Blast From The Past: New Megazone 23 Anime To Be Crowdfunded Soon

Mecha anime shows are awesome but it's a shame that so few are released nowadays. Fortunately, AIC is bringing back one of their classics for older and newer fans. Is a reboot of Megazone 23 exciting enough to secure a successful crowdfunding campaign?

His style is great, you can tell if he's done the character designs in an instant

Probably the best character designer and easily one of my favorites, there's just something about his facial templates for his characters that I really love. And all the girls he draws are extremely attractive, both in an aesthetic and a sexual manner. Need to see more of his work beyond Monogatari though.

WTF what r u doin' with hanekawa's boobs in Kizu 3 ??
its oversized dude ...

Zaregoto...

A friend and I were discussing that Shaft would inevitably pick up the series, but I still think they should've went with Take's original character designs. Possibly could've hired some one like Tsuyoshi Kawada to mimic his style; like his work on Katanagatari.

It would've been a treat seeing that mesh with Shinbou/Shaft's style.

At least it's an OVA adaptation, hoping for a 40-50 minute duration per episode.

Really like the character designs that he has done.
