I was looking forward to GANGSTA., but after seeing the PV I can't say I'm as excited as I was. The action scenes looked bland; fight choreography lacking impact. Still, I'm willing to watch it.

Lay-duce is doing that Class Crisis show huh?

Wonder how that'll be. Relatively new studio with a pretty unimpressive track record.

There are lots more listed for casts with no character names announced not just Mizuki-san and Sakamoto-san (Namely Makino-san, who are back to seiyuu industry recently).

I completely agree.

Not much news,still 4 days until spring season so hyped for a lot of anime!

I knew it, I noticed the Tari Tari character designs right away when I saw the new Charlotte key visual, director debut too, let's see how it goes, hopefully well, 2 cours would be nice too for what seems to be marketed as "Angel Beats' spiritual successor".

Not too excited about that staff or studio for Classroom Crisis, anything could happen really but I'm looking forward to the show for the bikes alone, can't watch the PV because it's blocked for me too, maybe some other time.

Director and composition debuts in Taimadou Gakuen 35 Shiken Shoutai, eh, not really looking forward to it but will probably watch for sweet Silver Link action, the PVs will tell if it's worth it but in the end harem trash is still going to be harem trash.

That Lance N' Masques CM is all like "abandon hope all ye who enter here", sadly looks like it'll be another harem, gotta wait for better PVs really.
