    Summary and full staff listing is out.

    http://www.animeanime.biz/all/118183/

    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...

    http://yaraon.blog109.fc2.com/blog-entry-3855.html

    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.

    Seems like I was the only one who didnt really like the episode ;33 I just didnt think it offered anything new. Though it is still too early to judge it
