Sherlock Holmes, Robinson Crusoe (crossed with James Bond), The Brothers Karamazov and one real-life person. That's quite the mix.


Also Watson. Looks like Sherlock got lost in the mix. I'm excited for these! They have potential. Now they just need to realise it.


I agree.Lets see how this one goes.

Having classical music play in the background made watching the trailer all the more enticing. I have high expectations from all three of the movies and cannot wait to watch every single one of them.

wOW

and that's how you fuck it all up

get a gay ass group to do the theme songs, get a bunch of overrated shitheads to voice the characters (Ootsuka excluded), and make the art look like generic shounen crap

Any idea of how long each movie will be? fulllength or maybe 50 minutes and under?
Probably full length, it's not the same guys making all movies.

Yay for EGOIST. The theme song in the PV doesn't sound really great to me but I hope the other two are great.

I'm really looking forward to these movies.
