Synopsis sounds promising.

The short was kind of the most shoujo-ish thing I had ever seen. I can not imagine this selling, and it is a kids manga....so I feel like...shorts?

Sounds interesting. Maybe I'll watch the OVA just to see how it is.

Im kind of interested in this show for some very odd reason, but thats just me, maybe because of the anime cast voice acting was announced, or maybe because I want to see something refreshing. It just looks like that.

Randomly found the first OVA and got annoyed they were missing most of them. If this picks up after the OVAs then I won't touch it, hopefully it remakes what the OVAs did (not) do.

I think this could be really interesting,if the show shows the development of 12 old girl in a more serious way. From the art,it looks more like a moeblob/ kind of cheesy comedy though. (but thats not too bad either)

Mmmhhh...doesn't look promising.

Jan 25, 2016 10:44 PM by Xenocrisi

Hmm...I might give it a few episodes. I'm on the fence about this though.

Read a bit of the manga when it first came out and it was cute. The Anime OVAs are average, though.

Yuuto Takao: Soma Saito

Meh, doesn't seem like it'll be any good and the cast isn't that interesting (if they keep it). Somehow I'm not surprised by this adaptation though.

Jan 25, 2016 10:30 PM by Zazie122

Sounds like a decent idea in theory, but I just don't really see it working properly or being taken as seriously as it really should be. Don't think I'll bother.

I'm not so sure about watching this in TV anime, OVA was ok personally from lack of what I watched.
