Is there any word yet on whether Funimation or Crunchyroll are gonna be streaming this series in Region 1?

The new PV looks more exciting and sounds much better than I expected initially - it certainly does not sound like ryo is composing the BGM.

supercell song sucks as expected though.

Haters.

I like the song. Btw the choreo in CG world looked smooth, Imaishi on action baby.

It sounds like it's a reboot of the OVA, rather than a continuation, because Mato is saying Yomi's surname as "Kotoriasobi" rather than "Takanashi", and talking about becoming her friend. Also, it seems like Chariot may be the main villain, rather than DM.

Action look pretty sweet.
Doll-loli looks pretty darn psycho.

Hope they will keep the good thing about the OVA (the well-animated fighting scenes) and drop the bad thing (the soporific plotline outside of the combat scenes).

I'm not sure this is a reboot of the OVA like some people were speculating. In fact, I'm almost sure this is a continuation now after seeing a bit more detail of Deadmaster's role in this.

I don't consider this TV series as a reboot but rather a sequel, due to Mato being entered in highschool and some new characters for both Mato's world and BRS's world.

This line in the trailer: その「小鳥遊(ことりあそび)」ってと友達になりたいんだね?
"So you want to become that 'Kotoriasobi' person's friend?"

Saying Yomi's name wrong, and speaking as if they are not friends yet does not sound like a continuation/sequel to me.

They're not in high school either, as Mato's bio on the website clearly says she's 13, same age as in the OVA, and 2-3 years too early for Japanese high school unless she skipped a lot of grades (Japanese high school starts at 10th grade/year).

I wish they had kept the OVA animation. From what I have seen the anime seems to be not as good. I do look forward to seeing this though. Hopefully it will be a good anime. I see this as its own thing and not a sequel or a reboot of the OVA.

It's a shame that this nice dat ass of BGS haven't being shown in the last trailer... they're trying to hide her role in the story or she'll again play minor role here?

Well now, that's interesting. And perhaps a little disappointing at the same time. I'm curious as to how they're going to redo the BRS vs DM elements now.

In regards to the whole business with the Takanashi/Kotoriasobi deal, I thought I'd just post this here for those who are confused on the matter (like I was at first):

Quote:
Her surname, "Takanashi", is written with the kanji "小鳥遊" for "little bird play". Mato, not knowing how to read Yomi's written surname correctly, refers to her as "kotori-asobi" (小鳥遊), which literally means "little birds play". Yomi later explains to her that her last name is read as "Takanashi" (鷹無し), which means "no hawks", and tells her that her surname stems from the saying that "When the hawks are away, little birds play".

Well, you can't have that kind of quality for a whole series. But hopefully some of the animators that worked on the OVA will animate some of the fighting scenes on the TV series.

Not gonna lie, I felt that the action in the OVA was kind of underwhelming.

It was still the only reason to watch it. All the scenes outside combat were a pointless waste of time.

Personally I felt that the animation in the OVA was lacking. The fight scenes were awkward and clunky/choppy, and the scenes in the "normal world" were decent but nothing to write home about. This series seems like a much needed improvement.

Wasn't this explained in the OVA?
