    I've been meaning to watch the original, maybe I might be more inclined to watch it now.

    I've heard that this is a remake, but not sure where I read that.

    I was fucking screaming when I saw the news on tumblr. I thought I was dreaming. It's crazy cause a few weeks ago I was just yelling how I wanted an anime reboot

    I wasn't expecting the new seiyuus, though I'm fine with them cause I like the ones announced so far. Though idk how I feel about that key art..

    I heard the last anime adapted like 8 volumes out of the total 21 and this is a full adaptation. Surprised they are going all in with this, but its a pleasant surprise.

    Wait, so are they going to continue off where the original anime ended? Or are they going to retell the entire manga storyline from the start?

    I really liked this anime and manga. I think it was probably one of the biggest shoujo mangas during the 2000s. Surprised it took so long to continue it.

    From what I hear they are adapting the entire series, but I don't know if they are going to continue off where the last anime ended. A sequel might not be the best for drawing in new fans.

    Any idea how many episodes its going to be? Its a pretty long series. IIRC, the first anime stopped before revealing that:
    Spoiler:

    Akito was a girl which is a pretty big spoiler.


    Is it just me or are a lot of old animes getting revivals right now?

    Couldn't even guess, but if they give it 26 episodes then it will probably feel rushed as hell, sequel or complete remake. Not sure how many episodes it would have.

    To be fair, I don't think all the zodiac animals had even shown up in the manga when the original anime was made. The anime had to stop and make up its own ending ala Full Metal Alchemist because the manga was incomplete.

    Does anyone know which studio is making it?

    Yeah, like I said the original anime got Akito's gender wrong because that reveal wasn't made yet in the manga. The new anime will have to be significantly longer. I'm guessing with the new system of releasing anime in seasons it will cover multiple seasons.
