Btw: this is from Studio 4˚C.
You sure? My reaction was more along these lines:
It also in a way looked Cowboy Bebop and had a similar feel.
Admittedly, I only have a bare minimum experience with anime (Cowboy Bebop and some Hellsing being the only anime I've ever really watched, I still need to make time for Ghost in the Shell), but everything just screamed Bebop to me. The look of the characters and backgrounds, the animation style, the voice acting, the fight sequence - take away the aliens and replace them with gangsters, take away the 26th Century weapons and replace them with pre-WWII pistols, and add a few characters that smoke and you've basically got a Cowboy Bebop short in all but name.
And honestly, I'm surprised at the comments so far. I was expecting some flak, but only a handful of positive reactions in two dozen posts? Wow. As for me, I like it so far, I don't know if I'll buy it (initially) but I don't flat-out hate it like so many seem to do.
