First volume of the manga was kind of bad, quite boring.

Looks really interesting, it's a definite watch even though I don't really like CG.

I just felt the tiny bit of hope I had left in me die. Excuse me while I go pour bleach into my eyes.

Somehow, I think the animation style will fit to the movie format

So cg animation is cheaper than 2d?

Well I've already read the manga and the CGI is a huge turn-off so maybe not for me

FYI guys this is Polygon Pictures, the same people responsible for Sidonia as well as the Ghibli co-pro Ronja. So if you liked/disliked Sidonia's style, you'll probably be getting exactly the same thing with this.
