Studio Bones is expected to announce an original anime, Concrete Revolutio: Choujin Gensou, for broadcast in October 2015. The official anime website has been registered but requires authentication to access. A key visual has been displayed at Daisuki's booth at Anime Expo 2015.

Apotheosis, a superhuman phenomenon in Tokyo. The reason of their birth is unknown. Some of them were modified by evil organizations; some came from outer space. Some came from a magical world, while others are monsters from ancient times. Some are robots made by scientists, OOPart (out-of-place artifact) robots. However, the Japanese government cannot afford to turn a blind eye to the prevalence of these superhumans.

Welp I can safely say mecha was the last thing i expected from this, this sounds like a fun as hell ride if they do it properly, bones has been going strong this year after th weak years prior so lets hope this keeps up the good work.

just cause for some reason the op post doesnt have the PV working at this moment

Hope it's good, I won a poster of it at Daisuki's booth at Anime Expo. Wanted Classroom Crisis but they weren't giving those out.

You had me at 'BONES'. PTW'd.

More original works is always welcome for me. Keep em coming!

OOparts... now where did I hear that word?

Oh right, Yugioh Zexal.

Sounds interesting, I have too much faith in Bones so I'll probably watch it even if it's shit.

I hope this one doesn't turn out to be garbage like Captain Earth.

That staff list is promising, though nothing really comes across as truly exceptional. Anyway, will give it a go, seems colourful enough.

Original anime? Sure, I'll give it a go. Not really fond of any of the diretors works tbh, but there could be a first time for everything.

Bones was the best Studio a few years ago... It's amazing how a company can fall from grace so smoothly. Bones needs something that is already good and they need to follow it faithfully

captain earth was a disaster so i think i'll pass with this show

They'll be releasing a PV and key visual at the Anime Expo 2015 this weekend at the Daisuki booth who will be streaming this. Glad we'll be getting a PV already, hopefully it's good. Also here's a clearer image of the key visual shown at the Daisuki booth:

Could be good - the last few years have been pretty great with regard to the original anime. Story does sound a little like Kekkai Sensen, with some mahou shoujo thrown in for fun. Kekkai Sensen Madoka Magica?

Jul 2, 2015 8:47 AM by FukuSencho

:D I will definitely be watching this!

Sounds like it might be good. Kaito Ishikawa will also be in it and it has the same director and script writer as my all time favourite anime Fullmetal Alchemist.

I'll have to make sure I don't expect too much though. I'm looking forward to seeing a PV soon.

Original anime by bones huh
Anyway the synopsis sounds good for me, i'm in then

Jul 2, 2015 6:51 AM by ccdewa

I like the staff involved. This is going to be awesome action wise that's for sure. Also excited to see that it'll be 2-cour. Just hope it turns out well and we get a PV soon.

Jul 2, 2015 12:13 AM by Dylan21

Sounds like fun.

Keeping hopeful but not optimistic because Bones original lol.

Yeah, my hype for DTB pretty much died down these last few months so I'm not surprised the original anime isn't that. I'll wait patiently for 2 more years when the franchise has its 10th anniversary. Then, at long last, the glorious BK201 will rise again and that clusterfuck season 2 ending will be redeemed.

That reminds me of Marvel Civil War, hopefully it won't remind me of its terrible writing.
Oh god why would you remind me of that travesty, that no joke was one of the leading reasons i stopped reading american comics, cant wait for that trainwreck to be made into a feature length film
Plot twist, this is a tie in to the film.
