I have to agree that character designs are not to my liking but the mecha space sci-fi setting is, so I'll just have to put up with them.

Why it had to be Hisashi Hirai is beyond me. While there're worse out there, his designs are definitely not appealing, which is a shame cos the premise sounds pretty fun indeed.

I don't think this is going to be anything like Gundam honestly. It's more of a comedy.

Any funny series is always welcome and PV2 was pretty good.

The character designs in this one look like they just riped scenes right out of Gundam SEED though. As in literally (hope they make some SEED jokes). That said if you take a look at the manga: http://www.heros-web.com/works/majestic2.html#worksNavi (I think that's the correct site) they don't look that much better. At least animated the manga designs would probably make the entire thing look like it's form the 60's.

The better. But the character design doesn't fit the comedy side... hehe

Depends on the comedy.

I think it fits. It's funnier because it looks so ugly!

Uhm... if by girly you mean "uncute" 5 year olds, who were dropped on their heads. I guess.

Hisashi Hirai has a very thing for droopy eyes in his characters, but I don't mind them despite the drastic character design changes. I'm seriously expecting a serious sci-fi show according to the first PV, but after seeing two others, it seems like they throw silly amount of dialogues here and there. No matter how ridiculous it looks, I'm seriously expecting it to either become the guilty pleasure of the spring season or turn out to be better than expected.

Well, color me interested. While I agree that the character designs could have been better, I am a sucker for sci-fi and mecha. I'm putting this on my "to watch" list.

That's actually a good point. Hisashi's derpy looking characters might actually help the comedy.

OP Theme: "Watashi wa Souzousuru" by Natsumi Kon
ED Theme: "Sayonara tteiu" by Chiaki Ishikawa

Ooohh, a new song by Chiaki Ishikawa is a really nice plus~ but still not strong enough to overcome the negative that is Hirai's fugly ass designs.

Okay, my wild stabs at Izuru and Ataru's VAs were indeed wrong. Hiroki Aiba's relatively no-name (outside of the TeniPri fandom I guess) and Junya Ikeda's an actor.

It's not just you, I think his earlier work are great, too. It's his newer works such as Fafner and Linebarrel that I don't like.

Wow, the mecha for Majestic Prince have pretty interesting designs: http://mjp-anime.jp/12mecha/index.html

Hopefully Orange is going to do interesting CG animations here like they did for Akito. Considering how they're credited for co-production of the series, this could be their moment to shine.
