Ozma Tomorrow at 11:00 am!!!
It will be available on Crunchyroll starting Saturday at 11:00 am (American Eastern Standard Time). This is 24 hours after release in Japan. It should be subbed. The episode title will be something like “The Sand Whale”, referring to the mysterious Ozma entity.
I’ve only a read a handful comments on 2ch of folk who watched the first episode… There seems to be a general complaint that the show feels old, that despite the nice character designs the script sounds old. Well, the script is supposed to be 30-years old and anyway this is friggin’ Leiji Matsumoto we’re talking about!! One commenter basically said that you can tell this anime will suck by looking at the group doing the OP [they’re Korean].
Honestly, 2ch is a pretty sad place.
That said, I might as well state right now that we cannot expect too much from this project. 6 episodes to commemorate the anniversary of a cable channel, based on an old script that did not make the cut 30 years ago…these are not exactly circumstances that give rise to anime greatness.
Still, we can hope it’ll be a decent appetizer for things to come 🙂
EDIT: I’ve heard the crunchyroll stream will not be available in Asia, but I imagine the one in viki.com will work for the Asians interested in watching it.
