This looks highly enjoyable in silly ways and the music is pretty catchy, but then again I was a total mark for this sort of thing as soon as you got both Taniguchi and Nakashima on board.

Looks like a return to 90's style adventure anime, color me intrigued.
Not sure if I like Kaji Yuki for an optimistic muscle-head type character though...

I am reminded of Taniguchi's Gun x Sword or the Wild Arms series with this Western fantasy setting which is something we don't see too often.

Yup, this definitely reminds me of Gun x Sword with the character designs and vaguely old western setting. Looking forward to it!

Agree with darkchibi07 and Moontei. Definitely seems like the second coming of Gun x Sword. And like Fenrin said, it has a bit of 90s adventure anime vibe to it. I'm intrigued, but the trailer seems sort of middling right now, even compared to Gun x Sword. Still, impressive that someone is trying again to do a new Trigun of sorts.

That's a lot of good talent, plus the PV made it look pretty good. Definitely reminds me of a mishmash/throwback to Taniguchi's & and Nakashima's previous works, all around. I'd be a little surprised if Aniplex USA ceded dibs to FUNimation, though I guess that is ultimately a home office call.

This project looks sooo like something Taniguchi would work on.

Same, I love it. Tanaka's gonna be amazing for the music for this setting too.
Elsha's design reminds me of Rebecca from WA5 so I love that too.

Damn that's a great lead staff.
