> sees the loli front twintails abomination...


> sees the series description that sounds even more generic chuuni than kyoukai no kanata was.

Yep, passing this one. Teens will eat it up tho.

It seems kyoani only does two types of projects - moe SOL or chuuni edgy moe.

The cast looks really great but I'm worried about the seems really generic and stupid for a Kyoani work. Please don't disappoint me...I'm counting on you, Ishihara...

Hayami Saori, Uchida Maaya, Uesaka Sumire and Shimono Hiro, sounds like fun.

some random guesses/translation...
"Team E": senpai & houhai relationship.
Blue hair interested in everyone?
MC tied to everyone but he likes red hair?
Lonely Club Advisor. Oh school magic battle club trope confirmed?
He only has one male classmate.

To anyone that has read the light novel/knows about it; is this a harem?
Are you kidding?

On the promotional artwork designed explicitly with the deliberate impression of representing the show to potential consumers, the girls are front and center, while the main character is kinda-sorta able to be seen way in the back. Almost like they're saying "PLEASE DON'T NOTICE HIM".

It's clear what this story is going to be about.

Huh, Thread Starter didn't mention SCREEN MODE performing the OP song? Too bad, cause this band sounded pretty badass in both Kuroko and Yatterman and might be the only reason this show's worth giving a try.

Might be alright. I'll check it out.
