PVs/TV Ads
A collection of promotional videos and TV advertisements from the past week.
Note: All PVs/CMs from the Winter season can be found on our Winter 2015 Preview thread found here.

So many good PVs this week!

Owari no Seraph with Hiroyuki Sawano working as the music producer? Automatic watch :D

The Shoukugeki no Souma PV looks epic. It's like watching Food Network in anime form, but with a story. And then eating delicious food gives the characters orgasms LOL

Waiting patiently for Owari no Seraph but will the anime be for the better or worse?

Haru Onodera: Sakura Ayane


If you're using the Western naming convention, then it should be Ayane Sakura, not Sakurs Ayane.


Anyway, lineup for Spring looks to become very interesting.

Is it me or does the cover of Etotama looks like Haruhi Suzumiya...

Vampires~
Haven't been following the manga but will watch anyway. Erina looks gorgeous~
I wasn't crazy about the first Tamayura OVA but the art for the first movie kind of makes me want to give the sequels another chance.

The Owari no Seraph announcement is a major one considering it will be 2 cour split (Spring/Fall) so I assuming they will be adapting a large part of the LN. The music is exactly what it sounds like from you-know-who.

Owari no Seraph is originally a manga and the anime adaptation is based on that. The latest raw is currently around chapter 28 iirc and still in the middle of an arc. They're probably splitting it up to give time for the manga to finish its current arc so they will probably adapt around the same chapters as SnK S1 (33 chapters).

The LN is a spin-off focusing on Guren/Glen. Maybe they will adapt it too later if all goes well with the sales. :3

Hello!! Kiniro Mosiac will be great for sure as well as Etotama, hopefully Kinmosa gets a Spring release as it will be a nice cool down from the big Winter season.

Not sure what else to say. Perhaps Project Itoh's third preview will stream this week on Thursday again so be on the look out for that.

I'm not sure about that because Noitamina anime is taking two holidays off.


Oh yeah, I forgot about that. Maybe next year then.
