I really like the cast and I.G., but the Manga's character design is pretty strange looking.
Well, I will still watch this.

I guess giving it the 3-episode rule wouldn't hurt.

More adaptation by I.G? Nothing can go wrong with an adaptation by I.G Port I guess unless the source material is really sub-par. Man, I wish Tokyo Ghoul was done by I.G instead of Pierrot ;.;

You're not the only one, trust me. I have fantasized enough about how TG would turn out if it was picked up by I.G.

>Female lead

Looking pretty good so far-


ecchi tags on low read manga should be taken with a grain of salt, there are alot of unwarranted tags

Been a while since I.G. did something like this. Definitely gonna check it out

Wondering if Production IG will keep the ecchi in the first place...
Synopsis is decent.

But if it's the mangaka from Moyashimon, it'll probably be somewhat educational.
+ Production IG quality.

Will watch.

I'll give this a chance, but the synopsis does leave a slight bad impression.

I think I may give this anime a try!

Why is this even tagged as ecchi? Outside of slightly skimpy outfits, it's pretty harmless from what I've read

It seems like 90% of the news I read about new productions and upcoming stuff are about ecchi anime :|
at least people wont complain about fan-service after seing ecchi tag...Maybe

It is from Moyashimon author hahaha. Liked the female character design. I hope it stays true to the mangaka art style. I hated how that was changed for the 2nd season of Moyashimon.

The casts are quite known. However, the synopsis killed it. I don't mind the ecchi, although the character design looks off. I'm thinking twice about watching this.

Probably I won't give it a shot, I'm not a big fan of ecchi shows.

Sep 1, 2014 6:44 AM by Sensus_97

Synopsis looks boring to me and i hate the character design.
I`ll pass.

I wonder if the anime will faithfully follow the manga storyline.
