Aldnoah.Zero



Aldnoah.Zero is a new mecha series currently being broadcast over in Japan, and hosted online at sites like Crunchyroll and Daisuki:

The Knights of Mars fall from the skies. Spurring on their giants made of steel. In order to eradicate the humans of Earth. This is ALDNOAH.ZERO. Creators of overwhelming power have gathered to make this epic tale a reality. Having once worked on the TV anime series Fate/Zero, Gen Urobuchi, writer of supreme skill who plumbs the deepest recesses of the mind; Ei Aoki, who exceeds his viewers' expectations by light years with his visual expressions that are both gorgeous and audacious, enter the ring once more. Animation production will be by A-1 Pictures, as well as TROYCA, which Aoki himself is involved with. In addition, Takako Shimura is also on board as original character designer. The delicate bearing of her characters painfully depicts people living through an interplanetary war. Plus, the mecha designs are overseen by cutting-edge I-IV. As for the music, Hiroyuki Sawano will add an air of profundity. What they are creating is striking action, world-building where no detail has been overlooked, and an almost palpable sense of the terror of war, and personal drama resulting from the intertwining of genuine, earnest emotion. This will be an utterly new robot anime that both sticks to the tried-and-true, yet also is unlike anything seen before. ALDNOAH.ZERO. This show is declaring war on us humans of Earth. You must go out and meet it.
Is anyone here following it so far?

(Since the first three eps are out, I'd recommend anyone with an interest in the show try all three at once - and to watch to the very end of the third episode.)

I have it on my Crunchyroll queue, but I haven't watched it yet. It does look interesting.

These three episodes however are not representative of the show as a whole since the writer of the first three episodes, Gen Urobuchi, reportedly left afterwards over creative disagreements with the head director of the show who had him replaced with another well less known and less skilled writer.

Outlaw Star and Planetes was more my cup of tea.

Less robots--less action figures--more spacecraft.

I like that press release though. "Gen Urobuchi, writer of supreme skill who plumbs the deepest recesses of the mind; Ei Aoki, who exceeds his viewers' expectations by light years with his visual expressions that are both gorgeous and audacious". Definitely sound like creators of overwhelming power.
