Is it already established that he changed in order to get into high school? I thought it was either he grew out of it or a point for future plot. Hopefully that wasn't a spoiler..

In any case, my impression is a bit different. I think his high school design is "normal" while the middle school give off an impression of an annoying brat, which is appropriated I'd say.

Since I haven't read the novel, my guess is as good as yours, but it's quite funny his change is quite a leap from badass to ordinary MC appearence wise. Normally, it's suppose to be the other way around: from ordinary MC to badass after something happen to change him.

I would not consider Togashi's middle school self "badass" in any sense of the word.
"Entertaining", maybe.

They all have cute expressions (even Yuuta ), but Kumin's are the cutest of all. It's kinda funny how Yuuta has the most variations in expressions, but I guess it makes sense since he's the main character.

That uncomfortable feel when a female friend is blissfully unaware of "personal space" and invades yours cheerfully without a care for what it does to your hormone levels and resultant physical reactions.

Cheers.

Point to note: that is somewhat official. It is drawn by the original character designer, Nozomi Osaka, on her pixiv page. It's not directly official, but I can't imagine her being allowed to post it without approval from KyoAni.

I'm afraid that I may end up hating the lead male. He looks like just another generic "straight man" who hates having fun and always ruins the punchline of every joke.

I know that I like Kyon from the Suzumiya Haruhi series, but that character was exceptionally well written and his lines were actually funny and clever, unlike the vast majority of this archetype.

Ah, come to think of it, she's not been seen in anime art outside of a couple scenes in the PV. Yes, that is Yumeha Togashi, Yuuta's little sister. She's 5 yrs old.

Interesting, I'll definitively watch this anime now. By the way, thanks for giving the name.

He looks like Taichi from Kokoro Connect.

Not getting a good vibe from him either, but all judgments are off until the anime actually airs.

I finally got around to seeing the PV for this.

I have to say, that is an excellent PV... if this show was going to be the next Shakugan no Shana or Raildex.

Seriously, if I knew nothing else about this anime, that's what this PV would make me think of: A show that mixes supernatural/sci-fi action with slice of high school life like Shana and Raildex do.

I honestly feel a bit sorry for KyoAni's animators. It's so incredibly obvious that they'd like to do a more action-y show, but they're just not given those sorts of projects to work on.


So while the PV is excellent in and of itself, I wonder if it'll cause a "bait and switch" effect for some people who watch the show? Well, probably not for the hardcore KyoAni fan, as they've already read up on this series a lot. So they won't get tricked by this PV, and will simply get excited by it.

But for wider audiences, I can definitely see that PV setting expectations that this anime just isn't designed to meet.

The PV has reinforced my decision to at least give this show a chance though.

I dunno, if anything I do applaud them for trying something different. People ragged SHnY's first, they ragged about Lucky Star's first episode, they ragged about Hyouka's lack of mystery, but eventually people got won over and those series became lauded by the majority.

The only miss they have recently, in terms of sales, is Nichijou, which I guess was too niche.

Cheers.

Mr Hansen, it's not what you think! I was just going to tell her it's not good for such a young girl to appear in such a picture with all those lolicon Otaku on Pixiv.

I think many feels the same way about them ... and frankly speaking, despite how much he loves little girls, the dude here is waiting for a new FMP or if they're planning on animating Kyoukai no Kanata in a near future.
