Xuccess Heaven Project To Be Revealed On 3/17/2015

A teaser trailer aired which made a bold statement saying that its goal was to change the common expectations of anime.  It’s for an anime named Xuccess Heaven Project: Neo Tokyo School Success Battle.  The anime already signed some heavy hitters for their voice acting cast including Mamoru Miyano (Okabe Rintarou from Steins;Gate, Gourmet from Tokyo Ghoul, and Takuto from Star Driver) as well as Jun Fukuyama (Naruto, Bleach, 07-Ghost, Ao no Exorcist, Busou Renkin, RockmanEXE, Code Geass, and about a million other animes).

Judging by the description and the casting, there seem to be many colored academies, such as the Green Academy and Black Academy, for example.  Also, given the title, this seems to be a battle anime between each of the academies.  With so many of these kind of animes being done before, the fact that they are claiming they will change people’s expectations is a pretty bold statement.
