The latest one to get some new attention if Aldnoah Zero, which comes from Gen Urobochi of Madoka Magica and Psycho-Pass fame. The summer series had some new information revealed over the weekend at AnimeJapan 2014 as well as the first promotional video for the series. Set up at A-1 Pictures and TROYCA, the series is set to be directed by Ei Aoki with Takako Shimura handling the character designs while Kenji Teraoka will be dealing with the mecha designs.
