Ono back in the anime? I was already afraid that he disappeared from the screens.
Level of my english is still too poor, so ask not particularly angry because of my terrible grammar.

Finally we have confirmation on when this will air. The title of this season sounds awesome, and I'm excited to hear the new cast (Escanor hype!).

Hopefully the dude in charge of series composition won't fuck it up, his track record isn't exactly the greatest.

Damn it! A-1 Pictures should be bombed and get destroyed to the ground!
They done/will do a lot of garbage anime in the past/coming seasons instead doing this!
This is a terrible news to start my week, this is just bad!

The seiyuu cast for the new characters is awesome! Can't wait for the new season... though I may get impatient enough and end up reading the manga.

Just read the manga, A-1 Pictures is the worst of the worst to adapt anything into anime.
It undoubtedly gonna end up like Season 1. (2016 is to cover up their fucked up ending of S1)
So just read the manga and don't watch their garbage animated works.

I will eventually read the manga, but I'll still watch the adaptation. If I can tolerate the new Berserk seasons, I think I can tolerate almost every single adaptation, despite how poor they are. I'm not gonna defend A-1 since I'm aware of how bad they are when it comes to adaptations, but they don't always screw up. Shigatsu wa Kimi no Uso
was a faithful adaptation to the point where I preferred the anime over the source material. Who knows, maybe A-1 will do justice with this new season...

Sugita as Escanor is going to be glorious. I hoped that there will be a different voice actor for Zeldris (I can't even get used to Kaji's performance as Meliodas. Though arguably his voice fits more Zeldris than to Meliodas). Rest of the cast is good, even though I expected Gloxinia to be voiced either by Mitsuki Saiga or Junko Minagawa.

Sugita as Escanor! I cannot believe this is happening! I always use his voice in my head for Escanor when I'm reading the manga. xD

Sugita as Escanor is a pretty nice pick! Although when it comes to the staff changes I'm quite skeptical a bit about it, then again the first season wasn't that great but I do need to re-watch it, as well as continuing on with the manga from where I left it off.

That staff change is not good, basically everyone from Season 1 is gone.

We'll see what happens when it actually airs but can't say I'm as hyped now unfortunately.

Well that took them long enough. I wondered when this was going to come out after the announcement of a 2nd season. I guess it's because of the staff change and the massive addition of seiyuus they had to get. With talent like that, A-1 Pictures better not screw this up. Regardless, I'm still watching this especially since I get to hear more Ayahime.

Dropped the manga a while ago, just wasn't feeling it. Will watch the second season, maybe it will revitalize my interest in the series.

Although I lost interest in the manga I'm still gonna give it a chance, maybe the animated version will give me a different impression.

Yeah, I just checked and you're right, I must've missed that somehow....
I thought that the last annoucement we had was about "Seisen no Shirushi" and a vague promise of another season but nothing more.
