u probably never seen shinsekai yori

or Space Brothers, or AnoHana, or, Silver Spoon, or.... but hey, it is all matter of opinion , right? So give me a break with your “haven’t produced anything memorable” BS...

What’s “memorable” for you, might not be “memorable” for me, and vice-versa.

cries at space brothers and shinsekai yori

I'm waiting on a PV for this one, I've had my eye on it for a fair while.
I have way too much faith in MAPPA so I'll probably watch this anyway.

Summer '15 isn't really shaping up yet, I'm only genuinely excited for Gangsta., and the rest I'm just kinda gonna throw myself into the deep end with.

Jun 14, 2015 9:02 PM by Bird

Great cast for Denpa Kyoushi.

Excited for Gate and Classroom Crisis.

Jun 14, 2015 8:32 PM by ChiuraKazuki

Gate is very interesting to me. We don't have any new PVs for God Eater do we? There's an announcement video and one PV right? Or any information about episode counts for the series starting in summer (especially the originals or God Eater or Gate)?

From this list, I’m looking forward to Gate, Classroom Crisis, Ranpo Kitan, and Ushio to Tora.

In my opinion, A-1 has yet to produce anything memorable, so I'm not gonna start expecting them to now. Then again, such things tend to be the fault of the source material or writers and not the studio itself.

Gate: Jieitai Kanochi nite, Kaku Tatakaeri looks better than what A-1 gave us this season.

You better not fuck it up this time, A-1.

the art style for jitsu wa watashi wa kind of puts me off, but you never know, it'll probably be decent. i'll check out the first episode, probably.

ergh, i'm kind of iffy on gate:, too. it looks interesting, and i love the character designs from what i've seen from PVs, but there's the possibility that A-1 won't do a good job with it, considering their track record.

well, yeah but still usually they do better for the animation than what we got with Denpa kyoushi and gunslinger stratos.
