Scrud! What is this mysterious Scrud? I must learn the essence of this Scrud!

Sounds generic though, except for Scrud...

Premise looks somewhat similar to GATE. Also unknown staff in this project. Probably won't watch.

Edit: Wait, I just realized...VA and Director are the same...wtf???

so the main VA is also the director and scriptwriter? lol

how common is this in the anime industry?
Mirai Nikki is TRASH
Angel Beats is horrible.
Charlotte is a dumpster fire.
Shinsekai Yori has no characters.
Oreimo's S2 specials don't actually exist.

IM NOT AN ELITIST

I live to see the day where Hidamari Sketch or Little Witch Academia get another season.

And here I thought I was bad at naming stuff.

Lol, I don't trust this anime. But if there's more announcements like a PV maybe I'll try to watch it.

Okay so this is weird as fuck.

So an VA is also an script writer and director? what? I don't really see that so often nowadays and this is rather... interesting, for the wrong reasons.

But who knows this might turn out fun but Idk.
