Hamana Takayuki going to be doing a Shimbou for the 5-6 weeks that this overlaps with Moshidora.
As for the series itself, I might as well take a look at it just because the past few seasons have been devoid of genuinely serious anime, but I'm not the biggest Shirrow fan out there, so I'm not expecting that much from it.
A new OVA with a May release date would make more sense, looking at the overlap with Moshidora that would happen otherwise.
Didn't Production IG say a while ago that they were returning to an old popular franchise? People thought it would be more Ghost in the Shell. Guess it was actually Appleseed. Which, I'll admit, is a little bit of a dissapointment.
But hey, better Appleseed than another LN adaptation about traps
I'm kind of expecting this to get shelved like Genesis somewhere down the road or the budget costs will get so high that they end up cutting corners a lot and end up with a really ugly looking product.
