Hopefully since this is a prequel a certain unpleasant character won't be there.

It's kind of annoying how an actual part of the story- an integral part in the main characters lives offering insight and explanation into how they act around each other and how they know each other, is pushed to "extras". And useless fanservice was plopped smack dab in the middle of the series.


Yeah I agree with this fully. I have no idea why they decided to put that OVA-esque episode in the middle of the series. It just interrupted the flow and everything. They should have used that episode for something else, maybe backstory, like this.


Yet that episode was quite well received in Japan I believe.

More than any other episode. I didn't watch it btw. I dropped the anime before that, just thought I'd mention this.

This and episode 6 in the actual series should have been switched.

- Fan service sells

- Moe sells

- Character development doesn't sell

Ugh I hate when entries move from completed to airing again.

So that's why the ONA went from my completed to watching, looking forward to the prequel.


Same here, I just checked it now :)

I look forward to more idol eps. I found those hilarious and sadly more entertaining than the main series.

More megane? I'm sold!

Mar 25, 2014 10:23 AM by Meruru_Arls

Sweet, more Mitsuki, and maybe even Mirai :3
Backstories are interesting for me.

sounds interesting, may watch... though i dislike episode 0s/prequel to series episodes... I would love to see more of the siblings

Mar 24, 2014 6:55 PM by Zelot

This looks interesting. It'll be nice to see how the siblings and Akkey meet!

Can't wait for this, Kyoukai no Kanata was so good even though it was somewhat cliché.

Mar 24, 2014 3:32 PM by R4vel

Yay for more KnK :)

I don't think it'll do much to fix that clusterfuck of a story. But I'll watch anyway

Mar 24, 2014 3:26 PM by SeibaaHomu

Hmm, I will watch it as long as Hiroomi is there.

Mar 24, 2014 2:13 PM by Mayuka

At least the episode will look interesting. Will watch I guess.

I never was able to stomach the specials for this ;/

Looking forward to the past.

Can't wait, sounds interesting. Unlike most people, I really liked this series.
