So far it looks adorable and with a staff like that, it's sure to make an impression.
It's a definite must-watch for me! (At the official site, the girl at the right with the baseball bat looks a lot like Matsuri from Kamichu!)

Cool news. Kamichu was light heartedly enjoyable, hoping for something similar.

anyone knows the exact date when this will be shown? and if it's subbed or dubbed (personally i can not believe they would dub something at a premier).

i hear that summer wars will be also shown at the festival.


Edit: i skipped the first line...

I imagine this will be worth a watch. Kamichu was quite an enjoyable anime. I just hope the non-human character designs are as awesome as they were in Kamichu.

Also, what's with the studio switch? Kamichu was by Brains Base, but I don't imagine the production studio making too much of a difference if almost all of the staff are the same.

This look like it has some potential. I haven't watched Kamichu yet but it's on my to-do-list. The staff looks really good though.
