I just saw the first episode, and I can't really say anything else other than that the series looks promising. The animation is...unique, but who wants to see the same style over and over anyway. It really is enjoyable in its own right. Plus I'm big on story, and the retelling of Pinocchio sounds great. If you have insomnia such as myself, it's definitely worth checking out.
