From ANN:

Quote:

When a human is marked to die, a faint gray line that is invisible to most appears around their neck. As time passes, that ring becomes darker and darker, until it is eventually black, and that person dies. Kita Michiru has an unusual gift, she posses "Shinigami eyes," which allow her to see these rings. When Michiru notices that two of the boys in her Class, Akatsuki Chika and Tachibana Shito not only have rings, but that they're jet black, they reveal to her that the were supposed to die in a tragic accident six months ago. With the help of the Zombie Loan loan office, they were given a second chance at life, should they be able to pay for their debt by doing the work of Shinigami and killing malicious zombies. They petition Michiru to assist them in their efforts, and she finds her everyday life changing dramatically.
Genre: Shounen, Fantasy, Action

Looks good to me. Plus it's also Peach-Pit work. :)

Is it just me or does the synopsis sound similar to Shakugan no Shana's? I think the idea of a ring being around their neck sounds slightly scarier than the torch thing, though.

Apart from that, it sounds similar to hundreds of other series out there, but as long as the execution's good, it's not as bad. I guess the fact that the story was created by Peach Pit will draw people to this. I expect "fanboy behaviour" to surround this *Looks at fourth cover of the manga*

Well, it's got something for the girls to. :heh:

/me revives an older topic. *.*;;

This series looks awesome. If anyone knows me, I love zombie movies, so this looks like it's gonna be a good show to watch.

"killing malicious zombies." >w<;; It makes me want to watch it now~

Somewhat, I noticed Kita Michiru resembles Miyuku (Lucky Star) in appearance, they both wear glasses :eyespin: But, then I suppose there are quite numbers of similar character design in other show, which mean zero originality in looks :mad:

orion 2007-05-19 08:05

She's a bishoujo/moe type and those guys are bishonen types. This is going to pull in the male and female audience big time imo.

No new trailer yet, huh? :sad:

All those except Inoue Kikuko and Kawakami Tomoko are supposed to be in the cast. Here's the ANN page, which includes lots of other good names: Morikawa Toshiyuki, Saitou Chiwa, Ueda Kana, Suwabe Junichi, Gotou Saori.

Besides Kuwashima-san, I'll be checking this show out because it is directed by Nishimori Akira, who directed both Hitohira and PetoPeto-san, both of which I liked a lot. The lead writer, Tomioka Atsuhiro, did Pumpkin Scissors and Trinity Blood, neither of which I know very well. I'm not much for monsters, so we'll see. I do think the director has a skillful hand, though.

the three main characters reminds me of the trio in both samurai champloo and fruits basket lol^^

Wow. I didn't think this was ever going to be animated. Peach-Pit has a strange choice in genre.

Wosho128 2007-06-23 14:02

From the trailer, I don't like the animation too well. I need to see more to judge whether I like it or not though. Otherwise, the premise seems interesting. I'll look forward to it.

I loved ep. 1. The OP has a good beat to it imo.

I hope that a group picks this one up. :)
