It was announced during AnimeJapan 2015 that the Aquarion franchise will be receiving a third series, Aquarion Logos, and a special OVA to commemorate the 10th anniversary of the series. The OVA will be a crossover of the first two Aquarion series, Sousei no Aquarion and Aquarion Evol, aptly titled Sousei no Aquarion Evol. Both anime will premiere in Summer 2015.

Aquarion Logos Synopsis
In a world where social networks have greatly expanded in society, we use words that don't mean anything to us. However, in the world of Logos, these words have caused irregular incidents that affect the real world. The Sousei (Voice of Creation) group and Akira Kaibuki face the danger of the world while trying to solve the meaning of these words. What will be the newfound power if these words meet Aquarion? The new age that has reached 10 years of coexisting with robots is starting!

Loli in my Aquarion ^.^ Gotta love this new season xD

As for the EvoL OVA, I expect it to be short alternative version like Sousei no Aquarion (2007) was.

Godammit Kawamori/Satelight why are you doing this to me? the staff is horrendous not only is Kawamori not directly involved no (granted he is probably busy with the new Macross anime) the script writer has to be Jun Kumagai the guy that hasn't written one good anime yet

And by god those character designs are awful

I liked Evol. So that would give this one good credibility for me already. But Logos's slutty, horny tomboy doesn't look as slutty and horny as Evol's slutty, horny tomboy. Talking about Zessica. I need her in this.

As one of my nostalgic series, a 3rd season only intrigued me to excitedly wonder how it'd be. But looking at the cover and watching the PV, the animation quality is far from good and the character designs are horrible, which is not a good start...

After all that faggotery in Evol I don't think I'll touch this franchise again. Especially with that kind of character design.

Oh boy not again

The cast this time I don't think it will be any better than the previous one

I guess the only thing I'm looking forward to is May'n song !!

So this is gonna be the another cycle (of reincarnation)?
bla bla bla
The endless debate between fans and haters. At one point, after spending a lot of time on MAL, you just realize it's totally pointless.

I enjoyed both Sousei no Aquarion and Aquarion Evol. Hopefully, this will be as good or better.

But I haven't even been able to get through the first series, and that one has Sugita Tomokazu! The character designs look ugly anyway :c

Sousei no Aquarion is still the best for me but I will check it in case it's not as cheap as Evol... even if after watching the PV I find the CD not really appealing.

Maybe I'm just too attached to the first, though.

Yeah I tried to get into this series, just didn't really click with me. Something about the characters having orgasms with their mobile suits kinda threw me off.

Might give it another chance some day.

Same, though I did read about the first series when I realized that I was watching a sequel and was like what's everyone talking about? But yeah, seeing Hamatora (and Psycho Pass 2) script writer up there...NOPE. Well I'll still watch a few episodes just cuz I'm curious.

Awesome!!!!!!!!!
Fish use the water surrounding their bodies to sense what will happen next... you can't fight the current you have to flow with it. If you do that, you might just catch the fish.
