did you hear the rumor? Because I have not seen any of such rumors in Japanese forums I read. There are fans who speculate or guess by themselves, but I won't call them rumors - those are just personal guesses.

I've never watched any of the Precure series. I'm currently watching Kyousogiga (which I even have in my favorites) and it's such a shame Koto is voiced by her, she does try to make a sligthly different voice but she's not very good at it.
If anything I consider Kugyu to have one of the widest range of voices and the real shame is how people only remember her tsundere loli voice from shows like Shana and Zero no Tsukaima, but I'd agree that different people have different taste. I am not a fan of her voice, but I will recognize her versatility and skills.

But Kanamemo was years ago, right? Her recent roles like the one in Doki Doki PreCure uses an entirely different voice. She gave those voice performance in Kanamemo only because it was the voice required for the show (which is decided by the sound director).

^ What made you think Rie is likely to be in this?

Recently had to listen to her freaking horrible voice in Kanamemo (which wasn't a good show either but anyway) and I always hope she doesn't get roles in things I like.
