The official website has gotten seriously updated!http://www.star-driver.net/
And now with a new official preview art on the homepage.
Now, looking at this new art, I thought this:
1. Colorful shiny glimmers are looking A LOT like TTGL colorful shiny glimmers. (Glimmers shown near the assumed waistline of Tauburn.)
2. That robot's design. ... What... ? XDDD I'm most perturbed by the arms, honestly. They're huge. o-o
3. Tauburn is holding these colorful glimmers? ... Ok that would be totally badass if they were his weapons .
4. Main character looks different, whyyy. xD I think the character designs are looking a bit too generic for my tastes.
5. A VERY BIG positive to this anime judging from that picture is the colors. This anime looks like its really varied in color, and I'm gonna love that!~
Alright, onto Staff and Cast!

You can also check out the other mecha that'll be involved in the show on the Staff & Cast page. Well, it basically links to the Mechanics page. ... So lets get to Mechanics! =D xD
Ohhhh, the huge things were his thighs/hips, not his arms. His arms are quite skinny, actually. xD Hm... actually from a full view, I don't mind his design. Not bad at all. =3 I wonder what the smoke-type substance atop the crown of his head will represent.
Mecha #2 ('guess I'll refer to him as Banishing Age, since thats the only English word on his page.)http://www.star-driver.net/mechanic/02.html
... Nope, don't like it. At all. I'm hoping he'll be a much cooler mech when he gets screentime. I just really hate his design. XD Though I expect he can fire a great series of missiles at one time, so he gets 1 point for that.
Mecha #3 (Filament, I guess)http://www.star-driver.net/mechanic/03.html
Mm... not amazing... I do like the eyes in the middle of the chest there. Everything else is sort of meh.
Mecha #4 (Another Filament, nevermind XD)http://www.star-driver.net/mechanic/04.html
Besides the fact that the first thought that came to my mind when seeing him was, 'Lol pink', I think this one's my second favorite of the bunch. 'Course there haven't been that many good ones.. XD
Mecha #5 (Adult Bank)http://www.star-driver.net/mechanic/05.html
Nevermind, this guy is my new second favorite. I like this one a lot. I suspect epic Samurai skills to ensue from him.
Alrighty, what else... well we can\t read Story, as its a picture. Lets try characters.
... I like his hair. Not sure why. XD And I like his white outfit with the crazy flame hair. Maybe minus the star. He looks pretty awesomesauce in that outfit, though.
I hope she's a little sister and not a love interest. Not only does she looks really weird with Takuto if coupled, but god she looks YOUNG. Eh, I'm not over the moon with her design.
Hee. I think I'm gonna really like this guy. XD Love, love, love his hair.
Lol, her badass outfit has the Anemone-esque TheEND backing to it. xD But that aside... meh. Just a big-chested nobody to me. However, I do really like her mask.
(Her drill will pierce the heave-SHOT-) xD
But nah, don't like her. Or her second outfit. Looks like the lolita of the bunch.
Just okay. I don't like her second outfit very much because of the tight-to-skin'ness and the.. uh.. lace? xD
Nevermind, another lolita arrives. Don't like her very much either.
She looks to be a strong-willed character. I think I'll like her a lot!
GEORGE?! XDD Ok, not only is he lols-worthy for the only English name in this character roster, but POOFY PANTS and ABS?! =D XD I think I'm going to like him very much. He won't be badass, just amazingly lols-worthy. XDD
I'mma like this guy a lot too. 8D He appears to be in league with George as they have similar outfits.
I think I'll like the guys more than the girls. xD;
And then everything else is 'Coming Soon.' Personally I'm genuinely interested in the upcoming trailer for the series.
