Nice someone made a thread for this. I've been excited about this since I heard the announcement. I'm just hoping it turns out as good as the source material is (Which is Fantastic!) But considering they have an all star team I'm sure it'll turn out good.

On one hand, Shaft is involved and they tend to do quality things.

On the other hand, Aniplex is involved as well and after how they've been handling KlK this season(as in being the reason the KlK episodes this season have been delayed each week), I am extremely wary. If CR picks this show up, can we expect a consistent and timely release, or will it be plagued with delays each week? That is my worry.

I personally not too bothered by the slight delays, but I'm also watching so many shows at the same time I never really get to watch at the normal release times anyway.

Yo, see that? Songs->novels/mange->anime?

Not exactly the same path as Black Rock Shooter, but it's close enough that I noticed and said something. ^_^

Same, except I didn't say anything.

I'm not sure how much we can actually expect them to have in common, but it's neat to see.

True, but they have little need to announce it before Friday.

It isn't as if there is any doubt they have it. Aniplex has the CR logo on their page for it:

So this is a Vocaloid show, right?

Anyone know how the licensing works for this? Like, if it's a mixture of original characters, stories, and songs, which are derivative works, can / does the IP holder of Vocaloid get a say over what goes on in the show, etc?

Technically, Aniplex Channel isn't a service of its own, but rather a portal page to all of Aniplex's own video on Hulu, rather like VizAnime.com.

Jin does utilize vocaloids in his music but i wouldn't call the show a "vocaloid show". Jin makes music with a story and further defines it in LNs, Manga, and is directly involved with the anime adaptations of his story. Also all the characters are his own and are not vocaloids.

That's cool, it's nice that the guy / gal who made the story / songs has a say in the show.

From what I gather about the Vocaloid fan-work community, most of it is like the Mario series where they can be different characters / personalities in different types of stories / games (like how Mario and the others do golf, go-karting, have RPG games, etc.) , but maintain some base traits (like how Miku is a vocaloid, and in Mekkaku she is a digital AI girl), that's what I meant how it's a derivative work, and since it's based around the Vocaloid property, if the IP owner of Vocaloid could or does have any say in how their IP is portrayed.



Crunchy has a new PV up for the show!
