This design is pleasant.

By the way staff page is updated and glad to see Kenji Matsumoto as art director. He was the one who drew gorgeous backgrounds in some episodes of Casshern Sins specially the ninth one.
We also have Yutaka Kurosawa as director of photography and Miyuki Ishida as color designer who both worked on Honey and Clover and Toradora!.
So with this trio we could expect at least something nice visually...(and the beginning of the PV seems to confirm it) but I'm already confident in this adaptation with the original source material and Yamauchi as director.

"Hujuwara-kun is your ordinary adolescent boy... Oooh, boy. ...but 10 years ago he noticed he had a power to see multicolored auras surrounding the persons body which he looks upon through his fingers... Sounds like Type-Moon. ...Every so often huju-wara has dreams about a war with cats... Oh shoot, deep subtle foreshadowing! ...but one day a girl fell on top of him... Never seen this before. I bet she's incredibly beautiful and will pose a love interest to him and a romantic rival to one of his existing female friends. ...what will happen now with his incoming feline enemies ?... Oh shoot, I was right about the foreshadowing!! "

i actually think this is one of the relatively more creative works story/background/character wise in recent manga works.. the overly generalized description on the first page of this thread can pretty much describe 90% of the work out there these few years so it doesn't really address anything. those are just some of the pre-reqs the editors have to ask artists to put into their work to hook some of the otakus to let them even give the work a chance.

to put those "Hujuwara-kun is your ordinary adolescent boy" "but one day a girl fell on top of him" as some kind of attempt at series summary/intro is like describing a famed steak restaurant by saying they have a-1 steak sauce on their dining table. you might as well not have tried.

as far as i'm concerned, this manga is one of those smart productions that use conventional manga personalities as basic selling points to obtain some marketing securities but then add smart twists to characters and stories as soon as the plot begins to unfold. the character facial expressions are not conventional at all either. it's an interesting read to say the least, for me.

I retract what I said in the Expectations thread... but you have to admit that "synopsis" is an insta-kill for any viewer whose response is "What???? AGAIN?????!"

A tease should invite further research - the only reason I looked is that I ruffled some feathers by initially writing it off as a show that appeared to designed for little boys (rather than late teen + 20-somethings) and that I'd seen 100 versions of already.

And it does look like its at least worth a probationary look-see.

You guys do know that synopsis is highly misleading to actual content, right? Also, you guys do know that anything that has moe cannot possibly be for just little kids fundamentally?

Looks like this one will be awesome, based on the trailer I have seen, I can say that I'll put this show in a high priority ranking.

Why does the male lead look like Last Order? How many character designers work at J.C. Staff?

That said, the trailer rocked my socks. Whoever wrote that summary should be fired.

There's a lot of close-up shots in the promo. Is that the director's signature style or something? I remember seeing something similar in Casshern SINS and that one episode in Railgun.

I'm curious because it comes from Kirara, which has a consistently good track record at producing anime series I've enjoyed.

Ok, this is looking a lot more interesting now that I've seen the previews. Art style and character designs look great, and the animation looks fantastic (I particularly liked the "evil face" part). From what I've heard this has a fantastic director on the helm, so we'll see what he can make out of this... incredibly uninspired... premise.

Now ignoring the premise, I just hope this series will be only about 13 episodes long. With only 4 volumes of manga out, animating a 2 cour series would bog it down with too much filler. It's a pity that anime-producing companies these days always choose to adapt currently running manga with a tiny amount of material released while ignoring several finished manga that would allow for a complete adaptation.

In terms of the number of volumes, it's actually five volumes out right now and I believe sometimes adaptations will make use of chapters and material not yet bound into volumes. Although I think this is mostly true of series, where adapting in order doesn't really matter much.


It's safe to assume that with some exceptions, most series will only get a cour per season. After that, it becomes a miracle if they manage to get another season as well. Many seem to stop at one.


I personally don't mind the idea of series having err filler so long as it's enjoyable and fits in the spirit of the show. Also, if done right, you can use it to flesh things out and make things stronger.

Of course, it's also possible to do it wrong. Then again, you can also screw up badly with source material as well. It all depends on the quality of the adaptation.

In any looking at the previews for this, seeing some of the artwork, and reading a few chapters to get a feel for it, I can say that I'm definitely interested in this one.


If nothing else the lead female, Merry has a design that I can approve of. So, I'll likely try out a few episodes definitely.

The anime will ends in March, and replaced in april by Denpa Onna to Seishun Otoko on the same TBS timeslot (Thursday, 25:55). So, it will be scheduled for 12 episodes only. J.C Staff also had Hidan no Aria in april also, in the same channel (it take over the Infinite Stratos timeslot, every Thursdays nights at 25:25).
