Wonder if this is the 2nd NoitaminA spring anime

edit: or maybe not since Uchuu Kyoudai seems like another candidate,maybe it takes over for chihayafuru in NTV's timeslot?

I have a hard time imagining a josei airing on something other than NoitaminA or "that unnamed tuesday NTV block"

It does look like noitaminA material, but it can't be because Yamamoto Kouji confirmed that Nakamura Kenji's secret project Tsuritama (probably not the final name, he still refers to it as "Nakamura Kenji new work" on Twitter) would be airing this spring with Sakamichi no Apollon.

So yeah, there are quite a few peculiar series announced for this spring but they can't all end up on the 3 "not necessarily targeting otaku" slots (counting noitaminA as 2). This one is a better candidate for the NTV timeslot since Uchuu Kyoudai is unlikely to get it for sponsor reasons (VAP always produces these series, but Uchuu Kyoudai is on Aniplex's side).

Count me in based on the voice cast alone.

I haven't been impressed by much so far this season, but this show seems like a keeper. The humor, structure and setting remind me a lot of Working!! -- of course, having Takanashi, Souma and Satou in the cast doesn't hurt. The balance between plot and gags seems just right. Interestingly, the head writer only has one other credit to his name so we'll have to see how well he's able to hold the series together.

Some people may not take it seriously due to the character design but personally, I like it! Such a refreshing change from typical character designs, and the comedy provides a fun watch.

Well there is a manga so it's not like the writer is going ahead with no source material.

I thought this was going to be one of those 3 minutes per episode series. But it was a full 24 minutes. A pleasant surprise. Very amusing. I'm so glad they're explaining the puns.

This anime is kindo cute. It has a similarly relaxing atmopshere to Natsume Yuujinchou, although the shows have nothing else in common otherwise.

Could be good, but its is hard to say. If I am going to enjoy it, it will be for its calming qualities, but that can easily turn boring.

I've just watched the first episode and it 'seems interesting, funny and relaxing after all those thrilling, horroring or simply complicated animes. Despite other similar anime like Poyopoyo, Recorder and Randoseru, Chi'sweet home, every episode is (luckly) a little longer.
Another good point is the seiyu cast expecially Fukuyama and Sakurai but also Kamiya and Konishi
I'm looking forward the next episodes

Well they both star Kamiyan (he plays the penguin here)


Anyways cute first ep. I am not sure if the novelty will wear off but I did enjoy it.

The lazy Panda was especially funny, I especially like the job he ended up finding.

I just watched the first episode. At first, I was not too sure about it, but I actually really liked it.
It's so cute! and I love Panda! I'll definitely be keeping up with this one!

LOL'd hard on this. Pretty light and funny, so it's a show just right enough to kick off the shoes and relax.

Best thing is, it includes Aya Endo.

I bet the VAs have lots of fun voicing the characters. I couldn't stop laughing when I imagined the look on their faces.
