Why fans of Hoshi no Samidare (Lucifer and the Biscuit Hammer) are hyped
Moreover, pretty much everyone thought an anime adaptation of Lucifer and the Biscuit Hammer would never happen. Most fans consider the manga is too weird for anime. Moreover, Lucifer and the Biscuit Hammer ended in August 2010 after a five-year run. So at first glance, there is no reason why a capitalistic fueled Anime Production Committee would greenlight an anime adaptation. Because there is no manga, novel, or original product to advertise with it anymore. Unlike Planet With, for example, a Mizukami story that started as an anime and is now continuing as a manga.
Furthermore, Satoshi Mizukami is heavily involved in the Lucifer and the Biscuit Hammer anime project. Writing the scripts himself. And rather than an official Twitter account made for the occasion, Mizukami announced the anime adaptation through his own Twitter.
