How many time Yamada - kun Need to release OVA (dammit release the TV series already)


They are teasing us. Either that or the studio is busy (probably with Assassination Classroom) with some other projects but a TV series is inevitable.

Momoko please for Girlfriend (Kari). I want her in the anime and for the anime to turn out well and not be the next Fantasista Doll.

Shigatsu wa Kimi no Uso is one of the shows I am looking forward to Fall the most. I hope the manga gets more attention once it starts airing as well. The latest PV was decent.

Looks like we finally got some news on Madan no Ou to Vanadis this Summer even though the announcement was made over a year ago.
