Hmm... The staff for me seems pretty solid at least in my honest opinion (though not a lot of people liked Servamp's nor Aoharu's director at the very least as far as I am concerned, tho Aoharu was just mediocre because the source was just like that, Servamp was good imo) and as for the series composition... I'm kinda sold with this as well honestly, but we'll see how this one goes from there.

Edit: I noticed that this is a continuation of the first one, welp I might as well put it on the PTW to see if I can try to go and watch it.

I'm so looking forward to this! Very happy to know that it's real and happening. Though I can already imagine people unfamiliar with the series and manga whining in the comments after Reload Blast airs.
This is the rare case where I absolutely don't care about the staff and whether they end up butchering it or not. Judging from the PV though, I think they'll do just fine. One thing I know for sure - the voice acting will be superb.

There are three seasons total and two more OVA prequels. Reload Blast will be the fourth season. It might be easier and faster to read the manga, if you're feeling intimidated by the amount of episodes. It slightly differs from the anime though.

Considering the manga is done, will they adapt the whole thing?

It actually looks pretty cool. I dig the music. Kind of gives me an AoT vibe (the setting).

Everyone's hyping this up on Twitter so I might give it a shot.
