The site is up now, complete with a teaser video (no animation footage). It appears my translation of the title is wrong, since it appears that "20 Faces" is a guy. So it's The Daughter of 20 Faces? No idea, never read the manga lolz.

It's actually a detective story that revolves around a female thief, our cover girl, named Chico. She is apparently the successor to a famous character (Kaijin Nijū-Mensō) created by a very popular author in Japan named, Edogawa Ranpo. One more interesting fact is that when his name is written in Japanese, it spells out another famous detective/mystery writer in English language who goes by the name Edgar Allen Poe. Looking forward to it.

Just saw your post and have added the MFI tag on your word for now though I'm sort of puzzled by the fact MFI is going to distribute a Bones product.

Thanks. Well, Media Factory owns the rights to the original manga, so that's the connection here. Beyond that, Media Factory is also behind the Soul Eater anime, which is BONES' other anime for April. The last BONES show that Media Factory was involved in was RahXephon, so yeah - it's been a long time.

Edit: For those that can't read the Japanese copyright, FujiTV has put up an English page promoting this title (to protential western licensees probably):

http://www.fujicreative.co.jp/intlde...il/1_0056.html

The page also has more information about the show in english, as well as revealing the episode count of 22.

I hope this series gets its own forum here in AnimeSuki, can't wait to watch it and see how Chiko will turn up with Aya.

There's going to be a special stage for this at the Tokyo Anime Fair at the end of this month. Aya Hirano will be the main guest, and it's been announced that she's not only voicing the lead character, but also singing the ending theme titled "Unnamed world".

Trailer from TAF.
Looks kind of steam punky or Victorian. I really dig the funky submarines, airships and car chases. Sort of reminds me of Secret of the Cerulean Sand...

There doesn't seem to be much love for Chico though, perhaps Soul Eater has overshadowed it?

I'd actually not heard about this show until seeing this excellent trailer tonight, I doubt I'm the only one who may have missed this until this addictive trailer.

I think more people will get interested as they see this trailer though, this looks really promising, LOVING the scale of the setting and the feel of the show's look and tech and the action and chases look really nice.

My only question was, as someone who has no knowledge of the manga, whether or not Chico was hopefully going to actually get to do anything or if she was just along for the ride/lead around? In such an action adventure heavy show it'd be nice if she gets to do a lot as such a primary character. And reading the thread again, a previous post above actually says she does become a "thief" herself, so if that's true that answers my question and makes it sound even more interesting.

The skilled guy seems pretty cool and looks quite a bit like Roger from the totally awesome Big O

Naturally, it won't surprise me though if Soul Eater overshadows it though given the type of accessible show it looks like and many of fan favorite Bones' FMA staff, combined with Bones seemingly positioning it as one of the primary Spring series advertising wise.

I enjoyed what I got to see of Secret of the Cerulean Sand.

I have to say I didn't expect much after duckroll reminded me that Bones weren't doing the animation for it, but that trailer looks really good.

Telecom is a good studio, why would you not expect much?

When I saw the title I thought of CLAMP for reasons I don't know.

I'll give an honest answer, I haven't seen a single thing they did animation production on, so going from one of my fav Studios in Bones to someone I've only seen do In-Between Animation made my expectations lower. At any rate the trailer was impressive and I see they have Robo Crosser on the way, so it looks like Telecom is going to be a lot more prolific from now on.

Clarification time. Telecom animation studio, is more known as a studio for it's animation services, especially for TMS shows. They provided work for Inu Yasha and Kekkashi (probably some of the better animated episodes).

Fans think of studios that hold sway over all aspects of production and not just animation so, yea I can see why more people would recall bones rather then telecom.

Still Duckroll is correct in expecting good from telecom in that they normally make really good looking animation.

I've seen most of Kekkaishi (need to watch the last 7 eps sometime soon...) I don't suppose you know which episodes they did?
