The novels for this series go back to the 80s; the OVAs had a neat Persian aesthetic, this could be pretty cool.

1986: First novel by Yoshiki Tanaka (still ongoing, 13 have been published).
1991-1995: Anime films/OVAs (6 total).
1991-1996: First manga by Chisato Nakamura.
2013: Second manga by Hiromu Arakawa.



That was my first reaction:
"Wait. What?????Someone's talking about this old anime!?!??!?!"
*click*
"Oh. It's a remake"
*read comments"
"Nobody know that this is actually ancient!?!?!"
"God I feel old."

...Spring already trying to destroy Winter......
Koda's mini hype on the first page sure has me interested that's for sure. Lets see if She can get another Hall of Fame installment going.
MC is awfully "pretty" for a guy =p , Saber-esque.

Not yet but we'll find out soon. My guess is on Bones though.

Sanzigen?

Is this going to have copious amounts of CGI animation, then? Cause that's like their bread and butter.

I hope this sparks an interest in other works by Yoshiki Tanaka.

That looks awesome, but I wish I knew what was being said. Sigh the Japanese really need to get with the program, when it comes to subbing in general(and their DvDs/BD these days should have a sub option, and ditto for their prieviews/trailers).

I really liked the OVAs until they trailed off without a conclusion. Hopefully this version will take the story further.

It is rather ironic that I was reading a thread yesterday with people despairing that a different show would not be continued because of a lack of news for two years. I've lost track of the number of series I gave up for dead that have been resucitated several years later.

It looks gorgeous! This is one is a must-watch for me. I really hope CR picks it up but you know...

I don't really understand Yuuki Kaji as Silver mask but then I wasn't sold on him being Melodias, either, and that worked out.
