These are the 2 posts I made (put together) from FTV....proof ---> http://boards.fansub.tv/index.php?sh...0&#entry168912

This thread seems to be abandoned...so I'm giving it a helping hand...LOL.

Lolz.....Chobits + Nagi-look-a-like (of Hayate no Gotoku!).

Koharu Biyori (Indian Summer), serialized in: Dengeki Moeoh. Started publication in 2004, the author is Mizuki Takehito and the publisher is Media Works.


Genre: Seinen, Comedy, Romance, *Maid*, Slice-of-Life, Science Fiction
Japanese Title: こはるびより
Director: Takayuki Inagaki
Original Creator: Mizuki Takehito
Series Composition: Takashi Aoshima
Music: Tsuyoshi Watanabe
Original creator: Takehito Mizuki
Art director: Nariyuki Ogi
Director of Photography: Katsushi Tanabe
Animation Production: Doumu
Background Art: Green
Music Production: Music Brains
Photography: Metaphysic Pictures
Sound Production: Magic Capsule

CAST:

Eri Kitamura as Yui
Satomi Akesaka as Minori
Takayuki Kondou as Takaya Murase

I'm guessing the character of Minori (female of course) is going to be either another maid robot or a possible love interest for Takaya.

I'm not sure if this manga is being scanlated or not.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

3 Volumes out so far for the manga....the manga is not being scanlated in English at all according to my sources.

Unfortunately, no confirmed release date at the moment and the official website still hasn't been updates by anyone.

THE start of the OP is like the stinging or hornets through my ears.



The first 'episode' was pretty much 100% nonstop T&A. Really really trashy T&A. I'm not certain what I was expecting though.

Jaalin's post regarding this show pretty much summed it up (look at random curiosity for details). A whole lot of otaku, fanservice, fetishes, and WTF mashed together into a dangerous mix. It's like bukkake heaven.


EDIT: Re that video:

I kept hearing the word "chi chi" over and over again.

OH SNAP!!! I just saw Random Curiosity's blog about it and...WHAT THE FLIP??!! I'm SO happy I didn't watch this!! I mean, if this is an OVA then this should be rated 'Adults Only'! Sorry about that. I feel like an idiot.

Well now, this certainly was ... how do i put it ... a mentally unorthodox experience ?

All sorts of cliches, cameos and questionable humor thrown together in a pot, layered with a thick dose of fanservice. I don't know whats worse - the mental damage i took from this or the fact i actually enjoyed the episode somewhat as it actually made me laugh every now and then Don't have much more to say, because there is not much to talk about. 3 episodes, right ? I should be able to last all 3

This was an early broadcast of the first volume (all three 10-minute episodes). There is no word whether the second volume will be released.

hahaha...I loved HiMM so naturally this ova hits the spot...but as i watch the things just continued to get crazier and crazier...i do believe this has actually surpassed the mental use of elephants that has featured in inukami...i think my brain just melted...

The OP was awesome! (how can anyone not like it )

Just admit that you like mindless fanservice-y anime like many out there. I don't like fanservicey anime btw. Now let's go trick NSW into watching it.

P.S. That baby is a potential pervert... and the proof to support such reckless statement:

Drat, i have been caught Well, fanservice is not something to scare me away with, thats for sure (unless it is used in a retarded manner ...KnS *cough*). This show is definitely high on that scale, and quite shamelessly at that. Good thing is - it is quite funny to boot. Now, getting NSW to watch this might be tricky though ... *goes to plot in a corner*

I have further proof that Sky is actually secretely a closet perv. One day when we were chatting he had a Freudian slip:

Spoiler for Skyfall is hiding something:


So you see Skyfall does in fact like dirty comedy after all. That said I'm like the pot calling the kettle black.

PS: Sorry Sky, I told you I was going to use it someday when you least expected.

I watched it, and Yui is such a hopeless "straight girl" it's hilarious . Even the mom and the loli are weirdoes. At this point one has to ask, is everyone else weird or are they the weird one?
