Official website updated with studio and staff information, as well as other stuff like story introduction, character design and novel & manga to go with the show.

And the studio turns out to be AIC.

It is about a group of little girls picked from 22 tribes who use the Good Tarot named "Elemental Tarot" to fight the evil side using the "Diabolical Tarot"

A little too loli for me, but looks interesting enough; plus, it has the bonus of being original.

You mean that CCS and Sailor Moon were the ones that evolved and expanded the mahou shoujo genre as well as the fanbase and that they lead an inspiration to future mahou shoujo projects from generation to generation world, depicting them in a different ranges.

I don't know what point you're trying to make or what you're attempting to "correct".

I was trying to understand what you were saying, but i got myself confused at the same time. Sorry about that.

I wish they'd bring guys back to the magical girl genre as a, preferably subtle, romantic interest ...like the good ol' days with Sailor Moon and Cardcaptor Sakura
as much as it hurts me to say this, things like that don't sell anymore. Unless you watch anime targeted at little girls like Jewelpet...

Putting aside my total lack of desire to see guys in a show like this pretty much ever, I think it's mixing up target audiences to compare CCS or Sailor Moon to something like this or Madoka or Nanoha or various other mahou shoujo anime explicitly targeting male late night anime otaku that have come around in recent years.

Certainly Sailor Moon and CCS developed a strong adult male fanbase, but that wasn't really their goal. There are still plenty of mahou shoujo anime aimed at young girls, the traditional target audience, though outside of Precure I can't say I've watched any. I would agree there likely hasn't been anything comparable to CCS recently though. However I'd argue that the "appeals outside of young girl target audience" aspects of CCS are precisely what evolved into shows like Nanoha and Madoka.

You mean that CCS and Sailor Moon were the ones that evolved and expanded the mahou shoujo genre as well as the fanbase and that they lead an inspiration to future mahou shoujo projects from generation to generation world, depicting them in a different ranges.

shame though. I could really use another anime like Cardcaptor Sakura right now.

Looks interesting enough. Do we have any studio's name?
http://www.studioanima.co.jp/
Where did you find that this studio is linked to the production of this anime? I am curious.

http://www.studioanima.co.jp/works/original/2012/02/-blood-of-fortune-2.html
Your link shows this title: 幻影のメサイア BLOOD of FORTUNE
This anime's name is 幻影ヲ駆ケル太陽
Only the first two kanji are the same.... Hmm...
That said, the link of Blood of Fortune in the Studio Anima site http://www.geneino.com/ indeed shows character silhouette that look similar to what can be seen in the geneitaiyo site http://www.geneitaiyo.com/
I guess we are onto something.
