You and me both, you and me both.

I'm hoping the original series from them next year is on a large scale. Personally I'd love to see the Eureka Seven team reunite and do a big story, and it is certainly possible, I just don't see it happening.

I am curious as to what they have up their sleeves.

I enjoy mecha series, sometimes. But I really like BONES mecha. Its something that they do differently somehow, that sets them apart. I can't really put my finger on it. Even Captain Earth, which is very much into you mileage may vary territory, has it.

I don't think that their original series will be a mecha though. I don't have any proof of this, but they seem like they usually do a mecha series every 2 years or so.

Clockwork Fighters 2000
Rahxephon 2002
Mars Daybreak 2004
Eureka Seven 2005
Xam'd 2008
Heroman 2010
Star Driver 2010
Eureka Seven AO 2012
Captain Earth 2014

Sure there is some variation, but since they keep losing money on their mecha series, I imagine they will probably do something quite different to try and make back some money.

honestly it looks more like 2 cour series are coming back than what they were a few years ago, we are just seeing them as split cours.

And yeah tenkai knights isnt what im looking for, I too am kind of on the "I want another eureka 7" boat, not in the sense of I want another 50 episode mecha, but I want a long series on the same scale as that series was. This may be caused by me watching after war gundam X, its been absolutly fantastic so far and its similarities to eureka 7 are pretty damn signifigant, they both go for seperate things so im not saying E7 is a rip off but its really bringing out my desire to experience another series like E7.

Well they did make Tenkai Knights, but I don't think that's what you're looking for xD

I'd love a long original series from them. But with the way the industry is now, its hard to create original properties that are very long. Heck original properties that are only 2 cour are slipping away pretty rapidly...

I just really want another 50 episode series from them, i really dont care the genre.

I'm really surprised that they haven't done a Shonen Jump series yet. Since those always end up being pretty popular. Admittedly there is one that will be getting an anime soon, and I like it a lot, so I'm biased, but I would like to see them do it!

Also, I think I mentioned before, but I think they should do an adaption of Vagabond. I haven't read the manga, but I got the first VizBig edition today, and I've heard nothing but good about it. Plus its won a lot of awards, and is nearing the end of its run. So I think an anime adaption would be rather fitting now. It would probably be 80-100 episodes though, so they might want to skip out on it. But they are doing 3 adaptions next year, so who knows?

I still want to see them do a Magical Girl show, since I've apparently kindled an interest in the genre for some reason.

Production I.G has a entirely different creative agenda than Bones. If you notice, I.G doesn't really produce anime that doesn't sell. They tend to adapt works that already have a loyal following, and they do so with the expectation of commercial success. Of course, I.G is incredibly good at picking projects that click with the mass and you don't see a huge audience divide, which also means they are on average more mainstream and doesn't take a whole lot of commercial risk. On the other hand, Bones is a bit more whimsical and tends to make things that reflect Bones style rather than capitalizing on already popular franchise. Case in recent years, all of Bones adaptions have been quite anonymous. Also, Bones does have a genre slant (Sci-fi, fantasy, action), while I.G doesn't really, they just go for w.e is popular.

I'm actually surprised Bones hasn't thought of picking up something more mainstream, it would certainly bring in more cash. They sure have enough credential to convince the publishers.

BONES could easily do sports. Production I.G headed the Haikyuu!! animated project, which is an enormous success (and one of the very few sports shows I actually really love) so it all depends on originality and how they animate it.
Haikyuu's animation is a wonder to look at, and BONES could probably easily make something on its level if they're given a high-enough budget. Basically if Production I.G, hardly a company that animates sports shows, can do it, so can BONES pff.

I think its actually doing pretty well with airing numbers. It's just the sales are not very good in Japan at all.

So I highly doubt a movie will be made. Although it would have been awesome...

I have to wonder is there really a genre of show that BONES hasn't done yet? I mean they have action, fantasy, mecha, reverse harem, Shonen Ai, yuri (if you can't Kurau, which I don't), history, western (Cowboy Bebop movie), psychological, science fiction, disaster, tournament, post-apocalyptic, comedy, tragedy, drama, mystery, slice of life, and moe.

The only two that I can think of that they haven't touched is sports, and magical girl.

I would actually like to see them do a magical girl show, considering that's the "in thing" now after Madoka. I mean when "psychological mecha" was at its peak due to Evangelion, they made RahXephon. Which I actually find to be better. Maybe they could come up with an interesting magical girl show.

Sports would be a little mundane, since I'm not really a fan of sports. But I think they could probably come up with an interesting take on it.

That's one of the things I love about BONES, they don't stick to one genre. They have an incredibly diverse body of work, which I think is wonderful. They don't typecast themselves.
