And two months after it airs we'll all be wondering how they did manage to fuck it up.

Lol @ these two descriptions.

And yes, it could be a nice guilty pleasure, but let's not mention that world around here.

There's something kind of...uncomfortable about them trying to play the one Aoi chick off as sickly enough to need medical recovery yet thrusting her ass in our faces on the previous magazine art.

Then again, this is the same writer that made Wheelchair-chan and her legs were nowhere appearing to be in bad shape. (But oh, maybe it's the future!!!)

Artistic license? Well, I can't really defend that, though thrusting asses in our faces is one of the more harmless things in anime these days. There isn't any say SFSDs thus far. The outfits look fanservicey but not particularly insulting.

The ill girl usually is also an effective generator of pathos, though it requires them to not be an asshole, lest we start applauding due to their suffering. Expect some sad, sad story to pop up, and thus giving them a moe apperance tends to amplify the situation. Not the most creative of applications, though I wouldn't be surprised if this happens and wouldn't mind as long as they don't go "OMG tragic loli, pity and worship her!!!!!"

I think as long as the anime doesn't take itself too seriously it's fine. From what I've seen of A-1 and Yoshino, stay off the melodrama. For the love of god.

After watching the PV a handful of times, I think I can say that the PV for ViviRed is one of the most upbeat PVs I've seen so far.

It's got an interesting premise and is on my to-watch list for Winter 2013 For me, the capturing element is the world its set in, and the character designs feel familiar but refreshed.

Zeroblade on Twitter translated some of the scans on danbooru 2 days ago.
This scan is about Akane's part-time job as a newspaper delivery, her uniform, mayonnaise and her airbike.
This one is about stuff that's already been revealed.

Wow, haven't seen zeroblade's name pop up on a series that is not Horizon. And mayonnaise? O.o

and only hovering at less than a foot off the ground is indeed wasting that airbike's potential.

This whole thing reminds me of Last Exile Fam, for some weird reason.

Depending on how well the characters are written and the general direction the story takes, this could be the best, classiest thing next season.

Well this is a fanservice show obviously, but is there any indication that it is something more than just fanservice? Personally a purely fanservice show is pretty worthless. Might as well watch a hentai at that rate.

A lot of hentai series have severe quality issues.

I was about to say the same thing. Hentai is for many things, except getting aroused. Usually it's a comedy or horror.

Now, back to Reckoner's point, it might be easy to imagine that people like myself are going to watch the show with their pants unzipped (which is blatantly false, my pants don't have zippers) there can be certain levels of appreciation of appealing material that doesn't involve actually getting off to it. I mean, this is why there are models that aren't porn stars of course.

Still, a series cannot survive on fanservice alone. It's gotta be interesting to some degree, and hopefully not in a insulting manner.

Says the person who reads To-Love-Ru Darkness Manga .

But regardless, in general, that's the case. And this is a Yoshino anime original. Should ring alarm bells just from that.

Hopefully, the director would steer him into the best path for the series, or at least make his shit the best shit sandwich at least.

If you read the thread and look at the translated explanations of the VRO universe, its plot, characters and whatnot, you'll see that it's not a "purely fanservice" show.

According to the official Twitter, if I'm reading it right, a new CM will air during the airing of next week's K episode.
It'll air during the commercial break, and it'll preview the OP for the anime.
