    nothing really new so far.

    The Urobuchi show this summer and F/SN this fall are driving me crazy with anticipation. While there's a bunch of other anime worth checking out, those two are my personal favourites already. Last week's PV's only added to the excitement.

    Fuuuuuuuuuuuuck yeahhhhhhhhh!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Definitely looking forward to Kuroshitsuji. Circus arc is definitely the best and the most morally conflicting arc of the series

    Just hope the script (Grrh Mari Okada!) won't screw up again like the 2nd season that completely derails from the manga and just turned into manservice galore.

    I can't wait for Black Butler! X3 It's about time they started following the manga. Hopefully this season WILL be like the manga.

    I've been waiting MONTHS for Love Stage! to air. I wanna watch it already!!! o( > . < )o

    Looks like Fall is gonna be a pretty action-packed season, F/SN, Terra Formars, Kiseijuu and whatever I've missed or waiting to be announced. Even Tokyo Ghoul would've already pick up in action by the Fall.
    Akame ga Kill! also looks like it will be airing in Fall too :P


    Tokyo Ghoul is a Summer show I think. Where did you get the news that Akame ga Kill is airing this Fall btw?

    Huzzah, I was hoping Terra Formars would be a fall show.

    That's the same one as the one posted in last Briefs, just more clearer ver. The CM has been replaced with new one.

    The database has been updated with the airing date listing for Fall.

    It is added now. Thank you.

    Hopefully Sora no Method will be something happy for the most part and not be sad from start to finish like Anohana.

    May 12, 2014 4:44 PM by Hoppy

    So much hype for F/SN. I'm also looking forward to K: Missing Kings. I'll be watching the world premiere in July~

    The Gokukoku no Brynhildr update implies that the anime will skip an arc from the manga. Otherwise, here's another PV of Free S2 coming this summer:
