Eh I don't have much to comment on this..

Somewhat curious to know if Denki-Gai no Honya-san will be a short series in the future. I'm kinda meh on a few titles but definitely looking forward to Sailor Moon, GnP, and Space Dandy 2.

Naoto Takayama: Jun Fukuyama

I don't know, but Fukuyama voicing this guy on PV just doesn't work for me. Don't get me wrong, he is a pretty good actor when heâs in his sweet spot, but his deep rumble sounds ludicrous coming from this kind of character. The strain of trying to sound like fifteen years old boy getting worse with each performance.

This is what I'm wondering as well..

Anyways, the show won't be here until Fall so there's plenty of time to confirm it until then.

I'm disappointed that Himegoto is a short series. Thats probably the only non action anime worth watching.

Tokyo Ghoul, Salor moon and Momo Kyun Sword look good

Denki-gai no Honya-san seems interesting, but man... Fall seems to be crowded of many interesting shows. As for Summer, I will pick Hanamonogatari, Gekkan Shoujo Nozaki-kun, and Psycho Pass.

Not just you. I also don't really like the art, but I will give it a chance for 3 episodes.

How does Gen even have time to go to Anime Expo? He seems to have SO MUCH stuff upcoming...

By the way, if you're into classical music in anime look out for Shigatsu wa Kimi no Uso (http://myanimelist.net/anime/23273/Shigatsu_wa_Kimi_no_Uso) for Fall/winter season. Seems like it could be pretty good, especially since it should have 22 episodes according to MAL.
