OMG I love Lost Canvas. I can't wait to see it!

I still need to watch the Elysium Chapter and this is announced. Well, only the more to watch. I just hope the animation gets some overhauling, it's getting rather old very quickly now. If it ever gets the animation that the Heaven Chapter had, I'm gonna enjoy it much more.

I've heard rumors about a possible Lost Canvas anime, I'm glad it's official now. I'm surprised that it will be an OVA. Hopefully it'll be better than Hades Inferno and Elysium.

Great to hear that,here in Brazil we have all chapter scanned and up to volume 8 published.

I am a scorpio and like Kardia so more than Milo.And i will love to see he fighting in a anime version.It was of the best manga fights a ever seen.

Good to know that one of my favorite manga,will become an OVA,so just don't be crappy like Hades Inferno and Elisium.And it's based on one of the greatests works of Kurumada,but i want new Ring ni Kakero OVA.I saw the RnK manga raws in Mirc but i just can't use this.RnK is great i want so much to see the rest.
