Just want cool mecha, esp the transforming variety; if the story turns out to be lackluster, I won't feel bad for skipping it, but if the inevitable toys turn out well, then that's a good thing.

Juushinki Pandora, a 26 episode anime directed by Shoji Kawamori (of Macross fame), produced by Satelight in colaboration with Xiamen Skyloong Media will be airing on Spring 2018.

"A outcast scientist were living together with his 'sister', until one day, a quantum experiment went wrong, unleashing Dragons and Biomechanical-lifeforms from other dimensions into our world......"




Introduction from the official website in Japanese:



From Google Translate:

On 2031, the day that "Xianglong Crisis" occurred, Leon Lau was in the very center. Next-generation energy equipment "quantum reactor" researched and developed as a substitute for the exhausted environmental resource runaway it exploded with dispersing unknown energy. As a result, the environment of the world suddenly changed. Biological and machinery other than mankind has evolved independently, a unique evolutionary organism that was born "BRAI". Humanity has been chased to the point of extinction for its power.

Seven years after "Xianglong Crisis", Leon was in the wilderness on the edge of the absolute defense city Neo Xianglong. While co-living with Chloe Lau who had "family contract", he was doing his own research to counter B.R.A.I. Chewy Chloe with a slim Leon. Living everyday as if to forget the past, but the threat was pressing steadily.

...why is "sister" in scare quotes? Typical Japanese creative use of Latin punctuation, or typical Japanese looseness towards the Westermarck effect?

In the trailer he doesn't reffer her as his sister, but she talks about "Family" or something like that.

But the "imoto" feeling is so strong... :D

Well, he cut out of Delta halfway through, so there’s precedent for that...

Does this explain why Delta turned into a mess halfway thru the series?

This looks promising, but so did delta.

Honestly, I think that Kawamori-san cut out of Delta because the studio wouldn't listen to his ideas. They should have come to a better arrangement, like doing an OVA of his original idea, and then doing Delta, or vice versa.

Regular Forbes readers must squint quizzically every time their business news is interrupted by this weird show called Muh-cross.

I wonder if Forbes knows what their doing.

Anime is NOT cool :)

I'm not too confident that this will be any good. Satelight hasn't done anything remotely top notch in years. Is there a quality screenwriter attached to this project? Will the characters have more that paper thin characterizations? A congruent plot?

I'll check it out, but won't hold my breath.
