Well, I'm not a big fan of the character designs, but damn that voice cast is amazing. Uchiyama and Matsuoka as the leads? Yes please.

Can't wait. I'm ready for some robot action.

I like the theme music in the trailer too.

If you ever thought that VVV was a little gay... well... here's Buddy Complex to blow that one out of the water. Sunrise's really going for the crowd, aren't they?

Not I have anything against Mecha shows. However....Woah, isn't bit too similar to Valvrave the Liberator? Coming off the heels of other one?

I means aide not sucking the memories of the pilot of the head and being on the oceans instead of land. It seems to be similar in alot ways to Valvrave.

What the heck.

Too much of this mecha bulls#hit with an extremely boring & typical shounen male lead.

Man the prejudice against mecha these days in the community is absolutely brutal and pretty much the communities loss IMO. It's bad enough people literally seem to see the flimsiest of comparisons at face value, they'll also have the most negative revolted seeming reaction possible too.

It's like everybody is now a self-described expert on mecha anime despite most having absolutely no bloody idea what they are talking about most of the time. Laughing Yes this show is exactly like Valvrave and the gayest shittiest thing ever because both have male co-leads that pilot giant robots. Nope, don't even have too watch it or anything, you can clearly tell just by looking at it cause all mecha anime are exactly the same with no differences whatsoever. Rolling Eyes

Yes clearly this is the problem plaguing the anime scene right now and everything would be so much better if those stupid gay mecha toy show commercials all just went away. Jesus christ...like do you people look at the things you are posting or do you really just not care how ridiculous you types look sometimes. So bloody ignorant.

It's a "traditional robot action" anime by sunrise, so no its not going to use gimmicks or flashy art to get you to watch it. It's going to focus more on action scenes, most likely. Just like the recent Majestic Prince, which had some great fight scenes but also got flak for being to cliche. Too bad for the people who missed out on it...I thought it was great

I love how you guys are like "Aw crap, another gay robot show" and meanwhile I'm sitting here shipping Bizon over there with A-drei from Valvrave (because look who the voice actor is!)

Also those uniforms for Bizon's squad. Wow, those are great.

Everybody loved Majestic Prince, and Build Fighter is well received.

I like how you took Pangea's comment, blew it out of proportion and then used the good old "you people" and "so ignorant" phrases to strengthen.. whatever it is you're trying to say.
When someone says that they're tired of mecha having boring and typical shounen male leads, they're not saying that it's a "problem plaguing the anime scene right now and everything would be so much better if those stupid gay mecha toy show commercials all just went away".
Stop putting words in peoples mouths.

Also, I agree with Pangea.
There needs to be more mecha series with female leads.

The uniform designs look like a cross of Gundam and Code Geass uniforms. One of the characters uniform especially looks like its from Geass.

The story will revolve around the friendship and coming-of-age of two boys


Reminds me of Kira and Athrun relationship from Gundam SEED and I hate that show and its protagonist so I will be skipping this one.

Finally someone here that understands me! thanks Jet.

It's like the producers are too afraid to stray away from this apparently "safe concept" they have with all these shounen animes.

Hmm what main character should we have in this mecha?
I don't know.. oh I know, lets go with shounen "type 67" or something.

only in anime where 16-year-olds get opportunities in those important positions. I wish US would get some 16-18 years old kids to handle our nuclear weapons.

Why though? Like what difference does it make? What should matter is if the show and cast overall is good or not, not the gender of the main focus character. If that's all that matter you can check out Sora Kake Girl, Rinne no Lagrange, Diebuster, Infinite Stratos, Strike Witches, Sky Girls etc, but I wouldn't really classify any of them other than Diebuster as particularly great mecha/sci-fi anime.

I seriously don't know why some people are so fixated on this idea, it's not the first time I've seen it but I don't know why it's so bloody important considering just how many anime out there are kind of dominated by female cast members any way. This recent wave of butthurt over anything deemed too "shonen" I'm seeing from the internet is also really bizarre. Where do people get these focus points that they cling to so mightily. It's like the laziest way of pigeonholing stuff and writing it off without even thinking about it too hard. Like oh this looks too shonen, must mean it'll be shit. There's just something really hipster about it all.

Straight white male thinks that its not necessary to have more female protagonists.

Details at 11.

(also this show looks sooooo bland and uninteresting. Maybe I'll manage to care when it shows up in SRW. Until then, meh)

Nooooooo! It's not believable. Laughing

(Besides, you'd just get Joshua on the other line wanting to play a game.)
