    I can't remember a season with so many highly profile shows, new and sequels. Spring really looks amazing.

    And I guess in July we will get news that it'll air in January. I'm starting to think that this will never air...

    There was never an official announcement it would air in January. Momoiro Clover Z, who will perform the OP, said it would air this winter at a Sailor Moon live event last August. This was never confirmed by Toei or Naoko. It really was originally supposed to air last summer. This announcement is official.

    Producer Umezawa Atsutoshi has also confirmed that Sailor Moon 2014 will not be a remake of the original anime. They will be adapting the original manga, "starting from scratch again".

    New Mahouka key art. They appear to be introducing the leads, and two of the supporting characters.



    From left to right: Shiba Tatsuya, Shiba Miyuki, and Saijou Leonhart (Leo). Tatsuya and Miyuki are the main characters. The story is told from Tatsuya's perspective. Tatsuya and Leo are "Course 2" students, and classmates. Miyuki is Tatsuya's sister, a Course 1 student, and first year class representative.



    From left: Chiba Erika, with the Shiba siblings. Erika is also a Course Two student, a classmate and friend of Tatsuya.

    The story summary at most sites are horribly inadequate. Here is my own summary, taken from chapter one of the novel:

    Quote Quote:
    In Mahouka, there are nine magic high schools, each associated with a Magic University. Tatsuya and Miyuki are freshman at First Magic High School, in Tokyo. First Magic High School has 200 enrolled students at all time. Students are divided into two courses, based on the practical skills portion of their entrance exam. Higher scores enter as Course 1 students, lower scores as Course 2. The uniforms of Course 1 students are embroidered with the schools flower emblem. The flower is left off of the uniforms for Course 2. Because of this Course 1 students are referred to as "Blooms", Course 2 are derisively referred to as "Weeds". Officially it is against school rules to call Course 2 students Weeds, but it is common among students. Course 2 students act as reserves, replacing any Course 1 students who drop out. Course work and access to facilities for Course 1 and 2 are the same. The main difference is that Course 2 students are not entitled to personal instruction in practical magical skills. That is partially why Course 2 students are called weeds, they are viewed as stealing valuable educational resources from Course 1 students.

    In the Mahouka world, super powers do not work like they do in most manga and light novel. Magic is not treated like a supernatural ability, but a technical skill, learned in high school and college. Technology plays a major role in wielding magic. Engineering and programming are critical to Mahouka. Speed and efficiency of magic are more important in the story than power levels, innate ability, and strength.
    ---------- Post added at 10:54 AM ---------- Previous post was at 10:42 AM ----------

    This pics are very reassuring. The anime art is derived directly from the light novel, without any alterations. The manga version derped the art, giving characters bigger eyes, and softer features.

    That CAD in the second one is much smaller than I thought, otherwise, the character artists is doing an excellent job making it look as stunning as some of the pages did in the LN. And that Leo is to die for. I like the poses they have going on and the art looks good and the small snippet of visual effects we can see. It may definitely deliver on being a faithful anime.

    I looked for Tatsuya´s seiyuu to get a grasp how he will sound like. To be honest, i expected a bit deeper voice but considering the range Nakamura seem to have shown, he could do Tatsuya justice.

    It looks like the goofed up a little in the second pic. His CAD is the proper size in the first pic, comparable to the cover of volume one. The CAD in the second pic doesn't look quite right.

    Nakamura is famous. I nominated him for best male seiyuu. He played Kyousuke in Oreimo, Oreki in Hyouka, and Tomoya in Clannad. He's the ideal seiyuu for Tatsuya. Oreki and Tomoya are very similar characters to Tatsuya. Outwardly cold and aloof, but deep down a caring, kind people, and loyal almost to a fault. The main difference is that this is an action series, so Tatsuya does not feign apathy like Oreki and Tomoya. Nakamura is the one seiyuu guaranteed to correctly play the role correctly, without trying to slip emotion into the character. That would be a disaster, the one way the anime could really ruin the story.

    The manga is not a good basis for judging Mahouka. They made a lot of changes to the mood, and tone, of the novels, in addition to messing up the art.

    I know that he played those roles but besides Tomoya, meaning Clannad, i have not seen him in anything, so only judging from that and the compilation, he could do it well i guess, though Tatsuya should be a hard role, switching from his "cold and emotionless interior" to the way he gives himself to other people.

    I never read the manga, read the first 7? volumes of the novel a long time ago, so long in fact that i can´t remember how far i actually got with the story.

    Nakamura is pretty much the ideal Tatsuya. It's the type of lead role he typically plays. I can't imagine anyone else, no matter how good, playing him. Miyuki's sieuu, Hayami Saori, is also perfect for the part. She is also one of my favorites, one of my nominations for female seiyuu.

    I read the news recently too. Can't help wondering how far they'll take things through since in my opinion the manga doesn't really offer much up to this point in terms of plot twists to turn into a decent 12-episode anime. We'll see.

    Finally, indeed. The artwork of the anime will be interesting to check, since I'm curious to see how they combine today's technology with the classical artwork Sailor Moon has. I'm slightly happy it's starting from scratch, not continuing else where, although I feel somehow tired because we're back to square one with all that noisy stuff in the beginning of the series. Oh, well. XD

    For Sailor Moon, I mostly interested if it will air on Japanese TV, or niconico only. I never watched the original.
