Arata Kangatari
As mentioned above, Arata gets an anime.

It's funny, there was a false report that this had happened a few months back, but this looks legit. I quite like the manga - it was actually licensed in English and I followed it before I came to Japan. Watase Yuu is a very talented artist (though stay away from her doujins unless you want quite a shock). Arata has quite an involving plotline as well. I'll be very interested to see who gets this - I'd love to see Brain's Base working on it.

Update: ANN says Satelight. That's a very solid choice as well.

About Time
I'm kinda surprised that this didn't get adapted sooner. Anyway, looking forward to this one.

Hopefully this new show will have Aquarion Evol/AKB0048 level of sublime visuals. ;)

Finally an anime for this series but hopefully it won't get the little budget treatment like TE.

Judging all of satelight based on just Muv Luv Total Eclipse

I was super thrilled when I saw this announcement. I am a bit surprised though considering how different it is from the majority of the other shows being put out right now.

Watase Yuu isn't always on point (who is?), but when she is she's incomparable. Even though I doubt I would be able to sit through it all again Fushigi Yuugi will always occupy a tender spot in my heart. And Ayashi no Ceres ranks very highly on my favorites list.

I'm a bit behind in Arata Kangatari but knowing that it's going to be adapted reminds me that I need to get on that!

It's merely their most egregious example of their inability to actually draw characters in proper proportions. They're good at CGI... but then agian they abuse CGI way too much. I am just not a fan of their production quality, and what I saw of Aquarion is no different.

Westlo 2012-12-08 06:30

Most of TE is outsourced anyway... would be like judging Madhouse on Kamen no Maid Guy. Still Satelite have lost a lot of talent due to GOHANDS and Studio 8-Bit forming from their ranks... wonder how they can shove CGI in this...

Not to being dick, but at these day usually you associate Satelight with jarring CGI and minimal/bad character animation.

Bern-san 2012-12-09 16:50

I'll wait for a PV to get an opinion, but good to see a Watase Yuu manga getting an adaptation. I need to read the latest chapters.

Since Fushigi Yuugi: Genbu Kaiden only has one chapter left to be finished I hope we can see an anime of it someday.

FlareKnight 2012-12-10 03:04

Well let's hope for the best when it comes to the visuals.

As to the news itself I'm glad to hear it. Always nice when one of the few manga I'm keeping an eye on actually gets its own anime. I'm looking forward to it.

MisaoFan 2012-12-12 06:59

Official website opened
The visuals are somehow deviated from the manga art, but it was okay.

Guardian Enzo 2012-12-12 19:14

"Okay" about covers it. I don't really like seeing Watase Yuu's designs changed as much as they have been, TBH.

Guardian Enzo 2012-12-18 09:20

First trailer is out:

Also, Yasuda Kenji (Ikoku Meiro no Croisee) was announced as director. I'm very pleased with that choice.

MisaoFan 2012-12-18 09:31

Just watched the PV. It was fascinatingly thrilling throughout with a decent animation and interestingly well-done fight scenes. I can't wait to see all the buzz it gets.

Guardian Enzo 2012-12-18 19:01

I'm happy with everything so far except the changes to Yuu-sensei's character designs.

Flower 2012-12-18 19:10

Hmm ... now there is a curious story premise. May give this one a looksee....

Guardian Enzo 2012-12-18 19:17

I like the manga a lot, although I'll say the synopsis they give in that ANN piece gives a pretty skewed idea of what the real focus of the story is. This is not a trap comedy by any stretch of the imagination.

Flower 2012-12-18 19:37

Hmm ... maybe I will give the manga a try then.
