As long as there are helicopter assaults with loud speakers playing "Ride of the Valkyries" like in the magna, and really bad ass female JSDF soldiers, I am fine with it.

Ooooh now I'm a little worried for this one. I've heard that the series has some pretty dark moments like

and I hope they don't cut out that stuff. Cutting stuff out like that takes away from the story.

But I am excited for it, seems like this one could be a huge hit if done right. A-1 Pictures could potentially have another big money maker.

So far that scene is just once so far and very brief!

The manga is awesome / yes it's like Ootbreak Company but more along the lines of Aslan or Yona! And it is very political too I wont spoil but important ! It is cool ! Wait until you see Rory Mercury XD The girls are quite attractive! Funny lots of action !

I'm VERY excited for this one. I hope the censoring isn't too bad! One thing you got to know about me is that I HATE censoring. I wanna read the manga. but at the same time I don't because if they butcher it, I'd like to live in bliss for some time.

It's public domain so they will most likely use it.

Is it really? I loved it in Apocalypse Now. I figure that song well is past copyright laws limit of age so I guess you're right.

Ride of the Valkyries was written in the 1850's, so its most definitely public domain.

I'm not sure how I am going to feel about this. I like military settings, but I generally don't like excessive glorification of warfare. War is never without moral greys, no matter how just the cause. What I've heard about this does not exactly ease my concerns on this front either.

I'm also hoping that the fantasy side has something to even the odds. Because medieval armies vs modern military sounds like a one-sided snore fest. in the middle ages, grouping your men together made sense, but it would be suicide today. I would hope that the other side has a nuanced portrayal too.

I hear people talking about rape being in the story at some point. Since rape has always been an ugly side of warfare that is not necessarily a problem for me, but I would need to see if it is tastefully done. Hopefully not simply for shock value.

Also the MC keeps setting off my gary-stu senses.

Basically I have a lot of concerns about this series, which is a pity because a lot of it appeals to me. I think that I will either love it or hate it depending on how it is handled. I'm definitely hoping that they get things right, but I see a lot of potential pitfalls.
