As an ice hockey fan this just looks really really bad. I always hope I'm wrong when I get these feelings but I'm usually right.

Why are they dressed up like idols? Shocked

We have yet to see a full-fledged trailer of them in an ice hockey match.so I'd imagine they're pulling an Uma Musume with its seemingly idol elements but more sport action.

Love Live Hockey Idol Project

The character designs screams idols and Love Live, other than that, it could turn out ok, but I know most people aren't going to be watching this for the hockey.

The character design reminds me of BanG Dream.

I've seen 2 very short trailers of this one and neither of them had any sound whatsoever. First I thought it's my computer but then I checked other videos and there were no problems. Otherwise the animation looked okay. I hope that doesn't spell any trouble, because I'm actually interested in this one.

Same designer actually.

EDIT: I should clarify, when I said 'other videos', what I meant are completely unrelated videos on Youtube

While I am cautiously excited for the series, at least it is getting a bit of attention.

It is unlikely to be Cramer, but I will give it a shot when it airs.

A cute girls playing hockey anime could be great, but if they're going to cram idol aspects into it this definitely isn't going to be.

Add in Love Live.
Hell...
Manaka = Honoka/Chika
Yu = Umi
Ayaka = Ako
Riko = Hagumi
Naomi = Rimi
Kaoruko = Saya

Mami is the only one of the main 7 I cant pin down (kinda looks Love Live-ish), but Juri is a dead ringer for Moca, maybe with shorter hair

That was my thought. The designs are kind of generic, imo. Especially since Manaka is basically a dead ringer for Honoka or Chika.
I'd love a proper "girls do ice hockey" anime, but I don't know if this will be it.

I can only forgive those character designs in an ice hockey anime if they're also going to include fights.

they kinda arent. Generic I would accept. Seeing the promo pic I dead set thought it was a Love Live collab, especially with their outfits and way too many similarities
