Today, a wraparound jacket band on the third volume of "Junketsu no Maria" announced that its anime adaptation has been green-lit. Creator Ishikawa Masayuki's other work includes Moyashimon which got an anime adaptation back in late 2007.

The manga began serialization in 2008. It was published in good! Afternoon and ended earlier this year.

Sounds kinda bland. Other than the comedy, it doesnt seem like it has much to offer though i can be completely wrong since a lot of synopsis don't describe anime/manga well.

Well it looks fun so I'll probably check it out :D and Moyashimon looks fun too so I added it on my plan to watch :3

No thanks.

not sure if i'll watch that one

It's ecchi so it should be worth a watch even though that synopsis is strange.

wtf is up with that synopsis

This sounds like it could be incredibly weird. My interest has been piqued.

historical action seinen with a female MC? Yea... oh, wait, of course it has to be ecchi...

Guess I will pass on this :/


To my suprise, it is suprisingly interesting and the ecchi wasn't just cheap pantyshots. It's by the creator of Moyashimon as well, so I'd still say it's worth to check it.
Everyone constantly going on about her virginity is a bit annoying, though. However, still better than all the romcom/harem/fantasy/ecchi LN adaptions we get these days.


Okay, the Moyashimon creator being behind this is a slight bonus, though I'm still skeptical and will probably wait for some opinions once it starts airing. Somehow I dislike ecchi in historical settings particularly much :/

It doesn't sound that interesting but I will maybe give the adaptation a try.

Not really familiar with Moyashimon, but that and Junketsu both seem to have some pretty interesting settings. I'll likely give this a go.

Interesting.

That synopsis caught my interest. I got to read the manga.

I am excited. If it is anywhere as good as Moyashimon it will be worth watching.

Also we can hope for a complete adaptation since the manga ended.

This is a manga that has caught my eyes years ago, not least because he drew Moyashimon, and the subject is intriguing, though I cannot call myself as a fan of the art style... Would be more tricky to adapt to anime though, which is why I was slightly surprised when I saw the news on Japanese sites earlier today.

Lol @ the synopsis. Might give this one a try~

Oct 4, 2013 7:25 AM by Stark700

Doesn't sound very intriguing in my opinion. :/
