It looks better as a replacement for Eureka Seven AO, what do you think ?

No, I don't think so. Aniplex and Gangan likes their shounen shows to be on normal timeslots to attract a larger audience and to help advertise the magazine. Stuff like FMA and Soul Eater are more comparable imo.

As expected. At the risk of sounding like a broken record to certain people, this looks like it'd perfectly work as the next big Nichigo project but I wouldn't be too thrilled if it were to happen. For one, other rumored TV series seem like they'd work ever better there (hello Magi), and I'm not a huge fan of the manga either. Entertaining, but I reckon the pacing can be outright terrible at times. With that said, an anime adaptation would at least trim some completely useless pages, and BONES animation would definitely help it surpass the manga, if they get serious about it. (Though if it does get the Nichigo treatment, it's obviously not like they'd brush it off as a side-project...)

I don't really know that much about the manga. I checked out the first chapter the other day, and yeah it doesn't seem amazing or anything. But one thing I noticed is that it has a lot of explosion and water based scenes. BONES' effects animators will probably have a field day with this, so at least it'll be pretty to look at.

Aniplex looking to make another Ao no Exorcist or even better FMA? Manga doesn't seem that interesting.. but considering this is Bones and that means a high chance of Yutaka Nakamura doing some action scenes... I'm in.... Probably won't check out the manga so the show is fresh for me...

Guys, I'm curious about the genre this will fall to. (I didn't read the manga)

Terizent 2012-05-12 01:49

Yes! I love Zetsuen. It's influenced by (and quotes a lot from) Shakespeare's Hamlet and The Tempest.

Go read Spiral and Vampire Cross World, and you'll get the general idea on what the author is up to.

Though, Tempest does not have ridiculous abrupt turns like Spiral or Vampire Cross World. Its world concept is established clearly very early and the plot flow very smoothly.

It's a shounen action series.

shmaster 2012-05-12 02:57

I won't say action is a fitting word. Over 50% of volume 3 and 4 was spent on talking. Volume 5 is mostly love comedy and have little action.

That sounds like most shounen action manga really. They talk more than they fight, still considered the same genre! :P

I don't know what the problem is. It may come down to personal taste on whether people like the manga or not, but there are definitely worse things to adapt. I'm excited for it.

The manga is not gay, in fact one of the main characters has a girlfriend.

If you have to twisted, necrophiliac love comedy is closer to the truth.

i can tolerate that, its just that nowadays is weird that a not gay anime website shows only males in its front page.

I see. So any anime that has only has males in their initial website promo image is automatically gay until proven otherwise. I guess it also applies to the ones that have only girls? I have learnt something new today. :rolleyes:

pretty much, thats how it is nowadays, only exception in mecha animes.

DonQuigleone 2012-05-16 00:12

While I wouldn't say that all males on front page automatically means "gay", the way they're dressed, their poses, and the style they're drawn in, did make me think "Yaoi" when i saw the front page on the website. If the website showed the characters doing something, rather then fashionably posing, it would seem less "gay".
