So it's getting a TV anime. I'm quite excited for this, the key visual looks great.

The original source is saying it is scheduled to air January 2014, I wonder if there is a better scan for it.
Interesting that ANN did not put this most important information (the schedule) in its article.

Kazuki Yone is involved with the art? Consider me interested.

If this becomes an anime, I'll watch it for sure just for Kazuki Yone. Her art is AMAZING.


Totally agree- her art got my attention on the website *__*

Don't tell me Nobunaga is a cyborg this time round...
As always it will be moe gender bender.


Uh, Kazuki Yone's doing the character designs, so I doubt it. Plus ANN's article shows visuals of it.

This seems interesting and I'm kinda a fan of Kazuki Yone's art too. :D
I'm just joking.

Mecha Sengoku Basara? Yes, please.
But Honda Tadakasu is mecha?

Even that idol show has a lot of mecha, right?

Yea, imagine that! I wonder if he got hit by a toy robot as a kid.

I wouldn't be surprised if he got hit by an actual robot. ;)

Only director I cares about. Kawamori-san is a genius. I'm down for this project.

You want Kawamori anime with no mecha in it? How bout you take one of the best 90s anime films and man's best non-Macross work: Spring and Chaos which is critically celebrated but obscure as fuck straight for tv special/film about life of Kenji Miyazawa.

Arjuna also has no mecha in it unless you *really* want to interprept kawamori's take on one hindu divine figure as mecha (it appears in anime whopping two times to boot). As for Kawamori shows Kawamori has created/written but not directed Kirumin counts as it is shoujo show about cute "animal detectives". Earth Defence Family is borderline case as it's more super sentai parody than mecha (though one episode features mecha unit for one scene)

As a rule Kawamori shows having mecha to one extent or another should go without saying because the man is first of all legendary mechanical designer whose CV is to largest degree filled with design work. He's creator in largest sense of term after that, director distant third.

In short Kawamori production without mechas is anomaly. Prima facie assumption should be that there will be mecahs.

What's next? "The Moron"? Seems like the amount original title names has run out.


tbh I wouldn't be surprised if The Fool is used iin sense of jester

Yea, he is good at designing robots. That's why I thought he got hit by one as a kid xD. But after being burned by Aquarion Evol, I'm not eager to jump at anything he creates anytime soon,


Watching AKB0048 should work as antedote for that. It's genuinely very good and fun show and way better than Evol trainwreck was.
