Director: Yoichi Fujita (Gintama')

Sounds stupid, but I'm a classical music nerd so I'm in. Mecha Beethoven~

I'm a sucker for anime with classical music, meaning if this one messes with said music, it shall burn.

But messing around aside, it looks more like it will be genuinely bad as the concept is so out of left field, trying to be hip and whatnot, that it's practically doomed from the get go.

This better be some respectable show.

Well, I'm on board.

If its the same director as Gintama and its tagged as comedy this pretty much confirms its going to be a parody

Jul 3, 2015 11:16 AM by Roloko

It sure sounds... interesting.

But I'll probably try it.
