Seconded. That's all I need to know.

Edit: If this is mecha, I remember sometime back reading an interview about someone from A-1 Pictures and how he said that they're making a new mecha show and it'd be better than Gundam.

This is all speculation though.

"Children of Japan. And those who were once children. Listen! This is not a dream. This is not fiction. In reality, your superheroes were always fighting. To teach viewers courage and the meaning of justice! No matter how many enemies there are. No matter how strong evil is. Just remember. Does any another country have so many heroes? Has any another country been protected by multiple superheroes? Stand with me, friends! Remember when you used to watch your superheroes!
Once you may have given up this dream. But today, you can be a hero!"

Oh, look, another grimdark edgy anime by the butcher. This is what we needed: it's not like he knows only one way to write a story. Anime is saved.

Jizzy as you would call yourself because youre a dick The most butthurt award goes to you And clearly you havent watched that many shows thats why you cant determine if a show is unique or not Or maybe you're just a child who likes common stuffs where hero saves the day and guys gets all the girls. Sad taste you have there kid you came up to me in the first place making you look more like a kid who got slapped without me even knowing it and start crying about it to me

Urobutcher and Aoki, this should be interesting, and a collab between A-1 and Troyca? (Is this that new studio that the director started up? This is my first time hearing of this company)

Hahaha seconded. The guy can't write a likeable character to save his life (or a round one for that matter).

Fate Zero, Madoka and to an extent Psycho Pass have all been shit. Gargantia I didn't even bother finishing.

Too boring.
Announcements I look forward to reading:

"Haganai Season 3 green-lit"
"White Album 2 Season 2 green-lit"
"Naruto Manga Ends"
"Bleach Manga Ends"
"Nakashima Kazuki takes writing classes"
"Gen Urobuchi writes something that doesn't bore (or kill off characters to keep interest)"
"Studio SHAFT adopts a new style and guess what it isn't obnoxious"

The first key visual is debuting at the Shibuya Q's wall display in Tokyo on Sunday, and it will then be at Animate stores nationwide starting February 18.


Whelp the fact they are using Animate to market this show means its not for me. Oh well

Gundam Build Fighters is fantastic as is Code Geass Akito The Exiled and Gundam Unicorn to name a few, but thanks for your uninformed opinion.

Anyway the whole superseding Gundam thing is typical Aniplex arrogance and hyping so I wouldn't put too much weight behind it but there's no reason this can't still be a good show. It just annoys me how their basic approach is to everything is to throw currently popular staff names at each other, get them to try to work together and then hype the crap out of the show with over the top statements. You can't just surpass an all time classic by doing the exact same thing you always do, especially considering Gundam's legacy came down to a lot of special circumstances and being a formative anime at a time when the industry was still finding it's footing and audience.

My prediction based on Aniplex staff choice habits is one of Yuki Kajiura, Hiroyuki Sawano or Taku Iwasaki on music. These are names people like and which inspire a lot of hype similar to Gen Urobuchi and "That guy that directed Fate/Zero which was also hyped to the highest of heights" will be used to pull in people that are on the fence about watching the show.

Seriously though I know I sound cynical as hell and am a bit when it comes to Aniplex but my love of mecha will probably over take it before long....it's just going to be really hard not to crack wise about some of these things as it's airing.

I thought I was the only one who thought that! Also, it's not much but the fact that it's key visual is gonna be shown at Animate gives me a tiny feeling it'll have bishies. I hope so.
