A new original anime project by Satou Junichi (Aria, Princess Tutu, Tamayura, Sergeant Keroro) was recently confirmed. The catchphrase in the announcement is "Zenryoku Gu Shoujo! Action!" (Full Force Idiotic Girl! Action!), but it is not known if this will become the title of the anime. According to the official website of the project, more information will be disclosed a week later on August 7th.

Back then, I heard there was supposed to be released a manga sequel to Kaleido Star but it was canceled. Perhaps it is this? Either way, for me, Kaleido Star is a complete story, I would not like anything more.

And the PV reminded me of Kill la Kill in a way...

It sounds interesting because Satou Junichi is involved but there's too little information about it at the moment.

Anyway, fans in Japan speculate that this is related to an old series Satou directed 10 years ago:

Kaleido Star? O god I hope so. That was such an AWESOME show!

Princess Tutu is a show I plan to watch and Tamayura is a show I'm enjoying right now so I am certain that I will look forward on this.

I don't like the title but i'll keep an open mind cause i can't tell from that 16 s video.

Aria and Tutu is enough of a pedigree to at least make me interested.

I feel like this will be half slapstick comedy half action.
The PV didn't really pump me up but ill give it a go when it comes out!

Director of Tamayura? I'm in even if it is completely different.

Jul 31, 2013 2:40 PM by Kabuto90

That's an interesting catch phrase... I'll check it out since it's the director of Tamayura :3

When the tagline itself promises an idiotic girl, she must be the dumbest dumb to ever dumb.

Satou Junichi has showed his skills in directing, so I'm trusting that he can pull something off.

If it is related to another anime, can it still be called "original"?

I need to watch Kaleido Star if those rumours are true (meh, I will watch it even if they are not). I'm excited for this.

Hmmm.....If that is the case, should I watch Kaleido Star first as it has seem to be said that this show a resemblance to the animated PV here?
