Holy shit I was right! I made a comment like 5 months ago that that guy in the hat and glasses would be voiced by Tsuda Kenjiro and I was right XD. It’s getting easy to spot the “TsudaKen” character lol.

I wonder if the first trailer was pre-animated?

looks cool, thinking of watching it, seems like it would have cool action and I really dig the designs

It seemed that way to me as well. But at least the art looks consistent throughout both trailers (unlike a certain Tsukimichi where it looked like night and day between the first 2 trailers), so it should be the same team that's working on the show as well as trailer 1. You can never be completely sure tho.
Someone also said in a thread that it's almost the same team as Id:invaded.

Decent pair of voices, and it's nice to see cohesion between the new and previous posters. Could be something worthwhile, hopefully.
