    Once again, I wonder: Clearly these images, final or not, aren't just being sent out accidentally. So why on Earth would FUNimation, normally a very sensible company, allow their preliminary images to be distributed with awful neon color grading applied? Maybe it's a copyright thing, so they can figure out how far their PR material trickles down, and know at a glance who's using it? There must be a reason, since it keeps happening, and can't just be by accident.

    Anyway, after the absurdity of MB's "We Suck When It Comes To Logos" department doing their best/worst with Dragon Destiny, I'm very glad to see that FUNimation has opted for, or at the very least is apparently strongly considering, using Geneon's series logo.

      Indeed, the color on this looks a bit...radioactive. Looking forward to seeing how it evolves.

        I'll agree that the colors look very over saturated here, and also that the logo looks great. (No pun intended.) I like the overall look of it.

        It definitely looks better than Media Blasters' original preliminary artwork for their release. Though, one could argue that it's not setting the bar very high.

        Edit: Thanks for the catch, strikezero00. Normally I double check my posts, this time I took it for granted.

          Direct image links from TRSI don't tend to work as well here.

            Apparently water coloring is the new rage for anime covers.

              The group shot looks fine, but the color scheme doesn't look right.

                The artwork chosen here is good to me (ignoring the coloring right now). I'm sure another cover with more accurate coloring will surface soon enough.

                  Wasn't it brought up in another thread that these oddly colored covers are due to images being saved for printing, rather than digital display? I guess it wouldn't be possible to import this into PhotoShop, change the save settings, and not have it considered an alteration instead of an official cover.

                    While its a nice cover, the content is a tad deceptive. After all, this is a series about reincarnated feudal warlords battling for control over all "China", taking intense sexual pleasure from the violence. And pretty teen girls in mini-skirts don't quite convey that aspect of the series.

                      Perhaps, but as retellings of The Romance of the Three Kingdoms go, this sure beats the shit out of those awful “games” Koei put out on the NES.
                      I recognize terror as the finest emotion and so I will try to terrorize the reader. But if I find that I cannot terrify, I will try to horrify, and if I find that I cannot horrify, I’ll go for the gross-out. I’m not proud.

                        That's what the show is about? I've been watching it wrong for years.

                          Yah....., screw the warlords! Everybody knows it's about girls beating the shit out of each other. That is when they're not sexually molesting each other.

                          As for the warlords; they should just go to the afterlife and ah, get a life! Assuming there is a life in the afterlife and assuming the afterlife isn't as screwed up as the Soul Society afterlife in which case I don't blame them for wanting to hang around as girls in mini-skirts beating the shit out of......... Ah....., I've come full circle here...... haven't I?

                          Oh well....., in which case never mind!

                              In all fairness, the manga version plays up the roles of the reincarnated warlords and their destinies to a higher degree than the series ever did. At most the first season made an effort to get the point across that the magatama were heavily tied to their ancestral namesake, and that their lives were effectively destined to repeat history in the modern era. For the most part the anime eschews a great deal of that relation in the subsequent series, and it becomes what we know it for best, being an intense fighting show with a heaping of T & A supplied by torn clothing. It may not be so unique anymore, but I will say that of the bunch of brutal fighting series that have sexualized heroines, Ikkitousen just happens to be my favorite.
