Hmmm... Really not sure what to think right now...

The story has juice/soda turning into girls (called "Akikan"). 0_o
And apparently they fight, but the main character doesn't want Melon, who... came from melon soda.........., to fight. But her on the other hand...

Romance-Comedy is a good thing though.

Heh? A novel about a soda can turning into a girl? That's news to me. Holy spoon.

Really nice cover art!

Sounds like an original concept, to say the least.

Heh, it looks really nice, with an interesting concept to boot. It might be a release to anticipate when it does appear. =3

I end up watching nearly all romance-type shows regardless, but this...unusual premise just gives me more of a reason to watch this one.

Don't read the novels, but from this link:
http://dash.shueisha.co.jp/feature/0705_2.html

There is:

Melon Soda
Sports Drink
Grape Juice

I doubt they have Cucumber Pepsi...

to be honest Im actually looking forward to this anime. i've been looking for some novel scans or something but can't find anything.
I REALLY REALLY hope this doesn't turn into a fan-service series (then again i've never read the novels so it MIGHT already be one)
but it'd be nice to keep this as a light romance possibly comedy......oh well we shall see. (but then again being shuffle visual designer......well who knows lol)(plz not let it turn out like shuffle LOL)

either way it's an "interesting" concept to say the least.
We dont need mecha girls in our anime, just can girls plz hahaaaha


EDIT: btw 3rd girl pic (i guess health drink) ftw
i am partial to melon drinks tho ahahahah <_< shameful ahah

the character designs are really cute tho

I agree. I kinda wish there were no fan-service or hentai series at all (Kanokon MUST be cancelled!!). Let's hope Nogizaka Haruka series doesn't turn into one either.

I thought the art looked familiar, Suzuhira Hiro is the artist for the character in Navel's Shuffle-related series.

The bishoujo in this are incarnations of soda?......that is so awesome and wierd.
