Wow, I never thought about it, but were already at the 5th season, that's awesome. I'm glad it's still going on, the last season was the best and I hope this one will be just as sweet.

I am so happy that they are making another season! I didn't expect this at all, please air asap.

It will also help to relieve the wound caused by Berserk. Feeling real bittersweet right now! (• ε •)
