Actually, I'd appreciate this one. Cyc is by far the best eroge maker out there, and it would be great to see some of their games made into anime. Especially games of their "Black Cyc" subdivision. That won't happen though, unfortunately. :(

A Hayate x Negima short special would actually be very funny.

Also Nozomu.

lol'd at the yaoi one.

Nozomu-sensei...

The idea of collaborating the two animes sound good, but I doubt it will ever occur though. Instead, I think the collaboration would make a better game than anime.

A lice action Queen's Blade movie? That's the best idea I've heard in a while :)


That's exactly what I was thinking, when I read this. Live Action Queen's Blade would be great.
