Did any sinister council of time-traveling space vampires show up? *^▽^*

And how's the OP? Better or worse than the TM Revolution x Nana Mizuki teamup?

If you know japanese, then it's fine. But don't get your hopes up for the subs. Because this is a pre-airing. Most groups wouldn't bother subbing it. Unless they want to do the pre-airing version and the new version of episode 1 in the winter season.

The art was a bit crappy in this episode. But just saw a pic, and looks like the quality will improve in the first episode.
That's right, I forgot about that. I guess I'll just watch the raw to get a general impression of sorts.

Did they say how many episodes this is getting?

God, I hope there are more female mecha pilots. Hina can't be the ONLY one in the entire series who then

yes there are:

Spoiler for image:


I think Hina is an interesting mc.

Edit: forget to add to it: 'i don't know if they are also pilots or not'. But I think you are right: they are maybe only bridge bunnies

Looking at the previews, looks like 'male only' pilots (if we put Hina aside).

Are you sure? The previous promo videos and website show that those girls are just bridge bunnies.

Ep.1 (pre-air)

Sunrise's latest mecha series, and as generic as a Sunrise mecha series can be

Spoiler for Ep 1:


Oh well, nothing really stands out, but at least the mechas and the characters are well drawn. Now if they can only draw up a decent story and engaging battles (I have no doubt that there will be plenty of fanservice) this show might just be watchable

"NICE COUPLING"

Yes, this is all I needed to know about this series. XDDD

Generic or not (and yes, it is painfully generic), I'm in. XD

....my god, it's been a good five minutes and I'm still laughing..... XDDD

Well, the beginning is the better than expected, even with all of the stamps. I hope Sunrise will do a better job here after Valvrave fail

Also I can't skip an anime with character names like Vasily Tarjim and Elvira Hill

This is becoming a real annoyance if you consider all the mecha series Sunrise has done at this point including Gundam. When's the last time there's a title where it has female mecha pilots and are in the forefront the overall plot and not half-assed it? Idolmaster Xenoglossia? Sora wo Kakeru Shoujo? Arguably Code Geass? Not many, huh compared to the endless number of male mecha pilots in a lot of Sunrise's shows. The biggest kicker is Studio 8, the studio was created solely so they could make series where the female characters are in more in the forefront as protagonists and/or action girls (see the Mai series, Accel World, Horizon, Love Live for example), is working on a series where the females are FREAKIN' relegated as BRIDGE BUNNIES or commanding officers while the guys are doing all the action. That paradigm just reeks cliched.

^look, the show is titled "BUDDY COMPLEX," the main character shows awesome sync with the other main guy right in the first episode, and the mecha's system helpfully spells out "NICE COUPLING" (oh lol XDDDD) just in case there's someone not getting it. XD

I'm not entirely sure that this is a show where one should expect female pilots in the focus...

(I'm really looking forward to see how seriously this series will take itself, because it has all the makings of a hilariously tongue-in-cheek show. I hope Sunrise will have the guts to go there.)

The fact the mobile game was able to have female pilots shows there really is no excuse for the lack variety.

Makes me wonder if that rumor that's going around is going to be true.

Hirayama (producer) said in the interview that Studio 8 seemed to project "the bishoujo" image, but they actually wanted to challenge different types of anime. Robot anime seemed to be the right fit because the genre's different [from immediate previous projects like Love Live/Horizon] and they have the right staff for it.

The pairing concept comes from that living in this world is better/easier with partner or communities, especially after the earthquake. They also didn't want to use boy/girl because people would auto-associate that with romance, which there will be, but staff don't want that direction to be the sole focus as this is a more "traditional mecha with friendship, endeavor, and victory". He didn't mention why there are no girls pairing, but just that guy pairing fit their goals better.

Unrelated to your post but he also mentioned close combat will be hand drawn, but long flights and high speed movement will be CG. Hand-drawn mecha's always a gianormous bonus for me.

First episode's pretty ok (Hayamin!!), and Bizon's just hilarious as hell. As shown in the ED, he and Hina probably had a past together, but got NTR'ed so hard that (ry. I just hope that Hina still showns up later on, I am still butthurt about Kanade in Symphogear. Only problem is that this is probably one cour?

oh god XDDDD

Anyway, really, there are a million shows out there with girls as the main characters, most of them catering to male viewers, so to be honest I'm not particularly bothered.

Given the lack of blonde girl pilots in the cast you're probably thinking of Dio who is a guy. (NICE COUPLING.)

*braces self for yet another round of "omg there's icky gay in my manly entertainment"*

I think you mean this trailer, right?:
YouTube
Sorry; dynamic content not loaded. Reload?

I must say that this trailer is not the anime, but the game (which seem to have quite different histories)
