I'm fine with Yuuki Kaji as long as he's not the lead.

I definatly cannot get enough of Miyu Irino though.

I do find it interesting how they went with 2 male "A listers" and a complete newbie for the lead female.

Yoshitani is one of few newbie seiyuu who never voiced minor characters before, just like Mayo Suzukaze. Her role as Urabe is definitively her first role ever.

I was tired of him long before Guilty Crown, believe me.

Just as I thought. Accelerator won't be voicing Akira Tsubaki, after all. In exchange, Maika will be voicing Akira's older sister. Oh well.

@Yuki Kaji I actually like him as a VA, though pigeonholing him into badass roles seem pretty overrated, indeed.

@Ayako Yoshitani Hmm.. Her as Urabe feels like Chiwa Saito as Senjougahara to me.

That's pretty much a plot point, as far as the manga goes actually.

I think I missed something here, but how many episodes is this alloted? If it's just the usual 12 episode cour, then there's going to be an extreme case of cherry-picking of chapters that might happen (many of them are stand-alone).

Everyone is probably gonna be disturbed by the main plot, tasting her spit and such. Many people that could like this anime, won't watch (even tough the manga is very good).

TBH, I'm not exactly a prude but I find that conceit kind of gross myself. I'll watch based on the cast and what sounds like an interesting source material, but that isn't a selling point for me.

It'll also be interesting to see if the Studio (Hoods Entertainment) doesn't do too much fanservice.

Kind of hard to do, since there are chapters that actually deal with Urabe playing with or indirectly poking fun at Akira's fantasies
Spoiler for Stuff:
. All in the execution I suppose.

Oh, and episode count. Too short, and we might get the 'plot' arcs thrown together haphazardly; too long and people might find the routine stuff that come with the main pair's relationship-building boring.

Well I mean less fanservice compare to what Hoods Entertainment has done.

Ayuko Oka - Ryou Hirohashi (Aoi Yamada in Working!)

Youko Tsubaki - Misato Fukuen (Konjiki no Yami in To-Love-Ru)

Mikoto Urabe - Ayako Yoshitani - New to voice acting
Hmm ... now that is a curious lineup. Kinda interested that they gave the main female lead to a totally new VA. Am esp curious now to see how she will do....

Must admit I am having a hard time wrapping my head around Miyu Irino as Tsubaki. Hmm. He was okay as Jinta in Ano Hana I guess....

Hey - Mozart was great, but not everything he created was stupendous!

Similarly I didn't really like his role as Syaoran in Tsubasa.... But hey, diff folks have diff tastes, I guess.

How is that even making sense?

Despite how good the romance part this series has. The series is build on the foundation of fetish and sensual fantasies. It like saying KissxSis anime should have less fan service than it's manga original...

Anyway, the character design looks fairly nice and the background seem to be in-tune to the manga mood, this could make things interesting.

Must admit that I also liked the fact that the chara designs (on the website at least) look to be very faithful to the manga style. Still am having a hard time imaging it in my head though.... :\

Ah well ... will just have to wait and see a PV or something - must admit I am also interested to see the VA's "in action"....

I second, I can't really get a feel on how the mood and feel of manga can get faithfully translated to anime. But so far, so good. I just hope that doesn't go too far that the ends up kill the mood by being too depressing or color scheme.
