Looks like they are ahead of schedule if they can debut 3 episodes in 1 day. Wit def is a strong ass studio that can do high quality action anime and make it look consistent. I am glad they have another strong source material to work with.

Just a repost from another forum...

July 7, it’s just over a month away from now! More excited with the first three episodes airing together, it’ll surely set the tone for the remaining episodes to come and deliver!
A little disheartening that Amazon Prime Video has got the rights for this series but I hope they’ll deliver more consisitently this time!

Anyway, that aside, didn’t really like the Op much especially towards the end of the PV 3. It’s got a fine tune though but well who knows maybe it’ll just grow on me with time. But for some reason, I was expecting a banger(something groundbreaking like Unravel or Guren no Yuima level) so I can’t deny I’m a little disappointed of sorts.

Still highly looking forward to the show nevertheless!

Oh, this is 2-cour? So they'll probably do the entire "prologue" arc I'm guessing.

Not impressed by the 3 episodes in a day thing when half the art consists of terrible 3DCG. Also expecting their "let's narrate this for a few minutes using a couple of still images"-trick. But it's not full 3DCG like Berserk at the very least, so that's something.

Same. A lot of people hyping this up but I don't see the hype.

This is a type of show i would really check out as an anime. It's way too serious as a manga :D
Trailer gives a nice impression. I just hope the story keeps interesting. Has Berserk vibes.
