After reading the first 2 chapters of the manga, my hype died down a little bit as there is no solid plot so far, non the less i'll still be watching it, and see how it goes!

Well ... PA Works are sure pulling out all stops on the scenery porn! It looks stunning! The characters are a lot more 'moe' (whatever that word means now!) than their usual designs, and somehow remind me of Shinsekai Yori.

Anyway looking forward to checking this out.

Oh man, that P.A. Works scenery porn!

I'm not quite sure what this is about, but it sure looks pretty. I love the eyes. The music is nice as well. Hopefully it delivers in the characters and plot department. I always get excited for P.A. Works' stuff and end up disappointed in some way (except for Uchouten Kazoku so far), so I really hope this doesn't do the same.

Not liking the character designs one bit. It's the most exaggerated moe designs PAW has done yet, and it reminds me strongly of Visual Arts Key (which I don't like). The world setting reminds me of Aria, though with Mari Okada on board I am 110% sure that we gonna get some sappy melodrama romance series... which I wouldn't have minded if it didn't revolve around 12 y.o. looking kids.

Not really looking forward to it though I will still watch since it's PAW and they always have good scenery porn.

I thought I was the only one who had Shinsekai yori flashbacks. I can't really put my finger on why, but Hanazawa Kana's involvement doesn't help.

Going by the vaguely creepy character designs (the manga is even worse), what I've read of the manga and Okada Mari doing the writing, I'm with acejem in that I expect this to be a sappy, sentimental moemoe romance with annoying characters, infuriating love triangles and a thin veneer of messages about ~growth~ and ~cultural acceptance~ to hold it together.
