It has books so how can I not watch it? It sounds interesting too! Plus, most of the voice actors have been in anime I have seen before.

Pictures! Can I post them???

As long as its not GONZO, I'm okay with it.

Sounds great coming from a person with a Gonzo anime on his favorite list, lol. XD


I'll have you know Seto no Hanayome was a joint production between Gonzo and AIC. AIC provided the main staff in terms of Directors, scriptwriters and so forth while Gonzo were there to just do the animation.

Sorry to disappoint you, but I'll have you know that the "main staff" of SetoHana wasn't affiliated with AIC in any way. Both the director and the scriptwriter were (and are) independent workers not involved with either AIC or Gonzo. More than that, the director Seiji Kishi worked on some anime produced by GDH (Gonzo's parent company) before. He also worked with Artland and Satelight. The scriptwriter Makoto Uezu was initially employed by the Studio Orphee, then he went freelance and wrote screenplays for some Studio Deen series before working on SetoHana. Please, don't ridicule yourself further, my friend. All that AIC provided for this show was animation assistance, nothing more. So, technically, it's a Gonzo show (since they still handled the main work). :)

It's pretty off topic but let me tell you one thing. AIC did most of the anime production and Gonzo acted as a producer (製作者). Director Kishi and AIC staff disclosed it in a symposium of Seto no Hanayome.

Article about the symposium (Moura)


「『GONZOxAIC』ってなってますけど、制作はAICでやってますんで褒めてください!」
Although it's credited as GONZO x AIC, the anime production was done by AIC. So please praise us!


Well then, other than looking silly on the internet, I learnt something new about one of my favourite anime shows. Thanks :P

Art and synopsis looks interesting. Looking forward to this anime.

Give it a try, its one of the funniest show I've watched in recent times. :P

The art looks cool :3 hopefully the story will be too.

Interesting :D

Jun 14, 2009 11:31 AM by stfngp

Interesting. I'll see what happens.

This reminds me vaguely of WH40K - the Dark Library and the Wraithbone matrices of Craftworlds.

Did I read it right? Hatsukoi right?

It's a little bit serious in the first impression but might as well try.
