A new original anime project by Satou Junichi (Aria, Princess Tutu, Tamayura, Sergeant Keroro) was recently confirmed. The catchphrase in the announcement is "Zenryoku Gu Shoujo! Action!" (Full Force Idiotic Girl! Action!), but it is not known if this will become the title of the anime. According to the official website of the project, more information will be disclosed a week later on August 7th.

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.

Anyway, fans in Japan speculate that this is related to an old series Satou directed 10 years ago: http://myanimelist.net/anime/427/Kaleido_Star

I'll have to pass if it turns out to be Shoujo with no magical elements.

That would be wonderful, but what exactly lead to that conclusion? The video itself feels nothing like Kaleido Star.

If this is indeed related to Kaleido Star I'll have to pick that one up again. In any case looking forward to this :)

Aesthetic value can be recognized or experienced, but it cannot be conveyed to those who are incapable of grasping its sensations and perceptions. To quarrel on its behalf is always a blunder.

Even if he's making some moe-SOL he's still much better than 99% of other directors doing the same/ So I would be happy top watch it. But if it would be some action anime... Let's wait for more info.

Wow, the 16sec video explain a lot.

Don't expect something like Tamayura or Aria from this preview or site...

but if it's either cute girls doing cute things or something similar to Kaleido Star - both are most welcome.

I actually finished watching Princess Tutu lately and enjoyed it quite a bit. Seeing Junichi Sato's name makes my smile. Again, will look forward to this.

Wow, nice find by the Japanese fans. Kaleido Star is indeed in the source code, at the end of line 7, lol...

Oh yeah!
Full Force Idiotic Girl! Action!
Oh bollocks...

Well, since it's Satou Junichi I still hope for something good... No... With that kind of catchphrase and this director, I have no idea what to expect.

If it is related to another anime, can it still be called "original"?

I need to watch Kaleido Star if those rumours are true (meh, I will watch it even if they are not). I'm excited for this.

Satou Junichi has showed his skills in directing, so I'm trusting that he can pull something off.

When the tagline itself promises an idiotic girl, she must be the dumbest dumb to ever dumb.

That's an interesting catch phrase... I'll check it out since it's the director of Tamayura :3

I feel like this will be half slapstick comedy half action.
The PV didn't really pump me up but ill give it a go when it comes out!

Princess Tutu is a show I plan to watch and Tamayura is a show I'm enjoying right now so I am certain that I will look forward on this.

It sounds interesting because Satou Junichi is involved but there's too little information about it at the moment.

Back then, I heard there was supposed to be released a manga sequel to Kaleido Star but it was canceled. Perhaps it is this? Either way, for me, Kaleido Star is a complete story, I would not like anything more.

And the PV reminded me of Kill la Kill in a way...
