Read the first 8 chapters, should be a fun anime!

Chaos2Frozen 2008-07-31 06:02

An anime already? I just started the manga a few week ago :eyespin:

TrueKnight 2008-07-31 10:17

My favourite Angie is going to be animated. :D

Avisch 2008-07-31 23:47

I predicted this! wasn't that hard. I mean Sekirei got an anime. So why not this?

I haven't read this in a while but it's pretty fun.

Are there two different ways on reading the title?

Cause Mangaupdates says "Ashita no Yoichi

Director is Kujyou Rion and Animation studio is AIC.

I usually don't really care, but the script is by Takahashi Tatsuya・Kurata Hideyuki

Moonphase had such a funny reaction~

>> 脚本:高橋龍也

( ゚д゚) ・・・


(;゚д゚) ・・・


(;゚ Д゚) !?
Anyways, according to Moonphase, this thing is like a kendo version of Love Hina. If that's true, then I might look forward to it...
Then again, it's not like Ken Akamatsu's the manga-ka...

The surprise announcement for this year's TBS Anime Festa was the unveiling of Asu no Yoichi!

Guest VAs were Satou Rina (Ibuki), Tomatsu Haruka (Ayame), Tamura Yukari (Chihaya), and Hanazawa Kana (Kagome).
Artist megrock was also introduced, where she sang the OP, "Egao no Riyuu".

Although the anime premiere isn't until January, a screening of episode 1 (sans OP/ED) was held.
Spoiler for synopsis of Episode 1:

Since this was a surprise announcement, I saw the screening withouth any prior knowledge of the manga. Nevertheless, the premise is clear cut, so it wasn't necessary at all. Episode 1 served as the introduction, so I guess things will move on from here. This is the first series directing work for Kujou Rion, so there is some cause for concern.

I just flicked through the first chapter after reading that synopsis, they changed around the way he meets with them from the manga but it's no real biggie, still introduces the characters fine.

Midonin 2008-08-17 20:49

Good to see the Tomatsu/Hanazawa duo again, and Rina Satou and Yukari Tamura are also good choices.

I am amazed that an anime for this series is being made. I'm putting it on my list of anime to watch in the future. I remember reading the manga, which was fun. And after I found out that there wasn't a thread, I started the manga thread for it. Here's the link for it.

serenade_beta 2008-08-19 09:25

Official site open.

No real comments... except I had a strange urge to throw a rock at the screen when I looked at the green-haired girl.
The rest... looks normal... I just hope it doesn't crash and burn at the end like Bamboo Blade.

Bonta Kun 2008-08-29 21:15

OMG can't believe I never knew about this till now!!!!

one of my fav manga atm, mostly down to the fact I love ANGIE!!!!!!!:love::love::love::bow::bow::bow:

ellifeedn 2008-10-27 20:07

When is the anime's broadcast?

Midonin 2008-10-27 20:07

Sometime in January. That's all that's known at this point.

Midonin 2008-11-07 16:01

MoonPhase just listed two new roles, and given the characters the roles are listed for, I think people wanted to know these:

Tsubame Tsubasa: Makino Yui
Takatsukasa Angela: Nabatame Hitomi

I don't like how anime now relies so much on manga for sources of shows. Manga is manga for a reason, because the creator obviously thought it was either too much work or it didn't fit in the first place to be an anime. Though things usually convert to the other after awhile, anime made anime is still better than manga made anime just like how anime that turns into manga is usually fail as well like Geass.

Bigger issue is that series like this usually get animated when it's not even close to finishing. It's dumb. Then when the anime starts, it has so little content to work with, and therefore it just gets Tora dora'd aka offers nothing the manga couldn't have done just as well.

shomazta 2008-11-08 17:29

Eh? You seem to be missing the big picture. All these people are in it for the money, any way they can go about promoting some material just means more potential revenue for them. Whereas solely releasing either anime or manga wouldn't gather nearly as much publicity. Such is this case with this particular series, had it not been for the announcement of the manga being adapted into an anime series I would never have known about the manga, nor thought twice to read it.

If you don't like certain adaptations, there's no law or rule saying you have to expose yourself to it. I don't like dubbed anime. I don't watch dubbed anime. End.
