The director is the creator of Higashi no Eden AND the music is by the person who did Psycho Pass? I'm sold.

This "STEVE N' STEVEN" looks weird. According to the news article in the source its "joint CEO" are Production I.G. and Kamiyama Kenji. Now we have a company as CEO and also the director of the anime as the other CEO. It is difficult for me to take this company seriously. Does it really exist?

The power of science. On another note though, that is one hell of a website.
