Looks interesting. Will be waiting for PVs and more info since I can't find the manga.

I like how they're wearing stockings and garter belt.

One of the best newcomers in the industry. I look forward to see her in this anime and many other future anime.

I bet it'll be a short anime :3


According Moonphase, it will be the Second TBS/BS-TBS Anime for the Springseason 2014 beside 'Bokura wa Minna Kawaisou'.

And i don't think, it will be a 5-Minute-Anime

Yes, yes, yes!
