Speculation as to the identity of Kyoto Animation’s upcoming mystery anime continues to rage, with ardent Photoshoppists having managed to convincingly ram the bodies of Full Metal Panic’s heroes into the provided silhouettes, convincing many that they may yet be spared a hot male high school swimming team anime.

Whether sexy swimmers or FMP, it seems at least some fans will be happy – as long as it is not another season of Tamako Market…


The full announcement is due on the 26th.

    If it is FMP, it would have meme that rivals gajin 4 komas.

    If it is FMP!, my hope in the anime industry will be returned, and to this blog too.

    You forget the chances of it being absolutely horrible, ruining FMP and anime for all least for all the creepy otaku. Me, I hope it will be FMP but I don't really mind if it's not... If it was continuation of fumoffu however, then I'd cry manly tears...

    sadly i think this is more likely...Even if they continued fumoffu i feel like they would probably just fuck it up at this point

    If KyoAni wants to troll they could make another FMP spinoff with homoerotic swim boys.

    Even if it is, I'd like to see it. Just imagine. KyoAni's modern high end animation/effects on an Action Anime such as FMP. This would be so awesome. They're totally wasting their talent on moeblobs occasionally throwing in some scenes showing their awesomeness. Like the imaginary fighting scenes in Chuunibyou. Those looked so blissfully eyegasmic! But a moeblob just doesn't have that many of those.

    I don't know. Hirano isn't really going to be doing voice acting anymore, is she? Could people really handle a different voice for Haruhi? I don't know.

    Uh, unless this anon has missed something, she can appear in sequels which is why ZKC: The Unlimited featured her character multiple times.

    I won't mind changing Haruhi's seiyu if Reanimedia is going to make russian dub. Tanya was better Haruhi than Aya.
    Maybe, new seiyu will be as good, and I won't mind her even if there will be no RA dub.

    Episode 9. If you plan on watching any other episodes, watch this one. Well, you do need a little background info though.

    Compared to KyoAni's recent animes (Hyouka, Chuunibyou), It's just plain boring.

    The weakest "cutesy" KyoAni anime yet. I can boldly say it's even weaker than K-On.

    Whatever makes a yen for them is better chances of more Animation coming out on TV and Blu-ray.

    Tamako Market is bad? In what way? It's just a cute and funny slice of life show, that's all it was trying to be, and it did that pretty damn decently in my opinion. Just because it's not your kind of humor doesn't mean the show is automatically a bad show.

    Anyway, if this did indeed turn out to be more FMP (which it probably won't), that would be amazingly awesome.

    I won't say Tamako Market was bad....but it seriously wasn't particulary good either. It has it's fans.

    But, it has alot less fans than any Kyoani show in recent years.

    It has quite a few people who down right dislike it (like me).

    I watched 4 episodes before I gave up on it. I don't want those precious minutes of my life I spent watching it back.....but I seriously didn't want to waste anymore.

    I am a little curious to see what the disc sales of it are, as compared to say, any of there previous 3 shows before it.

    @Anon 04:55 who says that I watch solely for the humor?

    Being a Slice of Life doesn't excuse you from the story. I'm calling it bad, because it's not on par with KyoAni's standard. Compared to recent past KyoAni anime like Hyouka and Chuunibyou, Tamako Market IS bad. To be harsh it fails to be a good Slice of life.

    Not like Hyouka, which was a detective type anime, and Chuunibyou which has great drama, Tamako can't even focus. It's not even random slice of life, like Lucky Star. It tries to have a plot but never seem to fully understand which plot to take. Remember where Dera chooses a Bride and then the Prince, introduced at the start and forgotten till the latest episodes.

    According to MAL alone, it has the weakest rating from all other recent KyoAni animes

    Going with Bluray/DVD sales at 18th-25th of March, the 1st volume only ranked 29th at 617 projected sales (DVD), while Chuunibyou the 4th Volume ranked at 8th with 10,933 (bluray) and 1522 (DVD)

    TAMAKO MARKET is BAD by KyoAni's Standard.

    It's mainly because I thought that K-On is also sort of weak. The 1st season was okay, but by the 2nd it became a chore to me to finish.

    ... I don't think that's such a bold thing to say. Tamako Market was a genuinely bad series. I guess someone might think it's great if their only criteria for greatness in an anime is good animation and cute characters to appease their loli fetishes.

    FMP? oh wait, i know, they're gonna make a Trailer for FMP, one each year.
    And then at the end of the 8th trailer, we're going to see a note from kyoani: "ENDLESS TRAILER"

    Please let it be FMP. The anime desperately needs to be continued. A full finish to the series in KyoAni animation is what it deserves.
