4th through 6th movie titles has been announced.

Well, the first movie has now been aired on TV and raw is out. I wonder what sub groups will pick this up.

And fyi, this is not mecha, so stop bitching.

First 7 min of the first movie here: http://anime.biglobe.ne.jp/title/4198/view/857/. Looks pretty good. The soundtrack is simply awesome.

Release dates for B/D and DVD of first movie to third movie are out. (basically two months after airing)

Also, two manga of Towa no Quon announced! (one is prequel to the first chapter, and another is the adaptation!)

used to not like ES when I was like 14, after all these years though and rewatching it I just get it a whole lot more. Hard to explain, anyways I think thats awesome and looking forward to this a lot.

I am sick of Bones, and I am especially sick of their mecha.

Stop trying to recreate ES (which in my opinion was trash) and go do something productive, like make a season two to DTB.


sooo true

Bones just suck with mecha, period.

This too
leave mecha to sunrise


yeah sunrise if u want gundam vs alien

Someone should walk up to BONES and slap them in the face, this fixation for robots is starting to grow stale on my book as well.

Didn't like Heroman that much (didn't watch it all to be honest), still stalling on Star Driver and now this.... as someone said, third time might be the charm and it's still BONES, so I will wait for it with anxiety as usual but with a huge amount of pre-conceptions floating around my head.

mecha is always welcome for me

Among their works, I've only watched Soul Eater and Eureka 7 so far. I liked the latter a lot, so I'll give it a shot.

I am sorry but what? Last good mecha series from sunrise was first season of gundam00. and thats after degenerate shows like seed, seed destiny, wing, which stuff like xam'd(which was practically masterpiece-y) and even (as sad as it is) star driver, beats in quality.

Recent sunrise adaptation of gundam pink unicorns fanfic certainly does NOT help its mecha genre reputation.

Sunrise has just as much to prove as Bones does in mecha genre.

Jan 1, 2011 7:57 AM by Alexstratz

Mech again? Is Bones running out of ideas??? They've got one of the best animation quality but they are wasting their production on lousy anime.... I mean from Darker than Black to Soul Eater to heroman and star driver???? COME ON!
