A court mystery? Sounds interesting.

I like his art but not a fan of that character design.

Interesting. Court mystery from Obata. Unfortunately, I can't stand waiting for ongoing manga, so either I'll have to wait an eternity for the manga to finish, or for some anime to come out.

I'm fine with Ohba not being involved. I realize this is an unpopular opinion, but I don't think Ohba is very good at writing characters. Obata's a good artist, so I'd be interested in seeing his work with someone else.

Anything by Takeshi Obata is worthy of attention, I guess. We'll see how it turns out.
I guess this also means there won't be a work done by the Death Note/Bakuman pair soon.

Anything from Obata is worth-watching, but I'm expecting a Ohba-Obata work.

Same here :/ Still, this might become the first Manga I will follow while it's still publishing. Who knows.....It looks interesting also.

Meh, I'd rather hear about the something from Ohba.

The art of Death Note and Bakuman were certainly good, but it's the story that punches you in the face.

Guess Ohba isn't going to be coming out with anything for a while? We'll see. I love Obata's art though. We already know that part is gonna be great.

I'm pumped now. I'm sure it's gonna be great!

That's pretty exciting :) Looking forward to it, sure it'll be awesome :D

I can already tell this'll be an epic series. It's Obata-sensei we're talking about here.
