Best recent anime announcement is Redline's Koike is going to direct Lupin the IIIrd: Daisuke Jigen's Gravestone. Now that shit is going to be hype.
When is this airing?
Starts on July 10, but I believe there's going to be a premiere screening at Anime Expo.
Sounds very nice so far. I was expecting something akin to her GITS:SAC/Darker than Black/Wolf's Rain work with an emphasis on a subdued atmosphere and so far it's not exactly similar but the feelings are there.
They took down the trailer
The music sound like classic Yoko Kanno, very ripoff-ey. Not necessarily a drawback....
Look, you can like her music, I enjoy it as well and obviously original stuff by her still gets composed but it's been widely documented that a fair amount of her music has been heavily inspired or plagiarized from something else.Cant believe people go with this still.... if it is ripoffy, then ripoff will be my middle name, cause she makes amazing music.
I saw episode one and two at AX. I actually liked it so far. It reminded me a little bit of Death Note and The Place Promised in Our Early Days.
I had some qualms about it, but so far they seem to have gone, because each episode made me want to watch the next. Unfortunately, two is all we got.
