Wow, I saw that link and I thought it was surely an April Fool's joke troll!

But it was legit. Oops, some webmaster's gonna get fired.

May'n always sounds like a faux Angela. Not a good thing, imo... Regardless, the PV looked pretty nice. Boomerangs are always an awesome factor...

I thought the same thing initially but then decided it probably wouldn't have made the ANN news listing so decided to download the opener. This looks like something worthy of my time.

Maybe its time I check out crunchyroll finally.

The only person who sounds like a faux Angela right now is Angela herself, talk about falling off....

This is the first time I've heard about this series. The OP seems interesting, but there is one thing about when the main character takes that leap that bothers me. And that is how the skirt seems to follow its own rules of gravity. I can understand that Gonzo doesn't want to have a blatant panyshot in the OP, but its execution just looks so unnatural.

Atsuko sounds fine to me. She hasn't had much room to sing in Angela's recent songs, and Angela's songs are starting to sound a bit too similar in style (much like Ali Project), but if that sound is what the producers want, who can blame them?

Now that I think about it, a more accurate description of May'n would be a karaoke box version of Mizuki Nana. All the passion, none of the refinement. She's a fanboy favorite, but she needs some more experience.

Awesome this looks pretty neat! Any anime with Range Murata at the helm of character design gets an instant watch from me! Very Happy
