Lol I just submitted the news about 2-3 minutes around the time this was posted

Good news of course. I might re-watch part of the movie again to remind myself of this.

I wonder if this will air during Spring though. Parasyte is a 2 cour running on the same station also by Madhouse so it's fairly possible.

Sweet I really liked this one.

So I'm guessing we'll get a different game and pair each episode.

Never would have expected this, really looking forward to it. However, one of the reasons I like Death Billiards as much as I do is that you could interpret it in many different ways and I hope the anime won't ruin that.

YESSSS

It's been a while since we got a Madhouse original series and DB was a great Anime Mirai short in a strong year.
This makes the second time that an Anime Mirai project got expanded (LWA2 was the first) and I think this has a lot of potential.

This is great news. Death Billiards really intrigued me the first time I watched it and I was rather bummed that it was a one off special.

Whoa, awesome! Didn't see this coming. I'm just wondering how they'll extend the story to work as a full series. It's definitely going to be interesting, and it looks promising from the PV.

Sounds very interesting (Sadly, I've never heard of Death Billiards before now. I'm so freaking ignorant. *sulks*). Will definitely watch. :)

Why is Madhouse so good? This looks amazing, I was waiting for them to finish Parasyte but it seems like I've got even more stuff to look forward to.

So unexpected and so absolutely welcome. The short movie was already pretty good.

And Madhouse is another plus in my book.

OH MY GOD!!!! I CAN'T BELIEVE IT!!

But really, would it be as interesting as a series? I have to ponder on that, gonna rewatch it right now! EDIT: It can be an episodic series, with different players' situation. *nod nod* It can be very excellent. :)

btw, I freaking love the OST in the pv. It fits perfectly.
