Aside from the nice animation, nothing else really impressed me. The mecha design is mediocre to bad. I like the character designs though. Not expecting anything from the story. I'll watch it because it's BONES.

Official site is up now. The music in the show is credited to Metalchicks and Music Heroes.... errr... okay...

Opening theme is "Roulette" by TETSUYA, and ending theme is "Calling" by Flow.

Looks exactly like I was expecting. Totally unpretentious, fun and gorgeous looking.

The show looks good. noticed a Flash Thompson Clone (from Spider-Man comics) in there, Stan must have had some input with that. Overall it looks pretty good.

My thoughts exactly... . And thanks for all the updates on this show, duckroll.

The site also has the voice actors for the characters, the ANN page has already been updated:

Mikako Komatsu as Joey. I'm guessing this is her (edit: yeah, this is definitely her, there's a news about Heroman on the site) . She's already been on live action shows, but it'll be her first role as a seiyuu apparently. You can hear her voice here.

Akio Suyama as Nick
Cho as Denton
Makoto Yasumura as Will
Mayu Obata as Rina
Naomi Shindoh as Vera
Ryohei Kimura as Sai
Unshou Ishizuka as Gogol

Not a bad cast line-up. I hate saying this twice on the same page, though it just feels very BONES.

Words cannot express how full of win that PV is. I was so so close to writing this off as garbage and that now is one of my most wanted shows. It makes me think of a mainstream FLCL. That last few images of the Earth being taken over looked somewhat dark so I'm praying so hard that the plot is pretty good. Stan Lee don't fail me now. The song and character designs were awesome too.

Ya, the PV is great. I just hope it's going to be very different from the manga.

Part of me thinks this will actually be suited for western kids around 6-10 years of age.

but then again, I can't tell the future, so I don't know (nice character designs though).

For me, except for the looks/colors of the main robot/thing (which can be explained by maybe its story and that Stan Lee is working with BONES on this) I find it outstanding.

(I never liked things like superhero or robot with too much "recognition" to either their origine or the origine of the show. So, yeah, I never liked superhero's design like Captain America or Capitain Canada (for those who know about him) or any Captain *add some country's name here* and the Gundam from the Lunar serie.)

But the animation will surely make me forget about it. (Since I do love the stories of those I mentioned... but simply hate their design.)


Ha... And I don't like Psy's hair at all... Too much stuffed. (For those who saw the preview, it's the one with a MEGA pack of brown hair on his head...)
I was fan of that as a kid, but I don't like anymore the "anti-gravity hair" design. (Even in my own manga project, I simply refuse to use such concepts without a good reason like a punk with spikes is ok... but not some semi-afro mixed with some casual hair style... that's what I got on my head on the morning and do a hell of a job to remove so why would a character have that 100% of the time? I'm too logical for that kind of hair design. +_+")

You sum up my thoughts after watching PV. I was never worried about the production values since it's BONES, but Stan Lee could drag the show down imo. I'll definitely watch the first few episodes at least to see how I feel about it overall.

Honestly, I think yous guys are readin too much into the Stan Lee biz. Aside from some superficial character/concept conception way in the beginning, any relationship is superficial. THat's normally how it is with these kind of shows. The bulk of the story will be largely by the Japanese.

either way, I think anyone expecting this NOT to skew very young demographically is setting themselves up for disappointment.
