Doesn't sound too bad, staff's good. Not too sure about Production IMS, though. Anyway, I'll give it a try so PTW'd.

Will be waiting on more news for this.

Oh well, the staff could be better but it also could be a lot worse. Three episode rule for this one.

Staff is overall pretty good!
Having Nakagawa Kotarou there may make it seem like another Code Geass...or probably the likes of it. I loved the character designs for Soma, so having Shun there is a big plus indeed.

That's a fucking mouthful.


Considering that the official tag line on the webpage is "bye-bye common sense" I'd certainly expect the show to make fun of that ridiculously long name at least a couple of times.

A. We don't know that, but she does seem to be a holographic projection or AI.

B. Even if she's an idol, that's not much of a reason to complain unless you hate all of them.

Giant robots guarantee that ill be watching this one. Hoping its sunrise, try have a good track record with mecha anime

Oct 8, 2015 3:35 PM by germancake

The character designs are what has convinced me to watch this show. Tosh top tier.

Oct 8, 2015 11:31 AM by KaoruMatsuoka

Will keep an eye.

Seems like a sunrise show, the number of CG staff somewhat suggests that. That script guy is suspect as shit though.

I'll guess it's either JC staff or Sunrise doing it.. A-1 is doubtful but not fully ruled out. Maybe this is what will replace sunrise's Tiger and Bunny or Sacred 7.

Is this another original mecha anime? I'm getting bored with those. I already have Gundam for this season, and I'll stick with that one.

Oct 7, 2015 1:02 PM by phoenixalia

Exoskeletons eh? Am I going to see theses characters exo jumping all day? I hope to god the exoskeletons are realistic..

You had me with Shun Saeki.

Waiting for the studio but would probably watch.
