Why You Should Be Excited

From the studio that brought us Angel Beats!, Another and The Eccentric Family comes Nagi no Asukara, an anime original production. When I saw the PV for this in that 28-minutes of previews, I was hooked by the accompanying song (which you can hear in both of the PV's above). So I went looking for more information. P.A. Works animation plus water seems like a win to me. I loved their work on Angel Beats! and The Eccentric Family, so I am looking forward to seeing what they can do with an original production like this. Crossing my fingers for CR to grab this one. Anyone else excited for this? I am, which is why I wanted to to get ahead of the curve and claim the topic myself.

Dat PA Works. I'm in.

Edit: I've also read some bits of the manga and liking the theme so far. The preview debuted a long time ago so I'm curious to see how this anime goes. PA Works' Eccentric Family has been impressive so far so my expectations are...

HIGH.

I hope it isn't a delay-cast for some reason. This was my #1 most anticipated title for the Fall (though I didn't actually recall which season it was, so I guess it was just general anticipation...) until Golden Time was announced. It is kind of funny, because I think PA Works and ASCII Media Works totally mishandled the publicity for it. It was originally announced over a year ago as a joint project between PA Works and Monthly Comic Dengeki Daioh. The promotional video for the project debuted at the magazine's 20th Anniversary Festival late last October. They announced the two lead seiyuu, the amazing and oft-cast Kana Hanazawa and the relative newcomer that had impressed everyone with his work on Tari Tari, Natsuki Hanae, the voice of Wien. I remember people gushing over the images and talking about how much they were looking forward to another Anime Original from the studio that brought us Hanasaku Iroha, Tari Tari, and Angel Beats, three of the finest anime originals in recent years.

(I would have included True Tears, but evidently that is a loose adaptation of a Visual Novel. I never knew that!)

Then it kind of fell off the map. I remembered it, but I didn't recall if they had ever said when it would be broadcast. By the time the Fall Anime Charts came out, I looked at it and thought, "Have I heard of that? Maybe... Oh yeah! It's that one!". When I saw a recent Japanese poll of most anticipated Fall series, it was horribly low on the list. I just think they pushed out the publicity too soon, because it was really for the Dengeki Doioh Anniversary event and not the anime, then they dropped the ball...

Oh well, at least CR got it and it has its chance to shine in an extremely crowded Fall lineup of potential 'Instant Classics' with an equal number of 'returning favorite' sequels. I just hope it is also being picked up by someone like Sentai Filmworks, though with their recent record, if Sentai picks it up and it is one that I really love, it will get a DVD, subtitle only release! (Ano Natsu de Matteru and Tari Tari anyone? In reality it isn't really the lack of dub that bothers me, but the lack of BluRay! Shows with amazing scenery porn deserve BluRay! If it happens I apologize in advance. It is a curse it seems... Okay, I really liked Mysterious Girlfriend X and it got a dub but... WAIT MGX got a dub and Tari Tari and Ano Natsu didn't? WTF Sentai! I mean!!! ARGGGGGHHHHHH!) [SLAP]

Sorry about that folks... my internal rant about the inequities and illogical choices of a certain anime publishing house spilled out into the forum... Back to talking about what used to be the title I most anticipated and is now somewhere between third and fifth on my anticipation list...

I still expect it to be stunningly gorgeous, with scenery porn that will make me drool like Urabe when Tsubaki rips up the picture of his middle school crush. (really?... Really?... REALLY????!!!!! MGX and NOT ... )[*KICK*] It looks like I need to close this out... I hope they get it soon and we don't have to wait like we did for Red Data Girl on Funimation...

I'm loving the show so far, but sadly I have a bad feeling about the character drama that might play out...

Other than that though, the show is pretty much flawless. There's lots of potential for the show to go wherever it wants, and the animation and atmosphere kind of fill you with a sense of wonder, like a lot of anime classics do. P. A. Works is pulling it off pretty well currently.
