Besides the sci-fi and Kyon not being the only male, this sounds sort of like The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya.

Most original story concept ever!
Again, production budget just wasted.

I happen to like moe harems (unoriginal or not). I'll reserve judgment. -_-

Hm... this sounds like it could be along the lines of a Lucky Star or Hyakko. I look forward to it. Smile

The sad part is that the fandom will love it.

Wow, moe school girl harem anime with generic character designs and an overdone premise. Didn't see THAT coming. :sigh:

Just another harem and fanservice laden show I will not watch. Seriously, there must be other ideas for shows that haven't been done a thousand times already.

Moe, fanservice and harem antics, nothing new at all.

As much as I love moe and harem comedies, this just looks plain awful. Then again, after the godawful H2O I'm automatically biased as soon as I see that artwork, so maybe it'll be better...but christ I hate that art. So much.

I already call Waaaaah-bulance on this thread. Do you people seriously have nothing else to do but wine-n-cheese about every "fan-friendly" show?

How about a good observation, like why aren't Light Novels taking off in R1? Seven Seas and Tokyopop tested the waters, and didn't like what they felt. It seems that the Haruhi novels from Little, Brown is either going to make or break the novel market.

Honestly, I doubt I'm going to watch this show, but all the grumbling about how it's a waste and how it's unoriginal is one of my pet peeves. If it's unsuccessful, it's going to go away. If it's successful and you don't like it, just shrug and don't give it a second thought.

I don't rush into the announcement topic for every beefcake action series that comes along, even though I've got as little interest for those as some of you seem to for this.

I guess our "wine and cheese" get about as old as these creativity-void series Japan keeps pumping out. The sad thing is that these shows are successful, otherwise Japan would have moved on years ago. I especially hate it when I see productions that actually try to be creative and do something that's actually different and that's not just an afterthought get bashed to hell by so many anime fans, yet tripe like this gets thousands of fansub downloads and multiple fansub groups subbing it. It's hard to move on as an anime fan without saying something when 90% of anime tends to be productions such as these. I understand full and well that I don't have to watch them, but it is slightly annoying to know that so many resources are going into shows like this when they could be going into something more worthwhile. Unfortunately stuff like this is making lots of money, and of course that's the only thing any business cares about. Moe moe moe. Harem harem harem. Romcom romcom romcom. *yawn*
