Yuuki reminds me of Raidou Kuzunoha of the Devil Summoner series. Looking forward to this.

GOSICK was boring, but I'll give this a chance

Being on Noitamina has me worried about the length. I love detective/mystery series which i hope this show is going to be primarily focused on but 11 episodes is too short for my liking. I really hope this gets atleast 24 or 26 episodes.

A historical anime from Bones... Sounds very promising.

Historical + Bones + Director of FMA (though Mizushima has his downs) + Script writer of FMA + Noitamina makes this a must-watch for the Fall season.

I have a thing for mysteries anyway.

Interesting, though that website is a bit empty now.

Hmmm... new anime from Noitamina huh, I'll definitely try this one out.
they did Eden of the East and The Tatami Galaxy, right?

noitaminA is not a distributor, or animation studio, or anything like that. It's a television programming block on Fuji TV, which airs anime that could be made by any group. For example, Yojouhan was animated by Madhouse. Higashi no Eden was animated by Production IG.

Being on noitaminA does not inherently mean anything other than that the committees behind the block think the show is appropriate for whatever audience they're trying to target at the moment. Staff, cast, genre, budget, studio, distributor et al are largely or completely independent of noitaminA the television slot.

ahhh.. I understand now, thank you. pardon my ignorance.

hope this is more than 11 episodes if that synopsis is indeed correct.

mizushima though... hmm. guess if the art is good i may check it out.

The website immediately reminded me of C. But, I guess I shouldn't be surprised since they're broad casted on the same channel.
Lets see, BONES, noitaminA, historical anime, and director of FMA? Count me in! =D

Seems interesting but Mizushima?...Meh.

Sounds amazing. I would check out every NoitaminA title without looking at the synopsis, but I would check this one out solely for the synopsis AND it's aired in noitamina, so it doesn't get much better :)

Scriptwriter: Aikawa Sho - Original Creator of Ayakashi Ayashi...

I really hope Bones don't half ass it like they did with that anime ^_-
