It looks pretty underwhelming, but then again I've rated everything Urobuchi wrote 10/10 (save for Madoka 9/10), so I'll probably love it.

But, CG is why I doubt I'll watch very much mecha in the future. I understand and that it's here to stay with anything mecha, and I doubt the trend will ever reverse at this point. I get why it's done and accept the reality of what has happened from a technological standpoint. And I'll continue to give at least some mecha shows a shot. But I feel I'll find less and less I can watch until the genre just closes out completely for me. I'll be surprised if we get more than a small handful of major series with any 2D mechs again, outside of maybe Gundam (and it's only a matter of time there).


Yeah, I really disliked in Unicorn 5 considering the others used CG in a much less noticeable way. I don't mind if they blend some CG tricks to (like the earlier unicorn ovas did) to make it look natural and allow for CG use, but full on CG just looks so out of place. I really dislike it.

The same guy who did Madoka and designs giving me a Tengen Toppa Gurren feel.
Definitely will watch.

it doesn't look that interesting? Although there's some surprises like madoka later.. I'll wait for another PV.

I'll probably end up watching it plus Urobuchi is writing it so everything up to the 3rd episode could be a lie.

Main heroine looks really, really cute. That makes me fear for her though, cute girls never get it easy in Urobuchi works.

If the episodes are 20+, I will give it maximum 7-8 episodes before dropping it if I end up not liking it. Will see. I hope it's good since it's Urobuchi. I liked Madoka and I'm currently very into PP.

So Tell me how fate/zero Sucked?(I won't open a discussion unless u actually tell me u read the fate/stay night novel) because u would have no idea whats going on in most of the anime.

Is no one going to point out that on MAL this anime is listed as airing FROM FEB 9, 2013?

I thought it was airing in April, and a Google search seemed to back that up.

^ Yes it will start in April.
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.

As if there wasn't enough to watch this sping? God damnit :P
I loved Fate/Zero and Madoka(even if they are the things that are cool to hate at the second).
I really am enjoying Psycho pass, I really don't mind the slow pace for the most part as it gives the story time to develop and it has some great openings. And I am currently loving Phantom requim for the Phantom although I have 5 episodes left until I finish it.
So overall...yes I am looking forward to this, although I think we are dangerously close to hitting a bit of overload with Urobuchi due to how much stuff by him we have had lately.

People just like to feel different, so they hate what is popular. Sure some people will have genuine reasons but most people just hate whats popular to be hipster.
For another example look at Mirai Nikki, a show that ended up with a massive fanbase last year. And yet you can't look anywere without finding massive amounts of people saying they hate it.

Don't set your expectation too much on that though. He is again stressing it is nothing like what he did before and he wanted to be positive and the main idea is to stress on growth and active participation in the wider world and society (he said this anime is for those young people who have just started working and engaging in the society). Of course we know he did not tell the truth back in Madoka, so who knows. But I guess we should bear in mind the possibility that Urobuchi may not be UroBUTCHER so much this time round.

I'm.....not entirely sure that Urobuchi is even capable of writing something lighthearted.
It's like he has this uncontrollable compulsion to make things look as cute as possible on the outside, and then destroy the cuteness and innocence in every way (in)humanly possible.

Fully expecting the real theme to be "Positive (i.e. naive and optimistic) characters, undergoing growth (immense pain builds character like nothing else), while learning to participate with others in the wider world (by learning the hard way that you can't trust anyone and that you have to do unspeakable things to get by in the world)".

Seriously, I love his stuff, but why sugar-coat it? It'll be fun for a while, but eventually no one will believe him and the sucker-punch plot trolling won't be as funny anymore.

^ Well, it can be earnest and serious without being gory or grim, right? It does not have to be lighthearted to write a story that is positive, right? Not saying he is definitely not trolling this time, but I guess we should be open to the possibility of Urobuchi trying something a bit different from what he has done before.

Or to take it from the horse's mouth.

If I recall correctly, he was hospitalized a long time ago, and "living like a dead man" made him the cynical angst-pusher he is today.

Hey there is absolutely nothing wrong with having some darker/cynical stories out there. If anything it balances out all the relatively happy slice of life series out there.
