I can't believe an anime nobody knows about gets more than 1 season. It must be quite popular in Japan and is doing well in the sales department (which I doubt).

Heaven and Earth was honestly the best ending Fafner's story could have had, so I can't say I'm thrilled to hear this. :/

The only problem I have with this is that they're still using those godawful SEED character designs.

SEED was ugly in 2002 and it's still ugly now.

I still need to purchase the first volume of the dvd series. I oddly enough have volumes 2 through 7, but not the first one. But hey, they were 2 bucks a piece, so it didn't hurt to grab them when I had a chance. Guess I should really get to it then.

Why is it that things that have perfect endings that resolve everything always get raped up the but by the dreaded Cash Cow.

The Fafner ANIME ended well enough. Didn't need a movie.

You mean an anime you don't know. You're not everybody.

It must be quite popular in Japan and is doing well in the sales department (which I doubt).

It sold 7,136 average. Not a blockbuster, but strong enough for a sequel for most shows. The only strange part is that it's been so relatively long... ~7 years.

I thought the first series was decent (agree about the character designs being no so great though) so I guess I'll need to watch the movie at some point before this airs.

Edit - but we don't yet know if this is a TV series or OVA or movie, right?

The movie was released last year, and before that it made it's debut in the well received Super Robot Wars K.

So those probably played more of a factor then the seven year old show.

I am actually glad to read this. I watched the 1st tv series years ago and I enjoyed it, it was the 1st mecha anime I finished. Also, there have been way to few mecha anime released lately so that is another reason why I am happy to hear about this new Fafner anime.

All the characters are hard to distinguish from one another. They all look similar. D:

This interests me, I've yet to see the first season or the movie but the Seed character designs might put me off. I liked Seed a lot, I hated Destiny but watching the same characters in a different anime is going to be weird as hell.

Seeing Shinn in the picture for the movie was already pushing it for me. Well, a second season will push me to watch the series.

Yeah it is. And it is on the Xebec Zwei site. Basically the main information there is a TV series of 26 episodes is being made. That's it.
So MAL finally starts locking news threads that are only a few weeks old?

I wonder where was the announcement of this change? Or we are seeing yet another case of changes made that impacted users but not communicated to them?

I wonder how long people would put up with this.

As much as I have a bunch of information to share about anime announced recently I cannot share it in news board, and the anime series is too disorganized and chaotic to share information except with people already interested in the particular series.

awesome! another 26 episodes of goodness!

judging from how much time they have put into this (announcement was in 2011 about exodus), we should have a good plot coming our way!

As for me, I read the news here
They planned to release exodus in summer/fall. Since it didn't appear in summer chart, I thought the date changed to fall. But still none.

So it was taken off, huh... I hope they can make it for winter list, though.

^ That ANN news site, which quoted a 2ch summary site, only said it is a 26 episode TV series. Nothing about that it is coming in fall though.

I thought they stated it at the end.

Or did they define another title? Correct me if I'm wrong.

I just checked another old source (from the same site, though) regarding exodus. But woah, it had been edited.


Felt like I've been trolled, so yeah. Green-lit for next year they said, but what year and what season? It remains mystery.

^ Seems that ANN did not get its source right then. This is not unheard of though. I have seen cases when it reported on something (often without giving its source) and then had to retract or modify it later.
