Mecha animes fans rejoice the amazing upcoming season, looks like this Spring is packed with your favorite genre. I counted three series upcoming next month, and so far two of them look promising and the third’s plot isn’t bad either. I’ve talked before about Valvrave the Liberator which a collaboration between Bandai and Sunrise, two giants in the industry working together in this mecha series.
Valvrave has a very strong competitor which is Gargantia on the Verdurous Planet and it intrigues me the most for so many reasons. First Production I.G will produce it, second Murata Kazuya (Fullmetal Alchemist: The Sacred Star of Milos) will handle the direction and the scriptwriter will be Urobuchi Gen (Madoka Magica, Fate/Zero).
The last one on the list is Ginga Kikoutai Majestic Prince, the most catchy thing in this one is the mecha designs, they do look great. The director of the series is Keitaro Motonaga (Jormungand), Character Designs is Hisashi Hirai (Gundam SEED), Series Composition/Script: Reiko Yoshida (K-On!, Saint Seiya Omega), and Production: Dogakobo (YuruYuri, Another) and Orange.
