According to Gundam Ace magazine's February issue, BONES is producing a new anime entitled "Towa no Quon". The anime is a posthumous work of Iida Umanosuke, who passed away last November. It will be released next summer.
o rly? X'amd was nothing more then a Eureka 7 ripoff in case you missed it... plus it sucked. star driver was crap. but bones is my 2nd fav next to madhouse. i mean "berserk" "eureka 7" bones ftw! ill watch or drop once it comes out and i can see if i will dig it. oh and just for the record heroman wasnt supposed to be the greatest. it was supposed to appeal to the people who could appreciate it for its "throw back" factor. it wasnt the best but imma little old school so i enjoyed every minute of it, just my 2 cents

I really do hope this new mecha anime they are creating is as good as Eureka 7. I personally thought Eureka 7 was amazing. I'm also looking forward to the music they will be creating for this anime. Bones has a gift for creating epic music like in Soul Eater and Eureka 7. I will see how this new anime stacks overall compared to E7. I'm really looking forward to this now.
Mech again? Is Bones running out of ideas??? They've got one of the best animation quality but they are wasting their production on lousy anime.... I mean from Darker than Black to Soul Eater to heroman and star driver???? COME ON!
Detective said: I am sick of Bones, and I am especially sick of their mecha.
Stop trying to recreate ES (which in my opinion was trash) and go do something productive, like make a season two to DTB.
Bones just suck with mecha, period.
leave mecha to sunrise
I am sorry but what? Last good mecha series from sunrise was first season of gundam00. and thats after degenerate shows like seed, seed destiny, wing, which stuff like xam'd(which was practically masterpiece-y) and even (as sad as it is) star driver, beats in quality.
Recent sunrise adaptation of gundam pink unicorns fanfic certainly does NOT help its mecha genre reputation.
Sunrise has just as much to prove as Bones does in mecha genre.
Someone should walk up to BONES and slap them in the face, this fixation for robots is starting to grow stale on my book as well.
Didn't like Heroman that much (didn't watch it all to be honest), still stalling on Star Driver and now this.... as someone said, third time might be the charm and it's still BONES, so I will wait for it with anxiety as usual but with a huge amount of pre-conceptions floating around my head.
