Not bad news in the slightest, but now I worry about streaming availability for Latin American audiences. Hopefully this'll turnout like Free! & Yona of the Dawn on CR.

I feel like a lot of shows in recent years take the structure of "interesting sci-fi/fantasy premise -----> troupe of cute marketable moe girls"

It always makes me assume someone behind the project was actually passionate about the first part and tacked on the second in order to get it funded, but maybe that's just me being cynical.

I've never heard of this, but the name immediately made me think of The Blue Hearts song "The Rolling Man", so it's SUPER WEIRD that the theme song is a cover of an entirely unrelated song by The Blue Hearts.

Serial killers + moe
Guns + moe
Apocalypse + moe
Tanks + moe
Giant monsters, giant robots; If you can name it, someone's tacked cute girls on it. This idea reminds me a bit of Mad Max and The Warriors movies, with girls naturally.

Japnal The only nation that can turn A Boy and His Dog into a Girl and Her Dog and Some More Girls While We're At It and get away with it.

No clue how this is going to turn out, but I surmise FUNimation wants to be in front of the line for anything coming out of WIT STUDIO (a la GONZO in the past)…
