It was revealed through a live stream conference that a brand new Gundam series titled Mobile Suit Gundam: Tekketsu no Orphans (Mobile Suit Gundam: Iron-blooded Orphans) will premiere on October 4, 2015. The series will be replacing Arslan Senki (TV), which is currently airing on Sunday afternoon.

The conference also revealed the main staff of the series as well as character designs:


Synopsis
300 years after the end of a great war between Earth and Mars called Yakusaisen (Calamity War), the Earth, losing the ruling authority during the war, structured a new world with a ruling system. A new war on Mars is starting while the Earth is in temporary peace.

The main character Mikazuki Augus, from Chryse Guard Security (CGS), was on a mission to protect Cuderia Aina Bernstein, who wants Chryse, Mars' city, to be independent from Earth's ruling. However, a group named Gjallarhorn started a rebellion, attacked CGS and Cuderia, and the adults in CGS decided to use the boys in the team as decoy to evacuate. Orga Itsuka, the leader of the boys, decided to use that as a chance to launch a coup d'état because the adults have been treating them badly for a long time. Mikazuki, with Orga's request to defeat Gjallargorn, uses Gundam Barbatos, a major mobile suit that CGS used during Yakusaisen to fight.

Ok after cooling off way more, im gonna be less pessimistic about this even with mari okada on deck, in the end its the director that really makes the series what it is and im legitimately curious as to how this one does

GOD I LOVE GUNDAM. I can't wait to watch this. From the trailer it looks a lot like Gundam Unicorn and Gundam 00, which are my faves from this franchise. Really looking forwart to this.

Okada was the least of M3's issues, and Aquarion just isn't a good series.


Seconded, I dont see what anyone was expecting from Aquarion Evol

well, Nagai as director isn't such a bad choice. he's got a lot of talent, but Okada is worrying me. hopefully Nagai restrains her habits for bad melodrama. really liking the ms designs though, the character designs not so much.


Yeah the staff has me iffy too again I hope they can pull it off. We'll wait and see. The only problem with the character designs really is that feel same-y to me. Like any other run of the mill mecha series. They don't put me off but at least G-Reco stood out among the many show that were out combined with the overall iffy mecha design.

You really should make a better excuse....

The premise looks really interesting, the designs looks like a fusion of 00 and AGE. Then again the only Gundam series i have watched are 00, SEED, Wings,Unicorn and liked 00 the most. It seem we might get a mature themed Gundam series after 00.

What worries me is that Nagai and Okada don't have much experience with mecha anime along with the bad reputation of Okada due to EVOL(shit series anyway). As long as the romance is done right and feels realistic there is no problem. But Gundam was never about romance but the clashing of ideals,politics and mainly war so lets see what they can deliver. Also glad that hand drawn mechs are back as the cg in aldnoah zero and recent other mecha anime was really terrible. Hope that it won't be a disappointment like A.Z and G-Reck ;)

The fuck? She wrote the script which was the biggest issue with the show.

If AnoHana was a poor man's Cross Game, will this be a poor man's Touch or H2

I was wondering how long it'd take for the O/NDF to show up.

Screwing up one attempt at a genre isnt what most people would call a track record.


3 attempts. She screwed up Aquarion Evol and M3. Plus that DT Eightron although it's a long time ago. Also she messed up Fractale so her record for Sci-Fi is pretty dreadful.

Also let's not forget Nagai made that crap known as iDOLM@STER Xenoglossia.


The main reason people even hate on Xenoglossia is because it's not a straight port of the game. The actual technicals of the show in terms of direction and production values are fine, it's the concept people just freak over to this day though nobody is ever specific about that which is kind of annoying. When people are just absolutely raging over the show to other people I hope they consider clips like this, or this and ask themselves if they really think the director did an abominable job and the show is just a complete low budget poorly directed example of mecha animation. Really wish i could find an actual fight scene, but this show convinces me the guy can do action just fine.

Anyway I wish people would just stop ranting about the "common knowledge" that Xenoglossia is a crap show on it's own merits rather than not the adaptation the idol show they were looking for.

edit: Ah here's more of a mix of action and non-action clips.

I just came to realize something this kid is probably the third youngest pilot in the Gundam series his probably 10 or 12 at most he looks nothing like a teen which means he lost his parents at the age of 3
I actually didnt take that into account, if im not mistaken uso should be the current youngest gundam protagonist and i think he was 13.

Looks good, I will see how it goes

PV looks great! Not too keen on the new Gundam though, still much better than the G-Reco. Also no CGI mechs!! YES!

But that's one weird staff for a Gundam..

Gundam design used to be awesome and unique, well, this design looks unique too but for me it is not gundam, just another mecha anime

To be fair, how much better could xenoglassia possibly be with that premise and franchise attached to it.
