As long as the dark element from the manga is captured in the anime, then i'll be happy. Plus i hope they use the VA cast from the drama CD's.

i haven't read any off the manga but if it's done by xebec it can only mean one thing,utter-failure since xebec can't even keep content without adding their own awful content!

It finally got one huh? Nice! But, I'm not fond of the production company though.

Besides the usually "Don't assassinate the characters" and "Don't screw with the plot too much", what I want to see is-

1. Uncensored blood and gore.

2. Freaky dolls and bunnies.

3. Balance comedy with dark setting... Kuroshitsuji is one good example of that.


Any bonus would be like,

But then again... XEBEC?

Uh oh...

I was wondering when Pandora Hearts would get its turn to stand in the sun. It's one of the few major serials currently running in G-Fantasy that hasn't received the anime treatment. This is good news to me.

One thing I will be looknig forward to and hope it won't be one of the things they end up screwing is the sheer awesomeness of the gothic lolita 'feel' I get from the manga. This also includes wishes for some great victorian BGM tracks

Yeah i hope they choose the right composer for the job. While reading the manga, i can come up with quite a few who'd fit the job perfectly, though we'll have to wait and see who they go with.

Hopefully when the official site opens, so will information on which composer they've chosen.

They also did a loose adapation of To-LoverRu recently which didn't turn out as great as I hope. The new original material used in the anime wasn't great at all and they streched out single chapters for an entire episode adding filler that made it feel dragged out.

If Pandora Hearts anime is going to be 24/26 episodes then I have a bad feeling because the manga is currently only 6 volumes not enough material for them to use which means lots of filler their going to add...

Who was in the CD drama?

Half of me says yay since even though I havent read the manga yet I love the character design and its been on my to read list for a while. Other half is worried since as stated only 6 vols are out. Course Kuroshitsuji is only at 5 vols and the anime has been great.

We have Junko Minagawa, Azuma Sakamoto, Yukari Tamura, Katsuyuki Konishi etc. All very fitting for their roles --- especially Junko Minagawa as Oz.

Well goodness knows I approve of Junko Minagawa and Katsuyuki Konishi Yukari Tamura Im having trouble coping with as Elizabeth in KSS but I loved her as Rika in Higurashi. Im hoping they stick with the cd cast as well.

Just one question: This show/manga doesn't have fan-service, right?

With Xebec in charge, who knows?

(cast is wonderful)

Yukari Tamura and Yui Horie together is already enough reason for me.

A little fanservice can't hurt right?
