Jeez.... nearly got a heart attack when I saw the word "shingeki" the disappointment is real! Nonetheless I enjoyed the parent story of bahamut, definitely going to watch this. Really dig the art style for this series.

So this bahamut will have no connection to the previous one that came out at 2014 or is this some sort of spin-off or side story or smth like that or this will be tottaly different with its own story etc...?
Anyway Spring finnaly starts too look abit better cuz so far mostly only average animes were announced nothin really good was already worried...

Disappointed with the staff, hope they can surprise me though and produce something enjoyable. Visual looks good and apparently Major is great, so there's hope, much better than DEEN or Arms.

Well I'd rather just get the actual second season but whatever......this will have to do in the meantime.

Might consider watching it if there's no fucking Favaro. The most off-putting character I've seen in a while.

That's not for the upcoming anime, it's like a year and a half years old. Was done by a different studio as promo for the game.

With Candy Boy director and those 2 girls in the OP, this better be yuri.

And love the dragon girls design on that picture.

Seems interesting. I' like the design of the monster girl and I'm curious to know more about the magic academy setting since this is based on the popular event from the game.

Now, back to waiting for news of SnB s2 ;-;

I'm gonna watch this because I loved the parent story dearly but it's really sad that we still haven't heard any news about the second season of Bahamut Genesis.
