J.C staff seem to make a habit of straying from the source material of nearly everything they do, H&C and Nodame Cantabile aside (I think... haven't read the h&c manga and only read nodame from when the anime stopped and up!).
That the studio doesn't have its directors on a short leash is a strength, even if the end result is flawed. Not all changes will be for the better, but I can't criticize a nod toward creativity/risk-taking (now individual teams should rightfully be criticized if they aim for mediocrity, but there are also strong efforts like Asatte no Houkou and kimikiss), as long as the properties are adequately respected.

Ultimately, the safe and boring strategy would be to force faithful adaptations from each team.

Nabari no Ou short commercial: http://youtube.com/watch?v=Aji7pjtNU10

The lighting in the commercial doesn't look bad, but the background still doesn't look like standard J. C. Staff animation to me. Oh well. So long as they don't make many drastic changes and stick to the manga then all's right with the world. OP song sounds pretty good as well.

Thanks for the CM. But I am not fond of the OP, oh well. I can just skip it.

OP song sounds pretty good to me too. I can't wait to see what they'll cover in the first episode.

Full OP is already out on Youtube: http://youtube.com/watch?v=HvIPtRGGN-A

I definitely like the song Crawl by Veltpunch, and I wonder what the visuals will look like.

Also here are three magazine scans of Nabari no Ou anime.

I have a different opinion after hearing the whole song. I like the song now. I do not know why, maybe that CM was the wrong part of the song. But I am looking forward to the op animation as well, oh yea, I really like women bassist...

OP for the anime: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TgbLUeOv8PE
ED: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gJBWbt7_ElM

Looks good so far. Both OP and ED sound awesome. I'm downloading the raw now.

First episode was pretty good! I've not read the manga before, but I loved the visual style - very reminiscent of Loveless in its use of colours and digital effects (and character designs?). Some great fighting animation as well, much more impressive than I was expecting. Interesting characters, too.

It's not the most wonderfully amazing show to walk the planet or anything, but it's definitely one of the better Spring '08 shows to air so far. Looking forward to the next episode.

I'm just glad to see the characters animated. I can't take my eyes off the OP or the ED when I'm listening to them. It's so damn good.

Edit:

Then I'm really looking forward to it. Download's almost finished, just a few more minutes.

Correct me if I'm wrong but this is the only show J.C Staff are doing this season yeah? (as opposed to 3+ like usual) If that's the case than if the animation doesn't stay at an above decent level the entire way through I'll be disappointed. Though I'm sure some of their staff is prepping for future projects like Znt3 and Slayers 4...

Yeah I like the OP animation as well. But we already know that JC Staff can do great OP's. Just check SnS 2nd OP.

Who is elisa? Is she famous? I like the ed, but I never heard of her.

@ anyone who has read the manga
Are the deviations from the source material adding to the story, or taking away? I know you guys were discussing the hand spring sensei did, where there others? Is it sticking to the script? I am going to see if they have the raw on nico yet...

EDIT:
Well I went on nico, they only had the second half (WTF?!) Well the comments were funny, but anyways. If you want to see it go here. Anyways they changed alot... I went back and read the first 2 chapters after seeing the second half of the 1st episode.

Spoiler for Changes:


Well the anime has turned the action up to max. The action scences were so awesome, the escape from the hospital, was so cool. I did not think the characters would be that skinny... But I am really liking the series now. I will watch the whole thing no doubt. They sacrafice story to incorporate action, it is not a bad trade off. I am not disappointed at all. I like the action take on the story.
