That was fast...but not really surprising. It's ranked consistently high in Jump Square's rankings so it was only a matter of time. I look forward to seeing it.

I wonder who's animating it though...Pierrot again?

I read this manga whenever it comes up, it has alot of great aspects to be a good story, I just hope they will do a good job in making the anime.

Interesting. Since he's the son of Satan I just hope they do formulate some religious discrimination against him; even if it's just one single episode/arc.

Wow! This is… surprising! But a very welcome surprise! I hope they get a solid crew working on it. I look forward to seeing this when it comes out!

Well, this is something to look forward to. Can't wait until Viz released the first volume in April! Wink

Geeze, I hope not.
There's so few chapters, though. This will be probably be quite filler laden and no longer than 26 episodes. But I hope it's good. I've been interested in this mangaka for a few years now(I'm still hoping someone will bring over Robo & Usakichi), so I'm glad to see her doing well.

26 episodes and full of filler? I think so.

Seriously, the series started in 2008. There's no way they'll be able to adapt this properly. Confused

More like 13 episodes and an OVA, looking to do a second season and a movie later on (if ratings are high enough). Filler episodes nowadays are reserved for big shots on the level of Naruto.

Tegami Bachi, another Jump SQ series, was 26 episodes and full of filler.

I hope Madhouse does the animation. They're very good with movement and I think that's essential considering how often Rin gets into fights.

I like the storyline - it has a lot of potential. Sometimes you just want an action packed adventure without a heavy dose of philosophy.

Egoist, at least in the manga, there is a lot of prejudice against Rin.

Since it might be a spoiler to some...

spoiler[When Rin's ability was discovered, several characters debating on killing him. Allowing him into the academy was not a popular idea. Rin's half-brothers either want to nurture him to see his potential or kill him, and Rin's own brother (Yukio) seems to be harboring a deep resentment because the girl he likes, Shiemi, notices Rin more than him.]

This looks pretty interesting. I might have to check it out. Maybe pick up a volume of the manga, when its available in English, to test the waters.

YES YES YES ROBO & USAKICHI IS MY FAVORITE. I dream of the day it's licensed and given a fantastic, gorgeous release.
