I'm looking forward to this. It's easily my favorite Light Novel series, although I can't entirely say why. I feel that some of the others I've read are much more well-written, but this one just always keeps me glued. It's the only series I've read, where I have literally read every volume at least 4 or 5 times. I really want the anime to be 24 episodes and cover a lot, but I'm betting it's only going to cover the first two or three volumes. Which is a shame, because the story really starts to pick up around volume 5 or 6.
