There's so much more to shoujo manga than this... why can't we have an adaptation of a shoujo horror manga, or a mystery or a dark fantasy or basically anything that is not cute and and not set in a high school or *gasp* is not a romance... (<- rhetoric question)
This.

There is so much potential here, why settle for the low hanging fruit?

It's so sad to read all of these negative opinions about one of my favourite mangas, especially by people who haven't even read it

I don't have a negative opinion about this manga, I'm sure it's very nice and I'm sure that this anime is going to be very nice, and those who are into this kind of stuff will really appreciate it.

I'm just complaining that all the recent shoujo manga adaptations that we're getting belong to certain genres, and we rarely ever get something different... even though there are many awesome shoujo manga that are not high school romances or fantasy adventure romances. It's like anime producers are trying to solidify the stereotypes about shoujo manga...

Lol, this is actually one of those very few shoujo series I like...along with Kimi ni Todoke, Tonari no Kaibutsu-kun, and Kaichou wa Maid-sama.

I'll admit - I've become a bit weary of romance driven shoujo, school or otherwise. Having low expectations might work in the series' favor.

Bones do have a strong track record of bringing solid manga to life on screen, so I'm sure this show will be good for what it is. It just doesn't seem a challenging choice to adapt as others have suggested.

I struggle to recall seeing a shoujo horror anime though.

OMG! Yes!
I love the manga.
Glad it's getting an anime.

SO MUCH THIS.


Sounds like a good plot and I'll check out the manga, but the redhaired MC gives me some serious Yona vibes.

OMG! This is fudging awesome! I absolutely adore this manga! Crossing my fingers for at least two-cours and hope that they won't fudge up the adaptation.

Ah, good news to end the night.

(Now I'm hoping they may animate Dengeki Daisy next...:3 Too bad one of my all time favorite, Kanata Kara, will never get an anime... ...or the hope that Demon Eyes Kyo will ever get a proper adaptation. =_= ...sorry, going off topic here.)

Just read a few chapters, and I'm really digging this. I don't think the term "quiet dignity" describes any other shoujo manga as aptly as it does this one.

I have faith in BONES. Their original shows tend to vary in quality, but their adaptations are fantastic. I have very fond memories of Zetsuen no Tempest.

this is one of the best manga out there! the heroine is not wimpy and helpless, so don't expect your ordinary kind of need-saving-girl.

and the hero isn't a smartass. I've been expecting an animation. Great to finally see it! hope the art will be the same as the one in the manga.

Not only is she not wimpy and helpless but she's...gasp!...a scientific/medical intellect! Now you don't get that type of shoujo heroine (who's the MC) every day! That's got to top the cake...(at least for me!)

Yeah, very pumped for this one. Shoujo is increasingly becoming an oasis in a desert of LN adaptations.
