In the year L.C. 922, mankind faces an unprecedented crisis. Following the conclusion of a hundred-year war on the mythical world of Tetraheaven, the losing Majins sought a safe haven and invaded the human world Septpia. The government is forced is fight by employing Logicalists belonging to ALCA, a special police that protects the streets from foreigners of another world. Logicalists are given a special power that allows them to enter a trance with Goddesses from the other world.

One day, Yoshichika Tsurugi, a civilian who is lacking "Logic" and lives peacefully with his family, meets the beautiful goddess Athena while helping people escape from a Majin attack.

Seems like Bushiroad realized that shallow waifu pandering is the way to go if they want anything to sell.
This doesn't look particularly interesting, and that CG is just...eugh. I don't know what's happened to Dogakobo but lately they've been very mediocre.

I have a bad feeling about this one.

Same here. Not just feeling I'm already imagining how bad would it be.
7 Heroines/Female MCs and only 1 Hero/Male MC?
And worst of all Ono Kensho would be voicing it? Just how bad would it be?

The description says it's a joint venture between Bandai Visual, Lantis and Bushiroad and people are surprised it's a card game? Looks like they're unsurprisingly casting a lot of the virtual idols again. I see at 2 of Muse in the cast and one doing the theme song, but then again those two members also belong to Milky Holmes which is a Bushiroad title so no surprise they'd be here if the production committee could get them.

Anyway MAL is such a great judge of what is good and what isn't (all the same usual shitposters commenting here as per usual) they've clearly got this all figured out so obviously no point commenting or tuning in really when it's made the call. The parties should have brought a hook with them like surprise Gen Urobuchi script writing or Kalafina intro or something to trick people into watching an anime original card game commercial. I mean I saw Nitroplus name in the list of participating companies in the trailer.

Interesting. Decent casting but don't know yet about the rest. Another trading card game... Hope it's like WIXOSS

Whoa that came outta nowhere...?

Good to see Dogakobo on the works again. Storyline seems pretty ambitious if anything else. May/May not watch this depending on how it turns out when it starts airing.

Has the potential of being a raging dumpster fire.

Can't get excited over another dumb harem.

Judging from the cover it might as well be a LN adaption. They don't make 'original' anime like they used to :>.

Creative minds have dwindled over the years.

Looks interesting.... literally. Not reading anymore because I wanna go in blind.

Nov 17, 2015 5:44 AM by yhunata

Doga Kobo noooooo, I want you to make gooood animeee and not this sheeeet

Nov 17, 2015 5:14 AM by Red_Tuesday

Full Metal Panic!, Last Exile director and Space Battleship Yamato 2199 mecha designer sounds great to me. Also the School Live! original story creator is involved in the making of the setting with that excellent cast of female VAs has me very excited for this. More original anime is always welcome, going by the synopsis on ANN it has quite a bit of potential for a cool sci-fi/fantasy action series. Angels vs Humans and Goddesses plus seems like we'll be getting mecha and monsters.

Kensho Ono…

Playing a male character surrounded by females?


Nov 17, 2015 4:52 AM by Fumito
