People want this. I want this. NOW.


But tbh, considering the monologue and the technicality of this LN, I doubt the animators are gonna have a fun time.


Yeah i just started reading this and I think it could make for a decent anime but I have no idea how they would handle all info dumps and inner monologue considering that is where half of the MCs characterization comes from.

I see KHR, Beelzebub and Binbougami ga. Why can't the anime continue? :(


Beelzebub needs a remake and it needs to stay as far away from Pierrot as possible. No good can come out of a Shonen Jump adaption from Pierrot. Beelzebub, Bleach and Naruto are examples of this.
i personally prefer Pierrot over many studios (Toei for example). yeah, Beelzebub have "dissapointing" ending, but overall i enjoyed the adaptation, even fillers was pretty good. my main problem was that i thought it will be a battle manga -.-


bad week for Kiruko-san, i guess.


The fillers were enjoyable, but the animation was horrible. My friend could've done better (he's an amateur, btw).

It needs to run for at least 2 years before getting an adaption. It will get ruined otherwise.

Only a matter of time before Biblia Koshodou no Jiken Techou gets an anime.

True. It always top the LN list. Will be waiting patiently for that :)


Not sure if an anime is likely when there already a live action adaption airing. I'd love it though.

I simply don't get how One Piece is so successful. Is it because of overrating and people buying it just as a trend, following they're fellows, or is that good? Frankly, I never managed to read One Piece, it isn't that great in my opinion.


If you never managed to read it, how do you know if it's great or not?


Sorry, misunderstanding, I never managed to actually keep reading it, I just can't find it interesting.

There is nothing in this world that can put all people agree 100%

One Piece had an interesting concept at the beginning, namely an RPG-esque world and adventure, where the MC goes and collect new members and goes in an adventure with a goal in mind and a set opponent, namely Shanks. The first pack of chapters were interesting in how the characters were handled and how great the potential of the series is, Oda has some nice story-telling and he handles the mystery of the world pretty well, as well as the depth of his characters. The high points of the series were Water 7, Sabaody Archipelago, Whitebeard War, and the setting for the New World before the time-skip (which happened like 2 years ago). Too bad it started going downhill from there on.
