Monte Christo is always appreciated, I reread the book currently and the sheer monumental power behind it is still fascinating.

Gugure! Kokkuri-san is the most anime I'm looking forward to.
Looks like Magic Kaito is also promising.

And there was a new CM for F/SN out a few days ago. I think it should be added.
Looks like we missed that one. I've added it now, thank you!

And yet No Madan no Ou to Vanadis' PV

Sep 8, 2014 8:55 AM by Okashi

Dunno why but I was really hoping for Sugita to play Rurick. Damn.
And it's Bertrand and Mashas Rodant as seen in the Characters Tab.
Still no PV yet for Vanadis. What's up with that? I want to know how they would pronounce Zchted.

Miyano as Gilthunder? NnT has some pretty good names under it. Let's hope the quality is there as well.

And there was a new CM for F/SN out a few days ago. I think it should be added.

Still no animated PV for Madan no Ou to Vanadis yet.....
