Translation (from another forum):

Kazuki: This world is overflowing with connections. But those connections disappear so easily.
Text: I want to connect, but I cant.
Kazuki: I have three rules in life. I dont need anything else.
Toi: I'll stab it. You and I arent all that different.
Enta: We have connections that can't be cut so easily!
Keppi: From now, you will become a kappa and I'll want you to steal the shirikodama of zombies for me.
Trio: Whaaaat?!
Mabu: Exploit...
Reo: ...desire.
Both: MILKING DESIRE!
Zombie: Cardboard...
Keppi: Well then, let's move right onto connecting in sarazanmai.
Mabu: It seems someone wants to get in the way.
Text: Really? Boxes are flying through the sky.
Reo: Human beings sure are foolish.
Keppi: In other words, you may be alive, but you're dead.
Text: Even if you connect
Toi: I won't give in to you.
Enta: That's all I want.
Kazuki: I refuse to be unable to connect to them! [singular them, no gender specified]
Text: Even if you lose sight of it
Trio: SARAZANMAI
Text: Do not let go, desire is your life.
Kazuki: This time, I must protect this connection.

It's the same animation team as for Penguindrum, so it's not surprising that it's the same general look & feel. Slightly disappointed that the style of animation over lightly filtered photographs from the early teasers hasn't carried over.

I am excited for this. The only thing I'm worried about is that MAPPA is doing it. Seeing how they have made shadow the brilliant Banana Fish in its anime incarnation, I fear Sarazanmai is gonna turn out to be more emo boys melodrama than genuine drama like Utena.

I can't believe it's already been 4 years since Yuri Kuma Arashi. Sure, last year we had Shoujo Kageki Revue Starlight, which is probably the most Ikuhara-like thing the man hasn't worked on himself in quite a while.

I just learned that Sarazanmai is going to have just 11 episodes, as most Noitamina series do. That doesn't exactly fill me with confidence after seeing Yuri Kuma Arashi waste its potential by not developing enough its characters in 12 episodes. And judging by the synopsis and the PVs it looks like Sarazanmai is attempting to do a lot more in a single cour! In Ikuhara we trust!

Had no idea the episode count was 11. Interesting...
It might be really fast paced.

Couldn't help noticing a certain similarity to SHAFT's work in the PV, especially to images from the film Fireworks.
And turns out Nobuyuki Takeuchi was involved in both projects. Unless it's a different guy with the same name...

It is the same Takeuchi; he also worked with Ikuhara on both Penguindrum and YuriBear when those had outbreaks of IKEA architecture too.

Didn't know that! I have seen Yurikuma though and thinking back now I can see it.

As is the norm, Crunchyroll isn't bringing it to my region. ;_;

Isn't there that one pop idol girl character?

There are some female family members, but they're only slightly more relevant than the boys in any magical girl's class at school.

Sara, the idol, has been shown with a kappa form, similar to Keppi's, and there are oblique hints about things in general not being as they seem (mentions of otters, which had a selkie-like niche in classical Japanese folklore). That is, except when Sara is actually one of the boys in crossplay.

Mostly, however, it's cute boys doing butt stuff.

∆ In any case, I'm excited.
Though I don't know yet when I 'll see it.

Well, having seen the first episode, I already like it more than the lesbian bear show. Still concerned with the tiny number of episodes, but maybe Yuri Kuma taught Ikuhara something about dealing with less time.

And the animation is gorgeous so, even if isn't has good as Utena or Penguindrum it'll at least be pretty to watch.
