Fuck yes Tsukimonogatari. How is that the final season? They might just adapt the other books into movies.

The LN is titled Final Season, but there'll be another sequel titled Next Season (LN -> http://myanimelist.net/forum/?topicid=1277561).

Cool, thanks for confirming

Regarding Tsukimonogatari....it will air as 4 episodes consecutively on Japan's New Eve.

The poster confirms that the adaptation will span four episodes airing concurrently on New Year's Eve in Japan and will be released on home video in 2015.

It is merely part of the "Final Season" novels. No one said it'll be the final season of the anime series. In fact, it is said they plan to animate all the series, though they didn't say whether they'll be TV series or not.

The new PV for Ansatsu Kyoushitsu made me hyped! I kinda laughed when I heard Nagisa's voice though haha.
Can't wait for Book of Murder as well.

Oct 20, 2014 8:55 AM by Andressina

Kuroshitsuji: Book of Murder
I hope the ova will be long 1 hour maybe.

So it's only Okamoto Nobuhiko who's coming back from the cast of the Jump Special. He's the only one who fits Karma I guess. There are some seiyuus there that I'm familiar with but to be honest, I still don't remember the names of the student cast. Most of them are hardly in focus in the manga and are mostly irrelevant. Let's hope I can remember them when the anime airs.
And FukuJun fits Korosensei better than Tomokazu Seki. It's all good for me.

Oct 20, 2014 7:38 AM by belatkuro

Oh yeah, Tsukimonogatari. I hope they adapt the rest as well.

Oct 20, 2014 7:32 AM by Okashi

That Ansatsu Kyoushitsu additional cast *o*
I can read Piano no Mori now.

Oct 20, 2014 7:24 AM by Tengai

Tsukimonogatari....well, they will probably adapt the rest of the novels so I'll look forward to this one for sure.

Really still keen on seeing a new animated PV for Ansatsu Kyoushitsu (TV). Hyped for Book of Murder as well.

Tsukimonogatari, I'm feeling happy and sad for this.

Oct 20, 2014 5:31 AM by Cheeeeeeese

DAT BOOK OF MURDER OMG <3
