Idolm@ster Xenoglossia looks kinda good!

Idolmaster Xenoglossia

Gundam Otome

I had somewhat dreaded this anime at first, since it’s by Sunrise, and being Sunrise, they somehow spinned in mecha in to a series where the original concept was to build the career of pop idol, based on 10 initial choices give to you. Can you say, “LOLMECHA”?

But well, the first episode isn’t that bad really, and it was far from my original expectation of “singing and dancing” mecha, but instead the girls seem to be part of an asteroid clean-up/earth protection team. It feels already a lot like Mai Hime/Mai Otome already, but of course this is Sunrise and it is being produced by the same team members.

But I’ll be honest here about the reason why I already like this show…

Idolmaster Xenoglossia

Yukari Tamura, in a tomboyish role. Period. God damned, I missed that aspect of her voice. Of course it also doesn’t help that Mai Nakahara, Hocchan and Noto-sama are playing main roles as well.

    Even the character feels like those in Mai Otome: the one on the scan seems to have little ants antenna xD

    Lovedol meets Planetes? heh, kidding. I enjoyed ep 1 very much too. The premise do not unravel in just one ep and the character interactions – very Mai HiME. Although I have to admit i cringed at scene of the white loli eating the popsicle…. there goes my pure/honourable license XD

    You had a “pure and honorable” license, Stripey? Wow, first time of me hearing that.

    Remember, you can’t spell “loli” without “lol” XD.

    Singing and Dancing mecha would be so so great I can’t describe it.. and let’s just hope this turns out more HiME than OtOME

    OMG I am having glazed vision. Because the 4th girl from the left has Shiori’s (form Kanon) haristyle and look on her face. O.o

    Hey. They have a lot of good seiyuus on it: Ami Koshimizu, Mikako Takahashi, Yukana, Mamiko Noto, Eri Kitamura. Ha! (all from Simoun). Plus I liked Yukari Tamura’s tsundere character. ^_^
