Every few months, I watch Sword of the Stranger again on blu-ray, to remind myself of the glory of BONES.

^Me too. That and Cowboy Bebop the movie. They're both visually amazing and the animation is just wow. Love Cowboy Bebop the movie more though, since the story (but they had something to work from) and characters are better.

So still no scans yet?

I posted the only scan there is. It didn't get a two page spread from Newtype, only a small blurb with the key visual art.

Wow that's all there is? You'd expect at least a double spread on a big announcement like that. Especially when you look at the staff involved. I guess I'll wait till more news pops up.

We're lucky to even find out the staff involved at such an early stage.

For me, Bones make a very good job in Soul Eater. Funny and great action sequences. In The Alternative End it was creative and have good moments, like Death City walking and Fighting.

Go go Bones.

Newtype has confirmed that the series will air in October, on MBS/TBS stations. This could be running on the FMA:B timeslot that Sengoku Basara 2 is taking over this season, but that has not been confirmed yet.

I was expecting this to air at least in 2011, so good to hear it's only a few months away. Shouldn't be long now until we hear more information about the series, followed by a PV.

Loving those designs. Especially the blonde hair girl who looks to be the main heroine of the show. Our main character looks pretty typical, though with awesome hair like that i'll let it slide.

Additional staff listed for Star Driver:

Cybuddy Design: Shigeto Koyama
Concept Design: Shinji Aramaki
Art Design: Kazuo Nagai
Underground World Design: Tomoaki Okada
Industrial Design: Takayuki Yanase
VFX Director: Yasushi Muraki
Art Director: Takeshi Waki
Color Setting: Shihoko Nakayama
Director of Photography: Tsuyoshi Kanbayashi
Editng: Shigeru Nishiyama
Sound Director: Kazuhiro Wakabayashi

The story and worldview concepts sound a lot like Fafner. It's about students in a school on an island in the southern sea of Japan, set in the far future, robots, time of change for mankind, blahblah. Hope it doesn't suck. The mechs are called Cybuddies btw. At least, that's the closest logical English translation from the katakana...

Why characters family names are in katakana instead of kanji ?

Original character design artists, Misa Mizuya and Hiroka Mizuya... why the fuck is their art so similar to Takeshi Obata's?! It's no wonder the designs for the show look so Bakuman-ish, if someone told me their stuff was drawn by Obata, I would believe them without second thoughts:

The characters looking similar to Obata designs is not surprising. Misa Mizuya and Hiroka Mizuya are supposed to be twin sisters who do cover illustrations for the magazine Kikan S. The thing is though, all their artwork looks suspiciously similar to Obata artwork. They're either zero talent illustrators who just like ripping Obata off, or they're just a pen name Obata is using for whatever reason. I found all this out while researching them when Star Driver was first announced.

I'm not really surprised by the chara design either, since I was warned Misa and Hiroka Mizuya's art look insanely similar to Obata's. I wonder if it's one of his pen name, or if those twins are somehow related to him (former assistants, family or whatever). If they were just plain old copycats, there would probably be problems. Then again, maybe not, I have no idea how those things work, Obata's art has been ripped off so many times in so many mangas already.

Robot looks awesome, like an 18th century European fencer, but I don't like the character designs AT ALL. So generic and un-Bones like
