Count me among the watchers!

Mizuno 2010-03-17 15:56

I think this one will be the darkhorse of next season. :D

DangerMouse 2010-03-17 16:06

I hope this turns out good and that we get "good DEEN" and not "cheap DEEN", we haven't had a shinsengumi focused or even samurai series in ages (other than Champloo which isn't the same), I think the last one I saw was Peacemaker (and Kenshin). Wish it was a full 26.

I'm going to check it out since it's been so long since I've seen a series in this setting and for Ko Otani's music (according to the official site) and Atsuko Nakajima always does fantastic character designs like in Trinity Blood and You're Under Arrest.

One could argue Gintama but thats its own genre in itself :heh:

Kaoru Chujo 2010-03-17 16:17

This was intriguing, but now is a must. The official site has just posted the cast: Kuwashima Houko, Miki Shinichirou, Morikubo Showtaro, Toriumi Kousuke, Yoshino Hiroyuki, Usa Kouji, Ohkawa Tohru, et al.

I'm still not confident about the director. He is Yamasaka Osamu, who did Toward the Terra and Itazura na Kiss.

No lead writer is credited, but the story is credited to Otomate, the games-for-girls company. This appears to be their first foray into anime, as far as I can tell. There is already a Hakuouki PSP game. Here is a PV for the game.

I'm hoping for good Deen. Deen did Simoun, after all, which is basically my favorite anime. And Marimite. And Jigoku Shoujo. Of course, there is also Code-E....

DangerMouse 2010-03-17 18:21

Yeah and I'd also add the fantastic animation for Read or Die, and the good Kenshin OVA, and my memory of it is currently hazy but Getbackers was relatively decently animated too if I recall despite being like 52 episodes, been a while.
The two overtly cheaply-animated shows they let me down on that I always want to slap them for since they could have been more enjoyable with good animation are Samurai Deeper Kyo's rather nice art but mostly awful often non-existent actual animation and ofcourse the fun but infamously corner-cutting Rave Master.

Looks like a version of the game is getting a PS3 version in June as well.

Speaking of animation/art, the screens of the first episode in that section of the site look like at least potentially good DEEN until they show some actual animation or action.

Yeah, I haven't seen a lot of it yet, but can it even be classified with just a genre or two lol.

Wow, this sure sealed the deal for me! Terra was one of the best sci-fi drama I had watched in recent years with excellent pacing and wonderful character development. Itazura na Kiss, despite having no ending in the manga was also done extremely well, especially towards the end.

I feel disappointed as well that this would be only 13 episodes but maybe due to this, there will be a lot of intense moments.

I'm glad to hear this. I've heard praise for Terra, but haven't got far into it yet. Thanks for encouraging me to have another look. Itazura disappointed me, but perhaps that was the "I've read the manga and it's not the same" effect. I did like the latter episodes better. Really, I just hated the guy until then, so it was hard for me.

DJLowrider 2010-03-18 19:22

Wow, yeah definitely giving this series a chance this spring. The premise alone had me intrigued. The character designs look great too. But top it off with Ohkawa Toru and Kuwashima Houko? I'm sold. DEEN, do not screw up my Shinsengumi.

Irkalla 2010-03-19 16:50

Count me in for this too.I have played the game and it was fun. I don't really care if the anime will have a plot or not, I'm just gonna watch it for the fanservice anyway :heh: Any info about the seiyus?

To quote my own earlier post: "The official site has just posted the cast: Kuwashima Houko, Miki Shinichirou, Morikubo Showtaro, Toriumi Kousuke, Yoshino Hiroyuki, Usa Kouji, Ohkawa Tohru, et al."

The full list is now on ANN.

I'm hopeful this one will turn out well. It doesn't have to be amazing, just not stupid, with very cool period animation. The artwork for this shows great potential, but Deeper Kyo was a huge let-down.

Haohmaru 2010-03-23 19:49

I really like the art in the first post and the character designs are bad either. I wonder if Deen can pull it off. So has anyone read the manga? Is it action oriented or what?

Foreshadow 2010-03-23 21:19

The Art has me already :p. Looking forward to this, I love historical fiction.

OkamiNoKaze 2010-03-25 10:52

This show looks really cool, I'm glad there's finally a thread on it.

It looks awesome!...Let's hope Studio Deen will keep up the quality for the actual episodes.

Interesting. Although it really only shows character designs. There was one nice shot of a tower behind falling snow(?) in the moonlight. The brief sword fighting scene was handled kind of abstractly, but that was probably because it was merely promo material showing two opposing characters instead of a real fight.

DangerMouse 2010-03-28 15:59

Nice first look at some footage and the art, character designs and color style is looking very nice. Looks like some of the OP in there as well with the shots of the characters.

That's true, it's hard to tell.
