WHY YES ILL BE WATCHING THIS!!

Hopefully Ill get around to reading the manga first XD But man Suzuka Oda's art for the 2nd manga is hot!! Of course I'm biased to her since I love her KHR doujins <3

Considering how Sensei and Sage see the comparisons to this and Ghost Hunt if I wasn't watching this I'd be kicked out of class XD

I'm all over this (and Shiki too).

According to the official website it will run for 13 episodes. Enough to adapt a book or two?

Oda Suzuka's art is hot indeed, but I find Suzuki Yasushi's novel cover illustrations the best. They're so pretty and stylish.

The first two-volume manga adaptation covered 3 story arcs. Those arcs were likely from 3 books, I guess. I could easily see 13 episodes covering those 3 stories. (3 eps, 3 eps, & 4 eps.) (4 eps, 4 eps, & 5 eps) For now, that's my guess as to what's going to be covered.

Oda's art for Yakumo is hot! But the first manga artstyle wasn't bad either. I like them both but I wonder which artstyle the anime will use? If they're not using the original novel then I'm guessing it will probably be Oda's character designs.

Sensei will definitely kick you out of her class if you don't watch. I have my own portable T.V. to watch in detention.

Aww, is that all? I was hoping for at least 26 episodes. ;____;

Quote:
This image of Yakumo from the original novels is nice too...more realistic and a bit darker than the manga versions.

Hopefully we'll get a bit more of the romance where GH lacked.

...and another scary doll episode??? Anyone planning on watching this in the dark?

Thanks for creating this thread, LKK.

My first guess would be that they're going with the novel illustration style since they used a novel cover for their preliminary web site image.

Shouldn't you know by now not to brag about your detention contraband?

Well, it's been known to happen that a second cour is announced during the first cour's run. So here's hoping that'll be the case this time.

I think that different art reflects the difference in intended audiences between the novels and the manga. Seinen versus shoujo.

Unfortunately with only 13 episodes scheduled, I'm not holding my breath for this. I don't think there will be enough time in the leads' relationship for any romance to develop.

Those three stories were actually in the first book. Here's my guess if they choose to do two books.

Novel 1: 2-2-3 eps
Novel 2: 6 eps

I nabbed some images from the author's official website. The novels have covers by two different illustrators. Akatsuki Katoh for the Bungeisha edition and Suzuki Yasushi for the Kadokawa Shoten edition.

Spoiler for Akatsuki Katoh:


Spoiler for Suzuki Yasushi:

Id fall over dead if they used Oda's art but since only 1 vol of her vers is out I bet they either use the novel or the completed manga. btw have you seen her Mukuro???

I didn't know that about the books. It's been hard for me to find out information about the novels since I have to rely on Google (etc.) translations which drive me crazy. So thanks for the info.

Thanks also for the pics and the LJ information!

Which cover gave you the idea that this series is BL? If you think that other character is a guy, you're wrong; it's a girl. This is a seinen series, and it's similar in concept to Ghost Hunt, if you've seen that.

Short answer to your question: No, it's not BL.

On another note, it seems that Yakumo will draw in the audience the way Naru did for Ghost Hunt.

Wow, this sounds awesome. I really enjoyed Ghost Hunt. By the way, the novel covers remind me so much of Naru from GH.

If you think those covers remind you of Naru, check this other one by Ritsu Miyako in the first manga adaptation:

I'm really hoping this is an actual adaptation and not some sort of continued story like the live-action series was. I really want to see the first case (from the manga, anyway) animated.

Also, personally, I preferred the first manga's art to the more recent one. Haruka was more attractive.

That pic is the reason I got into STY in the first place. At first I thought it was a doujin of Naru and Mai - aaand...so I dug further and found Yakumo.

I think the anime will be an adaptation and not a continuation - it would make little sense if it was a continuation.

I have to agree with you on Haruka. Miyako's character design for Haruka is more mature and prettier than Oda's Haruka, who looks more like a high school senior than a University student. But I've only seen the first chapter, so maybe Oda's Haruka will grow on me. But if the anime went with Miyako's character design...I'd get too much of a GH vibe and that's not good either.
