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.

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


he did not write Haibane Renmei or SEL either, d'oh. Haibane Renmei is only two chapters long so you may at least say that he came up with the idea but SEL one-shot was created post-tv series/game and is not really connected to them that much. he is mainly responsible for character designs and i would not really classify any show as 'his'.

also lol @ nuffers

Based on the name of the anime and the second scan, I get feeling that the story will be a depressing one. Is it a dystopian cyberpunk story?

Abe said the title is a shortened word of "Desperado".

I say that they are "works" by ABe because his works tend to share characteristics, staff, etc.

He created the series concept for the three of them (and in the case of Haibane Renmei, did more than that) but given that Lain, Texhnolyze, and now this all share the same group of staff is sufficient to classify them in a group. Since ABe is the most public figure of said group, and that the title of this thread explicitly mentions his name, to name said group after him seems logical.

Given that I never said he wrote any of those shows, you criticizing me in an obnoxious manner for a non-existant fault seems illogical at best.

Edit- I said "stuff", whatever. Obvious what I meant.

Will this be another philosophical DEEP and boring show too?


Can't wait.

Well I can't wait, obviously. I've loved absolutely everything ABe has done, and I consider him to be the best in the business.

Hopefully it'll ber as much as a brain rape as Lain was, not sure if that'll be a good thing though ;)

And there I thought I would never hear von ABe again! Finally some good news, will watch it definitely.

Hating Lain for the simple reason, that it's to psychological and "weird" for you... tze watch it to the end before judging.

Loved Haibane Renmei and Niea_7 the most. Enjoyed the rest for the most part. Looks like Despara will be darker like Lain and Texhnolyze. Still watching.

Abe is king, and that can't be said enough. Easily my favorite "anime" artist.

Watching for eye candy if nothing else.

^^This

This show is going to be awesome. With the listed staff and a sci-fi story about a 14-year-old girl who works with advanced machines despite having no background for them with short hair and named LAin, it's guaranteed (imo) to be awesome. Btw, does anyone know when this is set to air?

So who else is excited for the graphic novel version getting serialized in three days? I can't be the only one. After all, ABe = WIN.

There should be plenty of pretty pictures in the next issue of Animage. =)

July's issue of Animage definitely has something about Despera (#7 on this cover reads "Despera"); I'm assuming it's the promised serialization...

In addition, ABe posted a few sketches on his blog with along with a short description of his drawing process. http://abworks.blog83.fc2.com/blog-entry-629.html
Looks outstanding - typical ABe quality.

Ooh, July issue? Is that out yet? I'm going to a Mitsuwa next weekend and would love to buy it if their bookstore has it! ...would they have it in the US by then, you think?

Yeah, it came out on the tenth. There are unfortunately no scans as of now, but you could probably either import it or buy it in Japan.

Unfortunately, my Japanese is only at the level of checking out children's books from the library, so I'll just be sitting back and hoping someone translates it soon.

Ehehe...I still haven't finished watching Texhnolyze. It's been so long that I'll probably have to start over.

But it's just so dark...

Finished the first two disks(8 episodes) and so far I like it.
So far it doesn't seem as complicated/hard to follow as Lian was, but I'm still enjoying it a lot! ^_^

Well on the topic of Despera, does any one have/know the translation for the image on the left, here?
I know a bit of it is cut off on the right part of panel 6 but I thought I would ask.

Texhnolyze=win. Brace yourself for a fantastic ending. (I say brace yourself because it's the best downer ending I've ever seen).

It would seem like ABe has at least some hand in the story, given the "graphic novel" version. I don't know for sure, though, so don't quote me on it. Even if he doesn't, there's no way this can't be awesome, and his character designs are enough to get me to watch/read anything anyway.

Well I just found out after going to watch Vol.4 that the disks for some of the volumes aren't the right ones....for Vol.4 I got the disk with Eps.9, 10, 11, and 12(Vol.3's disk)
and for Vol.6 I got the disk with Eps. 1, 2, 3, and 4(vol.1's disk of course).... Saddest part is that I don't think I have the recite anymore so I can even return them....Well I found some of the disks cheap online so I'll see if I can get those, though it will be awhile before I can finish the show now...T_T

Ok finally got the last disk yesterday and I just finished watching the last 3 disks........I thought I had been following the show pretty well but the last few episodes were a bit confusing........and depressing.

I need to go watch something happy now to offset this...

Oh also, on topic wise I found some new(ish) pics for Despera.

The main character seems kind of silly herself, with her yawning and facial expressions. Yay. Her hair is such a mess...

Yeah looks good. Haibane Renmei was awesome and Lain was quite surprising (after a second watch years later tho, cuz I didn't really like it the first time).
