This is a type of show i would really check out as an anime. It's way too serious as a manga :D
Trailer gives a nice impression. I just hope the story keeps interesting. Has Berserk vibes.

Same. A lot of people hyping this up but I don't see the hype.

Oh, this is 2-cour? So they'll probably do the entire "prologue" arc I'm guessing.

Not impressed by the 3 episodes in a day thing when half the art consists of terrible 3DCG. Also expecting their "let's narrate this for a few minutes using a couple of still images"-trick. But it's not full 3DCG like Berserk at the very least, so that's something.

Dayuumm son! Three episodes in one day?!?!?

Christmas comes early this year!

Just a repost from another forum...

July 7, it’s just over a month away from now! More excited with the first three episodes airing together, it’ll surely set the tone for the remaining episodes to come and deliver!
A little disheartening that Amazon Prime Video has got the rights for this series but I hope they’ll deliver more consisitently this time!

Anyway, that aside, didn’t really like the Op much especially towards the end of the PV 3. It’s got a fine tune though but well who knows maybe it’ll just grow on me with time. But for some reason, I was expecting a banger(something groundbreaking like Unravel or Guren no Yuima level) so I can’t deny I’m a little disappointed of sorts.

Still highly looking forward to the show nevertheless!

Three episodes in one sitting? Oh man. What did we do to deserve you Wit.

Three episodes in one day? Best news I heard today!

Looks like they are ahead of schedule if they can debut 3 episodes in 1 day. Wit def is a strong ass studio that can do high quality action anime and make it look consistent. I am glad they have another strong source material to work with.
