Fall season is going to have some really nasty competition! Cool

Man, that "magical girl transformation" scene gave me Re: Cutie Honey flashbacks. Hooray for campy fanservice!

Transformation is blatant fan service, but besides that everything looks good!

Seems like way too much yuri.

I'll go back to watching UtaPri and Free.

spoiler[btw i'm a gril and weigh 350 lbs]

But seriously, I really hated this show from the trailers, but this PV makes it look a bit better! Guess the worst show of fall season for me will be KnK and not KLK.
This seasons KKK is better though.

I got goosebumps with the seito kaichou´s intro. Looking epic, seem to be promising near Gurren Lagan epicness.

Yet, I aint so happy with that cheerful loli, seem not fitting here, but we will see.

With more class than the garbage that piles up every season its seems. Still, I mean, look at Gurren lagann, it had lots of -ok- fanservice too.

It worked in Gurren Lagann because that was Yoko's only outfit, however this here is a transformation outfit it seems unnecessary, but it's not to stop me from watching the series though.

Gurren Lagan levels of epic could also be used to create a really good parody. Probably won't be, though.

Maybe it'll be unintentionally funny.
A man can dream...

Definitely gives off a Gurren Lagann look and feel, which I wholeheartedly approve of. The designs are quite nice, and I find the use of fanservice here more humorous than arousing (which is totally okay). The animation is very fast and kinetic, something I haven't seen since (you guessed it) Gurren Lagann.

Really, this looks to be one of the best shows of the year so far. Only time will tell whether or not it will live up to the hype, but all signs point towards a positive outcome. Bring it on, TRIGGER!

Looks very good, probably going to be the only anime I watch this season.

But her outfit does look dumb.

These trailers and promos have been great, but I'm hoping that this show actually lives up to the HUGE hype that's been thrust upon it.

Also, the "freedom that is fear" thing reminded me of 1984 a lot:

"WAR IS PEACE. FREEDOM IS SLAVERY. IGNORANCE IS STRENGTH."

Don't know if this was intentional or not, but if it is, that's great

What huge hype?

animenewsnetwork.com/interest/2013-09-04/biglobe-poll/most-anticipated-fall-2013-anime

I mean sure, its got some hype, but lets not kid ourselves about it being another SAO or AoT in terms of hype or anything.

I'm so excited!! I'm doing the worm with excitement!!! This is just everything I love about anime and cartoons: tough and cute girls being cool and beating stuff up, over the top animation, cartoony funny faces, weird-looking bad guys, handsome boys, bright colors... I am the happiest of campers! Between this and Kyousogiga, the Fall season is spoiling me rotten!

I'm going to be watching this for sure, because it sounds interesting, but I really don't like the character designs...

Okay, so nobody else is getting nothing but 3 minutes of black screen? Any ideas what's wrong? I have scriptblocker, but I've allowed enough scripts that it should be playing. Is it a region issue?
