Aoi Hana Airing Date Announced and Website Revamped!!

Whoohoo! ^_^ Aoi Hana's airing on Wednesday July 1st!!! Only 3 days after my b-day! ^.^ I'm glad it's airing a.s.a.p.!

I found the date on the Aoi Hana anime website, which has been completely renovated with more anime character design images throughout the site. If you wait a minute after arriving at the main page, the flash images will end with a cute picture of Fumi, Yasuko, Akira, and Kyouko on a path together, with Fumi blushing at Yasuko. ^^ One of the links even leads to a super-cute relationship chart!

There is also a page where it looks like there are going to be a lot of Aoi Hana wallpapers posted, although there's only one so far of Fumi and Akira. (Which is currently on my desktop. :) ) Even with all of the updated material on the site, there's a lot more "Coming soon."

According to another page on the site, Aoi Hana's opening theme is going to be "Aoi Hana" (how appropriate ^^;;) by Kukikodan and the ending theme is going to be "Senteforia" by Ceui.

I'm dyyyying to see this show!!! It's so close, yet so far away...

I'm excited about the Aoi Hana anime too.

By the way, you may find this interesting if you haven't read it yet.

Thanks for the article! ^^ It was very interesting.

It's true that, like the article pointed out, as an anime fan I used to envision the anime industry as a lucrative, creative utopia for freethinking animators and writers, but the reality is unfortunately very different.

And I had no idea that such a low ratio of anime productions actually turn a profit. o_o (1 in 10??)

I also wonder how production committees select which manga have enough marketability to viably turn a profit in animated form, considering that most of them are niche titles (like Aoi Hana) and many of them range from mediocre to terrible (*cough*Akikan*cough*).

Here's hoping that the Aoi Hana and Sasameki Koto anime series will be profitable enough to encourage studios to adapt more good yuri titles. Although...it still bothers me to think about the conditions that the people who create anime in general have to work under.
