Lol this one's too obvious, I bet it's Shana season 3. :P


*cough* Black Lagoon 3 *cough*

It's even been confirmed that it's under production so I find that to be much more likely.

I'm gonna guess only about 2/X amounts will be huge hits.

the first one is probably Shana season 3


That's the only probable thing we can get from this. One of the Star Child can be a new Negima series.
