Why I think it could easily be ignored. The encouragement award winning entry this series is based from was entered in 2010, which means this was decided in 2011, prior to the broadcast of the Kuroko's Basketball anime and its success.

That was the date of the award, but that doesn't mean the decision to forward with a full series happened then. I think it's very likely it happened much more recently.

It takes 2 years for a KyoAni production to go from decision to airing as seen by their works going back to Nichijou. This was already in the works prior to Kuroko airing.

Pretty much agree with this. Whatever planning ahead KyoAni made, you gotta admit KuroBas is probably a major factor for the realization that the fujoshi camp can prepare to shell out money just as much as your normal Otaku.

Definitely predicting that Free will earn shitloads.

Less than 10 minutes after it opened, and the official Twitter (@iwatobi_sc) already have close to 5000 followers. Scratch that by the time I finished writing this, it might reach 5500.

Um, what. That was... Fast.

This looks great! Despite how strong the shitstorm happened, I'll definitively watch it for the bishounen, swimming, friendship and of course, emphasis on upper bodies!

OP, Rage On! by OLDCODEX will be released on 7/17. ED, as mentioned before, will be sung by the 5 seiyuu. Music production is from Lantis.

Huh? Either they planned this before it or they didn't. It has to be one or the other.

You gotta admit that production on this started prior to KuroBas's impact as evidenced by the images on DO's website. A more meaningful example would be the sales of Tiger and Bunny.

I'm very sorry that one series out of the hundreds produced each year will address themes that hold no interest for you.

I'm just saying that they might have been a tad bit more comfortable with releasing this production with recent similar titles like Kuroko's Basketball being successful. But fine Tiger and Bunny is probably a better example.

My point was just that it looks like it's the start of a new generation because wow I'm really excited about this. I mean it's swimming and anime. I've never seen that combo before.

I'm a little sad because the new PV looks a lot more... I don't know... bland, then the old one.
Still, I can't believe they are making this. This is the first time one of their CMs actually got an anime. That's actually why I was so sure it wasn't getting made.

Sadly... it seems to be 100% gay. At least the guys in KuroBa looked like guys... they looked at least a little manly. These guys look very girly, they should have the muscles a little more defined, for swimmers.

Hmm...if there isn't a strong emphasis on yaoi I might watch this...after all, I used to be a swimmer and KyoAni has yet to disappoint me.

Not necessarily talking about just here, but the outrage over this being made is ridiculous. It's just one show, and just because it features guy-only characters doesn't make it yaoi. I mean, would we really classify K-On! as yuri or even shoujo-ai?

Notice pattern with their first names?
They're all unisex names that we've seen more on girls in the past few years.
