I really this show it was one of the best last year. So I am super duper excited about season 2! I just can’t wait for more doggy style action. The main character was very likeable and made me jelous. I hope that season 2 develops more into the main character’s back story. I also want to see more loli-boobage.

#PersonOfInterest
Miyano Mamoru! After his performance in Stiens;Gate, I just can’t get enough of his sexy ass! I can’t wait for his cellphone to get hacked.

The “love and teen pentagonal comedy” follows the strange phenomena at the Yamahoshi Academy’s Culture Club, starting with the five male and female club members switching bodies with each other.

The body switch thing is kind of weird; it just seems to come up at random moments and the time spent in the other person’s body fluctuates in time. The trailers have a bit more of a dramatic feel to them and there is a fall-off-the-bridge moment, so I’m wondering exactly what dramatic & supernatural moments there will be in a show that’s primarily labeled as a s’life-comedy. As for the main characters of the series, I’m not quite feeling the characters even with a seiyuu cast that includes Miyuki Sawashiro and Aki Toyosaki.

#PersonOfInterest
Yukiko Horiguchi, original character designer. When I first saw the characters, the K-On! girls popped into my head. Sure enough, these characters are the work of Horiguchi whose done K-On! and Lucky Star.

If there is one thing I am most excited about, it is seeing how big the boobs get in season 2. It seemed like the boobs kept getting bigger and bigger as the season went on, so I can only expect for mamonth sized ones by the end of season 2. The action was great too. The animation was fluid and it kept the action looking great.

Fukuyama Jun! Another sexy morsel I want to get my hands on. I only wish that when their phones do get hacked that they are in somekind of sexual position together! <3

#Thoughts
I know what you are thinking, "a gender bending Oda Nobunaga series?! How Original!" It seems like these kind of series are a dime a dozen these days, which is why I am not too excited about this anime. Plus from the trailer I don’t see a whole lot of ecchiness from it. I mean come on, show us some Nobunaga boobs. It does look like there will be quite a bit of action though. This series might be worth watching if it keeps the action going.

The thing that makes me a little bit interested in the anime is that it is being co-produced by Madhouse. It seems like Madhouse will put their hands on anything now adays, but that does at least make me interested in it.

Fun Fact: This is yet another anime based off of a fantasy light novel series.

#StudioOfInterest
The thing I am most interested in is Studio Gokumi. It has only been producing its own anime for about a year now and most of them have been loli-harem type anime. It is no surprise that this is another Harem anime, but I want to see how they handle an action series. Although, that could be why they teamed up with Madhouse, which is a good choice for action.

Unfortunately, the only other pieces of info I can share is that it’s based off a Light Novel and that Tatsuya Yoshihara is making a directorial debut with this. The cover art for the LN looks pretty cool and the premise is pretty intriguing.

Before I say anything, I want to make the point that I don’t think this anime will air for the summer season. There is always that title that we cover that seems to be premature on all the lists. I believe this is one of those.

I will say I am interested in this anime. It looks like it will be kind of a funny series. Something about the premise makes me think it will be kind of a dark comedy and those are rare to find, but can be quite funny.
