Gonzo isn't bad if you give them a source to work off of and if it's not action so I might look into this.

Wait, does that mean THIS movie is going to be done by Gonzo as well or a new studio?

I thought Gonzo died.

sounds pretty trippy.
bla bla bla
The endless debate between fans and haters. At one point, after spending a lot of time on MAL, you just realize it's totally pointless.

Is Gonzo really gone? With their last couple anime that'd be a terrible way to leave. I saw the trailer for the 2006 anime and was interested, so I'm glad it's getting adapted.

Oh, I remember this cancellation story etc. I wonder what studio will make it now. For some reason, I'd bet on Satelight.

Sounds relevant to my interests. Murata Renji's design there looks awesome (as always), but I do hope they stick with the original style (any idea who's doing the adaptation?)

Poor Gonzo.
