Kinda wanna comment that the production is kinda 'budget' as seen on the main cast. But it's a good start for new comers.

I haven't read all the chapters. But it is a very moving drama. I'm highly looking forward to it!

The only thing that could top this is if Aoi Hana had a continuation TV series (but alas, DVD sales).

Yay! Can't wait.

At the same time, I need to start reading the manga again . . .

Do want. The manga was interesting and entertaining.

A anime adaption? Oh yes.

I remember looking at this Manga.
I'll probably give the Anime a look into.

...I'm so happy right now... you seriously have no idea. ^__^

I never thought that this would get an anime. Not because I think it isn't good enough, (look at my username for chrissakes) but because it just didn't seem like something that a company would look at and decide "That one right there let's make an anime on that one!". They better get it right though or I will be ROYALLY pissed.

Anyone know when it's supposed to come out?

Kay, i've read it now, and jesus christ it's one of the cutest tings i've ever read. And fascinating too. I don't really know how it's going to work as an anime, but i'm sure whoever does it will do a great job.

Just discovered this manga like a week ago! XD And it's so great! Hope they do a good a job as they did with Aoi Hana, only with a more satisfying ending... XD

I cant wait for it to come out!!!!! >w<
I wonder how long it will be?

This is AWESOME news!!! I had been hoping for this ever since I started reading the manga, but seriously didn't think this would ever happen… I was already surprised enough when the Aoi Hana anime was announced, and always thought the issues addressed in Hourou Musuko were too sensitive for it to get a TV adaptation.
Here's hoping it will be adapted with the same flair and sensibility that graced the Aoi Hana anime… I can't express just how excited I am about this. Best news I've read all month! :)

I too have been hoping since I've read the manga for a anime adaption, I'm so excited!!!

Very good news, it's clearly my favourite of Shimura's work. And while I'm slightly doubtful on how well an adaption would work, Aoi Hana did, and that had a lot less charm than Houro Musuko.
