From Matthew's Anime Blog:

Quote:

Daisuke is a 23 year old new schoolteacher. He ends up being put in charge of a 3rd grade elementary school class since the previous teacher quit, and in that class there's a girl who's quite a troublemaker -- Rin Kokonoe. You could call her a masegaki (used to describe a kid that acts more like an adult in some ways), and she's also part tsundere (though more dere than tsun). She's somewhat similar to Miu from Ichigo Mashimaro, I guess. Besides Rin, Daisuke's got other problems to take care of -- one of the students in his class, Mimi (one of Rin's friends), hasn't been attending school recently.
Genre: Seinen, Comedy

And here it is... possible one of the most loli series to be animated... :heh:

Yeah, I'll be anticipating this show, since Nanoha lost the "loli" approach. :heh:

hi no ken Jebus 2007-02-09 09:49

oh wow:heh: didn't expect this to get animated so soon. It should be interesting to see which studio and voice actors they get for this.

When I first saw this thread, I thought, You're kidding me!
First volume of th english translated manga, titlet "Nymphet" will be out in April, by Seven Seas Entertainment.

Uh, yeah, looking forward for this series.

It's quite interesting they're starting an anime out of it :p
I just hope they're not just going to butcher the whole content, else I don't see the point of making an anime out of it.

Maybe an useless info, but those figures were also on a TECH GIAN DVD of 2007 if I remember correctly :o

From the anime announcement thread (in reference's to Seven Seas' releasing the manga in the U.S.)...

Somebody's gonna die. Some stupid editor's gonna die. :frustrated:

No duh, "Kodomo no Jikan" isn't the best name for US release, but "Nymphet"?!

Well, it is pretty darn descriptive and thematically appropriate for the story. :heh: Not that I'm a big fan of renaming titles for U.S. release, and some I find completely annoying, but this one I don't dislike, personally. I guess YMMV. :heh:

The title reminds me of a old hentai manga about 3 boys who tied up thier babysiter for some S&M bondage fun :p:D:heh:

Now this is a series to look forward to. I've had enough of impostors' trying to imitate like lolis as it is in Manabi Straight.

The above is so misleading and wrong in so many ways! You are not loli. :eyebrow:

Indeed, there are quite a few shows that are borderline loli, but some peoples seem to say they're loli for some weird reasons (when did loli grow boobs and were gone to high school anyway? xD).
BTW funny pic^^

But I'm seriously wondering what they'll do it with this anime adaptation, especially given how 'offensive' the manga's content is :o

My almost complete collection of the Collect 800 KNJ Trading Fig from MaxFactory.

Well, I had a complete set but the angle of Ransel Rin in Original Colour came loose. So the leg isn't enough to support the fig on the stand. But I have my way to seek out another of her.

What I need now is the 1/6 Rin + the Kindergaten Rin from the LE of Volume 3 of the Manga to get a complete collection.

Speaking of which, the manga is getting darker as Rin's fixation on Daisuke grows. Rin did try to push Houin (Big Busted Female Teacher) down the stairs once, who she see's as a oppenent for Daisuke's attention. Kinda reminds me of the movie, The Crush which I watched when I was younger.

Suffice it to say that, based on the short "plot description", I think the title is more applicable to this story than the other (Rin is the very definition of a "nymphet")... but if that's the reason, I guess I can see why people find it to be a poor choice in name. :heh:

There's also a limited edition of volume 3, it costs 1890 yen (while the regular edition costs 630 yen)

The limited edition comes with this loli figure.

I first mentioned that in my post above. Damn Amazon JP still has not stock in on that. I hope I do not have to resort to auction for that fig.

BTW, 2ch rumoured that Rie Kugimiya (Al from FMA, Shana) will be cast as Rin.

If thats true, then i can tell i'm not the only one that could see Her being the perfect choice for the role.

Yeah, I agree about that, she was pretty good for Shana's character (maybe she's perfect for loli characters :heh: )

She can play an awesome tsundere character - thats already been shown, so she's probably going for different types of characters. :3

I updated the first post of this thread with the regular edition and limited edition of volume 3 of the seinen manga.

And check this out, from ANS:
