The art and designs look really promising, and the premise is good. I think this is gonna be my no.1 show to look forward to.

Hidiaasu = Hideous.....right?

It can't be worse than any gundam or mecha anime when tomino was involved in when he was depressed or at his worst.

Welp, Butcher's already deconstructed magical girls, the quintessential female genre, so it'd make sense to next take a baseball bat to mecha, the quintessential male genre. (And I don't think I need to point out that both genres have plenty fans in the opposite gender.)

Of course, almost halfway through Psycho-Pass, no main cast member has died (yet). Someone probably will

the mecha was already deconstructed at least a dozen times over the last 40 years, I don't know how it could be deconstructed more.

When I first look at the illustrations only. I won't believe it has gen's touch on it. When I read his name on it. I was surprised. At first look it doesn't resemble his past works.

If he can make a more powerful mecha deconstruction than Eva, then he has it in the pocket. But I don't think something that crazy is possible yet for the human mind.

Please stop using the word "deconstruction", guys. It isn't a word that applies to genres of fiction.

Not that one, certainly, and even if you were to use it to mean "the application of real-world causality to an idea" neither Madoka nor anything Urobuchi has ever written falls under such a definition.
Don't get me wrong, I really do enjoy most of his work, but I wish people would stop pretending that it has any sort of deep literary value.
No, Suisei no Galgantia is not going to 'deconstruct' mecha. It might end up having cute characters butchered in increasingly horrible ways as that is something the scriptwriter loves doing, but that has nothing to do with any meaning of the word 'deconstruction', valid or otherwise.

Spoiler for off topic:


As for the show, I'm actually thinking if it will have enough mecha. The whole alien race fighting seems like it will be the major factor of the show, and the element the plot would revolve around. But it could also be just backstory, and we could have this be an adventure anime with touches of iyashikei.

Yes, I know it's Urobuchi, and Murata doesn't seem like the type of guy who would do that anyway, but there's a chance. They may never go back to this "space-time warp" and see the aliens again, the whole show could be set on the water planet with any potential threat being an insider.

I don't hope for that, I want fight scenes and hideous aliens. But one can never be sure on this industry...

Arguably not even Evangelion was the first mecha deconstruction (depending on whether you want to use "that word" to describe fiction). Madoka certainly wasn't the first magical girl decon; people say Utena comes closer to being a true MG decon. But just because mecha's gotten that treatment before wouldn't mean Butcher wouldn't want to take a stab at it (heh).

I'm still waiting for gen to actually surprise people and have something not full of despair for once.

Even if he did the Butcher fanboys will still be saying "just wait until the final episode, shit gonna get real!". And after that airs, I bet it will have a movie continuation where the butcher is gonna shine! *insert jack nic nodding gif*

I like Gen due to his solid story. Iím not a gore-hound or killíem-all enthusiast, but I donít really mind them.

Character animation reminds me a lot of FMA Milos. It looks like it could be a pretty fun scifi adventure anime. I wonder who the animation director and animation character designer is...

Trying to figure out who's voicing Red. Sounds like Nobunaga Shimazaki, though a part of me thinks it could be Ryota Ohsaka doing a slightly deeper voice.

Just watched the PV : it was excellent and has great music, not to mention the visuals are still enticing. I hope Gen will deliver a fun and lighthearted sci-fi story, even if it end up being consumed by darkness just like Madoka Magica and Psycho-Pass.
