Harukanaru Toki no Naka de

Yeah!! The first episode aired today! :p So I think I'll start Harukanaru Toki no Naka de ~Hachiyou Shou~ discussion. As a long-time fan of this series, I'm happy to see it animated...

The story behind this series is:

The series is based off of a video game of the same name. It is about a schoolgirl named Akane who is pulled into another world. There, she becomes the Ryuujin no Miko (priestess/shrine maiden), destined to save their world. It's basically like Fushigi Yuugi, but better. :P Fushigi Yuugi was my first anime obsession, so FY fans will love Haruka.

Another good point with this series is the great character designs, which can be seen on this page of the official site

The voice cast is also excellent:

Tomoko Kawakami (Hikaru no Go's Hikaru, Utena's Utena) as Akane
Akira Ishida (Gaara, Saiyuki's Hakkai) as Yasuaki
Kazuhiko Inoue (Kakashi) as Tomomasa
Okiayu Ryoutaro (Fruit's Basket's Shigure, Prince of Tennis' Tezuka) as Akram
Miki Shinichiro (Escaflowne's Allen) as Yorihisa
Hoshi Souichirou (GetBackers' Kazuki) as Eisen
Tomokazu Seki (Gravitation's Shuichi, Fruits Basket's Kyo) as Tenma
Ikue Ohtani (Escaflowne's Merle, Pikachu!!) as Fuji
Yuu Asakawa (Love Hina's Motoko, Azumanga Daioh's Sakaki) as Sefuru

So, yeah, that's my little plug for the series. :P Is anyone going to be subbing this series? Has anyone seen episode 1 to comment on it? On a final note, the official site has a reaaaally short trailer for the series right here.
