I probably won't try it. Lately I haven't been liking P.A.Works' shows.
I dropped Nagi no Asukara when it aired, I also dropped Glasslip this season (which is even worse) and Tari Tari was soooo boring.

Um, depends on the script writer. If it isn't Okada then I'd be happy, since the director is pretty respectable (Girls Und Panzer, Jungle Guu, Genshiken). Maybe just some good original fun from PA works would be good, instead of shitty melodrama love octogons whatever.

Maybe the title should add Tsutomu Mizushima in it since the official site use "Tsutomu Mizushima X PA Works"

Wow. P.A. Works sure have been busy lately huh?

I sure hope this one will at least have more humor as the director could pull that off like he did with Genshiken.

Oh boy, another P.A. Works anime.
Hopefully this time it doesn't involve any kind of teenage romance whatsoever this time.

PA works have been hit and miss for me lately, enjoyed Nagi no Asukara but Glasslip has been a bit of a let down so far. I hope for their own sake that this is at least a bit different from both of those 2 though and actually isn't focused on a group of friends near a seaside town with romantic angst and drama with a bit of supernatural thrown in etc etc..

Hmm I got excited about Glasslip but that's been kind of meh so far, but I hope this will be good! P.A. Works is usually a hit for me so I hope this'll be better than Glasslip.

As much as I like original anime, P.A. Works has been high on romance (sub)plots since Hanasaku Iroha and it's starting to wear me down. If this becomes another one of such shows, count me out.

I'll wait and see until there's more info on this. And i think it's stupid to judge an anime because of the studio.

P.A.Works is a hit and miss, and so far Glasslip isn't one of their best works but I will definitely try this.

I'm excited for this, don't care if the drama is going to be heavy like nagi or glasslip ones again. Their art is probably the main reason why i love anime.

God, please let this one be better than Glasslip. That was nearly unbearable up to the point where I dropped it.

I loved Nagi no Asukara but I'm only watching Glasslip because I just want to see how it ends. :/

Anyway, I hope this is gender balanced. Please, please, please.

NagiAsu was actually great but yeah it was like 6 or so episodes of melodrama/ teen angst before it got really good so I understand why a lot of people dropped it :p

If they get a decent writer (certainly not Glasslip's please) then this might be good. I really hope it's not another teen love *insert number of sides/shape here*.

P.A. Works need to pay me good money if they want me to watch another one of their shows after the monster that is Glasslip. Way to tarnish your good name, fellas.

P.A. Works needs to do more stuff like Uchouten Kazoku which was an amazing anime.

Quite disappointing to think that P.A Works's blowing their budget on that Glasslip. Go animate something else!

Well, I just hope this one would be better. Another action series please.

I used to get excited when I saw "new original P.A. anime announced". Now, especially after Glasslip, I'm not excited at all. We'll see where this goes, luckily the director is way more competent than Glasslip's director.

Hopefully this director will know what he's doing. Glasslip is trash so far...

Amazing art tho!
My facts are absolute.
My taste is exquisite.
My judgment is flawless.

Yes!!! I love P.A. Works so much. I've seen and loved everything they did except Canaan and Uchouten Kazoku - which I haven't watched yet.

Looking forward to hearing more info about this!

Hmm, another PA Works anime.. Sadly, their original series are a hit/miss for me. Since I have other anime I'm looking much forward to in the fall season (F/SN, Grisaia, Psycho Pass 2, Mushishi), I'll just add it to my backlog.

I'm almost at the point where i'm developing an allergic reaction at the mere mention of P.A. Works' name.

Hopefully it's miles apart and completely different from what their previous/current two TV releases have been.
