Cant wait to see what this is like. Really liked Mind Game and at the least Cat Soup was interesting.

Masaaki Yuasa + Madhouse + WOWOW = Solid Gold Oldies.

Yeah, I'm already excited, didn't think he would get another shot to do a tv series that soon. Masaaki Yuasa is truly one of the most brilliant and imaginative people in the business and it's nice to see that Madhouse continues to produce original high budget works by the likes of him or Iso. I kinda hope it will be a longer show, something like Noein's 24 episodes, just think of the possibilities.

I'm really looking forward to it. Masaaki Yuasa's work is truly one of a kind.
