Nakamura Hikaru draw an endcard for episode 8 for Natsu no Arashi, the chance of this being another Shaft show is pretty high. Recent Shaft's endcard cases:
  • Endō Minari - Hidamari Sketch x365 #10 → Maria Holic
  • Kobayashi Jin - Hidamari Sketch x365 #11 → Natsu no Arashi!
  • Tamaki Nozomu - Maria Holic #11 → Dance in the Vampire Bund

Moonphase seems to confirm it's a Shinbo show from Shaft. Lol.

Mizuno 2009-08-09 07:59

I knew it! SHAFT is really picking up all the strange stuff to animate. :heh:

But this series seems pretty meh, this is going to require a lot of work to pique people's interest.

edit: this one's not just strange, it's bizarre.

Midonin 2009-08-09 11:05

The strange and the quirky is right up Shaft's alley, and also up mine. It's like an alley situated between one of those neon-lit novelty stores and a bookstore. What was I talking about again?

Oh, right. I will definitely watch this because I've never met a Shaft show I haven't liked.

M.Marangio 2009-09-04 11:45

It's a Shinbo/Shaft show after all, as the blog of the mangaka confirmed:

The covers are really weird at least some of them were. So the element of comedy seems strong in this one . Also the art is pretty nice and concept seems interesting . I follow all almost all gag anime so sure wont miss this one .

Also kinda getting NieA under 7 vibes on this one , so really looking forward to this anime : O

Zetsubo Sensei's weirdness is wearing off, it's time for Shaft to find something weird. I'll check this out for the weirdness...?

The mangaka seems to be in disbelief that a famous Director is picking this up?

Oooh spring lineup, I actually didn't know this is getting animated. The manga was absolutely hilarious and wonderful, especially that "Priest".

Those manga covers are... Can't think of a proper word to describe them, but I really like them.

It looks like this series could be good for a lot of laughs. So, I'll look out for this.

Midonin 2009-12-04 22:17

The last time a series had covers that asynchronously bizarre was Sunred. Which is now one of my favorite series. (And also from Gangan, come to think of it.) So I place my faith in the weirdness.

Midonin 2009-12-05 20:01

Pay close attention to this website link.

http://www.starchild.co.jp/special/arakawa_ub/

There's nothing there yet, but it was listed on the flyer above, so it should have something soon. Which means Arakawa will be another collaboration of the Triple-S. Shaft, Shinbo and Starchild.

Westlo 2009-12-07 02:10

Read the first chapter, all it did was set up the premise so can't really say much, will check out an episode or two when this airs eventually.

sirn 2009-12-09 10:26

Official site launched with ughh… announcement PV?

Midonin 2009-12-09 10:38

A live action announcement PV with a man in a kappa suit. Now that's the Shaft I know.

SHAFT never fails to amuse me with their creativity creating something different from usual....that was brilliant:p
Any news of the seiyuu cast yet?

Still no news.

After watching a couple of shaftbund, I'm wondering how much more quirky can they make this (the original material is already pretty beyond common sense).

sirn 2010-02-04 12:45

Casts

Ichinomiya Kou (Riku): Kamiya Hiroshi
Nino: Sakamoto Maaya
Hoshi: Sugita Tomokazu
Sonchou (Kappa): Fujiwara Keiji

Midonin 2010-02-04 12:47

That makes three Shaft leads voiced by Kamiya. Impressive.
