I think so :p
But seriously, I think that most people dislike the new designs because they feel moefied. I (and most of the people here I think) liked the character designs from the OVA, not because they were moe but because they were good. And now they did this to them. Also things like putting glasses on Yomi and changing hair styles make it feel like an entire new cast.
What are you talking about? All the characters were and are lolis. That hasn't changed.

I just saw that it's going to be only 8 episodes long... I guess that explains why Thermae Romae aired before it, but... only 8, really? I thought 12 was already very short...

I still pretty much have no idea what Thermae Romae is. I know, I was pretty hyped for this and turns out it's such a low number of episodes. I would accept 11, but 8 is a biiit...yeah, short.

I think 8 episodes will be more than enough. Considering what the ova is like, I doubt the story of its TV version will be any more complicated. Rather than dragging it on aimlessly. It would be better to get to the point quickly and finish it off on a high note, before we start losing our attentions. Beside, having a short number of episodes means higher production quality, right? They can always do another season or even a movie if they feel like.

Judging by the over-reliance on bad 3dcg and subpar character designs in the trailer, in my opinion the answer is no, not necessarily.

Less episodes only means higher production quality if it's got a comparatively larger budget. If it's got a budget for 8 episodes, then it won't be spending any more per episode than a 13 episode series with 13 episodes' worth of budget. And a weekly anime is a weekly anime, they don't have any more time between episodes than anything else.

Basically, no, length and production quality aren't correlated. A better, if still not perfect, correlation is ¥ budgeted per minute of animation, and we have no way to know what BRS TV's budget is.

I don't like the new look of DeadMaster, not because of the OVA but because I read the manga and the one in the OVA is similar to the one in the manga...

I am seriously looking forward to this since I love the story behind the BRS world (those that read the manga too know's what I'm talking about).

Please, don't let it be a disappointment :S

Madoka and Black Rock Shooter look nothing alike. Biggest difference is that Black Rock Shooter doesn't have wide faces.


I didn't say Black Rock Shooter looked like Madoka. MATO has similarities to Madoka.

And now that the anime has aired, seems like a lot of people are agreeing that BRS has a Madoka vibe, and even comparing the eyes of the new anime to the eyes in Madoka.

So was anyone actually expecting much out of this? I mean the only thing that made people obsessed with Black Rock Shooter was the concept of the character and that was it, which is something that I will never understand. Heck, you don't even have a character concept really, all you had was just how she looks like.

Anyways, that does not translate in anyway to any promise of an actual good plot. The plot seems pretty bad actually, though fanboys of the character might still like it, or bring themselves to like it, and buy the DVD anyways.

So just want to let you know I don't really like the OVA and didn't really care that much about the figmas etc....but this series is really good to believe, thanks to the series I finally appreciated Huke's original characters and now I'm collecting their figmas and guess what ~ I also pre-ordered the BD box set.

Talk about expecting nothing on this series ~ just to let you know....

"I expected a few, but the series delivered MORE!!"

I expected more because the OVA promised more.
