ROFL, I was waiting for this to come.
I think it's a bit soon to decide on an anime adaptation though.

It ain't a bad mecha, I dropped it @ 9 chapters though.

While I happy this manga is being animated I'm going to be a little skeptical for right now. Its great thats its going to be a movie (hopefully) at this point since it will make it a lot better than a tv series.

If it does become a tv series I can already see it going down the drain :(

The manga is pretty badass, the mechs remmind me of muv-luv and the seiyuu cast has two of my favorite seiyuus.

I don't see anything bad on this, so yeah, looking forward to it a lot.

Probably going to have separate entries for all 6 movies like how KnK had for its 7 movies.

So, is this now a single 50-minute movie? I'm confused.

seiyu cast

Lygatto Arrow: Souichiro Hoshi (KIRA YAMATO)
Shigwen: Chiwa Saito (louise)
Zess: Hiroshi Kamiya (tieria)
Hozul: Yuuichi Nakamura (graham bushido).


Aside from that..

Doesn't the mecha look a lot like the new Unicorn Gundam?


The only similarity I notice with Unicorrn Gundam & Main Character Mecha are both of them have horns (albeit the horn look like broken).

Lygatto Arrow: Souichiro Hoshi (KIRA YAMATO)
Shigwen: Chiwa Saito (louise)
Zess: Hiroshi Kamiya (tieria)
Hozul: Yuuichi Nakamura (graham bushido)

those 4 seiyu mention have mecha experience (aka gundam series) & yet have soch "kira yamato" hoshi as main guy really i guess that despite 3 of 00 seiyu in it the main guy have the voice of kira yamato aka main GS.

I actually quite like the manga. I'm not really a mecha person, but I'm such a sap for romance in any shonen and seinen. I'm looking forward to that.

I just hope scantalations for the manga come faster.

First I tought this would absolutely suck, until I read it again and watched the ^ clip above.

Seriously, like Break Blade but if the chars were designed by Fafner's/Gseed's CD, Hirai Hisashi, I don't know if could bear to watch it.

Hell yeah...mecha anime to the rescue!
I sick of lots of moe/ecchi anime nowdays...this is a great news for mecha fans ^_^
Also,if Production I.G was involved, count me in coz i like their work..
Plus, it's a 6 movies format (like Kara no Kyokai) so it will have superb animation quality!
Looking forward to this movie:)

I didn't really liked the manga, but I hope they'll make a better anime. The story not that bad, but maybe not my type in manga but wish it would be in animated.
