Yes because I'm working at the same time on Symphogear, Aquarion Evol and AKB0048! 2012 we'll be a great year for Satelight I think!
Pretty sure many will be looking forward to that.

We could discuss that in a more appropriate forum, but if you ask it here I'll answer your question. First, what do you dislike in the chara design of AKB0048? The way people appreciate or not character design is a very subjective matter. Personnaly I don't dislike it. I think characters are cute. But I think we need to wait to see them on the screen because the work of animation directors will probably make them look a little bit different.
Besides, Ebata san who already designed characters of Macross frontier is REALLY talented. Shery and Ranka are ones of the most popular female characters in Japan and I think that she knows what she is doing. What do you think of Macross F characters?

Yeah sorry if I'm being harsh.
But I'm really do not expect its gonna have that kind of chara design, I'm expecting some realism on its design like in Macross F or at least Idolm@ster the animation than something that usually belong in magical girl/mahou shoujo title, especially because AKB48 is the real group, anyone would expect their anime design is kinda "real-ish".

But I guess its technical decision?
Because more simpler design gonna be easier for you guys animate in the concert and mix it in CG.

Anyway back to this title, I'm expecting some nice background for its semi-futuristic design.

*thinks that discussion for the akb0048 anime should be taken to an appropriate thread* I personally don't mind the character designs, looks lovely to me

That said, I hope we'll see a PV for Symphogear soon.

The series is really packed with a lot of action, some fan service and a few bloody scenes... A really anime fan orientated project. I hope you will like it!
Like always, I think I'll post some production visuals on the french catsuka forum about Satelight's works during the airing.
See you!
Now that sounds interesting. I'll look forward to the first episode
Why don't you post production visuals here as well, rather than in some odd french forum?

I think the chara designs are cute, but the girls all look like they're elementary school girls at best, clearly too loli for me (not too fond of loli). You should've made them middle school girls or high school girls instead.

I don't really mind the designs but I do find it lacking compared to Ebata's Sheryl as well as the AKB49 manga (hope this gets an anime in the future). But yeah I'll wait until I see it motion until I really judge it.

I'm less concerned about AKB0048's character designs and more concerned about why an anime and 4 different manga of AKB48 even exist...

One answer: cash machine! When something works in Japan they really try to expand the brand as far as they can.

Fertygo> I understand what you mean now. This is true that the characters looks younger and less real than the ones in macross F. I wasn't there when the directors discussed that with Ebata san so I don't know the point. Maybe they wanted to to something different this time, because this production has already a lot in common with macross (staff, SF universe, songs...).

I know that the musical naming has more to do with it than anything, but two of the four listed characters are named "Kanade" and "Hibiki".

pixiv, I trust you know what to do with this.

AKB49 is seriously good and needs an anime adaption one day.

That sorta kills the joke. A little leeway is allowed when puns are involved.

Didn't realize the webpage has updated with a new front image:



Is that supposed to be a spear?

Site also has a "Movie" section now, though no content as of yet. Looks like we'll get a PV soon.

Trying to decide if that is the biggest person wheeled spear I have seen in anime. Honestly I can't think of a bigger one off hand. I wonder how big is this "noise" anyway?

I'm actually surprised that there isn't a PV yet since the site is still listing 6 January for the start.

Great outfits there
Also - yes, the spear is kind of big. I'm sure it'll make a big badaboom when it hits that "noise"

I am still trying to figure how someone would cosplay that. I know someone will figure it out.

I wonder if that spear will be used for direct attack or will it be use to shoot energy waves/beams?
