Gonzo is back for Sore ga Seiyuu? Ugh, just why are they still around, the PV was ok because it was really safe overall but I'm worried about everything else. Wasn't particulalrly excited for this one but eh, might still give it a try.

Looking forward to Kokoro ga Sakebitagatterunda but that trailer, hm, don't know, failed to excite me I guess, it was just too calm.
And "The coming of age story that enveloped all of Japan in emotion" I'm gonna guess bad translation because this would be getting ahead of themselves.

Bakemono no Ko, on the other hand, left me really excited.

Some interesting picks for voice acting choices in regards to Monster Musume no Iru Nichijou. Hope to see a PV soon in the upcoming weeks.

That Bakemono no Ko movie also looks quite interesting.

Well, that was unexpected.

Bakemono no Ko is looking good. Probably be one of the best anime of Summer.

Hopefully Death Note live action TV will be decent just like the films.

Really can't wait for Bakemono no Ko & Kokoro ga Sakebitagatterunda. The PV's are gorgeous. Action + humor for the first one, emotion + an interesting atmosphere for the second one.
It's been a while since I felt so excited about new releases ^^

don't worry, he's a really good director with a lot of connections to other young talents like himself. the show will look good with rather flamboyant animation.

Lol and Doukyuusei revealed as a movie didn't make the 19th of April, so will be announced next week instead I guess.
