Plenty of time for J.C. Staff to work on Heavy Object still. Anyways, looking forward to Arslan Senki, Food Wars, and Owari no Seraph. The Prison School preview makes me kinda nervous. Just hope they don't censor much...

J.C. Staff for Heavy Object? Sure, let's go with that, hope they don't work on anything for Summer.

Lol @ BL action movie.

That PV for Gargantia, hype.

Tamayura is just beautiful, no words.

RIP Shinji Ogawa, damn, we might still get to hear him in A/Z... that's sad.

Oh~, the news made it on MAL, yay~ ヾ(*´▽`*)ノ (By the way I definitely appreciate the use of "BL" here recently (?) instead of the usual "shounen ai"/"yaoi" like in the DB here on MAL.)

Hopefully he will soon be as healthy and lively as his comments make him seem!

They already announced "Shimoneta to Iu Gainen ga Sonzai Shinai Taikutsu na Sekai" for Summer a while ago. Hopefully, they'll give their best on Heavy Object though.

Shinji Ogawa died. That's a shame.

So is his role as the emperor in Aldnoah.Zero his final role then? Assuming nothing else has been pre-recorded.

I wonder if this will affect the last two episodes of Aldnoah? I'm sure they probably already had it tracked out... just wondering though.

Rest in Peace, though.

How is this not worth an own post, you heartless bastards? I know we're just a bunch of anime fans here discussing all kinds of weird shit, but even we should honor a person's death with a simple post at least. Jesus...

May you rest in peace, Stresemann-sensei. A wonderful seiyuu who undoubtedly defined the various roles he played. My heartfelt condolences go to his family and loved ones.

No, look at his face, man.
Anyway, I hope it's not censored as fuck.

Awesome news about Seven Days. :O

Ack, unfortunate news about Aoyama though, hope everything goes well.

I totally agree, so glad it's catching on! Though on goodreads.com people still use 'yaoi' for the most part. I think because it's such a popular tag by now, changing it would take some work/time. Now if only GL would catch on too... Though I sure wouldn't want 'NL' to catch on.
