im not saying visually, it had that focus on a girls slice of life without any romance or comedy, and some plot way there in the background, but well to be honest i dropped sora oto at episode 3.

Besides having a bit of romance and comedy, that's a very broad description that could cover a lot of things. Even then, the environment and tone were very different between the two shows. I would only compare them in the most superficial of senses.

It seems like every season theres a thread or two where people express their fears that a show would "turn into k-on". Why? Because anime turns.

In no way does the first 3 episodes represent the whole show,it has a plot and drama that come later.

If more shows could turn into K-ON! in the sense of being driven by the strength of their characters (I believe characters are more important than story, though the best series utilize both), then that's hardly the worst thing one could turn into.

i can´t ague that you prefer characters over story,thats your taste, but its the opposite for me, so i hope it doesnt.

Well, you can't really blame anyone in that case, the rules says anyone is free to drop anything if they aren't satisfied after the 3rd episode

I am looking forward to this show immensely. Not only does it have the director of my 2nd favorite anime (Strike Witches) and the writer of my 1st favorite anime (Sound of the Sky), but the plot points:

- The theme is "friendship"
- The heroine is a 14-year-old girl
- The genre is "girl science-fiction action"
- It is a peaceful world where science has solved all problems
- The story is set on an island teeming with natural surroundings, and an artificial island built by science
- The heroine's family live an impoverished life in various ways
- The anime cutely depicts girls who strive to do their best

...are basically everything I love in anime. I predict this will be my favorite anime of 2013.
IF they're not trolling everyone... I could see it being like Symphogear IE some good clean fun.

Too bad no release on the story yet...

Just to be clear I'm not trying to put someone on trial for dropping a show

Just saying that there's reasons in later episodes that make the K-ON comparison dubious at best.

As for the show I'm not sure what to expect yet,just that I think it'll have an interesting setting and A-1 will hire talented animators and give us some nice looking action scenes.

Putting a bunch of big names together worked for Madoka, but not for Guilty Crown. This is just another one of Aniplex's bare attempts to create an instant-hit, really.

at this point my other concern is that A-1 has many projects at the same time, and this has proven a failure to other studios such as bones.

That's not a problem, A-1 is big studio with almost unlimited power due to their aniplex connection, they always using talented freelance for their project, so its not like they horse riding same staff for all of like work.

Its like thousand times I'm saying this about A-1

natsuiro kiseki having aniplex and sunrise in it didnt help it that much, also you shouldn´t forget this, even if i do agree aniplex is the best production company for many years now.

that's "bad"?

the animation is really great on that cut, sometime animator just given freedom to make off-model animation for more animation fluidity. the FMA: Milos movie is perfect example of this.. most people do not know the "uglier" chara design makes equivalent exchange for more animation.

And I know big time animator that working for that birdy cut, maybe totoum can give you the name? I don't watch 2nd season of birdy.

i didnt call it bad, but i wouldnt call it good, the best description would be unfinished, since they even apologized and fixed it in the dvds/bds, but its kinda my point, that multitasking can drop the quality of the product, and assuming this comes this fall that would be 5 series from a-1.
