Man, I am SO stoked I'm going to be able to watch this in the theatre. The place where they're showing it in Nagoya is a 10 minute walk from my house and it's going to be playing when I get back to Japan!
If my Japanese is correct this story is shaping up to be something quite epic. Never mind the level of animation. Wow. I'm calling it right now. This is going to be one of the best U.C. series ever.
