Hmmm Log Horizon studio changed. Is Studio DEEN good? Can't wait for the new CG OVA. Hopefully this time we actually get some focus on Lelouch.

Another set of seiyuus for Girlfriend(Kari) and pretty good ones at that. They're seriously going all the way with the casting. They're still missing Horie Yui, Itou Shizuka and Nana Mizuki though.

I can't stop playing that Psycho Pass 2 theme song for the PV. Speaking of sequels, I'm not ecstatic about the studio change. I'm just hoping they will stick to the source material faithfully at least even if there are 2 volumes (+ a third one) left to adapt.

I don't think there's an animated PV for Seiken Tsukai no World Break yet though. At least we got a confirmation that it will air next year.

Hopefully Togashi's health gets better soon. I'm hoping still...

There were also news that hirunaka has only three chapters left now, so soon it's time to have some reading marathons! <3

Wow PP2 is also getting a studio change? :o Wasn't expecting that. Hmm only watched a few anime from Tatsunoko so not sure what to expect.

Log Horizon 2 on the other hand, I think it's not that terrible of a news. I mean I know Studio DEEN gets quite a lot of hate, but I don't think they can do a worse job than Satelight, considering how the first season wasn't really beautiful or anything to look at. Anyways looking at the PV, it doesn't seem like there are any major changes in the art style, it looks good actually.

Another hiatus for Hunter x Hunter? NOOOO!

Meanwhile, I really liked the Kino's Journey anime, so reading a SAO novel from that author would be interesting. I hope Yen Press licenses it.

DEEN will probably milk Log Horizon for all it's worth just like they have done with previous animes once considered good until DEEN took over.
