I watched the first 10 episodes of the anime and had to drop it along with all the other anime I was following as I got too busy. The production quality was superb. The story is strange though. I don’t quite get it but I think I’ll try to marathon the episodes when they’re done with it. It has interesting ideas and characters. The character designs are created by BL mangaka, Hoshino Lily 星野 リリィ.
What do you think of the anime? It does seem rather popular if the amount of goods available for preorder and on sale is a good indication.
