I know hardly anything about this LN, but I love survival games anime, and dark mahou shoujo anime, so definitely will give it a shot.

Most likely will watch. Expecting a flawed series, but I'll be happy if it can surprise me.

Also is it a given that mahou shoujo always pink/red? lol. Kaname Madoka, Yuuki Yuuna, Doremi, Haruna from kore wa zombie desu ka?, and now we have this girl.

That's SnowWhite, and like her name suggests, she's actually white rather than pink

However, the shadow colour for her clothes and hair used is often pink, hence the confusion (she often appear as light pink due to this). I think her hair is really somewhere between light grey and light pink though. But her clothes are white.
Here is a proper cosplay of SnowWhite :

Aww yiss... 2 of my favorite anime in one? (Mirai Nikki + Madoka Magica)? I hope there's despair. A lot of it. Please I need it.

Also Lerche made this. I hope they can make a wow episode 1 again like Gakkou Gurashi. They did a great job on that even though it differs from the manga.

Well probably because girls like pink, then I have nothing to say to that.

Not a fan of mahou shoujo but maybe I'll check this out.

Lerche is a good studio im excited for this

After Gakkou Gurashi last year, I think Lerche knows how to animate a dark series.

PTW it goes. Not gonna set any expectation. Series Composition/Script mostly done anime that is so-so to me but seeing Sky Girls is on the list of his work and along the fact that show has a nice tone of drama makes it interesting for me. Besides, GochiUsa was well directed especially second season so if theirs thing goes wrong on this, its probably interpretation of the script writer to the LN ideology.

The art is pretty much copy pasta of Madoka.

Leaving aside everything else, I can't believe someone is actually thinking that the art is similar to Madoka.
That's completely different lol...

Madoka + Hunger Games.

Because anime fandom usually eats up the death-game nonsense no matter what the quality is.

Either way nothing in waht is presented so far convinces me it will be anything good. The premise sounds edgy as hell for sake of edgy(and screams Okada's selector nonsense, which is never a good sign). The art is pretty much copy pasta of Madoka and the studio(Lerche literally only has Carnival Phantasm as something good) and writing staff inspires absolutely no confidence at all.

Been on my radar for quite a while..ever since i watched madoka magica i have been very interested in stories involving magical girls with a darker theme.

Part of this series is not just based on survival but also on the lust for power... these girls are special privileged in there society and when that privilege is threatened some of them go to extreme measures to preserve themselves of there position of it is not just a survival but also lust for power and how people can go to far for that. .. this should make for an interesting watch,

Survival is always interesting.

I hope it'll be as bad as game of laplace

Mar 24, 4:49 AM by Valkqt

Magical girls and survival... sounds perfect XD

Damn, just looked at twitter and the script writer said it would only cover volume 1 (+ the relevant chapters of volume 4).
So that's a good news for the anime since it will not be rushed, but that's a bad news for me. That means no PFLE, no shadowgale, and no werewolf game. And I'm not a huge fan of the first volume.
I know I should rejoice that another adaptation choose the path of being faithful, but that's an exception for me. I mainly like that title due to characters and stuff coming from volume 2 onward...

Wow i loved that Ost
plz be so Dark !!

Finally, after 6 months of silence we hear about this one.
Although the staff information is almost non-existent and that PV may as well not exist lol.
Most important is that it finally has its own website and that it's for 2016, I suppose.

Still waiting for PFLE and Shadowgale's seiyuu to be revealed (I have a feeling we won't have them until the anime have already started since they aren't appearing in the first few episodes anyway~)

Nice. Def gonna check it out when its gonna be released.
