This art style in the trailer looks awesome! I didn't know what to expect at first but this definitely changed my mind.

This looks fucking amazing. Even if the story sucks, I'd watch it solely for the art. But it having dealings with the supernatural just about solidifies that I'm definitely watching this.

I will always support the few original anime that are produced. Don't get me wrong, there are plenty of anime adoptions out there that I love, but just like in Hollywood, an original story is getting harder find nowadays.

So in other words... can't wait!!

I'd watch it.


That sounds pretty awesome.


Agreed.

But I'm seriously expecting something with mechas, because of banpresto itself and the "giga" in the title.

I just hope its not like that other....thing he made. But I'm not getting my hopes up prob going to be either a shoujo or magical girl anime.

I would like this to not suck.

It would be interesting combination. ^^ I suppose I will wait for more info till I would be able to decide if it's worth watching or not.

that would be even better

Magical Girls + Mecha sounds like a good combination to me. Could be interesting, plus Toei is generally a good sign.

Feb 24, 2011 6:28 AM by Seasonreaper

Mecha? YEAHHHHHH.

I hope. Banpresto, go!
