I'll probably check this out, even if the art looks a bit too Lucky Star-ish for my tastes.

I knew it!!

I thought the idea was somewhat similar to Haruhi's ENOZ rock band. It's going to be awesome!!!

Oh shit even if I knew this was coming it didn't fail to surprise and excite me.

Look at the art, I can't afford to miss this one. Hmm this will be my first time to watch a music-genre anime.

The characters look like a cross between Lucky Star characters and Haruhi characters, more on the LS blobby side though.
