Waiting for translated staff, but Twitter says that Ayumu Watanabe is directing and Joe Hisaishi (!) is composing the music. Wow!

Beautiful trailer. Joe Hisaishi for music, all the more reason to watch it.

A critically acclaimed manga adapted by Ayumu Watanabe (who knows how to elevate a manga with his direction) on one of the most impressive and unique studios out there. And the music composer Hisaishi.
If this isn't a perfect announcement, I don't know what is.
I already can't wait.

The art direction for this looks absolutely amazing, but then that's of no surprise when it's this guy doing it. Background artist on Akira, art director for Tekkon Kinkreet and Mutafukaz, background artist on Angel's Egg, background artist for My Neighbor Totoro..
And then with Ayumu Watanabe directing...
Kenichi Konishi, who's done work on SO many classics from most of Satoshi Kon's films to many Ghibli films, doing both designs and key animation work, doing the character designs..
And THIS sound director who's also worked on many Ghibli films..
My hype is immeasurable and my day is saved. There are so many upcoming anime films right now from all the current great (and working) ani film directors (the industry really is booming and I'm really starting to wonder if we're entering some sort of golden age for anime films..), and I have to say this is the one I'm most hyped for. Superb material + more than superb staff. And a superb teaser.

If this movie looks like that from start to finish and the story is as great as the manga readers say it is, then i'm calling a masterpiece here!
And with so many different great artists working in this movie i know this wont let us down.
