I checked the first tome of the manga and it seemed very common. Has anyone been able to read further enough to have an interesting opinion about it?
On the other side, it's nice to see Masami Yûki (writer here) back on the screen (with this and the Patlabor short). If only it helps to get more of his works in western bookshops, that's great!

pls not be another young black jack.. however, it looks awesome, at least visually.. havent try the manga it self...
as for pluto, i think consecutive movie could work... but it's already popular even without adaptation.. i really don't thhink it necessary because of it... not everything need to be animated..

^pretty much this
I would love a Pluto adaptation at this point, but I can wait. This one arguably looks a lot more workable than YBJ did. Hopefully, we have a good adaptation on our hands with this.
