Shanghai! Canaan was in Shanghai too, my roommate is from Shanghai XD. From the description of the characters, this is a somewhat supernatural series because the characters have special powers?

So anime with the Japanese occupation of China as the background setting? Interesting on whether how political the Director will make this.

Because it is part of anime no chikara, yes, it is original anime story.

Animation good enough for me; plot is potentially a goner but should be entertaining regardless. Presuming they get the historical setting right that is.

Who will be the "good guys" and who the "bad guys" in this show? From the description, the spies are being sent by the Japanese imperialists.

Bets it may be no "good" or "bad".... just one of those ambiguous asian motifs where "people with contrary goals intersect".

It looked very interesting until I found out that the director for this show also directed Persona. Therefore, I lost a little interest in it. But I will watch the first episode though.

Most of the more widely known problems occured in WWII but I can't help but keep on thinking that something is going to be glossed over by the Japanese.

So while I'm looking forward to this, I can't help but feel suspicious being a Chinese myself.

They tend to easily forget or pretend in the bad things they have done, so I doubt they'll show themselves in a bad light.

I admit I am very rusty on that part of Japanese history.

Honestly It just looks so freaking sexy and I am so starved for content this winter that I don't care. Maybe I'll bone up on a little history though. I'm just happy that it's a shiny new ORIGINAL (non otakuy) work

well its understandable if they try to avoid being seen as the evil guys they are japanese after all. but i doubt theyll potray themselves as good guys. i predict that they would put the japanese on the bad side and have a few individuals japanese as the good guys(main characters).

This was watch on my 'probables' list but the trailer looks really interesting . Will wait and see how fans react to it on AS before diving into this one . I am sold on the story a little worried about execution .

Got Vibes of Indiana Jones : Temple of Doom from the trailer . That too does start in Shanghai of 30s/40s ^^

There are more TV spots and some making-of-videos (including one showing the cast trying to learn some Chinese) at this URL.

I'm also a bit worried about how this Japanese staff will approach the subject, but I'll certainly be there to find out. Chinese people tend to be touchy on the subject, and Japanese can be a bit insensitive on it, but we'll see. Let's hope this dangerous show causes good feelings rather than bad -- or else 2channel will go down again, lol. (2channel was sent down for a couple of days last week by Korean hackers upset at remarks against their gold-medal figure-skater.)

This early in the 1930s, Japan was in control of the far northeast of China, but not at all in Shanghai. They didn't attack Shanghai until the full invasion of China in 1937. So this could be an interesting and little-known period of Japanese infiltration.

The cast and staff look good. The director of Persona Trinity Soul and the writer of Innocent Venus and The Third. And with Namikawa Daisuke and Yoshino Hiroyuki. I guess this will be a somewhat gentle violent show, lol.

I'm not sure the director of Persona Trinity Soul should be considered part of the good staff. Persona anime was awful. Having learned about him directing it earlier lowered my expectation of the show. Also, A-1 Pictures doesn't seem to have a good record in producing good anime that are not slice of life. i.e. Valkyria Chronicles, Persona...

@epl -- Yeah, well. Since I didn't watch Persona, I shouldn't talk, really. I did like The Third, though, and what I watched of Innocent Venus. The writer makes me suspect that there might be an edge of softness here that may not please some people, as Darker than Black 2 didn't please some people. But that may please me. Just a hunch. I certainly like the look of the trailers, although it's hard to tell what the story will be like.
