Very good manga, the art and animation for the PV look great, and nice sounding newbie seiyuus. Really looking forward to this adaption, excitement overflowed from me as I watched the PV for some reason.

Seems to me like it's similar to ef a tale of memories.

Even though the synopsis is short, it sounds interesting.

o.o Cool. I've been reading this so I'm looking forward to it :)

This is an excellent example of good mix of shounen/seinen/shoujo style and show why such tag is getting less and less meaningful for a manga (and of course anime).

A surprise that this gets the push and picked to be animated though, have to say.

Interesting synopsis. Will give it a try.

This is as close to a shoujo anime I can get so i'll take it!

Now, to start my prayers and hope that this anime doesn't bomb in sales or hope that the manga gets a significant boost.

Though I'm not very hopeful...


Why would you hope that doesn't happen? It's generally a good thing if a manga or anime gets received well, you know, as it means the manga will get time to develop and won't get cancelled and if the anime sale is really well it might even open the path to a 2nd season?


I think she means that she hopes that the anime won't do badly in sales. Thus, 'bomb in sales'. I hope this anime does well in sales as well.

Sounds like it has a great chance of getting really annoying.

Nov 20, 2013 2:28 PM by Shuhan

The art fits perfectly for the story in the manga and i can't believe they are making an anime of this. I wonder what studio would be animating,

I hope it will not be a 10 minute episode anime.
