holy crap Gonzo is going to make the Blade and Soul anime, but yea just a side note speaking about the game I really hope that Tencent get the licensing for the NA version as well. Anyone know if NCsoft is going to release the game themselves or sell the license to another company? I'm a Tencent shareholder hehe

The part related involving S;G director interests me. Otherwise, mixed thoughts on this. I haven't played the game before nor planning to.

Judging by appearances, I would not have thought that the same guy who directed Steins;Gate is directing this show. The animation quality looks cheap to me and I would have to think that this show is going to be heavy on fanservice. Other than a promo video with Alka and Hazuki fighting, there's not much out there at the moment in terms of what this show is about.

It's been years since I've waited for this game to come out to NA. I'm guessing the anime will air earlier than the game. Have to wait another 10 years for the game and then extend it more when the date gets closer.

Since I can't play the game might as well watch the anime. And it doesn't look half bad.

I will watch this solely for being the first show of the season to air on Thursday. That's really all the justification I need.

... ! I had forgotten that Kim was involved in the art direction / character design. That would certainly go a long way towards explaining the insane amounts of, ah, plot, as they call it here.

It looked interesting, but then I read MMO anime. Then I remembered SAO. And there went my interest, right down the toilet.

But I'll wait for reviews to see if it's legit
