Yes, been waiting forever for him to get a new voice role! One of the greatest and underused voices of anime IMO.

Not saying it was not legit but just expressing the interesting, even baffling, arrangement by Avex to distribute information ;-)

Looks like an official channel to me as I'm redirected to that channel uploaded videos from the movie page. Also at AGF today Hamatora stand showed the airing schedule to be 2014. I can't zoom more, but it's definitely at January according to visitors.

^ Interesting as the schedule information does not seem to be available in the PV or the official anime website. The account "Avex Other" that houses the PV is also interesting, as it has only 6 videos uploaded, quite a small number if it were used as an official account for Avex Group to upload videos.

This looks great visually so far so I'm pretty excited, plus that list of voice actors!

I like the coloring thing they got going on along with the animation, the fight scenes should be good.

BGM is retro groovy and the character design so shounen. At least I know the anime is to take place in Yokohama at present time.

I don't know if the kid is a boy or a girl, but they look good in dem shorts. The other characters are attractive as well.

According to the latest news with seiyuus comments, that's definitely a girl.
