Wait, wtf. LOL!

So it's like Boshin War, Mecha, and Harem?

Let's name that guy in the middle 'Ishida" or "Toshizo".

...

Also: Edo + JC Staff + robots, trainwreck in the making if you ask me.


My thoughts exactly.

JC STAFF mecha??? Thank god acgt is helping.


ACGT's work is far worse overall (whether they're producing their own series or working as an episode contractor). That they've been hired isn't surprising though given their existing relationship with Takashi Watanabe.

This sounds utterly fucking repulsive on every single level. Even the character designs are unappealing.

More girls than guys on the poster means that it will probably be terrible.


No you can't say that.

Besides, who knows? This is only the first promo picture. Hopefully when more characters are revealed, there will be a good balance of males and females.
The word "virgin" is used in some endearing, valiant way as the core characterization and inspiration of the main character.

Keep dreaming.


I am pretty sure their escapist daydreams are the reason for these kind of anime to exist.

Ok....that DID put me off but yeah, I'm gonna keep dreaming until I see more characters. Most likely this will be mecha with history with ecchi which could still work out btw, but I'll try and keep my hopes up.

wow. the storyline sounds terrible. seems like it's gonna be ecchi too and that tagline is pretty embarrassing

Edo period..., robots... wtf. Doesn't sound like something I'd watch.


Thought the same thing, although the character on the left on the official site looks really cute. Conflicted..


Thinking the same thing and i'm kind curious too

The mecha part is a bit concerning and wtf is with the tagline? The only conclusion to that I can see is Onigami can only be powered or even piloted by virgins.

Dec 26, 2013 8:52 AM by Hoppy

Wow another mecha anime..............the next year is going to be great (at least for me)!!!

Dec 26, 2013 6:54 AM by Dragon_Slayer_X

I'll give it a try because the girl on the left looks like she has a fox tail, and me so it shows with kitsune girls. plus me a sucker for edo period stuff, but I'm a bit worried about the whole mecha part mixed in it.
