I’m personally not excited for the anime adaptation, since I have read the first few chapters of the manga. I didn’t enjoy it and couldn’t get into it. It’s a brilliant idea, but it’s shounen not shoujo and I am really picky with shounen romance series. I might give the anime a shot, to see if it can change my mind.
