Happy to hear that Shingeki No Kyojin is going to keep going for the next few years! Now all I can do is hope all of my favorite characters survive. -_-'

What do you consider milking? Lol it seems like just continuing your own manga is milking the series...


What most of these people don't realize is that snk is a monthly manga, meaning those 3-4 years are around 36-48 more chapters left in the series. To be honest that doesn't sound too much to me. It will end around chapter 100-110 almost the same exact amount of chapters like full metal alchemist which had 108 chapters. The series in total will have around 75 episode making it have 3 season in total.

That's not milking at all. These are just people that are annoyed/butthurt that snk is doing so well. I can understand people saying that snk is getting milk from having a lot of spin off series. But the main series isn't getting milk at all.


Agreed.
A lot of PVs this time. Did someone kiss my Aki-lucky?!?!

Ohhh, so Shingeki no Kyojin will take more 3 or 4 years to end, well, it was expected already, I didn't think it would end soon anyways.

I'm looking forward to Nanatsu no Taizai, I heard it is a good story, I might read the manga too.

I hope we get to see a full animated PV of Nanatsu no Taizai soon. Also, I am pretty sure this will be a 2 cour. The Strike Witches news looks kinda interesting. I also want to see Shingeki no Bahamut this October.

I can't wait for the announcement of new characters for Dog Days'', Yuuki Yuuna wa Yuusha de Aru is sounding better after each announcement.

Waiting for Inou-Battle wa Nichijou-kei no Naka de, I read the writer's other LN and I hope he came up with an unexpected plot for this one too. If he did I wanna see the reactions.

I think the school uniform of amagi briliant park look like chuunibyou's school uniform. Is it because of kyoani, or they actually look the same in the light novel?
