The only interesting part is the psychic character.

And some people blame modern anime for using school as the most common setting...

What? This is a horrible plot synopsis, hopefully it will be more than that.

I don't think so. I'm interested in works of Sunrise but director and synopsis are enough to scare me away.

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...

1970s sci fi is always great, the director is an interesting choice, and it's done by Sunrise...this has potential to be great.

But I'm still waiting for their official unveiling of G REKO. I truly want to see what kind of hilarity Tomino can bring in the 2010s.
Ok™

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?

I'm not sure about this. I'll wait until I see a trailer, or at least some of the character designs.
I don't accept random friend requests, but feel free to PM me if you want to talk about something i've posted or talk about some anime/manga that i've seen.

Old school Code Geass. Will probably watch.

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.

MAYUYU seiyuu-ing with Hanaza and Ono ...

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.

The art looks fucking delicious. Not much else looks promising, but I can't understand Japanese so obviously what I took away is quite limited.
