Did anyone else see the title and read that as "Beatles" at first?

I didn't personally, but I saw someone else on another site commented saying they had read it as Beatles.

I read it as Breathless, and found myself thinking about what a Lupin movie directed by Hideaki Ano would be like.

dm: Lupin would mope and distance himself from his friends and give up stealing to major in Philosophy. Also, he'd refuse Fujiko's advances, 'cus he feels uncomfortable with how aggressive she is at times. Razz

Wow. This came from out of nowhere. I remember years back when Tokyo Otaku Mode provided English translations of the novels.

IIRC, it does. Maybe because of the character designs, it kinda starts with a Guilty Crown feel.

Darn. I'm happy with the director, but I'm not excited about the series composition. Still, I hope it's good.

I was thinking that they named the novel by sticking an "s" on Beatles if that's what you mean.

"Beings which you can not fathom are made out of material you couldn't possible understand by an Artificial Intelligence you can not possibly match for reasons that you don't know... yet."

It had me interested until the "yet"... wait, this isn't a series but a stand alone novel from 2012? Man, now I really don't get it....

Yes. When I saw this on the Crunchyroll article, someone else posted a similar statement.

Always looking forward to Mizushima's next directing projects so this is awesome news out of nowhere like BlueAlf said. The art looks real nice from here, the otaku mode character and translation page, and that otaku usa page.
