Ahhh I'm looking forward to it!
The cast sounds good too :D
Hope it won't turn out to be an over-hyped production -crosses fingers-

Wow, an adaptation would be amazing! ♥
I like the Manga a lot, it's simply, not pushing too hard but still very fascinating in a calm and quiet way...So looking forward to it ♥

i wonder whats gonna happen because the manga isn't even to a point i think they can make the whole anime series.


cuz in the manga they haven't even gotten to a love relationship yet its all just like innocent looking at each other and embarassing situations. Since it is a romance anime i expect it to have romance and not just the SOL parts its mostly had so far.

***********SPOILER END************
***********SPOILER END************
***********SPOILER END************

so i wonder if the mangaka is going to go really fast in the manga or go ahead of the manga in the anime guessing that its only going to be around 25 episodes like most anime are.

The manga's pretty good. I just need to continue reading it again xD

Let's hope the anime won't disappoint.

Gotta catch up to the manga~
