Durarara!!x2 Ten will be the only thing l will watch despite probably being horribly rushed and bad animation

Prison School!!
I don't know if I should have read the Manga back then.

Never again watching JC staff garbage. In my opinion they're as bad as DEEN.

Loli + horror? I'm in!

I was hyped for prison school esp because best girl is in it but loljcstaff

Never again watching JC staff garbage. In my opinion they're as bad as DEEN.

Ghost in the Shell movie bc it's still the best whatever the type. And if I'm motivated (or desperated) enough Prison School.

Jun 1, 2015 7:45 AM by vnusia

Hopefully Prison School is better than what the PV had shown, because that PV is boring. I've also read a few chapters and found it to be rather average. Hope it's at least as good as how much people were hyping it to be.

Jun 1, 2015 3:33 AM by ToG25thBaam

I recommend to watch Gakkou Gurashi and Charlotte

May 31, 2015 10:33 PM by Xenocrisi

I doubt the Valkyrie Drive anime will be good, sad because the Vita game will end up kicking ass.

May 31, 2015 9:21 PM by Hoppy

Duararara HYPE

Also, I'm curious to see an animated PV version of Classroom☆Crisis soon. Same for Gakkou Gurashi!. Prison School has me hyped too. I'm highly anticipating it for Summer and I think the VA and staff choices are great.

May 31, 2015 9:13 PM by Stark700

So it's J.C. staff the ones behind Prison school.

alright !

Kiyoshi Fujino: Hiroshi Kamiya

High School Star Musical??
Okay, I know where this is going.

May 31, 2015 5:48 PM by Reverie

Can't wait for Charlotte <3
idk if i want to watch Prison School, i feel like it would be so much more awkward to watch it than reading the manga

May 31, 2015 5:35 PM by quietsnowfall

KanaHana for Midorikawa will be definitely interesting. Forgot about High School Star Musical, but will check it out again. Durarara!!x2 Ten has Mikado's seiyuu for OP song performance.

Chaos dragon pv looks good, also.excited for Durarara and Charlotte

May 31, 2015 3:05 PM by ccdewa

Oh, I actually guessed that HanaKana was going to play Chiyo. I'm actually more interested now to see how well she portrays Hana.

Best girl right here, although I haven't even read the manga.~

Chaos Dragon, Charlotte and Himouto! Umaru-chan are also looking good!

Many female audience might be turned off by Matsuoka playing a role in High School Star Musical. I say, he might just be the best boy.

Chaos Dragon PV video is broken, right code is BKKdGjsqDo8

Not much here, Chaos Dragon is looking nice and Prison School is looking extremely meh.


Prison School's Art in Manga is Godlike the Art in PV is kind of.. Idk what to say. But let's just wait and see how will it turn out. JC Staff is doing good with Shokugeki no Souma.
