The official site for "Captain Earth" launched and announced that it will be broadcasted in Spring 2014.

Rough Translation of the Synopsis
One night right before summer vacation, Daiji Manatsu, a second-year in high school, sees a weird round rainbow floating in the sky above Seed Island (Shuushi/Tane Island) and ventures there alone. He has seen this rainbow before. With the memories of his father's mysterious death and an encounter of a mysterious boy and girl, Daiji arrives on the island while the alarm of a building labeled "Earth Engine" is going off. Someone asks him "Are you a captain?" just as robotic intruders from Uranus called "Kiltgang" arrive. The battle around the shining stars is about to begin.

hype hype hype

Apparently this is going to be a much darker mecha story and have life endangering battles from what the interviews were saying, so this will likely be a very very different in tone and style from star driver

Also that mech looks like tauburn after major steroid binges

Tsubasa you should really try and fix the broken English in the description

"memory of meeting mysterious boy and girl"

"with mysterious robotic intruders from Uranus called “Kiltgang” came"

"What their plan? "

Looks like the mecha has a captain hat on it's head, that's a nice touch.

I'll definitely watch this for the Spring season although the PV so far isn't too impressive imo.

With my high hopes for Space Dandy and Noragami I'm not sure this can generate similar expectations in me. Still gonna keep my eyes open for when it comes around.

If that is true then I will really be looking forward to this.

Bones + Original Story + Mecha = Win (In my book at least)

Not gonna lie, thought it was that blue weirdo in tights.

Aside from the cheesy 90's reference in my head this looks pretty nice.

Looks like they already released an ending theme teaser. Here it is.

It kinda reminds me of Gundam 00. Let's hope it's not as bad as Gundam 00. As long as it's like Star Driver, I'm alright with it.

Looks great, but the character design is so uninspired again. Also, where did the female mecha main heroines go?

After watching the PV it feels like another "strong emotion gives more power" type of show, but nonetheless it seems great, and no female cast? :)

Can't bring myself to be excited about this news though. Aside from not really into mecha genre to begin with, Bones' previous mecha series have been complete miss for me. Eureka seven AO was completely pointless storytelling and characterization-wise, while Star Driver was only mildly entertaining at best, never managed to pull its punches for the most part and suffered a lot from repetitive monster-of-the-week format. If they really want to make a new mecha series, they'd better bring out their A-card this time.

On the bright side though, i generally prefer the stylitic flair of Bone's mecha series more than Sunrise's

More curious how Bones will do with the series than with the premise itself.

Just because it's from the crew who make Star Driver, I want this to be bishounen Captain Planet.

This seems as a Sequel to Eureka AO (: Can anyone provide? The art is almost 1:1 with that of the Eureka 7 seasons (:
