Could you (or someone) please translate the title for us? I only mostly understand it.

Poverty (something) story.

raphaŽl 2006-05-24 01:28

It means "A story of poor sisters". Basically. :p

That "shimai" thing is composed from the 2 kanji "ane" (the same as oneesan), or big sister and "imôto", little sister.

Anime On DVD Community Forums: Binbou Shimai Monogatari Official Website


The Toei Animation official website for Binbou Shimai Monogatari (Story of Poor Sisters) has opened.

The illustration by manga creator Kazuto Izumi of the Yamada sisters - with 9-year-old Asu on the left and 15-year-old Kyou on the right - which currently appears on the home page of the official website also appears on one of the pages of the booklet for the Binbou Shimai Monogatari drama CD - specifically, on the page which lists the cast and the staff.

A number of illustrations by Kazuto Izumi grace the booklet, the covers, and the CD. The first press bonus extra is an illustrated postcard.

Wow :eek: look at Binbou Shimai Monogatari's anime site:

Seinen moe~ anime gets treated well Yay :D
So detailed :eek: Yay :D now i'm really excited :)

Is this going to be on par with the quality of the seinen moe~ anime Kamichu! ? I really really hope so >.<

Maybe I'm getting ahead of myself >.< I guess we'll have to wait and see the first episode to know.

Anyway someone told me (I'm still not sure about this) that its going to be only 10 episodes >.< (Could it be like Kamichu!; by that I mean there will be more episodes that will be released only on DVD).

DaFool 2006-06-01 08:57

Um, No.

This is Toei animation. Which means, thick lines.

At best I can hope for Interlude quality, but something like Kamichu, or heck even Koi Kaze / Someday's Dreamers / Haibane Renmei or other soft-style anime?

In my dreams.

Kamichu on a budget, it is...(well the trailer quality sucks anyway...who knows)

NeoSam 2006-06-16 10:36

I think that looked great :) (maybe the trailer quality sucked >.< )

Anyone that likes slice of life seinen drama, will love this anime :)

Zappster 2006-06-16 12:02

I don't know, it's kind of hard to say anything about it from that trailer. There's so little to it.

That aside, it sounds like the kind of thing I'd enjoy. I'll definitely check it out if someone subs it(I think one or two groups are planning to).

Kensuke 2006-06-17 10:49

Twin Spica without the scifi themes? Or maybe not as sad as that. Well, it is moe and slice of life, so count me in.

NeoSam 2006-06-19 09:44

July 2006 issue of the seinen(young men's) manga magazine Sunday GX (Sunday Gene-X)
