I thought they were making a new season of Digimon again. Looks like Digimon Tamer's Guilmon. Even his evolution person beside it looks like Gallantmon.

Weird mecha, not too much to my liking but character design looks promising, and more importantly its Bones. There's potential.

Also, I think it's wearing sunglasses.

An anime-original BONES anime is never a bad thing.

Bones need to stop messing around with mecha series ... they're never that great at it ... Eureka 7 is overrated -.-

and this new mecha look like crap (according to the official site)

on a 2nd look... the script writer does have a very nice resume (NGE, RahXephon, etc. for those that are mecha related) ... may have to hold my breath on this one

It has been a while since I've seen a new mecha design, I like.

Every single mecha show I've seen by bones was great, definitely watching this.

Actually BONES has 4 sub-studio to animate different titles,much like Sunrise & Production I.G did to their anime.

Studio A:Heroman
Studio B:GOSICK (probably)
Studio C:Star Driver (cue Igarashi directing this)
Studio D:Fullmetal Alchemist:Brotherhood

My bet is GOSICK & Star Driver will be aired next Fall season (but the latter maybe aired in Winter if they planned for 24+ episode).

Since Igarashi (Director of Ouran) & Enokido(Script-writer of NGE,FLCL&RahXephon) involved,i'm sure this will be good.

Anyway, looks like Bones are up to more crap. Nice job guys.

Yeah, "Shining Tact" doesn't really make any sense. Sounds like a weapon in Pretty Cure :P

I'm sure it's supposed to be Takuto.

Not true. It's written with katakana, thus it's supposed to be a non-Japanese name. Yes it would be pronounced as "Takuto", but still romanized as "Tact".

That's speculation at best. Until they come out with a proper romanised name, I think we'll keep Takuto, since there are plenty of other possibilities, Tacto, Takt, Takto, Tacuto, and probably some others.

And no, katakana does not necessarily mean the name is supposed to be non-Japanese, Haruhi's name is written in katakana and she's as Japanese as they come. Sometimes it's just used to be different or cool.

Of course, I may have missed something very obvious but that's ok, this won't be coming out for a while so we have time to fix.

And don't even expect the 'official' romanization to be constant. See Real Mayer: リアル (I think) has been transliterated Real, Re-l, or Rill Mayar or Mayer. Then there's those really weird official spellings, mostly R/L relted (Kallen/Karen, see).

Shit. My first thought reading that was: "Shining Tact, Shining Fact, Shining Fart..."

Apparently it's リル・メイヤー, and the Re-l romanisation is based on an anime episode which has both Re-l and Real on-screen, go figure.

As for Kallen, I like to believe both names are acceptable, Kallen Stadtfeld vs. Kouzuki Karen. I still call her Kallen but...

Worst case scenario, we wait for a license ^^

I was going to respond "someone needs to watch RahXephon", and then I checked your list and saw that you gave it a 10. Clearly they're capable of making a mecha show you like, then. (Admittedly, this doesn't look very RahXephon-like, but we've barely seen anything yet.)

Anyway, I'd normally say "it's BONES, so it'll obviously be good", but after Heroman I'm not so sure anymore. Still, I'll definitely be checking this out.
