Hopefully Koufuku Graffiti sells, it's been a rollercoaster with Manga Time Kirara Adaptations, Kiniro Mosiac sold enough for a second season, Sakura Trick sold terribly, Gochiusa sold as well as Dog Days, and Hanayamata most likely won't sell well.

Aug 11, 2014 3:14 PM by Hoppy

Neon Alley will be free? Heck yes!

Aug 11, 2014 3:11 PM by soulless4now

A romantic comedy animated by Kyoto Animation. I'll put that one under the microscope, simply to see the evolution/devolution through time.

Will I live to see the day where Akiyuki Shinbo is not the director for a new SHAFT series? It's been like almost 7 years...


Love him or hate him he does well for SHAFT. He's one of the big names knocking about these days and so long as he's available he will lead the line animating for the company; given his popularity and the success and acclaim of most of his shows, they'd be silly not to utilise him whenever they can. I can't really speak for all his shows, but you've got the likes of the Monogatari series and Madoka Magica which a lot of people love, but recently Mekuka City Actors (which I haven't seen) which was met with much disappointment on here at least, but still seemingly managed to sell well; that's what he brings to the table even if some of his shows seem less-than-stellar to many people.

I can't see Shinbo not animating for SHAFT at this present time unless he takes a break or suddenly a mass of people go off his whole art style which everyone loves which would mean deteriorating acclaim for him. I've noticed a gradual increase in people complaining about Shinbo being "limited" and not doing anything different with his style which I can understand but it really doesn't bother me as much as it does some people, sure I would like to see him show if he can do anything different as a director but if he wants to continue doing the same thing as he's doing now then fine; so long as the people unhappy with his style stays a minority then he doesn't have much to worry about.

I haven't even noticed this was scheduled for Fall. I guess It's going to be REALLY average in every aspect. Taking into account that I have quite a solid number of shows I'm willing to watch this Fall I might end up dropping this unfortunately. But oh well, we'll see how this anime will start up.

Aug 11, 2014 12:02 PM by Hatsuyuki

Mm the animes don't look that bad but nothing sticks out to me o wel we shal just have to wait and see :D:P
