That cast is really good :O

I wanted to watch it anyway, but with those seiyuu... seriously xD Actually sometimes I get lured by the awesome cast, just to end up watching ridiculous anime *cough otoge adaptations cough*, but somehow I have a slight hope this could be at least a little funny...

Pretty sure they did announce anime cast before.
What's new is main staff and airing season with teaser site.

Of course.

This is coming from a girl who loves age gap romances plus a big shoujo fan but I'm sorry, I will give this one a great big pass. The main girl is a doormat and the story is wonky IMO.

I hope the Betsufure announcement coming out next month for Watashi ga Motete Dousunda is an anime because that manga is amazing.

Still, good for the fans! The seiyuu line up is amazing not to mention the art in the manga is GREAT.

But, I shall skip this.

Awesome voice actors!!
Will PTW!!

Feb 26, 9:28 PM by Meigetsu

I was planning to overlook this one but the seiyuu list is so fecking good I am willing to give this a try!

Feb 26, 9:01 PM by shanimebib

Sugita <333 that's a reason to watch.

Feb 26, 8:37 PM by Cash

another manga adaptation by deen...happy to see sugita on the seiyuu cast.

Feb 26, 8:19 PM by Monjoex

Impressive line-up of seiyuus, looks like it's going to be the sole reason I'll be checking this out. Can't possibly expect anything from DEEN.

Feb 26, 8:14 PM by dilation

Definitely looking forward to this. Good to know that Takahiro Sakurai will be voicing. ^^
