If it is the same staff of Tales then we have the guarantee that it will be a quality series.

That Giyuu shot from an ep looks great. Hopefully the chara blends well enough with the CG background in motion.

Not the voice I expected for Zenitsu and Inosuke but I'll wait and see. Giyuu is great tho.

And of course, look at that Go Shiina and Yuki Kajiura collab lol. I love both of them so no complaining here.

Seeing that this is a production directly under Hikaru Kondou himself, hopefully this will be their love project.

Interesting staff members and a really cool key visual!

I enjoyed Tales of Zestiria the X and so I’m looking froward to this show, too! Yuki Kajiura for the Music promises some amazing soundtracks, so I’ll keep an extra eye on that aspect.

A shame that this staff is going to waste in a generic battle shounen.

Director is meh, the character designer Matsushima is fucking GOAT though. Hoping that he is doing more animation than on Zesty. Shiina x Kaijura is amazing too.

Generic? It is far from generic. I am bored of shounen but this series in interesting. We have a likable MC who isn't a hot-head always yelling generic MC. The cast are likable and their backstory are great. No friendship power-up thing. No talk-no-jutsu. The MC straight-up kill the enemies without any hesitation.
