"Sakurako-san" key visual is nice, but still going to think about it when there's cast announcement (hopes it would be the same as the radio drama).

I soooo dig the artstyle of Sakurako-san, man the key visual looks good. Well the human model could've been drawn better, especially the thigh part, but it doesn't really matter that much.

Also, like people have already mentioned, 2 mystery/murder anime? YESSS! <3 Omg I haven't been this happy since forever regarding news of anime. Haven't been enjoying anime much lately, not as much as I had in the past anyway, and I could see this bringing that joy back to me. :) This world could never have enough of murder/mystery anime, period.

Is Daisuki announcing that they're going to stream God Eater not important enough to count as news for this? Even if it's going to show up on the simulcast thread later, why not include it here too?

cant wait.

Hyped for 2 Murder-Mystery anime in the Fall! Hopefully both series will be handled well by their respective studios.

CG: Boukoku no Akito 4's PV is also looking good. Needless to say, Mushishi Zoku Shou: Suzu no Shizuku will be a 10/10 material.

I swear if A-1 fucks up the art I'm gonna take them to court

Wow! Subete ga F ni Naru will have Inio Asano as character designer! Let's see if it'll actually show in the anime though. We might just have ourselves another Psycho-Pass, where a mangaka designs the original character designs, but the actual anime looks nothing like it...

Mm, 2 murder/crime mystery series for Fall while we have another thriller mystery for Summer (not listed here though).

One interesting thing to note about the studio for Sakurako-san no Ashimoto ni wa Shitai ga Umatteiru is that it would be the first time that TROYCA took charge in an independent project.
