the art looks like K a lot.

Another f@cking loli heroine who will have the mentality of a 5 year old. I seriously wonder why the Japanese find that shit appealing.

I don't like the synopsis at all, but the visuals look great.

Also who else is betting the protag's gonna be voiced by either Saito Soma or Kobayashi Yusuke?

I.... don't know what I have to say. It looks bad but I'm interested?

The promo artwork looked interesting but unfortunately the PV looks and sounds exactly like the second season of K. (including the absurd jiggly boobs... D: )
I loved the first season of K and put the second on hold because the style and animation got so much worse. Also couldn't stand how slutty the girls were portrayed.
This series appears to be going the same route.

The theme also seems somewhat similar to the Damocles swords of the kings. Is it really a spinoff?

All star seiyuu cast + nice animation + not-so-promising story = looks like we will be getting Guilty Crown v.2 here.

So just looking at 'em fighting and enjoying the superb voice acting while ignoring the plot will be how I watch this anime, probably.

BTW, the plot is too damn similar to Fate Stay Night as well, another Holy Grail War with a different name?

The premise isn't that interesting but execution may differ. Art style is weird . But that cast though kayano ai, risa taneda, and amamiya sora all 3 of my favorites in this lol

The premise may suck thanks to other anime of recent times but dem animation is mint.
(Unless you're a 3DCG anti, of course.)

Premise is just premise. Who knows what will come?
At the least I'll wait for more PV.

Yes, there's pretty art + cool cast lineup, but the camera movement is just... ew

Well, if nothing else, there's Hayami Saori

Idk man, I'll check it out.. the badass twintail grill dressed in red did it for me.

Jul 17, 1:39 AM by Hatsuyuki

Art style and Ost's are just screaming "K" I'm still going to watch regardless of that divine gate plot maybe its going to be better than Divine Gate.Btw is it just me or is that kid holding a mini sword of damocles.

Jul 17, 1:21 AM by zurgboy00

Just GoHands being GoHands
premise seems meh af and sounds like another trainwreck like Divine Gate

i can already predict that Sugita will be the dude with glasses
hes pretty much the guy whos typecasted as these kinds of characters

Jul 16, 11:52 PM by DatRandomDude

I honestly want another battle survival... But not this... Not likethis... Even syd sequel is more welcomed... But i already get ova anyways... Thanks go hand..

"To have their own wish come true..."

Okay anything that requires fighting to get wishes granted is going to be terrible. Divine Gate again?

I'm watching this with morbid curiosity. It looks like an abomination artistically but simultaneously super-impressive animation-wise, and I can't shake the Exist Archive/Valkyrie Profile vibes.

Jul 16, 3:45 PM by VyseLegendaire

Ok, this is going to be terrible.

There is one problem with GoHands. I hate their art style and animation, it's ugly as hell.
I dropped second season of K because my eyes were bleeding.
Mardock Scramble was interesting, but art and animation were trashy too.
I'm scared to watch anything else from them.
And this PV? 90%= 3DCG shit.
The worst part starts from 1:00 where even characters were made in 3D. Uber shit, even if story will be interesting, I won't watch it.
