I will definetly check this out, I really liked Lain and you can't go wrong with ABes designs so however the story may develop there will always be pretty characters to look at. Reading the summary it sounds exactly like Lain but set in the 20th century instead, I don't mind that at all though.

Lain sucked some serious rancid donkey arse, so I'll not get my hopes up for this, but I'll still give it a chance as I enjoyed Haibane so ABe obviously has potential.

Complete first, bash later. I didn't find it particularly good at the beginning either but it gets better by the episode and while it becomes really weird, the strings untangle pretty nicely. I suggest you give it another shot.

I miss Abe's stuff, he hasn't done anything since Texhnolyze.

Great news.

No; Lain will probably remain the only series to grace my dropped list forever. As it's the only series I own that I won't complete. I bought the box set based on wide praise and recommendation and watched the first disc, maybe a bit of the second (I forget, honestly) and just couldn't handle it any more. I'm more cautious about blind buying since Lain and a few other burns (though the others I did manage to finish). So Lain will stay as a reminder.

There's nothing about the show I liked. It had no redeeming qualities that compelled me to continue with it, so I dropped it like I would any other series I deem not worth my time for uninteresting or bad elements (art, animation, music, foley, voices, story, pacing etc etc).

Haven't seen Lain but I've heard and seen some stuff on it. I'll give this a shot as well.

I'm in. I just finished Haibane Renmei and loved it. I haven't seen any other of his works, but I enjoyed HR, so I'm definitely watching this.

Lain was win, hopefully it will be as deep, although with the current audience for anime i doubt it.

Yet to check out any of his stuff, but I'll probably give it a try with how much this guy seems to be praised.

What's with all the Lain hate? I loved Lain :(

Regardless, ABe's stuff is amazing, I'm definitely watching this.

For people who haven't seen ABe's stuff, it tends to be confusing, abstract and slow. I STRONGLY recommend starting with Haibane Renmei, as it is by far his most accessible work. Lain and Texhnolyze are much darker and stranger.

I'll check out this new anime, but then I still need to watch SEL. I'll probably pick that up sooner or later... maybe over the summer.

Texhnolyze wasn't written by ABe. You should, uh, learn your material a bit.

To see ABe Yoshitoshi's work again is something I'm definitely looking forward to. Can't wait to check this series out when it arrives.

I'm definitely in.

It sounds a bit like Lain 2.0, but since I found that one amazing, and like ABe's stuff in general, I'd surely watch it.
