I for one find the synopis intriguing, mostly due to the fact that novel was published in 1973. I don't expect to find cliches of modern school anime there, at least not that much.
Sunrise is also a plus but director not so much.
I don't see a problem with anime set in high schools, I for one actually find it more interesting, and don't really give a damn if it's set in a high school or garbage dump or whatnot, though with a synopsis like that, I wouldn't be surprised if we move away from the typical school setting relatively early.
Tonight... we are young... so let's set the world on fire, we can burn brighter, than the sun...
Interesting director ( Aoi Bungaku Series & Mouryou no Hako <3), Sunrise <3 and a decent plot. What is not to like?
Plus, overused settings (school theme) are either a hit or miss so what is the problem?

And seeing the milestone 70s work updated for the 21st century... The color palette, the animation, the music... it's just awesome !!
And it is coming soon !!
So MAL finally starts locking news threads that are only a few weeks old?
I wonder where was the announcement of this change? Or we are seeing yet another case of changes made that impacted users but not communicated to them?
I wonder how long people would put up with this.
As much as I have a bunch of information to share about anime announced recently I cannot share it in news board, and the anime series is too disorganized and chaotic to share information except with people already interested in the particular series.
