Hmm, interesting. Code:Breaker never did seem to be nearly as popular as Samurai Deeper Kyo - let alone very popular at all - to justify an anime adaptation.

If the anime takes off and becomes popular, perhaps Kodansha will continue the manga's release in North America after all.

Words simply cannot describe my excitement.
It's certainly not very popular which makes this just... wonderful! I never expected it. It's a very pleasant surprise. I hope that this will encourage more people to look into Code:Breaker! It's a very enjoyable series.

I can't wait to see it!

The description states the usual cliche setting/story.

Is the execution what people are excited about, or what?

This sounds interesting. I might have to check this out. I had wondered what Akimine Kamijyo did after SDK...

If it were sticking to tried and true cliches, actually, Sakura would be the Breaker and Rei would be a hapless wuss about to be roasted by her.

I never read the manga, but i'm glad that the anime adaption waited untill it had 16 volumes. Nowadays, most manga get anime when they have less than ten volumes.

Untouchable vigilante, huh? Smells a bit too much like Code Geass or Death Note for my tastes, I'm thinking.

Here's a sentiment I can get behind. I understand producers want to strike when the fires are hot on new properties, but I'm really tired of little one-season adaptations that lack real endings. It seems like most of them aren't even close to that ten volume benchmark when the anime start airing.

I don't know, I read some of the manga a while back and thought it was pretty terrible (please don't get me started about all the hugging going on). However, that doesn't mean the anime can't be better than the source material. I'd be willing to give it a few episodes, but if it sticks slavishly to the manga then there's no doubt I would drop it.

Well, I actually predicted that this manga will get an anime adaptation, because the first parts of the manga are pretty good, the protagonist is an anti-hero and the super powers you get to see are quite awesome. But I guess there will be a lot of censoring because of the violence in the manga.

Lets hope my other predictions come true too, such as Cage of Eden, 3 Gatsu no Lion (March Comes in Like a Lion) and Tasogare Otome x Amnesia.

About time this got green-lit. I stopped reading a while back and recently caught up to it.

Yes! Yes! Yes! and Yes! again. I can't wait for this! I also want to know who they'll pick as voice actors. Hopefully it will generate some more interest in the manga so they continue releasing it here. It's definitely one of my favorite titles. Check it out folks!

You have no idea how long I've been waiting for this. I think the action might actually make some good sequences if animated right. Here's hoping the studio does well with it~ Now we seriously need a VA list. Right now. :'D
