that synopsis really sounds original..... (*sarcasm)
"Forged in darkness with wheat harvested from Hell's half acre. Baked by Beelzabub; slathered with mayonnaise beaten from the evil eggs of dark chickens, force-fed to dogs by the hands of a one-eyed madman. Cheese boiled from the rancid utters of fanged cows. Layered with 666 separate meats from an animal which has maggots for blood."

Heh, sounds like a slice of life that will turn into something dark and dystopic at the very end; count me in.

Considering that he won't have to do any bootlicking, this show just might show people what he's really made of.

Judging by Noitamina and the staff, this show has a lot of potential. Haters gonna hate.

The synopsis doesn't really sound that interesting to me :/
But if it's going to air on Noitamina, then I guess I'll check it out either way.

I'll probably watch it. The illustration looks interesting. Not much expectations from me, but one can only hope it's good.

if it airs on Noitamina I'll watch, but I guess it is about time for Noitamina to release something crappy (as they've been releasing awesome stuff non-stop recently with the 1 hour time block).

But hey, could turn out good. :< Though the art style doesn't even seem that unique (already disappointed).

probably give it 3 episodes to find out if its good or not
If your going to complain that Yu-Gi-Oh! Mangas are on the top NY times manga best sellers, you must not realize how popular Card games are(as well as the fact that you get a free card).

It's Yamano Yukata/A-1 Productions. Do you really expect originality from them, noitaminA or otherwise?

Unfortunately, I pledged to watch every noitaminA anime ever made at some point, so I'm going to watch this despite major reservations about the director. Oh well, he might be better at writing more serious plot than he is with comedy.

Hopefully, Ashura will be the other noitaminA show airing over the winter season to make up for this.

Well, you can't judge an anime with only the synopsis.
Maybe I'll try this.
This is a signature.

Key illustration is nice, and it is a noitaminA program, so it could turn out good.

It's always fun to see people draw ridiculous conclusions on very short description of plot setup.

It has Azuma Hiroki as a writer. This alone is reason to expect much from this show.

Dunno about Yamakan though...

It does not sound very original, but the art as shown associated to a story of this kind could give very beautiful results.

While it doesn't sound too original, it is the right sort of premise to either be amazing or crap. In other words, the premise hasn't limited the show, it sounds like a premise that could even be in a Miyazaki movie, or else it could be M. Night Shamalan's foray into anime. Who knows at this point? At least they've kept us guessing.

On noitaminA wikipedia page it says:
The timeslot is to be expanded from half an hour to a full hour in 2010, and will now air Thursday nights from 24:45 to 25:45. Fractale will be aired in noitamina, does that mean it will be an hour per episode show?
