Will it be any good? Art direction looks pretty cool, at least.
>The anime's story begins with a major incident, The Reflection Event that covered the world in a black smoke that robbed the world of sunlight. Many people lost their lives, but those few who survived gained superpowers and became known as The Reflected. Some chose to be heroes, and others villains. But how and why The Reflection itself happened remains a mystery.

Why are semi-realistic martial arts so unpopular in anime?
Nearly all the anime that supposedly features martial arts is about power flinging (see: dragon ball or taboo tattoo), or delegates the fist fights to one or two trivial characters (why the fuck MAL puts the martial arts tag on Freezing?), and so on.
With all the popular manga focused on semi-realistic martial arts (teppu, holyland, all rounder meguru, karata kyokushin kohinata minoru to name a few), I don't get why we don't get more anime based on those properties.
To put some perspective: Katanagatari is from 2010, and Kenichi from 2006. Can you remember more recent examples in a similar vein to those?
>Implying I can't do both
Well, if there were more, obviously.
Also, for the same hajime no ippo is still going on after so many years: because it can be fun, and the story and background can spice what otherwise would be two guys beating each other for money.
Who is the best Kage of the new generation (Kakashi and on)
And why is it Kakashi
>Takes Konoha from small houses to skyscrapers
>Introduces computers and the internet
>Introduces trains and blimp technology
Kakashi may not be the strongest Hokage but he helped the village the most.
So what did Piccolo do in those six months he was waiting for Gohan to learn how to survive that increased his power level so many times more than his previous 4 to 5-year training between DB and DBZ?

>"As Kessler's secrets played out in my mind, I finally began to understand. I saw his nemesis, a beast intent on extinguishing all life. In those early days, Kessler could have used his powers to stop it, but instead he fled with his family, leaving others to fend for themselves. Hunted for years, Kessler and his family watched as the rest of the world went to hell...and then it was too late, too late to fight, too late to save anyone. In that moment of failure and grief, he used his newest and most dangerous power. He went on a one way trip back in time, attempting to rewrite history. Kessler seized control of the First Sons and accelerated the Ray Sphere's development. Decades spent plotting the blast, organizing the quarantine, finding me. Yet the thing that drove him forward, Kessler's sole link to the past, was a picture from his wedding day...when he married Trish, with Zeke as his best man. My brain lurched, unable to accept that Kessler and I were the same person, that he'd come back in time to mold me into the savior he failed to be, going so far as to kill the woman he loved--I loved--so that I wouldn't be tied down by emotions. No, Kessler wanted me strong, ruthless, so that when I faced the beast, I'd be capable of making impossible decisions all for the common good."
