Anime | Trailer 1 download | Trailer 2 link
Like @angelx03 and Zemial99 (who both sent me the chuchu link), I was surprised at how well animated this is. I knew it was going to be decent, as the animation team has also worked with Strawberry Panic. However, based on the kind of videos Fuguriya has made in the past, I was convinced the production would cut some corners.
Fortunately, the animation in the trailer looks pristine. Consider the short snapshot of a scene at 0:52. The way the body moves in response to outside pressure is just so detailed and so sensual. It really speaks to how fluid the anime is going to be. Furthermore, Reo and Mai are gorgeous. Peko’s designs have not been butchered and the girls are just as adorable as they are in the visual novel. They do look a bit more slender though, which is a bit reminiscent of the girls of Strawberry Panic. I actually really love that petite touch.
Several scenes from the trailer indicate that the anime is most likely going to follow closely the visual novel, Anata to Koibito Tsunagi (Hanabira 3). The sex acts in the nurse’s office and at Mai’s place correspond to events from the visual novel. Some scenes even remind me of the CGs. I am not sure what I think of this. On the one hand, I appreciate that the anime is canonical to Reo and Mai’s story. On the other, it is always nice to see something new. Of course, there is also the possibility that the anime will include more than the visual novel, or that it will be an alternate retelling, which reveals yet another side to this sweet romance.
If this anime adaptation does well, more will probably come, especially with the rise of yuri in anime in general. According to AXYPB, the pre-order sales for Anata to Koibito Tsunagi on Getchu have beaten out even the upcoming Blu-Ray volumes of Angel Beats! and Bakemonogatari. I am optimistic about more yuri anime in the future from either Fuguriya or chuchu.
