Well I saw this a few weeks ago and that Gen was involved, but I'm not really excited to be honest. I'll surely marathon it when it ends because #TrustinGen, even if it's mecha.

I doubt people are excited enough for 3 months worth of hype discussion though...I was surprised when I noticed Stark wasn't the one who made this thread...

I'm intentionally keeping my expectations at rock bottom after Suisei no Gargantia belly-flopped. It's too easy for a mecha series to drown in its own tropes, no matter who's on the production team. Especially when it's about kids.

Ei Aoki only did the storyboard for one episode of Bakemonogatari, that might be a little much to put to his credit. He's directed Fate/Zero, Ga-Rei: Zero, Girls Bravo (2004-2007), the first Kara no Kyoukai movie, and Wandering Son.

Edit: I'm more interested in this just to see how Troyca does on quality, even if the anime is another clichebacle.

The staff on this one is ridiculously good. This has be one of my most anticipated shows of the year.

HEY! I liked Gargantia! So that's a plus in my book.

It felt like too many cooks spoiled the broth.

Gen's touch also felt pretty weak, I hope he's not shyamalaning.

He might've just been hampered by working under a lower content rating though. Most of the strengths he's developed revolve around more adult content, either as dark themes or outright violence. In Gargantia he felt watered down.

Mecha and Urobutchi. I'll probably give this a try. The PV didn't impress me too much though.

With Gen Urobuchi the one who is making this show, the anticipation is definitely there. I wonder what dark and ambiguous themes he will throw our way when this show is out.

I'm really into mecha anime, so this is definitely something I will watch. That being said I will keep realistic expectations, famous talent is not a guarantee of success.

So far the show has some nice visuals and music, but I will need to see more to get really excited.

I felt the same way about the PV. It wasn't actually that endearing as a PV. I just have tons of faith in almost anything Hiroyuki Sawano dips his magical hands in.

This one could be good but Urobuchi is just doing the story (a lot less involved then Gargantia). But with Takayama is the screenwriter it could be good (though he has done mediocre ones but more good ones thankfully). Aoki is actually a very good director so I know it will be well directed (unless he changes). Sawano is really good composer and make all his soundtracks excellent (even Kill La Kill which I thought was a pretty good anime had an amazing soundtrack). So yeah who knows this could be AOTY or absolute terrible but given the staff I'm leaning towards a really good anime.
