Interesting, very interesting.
I haven't really watched anything with half the cast in it but otherwise it looks good and/or promising.

Was on my PTW since it was first announced "ages ago" anyway.

So much lolis in just one anime lol

Soooo looking forward to this.
The art looks pretty much like the manga, which is amazing.

Dat Hikasa role

I'm going to read the manga before this become like Umaru xD

I love how they're giving chance to newbie seiyuu/unpopular (yet) seiyuu

Looks cute. This series was already popular so I'm looking forward to it as well.

If Hajime Hyakkoku is in it I know that at least the soundtrack will be good.

Mar 27, 9:39 AM by ccdewa

4-koma manga again. NICE X3

They failed to answer the most important question: who's going to voice best girl Nenecchi?

Mar 27, 3:08 AM by scytheavatar

pretty good cast tbh

since the music producer(?) worked on k-on i bet either the OP or ED will be catchy

Mar 27, 1:15 AM by BoboSmrad

Ai Kayano and Yoko Hikasa in this.... nice choices

Mar 27, 12:12 AM by RayAdha

I always imagined Aoba having Ari Ozawa's voice, but Yuuki Takada being Aoba's voice is a nice choice too. Her role as Rin from Aikatsu! was good. :)

As a person who read the manga, i hope the pacing is better than the manga.

Yoko Hikasa (K-On)

Fixed, to credit her for an anime that isn't complete garbage :)

Also, really EXCITED to see Hyakkoku Hajime doing the music. Love his style.

Interesting cast selection :3 Might enjoy this a bit more. >-<

Mar 26, 11:24 PM by TheLittleRedHero
