I watched this last night already. It was a cut above the last couple 2.5 additions. Faintly reminiscent of mushi-shi, but not quite as deep.

I sort of remember this - it was on JManga's free rotation. I missed out on the beginning, but what I read of it was interesting.

Subbed! Well, I thought it would be, since it looks like all the dubbed ones have already made their way to Crunchyroll, but that makes me happy, since I was not very happy with the dubs they were producing. A radio theater style four mike dubbing session would seem to make a lot of sense for the Motion Comic format, because they can do a rough cut from the original art, slideshow style, for the voice actors in studio, then synchronize the transitions, inanimation and lip flaps to match the audio track.

I only took a peek, but like TheCoolAlchemist, I remember reading a few at Jmanga. I'm pretty sure I'll have this finished before the week is finished.

(And, BTW, I still think it would be a good gesture to provide premium access to the Manga2.5 titles to both anime and manga subscribers.)

I watched all five episodes today. This series is really good - beautiful design, moving stories. I hope more episodes are coming?

Could you get the original manga too? It'd be great to have more josei manga on the site!

Yeah, they should basically be trying to get every single Manga that got started on JManga, if the rights are available.
