Several announcements were made during today's press conference for the game from Square Enix, Gunslinger Stratos. They included a TV anime adaptation titled Gunslinger Stratos the Animation set to air Spring 2015.

Synopsis:
In the 22nd century, an island that used to be called Japan is now called "Seventeenth Far East Imperial City Management District." People who live a simple life believe that everyday will be same; however, a disease called "deglation" attacks people. "Deglation" is a disease where people crumble like sand for no reason. The disease slowly destroys the world.

A normal student named Tooru Kazasumi somehow gets involved in an argument in another world called "Frontier S (Stratos)." That also means fighting with another self.

It's a war between two worlds.

It looks like another Spring title as well. I'll wait to see how this goes. The PV video seems to be blocked btw in some countries.

Inb4 he only writes the first 3 episodes, and has nothing to do with the characters.

I might check it out though, it could be a fun watch next Spring.

Also really unfamiliar with the director so far.

Well, I did a quick search and seems like he was involved with storyboard/ episode director roles including shows like SnK, Guilty Crown, Kimi ni Todoke, etc

This is the video for the game and not for the anime. The timestamp is March of last year.

Official website of the game if anyone is curious.
A video of the gameplay as well.

"In the past few months since we met, I've shared many memories with Nagato. Though I've also shared memories with Haruhi, Asahina-san and Koizumi, I found that I've experienced more events with Nagato in particular. In fact, every situation seems to involve her. I might as well mention this, she's probably the only person to cause the bell within me to shake the most vigorously..." ~ Kyon, TMOSH

Was expecting something different from the title, something more western perhaps.
Does sound like something Urobuchi would write though, nice staff list too, not to mention the seiyuu list, my god, the character designs remind me a bit of Persona but only the guy who did the music for that is working on this, music was also good.
Watching it for sure.

Sigh, another show Urobuchi will be involved with the story, but he won't end up writing the show at all.
I just wish he would do less shows, and the shows he does end up doing would have a script written by him entirely.

The first three episodes of Aldnoah Zero (especially the third) were absolutely amazing, but everything after that (so the episodes that Urobuchi didn't write) were kind of disappointing, especially the "shock" ending and the fact that apparently almost all of the characters that supposedly

I know what to expect on this. A SoL Drama Horror or something those lines but Gen Urobuchi doing this kind of genre? Oh please no more similar to Gargantia.

Synopsis sounds like a mess, game adaptations usually suck and the trailer isn't exactly impressive. I do like Urobuchi, but I'm not sure how much he's really got to do with this. Some nice voice actors, I guess.
Could be alright, but I'm not really expecting a whole lot.

No. No no no no no. Why always students? The concept seems 'OK', but Jesus, why students? Can't something at least not have a school setting?

Also, more game adaptations. Great. //Sarcasm

So when is Karneval getting a second season?

Edit: What the fuck is up with those character designs?

B-but Gargantia's SoL episodes were amazing. This looks like a ruined city type setting so I doubt there'll be school at all.

I really don't like the sci-fi suppose to be story of Gargantia ended up focusing with SoL for the development.

Well beside that, I'm rather indifferent. I intend to check this once it is out but without expectation. After all Gen Urobuchi work on anime like Aldnoah and Psycho-Pass 2 is more of adviser for script instead of the one dealing with it.

Students aren't inherently bad protagonists, but "normal student" is a red flag for this sketchy synopsis.

Hmmmmmmmmm. So Urobuchi is not really doing the script, is he? He's just responsible for the original concept? Tch. I want a full fledged Urobuchi TV anime again. Anyway, this looks like it could be really great or really bad but...hmm.

Its a mixed cast so that's a plus from me but its a game adaptation and I tend to stay away from those. But its too early to judge things. I'll give it an episode or two.

Its been said before but usually anime with adults as main characters usually don't do well in disc sales. I'd like to see more adults as main protagonists in anime too.

Also, I'd like a Karneval remake soon and THEN a second season. Karneval is so good...

Huh, I don't know if I'd classify that as weird, but that sucks. I like older protagonists, like in seinen. I mean, teenagers are cool and all, but a change would be nice, ya know?

True that. True that. I liked the first season, but it seemed fast paced, and they left out so much comedy and development for Gareki. And Gareki is one of the best characters in terms of development.
