I'd been keeping an eye on the manga for almost 5 years - ever since stumbling upon the raws - hoping someone would scanlate it. I guess an anime adaptation's the next best thing. Looking forward to it!

If it wasn't obvious over the last couple of years, it should be 100% apparent by this point that behemoth international streaming sites like Amazon and Netflix, as well as the growth of Crunchyroll and the growth of international fandom as a whole has made a pretty drastic difference in the kind of content that can be adapted. No way in hell half of the stuff announced today by Twin Engine leading up to Anime Japan could've ever been made in like 2010.

You seem new to anime man, "this kind of content" was adapted more than once since the late 80s and begining of 90s, and example of that is lain was made in the 90s and the many experimental animes we got in that era, I see nothing different now beside anime having more fans than ever which doesn't play any role in what gets adapted, I just hope that this will open the opportunity for more experimental and different animes to get adapted.

I think you misunderstood my point. This kind of stuff would not have been made in the post bubble anime industry of the mid-to-late 2000s. That is my point. The market was forced to consolidate risk as much as possible and pander to the hardcore audiences, which meant primarily stuff targeting otaku, and generally just much less variety.
The growth of anime internationally, thanks to things like streaming, has allowed anime to expand beyond those niche audiences and once again target a more mainstream audience(like it tried to do in the 60s-the late-90s), in addition to facilitating more high risk niche projects.
There are still people complaining about anime being all moe, or otaku-bait, or whatever, even today, crazily enough, but each year since 2011, they've become more and more wrong.

I agree, not only the variety, the sheer amount of anime made today beats the post-bubble aughts. I only fear that this is a new Streaming Entertainment bubble. But I'll enjoy it while it lasts!
