I'm pretty excited for the anime I enjoy the manga quite a bit so I'm looking forward to seeing all the edges animated. Although I do have a few complaints. I dunno the character designs look a little off to me hopefully when I see them in motion in the anime it will be better. One other complaint I have is some of the casting specifically for Tatsumi, I would have rather had Yuki Kaji over this guy but hey guess new seiyuus have to get work somehow, and I havent heard Esdese's Seiyuu in anything that I recall so I can't really judge but would have been cool to have Shizuka Itou do the role. Other than that though I think some of the casting choices are pretty good (Espically for Wire bro, Mein and Leone). I'm also going to hold out hope that when ever we get to Wave that he'll be voiced by Akira Ishida.


but yeah other than those two slight complaints looking forward to this adaptation.

Very much looking forward to this, although at the same time I am also not letting my hopes up. I feel like they will most likely cut alot of the violence from the anime. Here's to hoping it'll be a two cour show as well.

Is this one of those shows that I should really watch, or is it just not worth my time?

-the only English language novel actually being developed in parallel to its Japanese version involving a pan-human Soviet in a galactic struggle to survive and to export the communist utopia/revolution to all the down trodden alien class and race- one of the premise being that Khrushchev remains and has abandoned Lysenko stupidity

It's not amazing or anything but it has good fights and is fun to keep up with to see who's going to die next. It is by far one of the edgest things I have ever read though. Also manga is better anime is okay but they're are decisions being made in that adaptation that I don't think are very good (such as over use of stills)
