Lerche? The ones responsible for those awful Danganronpa and Majikoi adaptations? Well, this kind of ruined my day.

if anything, i'll read a few chapters of the manga, then i'll watch it. i'm kind of iffy about this, since the whole moe + grimdarkness combo isn't really my thing, but whatever.

just curious but did you read the manga?

I didn't. I'm judging this without having seen any prior content. no mercy!

judging the book by its cover usually works quite well for anime. quite the transparent medium that rarely hides its target audience.


I would agree in this case if I hadn't read the manga. If I hadn't known a while ago that they were making an anime adaptation of this I had never known this manga existed nor would have ever thought of reading it but I did and it surprised me for how actually decent it was.

I understand where you're coming from but completly judging something without much knowledge about it can be quite unfair.

Yes, the style is quite cute and the idea of 'cute girls killing zombies etc' may look dumb but it all depends how the content is done. So far, I would say they're doing quite well.

Truth is all comes down to preferences in the end...

I can live with lack of knowledge. one cannot know everything. I do however know that this show will suck due to its dumb plot, setting, inexperienced director and genre mix~ which is my main point here. other ppl were twisting my words around as if I said studio was everything.

I also never said I choose anime by studio...you implied that. pretty randomly even.

Yet this show won't be about characters from another franchise goofing around and it isn't a generic light novel, what's your point?

it will however be about 13 year old cute girls in a survival school setting. *sigh*

you saw my original post right? Synopsis sounds retarded and it's done by a studio that hasn't done anything of worth yet which indicates that they have poor decision making in terms of staff

>Implying the studio gets to choose the director, script writer and other important roles in adaptations.

You're really showing a lack of knowledge.

No but it's a factor ofc. I said that I find the synopsis retarded right? please apply your reading comprehension skills.

I was not responding to that part of your poist, genius.

i remmember hearing the synopsis of it awhile ago and gave it a bit of a read, its really kind of a waste, its got a bad sense of humor and never knows when to use it which leads into it significantly weakening the horror and psychological aspect. It just felt very sloppy from what i read of it and felt kind of all over the place for when it tried getting dark

seen Lerche's output. most of it sucks. Fate spin offs without any substance, Danganshitpa, maji watashi koi, machine doll, second hamatora.

no they suck alright. The currently airing AssClass is prob their best work and I still find it meh.

Gave them plenty of chance~

You pick your anime based on the studio and not the director/source material?


Hah!

Also it's not like as if the director for this has an impressive record or something...

I'm hype as shit
Been waiting for this for a while :D

Feb 23, 2015 1:45 PM by ZachM

Ah, i almost forgot about this one.Not too excited because of the premise, but will check it out anyway and simply drop if i don't like it.It's very unlikely, but it might be at least entertaining.

Feb 23, 2015 12:12 PM by iLostReason

The manga isn't anything incredible, but it's really entertaining and keeps you guessing at what will happen next. I'm looking forward to this one.

Feb 23, 2015 11:57 AM by NlSHlKlN0

SO. HYPED.

I actually really like the Manga, so I hope the Anime adaptation does it justice.

so you say it has nothing to do with the studio when they are the ones who decide what to adapt and whom to give the project to? lol?


carnival phantasm is for type moon fans who enjoy their characters goofing around and machine doll was a generic light novel adaptation with ultra bland characters and little to no story...

At first, I was thinking, "Maybe I can try to watch it..." but then I gave it some extra thought, and in the end, I decided, "Nah, I'm out."

And I realized that not very many upcoming anime have piqued my interest lately. Although, I guess that's a good thing, because of how overwhelmed I get with watching so much anime at once. ^^;

I can already hear the complaints how annoying Yuki is. This should be a great show.
