I haven't even heard of this manga before, but it looks pretty awesome. May have to end up reading it before the movie.

There's a 90% chance I'll hate the main girl, what's-her-name. She annoyed the living hell outta me throughout the manga, and she has to be almost completely different in order for me to actually enjoy this movie.

I'll keep my expectations up, regardless.

Lol? NO NO NO. The story sounds(and is) like 7Seeds crossed with Blame

The story sounds good, but a movie...that sucks. Will probably end up either in a hardcore action or a meaningless mindfuck, and even Yamaguchi's involvement won't save it. :/

I never read that manga, but looks great.

Awesome! I really liked the manga when I read it. I hope they will be faithful to the manga story and feel, because it's excellent. ^^
