Hm, seems interesting. I definitely loved the art they did for True Tears, so I might check this out. (Why haven't they done more series, I wonder..)

Because they are brand new and still establishing themselves. They have been doing some in between animation work for Bones with Soul Eater. Also P.A Works are prepping Canaan for release this summer/july.

That sounds great! I can't wait to see more of their stuff. Their style is very smooth. Canaan is already on my 'plan to watch' list.

Talking bout True Tears, does that city really exist or it's fictional?

Good place to go for sightseeing. One of the places you got to go before you die.
