Title seems to be "Kouya no Kotobuki Hikoutai".

I thought Tsutomu Mizushima and Michiko Yokote would be working on the Shirobako movie at this point. It's gonna take years for that movie to even start pre-production if the two key staff members are fucking around elsewhere.

That being said, I'm still excited about this. I think Mizushima and Yokote has some pretty good synergy and I'm really looking forward to see what they're gonna come up with for this show.

That's ridiculous. There is clearly a plane in that promotional image, not just cute girls .

It doesn't really matter much to me what the gimmick attached to it is this time. I wasn't a fan of the cute girls only cast back when i first saw it in K-On nine years ago, and after nine years of endless "Cute Girls + [Insert Premise Here]", I feel like I've seen enough to know how it goes. Don't get me wrong, they've clearly gotten smarter about it. At least some of them try to tell a decent story, and we've even gotten the occasional gem (Madoka Magica). But in all honesty, at this point I just feel like it's long worn out. I only ever tolerated it to begin with but after I watched A Place Further Than A Universe (a show I wanted to love but couldn't) I finally realised that I'm just so damn sick of it now.

I think it's fairly easy to tell what their aims are when their promotional poster is a cute girl in an unrealistically cute outfit in front of what looks like an all cute girl cast. Trust me, I'd love to be proven wrong but it just screams "derivative and forgettable".

Though to be fair, I see that in practically everything these days. XP

I have same mentality as haak. Sometimes I found them as much pandering as your typical harem anime

The most depressing thing about this announcement is that it shows even the creators with big-time resumes (and these two certainly qualify) seemingly no longer have the pull to do anything else. If you want to get an anime funded these days, this is pretty much the only route the production committees will approve. Very, very sad.

"seemingly no longer have the pull to do anything else" umm what? where do u get that from. for me this looks like one of the more unique projects that got announced seeing as how the other "veterans" with pull are just producing edgy bs that we got tired of 10 years ago

I'm pretty sure that by now the producers must have some sort of mathematical formula figured out to calculate the increase in profits when inserting Cute Girls Only into a premise. If I were them, I'd call it the Moe-Coefficient....


...aaaaaand that's me done for the day.

I actually couldn't tell that it was a CG anime from the thumbnail.

Well, it's been a while since we've had an actual girls-in-planes anime (no, dragons don't count as planes for this discussion), and it looks like Mizushima's bringing his attention to detail from GuP to this.

I hate to say this, but I'm quite disappointed with no Bf 109..

This is like Shirobako's anime fully realized.

Oh fuck, it's all CGI. Damn, I'm not a CGI hater but the truth is it only looks good in very specific cases like Houseki no Kuni. Generally it just makes the character look weird and doll-like.

I'll try to keep an open mind, at least until we get a longer PV or something. But this is slightly disappointing already.
