I see Type-Moon in there. The article doesn't state it but what kind of involvement do they have?

Style to spare, but I hope there's substance.

The lack of clothes is not very encouraging...
And only one male character?

There's at least the dude with the fedora and the skeleton. I'm not sure if the dark character in the hoodie is an androgynous man or an androgynous woman.

But both of those are positives.
In fact, here's hoping the male character isn't very prominent, which seems to be the case.

To you, perhaps. I'm very happy about the lack of clothes. give me plenty of fanservice and a great script from type-moon and my money is yours.

As Halloween is my favorite holiday, the Halloweeny vibe I'm getting from the character designs and the music is a plus. The director of Wolf's Rain and Blue Exorcist is a plus. The skeleton masked dude is a plus. On the other hand, the lack of clothing on some of the ladies is a minus. The loli in the middle is a minus and that there seems to be only two dudes is a minus (unless the witch-like person is a dude in a speedo-doubt it-and the person in all black is a dude too-also doubt it). Honestly though, it's really too early to tell what it'll be like but I'll keep an eye on it.

Why complain over the lack of guys?
And what's so bad about lolis?

Well for one I am chick so I'd like my eye candy too. I don't mind a large female cast I just like the number to be more even (especially when the character designs lean toward the fanservice side of things). Also considering some are finding it a positive that there is a lack of guys I see no problem with me finding it to be a negative. And for two, I don't find lolis all that appealing and I tend to drop series pretty quick if there is one involved for fanservice purposes so that might have something to do with why it would be a minus for me.

There are almost always more male than female characters in ensemble casts.

You'll survive having the opposite every so often.

Do you really think Okamura and Meteo Hoshizora would put a loli in their show just for fanservice's sake?
You can start complaining about the lack of eye candy for the female audience once the series starts airing and we find out just how much fanservice there really is.
