Oh shit. This is one thing I never expected to come back. Not sure how I feel about the color palette but I've seen worse with a lot of recent reboots. I remember watching the original series on TV back in the day so I'm eerily nostalgic about this. Hopefully they follow the manga more closely than the first adaptation.
