Yuki and Gen. Hopefully it’s more Fate/Zero and less Aldnoah.Zero.

Are we get a plot twist, like in his previous works such as Gaim, Puella Madoka & Fate/0 ?

I don't know why but when I saw the words "dragon desing" on screen watching the reveal I burst out in laughter. The movie has a lot of cool names attached to it.

The male main character looks the same as any other male character desinged by Takashi Takeuchi, which is to be expected because all of his desings have the same four faces anyway. If only the male main character didn't have the same haircut as any of the other Type-Moon male mc's. Anyway really looking forward to this.

So dragon and airplanes... Intriguing

I watched the Godzilla anime trilogy, so I gotta ask: is this gonna be dark and gritty almost to the point of misanthropy? Because if it is, I will sit this one out.

I'll take the sincerity of Genndy Tartakovsky over the cynicism of Gen Urobuchi, any day, no questions asked.

Go watch Primal. It's much better than the Godzilla anime trilogy.

This needs a game badly, I for one would love a fantasy Air Strike Patrol or Ace Combat where you can fight dragons in modern aircraft.

Hisone to Maso-tan but less moe and more suffering.

So Gen Urobuchi plus drakengard equals this interesting.

The visual looks appealing

Sep 24, 5:19 AM by CQLLIST

Looks beautiful... I will be watching.

A-1, Gen Urobuchi, Yuki Kajiura. Hmm, interesting.

It's from Gen Urobuchi, so should be a good watch.

Sep 24, 4:09 AM by MegamiRem

The OST is so distinctly Yuki Kajiura. Takashi Takeuchi art style is also recognisable.

Sep 24, 4:02 AM by E-Lias

Never heard of this Urobuchi thing. Seems interesting. Will look forward to it.

Now, this is some hype stuff. Kajiura and Mizushima also on this.

Sep 24, 3:18 AM by Etherius_ZS

Great news!

It looks gorgeous! Feels like I watch Fate with dragons!

Takeuchi designs and Kajiura awesome music are a sure win!

Thats what I want to know as well. Is it as dark as his other works. If so then this looks interesting.


And his magnum opus as a writer for VN still hasn't even got an OVA.

Are you talking about saya no uta. That stuff is gruesome and scary.

Sep 24, 3:01 AM by FZREMAKE

How much does this match Gen's favorite cliches? Innocent character suffering, existential villains, grimdark, lesbian fanservice? In any case, it's interesting that it got an adaptation after 10+ years.
