The trailer showed me more than I would like, but otherwise it looks fudging fantastic. I hope it ends up as good as I think it will be. Gotta make sure to not overhype myself XD

Eeeh !

I didn't think they try to go beyond Volume 4. Some of the stuff I saw wasn't up to the point I am currently in the manga.

Still great song too.

This looks interesting
"among monsters and humans, there are only two types.
Those who undergo suffering and spread it to others. And those who undergo suffering and avoid giving it to others."

Yep, definitely looks like they're adapting up to at least 5 volumes, so basically everything that's been translated of the manga. They showcased a lot of recent manga material in this PV. Very interesting. I'm very curious how many episodes it'll take to cover those 30-ish chapters.
