The shit are you talkin about? You serious?
Anyways, this looks really promising. This staffs + madhouse + time travel = Lets go!

This sort of multimedia franchise isn't such a big deal in Japan where everything is both readily available and intelligible, but it'll certainly be a hindrance to the overseas fandom. I'm sure I'll only ever see the anime - but if the anime is the future (seems to be some disagreement in the thread so far on that) that would be for the best, if only because it would have a chance of filling in the backstory, while if it were the "present" or past, I'd never see the ending.
Although if things happen simultaneously as they may given time travel and all, I suppose we could be SOL regardless. Well, if nothing else, anime is most likely to be the medium in which they expend the most effort making sure you're filled in on the necessary details, because I think there's an expectation that the anime will have more "single-media" viewers than either print version.

The correlation between the various timelines and the projects is presented in a different order on ANN:
- past = manga
- present = novel
- future = anime
Jus' for the sake of respectively'ness :p
Yeah I saw that too, quoting the article...
ANN said: For the manga about the story's past, Iruma is collaborating with artist Kendi Oiwa (Goth, Tsukumo Happy Soul, Welcome to the N.H.K.). For the novel about the story's present day, he is collaborating with illustrator Kurehito Misaki. Finally, he is planning the anime about the story's future with the studio MADHOUSE, the production company Aniplex, and musical composer Satoru Kousaki (The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya, Bakemonogatari, Nisemonogatari).
I find the synopsis really interesting as I love time travel story and the character design seems awesome !
But we'll miss one part of the story if there isn't any translation of the novel ...
Anyway I will watch for sure :)
Character design is pretty cool and the synopsis seems interesting enough. However, I'm a bit taken aback by the fact that it will be split into three different media. Specially considering how long it usually takes for light novels to be translated...
