Nill? voiced?? OO:
Yeah, isn't she the mute girl? In the manga, the best she can do is some sort of choking sound.

Hope they animate those psycho twins ^^

I went through most of the first one and the scanlators had decided to omit punctuation, it drove me mad.


And raws are practically non-existent. Oh well.

Delightful cast. I just hope the stuff knows what it's doing, since I wasn't very fond of the other serieses mentioned above. /:

great cast as well, my favourite character is voiced by my favourite seiyuu!
Haine Rammsteiner: Sakurai, Takahiro <3

Considering the small number of the manga episodes published so far, this will be an OVA. I'm not sure how well david production can perform as an original contractor for the first time.

Nov 19, 2008 2:23 AM by dtshyk

Not sure what the anime is about, except that it takes place somewhere in Europe and the story is relevant to both genetic engineering and the underworld.

The seiyuu cast on the other hand is pretty good:

Haine Rammsteiner: Sakurai, Takahiro (Suzaku - Code Geass)
Badō Nails: Ishida, Akira (Athrun - Gundam SEED)
Naoto Fuyumine: Itou, Shizuka (Tama-nee - To Heart 2)
Nill: Noto, Mamiko (Kotomi - Clannad)
Kiri: Ohara, Sayaka (Milly - Code Geass)

FUCK YES!!!!!!!!

please please please let it be done by Madhouse!!

Nov 18, 2008 11:23 PM by chryseis

Finally it's getting animated.
And agree with most others; they better not mess this up!! I'll probably like this news more after I hear which company will animate it...

Nov 18, 2008 11:21 PM by Monochrome

I am definitely going to watch this, but like said before i don't want them to mess this up. It could easily become one of the best animes.
