Blar! A long-haired, proactive girl named Osana Najimi, who's actually childhood friends with a guy? Needless to say, my moe meter on this series is on OVER overload, lol!

And hey, it highly reminds me of Comic Party, which is a series I adore to death (Revolution especially is teh win IMO). That said though, the first eps hasn't impressed me as much as other shows this season. And while it's too early to tell, I really don't see how this show would arise from all others this season.

Well, i was right, they droped the "waking up" chapter altogether.
And looking at the screens - seems like second episode will be rather plain as well...

How old are the characters? Justice looks maybe 20+ but the girls look like they're around 14 or younger.

I wish it becomes 24 minutes soon. The reason it's 12 minutes is because of the little bonus afterwards (something about the seiyuu drawing doujinshi), right?

Yep yep. One half Doujin Work, one half working on a doujin.

I can't believe there were no epic facial expression like the "Don't get cocky punk!" scene. Those expressions from the manga is one of the reason that made it amusing for me.

I found the first episode rather boring and that goes with the bgm. Hopefully that will change.

Well, I haven't read anything from the manga, but I hear alot of people that the manga was better.

Although the 1st ep. lasted for only 14 mins, it was hilarious. I enjoyed every bit of it.
(I follow the subs so I haven't seen ep.2)

Ep 1

Goddamn, that was awesome. I haven't read a great deal of Hiroyuki's stuff, but what I have read generally makes me seriously lol, and I have to say the same about this. Sure, it wasn't exceptional, but it did everything right, as far as comedy is concerned, and most of the jokes hit the right mark. The train sequence in particular was genius!

I think I'm going to enjoy this series...

Edit: And hooray for an ED sequence with dancing in it. That kind of reminds me of High School Girls, which I'd almost argue doesn't have a dissimilar style of humour to this (even though they dealt with totally different topics)

Episode 1 - As a whole, it's kind of flat but the setting in comiket got me interested. I never get tired of it. Think of genshiken, lucky star and NHK, all has comiket scene and are among my favourites.

As for ED, it's all backs, not comparable to joshikousei ED, and the highly rated lucky star OP and haruhi ED. Nevertheless, as long as it features comiket regularly, im up for next episodes.

I wouldn't want it to air in full half hour as I feel it will be dragging on with its flatness. 12 mins is just right.

I watched ep1 and it was very to my liking. It certainly had some funny parts like "yuri ja nai!" -.-
I heard that although the anime is 12 mins or so, there is some live action with the same length. Is it any good and what's the live action about (for those who're better in japanese)?

Hmmm well the first episode was cute enough only problem was I have and will always dislike half length episodes. *grumble*

Ah well ill try not to let it interfere too much with my enjoyment of this one. Id say tsuyuri in and of herself is enough to keep me watching.

Having a character named Osana Najimi means this is worth watching no matter what! Either that, or it's just a really cheap pun. Oh well, I liked it.

Full impressions here.

People can also see My Summary And Thoughts as well.

Just in case there was any doubt, this show is a definite keeper for me. I love the concept behind this series enough, but the comedy is good too for something so short.

I really enjoyed the first episode.

The comedy just pushes all the right buttons for me and we didn't meet any annoying characters or characters with annoying voices so far (the tiny living bloomer...thing is weird, though).

The highlights of the episode were of course the train scene, Najimi trying to sell the book and the scene where the announcer tells Najimi to get off the table as it's dangerous to stand on it. Oh, and the Panty Revolution!

Also, it really seems like Hiroyuki has a thing for lolis and bloomers.

I haven't read the manga, but I'd guess 18-19 (since Najimi talks about taking drawing classes "back at school", and they're old enough to shop in the H section at Toronoana but not - judging by ep 2 - old enough to legally drink).

The humour in this show appeals to me, even if it is a bit overdone. I agree with those who've picked up a Joshikousei vibe, particularly in the very catchy ED - incidentally, the singer Mizuhashi Mai is only 15 and also sang the Hitohira ED.
