Meanwhile, I get the feeling this will be a series to really watch closely.

I agree.

I know I'm all over this thread, but the whole project seems really ambitious to me, which I can appreciate. I'd rather see them aim high and fail than aim low and make it.

I think it could either be really, really good or really, really bad.

This should be good. I've been satisfied with what JC Staff have released lately, expect for Witch Craft Works which I ended up dropping.

The PV got me hooked I hope it will deliver since it's got Steins Gate director and the script writer from Nagi no Asukara that alone is epic!

That would be good!

I usually dislike card-game adaptations but the PV looks good, music sounds good... JC. Staff I like so... I will give it a chance for sure. Looks good and dark which I like.

Don't forget about the trading card game that's supposed to go along with it.. It's really odd for something that's usually meant to be a product show to try to advertise its-self in a mature light, but here's a trailer for the actual card game and its website:

They even have demonstrations of it:

Same company made the Duel Masters card game, so I'm not sure how interested I am in the actual game play.

EDIT: Added the first demonstration. The music and SFX make it seem far more hype than it is

The interesting thing is that the card game was developed alongside the show, not before it.

Make me wonder how much the game will rely on the show and vice versa.

Unless there is actual compelling gameplay, hopefully the game will be kept in a plot/thematic role above all else.

That's not really unusual. A show is good advertisement for such products.

I still find it odd that it's advertised to have a mature theme. I guess the average TCG players are older than they once were

The card game aspect doesn't do anything for me, but an all(?) female cast plus a good writer/director combo and dark themes are more than enough to get my attention. This may end up being the season where I finally dive into a plethora of simulcasts head first.

^ I like Funimation so that's really good news, though it kinda sucks for me that I can't watch the simulcast since i live outside the States and Canada. I'll at least keep tabs on what people think about it though.

^It's still possible CR will pick up the stream too. There's some overlap between what FUNi picks up and what CR streams. For example, Nobunagun was picked up by CR for simulcast despite being licensed by FUNi as well. We'll just have to wait and see what CR plans to get later.

True. I stated earlier in the Spring 2014 Anime topic that with 7 more simulcasts to go for Funimation, there will likely end up 1 or 2 shared between them and CR.

Funimation was first to announce Attack on Titan, while CR was first out of the gate with the Nobunagun announcement. If it does end up as a simulcast for both, I wouldn't expect a very large gap between Funimation's announcement and CR's.
