Kidnapping, missiles, a high speed chase, explosions, beautiful girls, and that just the PV! This looks very promising.

PV is up, and the seiyuu cast is announced:

So the three girls are voiced by Hidaka Rina, Ookubo Rumi and Shindou Kei? This could become a breakout role for Shindou Kei if the eldest sister gets the biggest role and the anime succeeds. She has been in the industry for quite some time but has only voiced in minor roles I believe. That said I have a feeling that the youngest sister (voiced by Hidaka) will be in the leading role...

This is either going to be great, or a flop like El Cazador de la Bruja.

Here's a detailed summary on ANN:

The official website updated with a new story summary, describing the show as a "battle action adventure." The story takes place in the year 2061 AD, where global warming is a thing of the past and the early days of a glacial era now cover the entire world. Three descendents of Galileo living in Tuscany, Italy—Hozuki Ferrari, Hazuki Ferrari, and Kazuki Ferrari—are suddenly attacked by a mysterious organization and ultimately end up on international wanted lists. The organization's purpose is something called "Galileo Tesoro." With no clue what is going on, the three sisters must join forces to overcome the crisis, but their personalities are too different, making this no easy task.

Whoa I wasn't expecting action from this and I love me some adventure, nice.

Looks like a misc of originality and genericness. Count me in.

New key visual on the official website

And there is more story detail: The time is 2061 and mini ice age has come. The girls are living in Tuscany and got targeted by a mysterious organisation called "Galileo Tesoro" which resulted in international arrest warrants issued against them.
Now somewhat uninterested.

This, Samurai Flamenco, and Rising are going to be the season allstars, I think, possibly competing with Kill la Kill. Really looking forward to it.

This anime looks like its going to be a visual feast along with many others this fall.

It seems i'm going to lean more toward other noitaminA show for the upcoming fall (Flamenco) than this one. The premise doesn't really do much for me, and i'm always iffy with shows featuring mature women as lead characters

I love the new key visual. The characters, the background art and the composition of the picture all looks gorgeous. My interest is definitely heightened by it.

The story sounds good and we may have some fun and decently intelligent characters as well.

Picked up. The story sounds intriguing. 8D

Artstyle looks cool I guess. Can't really tell what it's about from the story synopsis.

Far more interested in his project after this one. This doesn't seem like the directors style, I guess it is never bad to try new things though.


Because they (probably) won't get raped during this?

On the contrary, the director is used to female leading roles. I'm really curious if he can handle something this tame. Hopefully it has a bigger budget than Mezzo DSA did. As much as I enjoyed the OVA, the animation in DSA is much shoddier.

The synopsis is intriguing though. Italian influence really catches my eye.

Time to go wiki Galileo Galilei since I have no idea who he is.

Yup, it's the founder of this band... They're great, really!

Are you kidding me?
Seriously ?_?

I don't know if you are being sarcastic or serious?!

The synopsis is interesting.
