Sounds like a lot of fun. The concept echoes Shingu and Yokohama Kaidaishi Kikou, but I'm hoping for lots of random WTF-ness soon!

With the little available information, it is difficult to determine what kind of anime will it be. Without any knowledge of the character designs or the seiyuu cast, I cannot say that I look forward to it.

Yay! I'll give anything from SHAFT a good chance. :D

Created by Harima and directed by the dude that did Hidamari Sketch & SZS. I'll watch it.
