Photosynthesis? New genders? Uh...*scratches head* First thing that popped in my head is asexual plant reproduction XD
This is just confusing but the PV was definitely interesting.


Photosynthesis and new genders are reeeaaally minor points in the story. It's mostly just mecha vs alien fights and life in a space ship/colony.

For the curious(slight spoilers):

Photosynthesis is


New gender is


Not exactly correct. in the matters of importance.

I remember reading a chapter several years ago and being really bored with it. I'll keep it on my radar though.

Hopefully, the second PV means Winter 2014 and not indiscriminately later -_-

Spring 2014 it says.


Thanks!

Oh I haven't read the manga yet. I think this is interesting. I'll probably watch this.

After watching the second PV, I threw out any doubts I had about the use of CGI. It adapts the style and atmosphere wonderfully.

I'm reading the manga from Vertical, Inc. who is releasing nice quality volumes with well-written translations. Volume 6 comes out next month. I highly recommend their editions.

Wow that was a really nice PV. I can't say I'm a big fan of CGI but I really like the CGI in this. I'm quite excited for this; I might start reading the manga before this airs.

oh. my. gods.


This looks as glorious as I imagined it to be. Certainly won't be for everyone, but that's okay, as the good stuff rarely is for everyone.

LOVE the way shadows work in the art style - it manages to retain that "AC.Clarke clean aesthetic" that the manga had, despite being in color.

Also DAT OST.

I wonder if it will be easier to understand in anime.. Haha because I certainly have trouble sometimes, but it's still more easy to understand than some of his other works...
I'm really exited for what the art will look like, holy cow. Even if the gauna and stuff are CG the backgrounds should still be awesome though right? At least I hope so.

This looks as awesome as imagined. Great to see Nihei's works getting attention. Also DAT OST....

Sign me up...........the mecha designs got me more interested even though i never heard about this. Also the synopsis looks interesting.

Totally unrelated but i really wish Mahouka gets an anime adaptation. It's really such awesome LN.
