Website has been updated but no trailers . They do show the char designs for the main chars. Doesn't look too bad, though I'm still curious how they are gonna animate the mature/manly faces, if they decided to do it at all.

...O_O

The character designs were unimaginably horrible. Literally, I could not imagine the designs this bad... For one thing, every character looks like they are chewing one of those jawbreakers or gum balls in their mouth...

Uwa... My expectations for this anime goes down yet again.

While I see what you are talking about, their chubby cheeks and all, aren't you being overly critical? It's not like the style makes the chars look nothing like they should, and while I don't think it's the best animation style for this show, to say its "unimaginably horrible" is going too far. You could at least reserve such harsh statements until you see a trailer.

Looks much better than I expected, not as far off with the animation style as I originally thought, but wth? They're redoing the OVAs? or are they rehashing material?

EEHHH!?
whatthe hck is with the chara design all of a sudden? It's horrendous
this doesn't represent the OVA's original cast at all. I mean, look at how far their faces.. and bodies! even the VA's got replaced

..and here I thought Kanokon already ended

I'm getting Negima vibes from the animation O_o I dunno, but after watching the OVAs, it looks just, well, bad. I'll still watch the first episode or so, but that preview left a bad taste in my mouth

I said "WTF" to get rid of that bad taste in the mouth. WTF did not help because it's still there. That said, will watch first episode.

It's like going from Minami-ke to Okawari, but multiplied tenfold. T_T

Then again, what can we expect from OVA quality to TV series transition? >_>

First episode will tell if the viewers need to forget about the OVA all together to have any chance of enjoying the TV-series. The OVA was a blast, so really want to enjoy the TV series as well.

It might be hard to forget, since it looks like they might take a couple of sub-eps from the OVA. I'm for sure that the rubber ball contest where the balls flip up the girls' skirt has been done. I just hope they don't try to redo the entire OVA as the first eps of the TV series, cuz that'd be a serious cop out .

Does anyone find it amusing that an animation company that mostly does hentai does a better job portraying the original character designs than this?

Nothing strange about that. Drawing naked human body in many different poses is the hardest thing you can ever do as an artist, that's why almost all the best (artwise) mangakas have either an extensive hentai background or a lot of action-oriented shounen titles behind their belt.

Dame da, koryaa...

The art/character design is a lost cause... The "real" faces for the male are okay, but the females' "real" faces are almost 100% gross (a few of the times were okay though).
The normal character designs are a level down from the OVA.

Comedy-wise, it wasn't great either.
They use some of the OVA material (changing it a bit), but in that case, we might as well watch the OVA that has better character design with the same joke.
The parts that I think were TV-original were pretty bad... Maybe a kid could watch those jokes and enjoy it... I mean,
Spoiler for ...:

You can still watch this, as the content isn't horribly, but compared to the OVA, it's plain and just boring...

Song-wise, OP was no good visually or the song, and the ED was decent there...

...I'm not sure whether I'll be able to continue watching this for 11-12 more episodes... Maybe just one more episode for a try...

Oh, one more thing, there's no fanservice. The panty shots don't exist (my faint memories tell me there were in the OVA).

There were panty shots indeed, and a lot of other sexual references.

It seems the anime is targeting a different, younger age group.

But yeah, it's very disappointing, especially for those who were expecting something along the lines of the OVA.
