The announcement revealed that the cast of the visual novel will reprise their roles in the TV anime. An official website and Twitter account for the anime adaptation were also announced, but neither are active yet.

Buntarou doesn't know what he wants to do in the future. He does not have any kind of dream that he wants to pursue, so currently he just spends his days hanging around with his friends. One day, his classmate Sayuki asks him if he wants to help with development of a gal game. She says that she had become interested in his help after she read one his works intended for the drama club.

Buntarou doesn't know anything about gal games, but Sayuki claims that she has the ability to make it a success. Can they make the game, and will it be a success like she claims it will be? This is the story of youths taking a daring step into the unknown... (Source: Otaku Lair)

Hum....This doesn't remind me of Saenai Heroine no Sodatekata, the concept isn't bad, art also seems good, plus KanaHana. We really need more light-hearted VNs adaptations.

Man this quite reminds me of Saenai Heroine no Sodatekata.Well I'll give it a try!

From the 45 minutes or so I played of the VN's trial, it was pretty much made to be an anime. It's structured exactly like one.

Have to say that this killed all my interest in playing more of it since it was supposed to be Romeo's big return to the VN industry. Apparently the anime is more important now? Whatever. I'll probably pass on the anime too since the whole appeal of the project is Romeo's writing.

For me too, only interested in this because of Romeo. I'll give it a try

A lot of not-so-great VNs. Hopefully this one is different.

Oh boy, many characters will suffer.


+ 1000000

If I watch the anime, it will only for him. That guy's drama can be hilarious sometimes.

If this is anything near Shirobako it might be cool. Probably it won't, though :D

If Romeo writes all the script, then what is Takahiro doing here? Idea guy?

Btw, will watch for Romeo.

I wish they'd just focus on making an anime or a vn instead of both at the same time.
Or make two completely different works in parallel based on the same story concept.
This just makes me sad.

I'll still read it though since it's Romeo.

Oct 23, 2015 3:19 AM by Laniaka

I guess I'll watch it.

Kinda annoyed that it's getting an anime before the VN even get released, though given how Romeo's games sell it might be for the best. It's going to be annoying to have to dodge spoilers though.

Also I can't help but laugh at the way people react to Takahiro's involvement when he has no involvement with the writing.

Not a fan of VNs that aren't even released, much less translated, getting anime. It usually puts me off both the novel and the anime.

When companies front-load merchandising/ adaptation/ spin-off licensing like that it makes me think that they want to cash in as much as possible before people know it's nothing special.

What has translation gotta do with everything?

Nothing. The only thing it has to do with, is your inability to identify the operative point in my statement. "much less xyz" is a statement that is besides the point, supplemental to the primary point.

Which is that this is an adaptation done almost simulatenously with the source material release.

While untranslated VNs being adapted is mildly annoying, I'll deal with them, but announcements of adaptations of completely unreleased VNs are pretty much dealbreakers.
