Posting this because I've been playing this game for over a year now. I'll probably watch it out of curiosity to see what they've done with it. But to be honest, the game is, like many Japanese mobile games, grindtastic that encourage you to spend (possibly to play without, but you'll need to be very lucky with rolls), yet somewhat addictive. They also have a very rich cast in the game (there will introduce the 36th girl of the "harem" tomorrow). As a light novel though, I think that the content is -very- light, so I can't say that I have high expectation for the anime.

I wonder what will actually happen in this series, the synopsis is a bit uh.....sparse.
Depending on the actual characters, that voice cast seems pretty cray cray as well.

Hmm... It has been a while since that from Square Enix a medium of them to as anime adapted was (like Bamboo Blade - I wanna a sequel still of it...>_>!!!). It looks very top the graphic, so smooth... - You wouldn't expect from J.C.Staff that they so a clear craphic making would. But I guess that the anime studios on a evolution jump are...xD

January will be good start for, I can't wait...^_^

I know about this game, but I never played it due to obvious reasons.

I may watch it though since it has Yui and Kaori in the main cast.

I mean at this rate people should just go back to get LN adaptations since now Game Adaptations are being a very often trend recently (Not like I'm complaining since I want some more of these).

It doesn't look too bad, might be a guilty pleasure for me to be fairly honest.

Hmm JC Staff getting a bit busy next Winter.

It'll probably be bad with the only redeeming feature being cute girls. Can't be any worse than Gunslinger Stratos was though.... I hope.

Lol a "light novel style" RPG? That sounds like a recipe for disaster. I might not watch it as it airs, but I'll probably check it out when it's done. At the very least I'll be able to hear Miyuki Sawashiro and HanaKana.

Doesn't looks special, but the cast is good and the designs looks cute. Might give a watch.
