At a very basic level, yes, but the process isn't that simple. That aside, I'm just surprised they have been so successful that they have actually managed to accumulate the cash needed for simulcast rights of a Nichigo series and a Kyoani property, or at least the industry weight to toss around a deal or two. They wouldn't have been able to do this even a year ago.

According to Okada Mari (series composition+Script) from Megami Interview articles;
-'Work' is one of the main theme.
-Ohana + friends are still high-schooler, so she wants to focus on creating mood of 'not being in the society yet'.
-She put ero scenes frequently.

Interesting considering even the most "ero" scans we have are quite tame by today's standards

How should we interpret that? Does she mean service scenes, or is she referring to sexual encounters between characters (like what you might find in live action teen dramas)?

She just said 'Although I put ero-scenes frequently, its direction will be something fresh that can blow away all the thoughts. (laugh)' I also not really sure of what did she mean by 'ero-scene' but I think she meant service scenes, but nothing explicit as panty shot or whatever.

That would be lame. Would like to see some real relationship interaction, not that let's hold hands because were both "innocent and pure".

^ why lame?... How service scene relates anyway with 'real relationship interactions'? I don't care if it is not explicit fanservice like certain rioriogate or ceratin underwear appreciation club animu. Service scenes are inevitable when there are tons of female characters but less male.

Plus, it's not like it will affect the series in anyway.

Fanservice with nothing explicit?That kind of sounds weird

edit: then again merry dreameater has "navel porn" so I guess I can understand.

I don't see why you got that impression from that quote,characters can still "really" interact,it just means we won't be seeing their panties.

Not talking about panties/cleavage shots. I'm talking about sexual scenes, of course well never see them actually doing it but it can be implied, like in that one scene between Kira and Flay in Gundam Seed. Anyways that's what I thought when the script writer about putting "ero scenes" possibly for the couple's.

maybe it'll be erotically charged situations with little fanservice like Hatsukoi Limited.

There's also the more "artistic"/seamlessly integrated approach to service that you might find in books and movies.

In True Tears, Okada tried to experiment with some of that (in fact, one particular scene involving Hiromi was highly reminiscent of something from a renowned Japanese novel), although the execution didn't seem to leave much of an impression on viewers.

Strange, I just found a manga for this series. Which one is supposed to be the original work? the anime or the manga?

Anime. Manga's just a precursor (top line of the picture) based on the anime storyboard.

Ep 1 and further speculations:

I am thoroughly impressed with this first episode. Good pacing (maybe a little rushed at the start regarding Ohana's mother and de facto partner) and this series has done in 1 episode what many other series may have taken a whole season. Characters are great, voice actors are great, animation and background music are superb and the plot for a slice of life, is fantastic. Also largely fan-service free (except for one particular scene), "moe-blob" free and is neither over-melodramatic or over-comedic . In conclusion, this is very well crafted with very high production values. My expectations were already very high and it managed to even beat that. If the series continues on how I think it will pan out, this can surely end up on my favorites list.

I don't know what other anime I can compare this to, but I were to put genre labels on it, slice of life, teen drama, coming-of-age all comes to mind. Future romance elements are possible as well. I would say this looks like it could be an animated, Japanese equivalent of popular western TV teen dramas such as The OC, One Tree Hill, Dawsons Creek etc. If I were to further categorise it, it may turn out to be the teen equivalent of Honey and Clover (which was a coming of age story regarding university students). If I were to compare this to other P.A. Works' series, it feels different from True Tears (which was more romance focused while this seems to be a coming-of-age story) and definitely different from the slapstick-->"Key" melodrama approach that Angel Beats was (and much of Air, Kanon, Clannad was as well). Unless I've missed out somewhere, but this seems to be one of the first animes of its type - at least what it appears to be aiming for.

Also love the OP (Ending song for ep1 which I assume is going to be the OP from eps 2 and onwards). Really fits within the atmosphere of the show.

Spoiler for Synopsis of episode 1::

Really enjoyed this, hopefully P.A Works can keep the production values up, the characters develop well and they make good use of the two cours it will be going for. Nice OP too...
