Most of those are from El Cazador de la Bruja, but they are cute alright.

If you don't mind, refresh my memory. I recall

@Mentar: I really want to click on that spoiler but I guess it is better not to.

It's still a long wait... Based on the animation and character designs, I have high expectations of this anime, definitely!!

I agree about Sawashiro Miyuki, but I also think Takagaki Ayahi (Ein) is terrific. She really gave us a lot as Noe, and when she had to emote as the very different character Otome in DaCapo2, she was totally outstanding.

I was also impressed by Watanabe Akeno (Lizzy) in Blue Drop, where she gave her role strength and depth, it seemed to me.

I don't tend to watch eroge shows very often any more, but I'm hopeful this will at least be interesting. I like Mashimo's more pretentious girls-with-guns shows (didn't like El Cazador, it was too normal!) so I'll give this a shot.

I'm really only here to go:

i) Hikaru Nanase music!

and

ii) Holy crap the OP is beautiful! It's called "Karma", and it's sung by KOKIA who specialises in weird trippy music. You can hear a clip of it at this Spanish language website from a radio broadcast. I can't wait to see what Mashimo and co. do with the animation on this.

Wow O.O, it fits the theme of the show perfectly. Ahhh, this even raises my expectations the shows gonna be alright even more. I hope I'm not wrong on this.


Here's an amv from the VN I thought was pretty good, as the music fits the theme of the novel + lyrics match what they are doing sometimes, but it's loaded with SPOILERS:

That song is awesomely haunting. I definitely want to see the animation they use for the song at 1:08.

... shame I haven't played the game, nor know anything about the OVA... I'm going crazy over the fact that you guys are putting the game stuff in spoilers that I want to click, but I'll stay away from them

so, knowing nothing about this at all, unlike most of you, I'm actually drawn to this because of BEETRAIN. Even if the story sucks overall, at least this means it's going to have beautiful music to it. And it also sounds like I don't have to worry about the biggest problem with their girls-with-guns series, something that was mentioned earlier- there's actually a male protagonist! (lack of one is what turns me off from Madlax, Noir and El Cazador)

I don't have high hopes for this (the VN itself turned into a trainwreck in the last arc, turning one of my favorite characters into an unlikable bitch over really stupid reasons and even contradicting its own logic at points, and basically hitting every cliche that I REALLY hoped it wouldn't), but I'll be watching regardless, simply because I like some of the characters and there's bound to be some awesome gunfights.

OMFG , my first time hearing something negative about the last arc. I can't even fathom why you would think the reason was stupid, nor how it was contradicting itself.

I am not too sure about awesome gunfights. Bee Train did not have a knack for animated dynamic action scenes well, they are too concerned with artsy visual of gunfights. It is not even Hollywood, it is approaching Bollyword in sheer absurdity.

Cat Shit One trailer has even better, grittier gunfight scenes than the rest of all Bee Train ones so far.

I agree completely and I am looking forward to this anime

*just found the 3 episodes of the Phantom OVA animation and going to watch them as warming up for the upcoming Phantom- Requiem for the Phantom*

Raaaah! Avoid avoid avoid. There IS NO OVA of this game. Fans are all agreed about that. This detestable abomination DOES NOT EXIST.
