What? No :(

I guess it's good to end a series while it's going strong instead of dragging it out, but that's still bad news. Then again "a few more volumes" is kinda vague...

I think I've read somewhere that it will end after 3 more volumes. There are currently 3 volumes already out iirc so 6 volumes total maybe.

2 Anime oldies that I used to watch and enjoy when I was a kid will be back again.
My brain keeps on telling me that Sword Art Online II will air this coming Spring season but I know that it will not. It's nice to know the real airing date, it's going to be hyped as shit!!!
I am really excited for Mahouka Koukou no Rettousei and Soredemo Sekai wa Utsukushii. It looks good and I like the voice cast.
Kana Hanazawa in Tokyo Ghoul :3
Shingeki no Kyojin English Dub Cast.....I shall check how it sounds.
Koe no Katachi is ending, I guess I should read it soon, the art looks really nice.
A lot of Gintama characters there at that poll.

Hahahaha I love this!!! As a female otaku myself my picks from this list would be:

Hajime Saitou and Harada Sanosuke (I mean chile please, who in their right mind would not want to date any of the Shinsengumi guys from Hakuouki?? Hot, strong, honorouble, loyal and sexy?? Uuuum of course!!lol Saitou would be my number one choice. He seemed like the kind to love intensely!lol Sanosuke was funny warm and sweet. I'd totally date him too.

Its great seeing the Gintama guys doing great here! I was so surprised to see Gin as number one! I burst out laughing!! He would be such a fun boyfriend to have that is if he loved you in the first palce of course. Otherwise you'd just be following him around the way Ayame does.hahaha

Makoto chan!! Who in the world wouldn't date Makoto Tachibana!!! Sexy, sweet as pie and absolutely adorable!! Of course!!
hahaha Naru, I had the exact same face when I learned how to read all my Kana. Barakamon is everything!!:'D
