That could potentially kick a lot of ass. Horse racing and gambling during the time of prohibition, in anime form

Not the first time a pachinko character gets an anime, probably not the last either, and of course I'll watch it for boobs Inoue Marina~

Really? How did you find this out? Though, I haven't even checked the character page yet.

Anyway, why? Is the Japanese anime industry so deprived of any stories or good writers that they feel they have to write an anime about a pachinko character who was only invented to lure in lonely otaku and steal their money?

And there's no real strategy to pachinko, so they can't make it some sort of sports tournament thing like Saki. The only thing I can think of is a wussy fanservice anime with no real story or likeable characters like Kampfer or the R+V anime.

No, sorry, not watching.
