    Wow I've never even heard of this, I'm gonna go check out the manga. And something as graphic as this being directed by Hirotsugu Hamazaki is aweasome news, I'm a huge fan of texhnolyze.

    I want to see the trailer really bad to see what kind of quality animation it has. The designs look great.

    Huzzah according to pukiwiki.

    Episode 1 was boring without subs. Not so action packed and since I'm not a manga reader I didn't know what the hell was happening.

    Is there a list of seiyuu anywhere?

    I've been waiting for more chapters from the scanlation, but it looks like the anime is going to surpass it very quickly. It's not an amazing manga, but still interesting. I can't want to see the anime.

    newest raw is up.
    animators will need some skills to keep up with manga.

    otherwise, it will kill the manga's reputation.
    Manga contained the perfect mixture of reality and fantasy.
    I just don't know how animators will end the series.
    They need to decide who will be the winner and loser.

    I'm not too keen on all those dudes in thongs but the blood is always a plus. I guess I'll check this out. A synopsis would be nice though.

    Have you read the manga yet? If you're worried about spoilers, I think the first episode just covers the first chapter. The manga is a whole lot bloodier.

    I'm actually glad I read the manga, because I'm finding the subtitles here kind of confusing. It made more sense in the manga...

    EDIT: I stand corrected. The first episode covers the first and second (and possibly the beginning of the third) chapters of the manga.

    This is what a sumurai anime should be like. That was awesome, I'm so looking forward to see how this fight turns out.

    Actually, if you stop reading the manga right where episode 1 ends (the anime follows the manga pretty well) then you won't really be spoiled about anything. Chapter three is where the first "real" fight scene starts.

    Frankly, I about halfway through the episode I had to stop and consult the manga. It was just too confusing and unclear (especially the narration and stuff about the reason for the tournament). Not to mention that the anime is sort of... slow. There were quite a few moments where I wanted to yell at the screen Monty Python-style "Get on with it!"

    EDIT: I just uploaded this episode to MegaUpload for those of you who don't want to bother with the torrent. I can also upload the manga scanlation is anyone wants that too.

    I haven't read the manga. I like the anime but I find it extremely confusing atm. Even moreso when I'm watching it without a sub.
