This shouldn't turn out too bad, the females are cute and the story is interesting.

Holy crap, the fan service is strong in this one. I won't be watching this. Lol.


Lmao, God that was funny and i agree with u. Lately i have been cutting down on anime with too many fan services. Some of them are just ridiculous if you ask me.


Ridiculous isn't bad if it's done right, and it's often done decently at the very least in most ecchi and fanservice anime but you got those bad apples like Imocho, Eiken, and Manyuu Hikenchou that make people cringe unfairly at more of these types of anime coming out.


Yes, fan service can be a good thing. But it sends up red flags when the entire PV is text on black background, and fan service. Literally nothing else. That does not seem promising. Maybe it'll come out and be good. But I'm not going to bet on it, and it isn't like I can't come back and watch it later.

I usually don't even comment if something doesn't look interesting to me. But the name and description sounded decent, and I just needed a little push to convince me to add it to my queue. So I watched the PV, and holy wow. Lol. Really caught me by surprise.

So the website has Momoko in different outfits based on gods (dog, monkey, bird and a fourth I'm not sure), and I have to say, they look pretty awesome. I'm loving all the character designs.

I'll give it a try; it does look pretty fanservice-y though. As long as it's not over the top I'm fine with it.

But why...? Like a lot of people agreed with you and I don't particularly mind, but what makes you think that there's a chance of it being it? Is there something I'm missing about the source material??

Official site has two girls back to back holding hands and the one girl is smiling happily. That's confirmation of nothing, sure, but that's why it's "hoping" or "praying" not "expecting" let alone "knowing".


Ohh okay. All I did was read the synopsis and see the preview so I was a bit confused at where all the hoping was coming from.

Nobody else is sick of "kyun" thing?

More on topic, ehh mehh the PV looked okay, I guess. Nothing much was previewed except for the transformation thing. I did like the music on the other hand, and the synopsis is interesting.

If that's the case then I'll be more than happy to watch it.

Looks like complete garbage.

An internet novel getting an anime? That's really cool.

As for the fanservice, it sells, simple as that.

And suddenly I'm very interested in the Momotaro story. Plus I like the seiyuus listed that are reading the novel.
Will watch.
and it looks like something that will be totally awful to watch, will wait and lurk the forums to see if its any good.

The thing is, what part of the story is going to get the focus most? The historical folklore part or fanservice-worthy chronicles of a huge boobed girl? If it's the former, good i'm in. But if it's the latter (which seems to be more likely), i'll save myself the disappointment and walk away.

Story by Stark700


As in, he's the author?


Hey Stark's a pretty creative guy it's possible.

...anyways we always have "Story by whoever" when a user submits a news article. I obviously know you're kidding, but hey gotta put it out there lol.


No, it's not that I'm doubting his talent. I just wanted a confirmation. This was a first for me to see an internet/MAL fellow to have his own story get an anime, cause this doesn't happen everyday.


You made my day. A+.


Ahahaha you made my day too Leio, that misunderstanding was way too cute :3

Anyway, I'll keep an eye on this Anime :D

I don't know, not really interested. I'll see if to watch after a PV or something.

She looks like the character from Ookami-san and her Seven Companions that is the Momotarou character. (The one with the "dumplings".)

Seems too generic and not so interesting...

Lol, I'm not the author of this series. I only submitted an article.
Anyways, I have mixed feelings on this so far.
