This series is giving me Aria flashbacks. All they need is an Athena character and everything fits. And Geez, the characters do have a similar look to K-On....

Yes, it appears that some people must have no life. While I am too busy to watch all the anime that I like there are others that have so much free time that they can watch every episode of an anime they claim to hate just so they can post about how bad they think it is.

While we wait for the next Ep, i just did some research on my theory regarding an interesting observation i pointed out earlier, that was quickly shot down by some of our animu experts. Now I reviewed what i know about Rio and Felicia: Rio rides bikes and pretends to be tough, while Filicia says ara alot, likes tea and teases Rio.

Of what does this remind me off...

Bonus question: The story writer for Mai-HiME/Otome, Yoshino Hiroyuki, also did what other recent anime ?

+ Rep for right answer

Qwaser.

I think the characters are more than similar to those from K-on!

Hmm.. I didn't think about comparing them to Rio, and Felica but now that I think about it they do remind me of

Yep, i thought exactly of these two. Their dynamics are similar at this point.

I was going for Sora no Woto but that answer is pretty good too ^^ I see a connection between SnW and Mai-Hime in the way certain characters interact, which fueled my theory of a similar outcome. But i heard about the rampant yuri in Qwaser, so that one may be even better evidence...

Episode 6 was pretty cool, liked the dual story line approach, Did anyone think the one guy looked sort of like Kimbly from Full Metal Alchemist? Noel with the that huge gun was priceless.

So, the city in this show is based on is Cuenca Spain, at least based on the photo's on this website.
http://www.geocities.jp/cuenca413/temp.html, which is worksafe.
Sankaku Complex, which has the Photos with appropriate screencaps isn't worksafe.

I also thought as much, though it's nice to see some images. I never tire of seeing such a beautiful setting.

The town is available in Street View. Now we need the exact locations.

Normally I don't like moe only because I feel it gets in the way of the plot most cases, but I like how this show stays on task with its plotline. The last episode for example was pretty balling. I'm hoping for some more development on the plot presented in the beginning of the first episode, personally.

Also,

Well, it's quite amazing how they took a exact same town and adapted it to the Anime setting. There was a quite a number animes that did take alot of real life locations and put them in their anime.

Yeah I noticed the map in the background of the last episode showed that seize was where spain is (was?). Also only dawned on me that its seize as in 16, not just a made up place name after I saw the map with all the other numbers on.

Those real life shots are awesome. Suprising how quickly they were found, and how close to reality they animated the town, although I guess the precedent was set with K-On. That was incredibly close in detail to it's real life counterpart school.
