Wait....WHAT??? Really??!! So cool... I've wanted to read this for so long but I waited for Kodansha to someday publish this in physical form..(talk about a pipe dream when it comes to Kodansha, amirite? -.-)


But daaayuumm.... when Mugen no juunin's starting season ends, we get more Samura right outta the bat ^^ I like that--

Meh, At first I thought this looked really promising with the adult cast and cool character designs but I watched the PV and this looks like yet another dumb anime comedy with over the top reaction faces, yelling and the like... because, of course, we don't have enough of those Rolling Eyes

The main characters voice sounded really familiar, I looked Riho Sugiyama up and I've never seen her in anything. Is that just a voice type she has?

Uhh...yeah..well... Hiroaki Samura's newer works are pretty much divided between ultra-violent and rape-induced action stuff like Die Wergelder or oddball comedy with deep-digging references to Japanese underground musicians, retro console games and whatnot like Halcyon Lunch... so, unless you're a fan of the guy or the superb artstyle of his works, this might not be up to everyone's tastes. Still... any Samura series that gets animated, I'll get hyped about ^^

If you're not against reading from...uhh... online, you should check out his 1-2 volume short, Harukaze no Yukionna(sometimes written a bit differently), it's a historical series about a young noble and her servant getting mixed up into spying and KGB in 1930's Soviet Russia. Not for the queamish, though, as there's some hardcore scenes...

This is one of the better anime PV's I've seen. It looks nicely animated. Going to give it a shot.

Isn’t that exactly what it’s like to work as a radio personality?

Huh this looks fun. Surprised it’s made by the same guy who made Immortal.
