Looks like Lupin transported back to the 19th century.
So MAL finally starts locking news threads that are only a few weeks old?

I wonder where was the announcement of this change? Or we are seeing yet another case of changes made that impacted users but not communicated to them?

I wonder how long people would put up with this.

As much as I have a bunch of information to share about anime announced recently I cannot share it in news board, and the anime series is too disorganized and chaotic to share information except with people already interested in the particular series.

Jizzy as you would call yourself because youre a dick The most butthurt award goes to you And clearly you havent watched that many shows thats why you cant determine if a show is unique or not Or maybe you're just a child who likes common stuffs where hero saves the day and guys gets all the girls. Sad taste you have there kid you came up to me in the first place making you look more like a kid who got slapped without me even knowing it and start crying about it to me

An anime involving casinos and 19th century Kyoto's red light district? Sounds good to me.

Well after what Kaiji managed to make pachinko into, I am excited for this. Gambling animes/manga always gets me excited as long as they're trying to be logic and cool and not fanservice shit

LOL guys this is based on a pachinko game, not about a pachinko game.

Anyway, I like bakumatsu period anime, and it's Monkey Punch. Is this already in the DB?
