Literally Nothing Happened: The Week.
Re-Kan looks like crap, sasuga Pierrot Plus. Just hurry up and go away, Winter.
Was also think of watching Etotama but god damn that animation, it's like I'm watching a *bad* MapleStory trailer, but even those look better recently as this looks like it's 6 years out of date, music is really good though, might consider it when we get more info.

Just now read the first chapter of Kuusen Madoushi.. it was below average.. the voice cast seems to be brimming with talent with the likes of Yoshitsugu Matsuoka, Nao Toyama, Risa Taneda and Kakihara Tetsuya.. having this feeling that this anime and manga would be pretty bad o.O

My body is so ready for this. I'm not sure how the original series will look but EoE should come out looking beautiful with its remaster. So without futher ado...

I hope Re-Kan! won't be a short series.

Eh, nothing else really interests me on this list. Winter is drawing close though so we may expect some previews coming this week.

Ari Ozawa (CV of Sakura Chiyo) is voicing a character in Etotama.. Hmm.. Could watch it.
