At first I thought it was going to be based on Romance of the Three Kingdoms. Now I'm disappointed.

The two main characters remind me of Ichigo and Rukia. And Studio Pierrot? Hope this one will be a long running series. Fillers are always welcome. : ]

Beelzebub -they trashed it
Bleach -haven't seen, but the infamous reputation precedes it.
Flame of Recca - haven't seen it
Fushigi Yuugi - haven't seen it, but a friend liked it
Great Teacher Onizuka Haven't seen it but it's apparently well-liked
Juuni Kokuki aka (Twelve Kingdom) haven't seen it
Midori no Hibi seen it and enjoyed it
Naruto seen part one and enjoyable enough....until the fillers
Ninju haven't seen it
Saiyuki haven't seen it
Yu Yu Hakusho - haven't seen it
and many more

Seriously what's wrong with this Studio??

The bold are my comments. From what I seen, they have had decent series and blatantly greedy commercialized series. This could swing either way to me.

^You haven't even seen half of them. I've seen a little more and here are my opinions:

Beelzebub - they really ruined this one with all the fillers and ridicoulus animation
Bleach - it's a faithful manga adaptation, the fillers' quality is usually horrible though
Flame of Recca - haven't seeen it
Fushigi Yuugi - haven't seen it
Great Teacher Onizuka - haven't seen it, but I'm sure it's really good
Juuni Kokuki aka (Twelve Kingdom) - the best fantasy anime ever
Midori no Hibi - seen the first half, didn't like it, but that's not the Studio's fault. the production quality was alright
Naruto - just like Bleach, good manga adaptation, but this has too many fillers. they're not even necessary since the manga is lightyears ahead.
Ninju - haven't seen it
Saiyuki - haven't seen it, but this one has a big fanbase too
Yu Yu Hakusho - one of the best shounens I've ever seen

They're really not as bad as some people say.

Studio Pierrot is known from bringing long series and because its a long series then the quality of the animation and the episodes overall are variable, i mean most of the times the episodes of their long series are either fillers or poorly made

Title as cliche as ever.

Anyway, might watch.

This is Chinese history by the way.

The warring states in China in 3rd century B.C.

Hope this is going to be epic.

I like Studio Pierrot. That should be enough to get me into this, but...

Meh. Historical animes never really were my thing. If it goes well, and everyone else really likes it, I might think about it but... -.-V

We all know how rapidly MAL users like to jump to conclusions:

1 - Dropping the series before even watching it
2 - Bashing a series because "everybody else" are bashing it
3 - Bashing a studio because "everybody else" are bashing it

What is not realized about any adaptation are:

1 - actual staff on the project matters most, not really the studio
2 - the original material, whether it's more suitable for particular type of adaptation
3 - the story itself

...and the list goes on.

The manga so far is awesome and is apparently very huge in Japan and Eastern countries. The art is pretty horrible though, hopefully the anime will improve on that.

And yes, this is seinen, not "shonen garbage," meaning its gonna be more dark and have more mature and philosophical themes. Some people; however, prefer the "shonen garbage," like Bleach and Fairy Tail. Naruto have fairly heavy seinen elements. I like Fairy Tail and used to like Bleach, they're senseless and stupid but they're fun. They also don't cause you to think about deeply about the plot, character motives, and the more complicated stuffs; this is a good thing for some but a bad thing for others.

Some people only watch harem, fanservice, humongous or all female cast, and things of that nature. I'm not gonna comment on them since I have no idea what goes through their heads.

Oh, and thank god its not based on Romance yet again. China is more than just Romance, that period doesn't even make up 1% of Chinese history and is hardly an important event. Much of the stuff in the book is entirely fictional anyways.

Watched 1st trailer and the animation have CG like crappy Berserk movies but not too much like Berserk. 3D CGI and Studio Pierrot epic fail.
