Well, it's that time again. Time to take over the world! Time for another set of anime previews. Not too many trailers are out that I know of, although I nabbed this one pretty early.

Title: はなまる幼稚園, Hanamaru Youchien, Hanamaru Kindergarten
Genre: Seinen, Comedy, slice of life
Airs: 01/10 25:30
Animation Studio: GAINAX  

Summary from MangaUpdates:
Anzu goes to a preschool with her friends, the shy Koume and the eccentric Hiiragi. Together, they try to gain Anzu attention from their male caretaker Tsuchida, though he is clearly more interested in the pretty Yamamoto who supervises the class next door.

Kenn's Comment:
I'm guessing that preschool and kindergarten are pretty much the same thing in Japan. That aside, I really like the manga. It's chock full of comedy, and the things the girls pull off to get Anzu some attention are both funny and cute. Now, I'm no lolicon, but those girls don't really act or speak their age. Anywho, quoting someone on MAL,

"GAINAX and Mizushima produce a kindergarten anime... sounds like using a sledgehammer to crack a nut."
^^" I suppose that analogy is fairly accurate. GAINAX brought us Evangelion, and more recently Gurren Lagann, while Mizushima brought us FMA and Gundam 00.
