Kyōkai Senki anime project

It seems that Sunrise Beyond is making a new anime this fall.

Story is, Japan has been partitioned into four, one guy finds an AMAIM mech named Kyobu, and uses it to defeat the occupation. Another guy is also piloting an AMAIM to avenge his parents' death and might be either allied or a rival to the Kyobu.

Nobuyoshi Habara will direct the story, Noboru Kimura will pen it.

Looks kinda interesting

feels like a mish mash of Geass and Shinkalion, story and character designs respectively. and the main mech'
kinda head looks like Made in Abyys' Bondrewd.

Currently it's slated for a Fall 2021 release.

I love the difference in the Chinese and English mecha community comments.
Most of the comments about this show in Chinese are talking about how ugly the design is and Bandai should just go back to making Gundam(as a sarcasm)
I personally also don't find this face to be cool looking and I particularly don't like the face of it in the anime version but don't think it is as bad as to the point of ugly. (The model version is better somehow). But I kinda like the leg design.

Personally, I would give it a chance, looks like Japan has been partitioned in the map, and it strongly reminded me of this...

Basically, Russia, the United States, China, and Oceania (Australia-India) partitioned it.

It also reminded me a bit of the early design of Gundam G-Self, with the head kinda having the shape of Catsith's.

I quite like the looks of the mecha action, drawn mecha animation is becoming more and more of a rarity.

Also, for the record, this is the Official Website.

Bringing this back up because Bandai Spirits just released the A-part of Episode 1 for an advanced screening, and confirming an October 4 start date.

A synopsis of Episode 1 has been posted as well (though it's nothing we don't already know):
Episode 1.
In the mid-21st century, Japan has been divided and ruled by four economic blocs. Amou Shiiba, a young boy born in a subjugated Japan, spends his days in depression, until one day he meets Gai, an autonomous thinking AI that had been abandoned in the grass.
EDIT: Adding the Character and I-Les profiles:

Shiiba Amou - A 16-year-old who is not good at socializing. His hobby is collecting parts. Spends his days depressed, but his world changes when he meets the autonomous thinking AI "Gai".

Gai - As an I-LeS (Autonomous Thinking AI), an AI with an ego, is manly and sometimes wild. He and Amou are good partners, both in battle and in their personal lives.

Tezuka Gashin - A 16-year-old member of the Resistance. He is calm and blunt. He is in pursuit of the mysterious "Ghost," the avenger of his father.

Kei - An I-LeS with the same development history as Gai, it inherited data from the tactical AI used by Tetsuka's father. Her personality is calm and she has a female voice.

Shishiba Shion - A 16-year-old with a mature personality. Her special skill is the naginata. Following in the footsteps of her grandfather, who was a potter, she dreams of reviving Himeno-yaki, a pottery style that was abandoned after the invasion.

Nayuta - A self-proclaimed Italian gentleman, the I-LeS calls himself Angelo. He may sound frivolous, but he is highly loyal to his partner, Shion.
Well, I guess I'm a nobody...

Certainly looks interesting, I'll check it out.

This isn't the first time Sunrise has put out an anime for Robot Spirit / Tamashii Nation is it?
