I don't even care about Kid Icarus, but this is an interesting move and the choice of studios is great. Actually, now I feel like playing the original after all.

They aren't doing anything this Fall either. Looks like we have to wait until at least January for more Shaft.
And the winter show's probably gonna be Hidamari, which isn't my cup of tea.

Yes yes yes yes! Yes!! Yes! YES YES YES YES YES!!!!!!!

I am extremely happy! I must play the original Kid Icarus. Pit was my favorite character in SSBB! I kicked my brother's ass every time with Pit, even if he was also using Pit!

I must show my gratitude by watching this anime...

Huh, three animations of the same thing by different studios.
Seems pretty amusing, this'll be fun.

SHAFT is involved. Reason alone for me to give it a try.

Okay, just because it's Shaft.
