    Kurozuka

    Kurozuka - Madhouse animated the manga into a 12 episode TV series!

History records that he committed suicide, but instead, Kurou meets a strange, beautiful woman named Kuromitsu in her mountain hermitage. Eventually, Kurou falls in love with Kuromitsu, but then realizes she conceals a dark secret. He learns that he is unable to die and continues to live for a thousand years as Japan evolves into a future society."

    The manga is *very* explicit seinen (nudity, gore - certainly not for younger readers) and toys a lot with the mind of the reader. It's not something everyone can read/watch. I wonder how the anime will be (prolly censored, particulary the nudity).

    Re: Kurozuka

    Judging the commercial picture, the anime character design seems to differ greatly from the manga style. They don't resemble the manga characters at all and the anatomy looks weird, hmmm

    *replaced manga picture with anime picture in first post*

    Also, the airing time is 22.00pm. Guess, that's cutting off all chances that it will be uncensored or any near the level of the manga. I just hope they don't downgrade it to a mere action anime.

    Re: Kurozuka

    yeah judging from the anime pic, the anime will be somewhat different from the manga.. i think they'll reduce it to a mere action anime.. and slash out the mature/seinen part

    Re: Kurozuka

    Yes, pop my dream bubble before it even begins

    Meh, first BotI and now that... I can't believe it ... *wants more trailer*


    Screw my whining... the RAW of the first EP is out and all I can say is: WOHAA Brilliant!
    Torrent: http://forum.anirena.com/viewtracker...nload&id=14969

    I'm positive surprised. The character design is verrrry beautiful, the atmosphere is breathtaking and the opening just ROCKS! Also, so far it has enough bloody action to stop my censor-complains completely. I hope this quality keeps up. Amazing!!! Wanna more!

    Re: Kurozuka

    Still, thank you for posting it here

    They say over in their forum that an avi version will be coming too, so I'll prefer waiting on that. Nice too see that Shinsen picked it up <3

    Re: Kurozuka

    Bones is talking about the second ep, Miya

    Not as extreme as the manga but certainly enough for the anime adaption.

    Re: Kurozuka

    I haven't previously read any of the manga from this series, but so far I'm very impressed with the Anime. Though I'm beginning to wonder how many series Madhouse Is producing this Season....
