Shirogane no Ishi Argevollen (aka Silver Will Argevollen) Summer Anime
I was talking to a friend of mine about this upcoming Summer Anime. According to my friend, some people close to the anime industry are saying that this could be the best anime of the year! The cast is spectacular with Ryota Ohsaka, who played Sadou Maou in The Devil is a Part-TImer and is playing the lead in the upcoming Knights of Sidonia anime that comes out tomorrow, playing the lead, up and coming star Saori Onishi playing the female lead, and Sayaka Ohara, who plays Erza Scarlet in Fairy Tail playing the other female lead. When I saw the preview that came out recently, I thought it looked really good. It doesn't look like the stereotypical robot anime and the concept seems very unique. From what I've heard, the story is much more serious and thought provoking than most robot anime, but it still skillfully includes romance and humor to go along with some incredible action scenes.
The link below goes to the preview. Check it out:
As this is not a FUNimation title (yet), this topic belongs in the generic "Anime" forum.
So that's where I'm putting it.
I like the yet part of that comment. Given what I've heard about how good it will be, I certainly hope it ends up as a Funimation title.
I'm more intrigued at the ties to Nadesico. Tatsuo Sato isn't directing but I'll definitely give it a shot.
