Series Summary from Fate:
During the second half of the 19th century, Europe became intrigued by the Japanese culture. A Japanese girl named Yune travels to France, where she started working in the lower parts of a town in Paris at a craft store called Enseignes du Roy. She and the store owner named Claude communicate with each other in order to get over their cultural differences. This is the story of Yune's stay in Paris.
Kenn's Comment: Before anyone says anything, no this is not related to Gosick. The two series share the same artist (Gosick's novels are illustrated by the mangaka of this), and storywise, they're worlds apart. 

Now that that's out of the way, this should be a fun trip. It's likely going to have a very calm feel to it, with the occasional emotional parts. It'll be interesting to see how they handle the French and language differences. The seiyuu that plays Yune is fairly new, with her earliest role in a Hiyokoi special as a side character (Misa). She's got a good voice though, as she also played Kanon in 神のみぞ知るセカイ (The World God Only Knows).

I've got fairly high hopes for this one. Looking forward to it.
