[Last update: 01/23/10 - ADDED PV]
The October issue of Hakusensha’s Monthly LaLa magazine will announce on Monday that a television anime adaptation of Hiro Fujiwara’s Kaichou wa Maid-sama! shōjo manga has been green-lit. The romantic comedy centers on the student council head named Misaki Ayuzawa who despises the mostly male, slovenly population at her school, which was once an all-boys school. However, Misaki’s most handsome schoolmate just discovered her secret — that she works afterschool at a maid café. Tokyopop is publishing the second volume of the manga this month under the Maid Sama! title.
*spasms* OH MY GOD I’M FREAKING HAPPY RIGHT NOW!!! mg: We can see this coming, having an adaptation because of its popularity ^^. And I’m just happy and lucky that my anime adaptations wishlist is getting granted one by one!!! Kyaaaaaaa!!! Misaki and HAWT Usui will finally be animated!!!! I can’t wait for more announcements!!!
OMG I’M JUST SPAZZING WITH EXCITEMENT RIGHT NOW TBH! I am so amused xDD. So yep, that’s all for the announcement~ Excuse me while I celebrate more and SQUEE!!~ <33
.: UPDATES (pre-show impression may change now) :.
Animation Production - J.C. Staff
Unfortunately, it isn’t BONES… but we have JC Staff to animate it. JC Staff is behind some popular anime like Shakugan no Shana, ToraDora!, Hayate no Gotoku (lol @ all the Rie Kugimiya-ness xD) and besides those, they are also under Nodame Cantabile, Honey & Clover, and many more.
Well, JC Staff could be a hit or a miss, but that won’t stop my anticipation for this one ^^. They better rock this one! *happily waits for Spring 2010*

First Look on the Chara Design:
The official website revealed how would the anime counterparts of Misaki and Usui on the upcoming Spring 2010 anime adaptation of shoujo manga Kaichou wa Maid-sama! JC Staff is the one that will be behind it and now we’re getting a glimpse. Uhmm… it’s horrible tbh. but it’s pretty much expected since shoujo manga character designs is quite hard to be adapted into anime. Blergh, still looks horrendous. Hope they’ll fix it before the PV comes out.
Sad news… they are not carrying over the Drama CD seiyuus, instead we have a new bunch (no more Rie Tanaka and TomoSugi T^T) but I think it’s still interesting, because we’ll be having new-er names and it’s fun when both leads already worked together before… OIC THE SEIKEN NO BLACKSMITH-NESS
Ayumi Fujimura (Cecily) – Misaki
Nobuhiko Okamoto (Luke) – Usui
Hiromi Igarashi – Aoi
Aki Toyosaki – Satsuki
Kana Asumi – Honoka
Kana Ueda – Subaru
Mariya Ise – Erika
Well after watching the PV, I think the character designs doesn’t look too horrible unlike on the poster. I’m still hoping JC Staff won’t screw up this one!
