Oh looks like another Otome game adaptation I'll be watching xD Also "Quarrel Battle"? They have debates? Surprised the seiyuu's aren't doing either OP nor ED considering a few of them are pretty good singers too.


They have fighting matches. It's just pressing buttons though similar with rhythm games without the rhythm. We might get to see actual matches in the anime though.


Oh cool, well I hope the fights will look good, thanks.

This seems pretty nice to pass the time on, but come on a short for this? ;;

wow!
I saw a cute fanart of this show in a Yaoi forum months ago. I've been looking for them for weeks, and then gave up, thinking it was just OCs of some artist. Glad i was wrong!
I'm gonna watch this. Sadly is a short.

It probably will get a full tv anime after this one? depends on how much attention it gets in Japan.

We'll get to see Houou and Totomaru anyway so that's all it matters~


It's been a while since I saw an otome anime short get a full TV anime later on. ;_;

Happy to get anything related to Kenka Banchou Otome after enjoying the game so much! A bit sad that it's only 10 mins, since the material is great for a full length anime. But I am optimistic that this will bring popularity to the series and people will check out the game and we will get more merch for this.
