hoping Zankyou no Terror does well so MAPPA finally will have the money to do the anime for Pluto. Also I need to own dat Jojo's

Great choice. This is what more anime should do. Teenaged characters being voiced by actual youngsters (Ishikawa's still in his early 20). Because seriously, far too many male voice on anime already sounds too obnoxious for my taste. Some of them (Fukuyama, Sugita, Nakamura) often sound like a bunch of daddies in a party pretending they're their sons.

Phantom Blood? If you've been watching JoJo, Phantom Blood is the first arc of JoJo lol. And I don't see anything JoJo-related here anyway.


In the Manga News section of the OP, way down at the very bottom. ;)

Blade Dance is missing the links to the seiyuus:

Carol Nastasha: Manami Tanaka
Graywarth Sharmais: Mai Nakahara <- This is probably Grayworth or Greyworth. Graywarth seems awkward.
Jio Inzagi: Yoshitsugu Matsuoka <- direct katakana spelling
Lestia: Youko Hikasa <- This could be Restia as well since L and R are similar in Japanese.

These are great seiyuu picks for these roles nonetheless, especially for Restia. The main cast are all somewhat newbies except for Kido Ibuki so let's see how they will all do.
Yeah I think Restia should be spelled with R.

Hmm interesting, Ookami Shoujo to Kuro Ouji is in there. There's still time to announce it as an anime for Summer although I expect Fall to be a much more likely choice with a 1 cour. (possibly OVA in the future).

Still no PV for Jinsei yet, shame. I am pretty excited to see Zankyou no Terror though.
