After seeing that scan, is it just me or does it appear that did PA Works suddenly decided to copy A-1/Kyoani in terms of "Chipmunk" designs. Because I'm SEVERELY disappointed (actually near raging) because I really HATE that kind of character design. I've always loved PA character designs, in particular True Tears and Hanasaku Iroha... but this? This just screams K-on clone #752 (in terms of designs).

I was curious myself, but the only new information is that all four heroines will be voiced by the same seiyuu.

Lovely image from Tari Tari. I'm curious who drew it as it doesn't look like Sekiguchi's style.

Really?
I love the design on that scan..

Btw yeap, people that follow anime over years should know magazine spread can change everytime depend on who that drawing the spread. No big deal if the design looked different.

To go from this and this to that... makes me very sad as they just looks like every other damn generic moe design I've seen from the likes of particularly A-1 Pictures. Mind me though as I'm quite picky when it comes to visuals in a "slice of life" medium as good visuals is one of the important that sets it apart from the rest as it's a very common genre .

I made no comment on the actual premise, characters, atmosphere, music and other factors since we either don't know, or we (at least I) are insured that P.A. Works produces works that are one or two cuts above the norm... and of anime original scripts no less (this is the studio's third SoL anime original after TT and HSI).

As for the story, it seems one of the three main heroines is praticising kyudo.

Outline and character profiles:

This is an adolescent drama set on the island of Enoshima in the Kanagawa Prefecture. Wakana Sakai entered high school to focus on their music department, but her interest subsided after a certain event and now she's just a normal student. After becoming a 3rd year student and forming the Chorus Club with Miyamoto Konatsu and Okita Sawa, will music once again fill her heart?

Wakana Sakai: The only daughter of a souvenir shop owner. After her mother passed away, she lost all interest in music.

Miyamoto Konatsu: Wakana's classmate and a member of the vocals department. After her mistake in last year's performance, she's moved to take over the chorus.

Okita Sawa: Wakana's classmate and the daughter of a temple priest near the school. Her dream is to one day be a horse rider.

Adoscelent coming of age drama huh? Sounds very much like Hanasaku Iroha, which is a good thing for me. Just this time, we don't have Mari Okada to derail the structure with stupid perv or comedy antics ^_^''.

Hopefully the character designs aren't gonna be like one on the scans because seriously... they are a DOWNGRADE to what I'm use to for PA Works. Another was already the worst looking show by them, so I expect quality for this one.

As mentioned already, the promotional image shown is very likely to have been drawn by a different animator (the scan does not reveal credits). The character designer/chief animation director is the same as CANAAN and Hanasaku Iroha, Kanami Sekiguchi. It's quite possible that she was busy working on the series/Home Sweet Home and not this promotional image. One magazine image does not a series make.

What? Shouldn't it be "the daughter of a temple's priest" or something like that?

Correct. The original Japanese literally goes "A certain temple near the school's daughter." Similarly Wakana is "the daughter of a souvenir shop." Usually I catch myself on these changes, but I missed this one. Thank you for pointing it out.

So it not only has a musical focus, but the music is central to the plot?

Sold. Waiting till Summer can't possibly be any longer.

Reading the profiles, I now realize that the first released concept art has reveled quite a lot about the main cast than I had originally thought

It's pretty neat to see go back and find out these things, shows that the artist had given it some thought into his work

It's strange though that they would leave Wakana's reasons for stopping being interested in music in the synopsis only to reveal it anyways in her character profile lol. In any case, Konatsu's story sounds like it has some very high potential to be very satisfying, while I'm not sure about how Okita's is going to tie into the general plot, but I guess I'll just to have to find out once it airs

Do they also confirm who is voicing who?

Often in Japanese, you'll see "something" or "a certain thing." While in English, we clarify things like that in summaries, but Japanese assumes you know what's happening. Just a quirk of the language.

That was confirmed on the website when it first launched. Ayahi Takagaki voices Wakana, Asami Seto voices Miyamoto, and Saori Hayami voices Okita.

This quote makes me think as another Tsuritama, except with girls as the main characters and has music focus.

Ah right. I thought that the info about her mother's death was meant to be under tighter wraps going by my first impression from the summery, but if we are supposed to already know that about her, I suppose it would make sense for them to not be specific.

Alright, just checking. Glad to know that Ayahi Takagaki and Asami Seto will be voicing the two with the more musical focus, though when all your seiyuu are musically experienced, it wasn't much of a worry to start with I suppose.

Ah ha .... finally some details, and I must admit that for me the story looks like my sort of thing.

I'll definitely be checking it out!
