Synopsis said:
The story of the anime is set in the year Mobile Century 8013. It has been over seven millennia since humanity was wiped out on Earth, but the surviving military robots continue to wage war with no end in sight. The war has embroiled the Rebellion Federation that controls Europe and the Principality of Shin centered in Asia. Three young robots stand up to put an end to this futile war.

Oh cool, we've got three young robots fighting to save the world..... wait, what? Three young robots? Young robots o___o'. The heck is that supposed to mean? How are robots moving without humanity? If humanity has been wiped out, why are there magical witches in the screen caps? Why am I asking so many questions?

Anyways, it's good they are trying out new things and good luck to the anime, even though I probably won't watch it..... might give it a try though.

Well, it's amazing that MMD can be used to animate anime :x
And it feels more like a funny talkshow than an actual anime, based on the interactions

That Touhou video up there is great, but it's a year old. Hopefully, someone here has actually watched the newest from the mecha genre of MMDs on nicovideo. (Nicovideo apparently has English features now on the .jp website, so you can all at least get the jist of it on an economy account. Unfortunately, premium is unavailable, so you'll have to aim for the right time of day to get HD quality.) Those of you who aren't up for finding out what you're missing out on, you will probably get your youtube versions of MMDCup10 around February 20th or so.

MMDCup10 Exhibition Preview: MMD Adaptation of Armored Core

I can assure you more than half of those who have never heard of MMD would think this is the actual game. The full version is to be released on February 15th.

BeammanP's OP is already worth looking forward to.

Something extra, for those who were fond of Smash Bros. Melee

Smash Bros. TH

15sec CM of the anime in question, though it's hard to tell whether it's comedy or not.

that was good and all but why does it have to be 15 mins only. When it comes to anime and especially robot anime i like to enjoy them.

I am going to give it a try after seeing this MMD video:

MMD Anime? Put Lat or Tda Miku and i will watch it with pop-corn in the hand. Too bad it's not about Miku.

On the other hand. i wonder what they will use. I saw some MMD PV's using MMDCup9 with some other softwares. They looks great. Wakamura and Thanks also have some great MMD PV's.

Skipped as in passed over it without watching it. Never said the TV series came first. Of course the OVA did.

Why on earth would you want another Vocaloid anime? Just look at how BRS turned out.

BRS is not a Vocaloid anime.
Plus even if it was, I thought it was a fun watch and wouldn't be against more of it.

BRS OVA is one of my favorite things ever. Skipped the TV series for reasons you can probably guess though.

The OVA came first though. So you actually didn't "skip" the TV series.

An anime about dancing robots by the total loonys that made gdgd fairies?

gdgd Fairies had some kind of composition? or scenario?!
than what they were taking while writing it o.O

and this one... we will see. Doesn't look special but maybe interactions between VA will give it some nice push.

Jan 11, 2013 3:14 AM by Xushu

Sounds ridiculous.

Jesus, MMD's function is to make naked models dance to a Touhou song then upload it to Niconico. I am disappoint.

I know using MMD just for fun's sake, but for an anime...?
