I hear ToAru 3 is supposed to be really good. Well, I'm sure it'll be adapted. The synopsis sounds dull, but judging from the PV, it doesn't look that bad though.

Never heard of this LN, it's worth a try since it's not the typical Dengeki Bunko fare.

Dengeki Bunko has no "typical fare". Just what are you talking about? O_o

I hope it will be a 2 cour but the question is what studio? I'm hoping for White Fox.
Well seeing the 10th anniversary PV and the anime adaption PV were animated by JC Staff, I'm guessing it's JC Staff...
Sigh...

I looked at the cast of characters and the names make me laugh hard Alicia Sloppyjoes. Much original~
There's more where that came from:

>Mariydi Whitewitch
>Wraith Martini Vermouthspray
>Mariage Nightcap

Sounds like your average LN adaptation but I'll probably give it a chance and try it.

Kazuma Kamachi's naming sense for english names is as "good" as always xD

Delicious indeed.

I don't know who in their right mind would want JC staff to continue adapting Index with the garbage adaptation so far. They did Railgun well but they completely screw up Index. Do fan of this series eagerly await JC Staff to shit all over what they like?

The team behind Railgun can showed that they can do goo adaptations as long as they dont add fillers and arent fanboying over Saten.

So you read this LN as well?
You sure have a lot of free time to spent on bad LNs you only know from the adaptations.Oh wait this doesnt even have that.

basically this.

Looks like a generic piece of shit with generic everything. welcome to the world of light novels: Where most everything is retarded and people have stupid names like bjarni vrodegurd

Heavy object is an excellent series. I'm sure it could surprise with how non-typical it is as a mecha anime.

I was planning on reading this LN after I got caught up on Index. Nice to see another one of Kamachi's works get an anime.

I liked the manga, and I'm looking forward to an anime adaptation. It's based on an interesting sci-fi premise, technology that offers a 'clean' war, and handles it pretty well. Good sense of humor too. Those who don't like the military genre might not enjoy it so much, though.

Actually this PV is interested me because I had read the Novel and It's very badass!!
The story is about normal guys tried fight the giant mech and very much giving the vibe of Hollywood action movie and Metal Gear Solid

Well, I have the same mixed feeling with JC Staff adaptation of Index and Peter Jackson adaptation of The Hobbit. I know the final product will suck, but it doesen't stop me to be hyped for seeing works I like so much on screen.
That and I love most of the VA on this series.

I know right!!! I love them together :) The PV looks alright since it's just a peek of a scene, but will be watching just for these two, or at least trying it out.

I can't get out of my head that if something happens to Alicia someone would yell "NOOOOOO SLOPPYJOESSSSSS"

I don't think I would be able to take the series seriously after that.

Personally i'd prefer A simple survey to get animated instead (though i've no idea how it'd look like in animated form) of this one. The former is pure tsukkomi gold that made me laugh uncontrollably while the latter looks like your usual sci fi-action flick.

what a lotta people complaining about it , well i was one of them, but i must say that was not a bad announce at all , though everyone was expecting Index III , we got another adaption from kamachis'novels, it's better than another bag , drink or figure.

Huh, I was a little skeptical when I read this was a LN, but after watching the PV it doesn't look too bad, plus there's no harem/ecchi to ruin it. Count me in.

And please, no CGI mecha...

A simple survey is completed and there's literally no reason to make an anime of it since it would hardly sell any LNs.

It would be fun though as an OVA but it will be extremely difficult to adapt properly and like Watashi said, it'll not be profitable

He's been doing it for years. He'll then go away and watch the series with the sole intention of finding reasons to hate it. And then he inevitably does hate it because if you go into something with that attitude you wil always find something to complain about, even if it's something that's actually entirely superficial and insignificant. Which he will then use as alleged proof that he was right all along and that everyone else was stupid to even consider that he wouldn't be.

And then a couple of people who are seemingly incapable of independent thought and who devote their entire lives to automatically agreeing with everything he says will agree with him, and he will interpret that as proof that everyone has accepted that what he said was right. And then wonder why people criticise his largely baseless predictions whenever one of these threads come out.

Well, the machines don't have the usual humanoid design.
Probably that's why I like it so much.

Later I realized Barbotage's VA is the same as Aldnoah Zero Inaho.
How convinient.
