Doesn't look like something that would get a high score on my list. But if it gets subbed, I'll watch it.

You know, I kind of get the negativity accociated with this type of show, but this looks like it could actually be fun, and I normally don't go for stuff like this. It also helps that unlike most shows like this that get pumped out, it doesn't look cheap or low budget (which I guess is expected from a branch company of Satelight). As Kira01 said though, nice character desgins, and the staff seems good enough, so we'll see.

I see maids and fan service. I'll bite, at least for one episode.

The loud noise... Apparently, if you don't refresh the page and right-click to play the trailer on the "coming soon" page, the loud train-wreck noise plays in the background on top of the song.

As for the anime itself, let me guess... It's an ecchi love comedy. The least to say, it's what the trailer is trying to give people an impression of. On the contrary, it could be something else. You can't really judge how an anime will turn out based on a list of staff members and a 30-sec trailer. The character designs are good. I wonder what the seiyuu lineup will be..

I'm going with stupid and these types of shows are plentiful anyway. A reverse harem would have been better.

another harem anime...
gonna watch it anyway :D

i just hope the main male protagonist aint the usual stereotype gentle, indecive and always embarrassed wuss w/o balls who is played around by everyone all the time... im kinda sick of that... and i dont wanna see an orgy of nosebleeds either

when is it coming out?

Mar 16, 2009 7:22 PM by Rei_12

From watching the trailer, I'm hoping for the best and it be something like Zero no Tsukaima. Only time will tell though so for now......we wait.

phew, the title sounded like some reverse harem that I would never watch. The art seems a bit weird for me for this type of show, especially considering I've gone through 51 episodes of it with Shugo Chara. Never the less, worth checking out since I generally like these types of shows.

Well I wont judge a anime with only a trailer on boobs and panties :P
So il guess il take a look at this one when its out and i've I got time.

Mar 16, 2009 6:33 PM by JustiX-NL

Ugh, how stupid. Just what we need, MORE boobs and panties.

Mar 16, 2009 6:28 PM by MagicalEmi

hmm...the art is pretty much identical to shugo chara's after all. too bad it had to be wasted on something like this.
