Don't underestimate the female audience market; if there is anything I learned from the shop I hang out, women can pay a lot of money for what they want.

So, has there been ANYTHING posted for the character designs? Anywhere that actually talks about the series rather than the producers? Not that speculating about KyoAni isn't fun in it's own right...

The wikipedia entry is fairly comprehensive--takes a look at both the regular and the shoujo adapatations.

Thanks! The Google search I did took me to a different wikipedia entry (the one for the mascot), and I was getting a little confused

I'm still holding out on a surprise upset Aya Hirano female lead replacement ala Lucky Star, though I think Daisuke Ono will stay since he's already a popular regular with Kyoani. Although I think Aya Hirano is now very unpopular in Japan so she might no longer be the draw she once was when they made the decision to change to the cast of Lucky Star from the Drama CD.

Hmm...KyoAni plus an interesting premise plus a chance to get a look into a mind of a fangirl...

I think I may watch this one.

Really. And maybe even the air date is not so distant.
The design seem good too, a good adaptation of the original... and, with the massive presence of female animators in Kyoto animation staff, I fear a real fujoshi madness for this one.

Talking

They probably needed to vent their frustration after all the teasing of Itsuki/Kyon and Tomoya/Sunohara.

I'll take a wild bite on it. Let me guess, seen how everyone is talking about production and wikipedia's description of the plot just spins around characters, it's one of those show's about nothing and everything with no real plot hole for the watcher to cuddle in. Correct?

That was my very first thought after the announcement

Odd. The official website just... disappeared.

I notice Moonphase has a post about this disappearance which sounds a bit pessimistic (if I did get the meaning right). Should we actually be a bit worried, or is this fact just to be ignored? It may be a meaningless technical error, for all I know.

Edit: This may indeed be a bit worrisome. Please head to Canned Dogs for a detailed article on the issue and the possibility of the series being cancelled...


The rest of my post is totally unrelated...

It may be a trend to hate Hirano these days, particularly on 2ch and in certain English-speaking communities (and I can't say I've never done it either) - which is why we tend to feel her popularity has eroded. But I reckon she's maintained a nice fanbase nevertheless. Her album Riot Girl sold fairly well, and she keeps on getting important roles, such as her upcoming performance in White Album. The producers wouldn't have cast a very unpopular person to star with Nana Mizuki, I think.

In despair

I'd be worried, doesn't look like a stunt, especially if both sites removed references to the anime. I think negotiations broke down, or were suddenly cut.

Good, I wasn't excited about an anime adaptation of this type of manga.

Kyoto Animation should concentrate on animating bishoujo games, shounen (boy's) light novels, and male oriented moe 4-panel manga :P

Here's hoping they are just trolling Haruhi fans, giving them a sense of hope. :P
