I'll admit, I was a little bit hesitant about the anime, but now I'm rather excited! The trailer looks good!!

Hmm. My favorite seiyu, followed by Lelouch's seiyu, A-1, and DTB's director. This is gonna be a lot better than I first thought.

Alright! The animation looks pretty solid, and the character designs are a slight improvement over the manga. Having the director behind Darker than Black is also a plus.

Sheesh, between this Deadman Wonderland and Toriko, Spring 2011 is shaping up to be epic!

I'm excited! No Studio Pierrot and they have a director with a great track record. I'm assuming Viz will simulcast it since they'll be releasing the manga the same month the anime premieres. Seems likely.

The manga's character designs are clearly better then what is seen in the trailer of the anime..but the music played in the trailer was great..hopefully the anime will have a soundtrack similar to that..this is without a doubt a must watch for me..I'm a fan of the manga so I'm quite curious how this is going to turn out..I'm looking forward to it.

Looks purty cool! Wish it was starting in January instead of March. Agree on the music in that trailer; quite kick-ass.

(huggles Ao no Exorcist shikishi board) Eeeee! And A-1 Pictures is doing the animation work. It probably wouldn't have been my first choice, but, definitely not my last.

I'll be looking forward to watching the series in April.

I really love the manga, but I don't know about the anime. For me, it all depends on the monster designs and how well the fight scenes are portrayed.

I hope VIZ or someone simulcasts this one. I quite enjoy this series, and already plan to get the manga. Having the anime and manga would be wonderful~

Art style reminds me of Fullmetal Alchemist for some reason. The will probably be on my spring watch list.

Yeah, this is one heck of a staff, I love this director's work!
Also Keigo Sasaki's character designs for Senkou no Night Raid were great as has been Hiroyuki Sawano's awesome score for Gundam Unicorn.
Already seeing their influence in the extra polish of this cool trailer and art, looking forward to it now.

I had no idea this was going to be so big, this just jumped up my list of anticipated upcoming anime with this trailer and the staff they've assembled for this thing.

Tensai Okamura's been really good at delivering action scenes so I'd be extremely surprised if they are not well portrayed. Smile

Agreed, it sounded interesting and I was going to check it out but this show just became a whole lot bigger than I expected knowing that DTB and Wolf's Rain's director's doing this and they've got a great crew and great VAs on board.

This looks insane and I'll be watching. One thing I saw in the trailer is a character looking exactly like Gray in Fairy Tail, eh? >.<

This series isn't starting in March, it's starting in April.
