A manga series will also be announced in the March 2016 issue of the magazine, which will go on sale on January 30.

If it's written by Wataru Watari, it better not be some girl's only group that only does cute things and act moe. From the guy who wrote Yahari Ore no Seishun Love Comedy wa Machigatteiru, I expect greatness from him. Also, this is his second collaboration this year, first one being Qualidea Code, which I hope doesn't mean that Oregairu is nearing the end.

Wow...illustration is adorable )))

I simply like the illustration.
Still, I should have faith in Watari more. Just can't imagine Watari + moe + seiyuu idea.

Hopefully this'll become another great story from Watari.

Watari Wataru? I'm in.

If the Oregairu writer is on board then I will probably be watching. Hopefully this doesn't go too deep into drama, though.

Seiyuu+moe=most definitely watching. Also, the art reminds me a lot of Girlfriend Kari's.

Is it just me , or the face looks too big compared to the body.

Well, the art looks cute so I hope anime will also be good. Instant PTW

That girl definitely doesn't look like an university student at all..

She looks exactly like Kokomi Shiina, and she looked like a college freshman so I don't agree with you.

Like the art but the title sounds kinda bad lol.

Might watch.

Will watch because of wataru watari.

Also, the artwork is really cute lol.

Looks like wataru watari is the current gen urobuchi in japanese otaku base after looking how his name is getting attached to so many new projects.

This is something for me. Wataru give me present again. I love you wataru.

Wataru watari....K
Hoping for new flick from other seiyuu genre....
They show before how the mangaka began their journey before they achieved what they had (Bakuman)

Now its how to become seiyuu.... I've always admired them cause their job is not so easy and how the anime works...

Oh, being in the midst of reading Oregairu now and having watched all the anime, I have high hopes for this! I dont think itll be my AOTY (thatll prob be Erased atm whichll be hard to top I suspect) but given his inspiration from Shirobako, I think thisll probably be a very solid piece.

Liking the artwork and original stuff are always great!

synopsis kinda reminds me of sore ga seiyuu, but looking forward to this especially only cause of the author wataru watari, who did oregairu (Yahari Ore no Seishun Love Comedy wa Machigatteiru). looking forward to a nice laid back series with this.

Only reason I have any faith in this is Wataru Watari. I'll probably only watch it if it gets decent reviews after the first episode (when it eventually comes out).
