Coming This Fall: Heavy Object

Continuing from last time we have another Mecha show, this time with a lot less colors and a lot more CG.

Heavy Object is an Action, Mecha, Sci-fi show animated by J.C. Staff, known mostly for Bakuman, Utena, and most recently, Prison School and Shimoneta, directed by Takashi Wantanabe, known mostly for Slayers (Classic), Shakugan no Shana (Otaku hit), and… Freezing (Worst of the Ecchi Harems), is an adaptation of a light novel series by Kazuma Kamachi.

The synopsis goes: “Kwenser came to the Alaskan military base to study Objects, the new weapons that have completely revolutionized war as we know it—battles are fought by soldiers controlling Objects far away from harm; however, when he starts to get close to Object pilot Milinda, will he discover the grim truth behind Heavy Objects?” (Source)


The visuals look nice, the backgrounds in particular, but the CG is a little heavy. The OST featured in the trailer sounds great, but the OP is a little generic.

That said, I have no doubts that this will be a successful anime. J.C. Staff has been on a roll lately, with both Shimoneta and Prison School received very well, at least in the US, Kazuma Kamachi also wrote A Certain Magical Index, a wildly popular franchise, which J.C. Staff also worked on, and Takashi Wantanabe has made a couple good shows.

Heavy Object will be airing October 3rd, 2015 for the Fall 2015 season.
