I’d make a “do you remember love” joke here, but I worry that it’s a bit worn out at this point.

Earlier today, Macross and Vision of Escaflowne creator Shoji Kawamori hosted a “New Project Briefing” event. At the briefing, Kawamori unveiled his latest title, Jūshinki Pandora (Heavy Divine Unit Pandora).

The project was originally teased as “The Next” earlier this year. Unlike previous works Macross and AKB0048, this series won’t feature songs.

The series is currently on track for a Spring 2018 première. Several visuals, a teaser trailer, the first cast, and several crew members were unveiled for the project. We break the details down below:

Promo Video

A 105-second teaser was released, which offers a brief glimpse of the show in action, while introducing the core cast members.

Key Visuals

Several visuals, including the logo, a key visual, a mecha shot, and a pair of landscape pieces were released. The key visual’s text reads “To survive, we formed a pact.”
