Super pumped for this. Hopefully it is a big success and maybe Spirit Circle, and dare I wish it, Sengoku Youko.

Hopefully this is more like ID Invaded and less like Dramatical Murder in terms of production values.

This was such a highly requested title that I expected some good production values, but there's astoundingly little animation in that trailer. Hope the full product lives up to expectations.

I've heard good things about it, but not a very impressive PV.

The animation looks abysmal from the trailer. It's clear as day that production is not only going to be rushed but will lack the necessary staff to animate all the action setpieces because in this industry of dreadfully low pay, it's all about connections and I doubt any animator wants to do the kind of action set pieces this kind of production needs with such horrible rates. It's such a damn shame too. Such a great manga that so many people wanted animated for ages get rushed out with poor production values(those still shots of the action sequences in the PV don't inspire any confidence) because big corporations and streaming services all need an endless stream of content is why I have no faith in nearly all productions that come out these days. I expect production to collapse mid-way through and even the endless outsourcing won't save this disaster from happening. Damn shame really.

Oof, I adore the manga, but the minimal animation in that trailer is making me more worried than excited.

Personally, I'm more worried about the manga story - which they say they're gonna adapt all of - being rushed to the point of being a second Hakyu Hoshin Engi over any degree of animation issues, as valid as those worries are in and of themselves.

We don't yet know how many cours the series will be. If it's only one, then yeah, there's no way it can do the manga justice and we'll be looking at a butchering on the level of Promised Neverland 2. Hopefully they have the good sense to make it longer.

or Anglomois's production values which was NAZ's best if we excluded ID and Bisco because those were by another staff.

the author is still involved with the writing process of the anime so don't worry about it.

Much of Angolmois's animation is also outsourced to Jumondo, so I doubt NAZ will do much with this show and its position into the animation production is merely ceremonial the same way Deen and TMS are in The Seven Deadly Sins' later seasons and Rent-A-Girlfriend where virtually all of the animation works were handled by Marvy Jack and Studio Comet, respectively.

All we can do is hope for the best, and even if the worst happens, just be glad it was chosen to be adapted and we got a chance for our characters to be animated.
