It looks ok so I will maybe, probably, most likely watch it.

Plot sounds interesting. Kind of like a cross between Bebop and Rakuen Tsuhio (bounty hunters/not giving a fuck about modern tech) plus GITS and Horizon (Body augments and androids + powers with unlimited potential).

People may not like Sora no Method, but I personally enjoyed it. Had fantastic art, the OST was solid, and at least SOME of the characters were likeable.

As long as they can learn from their mistakes this has potential to be extremely awesome.

very promising staff. the show itself doesn't look too hot though. those cute little girls feel kinda out of place.

Sort of feels like a more serious version of Space Dandy? Not really the synopsis just based on how things look in the video. Anyways, this looks interesting so I will watch it.

I'm totally not getting a Space Dandy vibe from things at all.

Maybe more like... a bit of Psycho Pass combined with Sword Art Online or something.

In any case, the show looks kind of lame. I'm really not diggin' the character designs.

Why? Why FUNimation does not make the video clips available in my country? T_T However, just a few days ago I was reading this manga.

Jul 4, 2015 9:34 AM by terrablu2003

Does anyone else think it's going to premiere on Toonami before it premieres in Japan, just like what happened with Space Dandy?

Jul 4, 2015 8:22 AM by HidamariSeashore

holy shit, reallly?

When?

honestly is seems a bit premature (unless they're doing an other of those 13 eps series, bleh, a 24+ episodes would fit best for this kind of serie)
and the source is far from being masterpiece material, so not going into this with high expectations for sure
but i'm still very surprised it's getting animated :D

Nice! The Manga is on my plan to read and it looks good.

Jul 4, 2015 6:42 AM by Tengai

Wow, for the first time in my life a manga i'm currently reading is getting an anime, not sure how to react.

The manga is far from being Iwahara's best work, i'd have preferred to see a proper adaptation of King of Thorns instead.

You can watch it here instead
