Pretty smart thing they did. I even thought it was something official.

That's pretty neat, nice find. I didn't even know there was a 3rd novel.

Oh trust me, I wish I never watched it either.

But if I find something wrong with the MC of a show, you're damn right that I'm going to bitch about it. After all, the Main character should be the most important part of the story. So if they fuck that up.. well, the shows already sub-par.

Despite KyoAni's recent history of awful works I'll give this a go due to the director.

>Immortal male MC

Wonder how many times he's going to be stabbed, or otherwise torturously maimed just for the purpose of gore-fanservice and/or comedy.

Looks like Dokuro-chan left a serious trauma on you.

I wish he never watched that, so we don't have to suffer through his constant bitching regarding anything even remotely relevant to male MC's.

OT: This looks promising and with Chu2 coming too, I'm starting to like Kyo ani, the character designs are amazing and a bit more original and less generic. A lot of anime to look forward to in general.

can't wait for this ^_^ definately in the top 5 (of 25) anime i plan to watch this fall

Sep 22, 2013 6:19 AM by smilewolfy

I'm really looking forward to this! The siblings interest me the most ^_^

Time to create the folder, there are already plenty of beautiful images to save. KyoAni is doing a really good job at keeping fans' interest (unlike it was for Tamako Market). We keep hearing about KnK and every time something nice is revealed. Can't wait for this show, Fall will be good.

BTW, to anyone complaining about similar designs in KyoAni shows... http://i7.minus.com/ipicoN8KfCNDz.jpg

Really cool image there, and a good first impression on what the viewer can expect from the series.
