Well god bless them! And Rin will be voiced by Acc's seyuu. <3 Misaka, Kamiya Horishi, Kitamura Eri - I didn't even imagine better cast than this. ;o And the art is awesome! Oh, no I feel like my heart is going to burst.

SO EXITED OF THIS! :DD

Great seiyuu cast ^^ I hope they won't do filler ending... It would be a waste to leave this manga without anime of it's worth. Even better would be to let the manga continue more and then start the anime, but oh well, nothing we can do about it, unfortunately.

They... they... they...
HELL YES!

SO COMPLETELY AND UTTERLY LOOKING FORWARD TO THIS!

I don't think they can even screw it up until the later episodes even... (maybe I'm speaking too soon)

Hmmm. It sounds alright but an anime adaptation before the 5th volume is out?

That's how much it caught whatever anime company's interest.

They will either make it short with a "To Be Continued" or filler ending my guess... :(

Mod edit: Please do not double post

OMFG YES !! >: DD * happy dance*

I love ANE!! But i'm worried that they wont do well with a show being announced so quickly! There aren't many chapters out. So i'm afraid they will do what they've done with some other seires and just make it completely different than the manga.
