Hell no, TOEI? what a dissappointment
Toei were responsible for Mononoke as well, and that sure didn't stop it from being one of the best mystery anime I have seen. You should watch it sometime.

Besides, if you watched the trailer, the art is more like a Studio 4°C anime anyway.

This is going to be awesome. I hope the animation will be as beautiful as Mononoke's. The premise sounds also very promising. It reminds me a bit of Franken Fran.

Sold. noitaminA delivers once again. This automatically wins.

Oh, yeah, and the whole eccentric psychiatrist thing sounds interesting, too.

Best news I've heard since Despera.

Now this sound super interesting.. I'm keeping an eye on it.

Best anime related news I've heard in a long time. I've been hoping Nakamura would be put at the helm of another good looking project for a while now, but I didn't necessarily expect him to be working with Hashimoto again. Plus the synopsis is promising both because it sounds like it will make for an interesting premise and because it won't just be more generic crap or an adaptation of some light novel/manga. Good times.

Jul 7, 2009 10:45 AM by Absolutely_Steve

Sounds interesting. I might watch it.

Jul 7, 2009 8:46 AM by Eternal_Blaze

Sounds interesting ...

Jul 7, 2009 6:26 AM by stfngp

Well...I wonder how did people come with Mononoke comparison. This show will have nothing in common with Mononoke (except probably the animation technique, as I mentioned before, since the main staff is the same).

Jul 7, 2009 5:21 AM by seishi-sama

I enjoyed Mononoke and I like eccentric characters so I will probably watch this.

Jul 7, 2009 4:45 AM by Rosa_FOEtida

Sounds interesting **.
