KyoAni is adapting Kobayashi-san Chi no Meidoragon
Why should this be a big deal? Check out the manga tags:
KyoAni is adapting a YURI manga, guys.
Now, I’ve actually been reading this manga before the announcement, and it’s more light slice-of-life stuff (surprise surprise, it’s KyoAni, after all). Main point, though, is that while the interactions are less romantic and mostly cutesy stuff, from what I’ve read so far, if KyoAni will stick to certain manga events, you’ll have something to look forward to with one of Tohru’s (the dragon) inner musings.
But I’m having fun reading this, so I’m definitely looking forward to the series next year.
Now is it coincidence that this is what they’re showing this adaptation in the season following Hibike! Euphonium 2? I’ll leave that for you to decide. (Just had to throw that in there, hahaha)
