Well I loved Requiem from the Darkness, so I be checking this out(hopefully?). I am unaware of the direction of this current Kyogoku storyline, but I am somewhat concerned that CLAMP is the right choice to convey the gritty tenebrosity that was so prevalent and done so well in Requiem. I imagine that that theme is still a selling point in Kyogoku's work.

Other than that I am giza excited about this news. Wink

Maybe if Geneon does well with its new deal they will pick this up. It's right up their alley.

I'm looking forward to this one. I had been looking into importing the manga since I had liked Shimizu's earlier work on the Qwan and Suikoden 3 manga but now maybe I won't have to. Here's hoping this'll get Tokyopop to license this for North America.

The novel is really intense, and amazingly long.
Reading the book Requiem was based on, I have no idea how they could even have turned it into anime, but this is easier to film. Clamp are a puzzling choice, but hopefully will turn out less horrific than that manga cover.
