The seiyuu list just kicks ass. DX

However, I don't get why people get hung up on the fact that they resemble zodiac signs. There had been worse: think Akikan.

These seiyuu orgies are starting to piss me off. I could understand the need to animate this if the plot was any good, but we all know it is going to be another Miracle wreck Train.

Baah, I'll have to watch it. Pieces CD was awesome. Damn Sugita.

That I what I was thinking, Or some like APH since Miracle Train is 20s min long.
ah I getting a head ache with all the thinking. I don't if I want to look forward to this or not. I really don't what a other anime that talking about the sky, history, or something to learn about, well its ok for little while after that it give me a head ache.

OHHH Sweet, I saw the website not to long go. Looking forward to it, its good to see more anime for girls to like. Unlike other anime with moe and fanservice.
Oh some much good animes coming out in 2010 :o

Okay, you have my interest if only because of the seiyuu cast.

Personally I find nothing objectionable in using the zodiac or any other theme as a basis for the characters. In the end even in anime without themes the characters tend to fall neatly into the same categories (tsundere, student council president, guy with glasses, whatever...) so why not try to add some flair? Props to their marketing strategy for choosing a theme that allows them to get money for a full 12 months.

Now I just need to find some reviews of the games/CDs since I've never heard of it before. And read us what's the personality of Aries, since despite reading my horoscope at every lunch break to laugh about it with my classmates I never bothered with astrology.

Don't take it too seriously, now. HONEY BEE knows girls giggle over astrology, sure, but it's mostly a marketing strategy. They have 12 male leads, plus a special one making it 13 male leads, all of which just have a different birthdate. What HONEY BEE did is space out this franchise over the course of the year: a drama cd out in Janurary, another in Feburary, another in March, another in April, so on and so forth. On top of this, they released the games. Four in total-- one released for each season, with a different theme. (Childhood friends, Teacher/Student Relationships, Student Counci, another I'm blanking onl)

And no, before you say it, you can't just buy one of the Drama CDs/games... if you want the special thirteenth character, you need to get them all, get a coupon (I think) and use that coupon to get the special 13th guy's CD.

If that doesn't get you off it: the guys themselves say they're just humans. They describe their sign to "you", in the Drama CD, and "you" comment it sounds just like them. The reason they talk about it is because the school focuses on astronomy, and by extension, astrology. (Due to constellations)

This isn't like Hetalia where they ARE the countries. HONEY BEE just found a brilliant way to suck money out of girls' pockets using something they (sterotypically) like.

....tl;dr aside: WHERE ALL MAH CANCERS AT?
I shouldn't feel as lucky as I do over Ono Daisuke providing the voice for Tohzuki... XD

I'm watching this because the Aries CD was freaking hilarious and I have an immeasurable love for Nakamura Yuichi that I'd watch anything that has his voice in it.

Winter game where!?

Seconded. :D Also, I'm thinking they should use days of the week next as an idea...or months. Different brands of fertilizer. Or something.
