Not sure if this will be my cup of tea but those character designs certainly are unique and interesting.

Best girl Tsuyu looks great in anime art. Mineta's art looks goofy as well, cant wait for lols.

I have complete faith in Bones, cant wait wait for this.

I can't wait to see how Mineta's VA portrays his comedic side. He's fucking hilarious.

There's just something peculiarly cute about Tsuyu Asui...
Is it her long tongue? xD

Minoru is going to have Alice/Aoi Yamada's VA? Pretty cool, her playing males is quite rare.

Those are some bizarre character designs. Not sure if this will be my type of show. I'll have to decide whether or not I actually want to watch this.

The designs are unique to say the least.

Tsuyu looking real nice there, liking the VA choice

Jan 17, 2016 7:28 PM by removed-user

Not going to watch this, but Bones animating these silly character designs should be great.
