Always feels funny to staff's representative show choice by MAL, like he did 2 Mayoiga episodes and 6 Made in Abyss episodes, but let's choose former one lol.

Obligatory hyped because of P.A comment

Staff seems capable too, especially looking forward to the soundtracks of this series.
Kokoro did nothing wrong.

Obligatory P.A. Works hype for me as well. Their works have yet to disappoint me (except for Glasslip). But they're sure full of surprises so far this year. Racing idol horse girls upcoming season, afterwards going vampire? Lol. Still really want to watch their recent SayoAsa movie!

PV looks pretty nice, same goes for the staff. Masahiro Ando did Hanasaku Iroha and Canaan before with P.A. Works. Yet to finish the latter, but the former was really great! He's well-versed in the action and animation department as well, so I can see this show having some neat-looking action sequences, working with the action director! And Masaru Yokoyama is a big plus too. He can produce some amazing music.

Looking forward to this!

I haven't watched any of P.A. Works' other series, but this looks pretty good! For Summer 2018, I'll probably be busy with a lot of the shows left over from Spring, but I'll definitely at least check out the first episode.

Last P.A Works show ( Kuromukuro ) is okay-ish . Since that the first time they make a show with mecha theme. Now is a vampire theme ? Hype already

Action anime with Masahiro Ando. Good. From this PV alone the cinematography looked stylish. The composer is one of the best too.

Anyway, it's funny that OP mentioned Hanasaku Iroha as the anime that the director worked on when there are other anime that's more fitting to this announcement.

I predict disaster in BD sales unless they appeal to the fujoshi audience. Shirobako s2 please, not this hollywood-like generic action anime.

Disappointed that Ando after Canaan and Iroha is doing this.

This can only be a miracle: an anime whose theme is not a drama made by P.A Works. Finally, after years the company decided to work with other types of gender.

What's wrong with action anime? Why can't we have action anime plus anime like Shirobako?

I still have to see a late-night original anime with low BD sales getting a second season. There is stuff like Dagashi Kashi, Kakegurui, 3-gatsu no Lion or Shokugeki with bad BD sales with a second season but those are adaptations of popular manga.

And I doubt a lot that this will be successful selling merchandising.

As always, MAL users does not stop surprising me. In the news about isekai, moe, ecchi or fujoshi adaptations there are lots of users throwing shit (we only have to see the news about Isekai Maou staff from yesterday) but if you say something bad about other kind of anime it's better to run away while you can.

PA Works has a potential hit unlike in recent years, where it's bland romance after bland romance.

The Trailer is interesting, plus it's Masahiro Satou (Stranger: Mukou Hadan) for the action scenes, so count me in.

Not sure what's surprising you there. There are haters for everything and that's surely not something new.

The last time studio P.A Works worked on something very serious was Kuromukuro. That was a pretty nice series though, and the fact that Canaan's director is coming back after years of working with them we might see his potential again (and I mean very damn serious stuff in a sense).

Could be decent? The staff is OK and I trust PA more than most other studios. The setting and the visuals look good.

The synopsis sounds pretty interesting! It should be in good hands, considering it's P.A. Works and they have produced a lot of series that I've enjoyed. Hope it turns out well!

I'm very much looking forward to this. PA Works is one of my favorite studios. I always appreciate the originals that they produce, even though they're not always the best (Glasslip and Sakura Quest come to mind).

I like werewolves vs. vampires shows (like Underworld), so this should be a lot of fun.

Great chara design by another video game illustrator. PV looks promising.

Just saying but a new season depends on how high the compayn is in the committee. If a manga publisher is high and the sales of the manga had a boost, then a second season happens. BD matters when a company focusing on this is high in the committee

I hope Rie Takahashi's character is important so she can steal the show like every other anime she's in. Also, I want to see more female characters in general. The initial cast list is way too guy focused!

Yeah, other originals like Black Fox are already in the database and got announced around the same time but for some reason this one is still missing even when its already confirmed for Summer. Never change MAL.
