Not sure how I feel about this but the promo video has some potential. I wonder if this will be a 2 cour though.

The animation looks OK. The story previewed sounds like your regular "small country got invaded, but the survivors have strong weapons" plot. Depends on the execution of the story, it might be a noteworthy title within its genre (Kekkai Sensen) or fall back on the all-too-familiar tropes (Owari no Seraph).

It's based on five people playing a tabletop RPG. I expect a couple of good characters (apparently Narita and Nasu were into role-playing the most) and a bland story.

Not a fan of the character designs,but am a little interested in the story due to it being based tabletop sessions.Could either be good or really bad.

Animation looks a bit off. Otherwise it doesn't look too bad. Now it's up to the scripwriters. Good story = instant sell. Bad plot = wasted potential. Good luck.
