An anime series about learning the English language. That's going to be rather interesting to watch.

I thought that too, but I'm not so sure that this series will be like that. If done right that can be funny, but I expect another "cute girls do cute things" -series, like Ichigo Mashimaro, Binchoutan or Lucky Star.

Anyway, I can't wait for July.

How absurdly strange... I know someone over on the MT forums who's going to be vibrating right out of his shoes over this.

Dude I think this is the audio file I downloaded once where this cute little imouto type character tries to teach you English and than screeches at you if you get it wrong. How are they going to make an anime out of this? I can just imagine a lot of cutesy stuff and lots of weirdness referring to legendary anime lines translated into Engrish and spoken as such.

I heard Tamara Yukari speak serious engrish in Moetan. It will a painful 30 minutes.

Wait, since I was born in Hong Kong and knew 成語動畫廊 last around 5 minutes, why should Moetan last longer than that?

If everything fails, go with Lucky Star route and it "should" work.

The heck...?

Maybe it'll be some kind of 4-koma thing with gags about Moetan trying to teach Japanese of varying degrees of learning ability English. That's about the only thing I can imagine that would have anything to do with the source material and still work as an anime.

On the other hand, I think I'm starting to see what Kaioshin's been on about with moe taking over enslaving us to mediocrity...

5 minutes of Moetan has more otaku jokes than 1 episode of Lucky Star.

The fun thing is listening to the joke in Japanese (or read it) to see if you get the joke/reference, then read the (most probably wrong) English translation, then listen to the mangled Engrish pronounciation. One joke works 3 times in Moetan.

That's awesomely good news
I didn't think there'd be an anime somedays out of it, but I'm very happy about it, especially since it looks really cute from the anime webpage already^^ (plus they seem to be going to use the original Moetan book artstyle more or less which I prefered to Moetan 2)
Actually it seems like POP is gonna be doing the cg for the anime (well at least I see POP in it though I can't really read what it says but I can assume it means this )

I just went on the website. The loli on the left seemed to be providing a panty shot, but upon closer look it's just extremely tight fitting clothing. Also kind of revealing in the upper regions too. Is this moe or just loli in this case. Can something still be moe if it's sexualized?

Its that tension just before going over the line that makes it work ..... ( )
Probably better not to over-label it before you see it in progress.

You just check the book and see what you think of it and yes it has panties shots I think.
Also both girls are actually the same girl I think <__<
The third book, maybe maybe not, I dunno.
Also I think Ink-chan's supposed 17, from what it is said which remind me of that one pic
Spoiler for big picture:

Ahhh... so cute ^_^. Wonder if they can figure out a interesting storyline. As long as it isn't around the magical girl thingy, then it will be ok. (somewhat)

I've been complaining about that. I found that it was no help so I gave up.

Considering Ink-chan transforms into Moetan (the 2 girls shown is actually the same girl before and after the transformation) chances are actually kinda high it might be a magical girl anime.

While looking around I happened to find a Moetan winamp skin for those interested, and yes all the images are coming from the Moetan book, even the panties shot one.

Ink-chan travels the world with her magical-girl skills bonking misusers of the English language on the head and bringing Ruv-u to the world....... or not.

The imagery is just full of cute ... (I can't help that some people see what they want to see ).

The big pic by Thany demonstrates the wonders of art style and how it create the appearance of "agelessness" depending on the context.

This must be a joke. An anime named Moe-tan based on a English teaching book for otaku... This must be some kind of joke.

But I can't resist it... IT'S SO CUTE!!! AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHH!!!
