I doubt if the anime will be as good as the manga

Art looks quite boring to me.

Orange had pretty standard 'shoujo manga artstyle', so I'm not really sure what you have expected to begin with :v

Very excited to see KanaHana voice Naho. I think she fits Naho's character perfectly.

The girls look uglier as hell, even retro shoujo manga has better art than that.

bye bye Erased hello Orange

and Orange will be the next victim by getting tons of haters.

Not gonna lie I wasn't impressed and I read the series It just felt so simple and Erased was awful When I first watched it I thought it was fantastic then it went downhill

Kana Hanazawa as VA? Seems suitable for Naho. :)

The art looks (uhm) so mature?! (Idk if that's the right word to use for this, but still)
I'm sure this won't be a disappointment!!

The character designs are nice, though not as pretty and refined as they are in the manga. No qualms about the casting, but I hope KanaHana voices Naho in the same vein as Akane Tsunemori rather than Shiina Mayuri.

Kana <3

Hope this doesnt turn out to be disappointing in the end.

KanaHana is gonna fucking rip my heart out

KanaHana for Naho?
It's nice to hear, she matches up with her role lol.

After finishing the manga, I'm really hyped for this. The designs are pretty. Summer is going to be good. And I think Kana fits Naho.

Feels are coming

Prepare your napkins

I literally finished the manga just a while ago !! This is sooo awesome !! >w<

I'm more concerned on who'll voice my Kakeru and Suwa, tbh.
