"Sounds" like Angela has worked her magic again :D

Very good trailer and here's hoping that the "regular guy" character turns out GARness by the end of it :)

Spoiler for blood and gore:

No more Kaibutsu Oujo adaption please, i wont accept it damn gainax. :rolleyes:

Indeed i noticed that straight away (and it has me very excited). I like to call it the 'Gainax-touch'.

It's a shame to hear that this anime adaptation will mostly be new material, though i've read quite a bit of the manga so i can say it makes quite a bit of sense. It's already been mentioned just how much gore there is in the manga, not to mention some of the more disturbing scenes. Looks like they're going to keep the same basic story, so i'm all open for new material set up --- especially going by the staff line-up.

Also it's great to hear a new Angela song. :)

Could do without the "regular guy" character in there but it's not like I'm surprised to see someone like that in there either. I just hope the regular guy male protagonist of the show doesn't take away too much of the screen time of the main dead girl. The action shots with Makina already make me like her so far with excellent Gainax action-heroine style, looking forwards to the show.

I actually want to see more of the monk on the motorcycle. I hope he has some good actions scenes and survives the series.

If the material was too violent for them, then they should have chosen another title. Hopefully, the violent parts can be reinserted into the DVD release if it's not totally original material.

Have you seen how violent the manga can be? If so then you can agree with me that i'd rather not look at an anime adaptation with those taken out. There would be no action at all in the series if it went that way.

But that's what was mused when "original material" and "ethical" was mentoned. Manga too violent in other words. Violence decreased in the original production. So if it's too violent for TV, then it can be put in the DVD version, like what Witchblade and Higurashi did.

Haven't read the manga but that pic seems to imply body parts not attached to their normal places, possibly Elfen Lied level.

The opening has that nice dark sound to it. I like it.

No one can disagree with that.
But this will already be better because it looks like the fights will have animation.

Yeah, ofcourse though, since the monk seems more interesting he will obviously get less screentime than the "normal guy." From the premise, I'm looking for action not lots of distractions from it.

Without spoiling anything, i'll just say that if they were to animate the fights from the manga and they'd be added on the DVD's, then there would be no action at all in the TV broadcast.

DonQuigleone 2008-09-24 19:34

Either way, I'm looking forward to this. In the trailer our Corpse Princess looks pretty GAR.

Zu Ra 2008-09-29 06:58

Usually I pick up a lot of series which leaves me little time to watch . But this season I have decided to handpick a very few anime so I can dedicate all my time into it . Being a fan of supernatural this anime stuck me the most . I had heard about this anime couple of weeks back but was too lazy to post . With Oct 2 drawing closer I just cant wait

Shadow X 2008-09-29 10:16

The trailer is great, and I really love the music sung by Angela - it is good to hear them again since I last watched Fafner.

This anime is definitely in my list of -Must Watch Animes- for this season. :D

Heh, beautiful illustration. It's Ryouji all over.

Uwah... It seems I seriously overestimated this anime...

As far as ep1 goes:

The good things:

-Animation; nicly done, as I expected
-I guess the ED is cool to listen to, once a week

Bad:

-Geez... The two main characters (Oori and Makina) are so monotone (棒読み), it's laughable. Actually, I did laugh.
-Attempted comedy is poor
-Story seems to have potential, but it wasn't impressive this episode and from both this episode and preview, I was reminded of that Tokyo Majin Gakuen Kenpuchou.
Spoiler for this episode:


Overall, I'll see what happens next, since it wasn't too boring, but from just the first episode, I can't look forward to much other than good animated action scenes.

v1cious 2008-10-01 23:27

if it's got a lot of action, that's good enough for me. come on it's Gainax.

Is that an admission of masochism? :p

DangerMouse 2008-10-02 00:44

Gainax + lots of nicely animated action. Definitely giving this a try for several episodes.

orion 2008-10-02 07:08

Totally agree with the others. It's Gainax and an action title. Plus it's angela. Still waiting for it to show up...

aroduc 2008-10-02 14:00

Just got around to watching it. Really underwhelmed.

Saying it has lots of action is being... uh... rather generous. ToraDora is about 60 seconds short of having as much action as this. What action it does have isn't exactly particularly well directed or choreographed either. It literally feels like they went down a checklist of Gainax cliches, made sure they did all of them as quickly as possible, and then just had Makina tackle the monster.

And yeah... I'm with Serenade, the voice acting was abysmal, but it was amusing to see them try to jam Horie Yui into as many roles as possible.
