It was astonishing until someone decided to put that generic song in the middle of it.Seriously it didn't correspond with most of those beautiful pictures at all!

I actually felt the opposite. It looked pretty boring and too full of serious stuff until the new music started, then it seemed better with more lighthearted stuff going on.

I'll give it a try but my hopes aren't too high. Doesn't seem like the type of show I'd like... too many weird and creepy things in that first half of that PV.

Why bother telling the story in three parts: when the characters are 12, 14 and 26 years old? From an anime perspective, the characters aren't going to look any different at 14 then they were at 12, so I'm not sure I see the point.

Well their characters might look same,but I am guessing their personalities will radically change.

Man I can't wait for October.

Those visuals really feel almost movie-like in style and coloring.

A-1 Pictures? Great. *groaaan*

Guess we can all look forward to another sub-only / bluray-only release from Aniplex that'll cost you your soul, your firstborn, and your left testicle. Rolling Eyes

You're acting like Aniplex is going to release this here directly for $400, like Fate/Zero. Um, which A-1 title as Aniplex released here, again? Oh, right, Blue Exorciste. And that was DVD only. I can't think of any other A-1 titles released by Aniplex USA.

About half oft A-1 Pictures titles have been released in R1 by NISA, and the other half are roughly evenly divided among Funi, Sentai, Nozomi, and Bandai, I think. Sure, the NISA ones were all sub-only, but most were BD/DVD combo sets along with one or two DVD-only titles.

Neither the NISA sets nor the one A-1 Pictures title release by Aniplex are remotely close to the obscene prices of Fate/Zero, which is clearly what you're referring to with those soul/firstborn comments.

Oh god, I'm hype as shit for this. Let's hope this show is as twisted and f*cked up as the beginning of the PV was.

This is the only upcoming thing that interests me. It's doing a lot of great things visually, and with the music (some of it), and I really like the very menacing tone it has.

A plus is that judging from some of the animation, it looks like Shingo Yamashita might be involved, which is a plus for me and other fans of him.

Well said.

I'm getting very excited for this series. The premise, the artwork, and those behind it, all of it is quite promising.
