An unexpected, but pleasant surprise. I already like the aesthetics just from this one image. Also, you may want to know that Saeki Shouji storyboarded a lot of 2017 Sangatsu no Lion episodes, according to anidb

He storyboarded two episodes of Fate/EXTRA Last Encore as well. Saeki has done freelance work for other studios before, but I believe this will be the first non-Gainax show directed by him. It's also very rare for a SHAFT show not to have Akiyuki Simbo credited as chief director.

yeah, the best arc of the show. And the most confusing. I wonder if we'll see Shinbou credited as animation supervisor, like in magia record

Nan Yaegashi is original character designer, I believe, but for this anime, but Mieko Hosoi will work on designs for this anime.

As for anime itself, dunno, nice thighs on these girls, but I have a feeling I have seen that picture billions of times so far - two girls, in front cute, short-haired innocent looking shorty, and behind her long-dark-haired mysterious vibes serious girl. Sad

Could be fun.

This article somewhat misleading IMO - the presented character designs aren't related to anime. This is how characters would look like in actual anime.

Those look... exactly the same as the designs in the article, besides a few very subtle differences. Unless you meant the promo image, with way too much detail for animation.

Have to say, this both looks and sounds like a bland battling-girls affair loosely inspired by Madoka (probably why Shaft picked it up). "Battles waged by beautiful girls with weapons" isn't exactly an inspired concept, and it's literally based on a series of dolls. But I guess we'll see.

This is good and the SK artist makes it better. We need more anime like this.

It's certainly vague enough a concept to play with - it could go either way. The latest kinda-Madoka-like show here I can think of was Granbelm, and that was pretty good, so hey, why not, I guess? Interested in seeing who the writers are, anyway.

Also...

...lol. HUUUUUGE!!

Nope, those character designs are absolutely different - Yaegashi Nan has a distinct art style that everyone who knows Senran Kagura could instantly recognize, while an actual anime would have much more generic character design.

Finally Shaft is doing something, and something new, and it's a toy commercial. But it's a toy that was previously used to model Little Armory kits, before LA had its own figma... hmm...

I mean, you can still tell that the "for animation" character designs are based off Yaegashi's artwork/original designs, just like the anime character designs for SK are obviously based off his designs, and Madoka character designs are obviously based off Aoki Ume's art.

On a similar note, it's pretty crazy to see so many characters drawn by Yaegashi, where most have totally reasonably sized chests.

I won't deny it, but still - he's not a character designer for this anime. My point is: why not include an anime character designs, so people would have a better idea how characters would look like?
