Somehow I feel like this will be a 2-cour. Yeah, I'm definitely getting some Attack on Titan vibes from the PV.

Yep...i feel like this is just a bit of a teaser before Attack on Titan airs....My bet is that..this will be 2 cour and AOT S2 will air most likely in the fall after studio wit finishes producing this one.

Can't wait for this one. Wit, huh? That reminds me I need to finish Seraph, and finally pick up Attack on Titan.

I got a feeling that this gonna have only 12-13episodes though and with summer with get AoT s2 then i just kinda think that summer is the best termin for it, we have waited too long anyway already for this next season >-<

I hope this good since it's apparently been keeping Mikimoto from working on his Macross The First manga which has been on hiatus since last May!

The fact that the visuals, settings, animation studio, staff, and some of the seiyū are shared with those of Shingeki no Kyojin, referring to it with the tagline of "of the people who brought you..." only shadows this project even more, IMO.

This looks... kinda try hard to me honestly. Yeah it looks nice visually but the attack on titan vibes are so strong it's kind of over whelming. It looks to be more of a zombie survival than "we puny humans against giant monsters" but it seems like some people just got to gather and said "F it, lets make a steam punk show." I think in that sense it'd be worth watching and it can prove me wrong but I'm not expecting much but flashiness out of this.

I like the look of this. The whole AoT team isn't a draw for me, as I only got through about 8 episodes of that show. Now that I think of it, I may have dropped every Wit show I tried out...AoT, Hozuki, Seraph, Rolling Girls...yep, dropped them all.

So, hopefully, I do enjoy this one. And, thus, making it the only Wit anime series I watch the whole way through.

No way an anime original with this high a budget would get 2 cours straight up from the get go. Maybe if the first cour is successful we may get more, but for this series, even 1 cour is quite risky.

I'm sure they're confident that the series will do well and gain popularity, given the budget and who's working on it, but there is always a major risk for an original anime series this high budget

From what I heard somewhere in a Japanese website a few months ago, it's pretty much confirmed to be 2-cour, meaning there's a strong chance that AoT's second season will air this autumn.

Those Mikimoto designs are bring back the 80s hardcore, I'm digging that. Looks great, just what the steampunkers want.
