Ok, so something is telling me I shouldn't have my expectations too high...

Oh nice, another netflix anime that I.G is working on.
And staff looks kinda decent. (Like the mangaka doing the series composition)

Seems a little bit more interesting now.

The studio hasn't done much, but I'm interested simply because the Mangaka himself will be doing the series composition.

Man i really got to praise netflex for funding so much anime, alot of the stuff on the slate seems like stuff from a time of anime past that you dont see much anymore, especially B which just looks straight out of the early to mid 00's with the likes of ergo proxy gits and so on

Jizzy as you would call yourself because youre a dick The most butthurt award goes to you And clearly you havent watched that many shows thats why you cant determine if a show is unique or not Or maybe you're just a child who likes common stuffs where hero saves the day and guys gets all the girls. Sad taste you have there kid you came up to me in the first place making you look more like a kid who got slapped without me even knowing it and start crying about it to me

I got real excited for a second because I thought the title was "Sword Gal". I wanted to see a zany popcorn show about a badass woman travelling around as a vagabond with a sword. ;-;

Instead its more seinen stuff with demonic weapons. Been there, done that. To be fair, I may still try it out, but this is about as far from my wheelhouse as you can get. :/

This exactly what I said on the B anime news posted recently.

Hmmm
The story of this boy, who has become one with a demonic weapon and is drawn into a cruel fate in which he must face countless battles, can be seen as either the story of "a beautiful weapon and an ugly person" or of "the cruelty of weapons and the beauty of humans." This is a completely new world of comic noir.

it's surprisingly intriguing, gonna get my hopes up for its philosophy
though it's possibly CGI, gonna get my hopes down for its animation quality

With B and Devilman, Netflix is really pushing out more niche titles that are rarely found in anime these days. Never thought I'd say this, but I'm glad that Netflix is funding anime like these.

I was really looking forward to this and hoping and praying that the animation would be different to this:

This was a teaser released last year for it. I'm just hoping that they changed their mind and decided not to make it fully 3DCG.

it wasnt even released last year, its a PV done a long time ago for the manga. dunno why the fuck the person who uploaded it put it as a official PV of the anime outside of baiting people for views

also from the 2 visual they released a while back it doesnt look like its going to be cg

This actually sold me out due to the staff being actually competent enough. Hope it does deliver though.

Not really familiar with the staff(except the composer), but it seems fine, I guess. I am just a bit concerned with the animation studio.
