Okay so this is a collaboration project this time? Huh. Interesting.

I saw the PV like this morning and I thought it looked okay. Not expecting anything good from it of course after S1 (which was mediocre) and S2 (which doesn't exist), but I can at least see Saiko. <3 Kek.

Yeah the Key Visuals looks really, really lackluster by comparison to what it showed in the PV, it felt really eh... but thank god it looks alright imo. Not something spectacular but I guess it works.

Production values are good, though Ishida's art is something that can't be properly showcased in an animated format. Hopefully the pacing is improved in this adaptation though.

And yeah, those key visuals looked really plain and cheap. Glad to see that the art work is much more appealing in the PV.

The director though, lmao.

This is still a reason why I'm keeping my expectations at minimum. I won't give a lot of shit to him so far since from the impression I got from the PV it looks fine. But.

Still, its still skeptical to me. I can't really trust it especially after Root A xD

(Oh yeah btw I agree that the art from Ishida cannot translate well to anime format, mainly because of how detailed it looks by comparison).

The PV looks faithful to the first chapters of the manga, but still I'm skeptical considering what happened to root a.

Ahhhhhhhh, DEM SEYIUUS YES. <3 Everyone so far sounds to fit really well.
The director made me draw a very long and boring HMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMM.

The trailer looks soooo nice! I hope it all won't go to hell. Or, at least, I hope that the first arcs (those where I was still understanding the plot and liked the characters) will be adapted faithfully.

All I hope for is something that isn't a rushed and butchered pile of crap.

-Me, and probably every single person who watched those shows.

Whats with these "AMAZING!" director choices these days ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)

First Steins;Gate and now this, At least I didn't have any huge expectations from this, But I believe both can break through their directors cage's by plot and story telling. Only time will tell, Whats good is that their is another anime dropping this upcoming 2018 spring! This spring is legit juiced up! Now OPM and we good to go!

The character designs were much better in the 1st and 2nd season. I'm going to miss Morita, he's a good director. The good thing is that they are going to do only 12 chapters, so they will not show the boring parts of the manga and they will not give much time to the Qs escudra, and so little to Kaneki dressed as a woman.

Very nice, love the PV and the designs.

It will be hype this season, if they just follow the manga right.

Vision isn't what your eye sees but an image your brain comprehend.
A low possibility doesn't mean it is zero.

Now the question is, how many episodes will this get? If it's 12 episodes like the past two adaptations, alot of stuff will be skipped.

Exactly!! People are worried about the director and its understandable, but im more worried about the guy thats doing the script and series composition, they didn't change him.

Because popularity definitely helped Berserk 2016/7 get good production values. Ha ha ha.

TG:re isn't even finished yet so we'll either get an original ending or it'll end on a cliffhanger. Those really are the only two possibilities. I'm hoping they adapt up to the auction arcs conclusion and then make a sequel season later on.

Natsuki hanae is Haise Sasaki ?

So, he voiced kaneki's another side, right.

Beside this, this is second reunion for Ayaneru and Hanae after Shigatsu series (both of them voiced arima and tsubaki), and also Ayaneru and Kaito after Boku no Hero Academia (both of them voiced Iida and Ochako)
