Her name should be Miwa 美羽(ミワ)

I read through the other characters names and I read this, Rusty Nail. X JAPAN song ♥
I seriously like this. Masamune is so freaking tall, 214cm. While Takumi is just 157cm.

It's good that older series are being animated. Maybe they will start a bandwagon and start animating more older manga series. Hopefully.

I dont know if that would be a good thing, if everyone started flocking to adapt older series over new ones, then the industry would become stagnant and new ideas + originality would lower



I'm not saying that they should only adapt older ones, but they should pick them up from time to time.
well then thats not a bandwagon, currently the industry is already time to time doing older adaptions

The elder brother is 28 and has a baby face! He sure loves to cross-dress too.
I like this already. Teaser site: http://www.ichijinsha.co.jp/special/zerosum/stpl/

Detective? Slice-of-life? If this actually pulls out something like Mushishi and gives us more insights on philosophy and stuff, then gents, we've found a winner.

Look at the art, look at the shoujo tag, and read the synopsis. Now, you still think so?

I'd rather have them animate shoujo romance instead ):

Sounds interesting, I'll check it out.
