Loved the promo for Last Exile and both versions of Deadman Wonderland.

I am so glad that Kuroishi is back to doing the music for the new Last Exile series. She did an awesome job with the 2003 series.

That opening to Deadman Wonderland is awful. At least they kept the tone of the manga though, which is interesting since it takes place around an earthquake.

Even though I'm a pretty big space sci-fi junkie, the To trailer worries me. Welcome to the epic anime where we launch a cargo container! I don't know if I'm more worried that they had that much footage of the launch to use, or that they chose not to use anything else.

Yay I like the Deadman Wonderman ending song. It reminds me of the first D.gray-man ending, and yes, I know it's the same singer.

Man, I'm quite disappointed with most openings and endings this season. Nothing exciting so far.

Very excited to see Last Exile come back-doesn't appear to be a direct sequel though.

Never heard of Deadman Wonderland until this article, but the trailer got me interested enough to at least check it out when it airs.

I definitely squeed during that Last Exile trailer, so far it looks amazing! And the English in the Deadman Wonderland OP was also pretty amazing, I would've sworn that was an American band if I didn't know.

That's because ANN only posted some random clip from the movie. This is more of a trailer for TO.

Okay, I'll be the first to say it. I'm slightly hesitant for the new Last Exile show. Slightly! There is obviously some hint of moe smell in this show this time around what with the all female main cast (well only 3 or 4 so far) and the fact Aki Toyosaki of all people is playing the main character. Not that I think Aki Toyosaki is a bad actress, it's just I'm getting a bit tired of her being suddenly all over the place in certain types of shows. I dunno. Maybe I'm not worried as much for the show as I am worried about how much times have changed since 2003 in terms of what is even considered appealing in anime.

BUT that being said, I am still super excited for this show. I can't exactly tell by just this teaser trailer or the character models on the website if this is suppose to be a sequel or a spin-off or what, but more of the Last Exile storyline, the fantasy setting and vanship races/dogfights are all a plus in my book. I hope someone from ANN gets some coverage of the show that I think is suppose to premiere at Anime expo.

I'd never heard of Deadman Wonderland before. My impression was that it was Rainbow + The Running Man. Not too keen on the art for that one chick though. Also, what is up with the main character able to use his blood as a weapon? Is he Chouji Suitenguu jr?

I think I'll give this show a shot.

To looks good, it makes me wonder what Planetes could have looked like with a higher budget & HD. Sadly, To seems to be very soft scifi from that trailer, a far cry short of Planetes.
(BTW, those containers fired from the "midnight bazooka" were gargantuan, and more were fired than could fit on the space station itself...and they didn't mention how their trajectory deals with orbits)

I still haven't finished the original Last Exile. I was also hoping that the pre-moe revolution art would be preserved, but there's moe aplenty in the trailer.

Last Exile's score was a huge component of the original series for me, so I'm pretty thrilled at the prospect of the same composer the second time around. Actively trying to squelch the little voice that says that Alex Row and Dio had a love child who lost an eye... yeah, been a long week.

I'd say it's closer to Fullmetal Alchemist, but way more violent. The manga is really good.
