The only one that concerns me is Ayana voicing Hotaru. I cant picture her annoying tsun voice coming out of her. Now, she does have good variety so it's not guaranteed she'll use her tsun voice.

Like if she uses her voice from Kotori/Kirino/Suguha etc, then I think it'll ruin the character.

She does have an excellent deeper, mature voice that I think would fit really well. Combine that voice but with a hyper attitude and craziness, then it might work. Something like her role as Yamato from KanColle.

I think she can do an excellent job. She was the one who voiced female Gintoki after all. That was one of the most entertaining voice acting I've seen, especially when she had to constantly switch from serious to comically annoying

ya u are the only one because most of us already know there is no yandere


Yeah right, believe me looking at her expression and not reading a manga she looks like yandere to me too.



She just looks like it.. :)


Maybe this anime will only have 3+ minutes per episode???

Overall I'm quite happy with the choices expecially with Shigehito Takayanagi (Kami nomi zo Shiru Sekai) as the director and with Kanetoshi Kamimoto (Dakara Boku wa, H ga Dekinai.) who will design the cracters!

I think the rest of the cast will be great.

Abe fits Coconutsu.

Keiji as Yo will be fucking amazing. He does the comedic dad roles so well. I honestly cannot fucking wait.

Manami has a good variety of voices and I think there are a lot of different voice styles that would fit Saya. So I think she'll do a good job no matter what direction she takes it. I trust her.

Tatsuhisa will be great too. He's awesome when it comes to those hilarious annoying bro friends like Yuuji from Baka Test, Ban, Haru. So he's going to fit the role of the obnoxious best friend perfectly in this show.

Decent cast choices. What I hope is that they capture the comedy of the manga for this adaptation.


I have my hopes up. You were the one who started the thread with the Key Visual + character designs showed. Those designs looked amazing. I legit laugh every time I see them because they matched their crazy facial expressions so damn well they look straight out of the manga.

Don't worry it will be good, I used to hate her because she only gets tsundere imouto roles that always ruin whole shows, until i played PSO2, trust me she has the talent to pull off a beautiful voice, rest depends on director though.

The male MC who wants to be a mangaka has Mashiro's seiyuu, that's kind of awesome. Going to watch this.
