Sakamoto is awesome, but I remain a bit sceptical about the rest.
The opening was... kind of mediocre, I need to listen to it again.

Watched the entire presentation, it was pretty cool. Loved the trailer.

Other than Sakamoto the voice cast is a bit eh.

Not a new TV series. BLAH. I may still check it out at some point because SSS was so good, but goddamn talk about disappointed. I really wanted some weekly Major to watch.

Edit: Also very surprised Tanaka Atsuko isn't back. It's not like this is a reboot of a 30 year old series and we'd have 60 year old women trying to voice 13 year old girls. Seiyuu changes make sense then. I suppose either she was not available or did not want to do it.

Four 50-minute OVAs is not my ideal scenario, but it's still a good chunk of content.

Did they change Motoko's hair since the first announcement? Aside from her look I sure am excited.

It's half decent total runtime (though I was hoping for a two cour TV series), but if there are long waits between episodes that's what will really suck. That's a real momentum killer for me, which is why I rarely watch OVAs.

I definitely agree here. It would blow if they are released slowly.

All the characters look a little weird, but I guess I'll get used to it. Really looking forward to this.
