Bones' news is always good news. They seem to be working on two shows nearly every season (counting ongoing) lately, so I was wondering when they'd announce their spring pick, which is when their fabulous Star Driver ends.

I take it it's not an adaptation? Can't find anything about it.

Towa no Kuon...as near as I can tell, that means "Eternal Eternity" or "Perpetual Eternity" or "Immortal Eternity." Near-redundancy sounds cool...?

Truly a "superteam", I hope they can delivery.

Also, is this an TV series? Sounds more like an OVA...

Hope it's better than their last several shows. Xamd was pretty good though until the final part.

Star Driver & Xamd are both great..Bones can do no wrong period.
This is going to be interesting..2011 looks like another fantastic year for Bones.

Bones is just an animation company. They generally have no say over the script.

Right... let's take a look at shows "animated" by Shaft.

Only when they do work-for-hire, as opposed to original projects. Most of the work we know them for are original projects.

I've seen quite a few Bones shows that I thought were pretty crappy so I'm not going to prejudge based on the fact that its them alone. That is however a very impressive staff so this is definitely something I,m going to keep my eye on.

Aw man, this project sounds very interesting. Makes it all the more tragic that Iida won't be around to direct it though.
