Hagane no renkinjutsushi: I haven't seen enough of the new series to have a strong opinion yet,
but at first glance it seems not to have carried over the greatest
strengths of the previous show.Doesn't seem to be as dark, soulful or emotional as the original
series, focusing far more heavily on the child's anime elements from
the original series.Granted the original series was a very odd mix of very goofy childlike
things and extremely graphic, violent disturbing things.And of course they have a new director and that fantastic music from
the original series hasn't carried over at all.As many know, the original anime was produced faster than the manga was
written and they actually just began...
