Looking forward to it then.

I've been reading the manga and it's really twisted with psychological elements. It's more than just the typical romance but a dark mind twist throughout the series.

An entertaining read though definitely especially late @ night Twisted Evil

It is not a romance at all, imo. There are people in love but it doesn't feel like a romance at all. It's juicy, twisted, and crude. And I love it.

They turned this into an anime already? I must have missed the news. The manga was announced like months ago. Be interesting to see. I guess I'll have something else to watch after Mysterious Girlfriend X. More twisted love stories.

Twisted is right! In fact, it's got a mean streak in it and I'm tense every time I turn the page. Can't wait to see how faithful it will be. Now if they ever made an anime based on Sundome....ahhhh.... Twisted Evil

Cruchyroll reported that the adaptation would be somewhat liberal, and more so than the director typically works on. That's a bit worrying, because it sounds like the dudes with money were the ones who didn't want a faithful adaptation, which suggests a significant amount of edge-loss.

That's disappointing. I'm much less keen on the idea now.

In a moment of weakness, he finds and takes home the gym clothes belonging to sweet, pretty Nanako Saeki on whom he has a major crush.

Wow, this is just creepy.

And that's just like the least creepiest part of the manga. Trust me.

Are you familiar with the term "reverse raep". Cause you're in for something enlightening.

From what we have read about this... The art direction is going to be a bit different. But not so much the content. That said the series is just entering it's third and final arc (possibly two more volumes to go from this monthly series). So who knows how the anime will end relative to the manga.
