Seems like something to keep your eye on, though the "heartwarming story for general audience"-trope is not really innovative.

"The Letters of Momo" huh...? The synopsis sounds boring but the production team looks excellent. Definitely worth a watch.

Wow, now this is very interesting indeed. The staff looks extremely impressive plus the numbers of years since the project started. The synopsis shows some interesting stuff and the illustration completes it. Too bad it will be premiered in 2012...

The staff is very intimidating lol.

Hopefully, they will live up to their reputation.
bla bla bla
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.

With that superb staff and seven years in the working I’m definitely going to keep an eye on this.

Hopefully it will live up to hype it’s causing and to the effort invested all this time.
I think, then procrastinate.
Therefore, I am.
