I can understand Shinobu, but why is Madoka there? Just because she makes that "maru" sign?

Seinen and shounen are technically not "genres" but simply classifications for magazines. Those terms were not meant for anime. Anyway, not all mecha series have battles in each episode, but it's not a problem because build up is good too.

I also want LUNAR AND MARS!!! I liked them just as much as I did Solar Aquarion.
Mars is now Gepalt, though it looks more like Omega. The third form of Evol as seen in the preview looks like Mars and Lunar combined. It does have the sword of Mars.

I prefer the original one over Aquarion Evol
While I like the original more, the Evol has been growing on me... it does look like it came out of "Pimp my ride", but it has its charm.

And while I don't like the fact pieces detach during transformation, I like that the torso joins directly with the legs in all transformations (or at least so it seems). It's like it could turn into a robot with just two vectors.

I stumbled upon some bits of information from interviews with director Yamamoto Yuusuke and Amata's seiyuu Kaji Yuuki in some magazine (FREECELL):

Spoiler for Vague spoilers for the few upcoming episodes:

Man, that's Okada for you wwwww

Ah well, it'd be ideal but I won't enjoy the show any less if it doesn't actually occur. I strongly agree with what Ypocaramel said; I'm sure the protagonists will manage to overcome the barriers placed in front of them by refining the bonds they have with each other. This goes double for the 'main couple'; whoever the hell they turn out to be.

Perhaps. I'm just worried that we won't get a satisfying ending, and the producers will decide to remedy this by creating another sequel.

Edit:

Heh, I see people were spot on in thinking Mikono may be somewhat evil and that Zess will fall for Amata. I wonder what that shocking revelation will be, and if it is in anyway related to the wedding scene with Kagura and Mikono?

Damn you Mari Okada.

Why must you tease us with brilliance and then give us nothing but weird crap? I'll never understand what goes on in your mind...

Welp I'm just starting this show now against all my better judgement since it just looks so not like the type of mecha story I enjoy. Probably safe to say I'll be skipping those episodes with no regrets. Why every show feels it needs to have episodes that focus strictly on bland school life stuff I don't know....like was the balance it was striking in the first few episodes I've seen not enough apparently?

I figured there was something up with her since we see the Abductor's planet behind her in the water in the OP...

But I'm still rooting for her regardless, both Zessica and Mikono strike me as interesting character's.

Thanks for these infos Katapan

Just as planned

And I'm not really surprised about Mikono. She seems the kind of girl who seems gentle but in reality has a dark side. And I'm sure this dark side is because of Cayenne.

Oh.. I failed to notice that. Saying she's 'evil' is much too vague; she could very well be rotten to the core (unlikely), or like Kusa said, she may simply have some sort of dark side.

And Okada is a troll that likes to play with the audience's mind,I'm taking anything she says with a grain of sault.

Well have you seen a women when they are really jealous? That is literally like pure evil itself and if these little bread crumbs are true and Zessica's feelings with start to mature more towards Amata well i can see how Mikono could go over to the darkside.

Yeah.. XD. But that's what I meant by saying her statement was 'vague', even if I didn't include that exact example.

That's possible, I'm also thinking of a possible betrayal in that if Kagura succeeded in kidnapping her, Stockholm Syndrome + Destiny may lead to her agreeing to Kagura's group philosophy and (perhaps unwittingly, it depends) help them out and makes her 'evil'. That would also mean that Amata is stuck at Neo-Deava with Zessica, making it a perfect opportunity for her to get more spotlight and for her feelings to grow.

Interesting if true. It sounds right for sure, especially the part about Mikono being a bit endearing for trying so hard, but still being an accidental villain due to her airheadness.

My guess at a rough outline up to the shocking events, then: she won't get abducted next week, but the seed of going to Altair will be planted, and in particular Kagura's single-mindedness will appeal to Mikono, for sure. Some kind of shenanigans will go down during the slice-of-life episodes, leaving the already-insecure Mikono feeling even-more useless (and thinking that Amata's not interested in her anymore, either). Might be as simple as her completely failing to manifest an element, despite putting in tons of effort, and watching Zessica and Amata start bonding over their training.

Mikono will get an offer from Kagura (or perhaps directly from Mykage?) and *voluntarily* decide to go to Altair, sneaking away in the middle of the night. When she arrives @ Altair we'll get some exposition and backstory, and she'll decide to go through with the wedding (even if it means she'll die, or whatever) because by doing so she can save vega from the abductors. She finally gets her chance to be useful, yadda yadda.

Cue up the rescue arc, where stuff will really hits the fan. If it plays out roughly as outlined above there's a huge range of "shocking" ways it could go, including Mikono dying (potential rage from Amata and Kagura), Kagura dying (potential rage from Mikono and Mykage), and lord knows what other wild directions it could go.

That said, I'm not sure if I'd stick with the show if it deviated too far from the straightforward Amata-Mikono pairing; I'm not really shipping them per se, I just see this show as "simple fun", and if the romantic plots get too complicated or emo it wouldn't be "simple fun" for me anymore.

I know I might regret this later (for it's kinda early to call it) but I'm going to say Amata x Mikono win.

What's really interestinng is, in the end, it's maybe because of Cayenne visions that Cayenne visions will really happen. I mean because of his visions, Cayenne treated "badly" his sister and because of that, his visions will happen. That's why he always has them.

That's an interesting take on Okada's statement. However, I think something like this would be a little too dark for the show; killing off popular characters is never a good thing for a show that comes across as a colourful mecha story with some romance.

I usually like dark stories, but I'd prefer to know if the show is one or not from the get-go. Otherwise, I may end dropping the show.

I totally agree, I don't mind a dark show or a show with complicated characters, but I don't like shows that start out all "broad strokes! primary colors!" and then turn all grimdark partway through; if it starts going that way I'll be dropping it too.

So even though it's probably mostly wrong, I think I'm at least in the right ballpark up until "shocking developments", but my guesses past "Mikono goes to Altair" are just me inventing "shocking" scenarios for kicks. I really like the idea of Kagura getting killed off -- and anger over this changing "fabulous Mykage, stealer of your women" into "furious Mykage, destroyer of your world" -- but that seems unlikely (unless Kagura's just a clone/android/whatever and there're like 10 more Kaguras in cold storage, but that also seems unlikely).
