Suisei no Gargantia - generic discussion thread



http://www.gargantia.jp/

Concept: Kazuya Murata, Gen Urobuchi
Director: Kazuya Murata
Series Composition/Script: Gen Urobuchi
Original Character Design: Hanaharu Naruko
Mecha Designer: Makoto Ishiwata
Music: Taro Iwashiro
Animation Production: Production I.G.

The anime starts on April 2013. They're also doing a manga in Newtype Ace.

English trailer: http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/news...led-in-english

Quote:
The story begins in the distant future in the far reaches of the galaxy. The Human Galactic Alliance has been constantly fighting for its survival against a grotesque race of beings. During an intense battle, the young lieutenant Red (played by Kaito Ishikawa) and his humanoid mobile weapon Chamber are swallowed up into a distortion of time and space.

Waking from his artificially induced hybernation, Red realizes that he has arrived on Earth, the long forgotten planet. On this planet that was completely flooded by the seas, people live in fleets of giant ships, salvaging relics from the seas' depths in order to survive.

Red arrives on one of the city fleets called Gargantia. With no knowledge of the planet's history or culture, he is forced to live alongside Amy (Hisako Kanemoto), a 15-year-old girl who serves as a messenger aboard the Gargantia fleet. To Red, who has lived a life where he knows nothing but fighting, these days of peace continue to surprise him.

With this project, manga artist Hanaharu Naruko (Shōjo Material, Kamichu!) is creating his first original character designs for an anime. Gen Urobuchi (Puella Magi Madoka Magica, Fate/Zero) of Nitroplus is supervising and writing the scripts. Taro Iwashiro (Red Cliff, Fullmetal Alchemist: The Sacred Star of Milos, live-action SHINOBI - Heart Under Blade and The Prince of Tennis) is scoring the music, and Kazuya Murata (Fullmetal Alchemist: The Sacred Star of Milos) is directing. (Murata and Urobuchi collaborated on the original concept of the anime.)

The television series will premiere in Japan next April.

Looking very much forward to this. Not only because of the Butcher, but also because the design looks really nice.

Now that's a weird combination.
I mean, no more than Ume and Gen were with Madoka, I guess, but still.

So I just rechecked the pic, and is it just me, or is the story be similar to Lucky Luke and Desert Punk (with a hint of Django) but with Urobutcher's writing ?
Anyways, the western cowboy setting is very rare in animes like this, so of course it might become another crowning jewel of the spring season for me.

Plot summary is here (I tried to translate it on Google Translate, but there's some errors left and right) :

Thanks for posting the updated staff info. The plot of the anime is set in a future where the human alliance is at war with a mysterious alien race called Hideous. The story is about a child soldier named Red who is caught in some sort of warp accident and finds himself on an unknown water-based planet where the people there live together in large ship convoys and travel in across the sea.

Here's a new scan:

So I take it this is Urobutcher's take on post-apocalyptic mecha anime?

My bet on the girl with green bag. But it's more possible that all four would suffer and die before series ends.

it is likely one of them is an alien, one is a time traveller, another will lose her head and the last one will turn into a monster^^

Production IG's latest efforts have been quite questionable IMO, so I'm keeping the wait and see approach.

You see this going down the bad end.

Urobuchi + mecha = awesomeness (?)

Anyway, I’m hyped for this.

My wet dream is for the Butcher to make his own Gundam series. The franchise suits him like a glove. Plus, Sunrise needs it after a commercial (and quality) wrong-turn that is Gundam AGE.

Btw, anybody else thinks “Yoko-clone” after seeing the bottom-right girl (from the pic duckroll posted)?
