    Summary and full staff listing is out.

    X

    Translation:

    -The setting of the story is Kamogawa in Chiba Prefacture
    -Main protagonist's name is Kyouno(?) Madoka.
    -Madoka is a high school student. Her hometown is Kamogawa and she loves the sea there.
    -"If you ever have trouble, we'll help you out no matter what". That's the slogan of the Kamogawa Women's Jersey Club, which Madoka is the only member of.
    -However, an energetic beautiful girl and a mysterious transfer student join the club, and thus there are now 3 members.
    -It will be interesting to see what kind of story this will become from here.

    Staff:
    -Original Story/Production Cooperation: Production I.G
    -Executive Director: Sato Tatsuo
    -Director: Suzuki Toshimasa
    -Series Composition: Suga Shoutarou
    -Scenario: Morita Shigeru, Nomura Yuuichi, Oonogi Hiroshi, Machida Touko, Umehara Eiji
    -Original Character Design: Morisawa Haruyuki
    -Animation Character Design: Norita Takushige, Kobayashi Chizuru
    -Animation Production: XEBEC
    -Air Date: 2012

    I wasn't sure about the Kanji reading for Madoka's family name. Here's the original Kanji 京乃. Someone feel free to correct me if I'm wrong.

    And this sounds very noitaminA-ish. This is also around the time they announce the new series (about a month before the series that proceed them air). If my hunch is correct and this is noitaminA, then the fact that only one has been announced means that either Guilty Crown or UN-GO are indeed 2-cour. The fact that Production I.G are not doing the animation production themselves could point towards Guilty Crown.

    EDIT: After looking into the scenario writers, it's defiintely an interesting crop. Morita, Nomura, and Oonagi all worked on Gundam Seed's scenario, and all three of them have a wide breadth of experience. I'm excited to see what they create under Suga's supervision.

    The cast has been announced, but more importantly, the character designs look sci-fi-ish...

    Doesn't seem like this will strictly be a slice of life anime after all...

    Preairing has been released but the quality apparently isn't that good (heck, I would have been okay if it was the standard SD release, but it isn't even up to that level). I'll wait for the official airing.

    It feels fresh, I like it. Ack, yes, the quality isn't all that but since I'm looking for something to watch I went at it anyway. A bit surprised by the shots of panty areas but I'll get use to it. :p I like the looks and feel of the series already. It makes me think of the way Shaft pan and have particular angles from time to time.

    A bit of the girl-meets-girl in this, eh? I'm not sure what to think of the lead though. Currently she seems too chipper but I imagine there might be some troubles later on down the line. Especially when we learn about the other side. Loved how it ended though, she could grow on me. Perhaps I'll rewatch the first when it starts airing for real.

    I don't know what to say about the first episode. It's not bad, it's not good, but it just didn't get my interest. I'm giving it a few more since I want to invest time for this show since it is mecha.

    Edit:

    I really enjoyed the first episode. From the animation to the main character Kyouno, you couldn't have asked for more. And Kyouno had a pretty impressive albeit simplistic first battle .

    That german suplex kind of won me over. Madoka too. She seems like a fun character already but I just hope her apparently being good at just about almost everything doesn't become an annoyance.

    Annoying main character gets legendary robot to battle robots from space? meh. There was not a single character I even remotely liked in this episode. Not really a fan of fanservice or robotfights for the sake of kewl either. I found the episode weak. It'll hopefully get better once the story is introduced.

    Maybe the main character will grow on me as well. I didnt initially like Ohana from Hanasaku Iroha, for the same reasons as I dislike Madoka, but she grew on me through the run.

    Pretty good first impressions so far. Didn't have really high expectations, but I was pleasantly surprised with how much I liked the animation as well as the main character Kyouno. She's a fun character, and isn't one that really would end up annoying me in the long run.

    Madoka is a fun character to like, breaths some fresh air into everything. The visuals look great and the story seems like it'll be entertaining at the least. Dat suplex at the end.:datass

    Edit: Seems like theres going to be a season season in July so thats pretty cool.

    Second season in July? :hmm

    Skipping a season like Fate/Zero only probably not at the same caliber.

    Madoka wasn't too bad of a character. A bit too happy go lucky but not to the point it pisses me off and I am screaming for her to grow a brain.

    I think it was a solid first episode. I'm certainly not going to complain about the mild bits of fan service and robot fights that end with a German Suplex.

    I'm going to guess her mom was obviously a robot pilot and her cousin has been doing her best to keep her from following her mom's path or something like that.

    Yeah, I haven't looked into the reasoning but I'm guessing its the same as fate/zero. So the quality doesn't take a hit.

    That was yet another great episode. Really liking this.

    We got to see the other main girl and her cousin finally got to talk to her and immediately talk some sense into her.

    I'm guessing the blue haired girl has some issues regarding her place and what she can and cannot do.

    While I enjoyed this episode I wonder when I'll start to get tired of her catch phrase and pose? :maybe

    And I'm glad I wasn't the only one who was surprised she got a cell phone signal within the Vox, especially after she couldn't get one inside the base :lmao

    What didn't come as a surprise was seeing her sister spur her on in piloting the robot.
    I found a bit of humor in the meeting with Muginami and Madoka. Muginami certainly gives off a ditz vibe. I'm guessing there's a bit more to her personality than just that but I guess we'll find out whether that's the case later on.

    I had a problem with our main's motivation for doing this. The whole "I wont let the people that depends on me down" didnt really work for me, so I was glad when the cousin adressed this too.

    Some characters started to grow on me this ep. I've also become interested in these "enemies" and why they are such a threat to the world. The show still needs some plot-explanation though, cause these robotfights really arent that interesting to me, when I dont know the reason behind them.

    I can see where you're coming from Blastrix the lack of context is a little annoying. Though, I admit it's been an effective dangling carrot. I'm enjoying this series so far but I could use some more grounding in the world.

    I heard there's a prequel manga and tidbits about it. If it was trusted info then I think the character relationships will get a lot more interesting once the show starts making more ground on world-building.

    I do have a feeling that it's going to be alot more interesting, once it starts giving us some context. I'm even pretty sure it's going to come within the next episode or 2, but untill that, the fights remains uninteresting to me. Slim some fights down and focus on developement first and I would be all happy.

    It would be nice to have more background, though its not like it's astoundingly slow right now. I would imagine since this show has plans of going 2-cour that we'll get plenty of great material story-wise starting soon.

    No not slow at all. It's not even that big of a problem to solve :sweatdrop I just commented on it, cause the episode ended on a robotfight cliffhanger I really didnt care much about. Didnt know this show was set for 2-cour. It has potential

    Such a strangely relaxed conversation despite Madoka knowing she's been targeted. Although she stopped being chipper faster than I would have thought. She kind of reminds me of Ohana a little. Probably because she's moving forward because she's pissed. xD I do like her sister even more now though.

    Director Sato Tatsuo Eliminates Romance From Moretsu Pirates and Lagrange

    I didn't peg the series to have any real romance elements in the first place but I didn't think there was a conscious effort to eliminate it.

    I also figured it would never have any or a lot of romance, starting the series with an all girls school is never a good sign. I guess you could see something in Lagrange between the the girl and one of the "enemy" pilots but that would be a stretch.

    Heck, it's the same for Last Excile and in that show there are a lot more male characters.

    You just don't think about it when you know the main character is a girl. I haven't seen a lot of shows or any for that matter that have a female as the first introduced lead protagonist and without any noticeable male characters that have romance in them.

    Interesting that I get two shows in the same season with that kind of experimentation.

    Never really thought of the romance aspect going into either one so shouldn't be a huge deal.

    Never really expected romance elements in this series but I didn't imagine that there was an intent to purposely eliminate any romantic elements. I just imagined it was something that would occur naturally with the way the story was flowing.
