Meet the Characters and Mecha From Upcoming Sci-Fi Anime "Suisei no Galgantia"

The writer of "Madoka Magica" and the studio of "Ghost in the Shell" bring us anime's answer to "Water World"

Suisei no Galgantia could be quite interesting, or it could be anime's Water World. The spring 2013 anime sees Madoka Magica and Fate/zero writer Gen Urobuchi on a series about a boy soldier stranded on a remote planet whose inhabitants live on a convoy of ships. Other than maybe the protagonist, so far, it doesn't sound like very "Urobutcher" material.


Fullmetal Alchemist: The Sacred Star of Milos' Kazuya Murata directs the Production I.G project with Hanaharu Naruko on character designs. Makoto Ishiwata, who did the Pyscho-Pass Dominator gun, is on mecha design, with Taro Iwashiro (Sacred Star of Milos) on music.
