Director: Hiroyuki Imaishi
Series Composition/Script: Kazuki Nakashima
Character Design: Sushio
Animation Production: Trigger

It's a 2-cours battle action show set in an all girls high school. The main characters are Ryuuko Matoi and Satsuki Kiryuuin. Satsuki is the 18 year old studen council president in a school where strength rules over all, and her uniform grants her the power of conquest. Ryuuko is a 17 year old transfer student to the school. She carries with her half a piece of a giant scissors-sword as a weapon, and she is looking for the other half seeking revenge for something in her past. The rivalry between the two girls is what drives the series forward.

Originally the plan was to make a pure battle manga sort of series set in a highschool, with the main character beating rival after rival in combat. After Nakashima compled about 4 episodes worth of scripts, Imaishi probably got bored of it because he decided to trash everything. The series has apparently since been changed to focus on character drama instead. The rivalry between the two main characters will be a major driving force.

Potentially interesting.

kyouray 2013-05-08 02:56

It's happening! It looks great.
I'm glad Sushio is back as character designer :)
The screenwriter is also good news.

This reminds me a little of Medaka Box for some reason.

Daniel Lind 2013-05-08 03:18

So TTGL team reunion.
This is going to be great.

Synopsis looks amazing, but given it's set in all-girls school, I am doubting about whether the yuri undertones might fit the story or not (don't get me wrong, I like yuri undertones for the most part). On the other hand, the character designs are great, and I'll definitively watch it since Imaishi also participating in Inferno Cop, which I enjoyed and liked.

GreatTeacherKen 2013-05-08 03:46

Sounds very interesting. One thing I've always liked about Imaishi Hiroyuki's work is the fight scenes which are ridiculously awesome and well animated so I think this series will provide plenty of that. Nakashima Kazuki being involved is also a strong plus for me.

Ahh...the girls delinquent anime that I've always wanted. Bless you Trigger.

Cosmic Eagle 2013-05-08 05:45

this looks potentially filled with randomness enough to be great

Haiprbim 2013-05-08 06:19

I have a question over here. Is Ryuuko a boy or a girl?
Also, do you think that the center of the attention will be on Ryuuko or Satsuki?
Thanks in front!

Looking at the picture provided in the first post, the person in the dark on the right page looks very much like a bad guy and a boy with long hair, that's why I asked. :heh:
Thanks for sharing anyhow, I might check this out as well.

Both characters are girls. Ryuuko is the one on the left and Satsuki is the one on the right.

Kazu-kun 2013-05-08 09:39

This is what I was waiting for. No romcom bullshit or beta MCs. Just a pure unadulterated continuous stream of girls being awesome from start to finish. bring it on, Imaishi, my body is lady. :heh:

Kanon 2013-05-08 09:55

There is literally no way this won't be awesome.

Cosmic Eagle 2013-05-08 10:04

Wonder how bloodily brutal this will get

Ridwan 2013-05-08 10:50

Okay, subscribed.

Iron Maw 2013-05-08 11:16

Sounds like it's going to be pure fun.

I'm in.

I hope not. That franchise was pretty rambly in it's dialogue and not to mention irritating to me and the characters interactions were kind of nonsensical and not very funny/amusing if that was the goal. It just felt like more of the same from that IMO try hard author who to be honest I'm already kind of tired of.

I'm hoping for something more visceral, better directed, and with more to the point dialogue than that show. Something with developments and character interactions that doesn't seem like it's trying to hard to be witty and loldeep while thumbing it's nose at the audience so much as catchy, fun and memorable. So in short something like this teams predecessor Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann.

I'm glad that the director seems to have realized that an MC just defeating rival after rival would probably make for a boring show and decided to scrap that plotline for something a little more involved. Hope what they came up with works out.
