Knights of Sidonia I think will be a top quality show. The studio itself is a newer up and comer trying to prove themself. Majority of their work is smaller scale, they do specialize in fantastic 3DCG and directorial roles. This seems to be their first full breakout into full on anime genre so I expect they will pull out the stops and try to be revolutionary. Good or bad, time will tell.

The studio itself has been around since early 80s, but only recently gotten into full production mode. The staff doing it, as well as the original story writers are all excellent in their fields.

Edit: I will need to get the manga...

http://starchild.fm/anime/knightsofsidonia/

Show appears to be a full 3DCG (or mostly) which can allow for some really in depth storytelling.

Followed second would probably be Nobunaga the fool.

Just wait a few years. You'll have a friend come up to you and be all "dude, I just saw this thing called Gundam, it's really old come check it out" and you'll be HOOKED. Making model kits and getting into fights with other, lesser Gundam fans.

They're called "Gundam Fanatics" and they're far more dangerous than those vanilla Otaku's. Gundam Fanatics don't need moe or love or any of that weak stuff. They just run around creating cosplays, making models, and punching other Gundam Fanatics for not liking the same Era.


I am ALMOST interested in Captain Earth from Bones. Bones has been rocky in it's storytelling, despite the great animation, so I'm iffy.

Nobunaga the Fool walks a fine line here, if it's anything like Horizon in the Middle of Nowhere, I'm not going to follow it. That said, JOAN OF ARC, HOW CAN YOU MESS HER UP? We'll see! It's also from Satelight...who're still on the edge if you ask me. I'm going to try it out

I was going to say this as a Joke without even looking at Buddy Complex...but then I looked at it...and now I wish I was Joking

OH MY GOD ANOTHER GUNDAM CLONE FROM SUNRISE! WHAT WILL THEY THINK OF NEXT!




I GET IT SUNRISE, YOU OWN GUNDAM AND GUNDAM IS FANTASTIC. HOW ABOUT YOU REMAKE THE ORIGINAL GUNDAM INSTEAD OF COPY-PASTING IT'S CHARACTERS OVER AND OVER AND OVER AND OVER.

Whats that? Code Geass sold well you say? Well yeah, it was a perspective flip of the original Gundam and was handled quite well, why wouldn't it?
Try that again with Valvrave? Okay......the animation is even better this time, but the perspective flip is gone, and....Amuro has vampire powers now? Ummmmmm, fine.
OH, Buddy Complex now? The only thing that Char-clone is missing is a mask! And do I even see a Frau Bow? The original Gundam cast has like, 1 Japanese guy among all the western and space people...now you have 1 American and 7 Japanese people?
WAIT, I don't think you made the enemy uniforms Zeon enough, try adding a little more Green or Red. Don't worry about their faces or hair styles, those are obviously Zeon enough to pass inspection.

Hell, not even Gundam is Cloning itself anymore! They're rocking things like Build Fighters!

Though every time people get all super gundam or a new gundam clone comes up, I just start thinking of the genshiken 2 intro.

I Saw I came and i watched.. I left. Gundam 00 and Seed told me enough of the franshice to know what I liked and don't like about it. And 00 was the only one I feel the was DIFFERENT compared to every other Gundam since that I like it only. SEED was train wreck..... a fucking train wreck.

I'm not much of a mecha person, Knights of Sidonia is the only one I'm interested in. I'm fully prepared for it to be a terrible, shoddy knock-off of an anime in pathetic CGI, but I do really hope it does well. Tsutomu Nihei was literally my introduction to manga (Abara, Biomega, Blame!, etc.) so I'm really glad something of his is finally getting adapted.

If it tanks I will be a very sad fanboy.

I'm looking forward to Captian Earth, despite the eventual Capltain Planet jokes.

Probably the standard 48-52 episode run for a Gundam series, although Gundam00 split that into two separate parts.

Did everyone forget that Gundam Unicorn's final episode is 2014?

Also GPB isn't finished yet, so is 2014 mecha anime xD

Nobunaga the fool seems awesome!
