How well Toei works depends on the director as well. It's he who organises how the show will look like and make the best out of what might be an otherwise mediocre studio - and don't look down on Toei all the time, they can do some good stuff if they want to (some eps of Gaiking were very well animated).

Furthermore in Bakeneko it appears to me that they're likely to get their better animators because we've got one of the more widely respected animators, Takashi Hashimoto, doing the (unprecedented) work of character design... So he'd be a major factor in attracting good talent to the show, which is why the last episode had such great animation.

Of course, the concerns might be more valid spread over a 12 episode series since the director would presumably have less tight control. But I have faith that they'll manage to rope in good non-Toei animators or something, and that the visual team will work hard to make this something different. I felt that Bakeneko already showed an encouraging direction in which they were putting their efforts.

But well, this is just me postulating, it's not like I really know what goes on Toei is a little funny anyway, after all they've been around for so mindbogglingly long that they do do things a bit differently.

This is indeed great news a sequel to Ayakashi that to the poster has my fave arc Bakenko Arc . Its indeed the best news I have heard in a while . DumB Q : The eye does it have significance in Japanese myth and culture . I have seen this eye before in 100 Stories . Mataichi used to carry a shaft with that same eye .

As a fan of Kyougoku Natsuhiko's Hundred Stories novels (and the animated version of course) and of the third arc of Ayakashi, I am overjoyed!

Awww. . . I was hoping for another Honey-and-Clover-esque romantic comedy. Oh well, I'll give this a chance, though I'm not a huge fan of the genre.

I'm glad I'm not the only one who thought this post was a little weird. O-o; Maybe it was a reference to the lack of such a series in the line up so far this year?

Anyway. I too am rather interested in this eye. I do believe it also made an appearance somewhere in Pokemon, but I'm not certain. At first I thought it was just something the Japanese imported from Egypt, but I'm not certain anymore.

I'm pretty sure I will love this series. I've watched the third arc of Ayakashi seven times already.

I'll explain, since mangafanatic's comments seem strange to some. This is a Noitamina anime. Honey and Clove was also a Noitamina anime. Every time that a Noitamina ends, there is a certain amount of speculation about what the next one will be. It is not surprising that some people hope for a return to Noitamina doing romantic comedy.

Oww, yes. I apologize for my ambiguity. I meant that I was hoping this block [Noitamina] would be filled by another romantic comedy.

Wow, I should check the unaired forum more often!

Bakeneko was easily my favourite arc so this news makes me very happy indeed!

It just came to my attention that the first episode will be aired on Animax on June 19th (yes, that's in less than 3 weeks !!), so I thought I would update the thread.
(source : http://www.animax.co.jp/feature/index.php?code=243051 )

Aaah, I hope some of the usual groups will post the raw.

! You're right! Even with current shows, they'll be reaching their 12th/13th episode around that time. Oh snap. I'm running out of time but I must watch Mononoke...

Thanks for the heads-up. I bet you someone will sub this though.

I'm not sure if that's when Mononoke starts, as the program aired on 6/19 is titled Ayakashi (ref - http://www.animax.co.jp/program/week...2&time_zone=24). Judging from the previous weeks' airing schedule, it looks like they're just reairing Ayakashi before Mononoke starts in July. Nice sleuthing there though, Snoop` .

What the...!
I spotted Bakeneko and the medicine-seller on the main page, so I thought it was it !
Oh snap.
Sorry for the useless bumping, I should have read more carefully...

Until July, then !

I found it on 猫メガバイト, a charming and hilarious little fansite dedicated to Gankutsuou and Bakeneko. (browse through the お絵描き掲示板 section and you'll eventually find the pic)
