I'm putting all on my money on the notion that this will be the most popular anime airing in the spring season. Why do you ask? Well for one, Studio Wit - Most famous for bringing to life the worldwide phenom Attack on Titan and most recently Rolling Girls is putting out all the stops for this one, the staff is very reliable and experienced and we have the ever popular Hiroyuki Sawano on the soundtrack. Add that to the stunning visuals, this being a split cour series and the managka being very much involved on the series (It's going to have anime original content as well, but the creator supervised the scriptwriting so I think that it'll be okay), I think it's safe to say that we're gonna have another overhyped series on our hands lol.
Naturally LN and manga readers would also be thrilled for this series, but judging by what I've personally read so far and what others have told me, this series isn't groundbreaking at all, it's pretty generic and it has some uncanny similarities to Attack on Titan in some aspects, however, I heard that it gets less cliche'd and that the series itself takes off as it goes on....So far for me, the best thing about the series were the characters so I'm looking forward to seeing how this series plays out. (Also I hear that there is some yaoi-esque moments in this series lol Traps too I think xD). This series will make for some great cosplaying though because their outfits are fabulous if I must say
