considered as lolis since they have not reached 18.
I'll bite... why 18? That age is not connected with any legal definition of maturity in Japan (or in most of the US, Canada, or the UK as far as age-of-consent for that matter ....)

"loli" -- most definitions tag that term as being related to being "less than 12yrs old" in terms of anime....

But we're talking about watching a series, not taking them out on a date..... Grape-chan in Akikan! would be an example of "loli", or Nanoha when she first starts out at age 9.

12 years old? I thought it would be around 14 to be considered as loli

Back to topic, I'm really looking forward for this anime, the manga is quite hilarious, especiallya the teacher, she seems to have split personality like negishi/krauser, including the teeth guitar LOL

Classical Music wise, someone on their team is well-versed in it. Jazz? I have no idea. No precedence so far... I think.

Cheers.

Why all the worries about ecchiness, say I? To me this clearly seems like strictly a music-based comedy series; anything more than onsen shots would seem like too much, so I don't think we need worry about that if it's not your cup of tea.

Actually, the age limit is arbitrary imo. A strict definition would require a combination of this and this which means approx lower age limit is 10 yo and upper age limit is 16 yo combined with being seductive.

Age + behavior = lolita.

Japan has a weird broadcasting system like that where they like to extend the hours of the day slightly past 24. It technically broadcasts during the early hours of Friday (bout 2am or so i think) but they consider it as Thursday night at 26:00.

EDIT: Damn beaten to the punch by Schneizel! ><
Either way it'll beging it's broadcast in just a few hours.

It isn't just Japan that does this. "Adult Swim Saturday" anyone?
