Puzzle battles? Junichi Sato? I will be keeping an eye on this. It probably won't be a masterpiece, but if it''s anything like Yu-Gi-Oh, it should be fun to watch regardless of that.

Couldn't agree more.

I hope the puzzles will be intelligent enough (a la Professor Layton) and that "puzzle battles" won't be in a generic Shounen style ("This guy is the greatest puzzle solver in this area, there is no way you''ll beat him !" and/or some sort of power-level system) .

Next fall ? that is a long time to wait.

The endless debate between fans and haters. At one point, after spending a lot of time on MAL, you just realize it's totally pointless.

Doesn't sound too good. But Original anime always has that special feeling, so I might watch it.
