I'm excited, to say the least. Fall '15 is looking good, if anything it's the season I've been most excited for.

Ushio to Tora (TV)
Additional cast members were announced. It was also announced that the series will be split cours, with 26 episodes airing from July to December and 13 episodes during spring.

Oh, so 39 episodes all up! I'm down for that!

I'm very excited for OPM. So excited all my hair fell out.

You guys are not nearly excited enough for One Punch Man.

Well done. I guess the Stop Locking News Threads group is unnecessary now. I for one am very pleased with the changes. Especially the seiyuu and anisong part. It's like you all saw the light and have been converted lol. Alas if symbv could see this...

The system that was implemented did not make much sense and created unnecessary work for the News Team in my opinion (i.e. putting together this brief). This new system seems much better in my opinion.

the Ushio to Tora news regarding the episode count isn't too surprising. great for the series though, considering the manga is 300+ chapters.

the plethora of episodes was something that Yamada-kun could've really used, 'tis a shame.

RIP Toshifumi Takizawa.

Not noted here (?), but it's SO awesome of them to be recording two versions! ヽ(o'▽'o)ノ♪

KanaHana is playing a role in Ushio to Tora (TV)? All the more reason to get hyped!

A beacon of hope in the filthy wasteland that is the upcoming season. More episodes means more development, which means it might actually be good. Synopsis says otherwise, but we'll see.

Thanks for the news.

How about moving the PVs to the actual post, Snow? With the new News page it'd be better.

Jun 28, 2015 4:28 PM by Paulo27

The new animated PV for Classroom☆Crisis was interesting tbh. And we got a few existing titles announced for Fall. Hype for One Punch Man!

Also really looking forward to Ushio to Tora.
