Alright! Another one of the manga I've been following for a long while is getting an anime.

I really liked this one for the role reversal, the funny moments and the really intricate artwork. I hope the detailed style of the artwork survives adaptation into anime.

Can't wait to see Ayaka and Honoka animated (yes, the guy IS named Honoka).

Looks interesting. I'll watch this for the strong female lead.

Relationship dynamic in this sounds a lot like Accel Worlds (to name one example) what with it being the heroine that takes point and the male hero kind of riding her coattails until he comes into his own. It's a pretty uncommon one historically though not as much as some people might think and becoming far less so with each passing season. The heroine in these also almost always seems to follow the same basic rule of the tall dark and bishoujo ojou-sama archetype too making me think it's some sort of very specific wish fulfillment trend of the hapless everyday male student being rescued and looked after by the "untouchable" school beauty/idol/princess who would normally never have any reason to pay special attention to them that's taking off in Japan with each passing example. It's kind of hard not to notice as I pointed out in the last thread I created.

Maybe it will be the season surprise like Jinrui wa Suitai Shimashita was the past season. My bet on the voice for Kagari is Haruka Tomatsu.*waku* *waku*

Ah, this has been a good week. I find out that one of my favorite manga (Witchcraft Works) gets a green light, and my favorite fluff series (Dog Days) also gets one as well. (Hey, after a long day, I need my fluff.)

I've been hoping for an adaptation for Witchcraft Works pretty much since it came out. I love the art. It's nuts. In a good way. I keep buying the tanks because it's fun to study the art and see all of the little tiny things the mangaka keeps putting in.

I just hope the art doesn't get flattened or hit with the boring-o-tron in the anime to the point where it loses its flavor.

My other concern (and really, this is my bigger concern) is that the story hasn't really advanced far enough for a good adaptation yet. Sure, a lot of stuff is happening, but there's SO much stuff we don't know about, that any anime is going to need either a 'To be continued' or an Anime Original ending.

waku waku indeed.

Another amung my favourit mangas. Just <3 Ayaka, especially for how huge she is O_o. Comedy is fantastic and I dont care if the protagonist is weak or not, and dominated by strong females. But theres not really much content material yet. Manga doesnt realease all that fast ><

In page #21 of the latest chapter (#28) there is a tiny announcement that in next month issue there will be an announcement about the anime. If we are optimistic they waited this long (a little more than a year) so there could be enough story for a one cour series. My guess is that they are aiming for the winter season. Any bets what studio would be the best for doing the animated (as in "non statical") scenery porn?

Turns out the answer to the above question is J.C.Staff, and the anime is indeed confirmed for January 2014.

Episode 1

I just watched the RAW of episode one and, language barrier aside, it seemed to be a pretty faithful adaptation of the first two of chapters of the manga. Lots of blazing fire!

The biggest surprise for me was the ED, which actually had me laughing out loud.

Just watched it. I did not expect it to be so faithful, and not only that, but pretty much everything about it exceeded my expectations. I feel like this anime is going to be my favorite for this season.

Honestly, the fights were awesome, CG and art are very good (although I must say that they miss on Karagi's flames), character interaction is still just a bit off for me though. The timing on the delivery of their lines had me feeling that they were rushing to get through the first two of chapters. It almost felt as if it was a flat read for Honaka (male lead) in some respects. Not enough time given for his words to really 'sink in' at different. I understand that they have chapters that are 40+ something pages at times but still...

As for the flames, the explosions are great, but Kagari is not suppose to be on fire, as the CG flames make it look to be - she is the fire - body and clothing. Those are my biggest gripes about it so far... I'll keep watching it though - for Kagari's many ways of blowing stuff up.

The animation is awesome.
Colors are really vivid and the characters look good.
The story is unusual, but very fun!
Kept me glued to the screen the entire time.
I'm definitely watching this ^^

I wonder why the anime staff chose Asami Seto to play Ayaka. IMO her voice doesn't fit stoic emotionless, characters very well. Or maybe I'm so used to her being cast as plucky, hyper-energetic characters so it sounded forced to me. Oh well. The first episode was an OK introduction; things flew by so fast it was hard to care about much.
