@symbv : Oh man, to think that ANN is one of my primary source for anime news... I must be more careful at taking information, then. Thanks for pointing it out!
Well, I guess ANN is kind of "authoritative by default" because there is not really much competition in terms of getting anime/manga news from Japan. I do hope that they can raise their news report standard and quality though, if only for the sake of the many anime/manga fans in the west who are desperate for news from Japan.

Granted, the original ANN article only said that the plan was to air this in fall, so it was not a firm commitment of date. Delay is always possible.

^ Seems that ANN did not get its source right then. This is not unheard of though. I have seen cases when it reported on something (often without giving its source) and then had to retract or modify it later.

^ That ANN news site, which quoted a 2ch summary site, only said it is a 26 episode TV series. Nothing about that it is coming in fall though.


I thought they stated it at the end.

Or did they define another title? Correct me if I'm wrong.

I just checked another old source (from the same site, though) regarding exodus. But woah, it had been edited.


Felt like I've been trolled, so yeah. Green-lit for next year they said, but what year and what season? It remains mystery.

What is the actual airing date for Exodus?
I heard it's listed for fall anime, yet I don't see this in fall chart.
I wonder where it is listed that this is a fall anime because as far as I know no airing date has been released yet.
It was on the list, but it was taken off - which is something that really annoyed me to no end.
On what list? In MAL?


As for me, I read the news here
They planned to release exodus in summer/fall. Since it didn't appear in summer chart, I thought the date changed to fall. But still none.

So it was taken off, huh... I hope they can make it for winter list, though.

It's awful and very boring. I don't recommend it at all. The ova prequel is worth watching though.

awesome! another 26 episodes of goodness!

judging from how much time they have put into this (announcement was in 2011 about exodus), we should have a good plot coming our way!

Yeah it is. And it is on the Xebec Zwei site. Basically the main information there is a TV series of 26 episodes is being made. That's it.

This interests me, I've yet to see the first season or the movie but the Seed character designs might put me off. I liked Seed a lot, I hated Destiny but watching the same characters in a different anime is going to be weird as hell.

Seeing Shinn in the picture for the movie was already pushing it for me. Well, a second season will push me to watch the series.

So I finished watching the anime series, OVA and the movie. I'm still finding a hard time in the movie who lived and died in the movie.
