>Original Nitroplus' designs vs Finished dolls.
Also Hirakawa Daisuke and Tomatsu Haruka confirmed to join cast.
I actually like the clothing redesign for the puppets more than the original. It's stylish and can actually be worn without ludicrous amount of fashion tape and anti-gravity tech/magic.
The characters look interesting enough.
>Rude moralfag wanderer who pretends to be cynical. Voiced by Suwabe.
>Stubborn prideful heroine
>Heroine's brother who becomes conflicted
>Power hungry villain
Could this be the first time for Urobuchi not to shit on chivalry?
He read a lot of wuxia novels and wrote a GiTS with wuxia VN.
>He reads a lot of wuxia novels
Urobuchi is a man of refined taste.
So much this. It's what I love about wuxia. The martial arts chivalry combined with romance, drama and tragedy, oftentimes with depressing bittersweet endings that stick with you.
I can't exactly recommend any novels since I only watch the television dramas but the shows based on Jin Yong's works are some of the best in my opinion. My personal favorites are "Laughing in the Wind" 2001 drama and "Demi-gods and Semi-devils" 2003. You can find both series translated to english. Also the Condor Hero trilogy is pretty good as well.
Possibly another character from show! Or at least doll was presented on panel.
Few more characters presented on poster behind dolls.
