Seems very interesting and i like the trailer. This is hard core shit. Awesome. Definitely be anticipating for this. Hope the story is well made and not look like a complete mess. It's a trap directors fall for, trying to be mysterious and different.

Poor Gonzo.

>"oeuf coque"

Why do I suddenly feel like eating eggs...?

Sounds relevant to my interests. Murata Renji's design there looks awesome (as always), but I do hope they stick with the original style (any idea who's doing the adaptation?)

Oh, I remember this cancellation story etc. I wonder what studio will make it now. For some reason, I'd bet on Satelight.

Concept is interesting, if this ever gets made I guess I might give it a try
