Not impressed by the trailer if I have to be perfectly honest. The preview poster made it look very exciting, I was hoping for something for something along the lines of Gundam 00 (which I maintain to be the best mecha series ever) but upon having read the synopsis of this upcoming series, I just cannot bring myself to be excited for it and will thus likely not watch it purely because high school kids and mecha rarely go along well together.

Mecha is a genre I feel I've watched enough to be bored of, but the OP/ED line-up is far too good to pass by. Will definitely give this a try.


Will buy the CDs for sure, BDs not so sure...

Katsura Hoshino did the characters design? That kind of unexpected.

For some reason that mecha kind remind me of Barnaby's suit a little, probably the red & the pointy green thing.

Am i the only one who thought the best thing about SUNRISE was the fact they used drawn stocks for mecha and not CGI? sure CGI is more fluid, but i dont really think it looks better, it just looks out of place

The CG mecha looks alright I guess. I don't hate it as much I hate the generic character design in this show.
