Good to see those VAs getting more roles, they're very talented and deserve that.

DP's looking good. It will hopefully freshen up the otherwise dry winter season.

1 hour long F/SN episodes are always welcome.

Dec 15, 2014 5:31 PM by Resident

So hyped for Death Parade!

Dec 15, 2014 4:11 PM by MrAwesome2017

Absolute Duo, Death Parade and Junketsu no Maria all look good. But the best news is 1 hour long final episode for FSN

Dec 15, 2014 10:35 AM by thepath

but now......

Another 1 hour episode of FSN:UBW as a season finale can wait to the cliffhanger :)

Dec 15, 2014 8:25 AM by Nisx

Milky Holmes will not be like that Tsukihime of a season we had last time.

Dec 15, 2014 8:14 AM by Hoppy

Not a lot this winter :/

Dec 15, 2014 7:50 AM by Roth

Death Parade's PV looks really good.....and that OST!!
Get well soon, Mariya Ise <3

Dec 15, 2014 7:45 AM by Tengai

Tesagure! Bukatsumono gets even more seasons... as if 2 wasn't enough, CG SoL pls go and stay go.

Absolute Duo's PV describes this season perfectly: Absolute Disaster.

Death Parade looks nice but it really lacks any sort of potential, it's really something fit more for a movie than for a TV series, it'll probably be episodic, I just hope they don't reuse the same formula with different games and characters.

And seeing Military! doesn't really make me wanna pick it back up, whatever.

Tsukimonogatari too... ugh, the most annoying character in the show gets her own arc, hopefully it's not a waste of time.

Dec 15, 2014 7:42 AM by Paulo27

Death Parade PV looked really good.

Dec 15, 2014 7:32 AM by Z4k

Winter's lacking this season so I'm glad Death Parade got confirmed as one of the titles. Not used to the Digimon visuals yet tbh....

And for the rest of the news, the FSN one hour special will definitely be something to look forward to. Can't wait for that later this year.
