I haven’t watched the whole first episode yet but I took a peek at it and the art reminds me of Honey and Clover very much :), that alone made the series gain big points with me. And after reading the synopsis I’m looking forward to episode 1 even more; in fact, I’m considering checking out the J-drama as well. ^_^

Wonderful episode! I’m sold on this series. :) Since Ushio from Clannad, I can’t remember another girl who has captivated my heart as Rin did in this episode. Rin was the star of this episode in my opinion, great character that I’m very anxious to know more about.
Rin is such an adorable yet complex character at the same time and one of the things I’m looking forward the most in this anime is how Rin is going to positively affect Dai-chan’s life and vice versa, how Dai-chan is going to positively affect Rin’s life. Yes, raising Rin isn’t going to be a walk in the part, but I think doing that is going to be the best experience that has happened to Dai-chan in his life. :)
I’m so looking forward to the next episode!
