Judging by the cover, the art isn't really impressive, but it catches my attention, even if I'm no longer a kid (which is a very sad thing) I'm looking forward to watch it ^__^

Fumiko no Kokuhaku is not in the DB because it has not been sold commercially, nor has it won an award. See here.


Oh it makes sense now, ty for the link :)

Wow, nice cast (Chihiro, Shimada, Ohara, Kobayashi).

Can't say I'm into vamps, but the little guy on the cover looks cute...we'll see what happens.

I really do think I read this manga when I was children.

and I will probably just ignore this anime. I'm sure that it will become something like hello kitty.

Hmm although SUNRISE and Otomo's cooperation very complicated on Steamboy and he even left the staff of FREEDOM halfway through the project, I'm very surprised he's providing his work for SUNRISE to make a scenario out of it. Well, it should be quite good nonetheless.

Just wondering why isn't it added to the database? (Also wondering the same for フミコの告白)

Oh, wasn't this one of the concepts off of Genius Party? I just remember the onion head thing.
