Full series this time, 12 episodes.

A-Channel

Light ecchi.


Subbed on Hulu for free- http://www.hulu.com/a-channel


After FMA and nearing the end I figured I'd swing back to a short and basic school comedy.


A-Channel is quite amusing, but overall very mild. I'd say it's pretty similar to Yuru Yuri. Interesting characters, some good comedy, and very easy to watch.

The animation is clean and the designs are pleasant to the eye.


As for Digimon connections.... I found exactly one. The actress who plays Mirai in Re:Digitize and Cyber Sleuth is one of the teachers in A-Channel.

I also saw this. It's cute. Very Lucky Star. There's a song each ep for some reason but hey, the characters are fun. A friend of mine on Twitter loves the small girl Tohru. That character has a single target sexual thing with one of the other characters. Its' really cute.

Finished it last night. It's a fun little series, though, as Marc said, rather basic. It did remind me of Yuru Yuri, and a little bit of Azumanga Daioh (but maybe that was just the one creepy male teacher). I noticed a few oddities about the show., such as the exceptionally chibified art style and the unique insert song for each episode. I also noticed that the opening showed the album of the artist who sang the opening song, which is something I've never seen before. Was the show some kind of vehicle for music (to a greater degree than others)?

I take it that the show is finished? I see that there was an OVA, but unfortunately I was unable to watch it.

No new anime season has been announced for A-Channel.

The original manga is still running.

A spinoff has also been running since 2012.

There was the 2 episode OVA series in 2012, and each home video release of the original series came with a few minisodes.
