Uchiage Hanabi woud probably be a better credit for him since Takeuchi was the director of this movie.

Pretty good staff though, far better than Yurikuma. Might be cool after all.

Goooooosh, simply can't wait. I've been watching these trailers one after another during October, and hype has been only growing stronger. Smth tells me it'll be The Next Great Thing. Sure, it can crash and burn, but i want to believe. Ikuhara and almost-penguins (?) - they did it once, they can do it again.

God, the hype here is simply unreal. BL anime by Ikuhara is already GLORIOUS, since he is my favorite director and we need more ACTUAL BL, with sensibility and stuff. Ikuhara is a master in doing that. And NOW we get those seiyuu. Miyano Mamoru AND Hosoya Yoshimasa who are two of my favorite seiyuus ever plus some really, really good additions like Junichi Suwabe and the guy who voiced Yuri Plisetsky.

I. Am. So. Ready.

Really does look beautiful. I hope the story (or is it stories?) stands up to the animation.
