Wonder if it's related to Space Odyssey.

The Space Odyssey reference got me curious, but the character designs seem rather horrendous and I can't find any other positive aspect about this either. Well, let's see how it'll turn out

You don't? Sure, I guess it depends on personal preferences, but I think that girl looks literally mentally handicapped. I'm not opposed to shoujo-esque designs in general, but this one struck me out as particularly horrendous one.

Yup. Personal preference, because I'm quite fine with the art.

Sigh, I wish this was a TV anime.
other than that, I'm quite surprised that people think the character designs look 'terrible'.
Sure, when I was introduced to Sakisaka's art for the first time it did strike me as a bit weird but it grew on me and now I think her style is one of the most distinctive and original.
All in all, I'll be watching this and I hope it'll be successful unlike Kaibutsu-kun and Sukitte(sigh....I still cry a little when I think about their sales) and that they'll make a TV anime of Ao Haru Ride.

I think she's cute. The shadow under the mouth looks a bit weird at that angle, but it's a minor point for a single still image.


I thought that was a beard at first glance lol. That specific picture I think is pretty terrible, but maybe it looks better in motion.

Oh, really? I don't know what should I say about this..Guilty Crown had a pretty messed up plot after all

The design looks nice for me (maybe because I'm Sakisaka-sensei's fan ~) though and somehow the story looks interesting, too. (:

I didnt even read who was making the character design and only thought "Oh men, this looks similar to strobe edge and ao haru ride art", LOL, and it turns out it was really the mangaka Sakisaka Io XD

Definitely gonna watch!

The girl's face bothers me...

Well, it does look interesting, but it seems like a unhappy ending is expected.

I'll check it out after it's been out a while and I get a grasp of whether it's good or not from reception.

So this is what Sakisaka Io's style looks "animated"... I love it... Still waiting for a Strobe Edge or Ao Haru Ride anime adaption...

The guys is a robot. Eve no Jikan comes to mind when see this as well as Zettai Kareshi.........as well as Robocop, since the android is made to replicate the persona of the "deceased" Hal.

Hal....2001: A Space Odyssey, maybe android Hal goes crazy and kills Kurumi to make an android Kurumi.

The story is probably the android Hal getting feelings for the human Kurumi, since Hal and Kurumi seem to be a couple when they were both human/alive.

The guy looks like a duplicate design of the main character from [C].
The girl though, she does have that shoujo kind of look like she was designed by the same people who made Penguindrum. Idk. .-.
