found it on 2chan’s mecha board. I’m quite curious myself, big N doesn’t do designs outside FSS that often.

Looks like it's from Newtype. I haven't a clue what "GTM" is, though.

The dear boy is definitely up to something - I wonder if it's gonna be a comic or an anime project?

Probably a new anime project. Nagano's pretty committed to FSS for a while now, so I doubt he's gonna start a new manga project anytime soon.

Don't forget, he did star Edit! for the purpose of not only promoting his and his wifes careers, but for the purpose of creating new animations as well....

As long as we're guessing I'll add mine. The illustration is quite detailed so I'm guessing it's an illustration for a novel. Maybe more Schell Bullet novels?

What ?! Who cares about anime god dammit ! More FSS FFS ! :P
I'm joking :wink:

Interesting, a bit weird though, it has really big legs. Seems quite detailed for being animated. And it has no toe joints, I don't get it why Nagano draws MH without toes.

Someone needs to have words with Nagano regarding the fact that a good FSS anime wouldn't go unnoticed or unappreciated. 8)

I should add, so long as it doesn't stop him working on FSS manga. 8)

the character design and of course the mech seems to be lifted straight out of FSS. alhtough the mech design is a step backward with the ridiculous proportion.

let's hope it's good, although i'd prefer if he just animated FSS.

-Storyline-
Cover the war beaten path with flowers.
May the fields stained with blood and hatred be covered with seeds and the errors of humans be overgrown with flowers.

Utame* of Flowers, Belin Angeli (*Utame: Lady of Poems)

The place is Carmine planet, a colonized planet nicknamed The Madder* Fields. (*Madder: rubia cordifolia, a vine plant. Roots used to make red dye)

Colonial government of the Planetary Union subject the people to forced labor and exploit the natural resources of this small planet.
The only thing that sustains the people is their belief in the Utame, special women that are only born on this planet over the generations.
Utame inherit the memories of her predecessors and use the accumulated knowledge and experience to unite the tribes and nations.
Her aim is to use her words to lead the people to be virtuous.

When the 16 year old Beline, the newly born Utame, sets out for her Journey* to the capital city Hari, the 3rd prince of military empire Donaw, Trihalton accompanies her as guardian. (*exact word is 'the Journey of Virtue)
What should be a journey of peace is marred by the icon of violence, a prince of a military empire.
The company of two people on the polar opposite of beliefs and personal character was flawed from the beginning.
What perrils would the path to the capital reveal...

-What is GTM?-

Humanoid war robots of unimaginable combat abilities, Gothicmades stand 19 meters tall, have powers exceeding 100 trillion hp and electronic swing joints 'Twin Swing' enable the GTMs astonishing acrobatic movements.
GTMs can only be piloted by specialized human race called 'War Casters'.
Normal people witnessing GTM battle wouldn't even be able to see what is going on because they move faster than human perception.

Due to near unlimited energy, GTMs may fight until the War Caster pilot collapses from exhaustion.
The final weapon Buster Launcher powered by Hamoid Engine is capable of rendering a planet in to nothingness.

GTM is a non-CG animation that will be produced without using CG at all and Mamoru Nagano himself taking on the task of base art production.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Blah blah blah....
Does Nagano have ANY new ideas since L Gaim? :roll:

Dang. It's starting to sound like "FSS Lite."

And what's wrong with CG? Recent advances like cell shading make CG and cell animation blend quite nicely. Ah well, CG isn't required to make good-looking animation.

I'll give GTM a try - even though it does sound a lot like FSS warmed over.
