Ah, so it's really getting an anime? GREAT! :)

I am quite suprised it is going to be animated. Have read first 3 vols, I'd say it is a good one. Hope the anime will be handled well.

Woah... so fast? There is only a few vols. I don't think they have enough for a 24-26 serie.

Just based on that info this has gotten my attn! The art from the manga seems pretty nice, as herbert also said, I hope the anime is well handled. :D

lommm 2007-08-04 21:21

this could go either way, but it looks nice and it has my attention

Majek 2007-08-07 08:50

oooh. Will have to watch this. o.ob

Sety 2007-08-07 10:19

If its half as decent as the manga it could be quite good.

NeoSam 2007-08-29 09:32

An official site for BAMBOO BLADE anime has opened:

Broadcast: October 2, 2007

cyth 2007-09-27 10:10

So the official site has put up a promotional clip now.

I've read the first volume of the manga and, wow, there's a great potential for a good anime adaptation. A very good cast, both female and male, and definitely not your average Bishojo-anime (the thing I feared the first time I've eared about this). I'm so looking forward to see Tama-chan in action (Alice Carrol VA? It may work well!).

The trailer look nice, and Kirino VA is really fitting (but maybe is only my love for Sato Sei :heh:).

S_K 2007-09-27 16:25

I was looking at the trailer, more like a promo for this, and it really caught my attention.
I'm always open for many sports anime, But this looks really interesting, especially its based on kendo which I've never seen before

Ok i just watched the promo, and I really liked the song because its very catchy and good, makes met want to watch it more now

LionsMane 2007-09-27 17:39

This something I will definitely be checking out. I like sports anime though I've been told(and as it's been posted in this thread) it falls more in the comedy genre. Still looks interesting. I've never read the manga but everyone I talk to says it's enjoyable. It's worth a shot in my opinion.
