I read this manga because Ilya Kushinov (the char desing of Bday Wonderland and Ghost in the Shell [Netflix]) mentioned one time, it's really cool to see an anime adapt.

Two newbie seiyuus and two veterans. Seems like a very interesting series. Also, down to earth. The MCs all have normal hair colours lol. We don't get that much wholesome SOL anymore.

Ugh whaaaaaat absolutely failed to note it. The authors are not trying too hard to look special? Definitely worth viewing.
It's rare to see anime characters that actually look like people nowadays :) Usually, in this case, it's going for a more realistic or mature approach.

Sounds interesting. At least there's hopefully no chance of anime original end with the manga being finished
