Not just the character design, if you check out the covers, you will see a more than striking resemblance of postures. But I don't really mind, that is their business. She is just doing what the mangaka of vk ought to in the first place. (draw more bl in stead of whiny shojos!)

Is the manga actually classified as BL, or are the hints SO strong that people started calling it BL ? But didn't Sakurai said he won't do any more BL roles?

Not that I mind either option...

^^ Uragiri runs in Asuka Monthly which is not considered a BL magazine. Other Asuka series turned anime include Neo Angelique Abyss, Trinity Blood, Rental Magica, Romeo x Juliet, Saiunkoku Monogatari, Shounen Onmyouji, X, D.N.Angel, and Kyo Kara Maoh. Uragiri runs more towards the BL-ish side of the magazine's offerings. But it's not truly BL. More like it's been adopted by BL fans in the way that X, D.N.Angel, and Kyo Kara Maoh have been adopted by them (us).

Can't really say without spoiling, but there is definitely something in the air....because of certain circumstances. Nothing too physical though. So in a way, it's kinda a semi shounen ai.

There is a slight, noticeable hint but nothing major. I'm not a BL fan but I'm willing to watch this (bishies are too hot to ignore) and the BL hints aren't intolerable.

And the casts are something (recognized a few - because of someone rubbing off on me)...I knew Bunbun would love it. XD

It's hard to discuss this without going into spoilers, but I wouldn't undersell the BL aspects of this, they are clearly there.

That being said, this isn't like your typical shonen ai,;I can imaging it would have a similar crossover appeal as Vampire Knight; although not catering to straight males as much.

I really hope they don't make this crappily put together like past bl series or try to tone down the m/m romance. This is JC Staff though so hopefully they will do neither.

I'm really looking forward to this very much. The only problem is that there isn't a lot of translations out there for the manga (which sucks ><).

It's the music. That Gothic organ music has been most recently associated with VK. I wonder if the series' BGM will have the same musical feel?

Speaking of the music, did the trailer's sound drop out halfway through for anyone else?

Yeah, the music stops halfway. Here's a different version:

Why am I so glad J.C Staff took this project instead of Studio DEEN?

Even if the PV only shows the best animated scenes, the animation is better then I expected for a female orientated series. Looks like there's plenty of BL undertones, not that it matters to me. I'm never impressed with these fantasy shoujo anime, I hope this series can proove to me that they're worth while.

The seiyuu cast list is still great <3 The only thing missing is OnoD.

Sorry for the double post but thought I'd share some animated gifs I made using the PV. Free to take.

1. 2. 3. 4.
5. 6. 7. 8.
9. 10. 11. 12.
13. 14. 15. 16. 17.

All icons are AS safe.
Numbers: 2, 5, 7, 11, 13, 16 are over 50 kb but under 100 kb; all other icons are under 50 kb.

I'm using #15 and #13.

Been a while since I made gifs...hehe.

(oops, forgot to make a border for some. Oh well, too lazy to do that now. )

Crunchyroll will be simulcasting Uragiri. [Source] Premium members will have access to the simulcast the day of airing. Everyone else, one week later. Also, I heard elsewhere that the streams will only be available for 30 days from uploading, but I can't confirm this yet.

All Kadokawa shows in CR seems to always expire 30 days after the final episode is released. It was so with Omamori Himari, it seems that way with this show as well.

I've seen a Chinese-subbed preview version of ep1 and it seems promising. A bit slow for me, but suitably intense and psychological. Vibes of older anime and of Kara no Kyoukai, for me. Good voices all round, both men and women. But the intense relationships (so far entirely non-sexual) are between men.

Hrmmm.

First episode was really...dramatic, I guess? -w-;;

But seriously, the feathers and roses weren't really that necessary were they? |D;;

Think I'll just stick to the manga...
