Not in love with the character designs or music, looks and sounds a bit old school to me, could please TTGL fans I guess.

An over the top school battle anime. I've been in since they first announced this. I really like the character designs so far.

I'm kinda lukewarm on it.. not digging the character designs at all. I'll try it but my expectations aren't very high.

That's just the theme song, the actual music's being composed by Hiroyuki Sawano (Guilty Crown, Attack on Titan)

Well I'm digging the character designs myself I prefer that look to a lot of the more "meh" designs on character's I've seen recently.

Seems to be better than 100% of modern TV anime, today. Especially that thing you have as your avatar.

So it's the best thing ever made for the last for few years?

In terms of art, it's better than anything TV related from the 2010s. Gundam UC still has the best overall.

I love how in one thread YamadaKun proclaims "Hand drawn animation in Japan ended in 1999" and here praises a show that's 100% hand drawn. Smile

He means hand-painted images on cels. Drawing on paper is still how things are done first in production of a scene, after storyboarding, script, etc.

No, because one is a terrible low quality shot and the other is promo art.

She's kinda hot, actually. Now, she's no Tifa*, mind you, but that actually made me smile!
