Moreover, since the original thread was lost...

It's a novel serial that runs in Fujimi Fantasia, the same magazine that carries/carried titles such as Full Metal Panic, Slayers, Maburaho, and a whole host of other titles.

It's written by Sakaki Ichirou, author of Scrapped Princess. The two titles ran side by side for a long time, and there are many Straight Jacket collected novels out. Not sure if it's still running.

As an aside: NeoSam, next time show some restraint when creating new threads. While all the existing content may have been old there's no point in flooding the forums :)

Looks Manly. The main character Scream "I'm voiced by Takehito Koyasu" for some reason.

From ANN


Manga Entertainment to Release Strait Jacket
At its Monday morning panel at Anime Expo 2007, Manga Entertainment revealed that it is co-producing the upcoming OVA Strait Jacket, which the panelists described as "Leon the Professional meets Blade Runner…but steampunk." The American release is currently planned for August of next year.
Guess that means we would consider it pre-licensed.

Looks interesting, the lead guy kinda looks like Mido Ban from GB

I hope that this gets released in R1 as 3 OVAs.

*remembers Karas R1 current release and shakes head.*

A new trailer is now available here.

PS, it's finally out.

Wasn't bad, wasn't great. Just struck me as very very generic and very very in need of some people on the creative team to make the fight more interesting than a guy in steel plate wailing on a monster.

serenade_beta 2007-11-25 19:43

First episode was okay.

Nothing too special, some blood, destruction, stuff left unanswered.

cleo 2008-01-06 16:11

I just saw the first ep and I really liked it.
Too bad it'll only be 3 eps.

orion 2008-01-06 18:10

Does anyone think that Reiott is chanting in German?

Nope. We have more than 3 Germans in our group and they all confirmed that whatever he is saying is not...

Spoiler for ep2:

Ashlotte 2008-02-17 22:15

Well I had fun tracking down this thread...Didn't expect it to be in licensed. :p

Episode one was certainly equal parts lovely looking and gruesome though...Obviously the plot so far is nothing revolutionary, but I was quite entertained at the least. I'll defiantly have to add this one to my buy list when it comes out. (Couldn't find any release dates or info on Manga's website... :upset:)
