Ahaha that bishi Hachiken. Glorious. And as it's been mentioned, Tamako's actor takes the cake.

The actors all look great, they look like the characters :D This looks like it will be a fun movie.

*Yawn*

slow news day?

WEll this only proves my point on just how overrated generic slice of life propaganda is.

One of the better shows this season too. Lot of manga/anime getting Live Action adaptations lately it seems, wonder if it has anything to do with the huge success of that Yamato one.

I really like the anime, so I will definitely give this a try

I'm not really a fan of live action but we'll see also the anime series is on my plan to watch I'm just waiting for it to finished airing.

Thats nice to hear! The shows premise really does shout 'LIVE-ACTION ME!' so i'm happy we're getting it sooner than later.
Though some of the faces (like the Equastrian club supervisor) will be hard to do irl, so yeah :/

Hm, this news probably limits the chances of me seeing more than the announced split season in anime format so I'm not too happy :/
Why must live-action adaptions always grab the best titles :P
