The official site updated. Airing date will be 10/2. Seems to be on the same station and airing time as GATE though...

The objects on that girl's chest aren't heavy enough.


Maybe someone messed up the schedule or maybe GATE is airing at a new time?

My guess:
GATE is a split cour (unlikely) or it's moving to another station (likely).


EDIT:
So GATE is indeed a split cour and Heavy Object takes over this time slot, it makes me wonder if HO will be a 1 cour or split cour. I hope they announce an episode count # in the future....

Apparently may be 24 episodes but most certainly split cour because of GATE's airing time

Note: I am not 100% if this is legit or not for the episode count #.

Ok, so that answers where Gate went. The Gate opened and a Heavy Object came through.

One thing came straight to mind: Samus.
Not to say it's a copy, though it may have been an oversight.... maybe. >_> <_<

'bout time someone thought of a mech that actually seems realistically practical instead the usual "let's make this look human and not creative"-mech.

Looking forward to it.

I wonder how this'll stack up against Raildex. Hopefully the MCs are better than Touma and Index.

loli who should be in middle school but is instead an expert pilot? check.
a very cute-ish and adorable theme song for people who like CGDCT? check.

i'm not sure how i feel that they're adding cuteness in what's supposed to be a more serious anime series
it's like they're adding those to satisfy the otaku fanbase in Japan, not that i can blame them (they need to make a profit from the
fanbase afterall)

I thought the cute stuff was in the original material.

i was referring to both anime and the source material.
and it's not just this series, there's a trend where they add cuteness / moe where it's not really needed
(or make sense)

Ah, I see.

On one hand I had assumed from promotional material that this was going to be a more comedic series, so I don't necessarily think that more ridiculous elements are inappropriate.

But on the other hand I agree that some of the moe elements are concerning. The pilot girl being a secondary character, and the emotionless type makes me dubious that she's going to have a purpose beyond being cute. I would love to be proved wrong there though.

I think a lot of the trend is because anime and manga writers come from the same group that they cater to, which can mean that there's not a much demand or desire to have stories that break from accepted tropes. Shows can always break out of the mold, or just execute the tropes really well, but to be honest I don't think this one will be that groundbreaking. It might still be fun though.
