That's a good sign. I'm still waiting for a possibility of its anime debut. Please tell me they will be doing one; it warrants an anime.

That trailer was disgusting.

Other than the robot scenes, everything else looked low budget, probably because it was shot on digital. The manga had a very distinctive style and feel, and that trailer just gave the impression of complete hokey-ness, so much so that I can't resist but to laugh. An anime adaptation would suit it much better, as a live adaptation would require a very high budget, and a very skilled cast and crew. From the very first frames, I already knew the film was going to suck, and suck bad. The flashback scene at the start was cheesy, the intercuts of the symbol and the notebook were even cheesier, and god forbid someone listens to this narration if it is in the film.

I am really disappointed. It was a great manga and it deserves greatness, not some sad B-grade junk.
