Looks like the SSB time slot is turning into a regular short anime time slot?

Even the author Oshikiri found it surprising that it got anime adaptation because the character design does not look immediately appealing (though it is standard Oshikiri style).

Looks like it is a heart-warming SoL + adventure kind of story. Will stay tuned.
Looks good to me too.

I find it funny when the mangaka are surprised they get adaptation. I guess not all of them write their work with that in mind which is what I was expecting. Certainly many light novels seem to be designed that way from the get go.

I lol'd @ the tag comment on the manga for this:

"I wanna have po-chan as well."

Sounds fun! More 3minutes series is always welcomed! But I want AIURA s2 for some reason

Read a bit of the manga to get a feel, I think this is the closest I'll get to a Sekai Oni anime.
