Yay! Some news for Grisaia no Kajitsu! Now to find out when it's going to air.....

Also, I see that the cast for the new anime has changed, with the exception of Usagi. I wonder how good they will sound like this?

Oh, by the way, "Rin Satou" is really named Rina Satou.

I'm just hoping they won't throw out some half-assed adaption though, considering how long that game was.

Almost 20 years since I watched Sailor Moon in local TV, I like it then but not sure what to feel for this new series. Guess I will try a few episodes first before I decide.

A bit uneasy about 8bit doing Grisaia. My fingers are really crossed for this one.

Whats the problem? Their animation level is above average. And the quality of adaptation depends on director and main scriptwriter not the studio.

Pretty nice PV. It's got pretty interesting premise, balanced gender cast, and the train cars don't seem to be done in crappy CG. I also like the brawling scene with some thugs at the last couple of seconds, which means it will have some actions and not just some boring story about trains. The girls with unnaturally huge breasts kinda put a little damper on my expectations though.

The new character designs for Sailor Moon look really weird to me, but will have to wait and see for the animation.
