That's a great premise, and with writers like that it's doomed. I'll give it a look as and when, but it actually being good is almost as likely as Naruto never having any more fillers. I suppose I ought not to be surprised by tokusatsu writers also writing anime, but in fact it explains an awful lot about why a lot of action stuff is as dire as it is.

This made me laugh inside a little.

Title sounds nice.

Sounds interesting but I won't get my hopes up

It sounds like a good venture but I bet this would be a futuristic setting due to influences by Blassreiter and Souko no Strain.

That sounds terrible.

Doesn't sound that promising...

I'll watch this depending on what studio animates it. If it's Madhouse I'll check it out, if it's Gonzo I'll leave it in the trash. ^_^

Hm I have mixed feeling of this.

One one hand, story premise is great, i love such types of stories, on other hand, it all depends on execution..

To-aru-whatever was a pure garbage, but I LOVED Soukyou no Strain, so I think I'll try this one when it comes out

Might be interesting. Would have to see some images before being sure, though :o

I like the sound of the title. That's the only thing I can say about it for now :]

To Aru Majutsu no Index has too much talking.
Soukou no Strain was horrible.
Inuyasha and Blassreiter aren't exactly the best either.

Doesn't sound all that appealing so far.

I have no idea of what their story quality is, but I like the sound of it.

Actually, these four writers are the script writer team of Ultraman Mebius.

Eh, the script writer of Blassreiter? I'll stay skeptical.

Oct 31, 2008 5:11 AM by cyruz

Sounds interesting. I'll wait until posters/promotionals come out, to see if I'll watch it.
