Kana Hanazawa as the lead role in this huh? The premise of this sounds funny although I'm not very impressed by the PV. The diverse cast of characters looks like it could be fun though.

Just do as I do, blame that 240p. I mean seriously, 240p? On a widescreen, high-resolution monitor, it was mostly pixelated and hard to discern some moments in the video.

I do like that reality-show premise.

Well this should be a relatively short series then, we already know Kana Hanazawa is the Queen (of Seiyuu's). Wink

Still the PV looked pretty cool and the premise sounds interesting or at least good for a chuckle. I'd say the siblings individual powers give the impression of being quite simple and restrained, but could be used to good affect.

Admittedly I hadn't heard anything about this upcoming anime adaptation till now, but I'm eager to see what it's like. Regardless of how Castle Town Dandelion actually turns out, it appears to be worth a watch in the very least.

Honestly though with KanaHana and Ai Kayano in the cast I don't really need much of an incentive to check it out.

Hm, the female to guy ratio is 3:1 huh. Not sure how well this will do. Slapstick comedies usually are hit or miss.

This seems like it could be a very interesting series. The idea has a lot of merit, and ever since Tiger and Bunny, I feel extremely confident giving the benefit of the doubt to series that use reality shows as a basis.

The only thing that I'm worried about here is the possibility that the comedy may fall flat very quickly. While I'm definitely going to give this series a go (it's been a while since I watched a series where Kana Hanazawa was the lead after all) I'm hoping that it remains enjoyable. Many of the 4-koma series that get adapted are quite fun after all (Yamada's First Time, Seitokai Yakuindomo and Azumanga Daioh are prime examples) and if this one fails, it would be a real disappointment.
