Found on the official Voltron store:
I have already ordered two.
Star Driver, from Studio Bones, has everything required to be legendary. Giant robots? Check. Preposterous posturing? Check. Good animation and character designs? Check. A sense of humor about itself and a good feel for the ridiculous? Check and check.
Its main character calls himself the “Ginga Bishounen” (Galactic Prettyboy). How can this possibly go wrong?
Over at the Marvel Anime page for the upcoming Iron Man series, Marvel has posted a trio of trailers for everyone’s favorite alcoholic superhero. They’re brief and don’t show much of the animation, but it’s pretty telling to see how stilted the CG is. I’m still looking forward to it to see if they get the spirit of Tony Stark right; however, I would advise caution. The last time Iron Man got a cartoon, it wasn’t pretty.
We’ll find out for certain when the fall anime season starts.
Well, we have our first look at the new Super Robot Wars OG series ready, and I’m cautiously optimistic. While it’s pretty awesome seeing the Alt Eisen and the Weissritter in action again, the character designs are pretty lackluster.
I have low expectations Super Robot Wars anime based on how badly Divine Wars went, so it won’t take much for me to be happy with this show. It looks like it will have robots blowing up other robots, and I think that may be good enough for me. Super Robot Wars OG ~The Inspector~ starts airing in most Japanese markets on October 1.
Macross fans who’ve been waiting for a year to hear about the second Macross Frontier movie now have a title and release date to hang their hat on. At last weekend’s Gira Summer Carnival fan event in Yokohama, Japan, the fans learned that Sayonara no Tsubasa (“Wings of Farewell”) will see a February 26th, 2011 release.
In the meantime, just like the release of the Universal Bunny album preceded the first movie, there will be a music video collection (a la Gurren Lagann Parallel Works) released on December 15 of this year. The DVD will collect footage from the TV series, add in some movie footage, and sprinkle in some original animation to create a new set of audio-visual feasts for fans to drool on.
Comic Market 78 came and went with a great deal of fanfare last weekend, and animation studios didn’t miss the opportunity to tease hundreds of thousands of fans with their upcoming shows. If you’re willing to endure the sound being drowned out by the buzz of a convention floor, hit the jump and check out previews for highly anticipated shows like To Aru Majutsu no Index II and Kami Nomizo Shiru Sekai, as well as quirky dark horses like Shinryaku Ika Musume and S&M comedy MM!
