Not to sound like a sicko. Now, I'm even more interested in the anime.

All nice and twisted. Still raises a major question though: when is this baby airing?

@Dream:

Oct. 10. Still no word on what company will legally stream it.

Looks like Nico Nico Dougo will be streaming it whenever it does premiere and the series never aired yesterday from what I'm digging up.

There's quite a bit of speculation among folks on MAL and ANN over why it hasn't aired, varying from this being a short series or Studio Deen having issues securing a TV network that could air the series thanks to its twisted content.

munch munch...

Hmm now that I get a look at the art style, it kind of looks like a /d/ visual novel or hentai manga that got turned into an anime. Uhh.. maybe like School Days meets This isn't a Zombie meets Yosuga no Sora??? Except with darker themes? I'm still pretty excited to see how much this pushes the boundaries, if it does at all.

There are about 29 chapters released in the Comic Earth Star Magazine. Haven't read the manga, but I hope the anime has a good pacing.

@AURON570:

Let's throw in some incest cannibalism in the mix like Koi Kaze or Oreimo. I haven't watched Koi Kaze or Clannad yet.

@Marshal Victory:

I can't find it either. I checked the illegal sites. That's strange. The Pupa Twitter didn't post any new updates. I checked the official site in Google Chrome.

Check the video. It's the same trailer but with annotations.

@takashichea: It could be Studio Deen is havieng production problems.Have read some gripes about Gifu Dodo!! Kanetsugu and Keiji

an sub par or slopy animation.Can not testify to that my self ,just could not get past the pilot.As a general rule tho i liked their animation.

An ya it could be some second thoughts an edits to please a network.Then again it could be a shart series but from what i read 13 episodes were expected.

Side note just got done watchign Sleepy Hallow on hulu an conquest/pestilence horsman is in samuria type banded armor.

@Marshal Victory: @Dream:

If you were getting anxious for Pupa, it’s certainly not the day to be you as an interview in the 16th volume of “VoiceGirls” magazine reveals the animation is actually only a five-minute short series.

Evidently, Studio DEEN really was too busy with MeganeBu to make anything out of imouto horror story Pupa – no wonder it looked so well-animated in PVs, the previews are practically as long as the series itself. A full-length manga with substantial story contents is being compressed into an anime of only five minutes an episode – what a sad reality. If there’s any salvation in the world, maybe these five minutes will eventually see a proper series. The idea didn’t work too well for Senyu or Morita-san though…

@takashichea: Did some one at studio DEEN lose their mind or some key people were replaced. They genraly do good job on animaiton to an they chose a glasses fetish show suposedly aimed a girls?Of late their animation quality has droped an now i worry about the studio.

Hmm on deepr thought i can see why they would go this route.They are thinking more would be drawn to the MeganeBu show.Did the gender demografic in anime change or something?Cause market share might be the reason behind it.Cant be they were creepeed out by the story contnet i seen a few episodes of Gifu Dodo!! Kanetsugu and Keiji ..ohhh now i see the a trend in what they are wanting to do now.

@Marshal Victory:

Meganebu, Rock Lee, and possibly Watamote could have benefit from being 5 minute series.

Forgot to include Auron570:

@AURON570:

Look at the comment above Marshall for info about Pupa.
