I'll wait for a PV, but that key visual is fucking sweet. I love those character designs.

So far I'm still drawing a total blank if not outright bad impression on this one. For all the advertising for it to date so far it's just amounted to the usual Aniplex fluff hype marketing that does little for me. Like sure okay those are some names yet again like Okada, Trigger, Imaishi and what not and Boom Boom Satellites are an alright band, but remind me why I'm supposed to want to actually watch this show again? Like all these incidental bells and whistles but we're still where we were three months ago with the synopsis and the cast and premise just sounding dreadful and like everything that annoys me about modern anime trying to just be edgy and "cool" rather than structured and having a sense of purpose. Just sounds like a whole bunch of disconnected ideas meant to appeal to angsty teenagers that's become extra popular in the post-Urobuchi landscape of anime right now and unlike Kill la Kill that means it's unfortunately probably not for me as a result.

Of course if that's not what it is than the advertising for it has done a terrible job of showing me otherwise since it basically looks like asshole characters and grimderp world the anime that would embarrass even the likes of Gen Urobuchi, Go Nagai or Shou Aikawa.

Synopsis sounds like the tv series Sens8...

Anyways it's sci-fi and the characters design looks okay so I'm putting this on my PTW.

Mari Okada, eh
I can't make a guess on what we will see from her honestly.

Boom Boom Satellites' music is kind of samey but works as dope opening. Could see it being a good fit.

I'm not listened many songs of BBS, so my arguments may be invalid. If you mean that most of their songs is like as Bounen no Xamdou and Ninja Slayer openings, they also have a slower compositions. Like these:

Just repeat myself - I'm not listened many of their songs (it's not like i don't like them - i maybe listened, but not many times, so it kinda hard to remember some of them).

Trigger is one of those up and coming studios that really have a uniqueness to them. I cant wait for this to air. Probably will be in my top 5 of spring.

Yeah, I think Spring 2016 could be one of the best season in anime, especially in action genre.

Looking forward to this anime too.

Could be a big thing for Trigger this year.

I have never liked the animes of Mari Okada

Trigger have yet to produce a good full length series as KLK and Inou Battle were only okay to mediocre.
At least the cover image gives off a stylish vibe.

And just like that, we have another Spring title...

Well at least we won't have to wait too long for this.
