Tomohiko Itou with Yukiko Horiguchi is already huh enough. Feel like this will get reasonable hype like Erased. I truly wonder . . . .

so this is what Itou left SAO for
A really shame too, I have to say.

Horiguchi's designs in a CG movie? Man, talk about wasted potential.

Ohhh? So aside from Itou, the writer of Kado is participating in this. Not gonna lie, this is surprising to see.

I may be the only one here that I think the ending of Sekaisuru Kado actually fits in context of the series as a whole... maybe.

Well, at least it can't be worse than Sword Art Online.

Oh, this is interesting!
I’ll definitely get around to watch this!

I have nothing against the Sword Art Online franchise, so I have no issues with the director whatsoever. Quite the staff though, I must say. Studio Graphinica is one of many Studio that I haven’t seen much of shows from, but those that I’ve watched, such as Hellsing Ultimate, Juuni Taisen are the currently ongoing SSSS. Gridman have been really good shows.

Thats an interesting mix of staff.

Not gonna trust it tho because Kado ended up being a trainwreck at the end.
