Well, Higurashi was good at least. :s
Only the second season. First season, I rather watch Another a hundred times over.

While I wouldn't say having Kon on board has me excited she did direct Zakuro , and that's pretty much all I like on her directorial resumé
Yeah she seems to do a lot better when she is directing more female oriented animes like Zakuro or Hanasakeru Seishounen,but this is LN aimed at males so I doubt we will see anything good from her here.
But hey there are animes that are good despite shitty directing like Watamote so I still have hope for this anime.

As expected, there's been an announcement from Dengeki that Golden Time vol 7 comes out in October (just in time for the anime to boost its sales). Also a gaiden in August.

Well, Hocchan is there so count me in. Seems like she has leading roles in two J.C.Staff shows this fall. Pretty interesting.

There are various "moe looks" that will wear naturally on a college girl, but your use of contrast there along with the term "moe innocent girl" - which even I associate with younger characters - made it sound like you were buying into the exact false dichotomy that Archon was riffing on. Might want to be a little more careful next time if you're just referring to the dress.

Dude, what do early 20s female college students in your area dress like? Pretty sure that dress would get a lot of attention around here. The two girls in the background strike me as more normally dressed for college students.

Also, left background girl keeps triggering my moe radar.

Zakuro is definitely my favourite Chiaki Kon anime. If I had to hazard a guess I'd say she's going to aim for something closer to Nodame with this.

... Zakuro is a "seinen" series (young adult male demographic), just saying (and so is Golden Time)

Chiaki Kon is a hit and miss with the general public, but I personally don't mind most of her works (outside of BL of course). Are they the greatest thing ever? No not IMO, but at least all her works were interesting enough that I've seen them through the end

Not gonna lie though, this had Okada written all over it, and as a fanatic of hers I'm really bummed out she's not doing series composition. Oh well, Shimo did Kokoro Connect, Infinite Stratos, and all the KyoAni Key works, and they were all watchable.

As for the cast, can't say I know enough about the source to make a valid judgement on them. That said, I can't help but feel Hocchan might not have been the best for a 'stalker girl', but I'll reserve full judgement for the fall. Glad Kayanon is here though. <3

I won't consider GT as seinen, since it's published as a light novel, usually targeted towards teens (young adults). The manga is also serialized in a shounen magazine, Dengeki Daiou.

The PV is pretty good. Let's just hope they don't screw the story up.

It's not harem, it does have romance in it.

Harem? C'mon it's made by the author of Toradora (which reminds me I gotta finish the last two LNs); it's bound to have a giant love polygon. XD

I mean, the story synopsis already has long haired girl --> main guy's friend, but I bet it's gonna expand to something like short haired girl --> main guy <--> long haired girl --> main guy's friend (unfotunately might I add ), and that's going into how the other characters are gonna be into the mix (bet the other girl is the crush of main guy's friend lol).

I mention "harem" since I feel that these three girls will have interest in him and not the way around.. as if he has intention to take them all at once.....

Here we go again. Hope we don't go into detail what harem should be...

Probably the best summary given is the one given by the author in the very last page of the first volume of the light novel, though the circumstances described there are only temporary.

There are two main guys and three main girls, several minor characters and multiple conflicting love interests. I would not call it a harem, but rather more of a shifting polygon of connections that shift gradually over time. But just as winter gradually fades into summer, there are quite a few storms along the way.

now that i've seen the actual animation, it really screams JC staff... those color palettes and filters.

well, it broadcasts on MBS. So atleast i have faith on it, not really a fan of the character designs though.
