I'll gladly watch it if it's Kumota Haruko's manga. I love her art.

What's accurately a Josei series?

Wait so this is not an anime where our 16 yo protagonist is the most hentai boy at school when suddenly his 3 beautiful step sisters visit and tell him he's a magician and has the great power of guadalajara inside of him?

Damn I was looking forward to another one of those! Bummer.

Check genre: Josei, historical.

Nice, I always want to check out this kind of genre.

Check theme: hmm.. hmm... story rendition... hmm.. hmm.. storyteller...

Oh I might watch it. I like josei genre quite a bit cuz it has minimum action (better have no action than some mediocre one) and explores more of mature themes.

Well. This sounds absolutely amazing. I'm down.

The amount of Josei anime in the directory is way too low. It's good to see one getting animated finally after quite a while.

The synopsis does sound good. Will watch for sure.

Josei is better than OTHER shounen titles, I daresay. No nonsense fanservice, no humongous boobs, no fanboys lurking in, no bullshit. To hell some of the well known shounen written by a female: FMA, D.Grayman ( to name a few ) those aforementioned title made it big in west and east. Let me add it my list :)

Josei? Historical? YES PLEASE!

Cool, a josei. I added the manga to my PTR list a long time ago, but I don't think I found it anywhere. Looks like the anime will be my salvation.

We need more Josei. So badly.

Historical Josei? My god this can't be legal, but sign me up.

Sounds promising. Hope this one turns out well.

I'll watch it. :P As for the OVA, I'll wait until it's done airing, because I don't like watching OVA's while they're airing. ^^;
