Synopsis

Due to humanity obtaining the data technology that has evolved to a great amount- called "Mana"- the human race is able to subjugate all wars, starvation, pollution, and other problems on Earth by using its power, which is similar to magic. Earth has obtained the utopia of complete peace and no wants.

First princess of the Misurugi Empire, Angelize. As with everyone else, she also had no wants or worries. She was celebrated by the people of the empire, and was supposed to wear the crown. However, she realizes the shocking truth that she is a Norma. "Norma": An irregular existence that cannot use Mana, and are treated as heretics and as "things" rather than people. Having everything stolen from her, she isolates herself on a remote island.

What was waiting for her there was a fateful meeting with a group of Norma girls who know nothing but battle. The girls spend their days riding humanoid robot weapons called "Barameiru" hunting giant dragons that have come from another dimension to invade. Having her name taken from her, what will soldier Ange see at the end of the fight? What can she believe in? What will she obtain? The story of a single girl's fortitude starts now.

Hmm.. besides that one image there doesn't seem to be much else to really talk about. The names don't really ring much of a bell except the studio.

Hopefully we can get some more details soon.

Hmm... some of the designs aren't too bad. Some interesting hair, though the main character's hairstyle is extremely bland. Heretical of me to say, but I'm kind of tired of maids.

From http://crossange.com/introduction/:

So like, humans got this thing called Mana, right? And they do things like magic with it and stuff.

Since it's magic... well, you'd think they'd blow each other up and stuff, but war goes away, famine goes away, pollution goes away, and pretty much they make a nice little utopia for themselves.

So, we got our princess here, Angelieze, the first princess of this utopian Misurugi Empire. She's supposed to live with a silver spoon in her mouth, and she's supposed to be loved by the people, and she's supposed to be crowned empress. But like, they found out she's a Norma, which is what they call people who can't use Mana before they start treating them like dirt. Well, crap.

Instead what happens is she gets exiled to some island out in bumfsck nowhere, where waiting for her are a bunch of other Norma. All females who've always lived a life of constant fighting, mind you. They all are riders of these transforming humanoid mechs called Paramails, and they have to fight an invading dragon horde... WHO COME FROM ANOTHER DIMENSION!!!!!

She's lost her name, she's lost her life, and now our poor little Angie gets stuck in the middle of this fight.

Characters here: http://crossange.com/character/

Angie: Nana Mizuki
Salia: Kitamura Eri
Hilda: Tamura Yukari
Vivian: Kuwashima Houko
Rosalie: Ishihara Kaori
Ersha: Koshimizu Ami
Chris: Ogura Yui
Momoka: Uesaka Sumire

Also, looks like the movie is up.

EDIT: No and So look so similar in katakana. I'm definitely seeing Paramail, though (doesn't start with B).

Well that gives a better idea of what it is about. Though so far it does not sound that impressive. A bit original i supose. But rather looks like one will have to hope on the action being good more than anything else.

The suits though look a bit .. uhmm.. Well curious. I mean they seem more like swimsuits than gear for piloting a mecha.

Hopefully this will turn out to be good.

This is gonna be the goofy mecha show of the season.

There's a goofy mecha anime every season...

But what if it surpasses my expectations and is actually great? That's always my excuse for watching them anyway lol

Speaking of which, the producer of Under the Dog said he was enjoying Captain Earth lately, and it makes me want to give it another try...

More than likely this will be Daisuki, Funimation or both on the NA license front (Since it's a Sunrise Title)

This gets a guaranteed watch from me just because Nana Mizuki's in it.

This has the potential to be interesting, which means it also has the potential to screw up.
