New Captain Earth PV shows up


It looks neat, I guess!

BONES is returning this spring with a new original series: Captain Earth. The name is a little silly, but it has some of BONES great staff behind it -- most of them folks from Star Driver. Now, I covered Star Driver way back when it first came out, and it had some fantastic art and animation, but one of the most bland and repetitive stories I had encountered. So while it's cool that director Takuya Igarashi and writer Yoji Enokido are joining forces again, I can't help but worry that it'll flop narrative-wise the way Star Driver did.

The trailer looks pretty solid though, and even if I'm not sold on the character designs (well-drawn but uninspired), I do like the music, which gives me echoes of Star Driver's wonderful soundtrack. I'll probably check it out when it starts next season, if only to appreciate BONES's animation skills.

Anyone here hyped for Captain Planet, er, I mean... Captain Earth?
