Ok I did finally see it (just couldnt' see it from my phone) and you know... considering I am very familiar with sappy melodramatic K-dramas this doesn't surprise me at all. East Asia loves their sappy melodrama TV shows much like Japanese otakus love their nakige Key animes.
Oh snap, I just insulted two groups of people!
Back to being serious, I can see this being possibly popular amongst the general crowd, but ffs Japan REALLY needs to actually get proper actors being their live-action actors are always f***ing terrible to the point its always intentionally funny. It's impossible to take their TV seriously because of it.
It's going to be an adaptation of the upcoming sequel on PS3/PS4/PSV, which Leaf announced in 2011 then didn't talk about for like four years. If the translation of one scan I saw is correct, they claim it's the second of three acts that they originally had planned. Most of the characters seem to be new but Karura, Benawi and Karou have profiles on the game's character page so perhaps others will show up as well - I'd definitely be up for seeing more Eruruu, she's one of the characters who made me the fan I am today.
Was very Bakemonogatari-esque at times.
Pretty much every time I hear someone say something is like Bakemonogatari I don't get the comparison.
I did get around to seeing Aki no Kanade and the production itself impressed me but it didn't really get me interested in the characters the way PA Works does, something that perhaps results from the half hour format.
And I am being entirely serious about Asatte no Houkou being that good.
