The design by Murata is very nice as usual but I'm a little disappointed with Kumi Ishii's design even if it's still nice. Besides Kumi Ishii is talented for facial expressions (look Kure-nai !) so I'm looking forward to this show

The designs for the anime look too different from Murata's design... was hoping it would be around Last Exile level in being close to Murta's original designs.

I'm still praying for some involvement by Shuntaro Okino, but I do not Kotaro Nakagawa for the music.

GONZO likes 'em young.

I prefer Murata's design.

I don't expect much from this series especially because it's done by GONZO. Still, I will hazard to try and watch this.

I could be good, just as long as there are no mecha battles.

A bit curious about the premise of a futuristic what-if: a Tokyo finally terraformed into a rain forest in the face of global warming. This looks promising.

I wonder if they had taken their inspiration from these artworks:

Also makes you wonder about Origin~Spirits of the Past~ (fantasy link) and Chaos: HeAD (lithographs link).

As the first colored image of the smoothed/less intricately shaded for animation design I think the picture is pretty good though a little brightly colored compared to how perfectly Last Exile captured his particular art style and feel, so until I see darker art from like an action scene or something and facial expressions (which is supposed to be something Ishii is good at?) I can't really judge yet whether it will capture the overall feel like Last Exile did so well until we see it in the actual flowing animation. In this particular image I think it's the shading/shininess or "splitty" messiness of the hair in that freeze frame that's making me do a double-take compared to how Murata's characters' distinctive hairstyles were perfectly captured in Last Exile, at first glance the face and eyes seem to capture it pretty well for adaptations of his characters by a second artist so I think the picture is pretty good so far.

Some of the other characters will also be a good indication of how much of Murata's art is captured or not when we see their adaptations.

Obviously Murata's original in that other picture is as usual fantastic.

I wonder if the "old man" is going kick as much ass as Alex

I just hope the anime is as epic as it sounds. I'm going to be highly pissed if it's not.

I don't see why it wouldn't be. Just don't have your expectations set at a rather high level, though saying that i'm hoping for quite the epic series. I should be telling myself that.

It's sure to be juicy fanservice in terms of visuals.

Yup, I join both of you in hoping for this.

VERY SMALL website update. Just a new front-page pic. The blog also has 3 landscape pics.

^ Sweet pics, that massive wall is impressive. I wonder what the coloured towers in the first pic are for, though.

Not sure. My first guess is watchtowers. I'd have to say that my favorite is the pic in the second link. I love rainy days in both art and reality.

The area in the second pic looks like it's in left side of town, seems a little dingy. I guess any town will have slums and lower income areas. I agree it's very well-drawn, it looks like parts of Taiwan I've been to.
