This was one of the few shows I was curious about, so...woo!

Am I going to have to wait a week to watch the newest episode (IE I won't be able to watch episode 1 till next Sunday)?

I didn't particularly mind it with Skip Beat! and I understand they need to give some priority to those who pay them, I just wish it would say right in the article whether or not there will be a week delay for new episodes or not.

All TV Tokyo simulcast shows (that start on time) are same day ep 1 and ep2+ are delayed a week for non-paying members.

I'm also curious about the show, but I read an article about the visuals recently and it is quite disappointing if you compare it to the manga.

Everyone keeps saying the "visuals are a dissapointment". I think its quite the opposite - the visuals look EXACTLY like the manga. I don't think anyone that said the visuals were a dissapointment have ever SEEN the manga. The art style is different than many other mangas. The art for the anime looks perfect when compared to the manga. It's not the glitzy art found in a lot of newer anime.

I am going to give this series a chance, but only because the creator of this series made School Rumble. But to be honest, I am not really expecting much.

On Crunchyroll the visuals will look 5 times worse

I'm more excited about this than the FMA:B news. Awesome.

I hate SHAFT.

In "Natsu No Arashi" only the main characters and the setting are taken from the manga.

The story, once again, is completely rewritten.

The art/animation/effects are great, but I must say SHAFT is SO CLOSE to ruin another good story ... like they did in Negima 2nd season.

Definitely a bonus. I haven't read the manga... so any differences between the two won't affect my opinion of the series. I'm looking forward to this more than FMA as well.

Saw it at Crunchyroll.com earlier today. Video quality was freaking amazing at 480p. It doesn't get any better definition or faster than that on the internets, trust me.

The old school art style kind of turns me off, but the plot was very very interesting.
Oh well, if I can sit through an entire season of Linebarrels' art style, I should be able to get over Natsu no Arashi's bad art and enjoy the series all the same.

Oh no! Different means bad! It is sacrilege to change a series when adapting it from manga to anime!

aww, come on! I didn't mean it that way! Laughing

I mean... SHAFT's forte is NOT storywriting, ok?
Negima fans know what I mean, that's all... it's just a waste to let those guys ruin such a refreshing series like this


EDIT: ooooopsy Razz
a birdy told be this show actually follows the manga... in a strange way it seems Embarassed

The quality was so amazing it had :
- Jerky animations
- Banding all over the places
- Chroma bleeding everywhere




So much for a paid service, lol.
