Awww yeaa.

I read the first chapter and it was pretty interesting, so I'll of course watch it when it airs. I can't believe I'll finally get to see Morishima's art animated!

I'm so damn hyped for this one.

I heartily look forward to this as Penguindrum is legitimately one of my all-time favorite anime ever. Ikuhara is something of a genius in my eyes after both Utena and Penguindrum, in fact.

I can't wait to find out the seiyuus. I really want Ikuhara to keep working with Noto Mamiko - really love her voice acting. Totally see her as Kureha - very similar to Sawako from KnT. HanaKana could also suit really well though.
As for Ginko... damn, so complicated! I can exactly imagine the voice... but I don't remember neither the seiyuu name, nor the character name from another anime, which I'm referring to xD

I'll wait for a PV then decide because the synopsis is kind of eh.

This show is going to be really empowering for female lesbian bears. Looking forward to it.

I read the synopsis from the manga's page and it looks interesting to me. And because it has Yuri!

OMG YEAH I'm delighted :D <3

More Ikuhara!! It says yuri in the tags, maybe it will be more straightforward this time?

Well, I'm... not surprised.

Those lesbian bears are definitely an obscure metaphor for something.

"The "intellectual fantasy" follows Kureha, a "transparent" high school girl who is plain and is barely noticed by others. Seemingly every night, she has a "dream about a bear and transparent storm." In this dream, her mysterious classmate Ginko Yurishiro appears in the form of a bear."

Kuroko no Bear Dream.
