From a technical standpoint it doesn't look as impressive as TSR, but it's a lot better than I expected from Xebec, and it seems to be at least as good as season 1 and Fumoffu if not better. That said, I would be excited for this even if it looked like shit. Can't wait to see COMO and BOMF animated! :swoon: I really hope Sentai licenses this since Chris Patton refuses to work with Funi.

That footage actually looks pretty good. I'm cautiously optimistic for this to be a good adaptation of the rest of the story.

Funimation was hosting the FMP panel at AX, so it's likely that the new anime is going to be licensed by them.  Hopefully they can figure something out to get Patton back.

I'd still rather have FUNi get this one than Sentai. While the lack of Chris Patton will suck since I'm a fan of his portrayal in the dub, the actual quality of the English voice acting and script will be far better in FUNi's hands, and of course they will always include the option for the original Japanese audio with English subtitles. Beyond that, though, I can also trust them to come out with much more reasonably priced Blu-Ray sets than any other company in the industry.

On another note, I'll also be sad to not have Mike Kleinhenz reprise his role as Kalinin in the dub, seeing as how he has sadly passed away since the dub for TSR. :'(

Patton was in the dub for Drifters, so he's probably worked something out with Funi if that's any indication.

Same. I couldn't help but feel slightly down when I saw Kalinin in the trailer.

This is very good!

Basically one film for each novel that was adapted into the first season then. It would've been cool if they completely reanimated them, but compilation films are still a good way to get people up to speed with the story before the new show.

New visual revealed.

Really looking forward to this.
