I hope this anime is not gonna try to be the new Yoi because it will fail.Hard.

Maybe it will try to be the new King of Prism? Who knows.

Looks interesting to say the least but then again debating whenever it is worth the watch. I got super exited when I found YOI and I'm impatiently waiting for the movie to come out. This just seems copied...Unless the creators of this one come up with a different, and interesting storyline then I am willing to watch it through.

At first I thought it was some skateboarding anime, wich sounded great, but it ended up being some queer on ice lookalike. Yes, I should read things slower.

Looking at the director and character designer, I feel like this might be quite great or at least an enjoyable watch. But, the cover design and the story description make this anime look like one of those "hey, we have cute guys and . . . more cute guys!"
Well, I love cute guys, but if I am watching an anime, I also want to like the characters and the story.

not enough to go off of yet, could be good, could be bad. The picture is really good, and Goro taniguchi can make a good show, kinda varies

Oh yes we were born to ship VictYuri *gay bass drop*

Jokes aside, It´s JC, so big no no for me. I don´t even know if the director of Geass involved is a good or bad thing.
