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...

Will watch, the director knows his stuff and the setting sounds mildly interesting.

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.

I am SO down for this movie. Plus it's Sunrise too! I just wish it could be an anime instead...
