Hmm, looks like Sunrise decided to go with a Geass/Gundam 00-esque art style, and it looks really good. The promo image had me worried, but the character designs look a lot better in the anime. Given that it's an original anime, if this is done right, this could turn out to be Sunrise's next big hit. Summer season looks like it'll be a repeat of Winter season; a small season with mostly crappy shows with only two that stand out (Sacred Seven and Blood-C in this case).

My only honest revsevations about this anime is that none of the staff particularly stand out in what they've done in the past, and Star Driver has me a bit weary of "school-mecha" shows now. ^^;

True, this isn't like IS where they have the benefit of the "First Timer's fame". But from the look of the teaser, it seems to be something between a mix of Zeorymer, Code Geass and Lt Scarlet/BGC.

I'm tentatively excited about this one. On the one hand everything in the trailer looks and sounds great, but on the other there's the specter of "school battle" hanging over the production. I don't know about other people but I'm beyond the point of being sick to death of stories that take place in schools and follow the sets of cliches that setting a show in a school seem to warrant these days. Pretty much all the shows I've seen that have been set primarily in a school in the past few years have ended up being dreadfully boring even when they should otherwise have had a tremendous amount of potential in all other elements present in the production. As far as I'm considered the school setting is nothing but a limiter.

Still on another superfluous hand there's the fact that Sunrise productions rarely limit themselves to being humdrum affairs and that nothing in that trailer pointed to the show being overwhelming governed by a school setting. In fact kind of gave off a Gaogaigar vibe, something I have not felt in a long long time.

So in short, please please don't let this show get dragged down by the shortcomings of a school setting like so many mecha and even non-mecha shows before it.

Well hey, looks like I'm not the only one. One can only hope that this show doesn't waste like half of it's time on the banality of high school antics that have become an unfortunate staple in anime as of late.

I double this request.
I'd be very grateful. )
Upd: Somehow I managed to make it work. And it looks great! Hope the show won't disappoint.

^ Terashima Takuma and Nakajima Megumi. The rest of the cast includes Okamoto Nobuhiko, Irino Miyu, Itou Kanae, Nomizu Iori, Konishi Katsuyuki and Ookawa Tooru... Definitely not too shabby.

So according to Yuki Kajiura on twitter just now, the OP theme will be "stone cold" by FictionJunction. The single will be released on the 3rd of August this year. Also, it seems Wakana (of Kalafina/FictionJunction) will have a role in the cast.

canta-per-me.net also confirms that the ED theme will be "Kagayaki Ato -kiseki-" by Nanri Yuuka once more working with Takumi Ozawa in addition to manzo (KoreZombie's ED).

Well, guess I'll be on board for the first few episodes of this =).

Theses artists are also worked on Ookami Kakushi.

What is this messed up show that my eyes are saying ''It looks tasty!''. It seems multiple genres are thrown into it. Looks worthwhile, especially with those fluid mecha animation. Bookmark button, activate!

Hmm... Battles look good, but I'm still worried about the story.

Just regard this as your daily doze of mindless fun like Star Driver.

This seems different from Star Driver. More serious about itself.

I don't think that there are any anime's out there that actually preach what Star Driver does as is. However, it does look like it's going to be mostly some very fun looking fights, so I'm not really concerned for the story. Scryed wasn't anyways remembered for it's thought provoking dialogue.

Anyway, this show looks like it'll be very fun to watch, so I'll check it out.

I wouldn't even say that Scryed was remembered for the battles themselves, but for how awesome characters like Kazuma and Ryuhou brought them to life with fiery personalities, though their last battle was epic. XD

That aside however, I'm undecided on this from what little I've seen. The main protagonist certainly doesn't seem anything like Takuto of Star Driver; rather anti-social, withdrawn, and hesitant to use his new-found powers from what I saw in the PV.

It's too soon to say anything, but it may be tough to enjoy even a well animated battle if our boy can't get fired up about it, one way or the other. Still, I'll check it out for the first few eps to see how it plays out.

After looking over the staff again and seeing who is doing the Series Composition (Yoshida Shin), it struck me...this is going to be an original Shounen anime. Like, straight up Shounen. Nothing like Star Driver or Code Geass, just Shounen. That explains the heavy emphasis on action and the general Shounen feel the trailer gives off. The reason this surprised me so much is because after a bit of thought I realized that there hasn't been an original Shounen anime in a damn long time...if in the past decade at all. Can't wait to see what happens here, Shounen is my favorite genre and it's great to see Sunrise creating an original one.
