Like the title says, it know appears that KyoAni’s Munto TV series, aka Sora o Miageru Shoujo no Hitomi ni Utsuru Sekai, will be starting January 14 and not in the spring. Since I haven’t seen many previews, including my own, mention this show and because this will be KyoAni’s first original tv series, I thought I should go more in-depth.
One of the first things that entered my mind when I realized this show was going to air in the winter season was this will mark the first time that KyoAni is doing two television shows at the same time. At this fact might bode well for those fans, including myself, that are waiting for a second season of Haruhi and more Full Metal Panic.

The original OVAs are the only thing of Kyoto Animation that I haven’t seen. My only knowledge of the OVAs come from this awesome AMV (follow the link to download it and watch it below).
It seems like it could be a very interesting show and I’d imagine that Kyoto Animation will work hard to make sure that it’s first original TV series will be a success. And lastly the pictures where taken from the official website.
