The official website for Bones' Star Driver Kagayaki no Takuto television anime series began streaming a 15-second television commercial on Friday, and it added two more 15-second commercials on Sunday. The "school robot action" story is set on a verdant island called Southern Cross, where a boy named Takuto Tsunashi arrives one night by swimming ashore. He enrolls in the island's high school academy, which happens to conceal a secret — 20 giant humanoid machines underground.
Takuya Igarashi (Soul Eater, Ouran High School Host Club) is directing the series with screenwriter Yoji Enokido (Revolutionary Girl Utena, Aim for the Top 2! Gunbuster 2), character designer Yoshiyuki Ito (Fullmetal Alchemist, Soul Eater), and composer Satoru Kousaki (The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya, Bakemonogatari). The anime will premiere in Japan on October 3.
The production company Aniplex America announced on Thursday that New York Comic Con and Anime Festival will host the the American premiere of the first English-subtitled episode on October 9. Masahiko Minami, the president and executive producer of Bones, will answer questions and sign autographs after the screening.
