Now that is a unique and fascinating concept. And I love the artstyle on that cover. I'll be eagerly looking forward to this one.

I suspect that it will be a very short series though... perhaps only a half a dozen episodes like Shinigami no Ballad. There's not much you can do with a single volume of original material after all.

I get Shinigami no Ballad vibes from this and that's a very good thing. I'll be keeping a look out for this one for sure.

Like already mentioned here, i also get Shinigami no Ballad vibes out of this ... and considering i enjoyed that one greatly, i am having good expectations of this title. A refreshing concept to be sure, and i am always up for some melancholy once in a while

This looks cute and kinda reminds me of Shinigami no Ballad but I doubt I'll watch it. Supernatural slice-of-life? No thank you...

Hmm, I think the site has been removed, because it leads me to an ads clone website...

Anyways, it's interesting. If it's anything like Shinigami no Ballad, then I'm sure I'll be looking forward to it.

EDIT: Ah! Here's the website.

More info:

Quote:
監督: 佐藤竜雄 「機動戦艦ナデシコ」「宇宙のステルヴィア」
シリーズ構成: 大河内一楼 「コードギアス 反逆のルルーシュ」「交響詩篇エウレカセブン」「ブレイブストーリー」
キャラクター原案: 黒星紅白 「キノの旅 -the Beautiful World-」「アリソン」
アニメーション制作: J.C.STAFF 「のだめカンタービレ」「灼眼のシャナ」「ハチミツとクローバー」「ゼロの使い魔」
オープニングテーマ: ALI PROJECT
Yay! Ali Project is in charge of the OP! Plus it's Series Composer Okouchi Ichirou from Code Geass and Eureka Seven!

I'm so in now

The director is Sato Tatsuo from Stellvia and Kidou Senkan Nadesico, but I haven't watched any of those series so I'll hold my judgment.

If you browse over to Shigofumi's official site, you'll notice a link to its promotional video.

Looks nice, but if it's going to be another Shinigami no Ballad or some similar iyashikei/slice of life anime, then I'm really not that interested.

To say that I'm looking forward to this is a vast understatement. I want to watch this SO badly! i can't wait! Just the character design itself is enough to get me excited, and it' the same designer who did kino, too <3 :wub:

Mos tof my favorite anime are ones base on light novels, and I'm just a huge light noel fan in general, so this is sure to be an absolute treat. GAh, she's just so awesomely cute! I can't wait for the figures to start coming out!!!

Supposedly it will be 12 episodes. The website even has 12 spots now under the episode section.

Seems like they will draw on events from volumes 1 & 2.
