Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah, Rolling Girls, whyyyyyyyyyyyy, all I wanted was cute girls on cutes bikes riding across the country doing nothing in particular but that PV looks like something straight out of KLK, god damn it, Winter, why do you suck so much?

My hype for Cinderella Girls went down a lot after the PV, I haven't seen such a poor main character selection in a while. No way in hell they can even compete with Love Live (it's like sending Fez against a Mario game), and a lot of the fanbase is to blame (and A-1 for listening to them, a little research will tell you how bad and boring the taste that the CG fanbase in Japan has).

The great news is that Rolling Girls may make up for the hype void and Dog Days" has a 99% chance of redeeming A-1 for their poor decision.

But A-1 is not the one doing Dog Days", Seven Arcs is (same with S1 and S2).

I bet Owari no Seraph will be a Spring show. Still, I can't wait for Kekkai Sensen. Also hoping to see a full preview for Yuri Kuma Arashi in the future.
