Already looking forward to an OST =)

This is really fucking crazy. After a year of Fractale, No.6, Un-Go, Guilty Crown.... we finally get real noitaminA back. I refuse to believe this is real. I'll wake up soon enough. :p
Don't forget to include B★RS in that list you have made...

As much as I love Watanabe and Kanno, but not an action show? I'm not really pumped about this. It's not the Watanabe show I wanted, but maybe it's what I deserved.

Fucking YES. Anime is saved for now.

Is there an English translation for the title?

The official English title from the trailer seems to be "Kids on the Slope". The direct translation of the Japanese title would be Apollo on the Slope.

My eyes lit up when I saw the director and composer. This could be great!

The promotional art is relaxing to look at too. Nice blend of colors.

Live you where?
Return of the king. I need a piece of the pie, please!

My greatest hope is that they can truly make this production the J-jazz anime of the forever. Start off with jazz combo material, and gradually progress into all sorts of cool fusion material, like the stuff being done in the late '70s. T-Square and Casiopea and Sleepy Matsumoto-style stuff—all of this, and thank you based Kanno. Everything looks great so far.

It's about fucking time! It seems like I've been waiting for a Watanabe anime for ages.

I'm glad it's noitaminA too. They air good shows.

Not digging the character art in the first post, plus I'm not a staff whore, so the staff list does very little for me.
The trailer seems to show some nice animation, but still I don't like the style of the character designs, so I'm feeling sort of conflicted.

"Hey guys Akira Kurosawa just rose from the dead and studios gave him $500 million for a new movie!"

"Eh well I'm not a staff whore, so..."

The trailer is so much better than that teaser image. And yes, it looks like lots of potential for bromance.

Oh wow so this turned out to be a Watanabe show, awesome. Is Nakamura's noitamina show for the same season? That would be an amazing combo. Nice turnaround for noitamina though, after the last couple of shit seasons.

Nakamura's show is for the same season, yes. If he can manage to deliver something on the level of Mononoke and Trapeze again, it'll be a great comeback for noitamina.

What are the list of all Noitamina shows? Or the good ones at least. I haven't been keeping up to date with them after Nodame Cantabile. I miss the old days of Honey and Clover. I think they started with a bang but it's been kind of rocky journey after that.

Watch Mononoke, Trapeze/Kuuchuu Buranko, and Wandering Son. Those are the best ones.

Don't watch noitaminA shows like Guilty Crown, Tatami Galaxy, Ano Hana, or C. They are bad.

Don't listen to Pizzaroll on a bit here. The Tatami Galaxy is one of Noitamina's best shows to date. But to add another to his good list, House of Five Leaves. The last bit of good Manglobe we'll probably ever see.

This guy is a troll.

Tatami Galaxy is one of the best shows made in the past couple years.

So hyped for Apollon. Love live noitaminA.
