WTF what r u doin' with hanekawa's boobs in Kizu 3 ??
its oversized dude ...

Zaregoto...

A friend and I were discussing that Shaft would inevitably pick up the series, but I still think they should've went with Take's original character designs. Possibly could've hired some one like Tsuyoshi Kawada to mimic his style; like his work on Katanagatari.

It would've been a treat seeing that mesh with Shinbou/Shaft's style.

At least it's an OVA adaptation, hoping for a 40-50 minute duration per episode.

Really like the character designs that he has done.

Great design on TWGOK and Grisaia no kajitsu. Also Monogatari. Well done and didn't expect he made Pero Pero teacher too which is a hentai rated anyway
