Read the first chapter and it's cute and kind of funny...

But got sold at Ono D anyway. So yeah I'll watch.

Ono's character looks like a ripoff of Tomoe from Kamisama Kiss though.

Kohina makes my heart skip beats from just looking at her, she's more adorable than Yune.

Looks interesting, plus the seiyuu were awesome so why not?

Worth a try by the looks of it. A series like this could go in all three directions (up, down or nowhere).
