Wow, One Piece. Congrats bruh.

Jun 22, 2015 10:55 PM by Ochiibi

The Project Itoh is the only one i'm really looking forward to.

What caught my attention is the Chu Feng Bee anime. It's the first time I've read about it and it seems worth a try.

Jun 22, 2015 2:12 AM by Tomislavr7

One Piece's record is worth getting a news on its own imo

I'm still baffled about how a person's death doesn't warrant its own thread.

May he rest in peace.

Hyped for badass KanaHana as Liuli in Chu Feng: BEE! The PV looks amazing! Hopefully, she'll get some roles in Project Itoh as well.

Will probably be checking that out, I like a handful of the seiyuu.

Sakamoto Maaya is enough for me, getting hype for this one.

Kyoukai no Rinne (TV) - Currently airing

I kinda wanted to drop this, but I'll stick around for Saito Soma.

This anime just keeps getting better and better.

Congrats to One Piece.

Congrats to Oda and One Piece!

I was expecting Yoshitsugu Matsuoka to play the main character of Monster Musume. He's in like every ecchi which is why I assumed. And the One Piece news isn't surprising. It's super popular and it's been going for almost 20 years so this was expected at some point. Congrats to Oda-sensei though. Hopefully he can stay healthy so he can continue with this story for the remainder of its duration (which will be like 10 years lol)

An extra episode for Gunslinger Stratos? Oh boy...

Can't wait for Ushio to Tora. I'm also curious to see an animated PV of Classroom☆Crisis in the future, hopefully this week.

Jun 21, 2015 2:08 PM by Stark700

Apparently Ushio to Tora is getting a complete adaptation, a somewhat butchered one but complete nonetheless.

Shinmai Maou no Testament Burst <3
It's gonna be GOOD XD
Still gotta wait one more season :'(

nsfw of that scene

I think the One Piece news was worthy enough to get it own news section.
