No kidding, great PV. If the animation quality is near that good in the series, and it's really that cute of a show, this is a winner.

Just a slight correction, Animate.tv started streaming the ToS OP on Friday (the 8th) but the official site didn't put any notice up until the 10th.

Also, it's going to be taken down at the end of the month.

Other than that, I've been watching it repeatedly and already preordered the first volume (Collector's Edition, of course. It's gotta match the previous four I bought). It's about time. Very Happy

I feel kinda creepy saying this, but I checked out the first episode of Hanamaru Kindergarten on CR and actually found it enjoyable. It wasn't just cute kids (mainly girls) doing cute things, it also focused on the teacher himself, a fresh out of college otaku-type working on his first job. If it's more than just the cutesy stuff I think it'll continue to be entertaining.

As long as its not disturbing or creepy in any way, I might give this series a chance.

Dragoneyes001: Do you mind expanding on what you said? I have a idea, but I hope its not as creepy as it could be.

Another concern is the moe factor. Too much focus on the moe aspect might be a little too weird/creepy as well.

I am not expecting it to be a clean as Yotsubo, but at the same time, nothing over the top in terms of creepy or disturbing.

The show itself is not really creepy at all, just that as a 34 year old male it's not really the kind of thing I expect to be watching/enjoying. I am a teacher, though, so I sort of have that going in my favor, only I teach college instead of kindergarten. What dragoneyes was referring to was that spoiler[the guy's sempai from high school married one of their teachers while she was still one of the teacher's students. She even referred to it as "love at first sight" and her husband/teacher agreed.] So that was definitely weird, though it looks to have turned out okay for them at least.

I don't think you're going to get away from the moe factor in this one, by the way. But at the same time it doesn't appear to be the main focus either. Well, not entirely at least.

I'm pretty sure that was all an extended joke at the guy's expense. He seems gullible like that.
