The DRRR news is probably the one I find most welcoming from this list. And, another season of Cardfight Vanguard announced....

I recall even more seasons announced in a news a few months ago.

There's no announcement yet, but I think it's 1 cour (12/13) each. If it's 2 cours (24/25) each, then it won't be a "split-cour".

So we'll probably get 4 60 min Tamayura movies. I'm fine with it. Just hope they don't mean 2 2-part movies.

And Tokyo Ghoul mangaka to start a new manga. I should read Tokyo Ghoul before reading his new work, though.

They are going to split Durarara into three seasons, huh. I guess, that's a good news.
Spin-off Manga of One Piece and Code Geass?? I hope that it will get an Anime adaption, too.
I'll keep an eye on Sui Ishida's upcoming new Manga. Might be related to Tokyo Ghoul.
Congratulations to Yuuko Sanpei~

Durarara news made my whole week already. I didn't think it'd be so many episodes coming out, 2015 is gonna be a good year! Though making it split cour makes it look like studio Shuka will only be depending on Drrr sales eh?
Also: They should try harder on Izaya's face and make it a taaad longer like before, or else the fangirls will get mad :P
