Plot: The story is set in the year 311 of the Orbital Calendar, when humanity has migrated to countless colony clusters in space. A space colony girl named Akiha Shishidō encounters a malevolent artificial intelligence named Leopard that has been installed on a colony. Akiha is joined by an Inter-Colony Police officer named Itsuki Kannagi, a taciturn young girl named Honoka Kawai, and a robot named Imoko “Imo-chan” Shishidō


My thoughts: Just from the preview I couldn’t tell much about this anime, but I’m still gonna watch it.  Mainly because of the storyline and the character’s design (it really grabbed my attention for some reason).

Some Image of this anime that I thought the viewers might enjoy.

    I will be catching this one as well, and it is nice to see Saito Momoko come back, though I hardly thought she was good back in Solty Rei.

    Reminds me of pre-OYW Zeon tactics, but without all that somber death and destruction theme.
