I hope that Kiseijuu anime do it Madhouse, Production I.G or Artland.

I'm curious what they're going to do with the art style. Modern anime has become kinda of moe with huge eyes, pointy chins and skinny necks so I don't know what what they're going to do with this and how anime fans will react to the art. I don't see them going Aku no Hana with it though.

after so many years it gets a anime and live-action?
they will have to make a new character design since the maga looked so bad , but the story was pretty good.
to the live-action i already guess it will be horrible since the fights looked kinda weird in it , and the 3d effects will probably make it look ugly as hell.

Gave the manga a try a few years back. Only read a few chapters but it was good. I was just too lazy to follow it through.

Surprised at this announcement. Didn't think they would make an anime adaptation after so long. I hope there won't be censoring.

animation in style aku no hana? lol no. can't wait, manga is so awesome but if they plan make it 5 min. long like Pupa then they shouldn't make it at all.
