Good to know that sexism against women is alive and well here on MAL :)

If they were guys everyone would be creaming themselves for this show.

Wouldn't be a Sunrise mecha anime announcement without a whole lot of shitposting You'd think maybe once people might just look beyond stupid petty trivial nonsense just once and let a mecha show actually air some episodes before summarily burying or lifting it to the high heavens.

Its Sunrise, so it must be good...

Not everything they make is good. Look at Code Gayass.

I'm actually sold to the synopsis and that preview at this moment. For me though, the characters design are all fine. Mecha, well i don't really know much about it but it looks okay. Also the first thing pops up in my mind when i saw those cast is that i'm not really a fan of Tamura Yukari's voice but i do love Mizuki Nana's and Miyano Mamoru's voice (especially Miyano's since he is on the role this season).

So i think i'm gonna give it a try, say the first 3-5 episodes. If it turns out that i can't stand the storyline or the irritation from any of those voice acting or it gets sooo confuse/complicated where i need to keep checking some professional's review (or spoilers)...i'm gonna drop it. Honestly!^^

looks like it will be at least entertaining. I think I'll give it a go when it airs.

So, I guess it's going to be like Mai-Hime/Otome.

this one is practically guaranteed to be shit.

Hey, hey now. We don't call those kinds of anime shit around these parts. We describe them as "special" instead.

Ehh, but I like the cast =3=

After seing the character designs - a big nope.
Yeah I agree, this is the last season where I will be following most series that come out. I am watching too much shows like this.

I've seen several of Sunrise mecha series Gundam Seed, Code Geass, Valvrave, and Buddy Complex, and I can honestly say that Valvrave is one of my top 10 anime. The others were okay to varying degrees.

I've wanted a series that focused on a female lead that was mecha, and didn't rely to heavily on fanservice. While this series does certain succeed on the first part, I'm not too sure on the second. I hope the fanservice is rather minimal, but I don't expect it to be.

However, female pilots, fantasy, and dragons with Yui Ogura voicing one of the cast? I'm definitely in. I just hope its on the same level as Valvrave.

did you even see the character designs

HOLY SHIT SUNRISE,i've been getting back into mechs recently

>>>>>>>>ALL FEMALE CAST<<<<<<<<<<

Actually, that would probably make it even more cringe worthy.

Haha, same here. Guys dressed like that in a mecha series, how would I be able to take a show like that seriously? That would be like Bakumatsu Rock. xD But that's just my opinion.

i got mixed feeling about this.

I love Nana Mizuki as a VA, a singer, and the successor to Masami Okui's "I do what I want on my albums" schtick, but....ugh. I'd love an anime series with females in it, but...not like this.

Aug 4, 2014 12:52 AM by SageShinigami

Eh, I hate mecha (Plus, this looks like it's gonna be ecchi), so I'll pass.
