ROFL what.

Okay, this looks fun, ill give it a shot. The music samples are shit tho (you just can't go with that in a music-themed show). Hopefully the music used in the PV is just a mockup of the finished product.

Was waiting for this to get more information. Fall 2016 looks like its going to be the best season this year. Classicaloid is going to be the reason why Osomatsu-san won't get a second season in a while because Fujita Yoichi will be working on this instead.

The synopsis sounds very bad (giant robots in a musical)but it could be ok watch. It seems like the Anime Industry is trying whatever they can to see what sticks nowadays. Can't say that's a good thing to be honest

I was looking forward to this show since it was announced. Anyways the staff looks very good and I doubt things could go wrong with Yoichi Fujita directing it.

been waiting for more news on this.

Fall 2016 just might top Spring 2016 for me, it's already looking like the juggernaut season of the year.

Saw the name, clicked on it. It's not a vocaloid anime, I am disappoint.
