Can't wait for Ajin

Edit: Nvm that CG is just hideous!


CG?? :/
Yes. I thought I was the only one who noticed that. What the hell. It looked horrible. :/ There goes the hype.

But anyway, good to have more Kamisama Hajimemashita. Dat "nee kamisama, warui ko ni naritai yo" still stuck in my head. XD The last part of the PV is like straight out of a horror movie.

I'll keep an eye out for this one, I guess, and a few others.
I need something good. And soon, because this year's seasons have been weak.

I don't even care that much for this, but I like Saito Soma, it's nice to see him in more roles.

Looking forward to TG Jack, seems to have good animation unlike the parent series.

The PVs for the parent series were the same. What're you expecting from Pierrot? This might not suffer as much as S2 since it's an OVA but I'm not holding my breath, cause it's Pierrot.

I think I would like to watch Classroom Crisis.

Thank you, Snow.

Those PVs are really making me dread next season. Game of Laplace has all of the telltale signs of a hilarious trainwreck - a Lerche original, noitaminA, AND Kishi Seiji? Bring your popcorn!


gotta love people who judge before it even start

they have done a great job with AssClass but they have been shit with danganrompa.
It can be good, but it can be shit too yeah.

But dont assume thats its gonna be a trainwreck before it even started.

(dat trap tho ... ._.)
