Reminder, lesbobear manga plot barely had any to do with the anime plot...maybe that will be the case?

Doesn't change the fact it was a GL manga nonetheless.

Ikuhara did some BL in Utena, with the black rose arc, or all the fan-service of the third arc.
So even if we're more used to some GL content, this anime being BL would not be surprising.

BTW, Utena's manga, even if there is common elements, is also quite different from the series. I haven't read the Mawaru spin-off, but I'm under the impression that each time the manga and the anime are made to be different, yet sharing a common ground. The thematic doesn't change, but the actual story and/or its evolution is different.

If spinoff is BL I wonder if original is the same. Please be BL.

From my understanding, the narrator in the 2nd teaser says:

"We are all connected. But we dislike that. But we also desire that. Who are the ones with the strongest desire/lust?"

(Take with a grain of salt as my Japanese isn't quite good yet...)

Can somebody sub those trailers?

Mawaru Penguindrum is one of my most beloved anime of all time.. I am planning to watch Utena real soon. I am sooo excited, I love Ikuhara so much!!

Eh, Lesbobear was pretty interesting and novel though. I'd rather see stuff in that kind of vein than rehashing Gay Anime Penguindrum or Gay Anime Utena. Why rehash two masterpieces when you can explore an interesting direction?

Stole the words of my mouth.

Lesbobear was a cringefest.

@Shadow-Chan I heard Suwabe-san, too, but wasn't sure (not officially announced yet, so I cannot officially put it on the news post).

MAPPA then I hear Suwabe ♥
