  • Hideki Tachibana makes me lose interest in this a lot, and fast….~

    Seiji Mizushima on the other hand raised it a bit again. Gonna be interesting to say the least~

    • I don’t get why ppl liked Carnival Phantasm for being a comedic T-M spin-off but hate Kira for doing the same thing….

      • People dont even remember Dantalian no Shoka D:<

        • ??? I don’t get your comment….

      • I never praised Carnival Phantasm tho? I’m not hating on Tachibana because of Kira, but because of most of his works are just not exactly something you’d call outstanding..or good.

        CP made me realized that a lot of things about the series actually are pretty funny when blown out of proportion. Especially Lancer’s supernatural bad luck.

        My most memorable comedy videos about Fate are Final Dead Lancer and the last episode Einzbern Consultation Room. Which actually wasn’t funny at all, but it makes you think.

        • For me, its the **** wr0sm frm the “Date Seiba” episode ^w^;

          I’m just curious whether or not the Apocrypha Lancers will get affected by it… It certainly affected the Extra Lancer(s)…

          Last ECR? Are you referring to the assassins or there more?

  • Character design looks nice.

    Shingeki no kyjoin> GITS Arise> Kill la kill> Blazblue Alter Memorry

    looks like they’re trying to save anime one show at a time :p

    • save, nothing needs saving

  • cameron forsyth

    so it’s going to cover at least calamity trigger, i’d like to see how they pull that off since the majority of the minor characters spent the time in that game growling at the other minor characters, the story was too fixated on what had happened than what was, fights broke out too frequently and allot of the time they were establishing a setting for the story to come.

    of course this can be applied to most fighting games story structure. regardless i found calamity trigger to be one of the less progressive instalments of the series
    i assume the light novels streamlined the lore, conflicts and story and made it anime worthy since this news is in union with the new light novel. anyway i’m still looking forward to this anime.

  • Will get the Blu-ray for it

  • Hideki Tachibana? Really? But all he does is ruin things with terrible fanservice…

    • Luna Kazemaru

      uhhh noel? Makoto? Tao?

      • M’iau M’iaut

        And it isn’t as if Higurashi was void of fanservice to begin with.

        • The original series and Kai had very little fanservice. What came after made me ditch the series almost entirely. :(

          • M’iau M’iaut

            Yet the games weren’t lacking. I know Tachibana is a lightning rod director, but it isn’t as the shows he is most infamous for were absolutely pure in previous forms.

      • No, no. What I mean is you’ll end up with Rachel washing a window with her butt.

        • Carlos Daniel Flores Loreto

          And? Would rather see Platinum doing it, but Rachel is fine too.

        • Brandonmkii

          Suddenly, I’m interested.

  • Luna Kazemaru

    Not who I wanted but I guess this could work

  • Fidelis

    It would’ve been awesome if it covered the stuff that happened in the light novels. That’s what I was hoping. Like one big anime flashback before they finish off the 6 heroes storyline in CP

  • Relax people! :D Mori is here!!

  • stephane3012

    Sad face i dont see Bang Shishigami in the cast.

  • Neppygear

    Will watch. Will very much watch.

  • Sam Park

    This along with Guilty Gear XXX or Guilty Gear Xrd is going to be Awesome

  • I’m real happy for you and Imma let you finish but Guilty Gear Xrd is one of the greatest announcements of all time.

  • Sakurazaki
  • Herok♞

    Can’t wait, hopefully we don’t have to wait long to get the dvds in the us and hopefully from someone who does dual audio.

  • Patrick Lucas Honeyman

    And now it is very clear why Chrono Phantasma is releasing in October in Japan. I can only imagine that ASW has known about this for a while and has only been able to announce it now. Air the anime, bump up sales of Chrono Phantasma when it is released.

    Question is, will it be a decent adaptation of the source material. Fans can only hope we get something worthwwhile.

    • Its Calamity Trigger. How can they go wrong? Oh wait DS2 >_>

      • Patrick Lucas Honeyman

        I’ve only seen a couple of episodes of Devil Survivor 2. Is it really a bad adaptation of the source product?

        I think with the original game’s producer on-board for consultation duties he will assure that the anime is a decent adaptation of the original material. At least I hope he can have that much of an impact.

        I think we can be happy a series is being made at all. More media for a decent franchise isn’t always a bad sign.

        • The problem with the adaption is mood. And they are moving a weee bit too fast. Monday should have been 5 episodes. Oh and the piss poor lines.

          • And not to mention someone trying hard to be a “cool” loner which is not cool

          • Kuze aint really trying

          • bassgs435

            again , the problem with that is that they only were given 13 episodes to work with, which makes sense oce you realize Index’s financial troubles and DeSu2 not being half as popular as Persona. the fact we got an anime at all is good enough

  • urbanscholar

    No lie guys, I’ll watch it just to see how crazy Jin is. How angsty Ragna is, & how bat @#$! evil Hazama is. Oh yes sir.

  • Can’t wait for this :D

    • Tonton Ramos

      I am shocked at your arrival here… who knew some anime character will be interested watching this…

      • After a hard day of dueling, Me and Astral love to kick back and watch some anime. You wouldn’t believe how much finding Numbers can take its toll.

      • Beta

        Funny, the first opening of the ZeXal anime it mentions watching anime, reading manga, etc. as it describes the daily routines of a failure student XD

        • Failure..student? -falls over-

          • Beta

            Well, duh, it does say that the student is only decent at sports XD

          • :(

  • fireemblembeast

    Can’t wait haha :D

  • Jordan

    Waitin…waiting… I can imagine how awesome bang will be.. Ready for that fu rin ka-zam!

  • konsama

    Bet everyone’s just waiting for the fanservice episode and find out if Noel uses underwear or not. >.>

  • ZekeFreek

    I’m going to guess 12 or so episodes. Good chance of a dub eventually too. If its not ridiculously priced, eh, sure Ill buy a Blu-Ray.

    • I hope if this one become a success, they will make CS adaptation too, OR even better the “Phase Zero” novels since it cover about the past before the main game begin and we know that we will never see the novels in english…

  • Now I can watch a Rebel an episode at a time.

    • Chow

      Can you see that the wheel of fate is turning?

  • Damarius Wingfield

    HAZAMA:*Troll laughs*

  • Göran Isacson

    Can’t say I’ve seen a lot of the shows this Hoods-team have been main producers of, but I have liked quite a few shows which they’ve done in-between stuff on… no idea if that says ANYTHING on their actual qualities as a studio, but hey- if they have the original writer on board I think I can afford to be at least a little bit hopeful.
