I like these rather down-to-Earth designs. I hope that the series will have a fairly naturalistic feel.

I hopeful about the lead being a pianist. Yoko Kanno wrote some really cool piano music for Cowboy Bebop.

I'm still really excited about this. The soundtrack could be really cool, if nothing else. The sixties yielded much of my favorite jazz. I wonder if any of the music will be new arrangements of classics from the era. I would sure dig hearing a YK take on "Blue Rondo a La Turk".

I haven't really pursued being a jazz geek beyond listening to some jazz considerably oftener than most people for a long time. It would be very fitting if another Watanabe/Kanno work inspired me to go back to that.

Junichi Suwabe is in it? Awesome. I really enjoyed his Greed in the first FMA series.

I thought those same exact thoughts. The soundtracks from Bebop and even Samurai Champloo were beautiful. Plus, anything from '55-'65 is pure gold as far as jazz goes. Knowing it's going to of course be different and have Watanabe's own style to it, I still hope Apollon is something along of the lines of Nodame Cantabile, a show that's all about the music.

I'm still looking forward to this one, too. Not that it's my main reason for watching the series, it will be interesting to see the differences/similarities when compared to Beck.
