Idol, and based on a smartphone game. I'm curious as to how "original" such an anime can go.

You would pass on anything that wasnt a homosexual male.
That explains why I still respond to you.

Did you just admit to being gay?

This is hardly original.


why does it have to be?

Nothing original here.
Also, the PV wasn't very enlightening about the animation or other information about the show.


designs looked cute and possibly 3d.

I think the pink lumpy space princess gijinka character is cute. :U
Actually, she's a black sheep, and it ticks me off a little that they couldn't give her a little more shade. Like really? The character was black before. Japan, what else is new? Complete white washing, I can't believe it. U: :U

The bunny character is just a bunny version of that one Touhou character.

Anyway, I might end up watching it.

blame K-ON for starting this idol anime trend
K-ON has absolutely nothing to do with this lol. Maybe blame Idol Master or Love Live for its success. But well, I'm pretty sure the cause is the popularity of the 48 group. Blame Aki-p maybe. Not that they wanted these kinds of Anime to constantly appear though.

I like the colofrul character design. Plus the song in the PV is kinda catchy aaaaand this time of shows are a good waste of time in rainy days :D

Moa is so cute, I'll watch this although Sanrio best not air this in January, it won't sell due to Idolm@ster and Kancolle. I'm also surprised the company would market a product that's not Hello Kitty like this to Otaku (they have an ok record with anime but it's all kids fare).

I saw Sanrio and immediately thought of Zashikibuta. Looked at the site...nope my lil pig's not there. Now I'm sad.

Original anime based on a game, huh. It doesn't looks interesting to me, but I might try to watch it.

Sep 8, 2014 7:22 AM by Makuro

More shit. I am not surprised, though.

The characters looks unattractive to me, i`ll pass.
