I have no idea what to think about this because it didn't tell you what it is at all just a bunch of characters.
Im assuming it's Mecha since those others kids are wearing "Plugsuit" type jumpsuit things and theres 2 Mecha lookin things in the background.
Looking forward to something Mecha thats maybe good because I haven't watched anything Mecha past Gurren Lagann and Eva since iv never heard anything good about anything else except Gundam and Gun/Diebuster.
Yay Ishikai in the cast! Still not sure what to think with PA Works doing mecha, but I'm willing to stay open-minded. Mecha is still not my go-to genre, but it's PA Works, and I'm fan of their visuals and many of their works so I'd watch regardless. Looking forward to what they'll bring to the table this time (would still rather see a slice of life though from them).
Ao Haru Ride/Meganebu composer is nice, although I haven't heard any intense music from him yet. The more I look at the character designs, the more I like it. Series composition guy did the script for a few episodes of Uchouten Kazoku, hopefully that means good for this series, although this one is an original and not an adaptation.

The poster looks like someone cut and pasted some PA Works characters on top of an unrelated mecha anime visual and said, "so, whadyathink?" The characters are just floating there... I love PA Works' style but I dunno. I'm getting some M3 vibes for this one, both story and sales. We'll see.
