I'm just saying that he shouldn't take main roles just yet.
And just start with supporting roles instead, so people can know he's voice first.
@Kuma,
Thanks, and was the manga really good?
well... if you can bear the art, sure it's good read.

Also the fan translations online use Dimple already so why change it now

That's why. No point arguing about these kind of things as it's already being brought up lots of times already in the past.

no cause Dimple is a nickname. nicknames are different. it's weird to have a nickname untranslated cause no-one would understand the meaning of it

Damn! This looks good. :D
I'm way more interested in this than I was in One Punch Man. Will definitely check it out when it starts.

The people at the studio chose the cast and they know his voice. It's not like we can change anything even if we know his voice and it's not like we haven't been surprised before when a studio didn't just go with the typecasts for characters. Besides, the MC is supposed to be a plain person so some unknown seiyuu's voice will fit him just fine.

He was mainly talking about the art of the manga. It has the same art as the one in the PV if not worse, as the one in the PV is more polished and consistent. That might be a bit off-putting for some people. If you like the comedy in OPM, then you might like this one but don't really expect it to be the same as OPM. It has less action and more teen SoL compared to OPM. About which is better, well, it's really subjective.

Looks awesome! I'm definitely looking forward to it!

I'm sure the art style will put off a lot of people, but that looks fantastic. Bones putting in the work...


It's quite excentric but I like it. And the animation looks fucking neat.

I'm not so sure about the laser SFX used for their esper powers, it makes it little silly, which would still work though

Mar 24, 2016 6:18 PM by Tatsu765

Hopefully it won't be like One Joke Man. I'll endure it just for Kenji Kawai anyway...
