The visuals look great, though not surprising given the staff. Heard great things about the mango. Hopefully they don't fuck the story up.

A curious concept with some beautiful animation.

The visuals seem surprisingly close to the source; I thought they would change that to some degree. But in that regard Kenichi Konishi as the animation director is a pretty good fit. I really hope they can uphold this level of visuals.

The manga cover this is based on looks so familiar to me. I feel like I read some of this when I was younger.

Oh boy, the cast and the visuals looks great!

Definitely looking forward to it! I haven’t watched a Studio 4’C show yet but I have heard a lot of things about some of their shows, so I’m looking forward more to seeing one of their works!

This movie seems to be very promising.
I've my hopes up for it. Especially the character designs look gorgeous, and having someone as proficient as Kenichi Konishi responsible for animation direction, on top of that, is a good sign for the whole movie to become a visual feast, I'd say.
