MAPPA...with the director of Shoukoku no Altair...Altair was great, but it was rushed as hell...

Series composition by the same person who worked on Shingeki no Kyojin, Shakugan no Shana, Kakegurui, and Witchblade...

I'm kind of teetering between yes and no...but I do like Tezuka...wait...is this some sort of remake for his older series? Well then, all I need to know now is how many episodes it will be. If it's 12/13, then there better be a second season, or I'm going to see this being rushed as hell...

The pv seems fine.It could be a really good show or a mediocre one. Lets see how Mappa handles it. Imo Mappa is the best when it comes to unique anime nowadays so I'll trust them on this one

I doubt that Mappa is doing that much on this series considering that they have many projects for that season. It's probably Tezuka Productions which is doing the most, which isn't that unrealistic considering that they have involvement with every adaptation of Tezuka works.

Wait, I thought the visual style would be as unique & artistic as the teaser.


i mean keeping that art style and animation even for a movie.. it would have been an istant masterpiece.
blame the actual industry for avoiding art

Well this doesn't look bad staff wise although I will admit that the PV is underwhelming.

But hey, the staff is strong on this one I'll say that.

Looks different from the first teaser, but the staff is promising, so I'll keep my hopes high for this one.

I mean, sure we lost the unique look of the first PV but im not surprised that its not that in the end.

Still look pretty solid personally.

Same tbh, dunno how to feel now.

Would be suited if the last preview is as much gritty that it's bamboozled with Yuasa-like figure.. Meh.. this one seems cheap & mediocre

Huh? Looks pretty interesting too me. Will definitely be checking this out.

Wait, I thought the visual style would be as unique & artistic as the teaser. That's disappointing. The animation is fine, but the cinematography in the PV is average, not surprising considering the director. At least the screenwriter & composer are relatively solid.

That trailer looks really neat animationwise, not sure if I can get into the story though.
