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.

OMG Something new from ABe!?
SO IN!
Wait is he the character designer or will he be doing the story too?
Bah, it doesn't matter, if ABe has a hand in any of it I'll watch it! ^_^

I still haven't see Texhnolyze cause I've been to cheap to buy it....Think I should go buy it like, right now?

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).

Haven't heard any news on dates. As excited as I am for this, and as much as I want it to come out as soon as possible so I can get my ABe/Konaka/Nakamura fix, I expect this to be in production for quite a while. You can't rush perfection, and any amount of wait time would be worth it if they put out something as god-tier as Texhnolyze (which was ABe/Konaka).

That doesn't mean I wouldn't like to see it before 2011... -_-

One guy who created Haibane Renmei, the second guy who wrote script for Mononoke, and the third guy who directed REC. The guys who made Lain together, which inspired Wachowskis to make The Matrix. And now they strike back. I'm in.

I really will be following the progress of this serie :D
"The past will often attack the present with the pain of your memories."
"There is no wish that doesn't come true."
"The brain is a microcosm creating its own stories. People then live out these stories."
"Time does not exist. Only the illusion of memories exist."
"Existence does not rely on matter. Everything is phantom."
"The waking dream called the world is constantly changing. What's so sad about that?"
"Pure perfection has no past. That is how you live perfectly."
"How can you say you are a phantom?"

Dang, this series looks cool. Lain and Haibane Renmei aren't exactly what I'd call fun animes, but they both do a very good job at telling a deeper story than one can find in most anime (and pretty much all television, for that matter). The early 20th century setting looks great for Despera.

Haibane Renmei was awesome! I didn't watch Lain yet, so maybe I'll watch Despera and Lain at the same time...

The setting, character designs, and the comparisons to Lain make this look like another version of SEL, only steampunk instead of cyberpunk.

I'm not complaining, I'm just saying I hope the plot is halfway original and not a rehash of SEL.

I also hope this won't be some kind of SEL#2 rework thingy or something like that, but really something on it's own. With own sphere, characters and stroy development etc.
I hope ABe will surprise me yet again, like he did with Haibane Renmei.
Texhnolyze (or something like that) was a great disappointment to me personally. But I have my hopes up for this one. ^^

Despera canceled
"Hello Joshua,
Thank you for contacting me.
Yes, the anime of "Despera" have been stopped so far.
But I think you will be glad that I can tell you something.
As the graphic novel "Despera" is preparing to publish.
And we plan to publish paperless version too.
It will be included English version.
The next year, you maybe read that."
...and it was Tim Leary. And god help us, we smoked him... (c)
