According to TBS, Busou Shinki Moon Angel, previously released as a 10-episode series of 5-minute shorts on PlayStation Store from September 7, 2011 to January 6, 2012, has now opened a new homepage within TBS announcing a TV anime adaptation under new staff members to be released this fall. The title for the TV series is "Busou Shinki".

A bit more information about the staff, courtesy of ANN:

Director: Yasuhito Kikuchi (Infinite Stratos, Macross Frontier)
Series Script Editor: Masahiro Yokotani (Maria Holic; Steins;Gate, K-ON! scripts)
Character Design: Takahiro Kishida (Madoka Magica, Cheburashka Arere?)
Character Design/Chief Animation Director: Ryouma Ebata (Blue Exorcist; Welcome to THE SPACE SHOW's animation director's assistant)
Animation Production: 8-Bit (Infinite Stratos, Aquarion Evol)

Having staff from Macross, IS, Steins;Gate, Madoka, Welcome to the Space Show and Aquarion EVOL makes this really interesting.
Moon Angel was fairly decent for a such a short series, let's see what this new staff can do with the franchise.

Mixed feeling towards the staff, but i guess more on the positive side. I'll just finish the 5-minute shorts and ready to watch this.

Looks like it's another mecha anime, I think.

After watching the Shorts I thought that this needed a proper series.

The ONA was so-so. Not really excited for this.

I'm actually quite interested in seeing how this TV series ends up. Always nice seeing 15 cm tall battle robots fighting it out, and I hope they do that finally in a tournament setting in some way, shape, or form. Hoping people won't compare this to Infinite Stratos....much.

Been wanting a Busou Shinki anime since I got into Battle Rondo.

Too many staff members connected to IS. The fights and the girls were okay, but the rest was really weak. I will give it a go though, the OVAs were okay.

I'll give it a try. That said, I'll check out the ONA series first.

I've seen a trailer on ANN, and I am not a fan of the CG which is constantly used.

I could totally dig some 3S sized units in SRW, so sure. The ONA wasn't bad either!

Welp, the ONA were REALLY REALLY bad in some aspects, so I don't have any faith in this. Unless they rethink like a lot of the scenario, premise, and... everything, then nah.

I can see some potential in this, but it could also end up horribly wrong. But anyways, it looks pretty interesting to me

Hope this time around it gets proper full-length episodes. I'm a little bugged by the typos in names but whatever. Actually, more so than wanting full-length episodes and a decent amount of them, I want to see this in a more accessible format rather than being exclusive to Japan like everything Konami tries to do with the Busou Shinki franchise. PSP episode DLC is fine and all, and so was releasing the DVD, but have more faith in your franchise and let the whole world experience without the need for fansubs and what not. Busou Shinki has more than enough fans and potential outside of Japan.

These days everywhere I go I see people bitching. Be it new Anime, Games or Technology. Is this some new fad or something?

Once in a while, when enough people are tired of bitching all the time and want a change of pace a hype is created, to fulfill people's need for appreciating something, because they were bleating about stuff all the time. At the same time, those who haven't had enough of bleating and moaning make up the opposition to the hype, the haters.

Why can't you guys just stop making up reasons to hate something and just enjoy?
And don't start with "no story" and the likes, because Busou Shinki probably has way more story than hyped animes like K-On or Bakemonogatari for example.

If it's so hard to not be a hater, just stop watching anime altogether and wait for the next hype and only watch those. Comments like "I pass" are just useless, nobody cares. If you have to criticize things to prevent yourselves from braking down mentally, at least make it Constructive Criticism!
If not, please abide by this general rule:
If you don't have anything nice to say, don't say anything at all.

As simple as that.

Wasn't sure about this until I heard about the ONA and watched. I really liked the ONA, so I'm going to watch the series for sure.

Quoted for truth. If people don't like the Busou Shinki Anime then they don't like it. People saying "pass" and "I hate this" only saying that because its the "cool thing" to do, like rap music was and playing WoW + Halo. Just give it a whirl; if peeps don't like it then they don't like it ^^. Don't force yourself into hating things just because other people are doing it, you aren't you then.

And I'll have to vouche for Busou Shinki having serious stories, just have to know where to look for it! Battle Rondo (Dead MMO now) had them and Battle Masters has more. Just search and you'll find more!

I agree with you on that, makes no sense that they "hate it" and etc.
I wil definitely give this a try. You can't dislike something that hasn't come out yet based on your assumptions...:/
