Yeah...this definitely feels like Attack on Titan with the trailer. The music seems nice though.

noitaminA continues to mainstreamize...

Doesn't look too bad, but not like something special either. Action-focused, dark, dramatic with you typical serious shounen cast. Might be fun.

Hope Sawano doesn't overdo it, and since many of his works sound very similar, I also hope he tries a different style. (Probably won't happen.) The trailer music sounds good, but generic.

I'll probably watch this.

It looks great. Amazing production value and effort in terms of visual performances.

Yes the team decided to emulate "Attack On Titan`s" formula and mix it up a bit. Though I can see it being another hit of done right.

Looks like it should be entertaining. Plus we need more steampunk.

Exactly what I wanted to say.

Not exactly what I wanted to say.

They're basically emphasizing the fact that it's the 'team behind Attack on Titan', so obviously it's going to be similar. I don't see that as a bad thing though. If done right, this might inspire even more 'trapped behind walls' stories, and eventually turn into a formidable sub-genre of its own. Almost like 'heroes in school' of shounen, which all have similar plot elements to it (Also, how many Apocalyptic american movies have been made already and are still being made? It's because it's popular!)

Anyway, I'm looking forward to see what this staff will do with this story.

Wow, those are really old-school looking character designs. Combine that with Studio Wit, and it's definitely something I'd look forward to.

We Need more Steampunk anime...we have not had a real good one...(not counting the recent film) in years.

That Locomotive looks so freak-in sick man...it is a real beast and love the designs truly amazing..i cant wait to see this.

This and Big order are my two most anticipated new anime of 2016 Very Happy

Thank God we're finally getting the Attack on Titan/Rail Wars crossover we were all clamouring for. About time.
