The art looks fucking delicious. Not much else looks promising, but I can't understand Japanese so obviously what I took away is quite limited.

Do we know when the Blu-Ray will be released? Unfortunately I won't behaving a chance of seeing it in cinema.

I definitely interested in it, could be really good.


I second that, looks enough promising, at least from the trailer :3

I second all of this~ the trailer was great.


The pv looks amazing! I'm watching Mouryou no Hako and I have to say I really love the direction. I can't wait for this work to be out! :D

I'm not sure about this. I'll wait until I see a trailer, or at least some of the character designs.

Interesting director ( Aoi Bungaku Series & Mouryou no Hako <3), Sunrise <3 and a decent plot. What is not to like?
Plus, overused settings (school theme) are either a hit or miss so what is the problem?

May 8, 2012 10:14 AM by Valentiln

I am SO down for this movie. Plus it's Sunrise too! I just wish it could be an anime instead...

May 8, 2012 8:06 AM by itsvero

1970s sci fi is always great, the director is an interesting choice, and it's done by Sunrise...this has potential to be great.

But I'm still waiting for their official unveiling of G REKO. I truly want to see what kind of hilarity Tomino can bring in the 2010s.
