Is there any news of this D=?

I don't get the Gonzo hate at all. I just did a quick glance of the stuff they've done and quickly realized there is a lot of good stuff in there. A good portion of their stuff are some of the more popular shows.

Like any studio they are gonna screw the pooch at some point, but don't see why they should be written off entirely because of it.

Not surprised by that at all as I was already aware that they had done a lot of my personal favorites. As a result, I'll be giving this show a shot.

I couldn't have put it any better myself. Nonetheless, I'll probably watch it because... well, why not? It would only not be worth watching if it were boring~

Well since I see many don't liek Gonzo... It actually has some animes to remindd, they aren't totally all bad but they jsut need to be pulished... and then pressured + a lot of heat to become a diamond... <.<

I like GONZO as a brand (and as a studio to some extent... they produced some stuff I really like after all) and would be really sad to see it go away (which DID NOT happen yet, despite the haters loving to proclaim it's early dismissal anywhere they can), but as already mentioned, the creative force behind the name is very different from what it once was for the better and the worse.

That said, I approve of this news and will give the show a fair shot once it comes out.

^this. people seem to forget some of the awesome works they have done as a whole. as for there bad cgi... i could care less if its good or bad to be honest... i watch anime for the story telling mostly and the characters. hollywood doesnt even do cgi that great lol besides the "G" for the logo is pretty wicked XD come back even stronger Gonzo! this show could suck but i will still try to watch it. Emomen TURRRNN!! :D

Gonzo likes to trow lots of curve balls and relating to your particular statement they already sent a huge one with Tower of Druaga (Rosario+Vampire is another one, it's good but after reading the manga I can see why people that was into into previously got pissed). What started as something amazingly promising quickly turned into Gonzo's trademarked "meh" feeling so abundantly present on most of their shows.

Don't get me wrong, there is much to be loved about Gonzo, but drifting from the norm was never one of their traits. Instead, they were always the best when they sicked to the tied and true... maybe with some specks of originality here or there. I am hoping they stick to a fun and cleverly written moe show that gives them some much needed revenue and us something to enjoy, I really don't think they are in a position to try anything remarkably original/untested right now.

The art is good, although the anime may be so so, and what's up with all of the school comedies? Ishihara can't ban all of them or restrict them all especially if they don't use school uniforms or have ecchi in the anime. Japan panicking much, it doesn't say all school comedies banned.

Looks like Kagamine twins, except they are all girls...

I thought so too.

I want to believe that this will be good because the character designs are pretty. Won't know until it airs and I try it out though.

Well I approve of making an original anime. It is certainly better than grabbing up a good manga and screwing it halfway to hell by deviating from the original storyline.(Bokurano, Rosario+vampire, etc)

I don't hate Gonzo. They did a great job with NHK, Saikano and Witchblade was also surprisingly good. Not to forget Gankutsuou. I am digging the character designs on this show. I cringe at the sight of "School comedy" but it would be interesting it this turned out to be a parody of typical shounens.

Well lets see how it turns out.

Who keeps giving Gonzo money?

this. I was hoping they stayed dead. :<
I thought they WERE dead. What happened to their financial trouble? As far as I'm aware, they didn't have a one-hit revival like Gainax and Square Enix.

as I recall the CGI in Last exile and Gankutsuou weren't that bad ,but those are the only exceptions

The character art doesn't seem right with the word comedy...

May 4, 2011 9:53 AM by Ovindel

I'll give this a shot.

May 4, 2011 9:44 AM by Dreadnaught_500

cool i guess... i still have faith in gonzo :/

May 4, 2011 9:19 AM by Neverarine

I sorta dig the character art. I thoroughly enjoyed Seto no Hanayome and Welcome to the NHK from Gonzo so I believe they make something decent.(I also liked their takes on Kiddy Grade and Blue Drop although they were not as great) .
