Art style looks to be shooting for Makoto Shinkai-esque, but obviously way less budget. Still looks nice though

Anyways, I hope this series comes close to Oregairu in terms of its "Romance" aspect.

Edit: After re-watching the video I posted above, I'm also hoping the "Dramatic" aspect of this series comes close to Oregairu.

If that's what you're hoping for, you should've taken a look at the writer and director instead since the studio is only responsible for the visuals and animation. You do know that Oregairu is a LN adaptation right?

The artstyle is pretty damn nice, the PV is rather the selling to me.

Considering Seiji Kishi hasn't actually directed a pure "romance" series (as far as I can see its more of a romance I guess), I think this will be interesting. Drama can be so-so considering he can be a hit or miss, but he has been hitting more than missing recently for me.

There's two reasons why I want to watch this series even though the PV didn't blow me away that much:

1) It's being produced by Studio feel, who also made the 2nd Season of "My Teen Romantic Comedy SNAFU" or whatever the Japanese name of that series was called. I'll just call it "Oregairu" for short..

2) Nao Touyama is doing both the OP and ED..She's a wonderful singer. I was disappointed to hear that she's not voicing a main heroine in this series since her performance as "Yui Yuigahama" in Oreigaru was simply amazing. Especially her "Dramatic takes". For example:

This is why she's one of my favourite Japanese VA's.

Anyways, I hope this series comes close to Oregairu in terms of its "Romance" aspect.

Really liked the art style. It will probably get passed on as a generic moe show, but I see the potential that it has.
