Since it's Trigger I'll be watching when it comes out but the plot isn't really doing it for me for the moment.

In case you weren't aware of it, this show is also parody. The entire concept is that a couple of American japanophiles create an absurdly bad anime based on poor understanding of Japanese culture, and a couple of unfortunate Japanese translators are forced to translate it into Japanese. The reason the plot sounds so crappy is that it is supposed to be crappy. Hopefully its absurdly bad enough that the intended humor comes through.

This has now intrigued me. Parodies can be hit or miss but I'm really enjoying Daimidaler right now so if its anything like that I'll definitely be watching this.

Source this and tell me information! because this Slice of Life better be closer to Fooly Cooly than Chunibyo!
Just imagine it! A slice of black kid in Japan life...maybe.

I just want more OK?

Also, if I remember correctly, Trigger is doing an adaptation this time.

Trigger doesn't just crap gold and diamonds, they dig for them.

Yo, I just learned this and wanted to quote incase you are up to updating the page information.

Apparently the Series Director will be Akira Amemiya, a long time Key Animator who doesn't seem to have any directed series as of yet.

Oh! Apparently Akira was the director of Inferno Cop AND several episodes of Kill la Kill INCLUDING Episode 3, my favorite.

This is amazing news to me.....might be amazing to some others.
